Publisher Comments:

I killed a demon. I dont know if it was really, technically a demon, but I do know that he was some kind of monster, with fangs and claws and the whole bit, and he killed a lot of people. So I killed him. I think it was the right thing to do. At least the killing stopped.

Well, it stopped for a while.

In I Am Not a Serial Killer, John Wayne Cleaver saved his town from a murderer even more appalling than the serial killers he obsessively studies.

But it turns out even demons have friends, and the disappearance of one has brought another to Clayton County. Soon there are new victims for John to work on at the mortuary and a new mystery to solve. But John has tasted death, and the dark nature he used as a weapon---the terrifying persona he calls “Mr. Monster”---might now be using him.

No one in Clayton is safe unless John can vanquish two nightmarish adversaries: the unknown demon he must hunt and the inner demon he can never escape.

In this sequel to his brilliant debut, Dan Wells ups the ante with a thriller that is just as gripping and even more intense. He apologizes in advance for the nightmares.

Erin Clarkson, November 2, 2010 (view all comments by Erin Clarkson)
Mr. Monster, the sequel to I Am Not a Serial Killer by Dan Wells, was scarily addicting. It’s a story about a sixteen-year-old sociopath, at war with himself over giving into his darker urges or doing right and acting normal. And while this sounds creepy and weird, the mystery of the story and the development of John’s character make for a fascinating read. Also, it’s impossible to put down.

Continuing a few months after I Am Not a Serial Killer, Mr. Monster delves even deeper into John’s sociopathic tendencies. He let out the monster inside him to battle the demon-serial killer in the first book, and now that monster doesn’t want to go back into his cage. The book is both a journey through the mystery, and also a roller coaster ride on John’s emotions and actions. Will he give in? Will Mr. Monster take control, leaving John in the back seat?

With so many characters’ destinies riding on John’s actions, particularly the women in his life, this book was frightening at times. You’re terrified of John and what he might do, and at the same time inevitably drawn to him, wanting him to succeed and do the right thing. You almost enter a love-hate relationship with the two sides of his personality. While John is human and somewhat normal, Mr. Monster also has attractive, while definitely creepy, qualities. And you can’t completely hate the monster inside him, because you know it will be crucial in saving John’s life, and those around him.
