Product Description

Product Description

When thirteen-year-old Ethan Morus is forced to stay on his grandparent's old farm, he expects to find weathered barns, rusty tools, and a creaky house in need of fresh paint. What he doesn't expect is to hear a legend placing his family at the center of an ancient treasure hunt. Or find burial chambers protected by poltergeists, or a secret lair guarded by an ancient beast. And least of all, Ethan doesn't suspect that powerful sorcerers are watching his every move.

They've found Ethan and believe he is from a line of treasure hunters who possess a rare instinct to locate powerful artifacts. Whether he has the instinct or not, Ethan is faced with a choice—search the Morus property and find what they want or lose yet another family member.

"The Hunter Awakens was a beautifully written and creative tale which kept me glued to the pages. It swept me away on an adventure, into a unique fantasy world filled with dark and light magic. A place where many things are not as they seem. If you’re looking for adventure, suspense, and mystery, I definitely recommend you give this book a try." – Cameo Renae - Bestselling author of the Hidden Wings Series and ARV-3

5.0 out of 5 stars Everything you want it to be 8 July 2014
By Kelly Stanley - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
As a writer, I appreciate the on-the-edge-of-your-seat suspense, powerful storytelling and compelling, interesting characters in The Hunter Awakens. As a reader, I found myself quickly and happily immersed in a world just like my own, only with dark forces and magical powers and forces teeming just beyond our comprehension, conspiring all around but never quite able to conquer the good. As the parent of a middle school boy, I value the integrity, kindness and quick wits shown by Ethan Morus, the main character. I like that he’s an ordinary boy who just happens to be extraordinary — and doesn’t know it, but just keeps going because he has to do what’s right. It’s apparent that the J.R. Roper really understands kids that age because The Hunter Awakens is filled with characters my son can relate to — in particular, a believable hero and strong peer role model. On every level, this novel is a great read — and I can’t wait for the Morus Chronicles to continue!

5.0 out of 5 stars A great adventure novel! 8 July 2014
By Jenny - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
A great adventure story for tweens, teens, young adults, and adults who love action and mystery! The Hunter Awakens is a great adventure story that pulls the reader in and doesn't let go. This book is a fun read - I can't wait to put it on the shelf in my classroom this fall because I know it will be devoured by my students!

While both girls and boys will enjoy this book, it is increasingly difficult to find literature that boys enjoy. The Hunter Awakens is one of those books that I know will grab my male students' attention and help them enjoy reading!

The Hunter Awakens is the perfect Middle Grade Epic Fantasy Tale! Right from the start it is full of action and epic adventure that captures the imagination and takes you on a fantastic journey.

The author, Joe Roper, does a wonderful job of bringing Ethan's story to life with funny and intelligent characters who kids of all ages will grow to love and a world of fantasy that is easily believable and imaginative. This is a definite must read for anyone who enjoys sword play, adventure, and dark fantasy!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Perfect Ten 20 Sep 2014

Gladys #XOXOtheNerdGirlOfficial Review:

*****This book was provided by the author for an honest review*****

The Hunter Awakens by JR Roper is a epic tale of a 13 year old teen named Ethan living what he thought was an ordinary life at his family's home. What he believes isn't what it seems. What other kids only read about, he is living.

Attention long time fans of the Neverending Story and the lifelong lovers of the Choose Your Own Adventure books, grab this novel and your middle school kid, get comfortable and enjoy the adventure that you are about experience.

Regardless if you're a late 30 year (raising eyebrow) old woman or an 11 year old child the "fly by the seat of your pants" thrill ride will have you anticipating every turn of the page.

JR has filled the missing piece in the middle grade paranormal genre. There has been a void since the Spiderwick Chronicles Series, Percy Jackson Series and Harry Potter Series ended. I feel the beginnings of a "void filling" series (so to speak). AND this is just the beginning so you know it will just become more and more in depth and intricate as JR builds Ethan's world page by page, word by word, and adds more characters and more personalities.

Enjoy your read. Enjoy the world that your mind is about to live in for however long you're within the pages of the book, because I did. It stirred a lot of emotions within me. For a day and a half I was 13, reading The Hunter Awakens as my feet swung back and forth on the kitchen chair, while cookies were cooking in the oven.

JR, I tip my Nerd Girl hat to you and bow to Ethan for his bravery. 5 Stars to you and him (shhhhhhhh... I guess you get a 10)
