4.5 stars for this debut novel that highlights kids battling monsters only they can see. Celia is home alone for the weekend and an earthquake hits her town taking out the electricity and isolating their community from the outside world. She is just thirteen and alone. As she ventures out of her apartment she finds herself drawn into a world where monsters are very real, they keep kids (Littles) as slaves and use them to add more kids to their team. The hunters are regular kids who train to take on those monsters. A prophesy seems to indicate that Celia will play a key role in the outcome of the current crisis. She does not know who to trust or what to expect. Kids reading this book will find themselves contemplating the monsters in their lives and how to keep from becoming one.

Fans of Percy Jackson will like this series as the monsters are vividly described and quirky at times. One has a pizza box for a heart and is made of dumpster trash. I must deduct a star for making a unicorn into a monster. This is not cool.

Great action-packed adventure and suspense for middle grade readers (and their parents)! From its very first pages, this debut from the wonderful Katherine Sparrow draws you in with the perfect mix of adventure, humor, and charm. The heart of this story is Celia—a hero you won’t soon forget. She’s a strong, dynamic lead left to rely on her own wits and daring after an earthquake leaves her stranded without her parents in a world turned upside down and starting to look a little bit monstrous. Join Celia and her curious companion Demetri for this supernatural page-turner – highly recommended!
