These books are really action-packed. They are perfect for fans of the Percy Jackson books since they are full of quests and monster battling. The plots are a bit more straightforward since there aren't all those pesky gods to confuse you, but they are also much much darker.
I love these books because:
* They are exciting
* My students love them
* They aren't overly complex
* One of the main characters, Eva, is a girl who kicks major butt
* One of the secondary characters, Xavier, fights creatures through math, science, and technology. Xavier reminds us that smart people can be awesome too.
Book 1: Jack Templar, Monster Hunter
Book 4: Still in the works
These are independently published books, but you can get them through all the major book retailers.
