eARC Review: A Cosmology or Monsters – Shaun Hamill

A huge thank you to NetGalley and Titan Books for this review copy!

*Publication Date: 30th June 2020*

The blurb from the back of the book:

Noah Turner’s family are haunted by monsters that are all too real, strange creatures that visit them all: His bookish mother Margaret; Lovecraft-obsessed father Harry; eldest sister Sydney, born for the spotlight; the brilliant but awkward Eunice, a gifted writer and storyteller – the Turners each face their demons alone.

When his terminally-ill father becomes obsessed with the construction of an elaborate haunted house – the Wandering Dark – the family grant his last wish, creating themselves a legacy, and a new family business in their grief. But families don’t talk about the important things, and they try to shield baby Noah from horrors, both staged and real.

As the family falls apart, fighting demons of poverty, loss and sickness, the real monsters grow ever closer. Unbeknownst to them, Noah is being visited by a wolfish beast with glowing orange eyes. Noah is not the first of the Turners to meet the monster, but he is the first to let it into his room…


This book was everything I wanted it to be!

It was dark, twisted, disturbing and so weird!

There is so much content in this book that may put you off (sexual abuse, death, rape, assault, death…the list goes on) but it all contributes in a way that brings the story along well.

It is very well written and I found that I couldn’t put it down.

You’ll have to keep the lights on for this one!!

I gave it ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

My name is Lisa and the pooch in my profile picture is my baby, Skye. I love everything bookish! I also find things like tarot and angel cards, along with runes and gemstones really interesting and I like to incorporate these into my photos.
