Abominable is an Urban Fantasy Web Serial Novel written by Joseph Aldridge.
The book is about Jeremy Ross, whose parents retired from the family business of hunting monsters for unknown reasons. The story starts when Jeremy's uncle, aunt, and cousins drop out of the sky and offer to let him stay with them so they can train him to become a hunter as well. He says yes.
Early on, Jeremy becomes disturbed by his uncle Timothy and cousin Blake's attitudes towards the supernatural and by the fact that he's dealing with things much more powerful than he expected.
New chapters are currently uploaded every Friday.
