What is it about?

(Blurb from GoodReads)

As the daughter of Dracula, you would think I’d be born the perfect monster.

You couldn’t be more wrong.

As far as monsters go, I’m a screw up—if I’m not tripping over my own feet, I’m accidentally murdering someone (it’s a real issue, guys).

Left with no choice, Dad decides to send me to Prodigium—otherwise known as Monster Academy—to train me on how to be a better monster.

When bodies turn up on campus, I’m the prime suspect (not that I can blame them. I’ll be pretty suspicious too if bodies drained of blood show up right after Dracula’s daughter arrives).

With the help of my mortal-nemesis Vin, Van Helsing’s son

Frankie, Frankenstein’s son

Mason, Medusa’s son

And Jack (sometimes Hux), Dr. Jekyll’s son

I might have a chance of uncovering the truth.

If I’m not murdered first.

The struggles of being a vampire, am I right?

This is a horror comedy reverse harem with some dark elements. After all, you can’t have a bunch of monsters without some darkness. This is book one of a series.

Thoughts on Monsters

4.5 rounded up

This is a hysterical romp, the kind of tale you’d expect from Katie May. There’s mystery, romance, paranormal hijinks and enough humor, both innocent and raunchy, to keep the pages turning. Like most of her stories, it ends on a cliffhanger and is a delightful slowburn, but it’s the perfect mixture of action and general WTF? 😂

Favorite Lines:

I am a good girl. Promise. I haven’t killed anyone in over two years, and I always clean up after I eat. (1%)
I take one last helpless glance at my cute canopy bed, the severed head on my dresser (because everyone has one), and the spiderwebs on the wall. I named the little guy Peanut. The spider, not the head. The head’s name is Bob. (4%)
Oh, your cock shoots out cum. How quaint. My pussy? Yeah. We have blood, motherfuckers. (12%)
Girls, you’ll be lying if you say you never had a torture sex dream. Thirsty bitches, the whole lot of you. And yes, I’m calling you out soccer mom Shannon. (85%)


  • Very, Very Funny!
  • The next generation of monsters.
  • Her inner monologues are the stuff of legend.
  • The monster mix is on point.
  • So many questions!


  • Only bad thing? Cliffhanger without the next book out….. and that’s just the way things go, lol! I’m not crabby about it, just impatient. Write fast woman! 🤗😂💕
