Matt Archer: Monster Hunter (Matt Archer #1), by Kendra C. Highley

"Terrific page turner! Fourteen-year-old Matt Hunter struggles to absorb the knowledge that there are monsters in the world, and that a magic knife has chosen him to fight them. Matt matures, finds love (or at least some smooching), and kills a lot of monsters -- what's not to like? I thoroughly enjoyed this very competently composed YA/11+ read from first-time novelist Kendra C. Highley. Reminiscent of Rick Riordan's Percy Jackson, Matt is edgier, rawer -- perhaps in part because he lives in a universe filled with adults, both good and bad, as well as kids, whereas Percy's adventures take place in something more like a Neverland. Matt lives in the real word, albeit a real world inhabited by some pretty gruesome monsters. I can't wait for the next installment." -- Amazon reviewer

Fourteen-year-old Matt Archer spends his days studying Algebra, hanging out with his best friend and crushing on the Goddess of Greenhill High, Ella Mitchell. To be honest, he thinks his life is pretty lame until he discovers something terrifying on a weekend camping trip at the local state park.

Monsters are real. And living in his backyard.

But that's not the half of it. After Matt is forced to kill a strange creature to save his uncle, he finds out that the weird knife he took from his uncle's bag has a secret, one that will change Matt's life. The knife was designed with one purpose: to hunt monsters. And it's chosen Matt as its wielder.

Now Matt's part of a world he didn't know existed, working with a covert military unit dedicated to eliminating walking nightmares. Faced with a prophecy about a looming dark war, Matt soon realizes his upcoming Algebra test is the least of his worries.

His new double life leaves Matt wondering which is tougher: hunting monsters or asking Ella Mitchell for a date?
