An enchanting adventure that weaves a spell
Justina Ireland
A great blending of realistic characters, spiritualism and magic, fantasy, mystery, a heist story and a strong element of romance. I love it when I encounter a book of a type I don't often read and get completely carried away with. And The Monsters We Defy is such a book that draws you into a brilliantly recreated historical world
SciFi Mind
Clara is a heroine for the ages, and her 1920s Black Washington society, both the glamour and the grit, is so compellingly evoked it's as though Penelope has given us a peek behind the veil to hear the tales of our ancestors
Alaya Dawn Johnson
Penelope's blend of fantasy and history is pitch perfect. . . Readers will be wowed
Publishers Weekly

T. L. Huchu
A high-stakes, delightful read

Marie Brennan
Rich and immersive. . . full of mesmerizing magic!
