Jack Templar can be the next great children's literary hero. Everything about him is easy to relate to, he's not perfect, he makes mistakes but he learns from them and comes out stronger in the end. There's so much to love about these stories.

His whole group of friends is fantastic and they work well together as a team. A great thing to see and something that I think sets a good example for kids reading. ( )

Jack Templar is a Monster Hunter, as we found out in the first book of the series, and he is now on a quest to recover the Jerusalem Stones, each one of which is held by a different monster lord. If he gets them, he can do something that requires spectacular magic (I'm not saying what, but it'll be worth it).

This continues straight on from the third book,[b:Jack Templar and the Lord of the Vampires|18523510|Jack Templar and the Lord of the Vampires (The Templar Chronicles, #3)|Jeff Gunhus|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1379765585s/18523510.jpg|26226517] and I would advise at least starting there if not at the first. The choices Jack made in the previous part of his quest have a major impact on this story, and the twists and turns and worries about who can and cannot be trusted are partly bound up in that decision.

The confusion is enhanced by a visit to the oracle at Delphi, who frankly doesn’t help much, except to muddy the waters even more. She does give Jack and his team (and they are a great team, full of strengths, weaknesses and complementary talents) a few cryptic pointers, though, and he sets off to find the Lord of the Werewolves to continue to gather the necessary talismans to fulfill his doom.

This is a well-paced, riddle-filled episode, and the descriptions of dark and gloomy forests are equally matched by the lighter side of European culture. Mr Gunhaus is a master of tension, and also a pretty mean hand at describing fights and battles too. There are plenty of those, but this is more of a psychological battle. The plot hangs together well, although I had a couple of reservations about the final outcome.

An exciting, nay nerve-wracking gallop through the black forests of central Europe to uncover deep and dark secrets. I only hope Jack and his friends can make it through to the bitter end – it looks like it’s going to be a difficult journey! ( )
