Geek, Gamer who hates wasting credits.
If you are a fan of the whole MHI world then you already have this book so stop reading.
If you have not read Monster Hunter International, then don’t start here. Start with 1st book then if you become a fan like me you will buy this book. Now talking to other fans to me this is the weakest of the book so far.
Its not the worst but not my favorite. Dont get me wrong its a GREAT book and the series is one of my favorites but this book just wasnt as good as MHI(book 1) and monster hunter vendetta (book 2) something felt missing... I couldn't put a finger on it. Nonetheless i would recommend it over and over again.
z. (Owen) Owen is everything and more i look for in a character. Average (in a not so average way. If you know what i mean) Funny, sarcastic, and just a plain badass.
He's a good reader. When i listen to him he hooks me into the books and doesn't let me go until the book is finished (and then im left wanting more) he knows how to read for owen better then my own imagination. he captures this series better than anyone else could. Dont change the reader. Or ill just buy the real book from powells
No tears were shed for this book. But oh god did i laugh. That fight scene in the hotel/casino (I think it was also a casino) was hilarious. And as always anything involving owen and franks gives me a hearty chuckle.
Yes, what a great series. It just got better with every book. I want more.
Action builds from the first chapter in book one and never lets you relax. Always something going on that makes you want to keep listening. I was dreading coming to the end of this story because I didn't want it to end.
Great character voices, perfect continuation from book to book. At this point it simply wouldn't be MHI without Oliver Wyman reading it. Please pay him whatever it takes for him to keep reading this series. He is priceless!!
MHI, You don't want to know what you don't know.
Now that I've reached the end of this book I must sadly stop thinking about this series at least until the next book comes out, or I'll go nuts waiting. Thank you Larry for the great series. Yes it has lots of shooting and is simple good vs evil but the strength of the characters and the complex dilemmas they face keeps you enthralled....and besides, deep down we all like stories where evil gets its butt royally kicked.
Riveting, Action, Monsters.
Too many and I am not going to give any spoilers.
I have listened to the entire Monster Hunters International series and Oliver has done a great job bringing the characters to life. It seems that with every book in the series he is more comfortable with the characters and really makes you visualize them as full and complete people. He really brings out the humor and horror of Larry's writing.
The latest riveting story in one of the greatest epic action series of all time.
I don't write many reviews but I feel it would be a travesty if I didn't give accolades to this book. Larry has created a great series with the Monster Hunters International books. The first book in the series took of running with a new look at monsters and how they are kept in check by the hunters of the world. Each book has added many new layers to the MHI team. This book is, again, adding so much more to this series with a well spun web of deceit, action, drama, humor and just flat out one heck of a ride. Oliver does an amazing job as well bringing these characters to life. Larry and Oliver make the most entertaining 16+ hours of listening pleasure that you could possibly have. I can't wait until the next book in the MHI series comes out.
I am a costume designer who listens to books at work. Isn't that a great job?! Discovered the concept way back when it was "books on tape", then cd, and now my iphone. the only down side is that I get upset when actors interupt my stories! Oops!
In the top five with the Grimnoir, Dresden files, President's Vampire, and Iron Druid. Hmmmm, seeing a theme emerging. Oh, and Cabin Pressure for comic relief.
The voices are perfect. Distinctive and fit the personalities.
Yes. I was listening at work and got way too grouchy when people interupted me. Oops.
Can't wait for book 5! Every time a new book comes out, I revisit the whole series in order. What a treat!
I have already listened to the series 1-1/2 times. I am a speed listener and sometimes miss pertinent facts when listening the first time through. I love to re-listen several times to the MHI stories because I always pick up something new that enriches the listening experience.
This is the the second time that I have read a book that is centered around a military theme. The first was the Alera series by Jim Butcher. Both authors handle the military themes in detail, but in such a way as to make their stories interesting to me. It also helps that there are romances in both series. I must say that the Alera series is probably my favorite audio experience ever, so comparing MH Legion to that series is high praise from me!
I LOVE the way Mr. Wyman does the deep scary voices. He handles alien accents, both friendly and enemy very well. He also handles non-American accents well (at least as far as I am concerned). He also changes the tempo of his reading when appropriate. A beautiful performance!
Yes - I didn't realize it was out until late last week, so I purchased it immediately, but held off reading it until 5 pm Friday, when I left work. What a great way to spend my weekend!
I look forward to the next book. For those of you thinking about starting this series, please do - it is well worth your time and money.
Up in the top 5 series
Oliver Wyman is perfect for this book. This is an outstanding performance.
I absolutely love this entire series, and the way that Larry Correia writes it. This latest addition is no exception, and is everything I had hoped for as an addition to the series.
Freezing in Idaho
I stumbled on this series, and was hooked in the first 15 minutes. Each story is original, and this was no exception. In fact this book is better than the previous books. Is that possible? If you like Harry Dresden, you'll like this series. The two series cover completely different material, but the underlying sense of humor and the original plots are common characteristics. And Zee and Harry are both tall and capable.
The downside of discovering a fresh and new book that becomes a series is the waiting! It's like waiting for Christmas when you were 5 years old. Wait, is that a bad thing?
I would have to say this book ranks in my top fifteen books I have listened to on Audible.
It followed along with the story so far and combined the characters from Monster Hunter Alpha into the plot.
He brings the characters to life and puts the right inflection on the dialogue that may have been missed when reading.
Most of Larry's Books I want to listen to in one sitting, but I have to eat, work, sleep, and shower. His books are very enthralling.
100% testosterone. So unbelievable and yet that is what makes this series so good. Ready for the next one. The narration is perfect for the attitude of the book. Very entertaining.
