"Riveting... tender, ferocious"
New York Times

Magic and monsters collide in this beautifully crafted, powerful, intense tale told through the voices of a diverse and rich cast of characters, including transgender and asexual men and queer women.

An unforgettable novel from a rising star in fantasy fiction.

One October morning, Laina gets the news that her brother has been shot and killed by Boston cops. But what looks like a case of police brutality soon reveals something much stranger. Monsters are real. And they want everyone to know it.

As creatures from myth and legend come out of the shadows, seeking safety through visibility, their emergence sets off a chain of seemingly unrelated events. Members of a local werewolf pack are threatened into silence. A professor follows a missing friend’s trail of breadcrumbs to a mysterious secret society. And a young boy with unique abilities seeks refuge in a pro-monster organisation with secrets of its own. Meanwhile, more people start disappearing, suicides and hate crimes increase, and protests erupt globally, both for and against the monsters.

At the centre is a mystery no one thinks to ask: Why now? What has frightened the monsters out of the dark?

The world will soon find out.

    ""This harrowing and lyrical novel combines elements of urban fantasy with biting social commentary."

    “Big and bold and ambitious, packed with everything we need right now: more heart, more monsters, more cooperative solidarity economies.”
    Sam J. Miller, Nebula Award–winning author of "Blackfish City" and "The Blade Between"

    “Profound and unsettling in the best way…Sharp, insightful social commentary wrapped up in a tale of the uncanny.”
    Rebecca Roanhorse, New York Times bestselling and Hugo Award–winning author

    “Through a series of diverse, rich, and beautifully written voices, Turnbull deftly weaves together a story of supernatural beings, otherworldly entities, magic, and quantum physics, superimposed onto the social and political challenges of our mundane world. Throughout, we are forced to dwell not only our own humanity, but question who exactly are the monsters we fear? Once I started this novel I could not put it down. You won't be able to either.''
    P. Djèlí Clark, Nebula Award-winning author of "Ring Shout"

    'Magic and monsters roam every corner of this page-turner, but the real star is Cadwell Turnbull's breath-taking prose. A perfect hymn to otherness and the beauty of the strange... so good it reads like music. Simply masterful.''
    Sylvain Neuvel, author of the Themis Files, The Test, and A History of What Comes Next

    'No Gods, No Monsters is both elegant and violent: a cutting, clarifying illumination of humanity in all of its magic and monstrosity. This is a story with blood, brains, and, ultimately, heart.''
    Isabel Yap, author of Never Have I Ever: Stories
