Hello boys and ghouls,
Welcome to Monsterland, the scariest place on earth.
When I first heard of this book, I had some serious RL Stine vibes in my head. One Day at Horrorland, anyone? Which was exciting for me because I freaking love RL Stine and I was pumped that someone else was writing a story about a dangerous theme park filled with monsters… Seriously, that would be like a dream date.
This concept has been done with Jurassic Park or Westworld, but it hasn’t really been done in YA before, with vampires and werewolves. I was super excited about this book and what would happen…
Oh yeah, there’s a sweet giveaway at the end so make sure you read down all the way!
Here’s a little about the book.
When world markets are decimated by a crippling plague, philanthropist, and billionaire businessman, Vincent Konrad decides to place monsters in a theme park setting to promote education and tolerance. Copper Valley is chosen as the primary site for the park in the United States.
Wyatt Baldwin, a high school senior is dying to go to the opening and when he lands special passes to the park, he and his friends are expecting the experience of a lifetime.
After all, in a theme park where real zombies, werewolves, and vampires are the main attractions, what could possibly go wrong?
While I was looking around about this book I noticed some pretty fantastic feeback on it. Check the out. But maybe don’t just take their word for it. Get yourself a copy!
