Percy Jackson meets Dracula in this action-packed monster hunting series! With the perfect combination of humour and heroism, Max Helsing will keep readers aged nine and up on the edge of their seats.
Max Helsing's camping trip to Bone Creek was never going to be a quiet holiday, but even he is caught by surprise at how quickly things get out of control.
Trouble starts brewing when a slew of mysterious murders have Bigfoot hunters lining up, guns at the ready. What's more, Max's nemesis, Abel Archer, is in town and itching to be the one to take the beast down.
But the appearance of dire wolves and vampires complicate matters - who is really responsible for the murders? With the help of his friends, it's up to Max to find the culprit before the wrong suspect ends up as a trophy on a monster hunter's wall!
