Book Review: Jack Templar & the Monster Hunter Academy by Jeff Gunhus

30 Jul

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000030_00040]Title:  Jack Templar and the Monster Hunter Academy (The Templar Chronicles Book Two)

Author: Jeff Gunhus

Genre: Young adult/fantasy

After barely surviving the onslaught of monsters that tried to kill him the day before his fourteenth birthday, Jack Templar leaves his hometown on a quest to rescue his father and discover the truth about his past. Joined by his friends Will and T-Rex, and led by Eva, the mysterious one-handed monster hunter, Jack sets out for the Monster Hunter Academy where he hopes to find answers to his questions. Little does he suspect that the Academy is filled with dangers of its own, many of them more terrifying than anything he’s faced so far.

 

Review:

I received an ecopy of this book for an honest review.

I read this book as soon as I finished reading Jack Templar Monster Hunter and although I liked the first book, I liked #2 a lot more. It’s full of action and intrigue and is difficult to put down.

Jack and his friends are at the Monster Hunter Academy to learn how to fight monsters, but that doesn’t go according to plan. The desired outcome is ultimately achieved but in an extraordinary way.

Jeff Gunhus has a good writing style and I like his sense of humor. The characters, both human and monster, are well described.

I definitely recommend Jack Templar and the Monster Hunter Academy as well as the other Jack Templar books. I read Jack Templar and the Lord of the Vampires a few months ago and really liked it but it would have been even better if I’d read the first 2 books first.

 

 

Jack Templar Monster Hunter was chosen as a Book of the Year Finalist by Foreword Reviews.

 

Author Jeff Gunhus

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.
