The book is your average story of a teenager coming to grips with change in life. He has recently been forced to relocate with this parents down south, leaving behind his friends. It's a tale of adjustment and of a kid getting to grips with himself as a person, and learning just who he might become and who he wants to become. The book nearly cashes in on every single fantasy cliche you've got. There's the hero who unwittingly finds out his destiny as the Hunter, who, as far as I can tell, is some sort of guardian, protecting humans from the magical world and possibly vice versa. He has friends who happen to be an independent-minded girl with an attitude and a boy with a kooky take on life. Nearly every concept in this book has been done before, such to the point that I was actually comparing it to American Dragon: Jake Long, Sailor Moon and Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
The thing is, despite this, it's hard not to get hooked in. Perhaps its because you can genuinely like the characters. Well, except for the bullies, I suppose. There's your average teenage humorous banter that gives each character a deep personality. You can empathise with certain characters and you genuinely want to continue reading, in order to see how things get along. It does start off slow, but you genuinely want to see the characters through their daily routine. You share their hopes and literally share their dreams and nightmares. Though I could see some of the plot twists a mile off, I genuinely wanted to know how the characters would react and how they would survive.Read more ›
I think I have never read a book with so many typos (not to mention several grammar mistakes): your/you're - were/we're - their/they're - then/than - its/it's - plural 's' and Saxon genitive ''s' were CONSTANTLY misused so as to hinder comprehension. Random mispellings and curious grammar mistakes which could not be attributed to a bad (very, very bad) spell check programme added to the general shabbiness of the whole.
And yet this is a pity. Despite a weak ending, short, hurried and unsatisfying, this novel was very well plotted and well written. The writing was a bit clumsy and conventional at the beginning, with some unnecessary repetitions, but it got quickly more and more convincing. Characterization might not be the most original ever heard but it was well thought of and detailed. The setting was interesting as well and some good humour seasoned the whole of it.
This is why a novel probably conceived for YA did not fail to interest and entertain me. This author clearly has talent: let us hope he becomes a little more fastidious about editing.
Ok, it sounds like an Enid Blyton Famous 5 story, but call me a big kid I REALLY enjoyed it.
The ending has been left open for a sequel that I HOPE the author will write as there is an even bigger evil waiting in the wings, one that not only the team may not survive but also the Hunters family are unwittingly woven in to.
So if you like a kid's adventure story in the good old fashion way then give it a read.
Oh and to Luke William, PLEASE PLEASE WRITE THE SEQUEL.
