Rick Yancey is for writing such a conclusion for this series I don t think I ve ever read a book that has bended my mind the way this series, and especially this book, has Only a mastermind like Yancey is capable of haunting me with the shadow of a book series forthan a year.After this reread, some things finally snapped into focus I was finally able to see what Yancey might have been meaning to tell his readers with writing these books I think I have experienced some of it, actually In fact, I am almost sure we have all gone through that Now, turn around and face it Read the books and you will probably understand what I mean.I will end this ramble here, but not without pointing the obvious The Monstrumologist series is the best thing I ve read in my life It played with my mind, twisted it, burnt it and rebuilt it The best decision I ve made in my life after choosing Chemistry as my career is having picked these books You may think I am exaggerating when I say that, but if you give it a thought, you will see there is really no sense in doing that After all, lying is the worst kind of buffoonery.So now, why don t you snap to and read this series Reviews for the previous books in the series The Monstrumologist The Curse of the Wendigo The Isle of BloodReview originally posted here on February 2015, written somewhere between August and September 2014.Once upon a time, there was a little boy who lost his parents in a fire The boy had no one else in his life after this tragedy Luckily or unfortunately , the boy s dad was assistant to a great man called Pellinore Warthrop This Warthrop better known as the doctor , or the monstrumologist decided that it was a good idea to take the orphan boy as his new assistant as a tribute to his former and now dead assistant, without knowing that the boy was doomed the moment Warthrop adopted him.After many years of monster hunting whether it be man eating creatures, or wicked people , the boy was not any innocent His soul had blackened, and the monsters he and the doctor hunted had gotten inside his skin and had turned to be part of him Now, he s an old man whose dark past is such a great burden to him that he cannot resist it for any longer Thus, he wrote some journals in which he explained his life from the moment he was cursed until the moment he became the man with the past too dark to bear.Some people say this book was a disappointment, but I don t think so They say it maybe because the end didn t please them, but for me, it was the best fitting finale What can you expect from a book about monsters written by a man that was exposed to them since his childhood Would you really think he would be sane or at least not perturbed Can you expect a happily ever after at the end In my opinion, the ending is just as it should have been It is certainly the most probable thing to happen if the things narrated had actually taken place at some time.The writing is just as marvelous as in the previous books, if not better It is dark, poetic, powerful and beautiful I could almost say that the color black is not even dark enough to describe how somber the writing and the book in general is Oh, and did I mention that it is also filled with a lot of philosophy Well, if I hadn t, now I have.There were many frightening scenes, although they are not like the ones in the previous books, that is, they re not necessarily gory Don t expect this book to be like the preceding installments, because it is not Rick Yancey said in the acknowledgements The Monstrumologist was conceived as one thing and evolved into something quite different Man eating monsters running amok is a simple enough concept, the impenetrable dark in us, not so much And he s not fooling you The Monstrumologist was originally about Will and Warthrop s adventures defeating monsters, nonetheless, with each book that passed, the way the series lead started to turn to another path, a darker one, that resembledan exploration on humanity It occurred to me, that aberrance is a wholly human construct There were no such things as monsters outside the human mind We are vain and arrogant, evolution s highest achievement and most dismal failure, prisoners of our self awareness and the illusion that we stand in the center, that there is us and then there is everything else but us But we do not stand apart from or above or in the middle of anything There is nothing apart, nothing above, and the middle is everywhere and nowhere We are nobeautiful and essential or magnificent than an earthworm In fact you could say the worm isbeautiful, because it is innocent and we are not , and so who are the monsters and which species shall we call aberrant In this final installment, we get to seedevelopment in the character of Will Henry There are two of them One, a sixteen year old teenager who s trying to fight the demons inside him and is still under the monstrumologist s service and a mature Will Henry that has just come back to Warthrop after a long period of being away from him Each one is different The first one is troubled and resembles Jack Kearns a lot, and the last one has already his eyes completely open to the cruel reality of the world.This book broke me It s not a book that manipulates your feelings don t get me wrong It s just that you come to love everything about this series so much, you love the characters as if they were part of yourself and you think there s still hope for everyone that when everything ends, it does it in a way that makes you feel as if you ve been betrayed, and after