Plot: Monsters are real. They live in the shadows, luring young boys away from their homes to
serve the Whisper King. Their purpose? To become monsters themselves, trained as warriors and taking on new forms.
David Kinder resisted the shadows for so long he is special when he gives in and allows himself to be taken. But his training provides him with companions and a feeling of belonging. To rise in the ranks of his fellow monsters, David must become the perfect soldier and deny anything that makes him human. Some things are harder to let go of than others.
