Only A Monster by Vanessa Len


It should have been the perfect summer. Sent to stay with her late mother’s eccentric family in London, sixteen-year-old Joan is determined to enjoy herself. She loves her nerdy job at the historic Holland House, and when her super cute co-worker Nick asks her on a date, it feels like everything is falling into place.

But she soon learns the truth. Her family aren’t just eccentric: they’re monsters, with terrifying, hidden powers. And Nick isn’t just a cute boy: he’s a legendary monster slayer, who will do anything to bring them down.

As she battles Nick, Joan is forced to work with the beautiful and ruthless Aaron Oliver, heir to a monster family that hates her own. She’ll have to embrace her own monstrousness if she is to save herself, and her family. Because in this story . . .

. . . she is not the hero.

My Review:

Are you ready for a monster story…

Joan all her life heard stories of monsters, little does she know, Joan is a monster herself. She accidentally discovered her powers and have fallen in love. The boy she end up liking turn out to be a monster hunter. When her family and other monsters are attacked. She makes a run for it with an unlikely allies. Joan must learn to control her powers and become the monster kiss are afraid of.

Only a Monster was a epic fantasy read. Still weird having normal name for a fantasy book. It kinda fits the book, since where it is set in. I say this book was very original and interesting read. Just love everything about it. You kinda feel bad for Joan not understanding where she came from. Your not even sure if she really a hero or villian in the making. This book has some crazy twists and fun to it. Also I just love the cover so much. I’m already looking forward to book two to come out.

Happy Reading!!!!
