Overview

As one of Frankenstein’s Creatures, Natalie Gray knows that unique parts sometimes make up a great whole. Still, leading a diverse support group for monsters—now including Cthulhu!—isn’t an easy task. Especially not since the internet arrived.

New York City embraces the different and the bizarre. Still, even for such a fun-loving city, the supernatural and monstrous might be a bit too much. It’s been six months since the members of “Club Monstrosity” overcame the most recent spate of anti-monster violence and they’ve reestablished their routine of meeting in a church basement once a week to (ugh!) talk about their feelings. Still, they also know a war against them is brewing.

Natalie and Alec (the werewolf) have begun dating, and the mummies Kai and Rehu are tighter than a bug in a…well, bandage. But when modern means (YouTube, Twitter, bits and bytes) are used to chilp away at the solidarity of these ancient monsters, it’s up to Natalie to save the day. #MonstersInNewYork may be trending on Twitter, but this girl’s trending toward saving the day…somehow.

Jesse Petersen grew up a geek in love with Star Wars, video games (King’s Quest, anyone?), books of all kinds, and even the occasional RPG. Eventually she grew up, at least in body, but she still loves anything with whimsy, and her books reflect that. Whether it’s funny zombies or monsters in group therapy, you’ll find books that mix giggles with gore. You can find Jesse at her website JessePetersen.net, her Twitter @jessepet and on Facebook, where she talks about Weird Al, cats, and even her books.

    this serie is worth being devoured

    Personally in "CLUB Monstrosity", I really liked the concept of the greatest monsters of literature who find themselves in the middle of New York in a therapy group. 
    The idea was original. The action full of twists and conducted as an investigation with amusing repartees.

    The first volume ended, as the reader left the creatures of our childhood to manage a declaration of war with the descendants of Van Helsing. 
    There, in the sequel of the adventures of the daughter of Frankenstein and her werewolf  of boyfriend and their therapy group, the situation worsen. 
    Van Helsing and his progeny rely on Mr. Hyde's desires for revenge after losing Dr. Jekyll.

    A new race against time ensues between creatures and hunters in the streets of New York, with new very endearing characters. Wanting to lend a hand to their friends, they end up worsening the situation.

    Always well written, with a nice part left for feelings, this serie is worth being devoured. Under the humor and the supernatural, the author brings the concepts of tolerance, suffering face of differences. It is well done. No downtime, this serie is fresh and exciting.

    War has been declared, Van Helsing has finally made a decision,

    War has been declared, Van Helsing has finally made a decision, and the monsters don't know everything that is going on. There is a mystery in the occurrences and they don't know all the players. Will it cost them their friendships, their hearts, and their lives or can they change the situation and find the upper hand of the situation. This is the sequel to the great book Club Monstrosity, and like the previous book the reader finds themselves looking at reality in a different way. A great resource for the middle schools students, and teaching cooperation and acceptance of the individual

    Wow! What a quirky, fun take on the monsters living among the city throng of New York City.

    You might not know this but the “monsters” of your nightmares have taken residence right next door. They meet at the the local church hall to discuss relevant issues/feelings calling themselves “Club Monstrosity”. They even have relationship problems. They are trying to live the American dream until an unknown “Frankenstein” type monster starts to terrorize and attack the local humans. Can they solve the mystery behind the unknown monster before they are pushed into a life of hiding to avoid being killed off? Will they find true love? You'll have to check out The Monster In Your Neighborhood.

    I was completely amazed by this story. Jesse Petersen completely revamps the “monster” persona by dropping them in everyday life circumstances and adding a mystery with a twist. Wonderfully constructed story for a entertaining, utterly original and flat out fun read. Pick up The Monsters In Your Neighborhood leave your troubles and reality behind and just enjoy this charming, humorist story.

    This ARC copy of The Monsters In Your Neighborhood was given to me by Simon & Schuster - Pocket Star in exchange for a honest review. This book is set for publication July 29, 2013.
