DESTROY ALL MONSTERS

“One of the Best YA Books of 2019.” – Seventeen

“One of the biggest (and best) YA books of the summer.” – Entertainment Weekly

“Sam J. Miller has cemented his status as one of the most visionary fiction writers of his generation. A staggering, stunning novel.”
– Kass Morgan, New York Times bestselling author of The 100

Half gritty contemporary and half epic fantasy, with both main characters’ stories centering on the question of how we fight the monsters in our world, DESTROY ALL MONSTERS is the story of Ash, a teenage photographer investigating a spate of hate crimes in her town—while trying to help her best friend Solomon get help for his worsening mental illness. But it’s also the story of Solomon, a street kid who rides a dinosaur through a city of magic and monsters, and is attempting to expose the conspiracy against his best friend Ash, the Refugee Princess. As Ash and Solomon dig deeper, these two separate worlds begin to overlap and influence one another.
