Another great book! Again, it starts with a warning about monsters and that if you read this book, you become fair game for monsters. He also warns about blood, gore, death and kissing (although the kissing is very minimal). That's a pretty good warning. If your children are queasy, don't have them read this yet. I felt that Book 1 was pretty action packed but this felt nonstop. Especially towards the end. I thought poor Jack would get a rest and immediately he would be on to fight the next battle. Hopefully he'll have a little time to recover for Book 3.
I felt that the plot moved along well and enjoyed learning some answers along with Jack. There's still enough we don't know which will make reading the next book just as much fun as reading this one was! We learn some information about their mission at the end which doesn't make it appear that this series will be ending anytime soon, so hopefully Mr. Gunhus will keep these coming!!
Note: This is the second book in the series.
Jack Templar is a monster hunter from a long line of monster hunters. Too bad he didn't find out until the day before his fourteenth birthday, when all the monsters on the planet would be hunting him for their dinner. His job for the moment is to stay alive long enough to learn how to kill them.
Along to learn with him are his best friends T-Rex (nose-picker extraordinaire), Will (who wants to be a monster hunter himself). And Eva, instructor at the monster hunter academy who has brought them safely across the ocean to one of the last deeply hidden Monster Hunter Academies in the world. There, she has promised Jack that Master Aquinas will answer the questions he has about his past and about his father, who is being held hostage by an evil vampire.
Of course, once there, Jack's hope of getting his questions answered are immediately dashed. He's busy trying to handle one of the world's worst bullies, Daniel, who is also an instructor at the Academy. Daniel also happens to have a "thing" for Eva.
With wolves at the Academy gates, and a gnawing desperation to get to his father, Jack feels that time is running out...
Jeff Gunhus originally started this series to compel his son to start reading, and it shows. This story is gripping on a number of levels. The very first sentence is designed to draw the reader's interest. Even if the reader missed the first book in the series, it doesn't really matter, the book has a recap of the first text and the action is such that there is little time for reflection of past events.
The characters leap off the page and grab the reader and draw him or her into the always dangerous, sometimes deadly adventures. This is a series that demands to be read.
Actually I enjoyed it a lot. I'm looking forward to start the third book anytime soon.
This book was clearly more "mature", so to speak. This book was longer, more descriptive, more creative and full of interesting secundary stories that make the principal story more appealing, more challengin, much more better. The description of the enviorenments were very visual. You can picture yourself everything without further thinking. It was really easy thanks to all the details.
The story is growing darker and darker on every page you read.
But what I think Jeff is doing here is amazing. I can imagine children or young people reading and enjoying this book. Not only for them, older people will find a way to enjoy the book.
I like how this is going. Hope you find it good too.
My only problem - Unfortunately there were lots of typos. I hope future installments are more rigorously edited.
