An award-winning collection of fifteen beastly tales with new stories from bestselling authors:

Welcome to a world where humans live side by side with monsters. Where a demonic band breathes fire and scales; predatory kraken sing to their prey and harpies take on a strange attraction. Fifteen top voices in fiction explore the intersection of fear and love, of monsters and men, and our fatal attraction to what hides in the shadows. Featuring stories from bestselling authors Cassandra Clare, Patrick Ness and Holly Black, this award-winning collection will make you laugh, cry and keep you wide-awake at night...
