T. W. Faisonabout this book: Rex Monstra is a supernatural horror story weaved within the tapestry of human history. Within the pages, you follow Baron Gilles De Rais, the terrible being he summons, and all those who try so hard to stop the tragedy that follows, and slowly find the uglier sides of humanity revealed to you. Yet, even in the darkest of places, to those grotesque menageries of monstrous human fault that are illustrated within Rex Monstra's pages, there is the light of hope. Those good qualities within our fellow human beings that truly give life meaning.
The story was heavily inspired by gaps in French history where the church tried to cover up the fact that one of their crusaders had lost their mind and tried to summon a demon, and in the ugliness and beauty we can find within one another. I was always find that that beauty and ugliness seemed to be tied together, and bring hope and despair in cycles. After all, humans have a talent to surprise us with their grace just as they shock us with their cruelty and close-minded hatred.
