Weaving allusions to Frankenstein, magic, and fairy tales, MONSTROUS is a hypnotic listen. Narrator Brittany Pressley excels at balancing the protagonist’s innocence and questioning as she slowly uncovers her true purpose and her past. The city of Bryre is under the curse of a dark wizard who makes girls take ill and disappear. Kymera has been brought back to life and given wings, cat eyes, claws, and a tail in order to help save the girls and stop the wizard. Pressley's Kymera has just the right amount of emotion to tug at the heartstrings. The supporting characters are well voiced, and Pressley subtly changes her portrayal of each one as true identities and motives are uncovered. With excellent pacing, Pressley keeps listeners engaged all the way to the breathtaking climax. S.B.T. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2015]
