As a fan of R.L. Naquin's Monster Haven series when I found out that the Transmonstrified short story collection contained 2 never before seen stories set in that world I knew I had to buy it. It actually contains 5 Monster Haven stories (3 of which were published separately so I'd already read them) but I didn't realise how many other stories would be included. In total the collection contains 22 stories and poems 2 set in the world of the author's new Mount Olympus series and 15 that are compl ...more

My main reason for getting this was to have a paperback version of the excellent Monster Haven short stories that I've read and to get the unreleased ones as well. It was well worth it for that! I'm not going to fully review the Monster Haven ones that I've read as I reviewed them on Goodreads already. I haven't reviewed the poetry as I hate poetry, or a couple of the stories that didn't interest me ie gangsters.

I picked up this book just so I could finally say I’d finished the entire Monster Haven series.

I had already read a few of these stories and have some experience in the Unamused Muse world, too, but these were still fun, quick stories to read. The two new stories in the Monster Haven world were about Kam and Riley. The Kam story was adorable and, having read one of the spin-off books, I wish her own series had the same light heartedness to it. She solves a sort of mystery and does her job all i

I'm a sucker for these kinds of stories. Although the description hardly touches the main storyline it gives you that immediate feeling of "this is going to be fun!". The hidden world of monsters is in trouble and they need help. This light hearted book series, which is a complete and finished series, has a way of getting to you. The monsters become humane and at some point tears are involved. Anyone with a weakness for the underdogs should read this. ...more

snippets of fun! I enjoyed getting extra details on monster haven, but I really enjoyed getting a glimpse into the imagination of the author. The off the wall imagination in both lighter and darker stories: new worlds and refreshing and scary tales, too. I'm floored! ...more
