Darkmouth, the last Blighted Village on earth is being invaded. Constantly. Just like the last thousand years.
Finn is a Legend (AKA monster) Hunter- or he will be, on his thirteenth birthday… in eleven months. So why does everyone remind him about it constantly, never a moment of rest, always in training! As if he doesn’t have enough to worry about already, what with the Savage twins from school, and his father becoming a member of the Twelve and the Minotaur. Did I mention the Minotaur?
The reason I liked this book so much- one of the reasons, anyway- was that it found a brilliant way to incorporate myth and technology together: monsters that can only be contained by one gadget. It created a whole government, complete with different departments (I like the Department of Snacks), for something supernatural, much like J.K. Rowling’s Ministry of Magic. Not just a government actually- a whole world.
