Max Helsing: Monster Hunter
Publisher: Orchard Books
Max Helsing is no stranger to ghosts, ghouls and creatures of the night, but it's still a bit of a shock when he wakes up on his 13th birthday to discover that suddenly EVERYTHING wants to kill him. Right now. Even his new Hellhound puppy, Eightball. Worst. Birthday. Ever.
An ancient curse has been triggered and a deadly enemy awakened; an enemy not only with his sights set on Max, but on raising a terrible darkness, and who's not going to let anything stand in the way.
Monster Hunter is a pace-filled adventure full of supernatural battles, school hassles, and running for your life. With a diverse cast of characters who excel in witty repartee, the humour brilliantly offsets the monsters in this edge-of-the-seat race to remove Max's curse and, well, save the world. If only it were that simple…
