It’s time to finally conclude the Chaos Walking series with book 3, Monsters of Men. So far the second book – The Ask and the Answer – has been my favourite book in this brilliant YA dystopian fantasy. I’m just hoping that Monsters of Men will be a strong finish to what’s already been one of my favourite book series.
The first book – The Knife of Never Letting Go – was a fun and fast paced adventure. The Ask and the Answer slowed the pace down a little and turned the story into a psychological war between Mayor Prentiss and our protagonists Todd and Viola. It will be interesting to see how it all wraps up as the Spackle invasion kicks off.

As the battles commence, how can they hope to stop the fighting? How can there ever be peace when they’re so hopelessly outnumbered? And if war makes monsters of men, what terrible choices await? But then a third voice breaks into the battle, one bent on revenge…The electrifying finale to the award-winning Chaos Walking trilogy, Monsters of Men is a heart-stopping novel about power, survival and the devastating realities of war. This new edition contains a brand new and previously unpublished short story, Snowscape.
