5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Second Book! 25 Jun. 2013
By Melanie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Jack and his friends, Will and T-Rex, are headed to the Monster Hunter Academy with Eva. Jack was thrown into a confusing situation in Book 1 and that was all about survival and now he's ready to hear some answers! Getting to the Academy won't be easy and, once he arrives, not everyone is happy to see him or ready to embrace him as the One. Jack doesn't look like anyone special and he doesn't feel it, either, so he will need to be thoroughly tested to see if he can handle the pressure. Jack, Will and T-Rex each have their own agenda once they reach the Academy and their friendships are tested. Will Jack get the answers he needs? Will he survive the challenges he faces? Will he be able to keep his friendships intact?

Another great book! Again, it starts with a warning about monsters and that if you read this book, you become fair game for monsters. He also warns about blood, gore, death and kissing (although the kissing is very minimal). That's a pretty good warning. If your children are queasy, don't have them read this yet. I felt that Book 1 was pretty action packed but this felt nonstop. Especially towards the end. I thought poor Jack would get a rest and immediately he would be on to fight the next battle. Hopefully he'll have a little time to recover for Book 3.

I felt that the plot moved along well and enjoyed learning some answers along with Jack. There's still enough we don't know which will make reading the next book just as much fun as reading this one was! We learn some information about their mission at the end which doesn't make it appear that this series will be ending anytime soon, so hopefully Mr. Gunhus will keep these coming!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Just When You Thought It Couldn't Get Any Better 17 Oct. 2013
By Jesse D. Self - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
My son and I enjoyed reading Book 1, Jack Templar Monster Hunter. Book 2 is a rare thing, it not only keeps the story moving forward, it is as good as or better than, the first book. Jeff Gunhus has created a smart, quirky, sarcastic, compulsive kid in the main character of Jack that you've just got to love. Jack battles monsters, gets a crush on a girl, and tries to save his father...all the while dealing with his new found powers, growing up, and fighting for his life. In all this chaos, he never looses sight of his friends as extended family or the bond of his word once he makes a commitment. As in Book 1, Mr. Gunhus very subtly creates an underlying theme of the importance of making right and moral decisions, commitment to family, and even in fear, facing what ever challenge life offers, and moving forward. Monster Hunter Academy is in many ways a story about injured or damaged youth who rise above their backgrounds to become awesome human beings. To paraphrase one of the main characters: real strength is not about knowing what you stand "against" - it's about knowing what you stand "for." Great read for adults and kids. Strong book.

Jack Templar and the Monster Hunter Academy (Book 2) by Jeff Gunhus
Note: This is the second book in the series.
Jack Templar is a monster hunter from a long line of monster hunters. Too bad he didn't find out until the day before his fourteenth birthday, when all the monsters on the planet would be hunting him for their dinner. His job for the moment is to stay alive long enough to learn how to kill them.
Along to learn with him are his best friends T-Rex (nose-picker extraordinaire), Will (who wants to be a monster hunter himself). And Eva, instructor at the monster hunter academy who has brought them safely across the ocean to one of the last deeply hidden Monster Hunter Academies in the world. There, she has promised Jack that Master Aquinas will answer the questions he has about his past and about his father, who is being held hostage by an evil vampire.
Of course, once there, Jack's hope of getting his questions answered are immediately dashed. He's busy trying to handle one of the world's worst bullies, Daniel, who is also an instructor at the Academy. Daniel also happens to have a "thing" for Eva.
With wolves at the Academy gates, and a gnawing desperation to get to his father, Jack feels that time is running out...
Jeff Gunhus originally started this series to compel his son to start reading, and it shows. This story is gripping on a number of levels. The very first sentence is designed to draw the reader's interest. Even if the reader missed the first book in the series, it doesn't really matter, the book has a recap of the first text and the action is such that there is little time for reflection of past events.
The characters leap off the page and grab the reader and draw him or her into the always dangerous, sometimes deadly adventures. This is a series that demands to be read.
4.0 out of 5 stars Growing darker and darker 14 Sept. 2014
By Robinson Recalde - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
It was pretty good.
Actually I enjoyed it a lot. I'm looking forward to start the third book anytime soon.
This book was clearly more "mature", so to speak. This book was longer, more descriptive, more creative and full of interesting secundary stories that make the principal story more appealing, more challengin, much more better. The description of the enviorenments were very visual. You can picture yourself everything without further thinking. It was really easy thanks to all the details.
The story is growing darker and darker on every page you read.
But what I think Jeff is doing here is amazing. I can imagine children or young people reading and enjoying this book. Not only for them, older people will find a way to enjoy the book.
I like how this is going. Hope you find it good too.

5.0 out of 5 stars An even stronger novel than Book 1 8 Sept. 2013
By TeacherReader - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I love these Jack Templar books. They're like a grittier, darker Percy Jackson. In this second installment, Jack gets some training, battles crazy creatures, and endures a trial that none before him have ever survived. I was worried that a book about training at the Academy would be slow. Indeed, it's not quite as frenetic as the first book, but Gunhus balances action and world-building well to keep the reader engaged. Overall the plot, characters, and setting were stronger in this second book.

My only problem - Unfortunately there were lots of typos. I hope future installments are more rigorously edited.
