An injured sea monster arrives at Farraway Hall and it’s up to Ulf to save his life. But little does he know, there are bigger, deadlier fish to fry. Check out Sea Monsters and Other Delicacies.

Author: David Sinden, Matthew Morgan and Guy Macdonald

Ulf, a part-human boy, part-werewolf, is one of many endangered beasts who lives under the protection of the RSPCB (The Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Beasts). He and his friends Orson the giant, Tiana the fairy and Druce the gargoyle live at Farraway Hall, a rescue center named after the RSPCB’s founder, Professor Farraway. Before he died, the professor would stop at nothing to protect the engangered beasts.


The Injured Sea Monster

Captain Crab delivers an injured Redback Sea Monster to the RSPBC for Dr. Fielding to examine. She discovers that its brain is bleeding, but she can’t save its life without risking her own. But Ulf won’t accept defeat. If Professor Farraway were still alive, he’d save the Sea Monster. Ulf takes matters into his own hands and finds a miraculous invention—Professor Farraway’s very own venom extractor. It will remove the Sea Monster’s venom from its stinger making it safe to operate on. But what if it doesn’t work? What if the faulty venom extractor was the cause of Professor Farraway’s mysterious death? Ulf will have to take his chances.


The Beast Feast

Meanwhile, deception is stirring in the RSPCB. Professor Farraway’s evil son, Baron Marackai, has returned. He’s serving up a Beast Feast for his foreign guests and he’s determined to add the Redback Sea Monster to the menu. With his friends trapped in Marackai’s hungry clutches, it’s up to Ulf to save the day.


The Bottom Line

Sea Monsters and Other Delicacies is the second book in the new series, An Awfully Beastly Business. This fast-paced adventure is packed with nail-biting, hair-raising action. While the plot is predictable, it’s definitely an exciting read for those who love fantasy and magical creatures.

    Trekking with a reason, Across the country. You might call it treason, To leave the country in this manner. But I say, What does it matter? I see the sun set and rise, The stars visible every night. I hear the coyote’s cries, Like a baby for its mother. The sunset is orange and red, A myriad amount of colors that never end. A melancholy blue overtakes the light, And I go into the forest, Deep at night.
