Best Fictional Monsters and the Brilliant Books They Live In Shepherd.com asked me to write a list of book recommendations for them. It was limited to only five in one category. Given the range I both read and write over, that was a challenge. Despite the challenge I gave them five of my favourite Fictional monsters. If you like a good monster story, it’s worth taking a look.

The review reads:
Perfect October read……or any time, actually! Muse is a very fast paced, creepy story filled with some unique characters. Iris Carden gives you a good reminder of why if something seems too good to be true, you should RUN!
