Cole Harper is struggling to settle into life in Wounded Sky First Nation. He may have stopped a serial killer, but the trouble is far from over. A creature lurks in the shadows of Blackwood Forest, the health clinic is on lockdown by a mysterious organization, and long-held secrets threaten to bubble to the surface. Can Cole learn the truth about his father’s death? Why won’t Choch give him a straight answer? Where the heck is Jayne? Oh, and high school sucks.
Monsters is the second novel in The Reckoner trilogy, following Strangers.
A satisfying continuation of a moody, stylish series. Readers will eagerly anticipate the third volume.
Highly recommend that you pick this one up.
We truly need more books like David A. Robertson’s Reckoner series. Combining First Nation mysticism and addressing mental health into a thriller of a tale, this series has so much to offer adults as well as middle graders.
Monsters is available as an eBook in ePUB and PDF formats and as an audiobook in mp3 format. Select a format using the “choose your option” drop-down menu to the left and checkout as usual. You will be sent an email with instructions to download the file.
