+ Pull List


A new tale of terror and high-stakes science fiction hits close to home!

Growing up in the city of Compton is tough enough as it is, but as Travon has learned all too well, growing up as an orphan in the city of Compton with gang members hunting you down every day is even tougher. But all of that is about to change, because today is the day that aliens make first contact with Earth-and it only spells doom for life as we know it!

Death, devastation, and mayhem-can a single teenage boy rise to the challenge and protect his surrogate family and friends...or will he die trying?

But turn them you shall, and you won't want to stop. Monarch is just that good. Read Full Review
