Nick’s life as a CIA spy should be fulfilling, but it has only given him unhappiness — a wife who committed suicide and two daughters who resent everything he has become. Now, stuck in the Amazon on the last mission of his career, he must track down Matheus Ferreira, a drug lord and terrorist the U.S. has tried to bring down for years. If he succeeds, he’ll have the chance to start his life over again.Just when he’s on the brink of catching Ferreira, he’s framed for a murder that turns his world upside down. His only chance of survival lies in West Virginia where Lilian Love, a woman from his past, owns the secluded Monarch Inn. He’s safe, but not for long … Monarch Reader Guide1. The word “Monarch” has multiple meanings - a sole, often hereditary ruler such as a king, queen, or emperor; and a type of butterfly. How do these meanings play into the themes of the novel?2. How has the loss of Nick’s wife affected him? Do you think if she had died of natural causes instead of suicide that Nick’s attitude toward women and his career would be different?3. Monarch is told from three characters’ points of view. How does this affect the novel’s themes?4. The focus on relationships is prevalent throughout the novel; many of these are triangular, involving three people. How do these triangles overlap and affect the characters?5. The main villain of Monarch is someone we never actually meet (Ferreira). What is your attitude toward a faceless antagonist, and do you think it affects the focus of the story?6. Since we don’t see anything directly through Catarina’s point of view, how would you describe her experience?7. What would you describe as Nick’s main goal? How do you think he is sidetracked in this goal?8. What would you describe as Devan’s main goal? Do you think his relationship with Nick helps him bring this goal into focus?9. What would you describe as Lilian’s main goal? Do you think her goals change when she sees Nick again?10. Catarina makes many sacrifices for her son. How are these sacrifices different from Nick’s relationships with his own children? From Lilian’s for Devan? From Kyle’s for Alex?11. Like Nick, Lilian also mourns the loss of a past relationship. How do you think her loss is similar to Nick’s?12. How do the bugs in Violet’s jars symbolize each character? Do you feel each character is trapped by his or her own perceptions? How are they freed?
