What do you do when you're face-to-face with the dark creatures of Philippine Mythology?
Alejandro Pardo is a man of many opinions and an encyclopedic knowledge of the Philippines' mysterious creatures (even if he is a bit of a lout). His Lost Journal recounts what he witnessed with his own eyes as he plumbed the depths of the ancient world of mythology.
Here you will meet the Kapre, a shape-shifter who morphs before your very eyes (you may find that what you thought was your dog, or your mom, is actually a Kapre in disguise!); the Mangalok, a deceptively angel-faced, predator who feasts on human innards; and a host of other amazing and terrifying creatures. But fear not—Pardo also recorded three ways you can protect yourself against them. Sometimes.
