Review

"As chapters unwind with the grace and power of an epic, middle school readers will find themselves swept away by a wave of intrigue, fantasy, mystery, and most of all, by Ethan's believable dilemmas as he faces a world he never knew existed." -  D.Donovan, Senior Reviewer, Midwest Book Review
"J.R. Roper has filled the missing piece in the middle grade paranormal genre. There has been a void since the Spiderwick Chronicles Series, Percy Jackson Series and Harry Potter Series ended. I feel the beginnings of a "void filling" series." - Nerd Girl Official, Gladys #NerdGirlOfficial
"It swept me away on an adventure, into a unique fantasy world filled with dark and light magic. A place where many things are not as they seem. If you're looking for adventure, suspense, and mystery, I definitely recommend you read this book." - Cameo Renae - Bestselling author of the Hidden Wings Series and ARV-3
2015 Gold Medal Winner "J.R. Roper knows how to keep a reader in good suspense with an even distribution of action and compelling characters. It was not easy to detect the good characters from the bad ones because the author is adept in his writing and has an imaginative mind. He will take preteens on an exciting adventure..." - Michelle Stanley for Readers' Favorite
2015 Winner in Tween Fantasy "Roper's natural writing style sweeps the reader into this riveting story, daring his audience to join the hunt in this action-packed adventure." Children's Literary Classics

As a writer, I appreciate the on-the-edge-of-your-seat suspense, powerful storytelling and compelling, interesting characters in The Hunter Awakens. As a reader, I found myself quickly and happily immersed in a world just like my own, only with dark forces and magical powers and forces teeming just beyond our comprehension, conspiring all around but never quite able to conquer the good. As the parent of a middle school boy, I value the integrity, kindness and quick wits shown by Ethan Morus, the main character. I like that he’s an ordinary boy who just happens to be extraordinary — and doesn’t know it, but just keeps going because he has to do what’s right. It’s apparent that the J.R. Roper really understands kids that age because The Hunter Awakens is filled with characters my son can relate to — in particular, a believable hero and strong peer role model. On every level, this novel is a great read — and I can’t wait for the Morus Chronicles to continue!

A great adventure story for tweens, teens, young adults, and adults who love action and mystery! The Hunter Awakens is a great adventure story that pulls the reader in and doesn't let go. This book is a fun read - I can't wait to put it on the shelf in my classroom this fall because I know it will be devoured by my students!

While both girls and boys will enjoy this book, it is increasingly difficult to find literature that boys enjoy. The Hunter Awakens is one of those books that I know will grab my male students' attention and help them enjoy reading!

Excellent book, you can not go wrong with this first installment! Anxious for the second book, this YA story is a great read for adults as well. Characters are developed, and you want to know what is going to happen for them next. You get a glimpse of "Hellish Mel" throughout the story, and I cannot wait to see what she gets up to in the next book. You most definitely need this book on your bookshelf, you will not be sorry!

The Hunter Awakens is the perfect Middle Grade Epic Fantasy Tale! Right from the start it is full of action and epic adventure that captures the imagination and takes you on a fantastic journey. The main character, Ethan Morus is a normal boy who finds out that he comes from a long line of treasure hunters and that he has the skills to do what others can't. The author, Joe Roper, does a wonderful job of bringing Ethan's story to life with funny and intelligent characters who kids of all ages will grow to love and a world of fantasy that is easily believable and imaginative. This is a definite must read for anyone who enjoys sword play, adventure, and dark fantasy!

Gladys #XOXOtheNerdGirlOfficial Review:

*****This book was provided by the author for an honest review*****

The Hunter Awakens by JR Roper is a epic tale of a 13 year old teen named Ethan living what he thought was an ordinary life at his family's home. What he believes isn't what it seems. What other kids only read about, he is living.

Attention long time fans of the Neverending Story and the lifelong lovers of the Choose Your Own Adventure books, grab this novel and your middle school kid, get comfortable and enjoy the adventure that you are about experience.

Regardless if you're a late 30 year (raising eyebrow) old woman or an 11 year old child the "fly by the seat of your pants" thrill ride will have you anticipating every turn of the page.

JR has filled the missing piece in the middle grade paranormal genre. There has been a void since the Spiderwick Chronicles Series, Percy Jackson Series and Harry Potter Series ended. I feel the beginnings of a "void filling" series (so to speak). AND this is just the beginning so you know it will just become more and more in depth and intricate as JR builds Ethan's world page by page, word by word, and adds more characters and more personalities.

Enjoy your read. Enjoy the world that your mind is about to live in for however long you're within the pages of the book, because I did. It stirred a lot of emotions within me. For a day and a half I was 13, reading The Hunter Awakens as my feet swung back and forth on the kitchen chair, while cookies were cooking in the oven.

JR, I tip my Nerd Girl hat to you and bow to Ethan for his bravery. 5 Stars to you and him (shhhhhhhh... I guess you get a 10)

As an English teacher, I’m always on the search for good books for my students of various ages, and I think I found one I can recommend to a big chunk. The Hunter Awakens is filled with action, magic, mystery, and adventure that is perfect for middle grade readers.

Ethan and his sister have no choice but to go stay on their grandparents’ old farm after their home is destroyed by a tornado not long after their dad is killed in an accident. Their mother warns them about their grandfather’s crazy stories, but Ethan and Destry soon begin to learn that there is more truth behind his tales than anyone else believes.

The more I think about the events of this book and the different characters that were followed, the more I love it. There is this mysterious character named Mel – I thought she was some kind of assassin at first, but her story gets a bit more complex and by the end of the book, I had goosebumps once I figured out her role. I would love to sit down and have a discussion about Mel, involving questions like “what did you think about...?” with other readers. Even adults can appreciate this book; it isn’t dumbed down at all, so it’s good for developing vocabulary and reading appreciation in younger readers.

Well worth the stars, I am looking forward to reading more about Ethan’s adventure into the new role he’s just accepted in his life.
