The journals of a dying man are recovered, revealing a horror that has to be fiction...doesn't it? Will Henry's journal from age 12 in the late 1800s discuss his apprenticeship to the infamous monstrumologist and the gruesome hunting of Anthropophagi, fierce, seven-feet tall creatures with no head and a mouth lined with 3,000 teeth in the middle of their chest that shred and eat humans for sport and sustenance. One of the goriest books I've read, filled with creepy characters, but also raises an interesting moral question--are not men as much monster as the monsters they hunt? Ends with a teaser, although not a cliffhanger--turns out there is a sequel coming out this year.
