Matt Archer, an ordinary freshman living in Montana, discovers something unusual on a camping trip with his uncle. Monsters are real. And living in his backyard.
But that's not the half of it...throw in a mystical knife, a covert military unit of soldiers dedicated to eliminating walking nightmares, and a prophecy about a dark war, and Matt finds himself in a job he never imagined: monster hunter.
All this insanity will leave him wondering which is tougher--killing monsters, or asking Ella Mitchell for a date.

We all know by now how found I am of stories that have monsters in them so it's no surprise that I enjoyed this book by Kendra C. Higley. I thought that this first book in the Matt Archer series had a lot of potential, and as far as first books in a series goes I thought it was very well laid out.
I love monster stories so I loved reading about the monsters that had taken up residence in his backyard and that awesomely mystical knife that he had to fight them with. What I liked most about the book though besides the characters was the plot of the book itself. I was surprised by the strength it had. While it's the first book in a series I also think that the book has the weight to stand on it's own equally well.
The book brought to mind the television show Supernatural in a lot of ways but still Monster Hunter maintained its own uniqueness. I haven't read many books like it and I think that that's rather a shame since it was so well written. There is a great sense of mystery and adventure to this novel that I think I would have enjoyed very much if I were the age of Matt when I read it but in any case I enjoyed it even now.
Overall, I thought this was a wonderfully written book with a great main character. I really came to like Matt and I enjoyed going on the monster hunts with him so I can't wait to read the next book in the series so I can get back to going on the hunts with him.
I would recommend this book to those who like young adult fictions with monsters in it and fans of the television show Supernatural since the book reminded me very much of it. I enjoyed the book immensely and I hope anyone who reads it enjoys it as much as I did.
