Set in an alternate matriarchal
1900's Asia, in a richly imagined world of art deco-inflected steam punk,
MONSTRESS tells the story of a teenage girl who is struggling to survive the trauma of war, and who shares a mysterious psychic link with a monster of tremendous power, a connection that will transform them both and make them the target of both human and otherworldly powers.
