Chasing the MoonChasing the Moon by A. Lee Martinez
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Diana, a poor department store salesperson, gets a great deal on a new apartment, but there’s a catch—Vom the Hungering. He’s the monster in her living room closet. As soon as she signs the lease and carries her stuff in all exits in her apartment vanish. To leave, Diana must let Vom out, and once she does, he’s doomed to devour her. It turns out–all the apartments in her building have zany curses and Diana’s letting Vom out triggers events that led up to an apocalypse. Only it’s a funny end of the world with monsters that are as humorous as the giant Stay Puft Marshmallow Man in Ghostbusters.
I loved all the silliness along with the funny but true human psychology behind the main characters; however, even though the main source of destruction was amusing, it didn’t quite work for me. In my humble opinion, the end wasn’t quite up to the beginning and middle. That said, if you like lighthearted horror, scary-cute monsters, and escapism in general, this book is worth a read.
