Rick Yancey won the Michael L. Printz Award for the stunning first entry in his Monstrumologist saga. In the series’ third entry, Will Henry is left behind as Dr. Warthrop and his eager new assistant Arkwright embark on a quest to find the “Holy Grail of Monstrumology.” But when Arkwright returns with news of the doctor’s demise, Will sets off on his own quest, to the Isle of Blood, to determine the truth.

“Yancey takes … gore and violence … to thrilling new levels in this sophisticated tale.” (School Library Journal on The Monstrumologist)
Series wise, within the top three. Book wise in my top ten.
Character Development. This is part three of the ongoing Monsturmologist Series. The Author brings so much character development to the story it is shocking. Most series get boring once the characters are set, but the Monstrumologist Characters keep developing, becoming more complex, darker, and larger.
Excellent dramatic reading and characterization, and wonderfully done accents, Steven Boyer ranks among the best like Simon Prebble and Stephen Frye.
Although very long, I could easily listen to it in one sitting.
Don't get this unless you have Book 1 - The Monstrumologist and Book 2 - Curse of the Wendigo.
