Jack Templar and the Lord of the Vampires Blog Tour Review
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.
My Review: Jack Templar and the Lord of the Vampires Book 3
I hated every time I had to put the book down. This is full of drama, action, danger and history. The worst part of reading this series is my memory of the previous books. I just could not take the time to read the other books again right now. The story went from one drama action scene to another the whole way. It did not slow down the pace.
I liked the characters. Even the monsters. When we see some of them by their selves you can see their personality in them. The human characters are growing with their experiences but also staying true to themselves. They have weaknesses, but more positive traits. They want to save the world and their friends. They don't to let each other down.
I did stop and look up some of the scenes in Paris on the internet because they were fascinating to read about. It is the only way I will see them.
Jack and his two best friends and two monster hunters are on a mission to find the five Jerusalem Stones and bring them back together so they can save the world from all the monsters reuniting to fight against and destroy mankind. The stones are with different groups of monsters.
They decide to go after the vampire one first.
Before they can even try and find the vampire leader and its lair they have to find a man that might be able to help them. They have to face lots of challenges first. Working together they solve some of the puzzles and fights.
This is a book aimed at middle school. Harry Potter, Percy Jackson or Ranger Apprentice fans would like this series. Where really all ages can enjoy it. It is exciting adventure.
I was given this ebook to read and asked to give honest review of it and join the blog tour.

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.
