What if you were given unimaginable power and long life? What if for a time you had no control of the beast you had become? Only to gain control and look back in horror at the trail of destruction behind you.
This is about a curse that was sprung from the ancient God’s. God’s, that have long since disappeared into myth. Angry God’s that turned a man into a beast. A story of time and its hold on everyone but our narrator. A story of love, and loss, and betrayal, and most of all, endurance. And of a shadow that haunted him through the centuries.
On his journey home, he is swayed by what he thinks is a beautiful woman, out of an inn, and his life is changed forever. He awakens, to find that he has been turned into what one would only believe to be a monster from a fairytale. Seduced into her nightmare, he can never go home, for fear of what he might do. He’s torn between hatred and love. He learns how to move through history unseen, unnoticed. Until a fateful night when he loses everything, his love, his compass! On this night, he does something that he will regret for an eternity, and the price he pays for it is beyond measure.
He longs for it to end!
Until the shadow appeared, with an offer he can not refuse.

Memoirs of a Monster is REAL
Mesmerizing. I love Memoirs of a Monster & can hardly wait to hear how everyone is doing ... in the next book. Hamish is lovable & intriguing ... & I want him to live on forever ....
I was really excited to find this book because I LOVE Outlander & needed my Scottish Fix, history fix & the waking of imagination.
Is the writer REALLY telling his true life story. I believe so.
I totally hope it becomes a series as well. Wow.
ThankYou A.J. For waking up the history of fantasy & blurring reality.
Your art & memoirs are MUCH appreciated.
Your fan. Tracy in Los Angeles.

Was really surprised I loved it!

Normally not a fan of this genre. (Werewolves, vampires, etc.) A friend of mine recommended that I read it. I had no idea what I was getting into, I couldn’t put it down, read it straight through. It just keeps moving forward and keeps you wondering what will happen next. I agree with the last person, saying they could see it as a film. It’s in the descriptions. They’e simple, not overdone, and somehow immediately draw you in, in a way that you feel like you’re there.

Fact or Fantasy? A brilliant read!!!

Format: PaperbackVerified Purchase
Memoirs of a Monster, in my opinion, is a fantastic example of a fictional fantasy novel, that includes just enough fact vs. fiction to really make the reader doubt that it's actually fiction!
Curtis does an extraordinary job of bringing the characters to life and pulling you in to their stories, struggles and successes!
Beautifully written, fantastic storyline, engaging characters and a tantalizing cliff-hanger ending!
Spoiler Alert ** this is NOT your typical man/wolf story!!
I smiled, laughed, got angry and cried!! I HIGHLY recommend this novel! This story would make a spectacular mini-series or feature film! I believe I have found my newest favorite author and I can't wait for Book #2!
