A grisly murder. A detective warlock with a dangerous past. A girl out of her depth. Can they solve the case? Sage is an ordinary girl and a werewolf, moving between worlds, desperate to make sense of her life. When her supernatural friend, Lucy, is found murdered in the human domain, Sage is determined to be part of the investigation headed up by the attractive but arrogant warlock, Oren Rinallis. Sage is neither magical nor immortal, but she knows right from wrong - and can scent a killer like no other . . .

The first in a stunning YA crime romantasy series - each title standalone - from an outstanding new YA talent Think slow-burn enemies-to-lovers romance, twisty crime, and a supernatural detective gang in a unique urban fantasy setting under the city of Manchester For fans of Cassandra Clare, with a touch of Rivers of London.

'Fans of Big Bad Me and Mina and the Undead will devour this! Pulse-pounding, paranormal fun.' KAT ELLIS, AUTHOR OF HARROW LAKE '...the supernatural murder mystery I didn't know I needed.' ANEESA MARUFU, AUTHOR OF THE BALLOON THIEF.  'I adored this book! It was the perfect blend of a twisty mystery, found family and inventive world building. Think Legends and Lattes with murder.' AMY MCCAW, AUTHOR OF MINA AND THE UNDEAD.



All the Hidden Monsters is a perfect, twisty, supernatural thriller that you simply won't be able to put down. Oren works for the Arcanum, a warlock institution that upholds law and order in the supernatural world. Werewolf Sage is an aspiring detective, perpetually rejected by the dictatorial leader Roderick. However, in an unlikely about-face, Roderick decides to giver her a chance, on a strictly trial basis; ostensibly to antagonise Oren, but also to prove his point once and for all.

Werewolves are being slaughtered and the uneven alliance between Oren and Sage is soon put to the test. In a world where the human Upside and supernatural Downside exist in an uneasy equilibrium, can the mismatched duo solve the case before any more lives are lost?

All the Hidden Monsters reads like a thrilling hybrid of Twilight and Artemis Fowl. The enemies-to-lovers dynamic is a familiar one, but there is a real spark to this and an all-round sassiness and wit in tone and character. The world building is wonderful - it's a regular cast of young adults, sharing meals and attending parties and pub quizzes, but the bar staff are all fauns - and Sage's best friend is a poltergeist. It's that kind of world.

This book might be blood-soaked but it is a huge amount of fun and completely compulsive reading. I think most readers (like me!) will be eagerly anticipating the sequel.
