Description-

  • A new edition of this award-winning novel, with a brand new and previously unpublished short
    story.

    "War," says the Mayor. "At last." Three armies march on New Prentisstown, each one intent on destroying the others. Todd and Viola are caught in the middle, with no chance of escape. As the battles commence, how can they hope to stop the fighting? How can there ever be peace when they're so hopelessly outnumbered? And if war makes monsters of men, what terrible choices await? But then a third voice breaks into the battle, one bent on revenge...The electrifying finale to the award-winning Chaos Walking trilogy, Monsters of Men is a heart-stopping novel about power, survival and the devastating realities of war. This new edition contains a brand new and previously unpublished short story, Snowscape. Set shortly after the events of Monsters of Men, this gripping story reveals sensational new truths about Todd and Viola's world.

About the Author-

  • Patrick Ness was born in the USA, but has lived in London
    since 1999.
    He writes both novels and short stories for adults and
    children, but is best known for his books for young adults.
    His first books for teenagers made up the Chaos Walking
    trilogy, of which the first book, The Knife of Never
    Letting Go, won the Guardian Children's Fiction Prize
    and the Booktrust Teenage Prize, followed by The Ask and
    the Answer, which won the Costa Award. All three titles
    in the trilogy were shortlisted for the prestigious Carnegie
    Medal, an unprecedented event, and in 2011 the third
    title, Monsters of Men, won the award.
    Patrick's sixth book, A Monster Calls, was based on
    an original idea by Siobhan Dowd and illustrated by
    Jim Kay. It won every major prize in children's fiction,
    including the Galaxy National Book Award, the UKLA
    Book Award and the Red House Children's Book Award.
    In 2012 it became the first book ever to win both the
    Carnegie Medal and the Kate Greenaway Medal. Patrick
    has also written the screenplay for the film of A Monster
    Calls. Directed by Juan Antonio Bayona and starring
    Liam Neeson, Sigourney Weaver and Felicity Jones, the
    film is set for release in 2016.
    In 2013 he published his next novel More Than This
    to great critical acclaim. It was also shortlisted for the
    Carnegie Medal.

Reviews-

  • Publisher's Weekly

    Starred review from August 2, 2010
    The Chaos Walking trilogy comes to a powerful conclusion in this grueling but triumphant tale. Three armies stand poised for battle, one controlled by the murderous but charismatic Mayor; a second headed by the equally Machiavellian terrorist, Mistress Coyle; the third led by the Sky, leader of the indigenous telepathic race known as the Spackle. Meanwhile, a convoy of ships is approaching the planet, bringing still more human colonists, though it isn’t clear that there will be anything left to settle when they arrive. Todd and Viola, along with the Return, an embittered former Spackle slave, find themselves in positions of increasing power and are faced with a variety of complex and ambiguous moral decisions, any one of which may lead to wholesale destruction. Trying to overcome their anger, hatred, and fear, each must confront the reasons why “in a place of all this beauty and potential... we just repeat the same mistakes.” As in his preceding books, Ness offers incisive appraisals of violence, power, and human nature, and with the series complete, it’s clear that he has crafted one of the most important works of young adult science fiction in recent years. Ages 14–up.
