Matt Archer: Monster Hunter (Matt Archer #1)
Release Date: 08/18/12
299 pages

Fourteen-year-old Matt Archer spends his days studying Algebra, hanging out with his best friend and crushing on the Goddess of Greenhill High, Ella Mitchell. To be honest, he thinks his life is pretty lame until he discovers something terrifying on a weekend camping trip at the local state park. 

Monsters are real. And living in his backyard. 

But that's not the half of it. After Matt is forced to kill a strange creature to save his uncle, he finds out that the weird knife he took from his uncle's bag has a secret, one that will change Matt's life. The knife was designed with one purpose: to hunt monsters. And it's chosen Matt as its wielder. 

Now Matt's part of a world he didn't know existed, working with a covert military unit dedicated to eliminating walking nightmares. Faced with a prophecy about a looming dark war, Matt soon realizes his upcoming Algebra test is the least of his worries. 

His new double life leaves Matt wondering which is tougher: hunting monsters or asking Ella Mitchell for a date?



First I have to give a HUGE Thank You to YA Bound for allowing me to be a part of this tour. This book was a refreshing read for me and a change from what I normally read. I enjoyed it so much I am buying a copy for my son to read. In Matt Archer: Monster Hunter we meet Matt and his family. Matt loves his normal boring life of hanging with his best friend and crushing on the school it girl. So when Matt's uncle tells him they are going on a camping trip he is very excited. That is until the camping trip takes a turn for the worse. Matt's uncle is attacked by a monster and Matt kills it with a knife in his uncles bag. Matt's life is about to take a turn in so many ways.

Once Matt's uncle realizes that Matt used the knife to kill the monster he realizes he has to tell Matt that the knife has chosen who will wield it. Once Matt's uncle tells him the history of the knife and the history of the family Matt is not sure what to believe but he knows one thing for sure and that is things do go bump in the night. Along with the help of Matt's best friend they will have to hunt down the monsters and kill them. Will Matt and his friend be able to kill all the evil monsters or will the monsters kill them?

I am so looking forward to reading book two in this series so we can see what happens to Matt and his best friend Will. This is a must read for all kids who love things that go bump in the night.
