Here is another great review! This one from School Library Journal:
Boy is the teenage son of Frankenstein’s Monster and the Bride. Yes, his name is just that, Boy. He has spent his entire life living in hiding with other monsters, including vampires, goblins, trolls, dryads, mermaids, and more. In this sequel to Man Made Boy (Viking, 2013), Boy has overcome his fear of humans and ventures to Switzerland to visit the descendants of Dr. Frankenstein. During his visit, Boy becomes embroiled in a conflict that threatens all of humankind. A mysterious doctor attempts to recruit Boy and his fellow monsters to join an army that will overthrow the humans. The protagonist quickly learns that this doctor has been creating disturbing monsters in a lab and that he is willing destroy anything that gets in the way of total monster domination. This work crisscrosses many different genres: fantasy, science fiction, horror, and humor. The plot is fast paced and filled with action, keeping readers engaged. At times, it can be difficult to keep track of all the various characters and their locations, especially for those unfamiliar with the previous volume. However, it can still be enjoyed as a stand-alone title. This book is best suited for older teens due to some mild adult content and some frightening scenes. VERDICT Fans of science fiction and humor will enjoy this clever, monster-filled read.
