About the Author:

MarcyKate Connolly is a writer and arts administrator living in New England with her husband and pugs. She's a coffee addict and voracious reader. She is also the author of Monstrous.

Review:

"Those who loved the brilliant folklore and friendship elements in Monstrous will find them again in this companion. Ravenous dives right into the hearts of emotionally and morally complex conflicts and introduces a new spin on a classic tale." (Samantha Randolph, YABooksCentral)

"Ravenous is a fantastic book. It is full of adventure and fantasy and magic. It is a stunning book about a girl willing to do anything to save her brother from the witch about to eat him." (Carina Olsen, Goodreads review)

“A fantastical adventure fortified by its flawed heroine.” (Kirkus)

“Within this creative realm, Connolly compassionately explores human emotions as Greta grapples with a newly discovered lineage. A welcome return to a complex land of fantasy and friendship.” (Booklist)

“Even with her flaws, her fierce dedication to her brother is admirable, and her slow transformation into a more accepting, open person is all the more satisfying given her earlier closed views.” (Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books)

PRAISE FOR MONSTROUS: “This is a dazzling and unique once-upon-a-time about a girl who is part dragon, part bird, part cat, all hero.” (--Natalie Lloyd, author of A Snicker of Magic)

PRAISE FOR MONSTROUS: “Kym’s bravery shines, as she fights against the menacing forces in Bryre and also struggles to figure out where she, a self-described monster of a girl, belongs. This remarkable, absorbing debut will enchant readers.” (--Rebecca Behrens, author of When Audrey Met Alice)

PRAISE FOR MONSTROUS: “Pays tribute to classic fairy tales while turning the tradition on its head. A smart, ambitious adventure, led by a heroine whose differences only enhance her humanity.” (--Emma Trevayne, author of Flights and Chimes and Mysterious Times)

PRAISE FOR MONSTROUS: “A likely read-aloud that has its share of guts, blood, and grim reality within this fantasy land, Monstrous will keep young readers thinking about trust, good and evil, friendship and loyalty, and devotion to community.” (Booklist)

PRAISE FOR MONSTROUS: “Magic, fantastic creatures, mythology, and a bit of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein combine here for an exciting...tale.” (School Library Journal)

PRAISE FOR MONSTROUS: “Connolly invokes fairy-tale elements with ease, and... the formidable theme of sacrifice resonates far beyond the final page.” (Publishers Weekly)

“Fans of the first installment will seek out this adventure-filled fairy tale” (School Library Journal)
