Publisher's Summary

Whether it's kitsune running rampant in the museum, were-gorillas rampaging at the zoo, or a cupid wreaking havoc on her daughter's birthday party, Jess Friedman can handle any monster the supernatural community of Cleveland can throw at her.

Except maybe the disapproving stares from the women at her daughter's day care. Or the awkward conversations with her rabbi about her working for the Catholic Church as a New Templar, hunting down the things that go bump in the night.

That's right, Jess Friedman isn't just an ordinary mother of three trying to make it through the world, she's also the official Cleveland Regional Monster Hunter for the Holy Roman Catholic Church (What? You thought Bubba was the only one?). This Jewish mother is anything but stereotypical as she battles demons, tames monsters, negotiates with a vampire lord, and tries to get snacks delivered to her daughter's kindergarten class on time!

This hilarious volume collects the first four Monster Hunter Mom novellas by J.D. Blackrose (The Soul Wars):

  • Tweety & the Monkey Man
  • Runaway
  • Handle with Care
  • End of the Line 

The Monster Hunter Mom stories take place in the popular Bubba the Monster Hunter shared universe, along with the escapades of Mark Wojcik, Mason Dixon, Caitlin Kelley, and of course, Bubba himself.

Very enjoyable writing, fun stuff!

Monster Hunter Mom worthily expands the Bubbaverse (aka New Knights Templar) setting established in the Bubba the Monster Hunter series. Our lead is exactly as described: a monster-hunting mom, and brings to the table everything you could hope to have under that premise. And in the spirit of the Bubbaverse you've got good humor, fast action, likable characters, and intriguing monsters. What's not to love?

Enjoyed the author’s writing.

I enjoyed this story. The idea is great. I had a few problems with the way things were presented. It seems a little choppy with the presentation of an idea or character from the past. The idea is just thrown in. This particular book is a combo of a number of novellas. I’m not a fan of novellas so I’m glad they were combined and presented in this format. I tend to ignore novellas and would have missed this series. I’m a huge fan of audio books. There is nothing better than a story with a great narrator. The narrator can take an okay book and make it memorable because of their skill. Sometimes I feel as if the narrator believes in and enjoys the story. I didn’t find that love and skill in this story. I was distressed to find the narrator was also the author. There seemed to be a disconnect in the narration. I really think another narrator could have made this a GREAT BOOK. I appreciate the author taking on the expense of an audio version, they aren’t required to make audio versions. However, this was an okay audio version that could have been a FABULOUS book with a different narrator. I am going to look into more of this author’s work. I’m anticipating some good books in my future.
