Synopsis from Goodreads: 
Set in an alternate matriarchal 1900’s Asia, in a richly imagined world of art deco-inflected steampunk, MONSTRESS tells the story of a teenage girl who is struggling to survive the trauma of war, and who shares a mysterious psychic link with a monster of tremendous power, a connection that will transform them both.

My Rating: ★★★★☆ (4.5)

My Review/thoughts:

A world divided into two parts. One is the human world, and the other the arcanic world (filled with monsters and ancients and gods). Awesome. I’m sold! (more…)
