A post-apocalyptic monster story teeming with horror, Lovecraftian-inspired monstrosities, romance, and one devil-may-care teenager named Lupe who is much more than she seems. 


Sanity-eating monsters ended humanity. The unlucky few who survived now hide in the cracks of a broken world. And yet somehow, beneath the graveyard that used to be San Antonio, Rico met Lupe, the girl of his dreams – and an enigma. How did she get here? And why is she smiling? No one survives out in the street. No one smiles where the monsters lurk. But Lupe does.

Join teenagers Rico and Lupe as they journey through a the desolate landscape of monstrous devastation – and their own obstacle-ridden relationship.

I’m a graphic novel lover and this book hits the mark head on. I love the positive female main character, Lupe, and her growth throughout the story. Though there are monsters and it’s quite a fictional story, the topic of mental illness is spotlighted through loneliness and dogging on yourself. Of course it was full of adventure, danger, and action too. It’s quite the fictional story of the nonfictional pandemic times we live in today. It should be well received by graphic novel lovers.
