So i read the first book and unless i missed it, i don't understand what the point or plot of the series is. Is it just hunting down monsters?

The point of it was to be made into an awesome series of video games. :D

I've installed and am about to start #3, having heard only good things.

The first book is a series of short stories with the same main characters. I guess you didn't know that.

I'm not sure there is a point to any of the stories. The plot seems to be to kill monsters.

I've read the first book as well. It's just a fun ride. Not meant to be taken as literary genius. It got popular enough to become a low budget TV show in Poland which the people behind CD Projekt RED grew up with. They turned it into a video game to establish themselves as a Polish studio.
