Grab your stakes and your rock salt. Monster hunting class is in session.

Liam Hunter has warded off hungry vampires, slayed monstrous beasts, and put agonized spirits to rest since he could hold a stake. When trouble comes through the Hunterland message board, alerting them that nurses are dying at high schools across Wisconsin in a string of fishy “suicides,” the Hunter family hits the road to save the day.

The trail leads to Falkville Falls, where Liam clashes with Olivia Davis, whose maddening family seems inexplicably embroiled in this haunting mess. Olivia has always mothered her little sister, Pepper. But when the Hunter family opens her eyes to the hidden underworld of real monsters prowling the dark, she realizes she can’t protect Pepper from this newest threat by herself. Can the two families work together to uncover who or what is responsible before the next murder, or will this vicious death cycle have no end?

With only their father to care for them, Olivia Davis has always mothered her little sister, Pepper. But when the Hunter family opens her eyes to the hidden underworld of real monsters lurking in the dark, she realizes she can’t protect Pepper from this newest threat alone. She’ll have to join forces with the wayward boy who irritates her the most to take down a monster that’s too close to home. That’s if her own family doesn’t stand in her way.

I loved the writing, the story flowed nicely and I didn't find my eyes skipping sections like they are prone to do with some books. Dana is a new to me author, but I promise you that Hunterland is worth the read, and this will not be the only book of her's that I read.

Olivia, Liam, Jac, and Pepper made the story and I can't wait to read the next book.
After reading the synopsis I was hooked, and then once I got into the book I noticed some Supernatural vibes, however, this book is not just a knockoff of Supernatural. The Hunter's are a family of, you guessed it, hunters. Agent Hunter is their father, Jac is the young daughter and of course, bad boy type Liam. The Davis family consists of dad Sherriff Mat Davis, Olivia (oldest), and "Pepper". The family dynamic is fantastic and the Davis and Hunter families seem to mesh exceptionally well after a few rough starts. 
Some things could be explained better, but I am hoping there is a next book that will wrap up those questions.
The characters themselves were great to read, and all the back-and-forth banter was great and made me feel like I was right there with them. There is a slow-burn romance in this book, but it isn't anything cringy and I actually found it all kind of adorable.
