About the Book:

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.

As if that weren't enough, things get even more complicated when Jack discovers that the Lord of the Creach (as the monsters are collectively known) holds a personal grudge against him and will do anything to see that Jack has a slow and painful death. To stay alive and save his friends, Jack will have to battle werewolves, vampires, harpies, trolls, zombies and more. But perhaps the most dangerous thing he must face is the truth about his past. Why do the other hunters call him the last Templar? Why do they whisper that he may be the "One?" Why do the monsters want him dead so badly? Even as these questions plague him, he quickly discovers survival is his new full-time job and that in the world of monster hunters, nothing is really what it seems.

Buy the Book!

The tour won't arm you with enough information, you must buy the book. Jack Templar Monster Hunter is a great middle grades fantasy adventure. I'm so convinced that my 9 year nephew will love it there is a copy going under the tree (Shh! don't tell him).

 About the Author:

Jeff Gunhus grew up in Cyprus, Greece, and Saudi Arabia where there was a distinct lack of television. He quickly found books were the gateway to incredible adventures, fascinating characters and unbelievable discoveries. Now, with five children of his own (all who watch too much television, in his opinion), he has enjoyed revisiting his old books and reliving those adventures all over again.

  1. Sounds like a fun book! That was a great trailer video, too. Thanks for the point-out - I enjoy books like these, even if I haven't been a middle schooler in several decades... X-D

  2. I've been reading more because my niece and nephew are not at that age. It's fun (and they're usually a quick read).

  3. My special skill. Hmm. I am extremely intelligent. The CIA hires me to help them interview detainees. I also I'm psychic. And I know that you're thinking that I am talking bologna. I also am super super super strong, and I drink raw ostrich eggs everyday.
