QoM Spoiler Stash - Dark Contract (LI-002:F)
You found it! You found my secrets. Welcome to my Spoiler Stash.
Murke here. I'm not sure how you found it, but if you're reading this be aware there are spoilers ahead. After reviewing a book, I like to make a section just for myself about the major plot points or twists that I liked or didn't see coming. This one is for the fantasy book, Dark Contract by Pierce that I reviewed. So let's get on to the spoilers!
I really found Dark Contract super fun, especially since from the very beginning we knew that Crick was going to be in for a ride after making a contract with an unknown monster, Venal. All throughout the book I was expecting Venal

QoM Book Review: ??? (LI-001:???)
Welcome to the Queen of Monsters Book Reviews...
It's Murke. Something strange is happening. I'm not really sure how to explain it. I found this book in the Aetheneum. It's black with red eyes all over it. There's no title, but I can hear it whispering. I'm trying to make out what they are saying, but the more I try to this pounding goes on in my head. It's like someone is trying to reach in and claw at my insides. What are they saying?
The blurb is just a trail of letters and symbols. I don't know the language. Whatever it is, it is either so old to be forgotten or put into a code I would have to spend hours, days, months, decrypting. Yet.

Welcome back to Queen of Monsters Book Reviews!
Murke here and it's good to be back. Sorry there hasn't been a new review out lately.

How to NOT be Bitten by a Daydream (LI-001:HT)
Welcome to Into the Depths a column about exploration and the creatures we meet in the process. I'm Murke and today we're looking over another book I discovered during my preparation into my journey of Nightmare Kingdoms and the monsters that live within them. For those of you who know me from Queen of Monsters you already know the whole reason I'm doing this exploration is to document and delve into the lives of monsters and creatures. So it should be no surprise that I've been picking up books that revolve around them. Today's I am taking a look into How to NOT get bitten by a Daydream by Forrest. Let's take a look at the blurb.

The Rise of Nightmare Kingdoms (LI-001:NH)
Hello and welcome old and new fans of my new column, Into the Depths. Some of you might know me from my monster book reviews at Queen of Monsters. If you don't and are just discovering me, then a hello to you. I'm Murke and this is my newest endeavor into discovery of the monstrous. After reading Shelly's Nightmare Catcher I decided to go exploring and document my times visiting Nightmare Kingdoms and going into detail with the monsters I encounter. Of course before I do monster hunting I need to prepare so I decided to read, Dr. Fingel's The Rise of Nightmare Kingdoms: A Natural History. Here's the blurb.

Welcome back, monster lovers, to the Queen of Monsters Book Reviews.
Murke here and today we're going to be doing something a little different. If you're a first-timer to my little dark corner. This isn't my usual fare, but a fan asked me to do this as a quasi dare and I decided to take them up on it. Why all the caveats? Well that's because today's title is a fanfic. Yes, you heard me right, I'll be reviewing a fanfic called The Dark King's Muse by Peri. Now let's get to the blurb.
What happens if you discovered you can go back in time to when it all started? Ebony is a young stygian storyteller whose stories catches the eye of the Ni

Quest D-002: I Do That - A Typical Day
Murke considered herself an adventuress. Sure she wasn't part of the Explorer's Guild or the Merchant's Guild, but she planned to be. It was mostly that she wanted to get things right. Usually Murke wouldn't care how she looked or what people thought, which was clear about the messy curls of her hair that she barely brushed once a week. But this was different. She had to make her kingdom truly worthy of every monster lover out there. So everyday she went out to gather inspiration.
Her first source was books. She had so many she had started doing book reviews and surprisingly enough stygians liked her monster focused book reviews. It felt go
