Only a Monster / Vanessa Len

A standout YA contemporary fantasy, where hidden worlds dwell in the shadows, beautiful monsters with untold powers walk among humans, & secrets are the most powerful weapon of all!

Don’t forget the rule. No one can know what you are. What we are. You must never tell anyone about monsters.

Joan has just learned the truth: Her family are monsters, with terrifying, hidden powers.

And the cute boy at work isn’t just a boy: He’s a legendary monster slayer, who will do anything to destroy her family.

To save herself and her family, Joan will have to do what she fears most: Embrace her own monstrousness. Because in this story…she is not the hero. First in a planned trilogy!
