One October morning, Laina gets the news that her brother has been shot and killed by Boston cops. But what looks like a case of police brutality soon reveals something much stranger. Monsters are real. And they want everyone to know it.

As creatures from myth and legend come out of the shadows, seeking safety through visibility, their emergence sets off a chain of seemingly unrelated events. Members of a local werewolf pack are threatened into silence. A professor follows a missing friend's trail of bread crumbs to a mysterious secret society. And a young boy with unique abilities seeks refuge in a pro-monster organization with secrets of its own. Meanwhile, more people start disappearing, suicides and hate crimes increase, and protests erupt globally, both for and against the monsters.

At the center is a mystery no one thinks to ask: Why now? What has frightened the monsters out of the dark?

I haven't said this for a while. This is a book I read and enjoyed and don't understand at all. Is that a good thing? Let me read the next installment and I'll let you know. ( )

I really liked this literary urban fantasy and can't wait for the next book. The smart writing style reminded me of Rumaan Alam's [b:Leave the World Behind|50358031|Leave the World Behind|Rumaan Alam|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1583735183l/50358031._SY75_.jpg|75306723] but with more action and resolution.

I like these kind of stories that mix the supernatural with our ordinary world.
I enjoyed reading this book. ( )

a fantastic twist on monster lore, Cadwell has incredible voice and knows how to tell a compelling story. I look forward to the next installment in this series. ( )

An urban fantasy in which monsters such as shapeshifters and magic users are revealed to be living among us via viral video, set mainly around Boston, Massachusetts, but also in St. Thomas and the prologue near where I live (hello, Cameron Village). What I liked: complex, multilayered plot involving conspiracies, secret organizations, and the multiverse; relatable and distinct characters, especially a trans character who did not feel like a checked box; makes points about oppression and human rights without being didactic or heavy-handed. This is *not* the X-Men. What I didn't like: characters' emotions are sometimes unnecessarily overexplained; I knew this was the first part of a series going in, but I hoped it would still stand alone--nope, it is clearly a part one; the multiverse aspect particularly is pretty vague.

Note: Some of the reviews call this a series of vignettes, but I don't see that. It's a novel. It progresses linearly and builds on itself. You couldn't read any of the chapters as standalone stories. ( )
