Synopsis: The Apocalypse has come to the Sugar Hill mental asylum.
He’s the hospital’s newest, and most notorious, patient—a paranoid schizophrenic who sees humanity’s dark side.
Luckily he’s in good hands. Dr. Eli Alpert has a talent for healing tortured souls. And his protégé is working on a cure for schizophrenia, a drug that returns patients to their former selves. But unforeseen side effects are starting to emerge. Forcing prior traumas to the surface. Setting inner demons free.
Monsters have been unleashed inside the Sugar Hill mental asylum. They don’t have fangs or claws. They look just like you or me.
Review: WE ARE MONSTERS has a very unique group of characters and is very well-written. While the characters were interesting, I personally didn’t always know (or care) what was going on. The illegal experimentation bothered me a great deal, especially with how everyone (except Dr. Alpert) was seemingly okay with what Dr. Drexler was doing. There are some interesting concepts in WE ARE MONSTERS, but I got a bit lost in the differing viewpoints, realities, and characters. I can see a lot of readers enjoying WE ARE MONSTERS, but it just didn’t appeal much to me.
