All 16-year-old Connor is trying to do is avoid his ex-best friend when he stumbles upon a trapdoor to a secret chamber under his school. But when Sally Rodgers breaks into the same secret chamber looking for an ancient being, things take an unexpected turn . . . and Connor's life will never be the same again.

Along with the mysterious Sally and, later on, his new friend Locky, Connor discovers the Monuments - gods who have been buried for generations - who created the world and hid themselves away from humanity to keep everyone safe. But now they're exposed and vulnerable, and Connor isn't sure who, himself included, can be trusted with the knowledge and the power these gods have.

Monuments is the first book in an exciting duology from YA star, Will Kostakis. Look out for the gripping conclusion, Rebel Gods, out in 2020.

Monuments by Will Kostakis – 13+ LGBT+ Male character. Will is another Australian author and the story is set in Sydney at an elite boarding school.  The book is about mythical beings known as Monuments and a young boy’s quest to find them and thwart danger in the process. It’s perfect for those who have finished the Percy Jackson series (or anything by Rick Riordan) and want to get stuck into another mythological adventure story.
