Shelfari edited the description of Jack Templar Monster Hunter: The Templar Chronicles: Book One Sunday, December 30, 2012.
If you're not a monster hunter, don't read this book! Seriously, this book is not meant for you. By reading it, you run the risk of attracting monsters to your position and being attacked. So, unless you are willing to join the fight...just walk away. Still here? OK, don't say I didn't warn you. Let me introduce myself. I'm Jack Templar and I'm an orphan. Recently, I discovered that I came from a long line of monster hunters. You know, vampires, werewolves, zombies, you name it. Turns out there was some kind of truce between monsters and the hunters that kids under fourteen were off-limits. I didn't find out about all this until the day before my birthday. Yeah, you guessed it, my fourteenth birthday. So, all bets were off. The monsters were coming to get me. Not only that, but I also found out that if monsters around the world could choose one human to kill, it would be me. Why? I haven’t a clue, but the hunters I've met talk about a prophecy and that they think I'm the One...whatever that means. I’d like to find out some day, but for right now, I’m just trying to stay alive. If you want to hear a story that will scare you, gross you out and forever change the way you look at the world around you, then you came to the right place. But, if you want to keep the illusion that the world is a safe and orderly place, then get out of here and stop wasting my time. Do your duty, come what may.
