Gr 9 Up–Someone or something is killing teachers. After a string of murders covered up as suicides, the Hunter siblings Liam and Jac, along with their father, come to Falkville Falls because they suspect monsters are involved, and they are monster hunters. They team up with Liv, Pepper, and their father, Sheriff Davis, to figure out what is really going on and stop the killings, but is the Davis family somehow part of this? Things are further complicated as a tension between Liam and Liv slowly turns into love. This book has a dual point-of-view narrative with Liam and Liv taking turns giving their perspective on the grim events unfolding. Liam gives more insight to monster hunting with gory detail (and innuendo about his growing attraction to Liv) and Liv reveals more of her connection to the teacher murders while being infuriated by and infatuated with Liam. The novel reads very quickly overall, and has many twists and turns, perfect for fans of popular paranormal shows like Netflix’s Wednesday.
VERDICT A wild ride of a paranormal thriller with a will they/won’t they romance that will keep young adult readers turning the pages and wanting more. A fun purchase for high school collections where paranormal romance is popular.
