From New York Times best-selling author Amy Tintera, a high-stakes sci-fi adventure about a teen girl who will do anything to escape her troubled home—even if that means joining a dangerous monster-fighting squad. Perfect for fans of Warcross and Renegades.
Seventeen-year-old Clara is ready to fight back. Fight back against her abusive father, fight back against the only life she’s ever known, and most of all, fight back against scrabs, the earth-dwelling monsters that are currently ravaging the world. So when an opportunity arises for Clara to join an international monster-fighting squad, she jumps at the chance.
When Clara starts training with her teammates, however, she realizes what fighting monsters really means: sore muscles, exhaustion, and worst of all, death. Scrabs are unpredictable, violent, and terrifying. But as Clara gains confidence in her battle skills, she starts to realize scrabs might not be the biggest evil. The true monsters are the ones you least expect.
About the Author
Amy Tintera is the New York Times bestselling author of the Reboot and Ruined series. She earned degrees in journalism and film and worked in Hollywood before becoming an author. She lives in Austin, Texas, where she can usually be found staring into space, dreaming up ways to make her characters run for their lives.
"What appears to be a dystopian science-fiction adventure turns out fundamentally to be about a young woman’s emotional path to transcendence over the cycle of abuse. Tintera gracefully balances heart-pounding action with compelling connections between Clara and her teammates, all told through snappy dialogue and prose.... A thrilling and worthy #MeToo story with frightening monsters of all kinds."—Kirkus
"[C]haracter and relationship development within the team takes center stage....Clara is a strong character, and many readers will follow her into the concluding volume." —Booklist
"Amy Tintera is one of my favorite authors, and this is her best book yet. From its badass heroine to its heart-stopping action, from its totally immersive world to the deeply-felt personal story at the heart of this book, All These Monsters is something fresh and new, and it kept me up late into the night." —Amie Kaufman, New York Times bestselling author of Illuminae and Aurora Rising
“All These Monsters has everything you want in a young adult novel—heart-stopping action, big personalities, scary monsters—but Amy Tintera has also created an unforgettable heroine in Clara. Not only is Clara a badass Latina, but readers will root for her as she contends with a family secret that clouds her every decision. Couldn't put it down!” —Lilliam Rivera, author of Dealing in Dreams and The Education of Margot Sanchez.
"A globe-trotting dystopian novel about thrill seeking teens hunting down monsters plaguing Europe. Fun and action-packed, with characters I really rooted for." —Lauren James, author of The Loneliest Girl in the Universe
