Dan Wells' gift is that he can make the reader like a sociopath. He captures the skill of creating an anti-hero, and makes it firmly his own. I cannot wait until the third installment of the John Cleaver series. I won a pre-release copy of Mr. Monster from the publisher and Goodreads, and was thrilled when I learned I won, thrilled while waiting for the book to arrive, thrilled while anticipating its read...and now thrilled to have read it. What a rush, what a ride.
