Welcome to the nightmare . . .

There is a world you don't know about, inhabited by supernatural creatures of darkness—vampires, werewolves, and all manner of savage, impossible beasts that live for terror and slaughter and blood. They are all around us but you cannot see them, for knowledge of their presence—so close and so hungry—would surely drive any ordinary human insane.

But for centuries a special breed of hunter has kept the monsters at bay, preventing them from breaking through the increasingly fragile barriers protecting our mortal realm.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from A so-so debut The idea isn't new - normal guy gets drafted in to secret society of monster hunters, and finds himself in a world he never knew existed. His sensei is the traditional attractive but all-business woman with a past. The monsters are never quite what they seem. And the author never quite manages to do anything different with the premise - he even commits the cardinal sin; men and women can't be professional partners or friends without hormones getting in the way. Maybe once he gets another book or two under his belt it might turn better, but I was underwhelmed, despite a promising start.
