Natalie's one of Frankenstein's creations and works in a New York City morgue. So of course she needs therapy. She and her friends--er, fellow monsters--have formed the world's most exclusive, most dysfunctional support group. What could go wrong?Undetected in the modern world and under pressure to stay that way, Natalie Grey, Dracula, Bob the Blob, and others (including the fetching wolfman Alec) meet regularly to talk about the pressures of being infamous in the Big Apple. Topics include how long it's been since their last sighting, how their "story" creates stereotypes they can't fulfill, and--gasp--sometimes even their feelings. But when their pervy Invisible Man, Ellis, is killed in a manner reminiscent of the H.G. Wells novel, it's clear someone's discovered their existence and is down for some monster busting. Led by Natalie--and definitely not helped by Hyde's bloodthirsty tendencies--the members of Monstofelldosis Anonymous band together for security and a little sleuthing. And maybe--maybe--if they don't end up dead, they'll end up friends somewhere along the way.

But not even that could stop them. Now, with a possible cure in hand, they're headed east, looking for a safe zone behind the rumored "Wall. " They're feeling pretty optimistic. That is until Dave stops sleeping and starts lifting huge objects. Eat. Slay. Love. Because they haven't got a prayer.

As one of Frankenstein's Creatures, Natalie Gray knows that unique parts sometimes make up a great whole. Still, leading a diverse support group for monsters--now including Cthulhu!--isn't an easy task. Especially not since the internet arrived. New York City embraces the different and the bizarre. Still, even for such a fun-loving city, the supernatural and monstrous might be a bit too much. It's been six months since the members of "Club Monstrosity" overcame the most recent spate of anti-monster violence and they've reestablished their routine of meeting in a church basement once a week to (ugh!) talk about their feelings. Still, they also know a war against them is brewing. Natalie and Alec (the werewolf) have begun dating, and the mummies Kai and Rehu are tighter than a bug in a...well, bandage. But when modern means (YouTube, Twitter, bits and bytes) are used to chilp away at the solidarity of these ancient monsters, it's up to Natalie to save the day. #MonstersInNewYork may be trending on Twitter, but this girl's trending toward saving the day...somehow.
