Fourteen-year-old Matt Archer spends his days studying Algebra, hanging out with his best friend, and crushing on the Goddess of Greenhill High, Ella Mitchell. To be honest, he thinks his life is pretty lame until he discovers something terrifying on a weekend camping trip at the local state park.
Monsters are real. And living in his backyard.
But that's not the half of it. After Matt is forced to kill a strange creature to save his uncle, he finds out that the weird knife he took from his uncle's bag has a secret, one that will change Matt's life. The knife was designed with one purpose: to hunt monsters. And it's chosen Matt as its wielder.
Now Matt's part of a world he didn't know existed, working with a covert military unit dedicated to eliminating walking nightmares. Faced with a prophecy about a looming dark war, Matt soon realizes his upcoming Algebra test is the least of his worries.
His new double life leaves Matt wondering which is tougher: hunting monsters or asking Ella Mitchell for a date?

Monster Hunter

Not a bad story really well thought out, be nice to understand where the monsters came from but suppose that's what book 2 is for.

Fantastic listen. 100% enjoyable!

Great story, great narration. Gets straight into the action. Total audio enjoyment!!!

I'm not exactly the target demographic, being a 50-year old mum of 3, but my 14 year old son and I listened to this at the same time and we both really enjoyed it. We discussed the story etc together. It was simple, unadulterated fun.

Problem is: where is the rest of the series? Audible, can you please get on to this.

I am now reading the second one on my Kindle, the first time I've ventured into a print book in over a year, as I haven't much spare time. But I just couldn't wait to find out what happens next.

PS: a great tip about the peanut butter sandwiches. Which I am now enforcing, much to my son's disgruntlement!

Tween monster hunting

I love monster hunting books and it's so refreshing to find one written for a younger audience. I have a 13 year old that would love the MHI series, for example, but the language is enough to stop me from recommending it to her. If you have a younger teen that loves Buffy or Supernatural or other monster-themed shows, and they are a reader, this a good book. Minimal language, minimal sex, violence that's limited to the monsters. It's a good bridge for the genre.
