Review Wrap Up: Monster Night by Drewry and Azeltine

Young Adult Fantasy
Date Published: November 2012

When a drug surfaces in town that turns teens into the mythological creature of the chupacabra, David
Copperfield Finkleman is called in to help. Why? Because David possesses a rare gift. He is a true blue, magic out of the fingertips, potions and spells, wizard. Well, that and because his grandfather is the lead investigator on the case and the drug is circulating in David's own high school. David is thrust into a world of danger and monsters he never knew existed, all the while living his normal daily life. He learns that he will have to save the very bullies who torment him in school and the chemistry teacher who wants nothing more than to flunk him. Adding to his problems, he deals with girl troubles, a boss who doesn't appreciate his sarcasm, and saving an agent's life before it's too pressure!


THis is a fun and light hearted young adult novel. The main character doesn't magically wake up as a werewolf, or learn he has magic. He is already well aware of his powers and embarks on a journey of epic proportions. 

David is a wonderful lead character with plenty CHARISMA to keep the reader invested in him throughtout.

This Book has averaged a 4.5* Rating from reviewers during this tour.
It is currently at 4.0*'s on Amazon.
The book is only $2.99! 

FROM Andi's YA Books:

This book is definitely different from other paranormal, supernatural, fantasy YA out there. One thing that stood out is that David is already fully aware that he has powers. He has grown up in a magical family and is just learning more about how to use them as a part of the agency while he tries to save his high school and town from the chupacabras and drugs.

Another thing that stands out is the mix of different creatures from all around the world, such as the chupacabra, that don't often find their way into this genre of books right now. 

David is a typical sarcastic teenage boy, whose mouth can easily get him into trouble. Gramps is one of those fun characters who likes to egg on his grandson and embraces him for who he is. He also helps to get him both in and out of trouble throughout the story. It is a quick and fun read that even some middle grade kids will enjoy.
