Review of Confessions of a Monster Hunter (Bk 1) by Eric Guindon

What’s it about?

Book Cover for Confessions of a Monster Hunter: Veil of Innocence

Am I the Avenging Hand of Korandos? F**cked if I know.What I do know is that I’m not like the rest of you. Not anymore.You’re helpless before the monsters that secretly rule our world, but I’m not.You might not know it, but I’m doing all I can to keep you from being just a pawn, or a meal, to these creatures.

These memoirs are my confessions, my diary. I’m not proud of everything I’ve done, or of all the decisions I’ve had to make, but I stand by them; nothing in here is sugarcoated. – Goodreads Synopsis of Confessions of a Monster Hunter: bk 1


My Review of Confessions of a Monster Hunter: The Veil of Innocence

At a 116 pages, this was a perfect little novella to read at 2 a.m. The main character, Hunter Black, is snarky and more than willing to admit that he was a bit naive when things got started for him. He comes off as a very believable hero in training. Must admit, though, I spent a good portion of my time going “Oh, c’mon! Seriously?! You idiot!” That, though, is not necessarily a bad thing because it means it had sucked me in.

Confessions of a Monster Hunter: The Veil of Innocence was definitely entertaining enough that I downloaded the next book in the series to read whenever I get a free moment. I’ve never read the Dresden files, but from what I’ve heard of them, I could see people making a comparison here.

My favorite character was definitely word-man.  The way Guindon describes him, I was able to perfectly visualize him, and somehow he fit into the story even though most of the other monsters described were decidedly run-of-the-mill fantasy creatures.

I wouldn’t say I highly recommend this novella, but it was certainly a fun read.
