great story as always. A little boring at the beginning and throughout the middle. Has some of the longest run on sentences in history. But pack the wall above a punch for the climax and conclusion of the story. It was worth waiting for. Love the narrators voices. Can't wait for the next story.

I’m a big fan of the Monster Hunter books. I was hooked when I stumbled upon book one, Monster Hunter International, and haven’t looked back since. I knew what to expect: Big guys with big guns shooting at big monsters. Sold.
Being that this is the fourth book in the Monster Hunter series, I’m going to assume you know what to expect. If you’re knew to the series: You know those action movies you watch just so you can see explosions, hand-to-hand fights, and gun battles? This series is kind of like that. There is more to them of course, Correia is a very good writer, but the battles with giant ancient gods and the ferocious skirmishes between werewolves and vampires is what really keeps me coming back.
Owen “Z” Pitt and the rest of MHI are in Las Vegas for the first ever Monster Hunter Convention, along with hunters from around the world. It was supposed to be a time to compare notes with other hunters from other countries. Of course, considering the profession they’ve chosen, things don’t go according to plan. The hunters find themselves quarantined in the Last Dragon Hotel & Casino battling horrors from their past, and trying to keep the civilians from being sacrificed for nefarious purposes by Mr. Stricken. Owen’s father-in-law, Ray Shackleford, gives him news that will change his life forever. All the while he finds himself face to face with a being thought extinct and the rest of the hunters from around the world battle a creature of nightmarish proportions and otherworldly power.
I keep coming back to these books; they’re action-packed, well written, and full of mythological and fantastic creatures. With the narration done by Oliver Wyman, which is always great, I’ll continue to come back. Wyman is a favorite of mine and always delivers a solid performance. He brings the words to life with distinct voices, enthusiastic delivery, and stellar production quality.

Yet Again Correia makes monster hunting fun amd hilarious. This series harken back to the golden age of Action Movies with Stallone, Seagal and Schwarzenegger. I can't recommend these books more, the narration is great and his style fits the series PERFECTLY! Best Moment, using a stolen chicken to work some voodoo on the helicopter so everyone doesn't die (you did not read that wrong... and that's why i love these books)
Except for some audio mismatches and glitches in the recording, Larry and Oliver deliver another solid downpayment on the franchise. It'll be interesting to see how many side trips with the STFU team (Heather) we get to make before Z runs out of time...
Great story and great narration! Didn't want to stop once I started listening.. New characters into the series bring a lot of freshness plus thrill. Wonder how the final battle with the biggest foe of all will go down :-) Gotta start the next book ASAP!
i loove great books especially mystery and suspense and gregg hurwitz
If first-line begin reading this book series I didn't think I would get this far and loving it now I can't get enough i'm now buying the books without my credits so that I know what happens LOL very well written
I'm a big fan of si-fi, but I'm finding that a love for mysteries budding up in me. I also like a lot of nonfiction.
If you have read any of the Monster Hunter books form Correia, then you should know that they are all for the gun lovers. Trying to gun down actual nightmares? Not so easy. This book (as are all the rest of the Monster Hunter series) is nonstop action. I couldn't stop it until it was done.
