The Cypher - Julian Rosado-Machain
The Cypher is the first novel in the Guardians Incorporated series. This book is free for the kindle. Thomas Byrne just moved in with his Grandpa Morgan in Carlsbad California. Thomas' parents disappeared, along with their whole ship, while on a cruise. Thomas' Grandpa was his closest relative. What Thomas and Morgan didn't know is that they were special. Guardians Incorporated has been around for thousands of years, using one name or another. When Thomas and his grandpa can successfully read a job ad that the Guardians place in the paper, they're recruited. Fighting monsters and trying to save the world wasn't in their initial job description, but it eventually becomes part of the deal. This is a young adult book, but still interesting. There's lots of action, and an extra bonus if you're a Lovecraft fan. Highly recommended.