everything, you feel dead inside But that s good, because I think that was Mr Yancey s intention That you never forget about the series and that you let it live inside you.You re going to feel angry especially at Will Henry , sad, betrayed and empty all at the same time You re going to be left withquestions than answers, but again, that was fine for me Now the ghost of this series is living inside me, haunting me, pursuing me, without letting me alone not even for a day.And finally, I really hope this series wins popularity one day, because I feel I m the only person on Earth that has read it As I said on a previous review, people don t know what they are missing with not reading this series To tell you something else, this series is part of the slim list of books that changed my way of seeing things in life, and I m not joking about this It s like these books are my new glasses without which I only see blurred shadows and lights.Snap to, readers Give a chance to this series, let the shadow live within you too You will not regret reading it Yes, my dear child, monsters are real P.S If the series itself didn t broke my heart, then this broke it I knew about this conflict and thinking about it depresses me , but I read this post until now It makes me feel so sad to see that this masterpiece had its life threatened It s a good thing, though, that even when this series is only appreciated by a very small group of people, we fierce in our love for it

there is us and then there is everything else but us But we do not stand apart from or above or in the middle of anything There is nothing apart, nothing above, and the middle is everywhere and nowhere.I ve put off reviewing this for a long time partly because I m super lazy as always but also because well, I have complicated feelings about this final installment to the series I wouldn t go so far as to call it disappointing because that sounds harsh and don t get me wrong, I still enjoyed it It was just so staggeringly different from the first three books that it felt detached from the rest of the series for me.I understand that there was some publishing drama surrounding this book, which I hadn t known about until I opened the book and saw a brief mention of it in Rick Yancey s introduction Not knowing what he was referring to, I looked it up and found a blog post explaining the situation.Apparently, after the third book had been released, Yancey received a letter from his agent that said something like, Wow great job with the conclusion to the series, haha And he was like, Uhh, what There s still another book And his agent was like, Oh awkward So yeah, Simon Schuster had randomly canceled his contract after the third book was published Yancey noted that the same week, they made a multi book deal with Hilary Duff.Well nice job, guys.At least they changed their minds, but finding out about it still made me pretty furious I guess what saddens me most is that the contract was canceled due to poor book sales, which is a shame because it s one of the best YA series I ve ever read Meanwhile, Yancey goes on to write The 5th Wave which, in my opinion, seemed like something he only wrote to appeal to popular trends And lo and behold, that book does amazingly and gets a big movie deal before it even hits bookstores But, I digress The point is, I don t know whether this drama with the publisher had anything to do with how the book turned out It just upsets me.Anyway, moving along I totally devoured the first three books in the Monstrumologist series They were terrifying, thrilling, disgusting Everything I could want in a book I loved the style, the characters, and the story I read all three of them in a row in less than a week, which something I hardly ever do when I m reading a series usually I wait between books There was one day when I sat down and read the second half of the second book and then most of the third book and it totaled to about 500 pages worth of reading in a single day Even for me, that s pretty impressive.So of course, I eagerly awaited the fourth book, constantly checking for updates for months on end Waiting for it was agony It came out a little before my birthday, and then my mom sent it to me as an early birthday present Of course I was totally pumped to read it and soon had read the whole thing.And well Hmm I don t know how exactly to describe this book or how I felt about it.But before I get to any criticisms, I can start off by saying that it was definitely a good book, and I definitely liked it.First of all, I love Yancey s writing style in this series It matches the time period of the story without seeming forced It s full of vivid descriptions and many thought provoking moments As with the first three books, the fourth book continues to explore the thin line between monsters and humans We see Will Henry fall deeper into a dark part of his mind, to the point where he could be considered a monster himself and that s utterly terrifying, and done very well The story was thrilling and kept me turning the pages, wondering what on earth was going to happen.Ultimately, though, I just didn t find myself as invested in this final book as I was in the first three I think part of it was that it was constantly skipping around on the timeline which sometimes made it confusing, and I wasn t always sure what was happening when Will Henry is also totally losing his mind at many points in the story, which sometimes causes a dramatic change in style and while that felt appropriate for the situation, it made