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, defecting 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! Greg Taylor delivers a tale of horror and humor that even reluctant readers will love.

"I love the idea of a pizza joint being a front for fighting monsters! I love the names of the pizzas, and I love the banter between the three friends and the co-workers. THE SLICE includes lots of action, danger, and suspense. It's a winner!” --Teensreadtoo.com “Readers new to the series can jump right in to this follow-up, which opens with a battle scene and leans heavily on action.” --SLJ Praise for Greg Taylor and Killer Pizza: “A monster is roaming the nights 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 “Taylor keeps the action coming at a brisk pace…a fun diversion.”—Publishers Weekly “A delectable choice for horror fans as well as reluctant readers.”—School Library Journal “This much-needed book definitely fills a gap in horror stories for young readers left by the end of the Goosebumps series.”—VOYA
