Meet Monster. Meet Judy. Two humans who don't like each other much, but together must fight dragons, fire-breathing felines, trolls, Inuit walrus dogs, and a crazy cat lady - for the future of the universe. Monster runs a pest control agency. He's overworked and has domestic troubles - like having the girlfriend from hell. Judy works the night shift at the local Food Plus Mart. Not the most glamorous life, but Judy is happy. No one bothers her and if she has to spell things out for the night-manager every now and again, so be it. But when Judy finds a Yeti in the freezer aisle eating all the Rocky Road, her life collides with Monster's in a rather alarming fashion. Because Monster doesn't catch raccoons; he catches the things that go bump in the night. Things like ogres, trolls, and dragons. Oh, and his girlfriend from Hell? She actually is from Hell.… (mais)

This was a fun listen, the narrator was excellent, the story pace was quick, and the writing made me laugh. It was exactly what I needed after two truly creepy and somewhat sad reads. ( )

Monster was a very fun and unique novel, but it did confuse me at times. Sometimes multiple things would happen at once and it would make it very confusing to keep track of. When I did understand it it was super fun and entertaining. I like how at some serious times in the book the narrator would make a joke and there was a lot of humor in the book which was a great touch. Every character had their own personality and opinions, I liked the characters that were very sarcastic the most. Lotus had to be my favorite character even though she was the villain in the book, she had such an “I’m the boss of everything” attitude which was really funny and she had an interesting background. I enjoyed the end of the book the best because I liked to see what was happening after the whole battle over the stone, Monster did not like going back to his job so it was funny when he said “I wish I was a cat” because that was the whole thing he was trying to stop. Overall the book wasn’t perfect but it was very creative, funny, and entertaining. ( )

Synopsis: Monster, who works for Cryptobiological Containment and Rescue Services as a freelance agent. With his sidekick Chester, a sixth-dimensional entity that manifests as various shapes of folded paper, he handles the more exotic problems for Animal Control. As a magical being, he wakes every morning as a different color and magical ability, a curse he cannot control. He first encounters Judy in the when she places a call for help at work. They meet again when trolls infest her apartment. As an incognizant, someone whose mind can't acknowledge magic, Judy soon forgets the bizarre events, but Monster suspects she's somehow involved with the recent number of dangerous cryptobiological happenings. They spend time together, with Judy even performing a ride-along as Monster goes about his work. Apparently, Judy has had several similar magical encounters throughout her life, but she can't recall any of them. But it's absolutely vital for Judy to remember that magic exists, because she's the key to defeating an ancient, powerful and extraordinarily devious being, disguised as the crazy neighborhood cat lady. When Lotus, keeper of a stone mysteriously linked to Judy, spirits Judy away, Monster attempts to come to her rescue, only to discover that he's in way over his head. As an ancient cosmic parasite, Lotus has used the stone to extend her life for millennia, but needs a key to unlock it's all-powerful magic during the coming cosmic alignment. Judy is the being required and nothing will stand in Lotus's way as she directs the cryptobiological events to drive Judy to her grasp. While Judy struggles with her destiny and against the growing influence of Lotus as the alignment grows closer, Monster discovers his own magic. He destroys his evil girlfriend, sending her back to the underworld and discovers the ability to shift between colors and magical abilities to fight the coming Armageddon. Both have been drawn together as two entities with a choice, either go with the cosmic flow that has pushed them around for most of their lives, or stand up and fight for something much larger than themselves. In the end, both Monster and Judy triumph against Lotus's parasitic evil and release the stone's power back into the universe. While magic is now a larger part of the universe, both Judy and Monster now have the freedom to each make a fresh start.
Review: The pace of this book was a slow, but I did find the cat lady entertaining. I'd like to turn people into pets on occasion. ( )
