Hell comes home to Jersey.
Seven ancient demons known as the Fallen have awakened in New Jersey after a hundred years. Fortunately for Mike and Ann, so has the one man who can stop them, Joseph Miller. Trapped in a hospital filled with mythical monsters, only together can they unravel the mystery of the Cursed and escape with not only their lives but their very humanity.

Ancient Awakening is a Horror/Action novel with just the right touch of comedy. It is the first book in the series "The Ancient" which follows the adventures of eccentric demon hunter Joseph Miller. His job is to defend the human race against seven mythical demons and their offspring. Unfortunately for us, he has been dead for the last hundred years. Ancient Awakening will be followed by Ancient Enemies in 2010 and Ancient Revelations in 2011 and is written by Matthew Bryan Laube.

The second edition of Ancient Awakening is re-edited, re-cut, and re-"vamped" for maximum monster hunter action.

Non-stop action and excitement as an old enemy of humanity is in the here and now! Will they succeed? You'll have to read the first book of the series and you'll enjoy every word of this thriller. Great first book, can't wait for the next one. Be prepared to read all night, you won't want to put it down.

Mr Laube did an excellent job in writing this book. I put him up there at the top, with authors like Anne Rice and the S. King. The way he wrote this story goes from one scene to another, Mr. Laube has managed to master this technique without any flaws. I bought the first one a while back and decided to read it about a week ago, I have already bought the second and finished reading it, I can't wait till September when the third comes out. I believe that if you are a lover of the Unnatural then you will totally love this novel.

I really enjoyed this series. Action packed, yet Miller brings the exact level of humor needed and as the other characters are still more serious the story comes together nicely. Before this book I did not know the author, but I would read more of their work.

The beginning jumped from character to character a bit too much but if you hang in there it is pretty enjoyable. It was definitely a book that was hard to put down and couldn't wait to read the next one!

Not the best ever read, but it was okay. Didn't really care for the ending, and don't plan to read the nextin the series.

Not highly recommended but it was an okay read and it went fast. The plot had real promise but it's one of those stories that tries to combine multiple legends and myths and doesn't quite pull it off as well as I the writer was hoping for. Not bad enough to keep me away from the writer, but not good enough to make me look for more.

I love books with demons, vamps, werewolves, and other scary creatures that come creeping and oozing out of the dark to strike fear and mayhem on us innocent, puny humans. You get a whole bunch of that when these monsters take over a hospital and start eating or turning people. It appears the deadly ancient ones, seven monsters of legend, are back to do what they do best. A young lady seeking her absent boyfriend lands right in the middle of this mess. Along with an injured cop, and a strange little man who happens to be “THE” master monster hunter. The author wastes no time stirring up trouble for these characters and keeps monsters and humans busy: running, dying, the usual stuff. I did like the creatures, the human characters, and the plot. But it felt a bit rushed at times, and the story didn’t always flow smoothly. And I wanted to know more about the monster hunter and the young woman’s connection with monsters. I suspect that’s the authors plan as I learned at the ending, which was an ending and a cliff hanger, that there’s more to come in this tale. While this first book didn’t completely wow me, it certainly showed promise and I will be reading the next book. You see, the author has me very curious about one particular monster. I have a feeling I’ll be getting some of the answers I seek and plenty more action.
