Monster Hunter Legion takes up where Alpha left off and takes the entire Monster Hunter Universe to a whole new level by expanding and adding personalities to what it means to be a monster hunter.
Correia kept his focus where it belongs, on the perspective of his first hero, Owen Pitt.
However, and as always, the most outstanding supporting character in all of Correia's books are the toys and firearms he uses to wreak mayhem on monsters everywhere.
I can't wait to see where he takes MHI next.
Julie covering Owen when he was trying to get to the top of the Last dragon.
Can't pick one.
Monster Hunter...Just livin' the dream
When does the next one come out?
Yes, it's just a blast, no pun intended. If you like paranormal stories, I think most will find the MHI stories a really fun escape. No's 1 & 2 in the series are still my favorites, but really liked #4.
Z/Owen, for his self-effacing humor; Holly, for facing her fears and "take no Sh_t attitude"; Mosh/David, for stepping-up-to-the-plate when needed by his brother.
Oliver Wyman he is great! I will always associate him with MHI.
Yes, chapter one had me LOL hysterically…I don’t think I’ll ever be able to go past a buffet and/or an ice swan scupture w/o cracking-up and thinking of "MHI Legion".
Yes its fast and fun.
When Owen meets Management
He does them all very well. I couldnt pick a favorite. He even gets Skippy right
The whole series is great. I hope he can keep these up!!!
I recommend it, it is a really good book and I never want to stop listening to do anything else.
Older, crankier, happier and still a bibliophile!
Exciting, fun, BOOM!
Somewhat reminiscent of David Eddings series (mix of other worldliness, character development, action, and fun... but Correia takes the concepts and takes them to the next levels. His characters are smarter, less predictable, and grow throughout the story. Enough connection in the story thread to be meaningful and comforting, but never stale or redundant.
I have never listened to O. Wyman before listening to this series. THAT IS GOING TO CHANGE.
This book and the 3 proceeding... In fact, except for this one I have listened to all of them more than once.
Wow! Boom! Gasp! Cringe! Guffaw!
Audiobooks are great tool in dealing with my ADHD. They limit distractions while listening and I don't have to sit still. PS. I can't spell
More Monsters, More Monster Hunters, Bigger Guns, Bigger Explosions and Velvet Elvis, Larry Correia and Oliver Wyman's latest Monster Hunter International collaboration is 16 hours and 35 minutes of adrenaline soaked action. Owen, Earl, Julie, Trip, Holly, Milo, Skippy, and Ed head to Vegas for the first ever International convention of monster hunters and Sin City will never be the same.
What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas but the larger than life antics of our favourite characters threaten to overwhelm this folklore maxim. Larry Correia supplies another gripping adventure interlaced with twists, back stories, and just a touch of romance while Oliver Wyman's performance breathes life into the characters and gives the story wings.
Monster Hunter Legion does a great job of tying the three previous ( International, Vendetta, and Alpha) novels together and lays the foundation for even greater adventures. This series just keeps getting better.
My only negative is waiting for the next book in the series.
Oliver Wyman is a very enthusiastic and creative reader. Larry Correia continues his basic premise of hero's vs. villains in another inventive and original scenario.
I think all of the characters are cleverly created and unique, but don't you have to give 2 thumbs up to a stripper turned monster hunter?
This is a simple series of evil vs. good. Its strongest moments are when characters are unconditionally committed to the success of their mission, willing to risk it all, and there are many such situations.
Read the books in order for maximum enjoyment and understanding
If there was a complaint about Mr. Correia's books, then it would be "why can't they be longer and release a bit faster...however, you can't ask for a more enjoyable "kickass" story (series) that just make the miles and time fly by. Keep 'em coming Larry! Can't wait to see what happens with Franks. And "Z" is just AWESOME!!!!
I loved everything. OZP, Julie, everyone is back in one way or another (if your following the series) The Monsters, the Magic, the weapons of mass destruction, and yet it ain't over.
The closest thing is "Army of Darkness" but it really does not compare. This is so different and edgier.
Owen Z. Pitt, his Brother Mosh, and Earl are just a few of my favorites.
I would have but I did have to sleep.....LOL.
I am so hungry for the next book in this series, and I hope we won't have to wait foo long. Larry Correia's other series "Hard Magic" is also really good and still waiting for book three on that one. I'm totally hooked on Larry Correia. BTW on the "Hard Magic" series Bronson Pinchot does the narration and he is totally AWESOME. He narrates "Presidents Vampire" series which is really excellent.
