“My fellow monsters,” said Moreau. “No longer will we hide in the shadows, cringing, cowardly, hiding our true potential. You see, the humans do not view us as people. We must force them to expand their view of personhood to include us. By any means necessary.”

A year ago, Boy, the son of Frankenstein’s monster, had never even met a human. Now he’s living with his human “family,” the descendants of Dr. Frankenstein, in Switzerland. That is, until the maniacal genius Dr. Moreau, long-ago banished to a remote island for his crimes against humanity, asks for Boy's help.

Moreau wants Boy to join his army of animal/human hybrid creatures and help him overthrow human society. Boy will do anything to save this broken, wondrous world from the war that threatens to split it in two. But how much will he have to give up? And is the world worth saving?

Reviews

Praise for This Broken Wondrous World

"Skovron’s frenetic pace and ragtag band of creatures will appeal to readers who crave nonstop action." — Booklist

Praise for Man Made Boy

“Love monsters? If you do, Jon Skovron’s Man Made Boy is for you. If you don’t, why not?”— Kelly Link, award-winning author of Magic for Beginners and Pretty Monsters
 
“Skovron weaves all things creepy and strange into a tale that is heartwarming, hilarious, and full of memorable characters.”— John Corey Whaley, winner of the Michael L. Printz Award for Where Things Come Back
 
“Skovron has mastered the beauty, tragedy, and hilarity of the fine line between monsters and men. Read this book and marvel at his creation.”— Andrea Cremer, bestselling author of the Nightshade series
 
“If Man Made Boy hasn’t been optioned for a film or at least a CW series by the end of the year, we can be assured that Hollywood has actually forgotten how to read. Because Boy, for all his used parts, is an original.”—i09.com
