Seriously, this is for your own good.
Check out Kendra C. Highley’s Matt Archer: Monster Hunter series. Or else.
Or else what, you ask? Or else you are going to be totally outgeeked. Because this guy is going to be huge. Matt Archer is going to kick Harry Potter’s self-pitying emo ass! I am about 15% into the second book, and I have no problems admitting that Kendra Highly is better than I am. Me, with the ego the size of a former Soviet republic, is admitting this.
What’s going to happen is that in a couple of years you’re going to be in Wal-Mart and pass by a big honking display of Matt Archer action figures, and some numbnuts with a scraggly soul patch and food in his teeth is going to be all, “Oh, yes, I was reading Matt Archer before he got his own TV show,” and you’re going to have to just stand there and look at your feet because I told you all about the series and you didn’t listen.
We don’t want that to happen, do we?
It’s a very believable and engaging character in a captivating world. The short version is that our world is under attack from evil creatures from somewhere else. Matt, a seemingly ordinary high school student, is chosen to be one of a handful of humans who is able to fight them.
Okay, I’ll admit, put like that it sounds like Percy Whatshisname or one of those other Hogsworth-wannabes. But what makes it work is Matt’s voice–he is flat out one of the best written characters I have read. You can’t help but like the guy, and you can’t help but believe him, and that draws you into the world.
