51gbjLq9MDL._BO2,204,203,200_PIsitb-sticker-arrow-click,TopRight,35,-76_AA300_SH20_OU02_ The wait is finally over as the final thrilling volume of the Award-winning Chaos Walking triology is here!

Furiously paced, terrifying, exhilarating and heartbreaking  – Sunday Mail

Monsters of Men is the most anticipated crossover novel of 2010. It is the sequel to the critically acclaimed, multi-award winning The Knife of Never Letting Go and The Ask and the Answer. Set in a sinister world where men can hear each others thoughts, this is an epic, unflinching tale about the devastating realities of war. Since first publication in 2008, Chaos Walking has won seven major awards, won critical acclaim from every national newspaper and he has been heralded as a literary sensation for teens and adults alike.

In Monsters of Men, Todd and Viola face monstrous decisions as a world-ending war surges to life around them. The indigenous Spackle, thinking and acting as one, have mobilised to avenge their murdered people. Ruthless human leaders prepare to defend their factions at all costs, even as a convoy of new settlers approaches. And all the time, the ceaseless Noise lays all thoughts bare. The consequences of each action, each word, are unspeakably vast: to follow a tyrant or a terrorist? To save the life of the one you love most, or thousands of strangers? Todd and Viola are left questioning all they have known, as they hurtle towards a shocking finale.     Reviewed By Toni Whitmont, Booktopia Buzz Editor
