New Kid #1 The New Kid

Presenting New Kid #1 The New Kid by Temple Mathews.

Here is the summary of the book:

Will Hunter is used to being the New Kid; Harrisburg High School is his fifth new school in less than three years. By now, he knows not to be fooled by the bright pep rallies, the wholesome jocks, the innocent cheerleaders. He knows the evil lurking underneath. It’s the same evil that took his dad eight years ago: the same evil he battles every day. Natalie Holand’s life fell apart the night her sister Emily disappeared. No one believes her when she tells them what she saw: yellow and green eyes, glowing beneath the surface of the water in which Emily supposedly drowned. And Emily isn’t the only person to go missing in Harrisburg lately. The town is changing, not for the better, and Natalie doesn’t know why. What she does know is that, whatever’s happening, it’s bad, and the New Kid is right in the middle of it. Because Will has a secret even bigger than Harrisburg’s, and there’s more to it than even he knows. This fast-paced, action-packed first novel by veteran Hollywood screenwriter Temple Mathews takes the idea of high school as hell to a whole new level. Will’s story, part wish-fulfillment sci-fi adventure and part iconic hero’s journey with a side of budding romance, will appeal to teen readers of both genders.

Refreshing and very old school, Temple Mathews' The New kid brings back the norms of before. How we saw evil, high school and demon hunters. Yup you heard right this is the story of the new Kid, Will Hunter. Super genius, he has been hunting demons for a very long time. Battling them city after city, but this time, this might be the one. The one where Stan aka Lucifer aka The Dark One is finally defeated. The truth however comes out at last and it is definitely not something Will was expecting at all.

Very refreshing and a fast read. Will Hunter is a very interesting character to read about. A pretty face and so much more. This demon hunter is one to watch out for. Then there is Natalie, the interest, a distraction at first but a later girlfriend and a beacon in the dark for Will, she becomes his confident and his ally against the fight with the devil himself. A very sweet chemistry there, the one that balances out the seriousness of this book.

And my God! The climax was just so edgy. Will hunter may be accustomed to being a new kid by now, but the action and the game changing climax was just amazing. Simply brilliant job Mr. Mathews.
