‘Before you reject me, before you hate me, remember: I never asked to be Hel’s queen.’
But being a normal teenager wasn’t an option either. Now she’s stuck ruling the underworld. For eternity.
She doesn’t want your pity. But she does demand that you listen. It’s only fair you hear her side of the story . . . It didn’t have to be like this.
Francesca Simon of Horrid Henry fame steps into teenage fiction with The Monstrous Child, combining an authentic adolescent voice with Norse mythology.
