"The Monster of Elendhaven" by Jennifer Giesbrecht

I’ve finished another novel recently. I enjoyed this book and this is good for any horror fan who wants a quick read around Halloween time. I can’t say what I really want to say here without ruining the ending. I’m just going to suggest you go read it and you can comment on this article when you’re done. I want to know what you think when you’ve made it to the end. For those of you who haven’t read this book, don’t read the comments for fear of spoilers.

Synopsis: The city of Elendhaven sulks on the edge of the ocean. Wracked by plague, abandoned by the South, stripped of industry and left to die. But not everything dies so easily. A thing without a name stalks the city, a thing shaped like a man, with a dark heart and long pale fingers yearning to wrap around throats. A monster who cannot die. His frail master sends him out on errands, twisting him with magic, crafting a plan too cruel to name, while the monster’s heart grows fonder and colder and more cunning.

These monsters of Elendhaven will have their revenge on everyone who wronged the city, even if they have to burn the world to do it.

  1. This monster or creature sounds similar to the Slander Man. Though it has some similarity towards other creatures too but overall feel that we can get from it like slender man. I’d love to check this book out.

    1. I didn’t think of it that way but it kind of does sound like that now that you mention it. Anyway, I wasn’t expecting the ending that was in the book but it was a good ending. I won’t spoil it for you in case you decide to read the book.
