Seventeen-year-old Maggie Cunningham is tough, smart, and sassy. She's also not like other girls her age, but then, who would be when the family business is monster hunting? Combat boots, ratty hooded sweatshirts, and hair worn short so nothing with claws can get a grip, Maggie's concerns in life slant more toward survival than fashion or boys. Which presents a problem when Maggie's mother informs Maggie that she can't get her journeyman's license for hunting until she loses her virginity.Something about virgin blood turning vampires into pointy rage monsters. Blood and gore and insides being on the outside and all that. Maggie's battled ghosts and goblins and her fair share of house brownies, but finding herself a boy - fitting in with her peers - proves a much more daunting task than any monster hunt. Did you know normal girls don't stuff their bras with holy water balloons? Nor do they carry wooden stakes in their waistbands. And they care about things like "matching" and "footwear." Of course, they also can't clean a gun blindfolded, shoot a crossbow, or exorcise ghosts from a house. Which means they're lame and Maggie's not. Because Maggie's awesome. The Awesome, in fact. Just ask her. She'd be more than happy to tell you. After she finds herself a date.

In the first in what I believe will be a series, Eva Darrows introduces the reader to the world of Monster Hunting and nothing said you had to be an adult to do it: Maggie Cunningham has a different type of upbringing than most people in her life, her mother is a Monster Hunter and Maggie is determ...
The Awesome was pretty damn awesome! Maggie comes from a family of monster hunters and must have "The Sex" before she can continue to the next level and become a journeyman hunter because virgins blood and all....Fun and snarky and laugh out loud great!Thanks BJ for the recommendation.
Maggie is a hunter’s apprentice – following in her mother’s footsteps to take down all the creepy monsters that lurk in the world (including gross ghosts and sidhe which may or may not have eaten an eyeball) But she can’t be more than an apprentice yet because she is still a virgin. Virgin blood d...
Actual rating 2.5 stars.I received a copy from Netgalley.An amusing YA urban fantasy. Maggie is possibly one of the most crass foul mouthed teens I have come across in a long time. Its fun and so refreshing, and while most of this book did make me grin and smirk, the attitude did get a little irrita...
