Will Henry and Dr. Warthrop have encountered many horrors together—but can Will endure a monstrumological terror without his mentor?

Will Henry has been through more that seems possible for a boy of fourteen. He’s been on the brink of death on more than one occasion, he has gazed into hell—and hell has stared back at him, and known his face. But through it all, Dr. Warthrop has been at his side.

When Dr. Warthrop fears that Will’s loyalties may be shifting, he turns on Will with a fury, determined to reclaim his young apprentice’s devotion. And so Will must face one of the most horrific creatures of his monstrumology career—and he must face it alone.

Over the course of one day, Will’s life—and Pellinor Warthrop’s destiny—will lie in balance. In the terrifying depths of the Monstrumarium, they will face a monster more terrible than any they could have imagined—and their fates will be decided.

Published by Simon & Schuster September 10, 2013 

Summary from Goodreads.

This is the final book in Rick Yancey's (author of The 5th Wave) beautiful horror series. If you have not read these books yet, now is the perfect time to change that. Start with The Monstrumologist. 

Looking for a spooky read?
Do you like excellent writing?
Do you like horror?
Can you stomach some gore? The effluvia flows in these novels.
Do you enjoy complex, morally ambiguous, flawed characters?
Have you enjoyed novels set in the late Victorian period?
Did you like BBC's Sherlock? The main relationship of the novel is in some ways analogous  to the Sherlock/John of that series in particular, only even more co-dependent.
Would you be amused by cameos made by historical figures?

If you answered yes to any of the following questions, this series may be for you.
