Bestselling author Meg Collett retells the ancient Filipino legend of the aswang in this sexy, bone-chilling new series.
I’ve always known I was a monster, and I don’t mean some teenage vampire s**t either.
My mother abandoned me when I was ten years old because I have a freakish mutant disease that makes me incapable of feeling pain. I bounced from one foster family to another because too many people like to test my medical condition in a game of “Try To Make Ollie Scream.” At sixteen, I killed a man for taking that game too far.
Two years later, I’m still on the run in Kodiak, Alaska. Here, I’m the most dangerous person around, until I come face to face with a creature that should only exist in folklore. The monster is an aswang, and I, with my medical anomaly, am uniquely qualified to hunt the beast that haunts the night. At least, that’s what the two scarred, mostly crazy ’swang hunters tell me when they kidnap me and take me to Fear University, a school where young students learn to hunt and kill aswangs.
I arrive at the university a prisoner, but I stay because I finally find my freedom.
For once in my life, I belong. I’m needed. I make a home for myself inside the university masquerading as an old Alaskan prison. Something close to happiness warms my icy heart when I’m with my scarred, still mostly crazy tutor, Luke Aultstriver. For a murdering runaway like me, Fear University is a haven where I can put my skills to good use hunting monsters in the night.
But when certain truths come to light and even more lies are exposed, I fear that I, Ollie Andrews, am the worst kind of monster of all. And, maybe, they should be hunting me.
Warning: This book is recommended for mature readers due to sexual content, violence, and language.
I really enjoyed this book, and I really loved the character Ollie. I can't wait to read the second book!

I couldn't put it down!
OMG LOVE IT!
OMG She did it again!! Don't know which book is my favorite anymore because this was just WOW!!! Ollie's on the run but when she kills a monster she ends up in Fear University where you're trained to kill aswangs. There she becomes friends with Sunny and trains with Luke (oh and the attraction is there) and feels like maybe she might belong somewhere. But what happens when you find out stuff you're not supposed to and learn about other things? Well this is Ollie's story and I so want, no need book 2!!!
The author knows how to tell a story that just brings the reader into the world that she wants you know about and this story is no different. Totally totally totally recommend it but make sure you have time to read cause you won't want to put it down!
