Of Monsters and Men signifies a new generation of Icelandic hitmakers; like their predecessors before them, the band has defied what is expected from the Icelandic music scene, having released two successful studio albums and fostered a loyal international fanbase. To claim Of Monsters and Men surprised their audiences is something of an understatement. Their almost-overnight-success was, by all stretches of the imagination, regarded as an impossibility by observers of the industry; after all, the band had six members who were barely out of their teens and routinely utilised such off-kilter instruments as the accordion and trumpet. Perhaps most surprising of all was how Iceland — a country of only , people — had, once again, produced a small group of artists capable of taking the planet by storm. This is a band that, so far, has felt no compulsion to challenge the listener, nor darken them with long and emotive instrumentals; OMAM are here to create clap-your-hand, jovial tracks, and thus bring some warmth to the often cool and dramatic tones so familiar in the Icelandic music scene.

Walker's U. Ness won the annual Carnegie Medal from the British librarians , recognising the year's best new book for children or young adults published in the U. The title is taken from previous dialogue in the series; "War makes monsters of men" is said in Knife , which both Todd and Viola later quote. An army of Spackle, the indigenous population of the planet, marches on New Prentisstown from one direction, and the forces of the Answer from the other. Mayor Prentiss has been freed by Todd to help defend the city, whilst Viola attempts to warn oncoming settlers. The Mayor's army and Spackle army engage in a destructive battle.
