Orphan Jack Templar has  no memory of his parents and only the  smallest details from his Aunt  Sophie about how they died. The day  before Jack’s fourteenth birthday,  things start to change for him. At  first it’s great: A sudden new  strength helps him defend his  nose-picking friend “T-Rex” from the  school bully, and even his crush,  Cindy Adams, takes notice. But then a  mysterious girl named Eva arrives and tells him two facts that will  change his life forever. First, that he’s the descendent of a long line  of monster hunters and he’s  destined to be in the family business.  Second, that there’s a truce  between man and monster that children are  off-limits…until their  fourteenth birthday! Jack has only one day  before hundreds of monsters  will descend on his little town of Sunnyvale  and try to kill him.

As if that weren’t enough, things get even  more complicated when  Jack discovers that the Lord of the Creach (as  the monsters are  collectively known) holds a personal grudge against him  and will do  anything to see that Jack has a slow and painful death. To  stay alive  and save his friends, Jack will have to battle werewolves,  vampires,  harpies, trolls, zombies and more. But perhaps the most  dangerous thing he must face is the truth about his past. Why do the  other hunters  call him the last Templar? Why do they whisper that he may  be the  “One?” Why do the monsters want him dead so badly?  Even as  these  questions plague him, he quickly discovers survival is his new   full-time job and that in the world of monster hunters, nothing is   really what it seems.