me feel kind of isolated from the story sometimes.I think what bothered me most was that I didn t feel attached to the characters the same way as I had before In the first three books, I adored the friendship between Will and Warthrop and found it very compelling In this book Will just came off as a total asshole a lot of the time He was so different from the character he d been before, and it was a bit jarring On top of that, I didn t feel like there were as many powerful interactions between him and Warthrop as there had been in the previous books In fact, there seemed to just be a lot of animosity between them for most of the story and I found that sad I mean, their relationship had always been confusing and had its ups and downs and I also understand Will being upset but still there were a lot of touching moments between them in the other books and I felt like that was kind of lacking in this one On top of that, the ending left me really confused and from reading other reviews, I see I m not the only one I was hoping to get a better sense of closure from the end but it was just kind of like, Huh And it was over It s been months since I read it at this point, and I m struggling to even remember exactly what happened it just didn t stick with me, besides that I remember it being perplexing.The final word I still love this series I love the first three books And I really like this one as well, but just not on the same level as its predecessors Still, even though this one was not as memorable as the first three books for me, I still thought it was very frightening, dark, and thought provoking Flying Kick a pow Reviews Pre review ranting fangirling under the spoiler view spoiler Before reading YET ANOTHER UPDATE HOORAY MY MOM SENT ME A COPY AS AN EARLY BIRTHDAY PRESENT WHEEEE I M SO EXCITED D Of course, I should finish like three

    I take The Final Descent and what do I find at the bottom Indeed, my mind was blown nuked, I don t even know how to begin to review the finale of The Monstrumologist series I guess I ll start with my expectations I had a picture in my head of one last adventure for Will and Warthrop to bag a monster of legendary proportions Warthrop dies, Will continues the craft, opens a school for Monstrumologist hopefuls, he names it The Pellinore Warthrop School for the Strange or something, he marries Li I take The Final Descent and what do I find at the bottom Indeed, my mind was blown nuked, I don t even know how to begin to review the finale of The Monstrumologist series I guess I ll start with my expectations I had a picture in my head of one last adventure for Will and Warthrop to bag a monster of legendary proportions Warthrop dies, Will continues the craft, opens a school for Monstrumologist hopefuls, he names it The Pellinore Warthrop School for the Strange or something, he marries Lillian Bates and Monstrumology quietly fades as the world gets smaller What has Rick Yancey to say about my vision of The Final DescentRick Yancey will be played by Martin Freeman I admit that it s somewhat uninspired and an ending that might belong to a fluffier book, but at least I got something right Right It s true None of my expectations ever came to light in The Final Descent Instead Rick Yancey completely, completely throws me off the loop and I can t seem to find my way back The general reaction for the finale seems to be that of disappointment and I understand because I guess majority had expectations in the same vein as mine, and Yancey dashed every single one of them Three years after The Isle of Blood, sixteen year old Will accompanies Warthrop to the Monstrumologist convention in New York to present Warthrop s grandest discovery yet, the lastTitanoboa cerrejonensis I ll end the non spoiler summary here because the rest deserve to be experienced first hand by the reader view spoiler We lost everyone in this book, and by everyone I mean everyone First and foremost, we lost Will Henry, he is no longer the devoted boy we ve come to love, at sixteen he is a manipulative and heartless killer, with a thinly veiled dislike for humanity in general,just like the man he murdered in The Isle of BloodWhose hearts must I break What lies must I maintain Through whose blood am I to wade Arthur Rimbaud He first recognized his das ungeheuer when he was thirteen during the events of The Isle of Blood, unleashing it a few times, but in The Final Descent he completes his metamorphosis and becomes his das ungeheuer He is nigh unrecognizable if not for his throwbacks to his childhood,with a hat two sizes too small, with Warthrop.Told in two stages of his life, we read about the complexity of Will s relationship with Warthrop At sixteen, he severes ties with the doctor after a series of tragic events that shaped the future, or lack of it, of Monstrumology At thirty five, he returns to check up on the doctor after being alerted of his deplorable living conditions, and finally leading to his final jump off the proverbial plate.Now we get to the cruxes of The Final Descent, its two endings Yes, you read that right, two endings, one for the great Pellinore Warthrop and another for William James Henry Pellinore Warthrop s ending is nothing short of tragic, but the how of it is I guess is open for interpretation Here is mine assisted suicide I will explain to whoever wants to know why I think this, but I d rather not include it here in my review because it will probably take seven paragraphs orThen we have William James Henry s ending, if you can call it that, the