by Patrick Ness; inspired by an idea from Siobhan Dowd
Reviewed by Shauna:
Completing a story of love and loss once begun by Dowd, Ness tells the tale of a monster that shows up after midnight. As they do. But the monster isn’t what the main protagonist Conor has been expecting. Instead, this monster is something different, something ancient, something wild... And it wants the most dangerous thing of all from Conor. It wants the truth.
