The Monsters In Your Neighborhood (Monstrosity, #2)

The Monsters In Your Neighborhood (Monstrosity, #2) - Jesse Petersen My rating: 3.5 of 5 starsA copy of The Monsters In Your Neighborhood was provided to me by Pocket Star/Edelweiss for review purposes.The Monsters in Your Neighbor picks up right where Club Monstrosity left off with the monsters set to anticipate an attack from the Van Helsings after killing of one of their own. But things have been silent, eerily silent, and they haven't heard a peep from the Van Helsing's until each monster finally receives the message they've been waiting for: "War."Club Monstrosity possessed a highly entertaining and original idea that I was immediately keen to. A group of monsters that attend AA-type meetings together to discuss their concerns with functioning in a society that isn't aware of their existence? I love it. And I loved this installment even more than the first. The mystery has a lot of depth and twists and turns that managed to be quite surprising. New characters have also been added to the gang: we've got Patrick, a Cthulhu relegated to living in the sewers because of the impossibility of masking his appearance and Igor, Natalie's fathers old assistant who has a new Southern accent and after some modern-day plastic surgery has had his old hump removed. I was surprised to see how incorporated into the story both were, but they were entertaining additions. The ending left you anticipating more installments and I'm definitely on board for more Monster-drama, and really hoping more interesting Monsters get added to the gang! This is a humorous and entertaining mystery series with plenty of paranormal and plenty of fun classic horror movie references.