bigger crux of the two is completely unexpected These ending fortifies Rick Yancey s genius, in my opinion, because in the end The Final Descent show us that the most frightening of all monsters, the crowning jewel of Monstrumology, is man scientific name, homo sapiens to bespecific in Pellinore Warthrop s case, William James Henry the dark tide of his making hide spoiler The Final Descent did not meet any of my expectations, and I wouldn t want it any other way because just when I thought I saw the proverbial light at the end, I m plunged back into the darkness where I began We are hunters all We are, all of us, monstrumologists.It has been a wonderful, dark, gory, puzzling and thoroughly satisfyingvacationin Rick Yancey s The Monstrumologist world, made all thepleasurable by my fanatical obsessive enthusiastic Monster Buddies Vane Haley All the stars for this series

    Oh dear, that was rather disappointing The monstrumologist started so well four books back, but I have to say, this concluding volume has turned out to be the worst of the lot The deft writing is still there, the pretty prose But our intrepid, likable protagonist, Will Henry, is gone, replaced by cold hearted enigma His character has taken such a 180 between books that the change is jarring, and not for the better He is no longer a character to stand behind and cheer for And neither is any Oh dear, that was rather disappointing The monstrumologist started so well four books back, but I have to say, this concluding volume has turned out to be the worst of the lot The deft writing is still there, the pretty prose But our intrepid, likable protagonist, Will Henry, is gone, replaced by cold hearted enigma His character has taken such a 180 between books that the change is jarring, and not for the better He is no longer a character to stand behind and cheer for And neither is anyone else Worse yet, the delicate relationship that Yancey had been forming between Will and Lilly Bates through three novels is dealt several harsh and undeserving body blows in the last piece, denying the reader s desire to see a satisfying resolution to that relationship Finally, the monsters in the Montrumologist series have gotten less and less monstrous less and less mythical and interesting What started as a fresh take on gothic horror geared toward the YA market has ended as a pseudo psychological rant on the inherent evil in us all And it has not ended for the better

    There were no such things as monsters outside the human mind A clusterfuck of mindfucks is what this book is.The finale to The Monstrumologist left me withquestions than answers and admittedly, withfucking heart ache than ever Rick Yancey has truly outdone himself this time.Reading The Final Descent is like falling into a dark gap instead of a rabbit hole that used to lead one to Wonderland.This book did not make me happy At all.Nearly everything and everyone I have come to k There were no such things as monsters outside the human mind A clusterfuck of mindfucks is what this book is.The finale to The Monstrumologist left me withquestions than answers and admittedly, withfucking heart ache than ever Rick Yancey has truly outdone himself this time.Reading The Final Descent is like falling into a dark gap instead of a rabbit hole that used to lead one to Wonderland.This book did not make me happy At all.Nearly everything and everyone I have come to known has taken a 180 degree arc particularly William James Henry himself who is no longer that brave, naive young soul If The Isle of Blood is where the process of his transition to maturity took place then The Final Descent is where it is completed I find it quite hard to believe that once upon a time, he was that little boy in the tattered hat who used to retch at the sight of a monster s innards Replaced in that little boy s stead is a steel hard older version of himself who has a cold, cynical view on the entire world.Will s total transformation made the entire book evenintense to read for me He s like a walking timebomb waiting to blow off Even his strained relationship with Doctor Pellinore Warthrop is affected and none for the better.Yancey s prose is as eloquent as ever in its own beautiful haunting way but even that is not enough to make me forget my crushing disappointment and feeling of betrayal.The philosophical nature of the series took a muchdarker turn in The Final Descent, Yancey again drew a line between humanity and monstrosity He who fights with monsters should be careful lest he thereby become a monster.And if thou gaze long into an abyss, the abyss will also gaze into thee Friedrich Nietzsche For how do one fight off their own demons when one battles them in reality Perhaps that is what this series has been trying to tell its readers all along.The fourth and final book might as well reveal all the hanging questions But I was left to connect the dots all by my lonesome Instead of handing all the answers on a platter and tying up the entire thing nicely with a pretty bow, Yancey has given his readers a choice to choose their own answers and interpretation As frustrated as I am with the entire ordeal, I d still give the author a standing ovation for doing it so well.I am not happy with the outcome Not in a million years Screw you, Rick Yancey but I had expected it, and I couldn t think of any other justifying end for The Monstrumologist series.We have reached the bottom of it, you and I The final descent and this is the face of the beast that waits for us in the dark Turn around.

