Product Description

From the author of I AM NOT A SERIAL KILLER...

John Wayne Cleaver has always known he has a dark side but he’s fought hard to oppress it and live a normal life – separating John from Mr Monster to survive. But after confronting and destroying the vicious killer that was terrorizing his town, his inner monster is getting stronger and harder to contain.

And now more bodies are being discovered...

With the police failing to catch Clayton County’s second serial killer John is going to have to use his secret knowledge of the first demon-killer to trap the second...but will he be able to avoid suspicion falling on him, and, in the face of extreme horrors, will he be able to restrain Mr Monster?

4.0 out of 5 stars 2nd book in a trilogy of terror 16 May 2012
By M. King
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The other books in this series are I am not a Serial Killer and I Don't want to kill you . They deal with our young heroes battle with his dark side whilst at the same time having to deal with a number of serial killers who target his home town.

At first I thought it was quite reminiscent of Dexter but, the nature of Johns opponents differentiates this as does his ongoing struggle with his nature

First two books get 4 stars for me with the third getting 5 as it rounds off the trilogy very nicely.

John Wayne Cleaver is your average teenager; he fantasizes about girls, has a turbulent relationship with his mother and is slowly deciding what sort of person he wants to be. Oh, and he's a sociopath with murderous tendencies!

'Mr Monster' carries on the trials and tribulations of everyone's favourite teenage sociopath where the previous book left off and let me tell you, the pace doesn't slow down for a second. Having just solved the unsettling mystery behind a string of murders in the previous book, John finds himself in a similarly twisted situation as a fresh batch of bodies start turning up. But John's finding it increasingly difficult to keep his alternate personality, the eponymous Mr Monster, locked up inside his psyche. With new opportunities to unleash his deepest, darkest desires presenting themselves at every corner, will John be able fight back and resist? I can only tell you to read on.

I devoured the first book in the series and was equally satisfied with Mr Monster, despite the rather jarring shift from tentative thriller to full-throttle horror. Without spoiling anything, the antagonist in this volume isn't sympathetic AT ALL and lends a far edgier atmosphere to the proceedings than in the previous installment. John himself is also becoming more and more troubled, which makes him a challenging character to root for in certain parts of the story, but that's partly what makes him so fascinating. I wholly recommend this book to anybody who enjoyed the first and can't wait to see what grisly happenings the third book has in store.

By GOTTON
Format:Paperback
Mr Monster by Dan Wells is the second book in the John Cleaver series and a big improvement on I am not a Serial Killer.

In this book we are back with teenage sociopath just months after the events of the first book and there is another killer in town. It quickly becomes apparent that this killer is connected to the killer in the first story and with this book Dan Wells has really opened up this series to be something much more than was promised in the first book.

I am not a Serial Killer's strengths were in how well the author had crafted John's character to create a truly disturbing portrayal of a sociopath who struggles with his homicidal tendencies. Sadly because so much effort had been put into getting that part of the book right, the supernatural element really didn't seem to fit with the overall story and the demon just didn't seem to be very well crafted or fleshed out.

The enemy in this book however is much more unique and well crafted with far more subtle and less stereotyped supernatural strengths and also a lot more of a back story that opens the supernatural element wide open. By adding more depth into the supernatural element of the book it didn't contrast so much with the already brilliant character of John Cleaver.

In this book both key elements were great and so it was a vast success in my eyes. I have to say that I also love the struggles the protagonist has with his normal life just as much as the main conflict that he is a part of. It is really fascinating reading about him trying to be a normal person and dealing with his very creepy and obsessive tendencies.

This book only lost a star because there is so much about it that is just uncomfortable.
