Jack Templar and the Lord of the Vampires
(Book 3)

Jack is back.

After his adventures at the Monster Hunter Academy (which included fighting a goblin army, befriending an ancient werewolf, and battling two fire breathing dragons), Jack Templar was hoping for a rest. No such luck.

In Book #3 of the Jack Templar Monster Hunter series, Jack embarks on a quest to track down and acquire the first of the five mythical Jerusalem Stones, an ancient power found by his ancestors the Templar Knights. Only the reunited Stones can stop Ren Lucre, the Dark Lord who holds Jack’s father hostage and prepares for an all-out war against an unsuspecting human world. But each Stone is held by a different Creach Lord and recovering them will not be easy. Jack and his friends begin their quest by seeking out one of the most powerful and dangerous keepers of the Stones, the Lord of the Vampires. The fate of the world rests on Jack’s shoulders and he will be tested like never before. But true monster hunters always do their duty…come what may.

Jack Templar and the Lord of the Vampires.

What I say (review): Jack Templar and The Lord of The Vampires is the third book in the Jack Templar series, but it works well as a standalone novel.

14-year-old Jack is descended from the last of the Templar Knights who were demon hunters. In this instalment Jack and his friends Eva, Daniel, T-Rex, Xavier and Will head to Paris on a mission to retrieve one of the tomb stones from the Lord of the Vampires.

The book is a good, clean, fantasy story for children or young adults. Jack is feeling the sting of a first crush and potential jealously. He's also trying to save the world and fulfil his destiny. Vampire mythology/legend is addressed in the book and I found the backstory of lost love very intriguing.

There are several twists and turns in the plot and there's a particularly big twist at the end which I was not expecting. It will definitely influence the rest of the series.
3.5 - 4 Stars in my Sky!

Author Jeff Gunhus

Jeff Gunhus grew up in Cyprus, Greece, and Saudi Arabia where there was a distinct lack of television. He quickly found books were the gateway to incredible adventures, fascinating characters and unbelievable discoveries. Now, with five children of his own (all who watch too much television, in his opinion), he has enjoyed revisiting his old books and reliving those adventures all over again.
