About the Author
Kendra C. Highley lives in north Texas with her husband and two children. She also serves as staff to two self-important and high-powered cats. This, according to the cats, is her most important job. She believes chocolate is a basic human right, running a 10k is harder than it sounds, and that everyone should learn to drive a stick-shift. She loves monsters, vacations, baking and listening to bad electronica.

Back in the outback and this time more is at stake. Life hasn't been easy for Matt. He is still struggling with accepting all about his knife spirit, dealing with the razzing of his awesome crew, the guilt of death is really burdening him more and more, his nightmares are darker and his past he didn't really know would effect him comes straight into his world.
Now besides monsters he has a monster in the terms of witches to deal with. He finds out more of the puzzle and how the witches play a role in the evil of what is happening. They fight dingoes, spiers and strange spikey things but the biggest fight for matt is from within.
Matt is struggling with the ideas of losing all that he loves. He struggles with his wanting to make his uncle proud while keeping him safe. He struggles with the thought of losing his family. Trying to accept his fate and what it will do to his family. All the while growing up and becoming who he wants to be.
this book will have you love his group of guys more as they see him for more than just a kid and monster hunter but as Matt the person. You fall more for Will who adds laughter and smiles to this motley crew and you see a new element of family and love be brought into the picture.
As we get closer to the end fight, we have more at stake and matt has more to deal with and accept. He has gone through such a transformation and dealt with so much you wonder how much more can this poor guy take.
A great fun reading book that will have you begin to see the whole picture of the monsters and why they are here, matt's role and what is really happening with everyone and how they fit into the puzzle.
The characters do tend to be a bit one sided but this is not deep literature. I do wish Matt's father and mother characters made more emotional sense though. Aunt Julie is a token kickass female fighter thrown into the book to avoid seeming to be too misogynist and the girlfriends come slightly into their own in the next book in the series. But all in all not a really good role model for young females as the girls seem to primarily function as romantic release for our stressed heros, more than independent characters..
In this book, with the inclusion of Eric Archer, Matt's father, there is a much deeper look at family dynamics, but Eric is still holding something back. Just when the teams think they have gotten a handle on the monsters, the rules are turned on their heads. A deeper mystery is unfolding and the culprit appears to be one step ahead, leading to a significant twist to the outcome. I think this might be my favorite book to date.
My only complaint is that I must wait for the next book and that book will be the last of the series. This is an excellent read and I cannot recommend it highly enough.
Please be cautious of spoilers in this review. I can not believe this book. I mean Matt has to stab Will. As we know from the last book Matt's dad is going to play a big role in the book. We find out why he feels he can not come home again. Most important we figure out we figure out why Mimi is so important. So there are lots of surprises in store.
I can not wait till the next book. I want to know what is going to happen next. We are getting close to D-day and I want to see how the respective battles turn out. I do not just mean Matt's. His sister is going play a big role on what happens next. The book ends at a cliff hanger though. Well you have to read the book to figure it out. I don't want to give anything too big away.
