Jack Templar Monster Hunter Publisher's Summary

Jack wakes up in the morning before his 14th birthday to a number of strange things. He's faster, stronger, and Aunt Sophie is crying a lot. On his way to school he runs into a creepy guy with vampire teeth and an ominous message, and before the day is out Mrs. Fitcher, the principal, morphs into a hideous creature with giant bat wings. After a few detours on the way home, Jack arrives to a backyard full of zombies, a houseful of harpies, and oh, by the way, Aunt Sophie has been keeping a few secrets of her own.

Luckily, accomplished monster hunter Eva shows up to clue Jack in on his true identity and teach him how to fight - something he needs to learn quickly since Ren Lucre, the most evil monster in the world, can't wait to kill him. Little does Jack realize that his ancestors were the once-mighty Templar Knights and that he may be the very last of a heroic bloodline. He will discover whether he possesses the bravery to stand up against the monsters...and whether that alone will be enough to survive!

    After barely surviving the onslaught of monsters that tried to kill him the day before his 14th 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.
