Book Review: Hunterland
Grab your stakes and your rock salt. Monster hunting class is in session.
Liam Hunter has warded off hungry vampires, slayed monstrous beasts, and put agonized spirits to rest since he could hold a stake. When trouble comes through the Hunterland message board, alerting them that nurses are dying at high schools across Wisconsin in a string of fishy “suicides,” the Hunter family hits the road to save the day.
The trail leads to Falkville Falls, where Liam clashes with Olivia Davis, whose maddening family seems inexplicably embroiled in this haunting mess. Olivia has always mothered her little sister, Pepper. But when the Hunter family opens her eyes to the hidden underworld of real monsters prowling the dark, she realizes she can’t protect Pepper from this newest threat by herself.
Can the two families work together to uncover who or what is responsible before the next murder, or will this vicious death cycle have no end?
I have read a handful of books by author, Dana Claire and really enjoy them. This book is no exception. It kind of gave me the television show, Supernatural vibes. Which I am a fan of. I do want to point out that this book is geared towards young adult readers, and it did come off that way to me. Not that I as an adult did not enjoy this book, but I just know the targeted reading audience will enjoy it more.
This is not your standard vampire book. It had some mystery surrounding the deaths of the various teachers. Which I liked the mystery aspect of this book. Every character had a purpose in the story. That is something that I like about Dana's books is that her characters are engaging and while reading it is like the stories come alive as mini movies in my head. If you are looking for your next great read, then you should pick up a copy of this book!
