Product Description

Product Description

In this companion short-story to Matt Archer: Monster Hunter, fifteen-year-old Matt Archer finds himself in the Australian Outback on the trail of his latest targets...and hunting hyper-intelligent, mutated Dingoes is not his idea of a great summer vacation.

Making things more complicated, Matt's Uncle Mike--aka Major Tannen--is his C.O. To Matt’s consternation, the major's new fiancée , Captain Julie Hunter, is along for the trip.

When Captain Hunter disappears during a routine scouting trip, it's up to Matt to help his uncle find her before it's too late.

4.0 out of 5 stars Matt goes Down Under with Trash Talking Dingoes! 29 Jan 2014
By Bigfoot
Format:Kindle Edition
*I received a free copy of this book from the author via Smashwords in exchange for an honest review*

Matt is finally coming to terms with his role as a monster killer and has best friend Will working with them. For the summer, they are part of a military operation in the Australian Outback to kill mutant dingoes. But these creatures are smarter, speak Australian English and work as a team, leading to one of the squads being kidnapped.

"It was just an attempted strangling...nothing serious."

Matt and Will are happy to be working together and visiting Australia though that changes when they are attacked by trash talking Aussie mutants. Matt is already struggling with his jealousy over having to share his precious time with Mike with Mike's new fiancee' Julie, who is part of the team for this mission. When Julie's team are kidnapped, Mike has to risk Matt and his team to rescue her. Could the Archer family have a more complicated time right now? In later books, I will assume yes!

I wasn't sure if I would take to Julie but she is a good character and Mike does deserve a bit of happiness when he is not monster hunting. You do feel sympathy for Matt though. Mike is his father figure and sharing him with a stranger is difficult, especially when Mike and Julie will be moving to DC. In this book I really enjoyed the dingoes new intelligence and the fact that it was a different monster from those in book one. It keeps things interesting when there are different monsters and locations.

My only complaint is that the book was just too short! I'd have liked to have seen more in the search for Julie to give it more time for the tension to build up, maybe a more fleshed out big fight at the end. But that is just a bit of nitpicking on my part! I did enjoy this book even though it was short and I'm moving straight on to book 2.

5.0 out of 5 stars Short and Sweet... 6 July 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
A short story which continues the Matt Archer story-line.

Although much shorter than the full-length works in this series, 'Matt Archer: Monster Summer' is complete with its own plot twists and fast-paced action.

Although I would not necessrily recommend this at an introduction to the series, it is a must-read if you enjoy the first in the series and wish to follow every move these amazing characters make.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Tie In 20 July 2013
By Clifford J. Phillips - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I liked how this small story added to the series, while not stealing the spotlight from the main series. It added more information on a point of growth for Matt and his friends/crew, while adding details to the type of monsters/creatures that will be hunted.

I very much enjoyed this story and thoroughly enjoy the whole series.

For some this may not be their cup-o'-tea, but it just may be the right mix for others who do not get caught up in minutiae and who focus on a lively story - no specific criticism towards any one poster meant by this; it is only meant in a general frame of reference.

I find that this one is worth reading in my opinion. Have a good day!

4.0 out of 5 stars A good adventure between two books! 30 Mar 2013
By The Every Free Chance Reader - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Did I enjoy this book: I did enjoy this book. I read it every free chance I had and finished it in a day.

This was a fun adventure that helped reintroduce me to Matt, Mike, and Will before I read Blade's Edge. (I read Monster Hunter almost a year ago...I remember it but this was a great way to catch up.) And we get to meet Captain Julie Hunter, Matt's soon-to-be aunt.

The action was great. I enjoy how Matt and Will, best friends, work together in the field on their top-secret missions. Matt is still young but starting to grow up a bit. He is finding his way.

Would I recommend it: I would recommend it. If you have read Matt Archer: Monster Hunter and you plan on reading Matt Archer: Blade's Edge, read this one. It's a great addition to the story.

Will I read it again: I will not.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Enjoyable Read 26 Mar 2013
By Ariana R. Lum - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I enjoy reading YA novels and this one was no exception. It kept my interest from the beginning. If I have to read half the book before anything starts to happen I will lose interest and will not finish the book. Matt Archer: Monster Summer was interesting enough for me to buy the sequels.
