I recommend Jack Templar: Monster Hunter to anyone 10 and up. Monster hunting can get a little violent and younger children may be a little nervous! Plus, Jack is turning fourteen and children under the age of ten may not enjoy hearing about his crush on Cindy Adams. The author also warns kids not to read this book if they are afraid of monsters! I liked the wonderful descriptions and I feel that I know Jack, Eva, and the other characters and places described in the book. Jack seems like a good guy, and I appreciate the fact that he isn’t perfect and doesn’t always make the best decisions. The action starts right from the first chapter and doesn’t let up until the book ends. This is the first book in a series, and I look forward to reading the rest of them. The good news is the author doesn’t leave the book off with a cliffhanger! Fans of The Percy Jackson series will want to get to know Jack!
Happy Reading! ~L
