Book Blitz: Matt Archer Bloodlines by Kendra C Highley(Matt Archer #4)

When seventeen-year-old Matt Archer set out on his last mission in the Australian Outback, he thought it would be like every other hunt.

Not even close.

After only two days on the ground, his best friend is possessed, a long-lost family member has returned and hidden truths have come to the surface. Add in a coven of witches bent on bringing about the end of the world and, well, this trip has started to suck. Badly.

As his power and strength continue to grow, so does Matt’s concern that he’s becoming more and more like the creatures he’s been charged to hunt: a monster.

Faced with some of his biggest challenges to date, Matt has to decide what he needs to protect most—his family, his team…or himself.

My Review:
*I received a free copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review*

A coven of witches are suspected as being responsible for calling all the deadly monsters that Matt and the team continue to face as they move operations to Australia for the next battle. A new member to the team has an effect on Matt while Will has to face a challenge of his own.

These books continue to be really exciting as we enter the fourth adventure. The eclipses are becoming more dangerous each time with multiple monsters appearing and the battle of Oz is the most deadly yet. The scene also switches back to where it all began in Montana which was nice as well. As for the monsters we had the dingoes, super intelligent bears and the creature I would fear most in the world...big ass spiders! Yes being an arachnophobe, I was hoping these guys would show up at some point so Matt could kill some of the creepy gits!

Ha Ha! I was right! Matt's Dad is the CIA man sent to join this mission! I just knew that he was going to feature at some point-and I liked him. He was cool and deadly just like James Bond! Erik's mixed welcome from his wife and kids, and open hostility from Mike were nicely played out in this book. I also had suspicions about the role that Mamie was going to be playing in this series as I caught a few hints that the author left about her-see where she comments on Matt and Ella's relationship and you'll see the hint. She always seemed able to find out things much easier than Julie which showed intuition but I always wondered if there was a bit more to it. These two additions to the story were very interesting as was the section with the super intelligent bears. It was quite a touching scene actually and I felt as bad as Matt did about what he had to do.

Again the plot switches between Matt the monster killer and Matt with his family struggles and that is what makes these books so enjoyable to read. The author drops you right into this family and everything they have to face so it is impossible not to care about them all. It is the same with the Green Berets. With the danger they face and without them all having a magic knife, you know there will be casualties but you just hope it isn't your favourite that gets hurt. I was very upset at the tragedy in this book. Damn you author!!!

The big thing in this book was the big cliffhanger at the end. It was great! It left you thinking 'what the hell do they do now??? What does this mean for the next book? Do they all go rogue, which would be really amazing? Oh I hope so! I hope we don't have a lot of stuff about them going before committee's to explain themselves!

I cannot wait for the grand finale to this series!
