Publisher's Summary

I've always known I was a monster.

My mother abandoned me when I was 10 years old because I have a freakish mutant disease that makes me incapable of feeling pain. I bounced from one foster family to another because too many people like to test my medical condition in a game of "try to make Ollie scream". At 16, I killed a man for taking that game too far.

Two years later, I'm still on the run in Kodiak, Alaska. Here, I'm the most dangerous person around, until I come face to face with a creature that should only exist in folklore. The monster is an aswang, and I, with my medical anomaly, am uniquely qualified to hunt the beast that haunts the night. At least, that's what the two scarred, mostly crazy 'swang hunters tell me when they kidnap me and take me to Fear University, a school where young students learn to hunt and kill aswangs.

For once in my life, I belong. I'm needed. I make a home for myself inside the university masquerading as an old Alaskan prison. But when certain truths come to light and even more lies are exposed, I fear that I, Ollie Andrews, am the worst kind of monster of all. And, maybe, they should be hunting me.

Action everywhere

Liked this book heard in Audible. The descriptions of the characters was really precise. Worth the read. A bit scary too.

Excellent

This book is more than just okay, and the heroin is quite interesting too. she is not your cookie cutter bad girl. As story goes on her character gets fleshed out well, though a few times I did want to reach in the book and smack some sense into her to let go of some of that baggage but I guess it is a driving mechanism for the book that keeps things interesting. It looks like it's shaping up for a very exciting sequel that... I'm about to buy right now😆
