Easy transition into the second book from MHI. The characters I fell in love with are still kicking some major monster ass and I get to live vicariously through them. Great job Larry and 2 thumbs up again to a wonderful read by Oliver Wyman! Excellent job of voicing characters so well that before they even say a word and they take that breath I know who's coming. (Earl Harbinger) loved it!
Mr. Correa writes great action scenes. I like that his hero isn't suave, but come on. Owen Z. Pitt has the emotional maturity of a 12 year old. Pitt is always spouting his mouth off an doing stupid and impulsive things. That's two stars down.
On the other hand the narration is excellent. The monsters are creative and truly nasty. And Correa manages to keep the tension ratcheted way up. A better than average listen if your tastes include lots of guns and explosives. This isn't up to the quality of his Grimnoir Chronicles story "Hard Luck." Still, it's a fun listen.
Retired from academia and business, I am living in Guatemala. Few public libraries, not much access to books written in English. Audible!!
I love this series!! The goofy references (chia pets, Pokey Mon, etc.) pull me out of myself every time and I laugh, chuckle, snort, chortle and then listen carefully for the next batch. This is far more than a running gag, but is instead a fully realized nearly-real world (except for those pesky zombies, vampires and, oh yeah, government agents!!) that feels both threatening and fun.
This time the evil overlords are back with more menace, a possible mole inside MHI, and Agent Franks hanging out at the compound. Please let me know what it takes to be a monster hunter. I wanna play too!!!
Excellent addition to the first book. Story line carries on nicely from the first one.
Several new monster types added and I can't say much more.
I found this book a lot more comical than the first.
Second book in the series and it just keeps getting better. Action and humor. The author keeps developing the characters and we get to see why the main character has become the man he is today by the relationship he has with his father. I really enjoy this series and will finish the whole series back to back.
I'm a teacher, and it's my policy to NOT give any 100%s for work done by anyone especially me. ( I figure there's always room for improvement.) This series is entertaining, just think about the scene as in an alternate reality. If you're interested about more of my thinking, read my review of "Monster Hunters International". Thank you.
Just plain fun
The interesting part was that the author came up with a nice variety of bad guys and supernatural evil. Least interesting? Kind of predictable.
Not sure if I have.
No, it's too long, but the story was interesting and fun so I wanted to listen to all of it.
What I would call good, solid entertainment. I'll eventually get the next book in the series.
Great plot packed with action, more action and emotional at times. Can't wait for the next book in this series...The whole book is great but the main character can get a little annoying at times when he keeps getting beat up, but hey I understand that their team work is what makes the book complete!! Everyone counts "spoiler alert" and portraying Agent Franks as Frankenstein wow just great!!
Emotional moment when the monster recognizes Julie and didn't kill her because she was the only human who had shown him kindnes!!!!
Everything, he brings the book to life with all the voices performed. I really enjoyed the monster deep voices you can just picture them! If you have a vivid imagination like mine you know what I'm talking about!
I will recommend this book to listeners who enjoy a good action pack and interesting story line not much romance but it's well worth it. Got this book for my husband but I enjoyed it nonetheless!!!!!
I enjoy the Monster hunter books. But be Warned -Apparently The Author is some kind of right wing nut Job. He portrays The Feds(US Government) as Jack Booted Nazi Storm trooper who are Stupid/Corrupt and will do anything up to and including torture of Innocent and the Murder of Innocent people to keep the secret. If this just a minor part of the plot it would be one thing. But it is so prevalent in his writing even as a fictitious/fantasy /paranormal novel it is kind of disturbing.
