Late at night, while everyone is sleeping, dreaming of white knights and fairytales. I’m making friends with the monsters.

They call to me, like finds like, right? My biggest secret, I’m the scariest monster I know.

Thoughts on Friends With The Monsters

Dark yet not

There was certainly darkness in this novel, but not like you might be expecting. No, while the shadows came from the monsters, they are really friends and the impulses of the soul seem normal and acceptable. The actual darkness of the main FMC, comes from loneliness and sorrow… and that bleeds through almost every action she takes. Yet, looking at it, that might not even be darkness but a forced solitude that changes her. The evil, well, that is embodied in creatures that are all too human.

Very interesting book.

  • Never really know what she is, or why she is… which I like.
  • The trio is fantastic.
  • Grim… I love Grim.
  • Melodic in tone.
  • It’s about monsters, but it’s not. This is a study in human nature and the price of loneliness.
  • That cover!! (PixieCovers)


  • Multiple POV would have been beneficial.
  • There should be a book 2, but there is no indication of series title on the cover?
