Monsters of Men – Patrick Ness

Posted by Laura on October 12, 2010

Monsters of Men is the final book in Patrick Ness’s Chaos Walking trilogy.  I think of this as one of those series that runs at a gallop because the action of all the books takes place in a matter of months.  I highly recommend this series to people who like reading action stories that abound with tough decisions.  While it doesn’t play a big part in the storyline, there are some same sex relationships in the trilogy.  As with any series, please start with book one.  And, you many not want to read any more of this post…

At the end of the second book, Todd and Viola captured Mayor Prentiss – or President Prentiss, depending on who is talking.  Now, in Monsters of Men, Todd is guarding the Mayor while Viola is racing to beat Mistress Coyle to the scout ship.  Nothing good would come of the incoming settlers hearing Mistress Coyle’s view of events.

We have two armies clamoring to be the first to tell their story to the new settlers, but they weren’t planning on the third army.  The Spackle, who call themselves the Land, were the original people of the planet and the humans thought that all had been killed except for those they enslaved, and maybe a few stragglers in the countryside.  But, the humans were wrong.  There are thousands of the Land.  Millions of the Land.  And they have new weapons.
