'An absolute page-turner. Vanessa Len blurs the age-old lines between good or evil, hero or monster, in the most captivating way.' - Chloe Gong

Don't forget the rule. No one can know what you are. What we are. You must never tell anyone about monsters.

Only a monster would kill a hero. Right?

Joan Chang-Hunt has just learned the truth: her family are monsters, with terrifying, hidden powers.

And there is a legendary monster slayer, who will do anything to destroy her family. To save herself and her family, Joan will have to do what she fears most: embrace her own monstrousness. Because in this story...she is not the hero.

Dive deep into the world of Only a Monster: hidden worlds dwell in the shadows, beautiful monsters with untold powers walk among humans, and secrets are the most powerful weapon of all. And the line between monster and hero is razor thin.

'The writing and the premise are delightful, as are the monsters.' - Holly Black

'Vanessa Len's world of monsters and heroes is like nothing I've ever read, utterly fresh and unique. It's a page-turning YA adventure with breathtaking twists and a rich, dangerous setting. I loved the girl antihero at its centre, and the depth of the themes that it tackles. But most of all I love the way it turns the genre on its head. Put down everything and read it!' - CS Pacat