    I cannot do this I will not do this.This book is like when a loved one lays dying in a hospital bed, sickly, washed out, and hooked up to all sorts of machines More specifically, this book is like when that loved one asks you not to remember them that way, but rather as the way they were when they lived The Monstrumologist series has been such an incredible ride, full of growth and beauty and pain and horror I want to remember it as being as fantastic as I know it is, not the way The Final D I cannot do this I will not do this.This book is like when a loved one lays dying in a hospital bed, sickly, washed out, and hooked up to all sorts of machines More specifically, this book is like when that loved one asks you not to remember them that way, but rather as the way they were when they lived The Monstrumologist series has been such an incredible ride, full of growth and beauty and pain and horror I want to remember it as being as fantastic as I know it is, not the way The Final Descent is shaping up to make it It takes two of the most complex, interesting characters I ve ever had the pleasure to read of and shoots them into a very bleak future it seems that none of their qualities that I ve come to know and love have survived Will Henry is a brutish, melodramatic teen Warthrop is bitter and on the brink of death view spoiler Kearns death by Will s hand is treated almost cavalierly hide spoiler I DNF d at page 55.I realise Yancey s intent here This series was never supposed to end happily It is about monsters, maybe even narrated by one, and it showcases the worst of humankind However, I can t take this perversion of the characters I ve grown to root for I ve come a long way with Will and Warthrop, and I can t help but feel like this abrupt, 180 degree change in their personalities, ideologies, as values throws away the hundreds of pages of subtle, moving growth I ve enjoyed so much in the previous three books.Not to mention the writing in the introduction, Yancey s talks about how incoherent the original folios were, and how he felt betrayed by the ending I would argue that they still are quite incoherent Obviously, this is intentional Will wrote them towards the end of his life, when it seems he went insane orinsane than he already was Still, it s pretty infuriating Scattered, and not in a good way rife with confusing sentences and broken paragraphs and tense switches The lush, gorgeous prose from The Monstrumologist, The Curse of the Wendigo, and The Isle of Blood is gone as if it never was so too is Will Henry s distinct voice, wondrous and worried and tinged with the nostalgia and regret of old age He seems crazed here, and ragingly bipolar In many ways, this feels like a totally different book than its companions in the series.I assume that Will Henry s true identity and perhaps Warthrop s as well is revealed here, and so is how he found himself dead in a ditch, as is whatever grand monster Warthrop s been keeping in the Monstrumarium, but I don t care enough to let those things sully the pure glory that was The Isle of Blood Honestly, I prefer the mystery to whatever truth might be unveiled whether Will Henry was who he claimed to be, or just a particularly imaginative lunatic, it does not matter Perhaps he was a bit of both, like the Wendigo, like Kearns The mystery does not bother me in the slightest.If The Isle of Blood wasn t as perfect as it was, I would probably continue with The Final Descent But it was perfect perfectly written, perfectly told I feel like both Will and Warthrop s characters completed a very meaningful, very touching arc in that story, and it may well may be the best novel I ve ever read And it s not that I can t handle sad endings it s just that that book felt so complete Nothingneeds to be added it s like creating a sequel to a movie that maybe didn t tie up every loose end, but was enjoyable and didn t need to be continued.Will Henry says early on it may be the first book, or possibly the second that it is the reader s blessing that they are able to turn away, because he could not So I am choosing to do so Call it cowardice, but I call it doing a service to a loved one I choose not to remember them as a sickly shell of what they once were, but as the vibrant soul they always will be We are, all of us, monstrumologists.

For those who have read and loved The Monstrumologist series by Uncle Rick, we watched how Will Henry and Warthrop s relationship changed and admit it, we all loved that little shit and that cold son of a bitch This book is probably the worst and the best book ever A lot has changed and some of those are not good that it gives your heart tiny little pricks Will Henry lost a very important thing in his life in this book.Some people say it s his humanity or maybe his soul Some people said that it s his innocence I say, fuck it,he lost everything And the saddest part is we grew to love that kid from the moment he started puking his guts out when Warthrop is dissecting an Anthropophagi until he cried his heart out when Warthrop leaved him in New York And don t you just hate it when the one you love was thrown into the dark side This reminds me of a quote that I really liked Because in the end nothing is worse than seeing the fall of one you loved It was somehow worse than losing a love It made everything seem questionable It made the past bitter and confused The Fall of the Hotel DumortAnyway,I m a sucker for books that tackles the human nature so even if a lot of people hated this book, I loved it This book is gonna make you uncomfortable and will make you angry This book will break your heart and this book will make you question why the fuck did you read the book that I recommended So if somehow and I m sure this is gonna happen the book would give you emotional baggage and heartache, then DEAL WITH IT Bwahaha P.S Thank you so much Vane for making me super crazy with this series
