Will Henry's journals begin with his first adventure as Dr. Pellinore Warthrop's assistant. But Dr. Warthrop isn't an ordinary doctor—he’s a monstrumologist, a scientist who studies monsters. The story takes place in late-nineteenth-century New England but isn't recorded until years later in Will's journals. Accordingly, Steve Boyer conveys the wisdom of a much older man in his delivery, deftly navigating the dense prose of a bygone era. Although each of the supporting characters has a unique voice—from the gravelly-voiced sea captain to the arrogant English surgeon—the voicings of the two main characters, Will and Dr. Warthrop, run together, making it difficult to determine which of them is speaking. Nevertheless, young horror fans will eagerly await the next installment in this new series. E.N. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2010]
