Summary

Dear listener,

When we were children, we dreamed of being heroes. We wanted to slay dragons and defeat the monsters that scared us.

As we grew older, we were forced to try and find our monsters. We had been told they would be easy to spot. Monsters had too much teeth, too much fur, too much size.

These were lies. We stopped wanting to be heroes. We started to want to be more, to be too much. We wanted, needed, more than the world could give us. We wanted more than what we were told we should be. We wanted to become monsters.

Dear listener,

I want three things for you as you hear these stories. I hope you find a story that brings you joy. I hope you find a story that gives you some discomfort. Finally, I hope you find a story here that makes you too much, that makes you just a little bit monstrous.

May you be enthralled and entertained by my accounts of monsters...and may these stories help you wake up the monster inside.

Exceeded expectations

Each story to this book was enthralling in unique ways, none of the stories felt as if they were a carbon copy of each other which made it captivating.

Hire a Spanish-speaking narrator next time

Loved the stories in this collection, and for the most part I enjoyed the narration. But it really irks me that they hired a narrator who clearly does not speak Spanish to narrate stories with Spanish excerpts. The broken delivery really destroyed the atmosphere of the story, and it is disappointing that they did not hire someone who could recite Spanish as well as they recite English to narrate a collection of stories written by a Hispanic/Latin author that featured Spanish writing.
