Here is an especially horror filled series of books that will leave you shivering and hungry.
Killer Pizza (Killer Pizza #1)
Pizza you’ll die for!
Toby McGill dreams of becoming a world-famous chef, but up until now, his only experience has been watching the Food Network. When Toby lands a summer job at Killer Pizza, where pies like The Monstrosity and The Frankensausage are on the menu, things seem perfect. His coworkers, Annabel and Strobe, are cool, and Toby loves being part of a team. But none of them are prepared for what’s really going on at Killer Pizza: It’s a front for a monster-hunting organization!
Learning to cook pizzas is one thing, but killing hideously terrifying monsters? That’s a whole other story. Still, if Toby quits Killer Pizza, will monsters take over his town?
The whole idea of a pizza place being the cover for a monster hunting organization is genius. I mean, who would expect that? And it’s a pretty good way to pay for all the equipment.
The coolest thing about this book is that the monster isn’t the kind of monster you’re used to. It’s not a vampire or a zombie. But original monsters you’ve never heard of. And they are terrifying. The monsters in the first book are werewolf-like creatures but with no hair, are over eight feet tall and indestructible. Extremely terrifying.
“A monster is roaming the night in Hidden Hills, Ohio. But why worry about monsters when you can sink your teeth into a Killer Pizza? Greg Taylor serves up a hot slice of horror that I couldn’t put down!” – R.L. Stine
The Slice (Killer Pizza #2)
Four months after they discover that their new place of employment, Killer Pizza, was a front for an underground Monster Hunting Organization, Toby and his fellow rookie Monster Combat Officers, Annabel and Strobe, have been invited to New York City to tour KP Headquarters. But the exclusive tour is cut short when a monster emergency sends the trio off on a secret mission delivering Calanthe, a beautiful 14-year-old, a monster with serpent-like abilities, into the Monster Protection Program. It seems like an easy assignment until the teens realize Calanthe is the sacrificial offering in a ceremony set to happen in a few days and her people will stop at nothing to get her back!
Not much to say about this book except that I enjoyed this book just as much as the last one. Calanthe’s monster abilities made her an interesting character.

Vampire Stakes (Killer Pizza #3)
When Toby McGill, now a veteran of Killer Pizza’s underground Monster Hunting Organization, makes the chilling discovery that vampires have invaded the small town of Raven’s Run, he and his fellow Monster Combat Officers, Annabel and Strobe, have no time to lose. They must defeat the undead creatures before their numbers spread. But in this action packed third Killer Pizza adventure, the KP teens find themselves up against a supernatural enemy far more dangerous than any they have faced so far.
The challenges — including a midnight battle in an unearthly cemetery, a creepy, abandoned mansion and a beautiful but very lethal young vampire — are many. Can the MCOs prevail? Or will their perilous mission prove to be their last? Anything is possible in the deadly monster universe of Killer Pizza!
It wasn’t easy to get my hands on this story because it doesn’t exist in physical book form. I had to buy it on iTunes as an eBook for $7.99 and read it on my computer. I don’t enjoy reading books like this. I’ll read fanfiction online, but I don’t enjoy reading whole books on a screen because I like to read books on paper. But I wanted to know how this story ends. I hope all of you out there appreciate all the work I put into making this blog great.
The great thing about this book is that it gives me the chance to talk about vampires. Luckily the vampires in this book are nothing like the vampires in the Twilight books. The Twilight vampires are the worse vampires ever and the whole book series is awful. I tried reading the first book back in high school and I couldn’t do it. They are just horrible.
If you like stories about high school teens fighting monsters, check out the Nickelodeon show The Troop. The Troop is a live action television show about a trio of teenagers who fight and capture monsters and other supernatural phenomena that invade they hometown. Episodes are available on iTunes.
