Format: PDF / Kindle (mobi) / ePub
At fourteen, Nick Gautier thinks he knows everything about the world around him. Streetwise, tough, and savvy, his quick sarcasm is the stuff of legends. . .until the night when his best friends try to kill him. Saved by a mysterious warrior who has more fighting skills than Chuck Norris, the teenaged Nick is sucked into the realm of the Dark-Hunters: immortal vampire slayers who risk everything to save humanity.
Nick quickly learns that the human world is only a veil for a much larger and more dangerous one: a world where the captain of the football team is a werewolf and the girl he has a crush on goes out at night to stake the undead.

As if starting high school isn't hard enough. . .now Nick has to hide his new friends from his mom, his chain saw from the principal, and keep the zombies and the demon Simi from eating his brains, all without getting grounded or suspended. How in the world is he supposed to do that?

does. You and I have gone round many a day. I’m the reason you keep thinking you’ve had alien abductions.” Nick laughed. “I knew there was a reason I always liked you. ” Caleb leaned forward, between Nick and Ambrose, then said in a low tone, “By the way, boss … you’re not as covert as you think, and I’ve heard everything you told the kid in the car.” He looked straight at Ambrose. “Nice coat, but I prefer the black suit you had on the last time we met.” Ambrose made a Vader move that made it

He pushed himself up, but the demons hit him again and again across his back. This time, they stabbed him with their talons repeatedly until the pain overwhelmed him. Don’t pass out. Don’t you dare. But it was too late. His sight was already dimming. The last thing he saw was Bubba’s SUV bursting into flames and exploding. Then everything went black.
Holding his breath, Nick waited for the sound that would end his life. Out of the darkness, a blur rushed in at the same instant Alan fired the gun. One moment, Tyree, Alan, and Mike were laughing at his pain while they insulted him. In the next, they were flying through the air and hitting the ground near him hard enough to break bones.
