Orphan Jack Templar has no memory of his parents and only the smallest details from his Aunt Sophie about how they died. The day before Jack’s fourteenth birthday, things start to change for him. At first it’s great: A sudden new strength helps him defend his nose-picking friend “T-Rex” from the school bully, and even his crush, Cindy Adams, takes notice. But then a mysterious girl named Eva arrives and tells him two facts that will change his life forever. First, that he’s the descendent of a long line of monster hunters and he’s destined to be in the family business. Second, that there’s a truce between man and monster that children are off-limits…until their fourteenth birthday! Jack has only one day before hundreds of monsters will descend on his little town of Sunnyvale and try to kill him.
This book has restored my faith! This is the book that has gotten my 14 year old daughter interested in reading. From the first moment that she opened the book, Jack’s story drew her in. Jack didn’t know that he was to be a monster hunter. He had grown up living a normal life. It wasn’t until just before he turned 14 that he began to notice immediate changes. His muscles, his speed, and a creepy stranger that he passed on the street.
This story will continue to draw you in with it’s twists, turns and various creatures that you will meet within the story. This is one book that not only did my teenager enjoy, but I did as well. It was something that for days we both talked about. We are both anxiously awaiting a sequel!
