I highly suggest starting the free sample portion of the book. The initial pages start off fast, describing the encounter of the then-fairly normal office worker with a werewolf, and are action packed, funny and entertaining. If you like it, your good to go for the series. If not, look elsewhere.
Whether you can enjoy this book really depends on your standards. If you likely finely written and crafted books look elsewhere. If you can enjoy an action packed "guilty pleasure" type read now and then, this one is far better than most.
The first two novels deal with Owen Pitt, who survives a werewolf attack to become one heck of a monster hunter. The second book deals with Owens continuing adventure. The last story is more of a story of Earl Harbinger, a main character from the first two and an adventure in the cold north.
Overall, the stories are well written, and highly entertaining. I would like to think that Owen has many similar qualities to other heroes who are popular. Owen is not high on finesse but more of a brawler. He's quick to get into a fight and take that fight to the enemy. As a comic book guy, I had a great deal of fun reading about Owen fighting all sorts of creatures.
Again, I'll revert back to the value of this book. 3 books for $10 seems like a good price.
Also, for all the premise that "everything supernatural is going to try to kill you" the book starts with, by the end of book one and continuing into the others there's an ever-growing narrative that not everything is as straightforward as that.
Some have described this series as "Buffy with a lot more firepower" and I'd go with that. The battles are intense and scary, the actions of MHI's enemies are spooky and unnerving, there is the gross-out factor every now and again, but thankfully there is a LOT of humor and camaraderie to make MHI a group of people I'd want to know and hang out with. Even if, like I said, I'm pretty sure I'd get eaten first.
