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.
Oliver Wyman does such excellent work bringing the story to life, that I always enjoy the audible version after reading the book. I don't read Mr. Correia for self improvement but for pure enjoyment and he has never failed to deliver. You really should read the first three before reading Legion to get the most from the story. Characters are developed, some answers are revealed and many more questions are raised, leaving the listener/reader anxious for the next performance/story.
You can count on Monster Hunter or the Grimnoir story for hours of entertainment. Again, Mr. Correia just leaves one anxious for the next installment.
If you liked the other three books of the series you will like this one.
Monster Hunter Legion is a fun filled story, that follows the same pace and fun of the other novels in this series. If you are new to the series, the author does a reasonable job at bringing new readers up to speed, without too much rehashing that leaves other fans bored.The action and characters move at a good pace. This is not a heady, overly thought provoking sci-fi novel. It's not an idiotic slaughter fest either. It fits somewhere in between, focusing more on the relationships between various characters and the consequences of their actions or inactions.
If you enjoyed the other novels and want more of the same, this is the book for you. The book introduces some of the 'species' and monster types that have been alluded to in other books of the series as well as some new monsters. I especially love the unconventional roles the monsters play in this book. Correia likes to twist roles from antagonist to protagonist, switching your emotions from hate to love to pity throughout the story.
For those who are familiar with the series, this book's overall theme seemed to be that of forgiveness. It explored many of the relationships in the other books, and how one must forgive one's self for their own actions, forgive others for their actions against us, etc. There were some loose ends in the story I wish were tied up better or rather I hope are tied up better in the next book. I am going to mention a name, maybe the author will see this, maybe he will not...Jason Lacoco, and how he is part of the story. I hope we continue to see more of him. I tried to say that without spoiling the story. Anyways, great story, lots of fun, I highly recommend it.
Say something about yourself!
To me I love audiobooks and Oliver Wyman does a great job yet again. Every character has their own voice and I can tell one person from the other, instead of every character sounding like me. So I'd consider the audio version to be better...
I would have to say Earl would be my favorite character, cuz that guy don't take no crap from no one...
That guy can't do no wrong in when he reads a book, he has a great voice. He gives each character their own voice and it makes things very easy to follow the story.
I almost did, I listen to most of it in one day. The only reason why I stretched it out is so I wont be bored at work the next day. But I can definitely listen to this book in one sitting.
Great book, I recommend this book and every other Larry Correia book to anyone who likes action, guns and just plain great story telling...
The plot twist that were all through the book!
To the first book in the MHI series. I can't wait for the next one to come out!
When the Hotel they were at disapered into that other dimension.
Monsters are real!
I highly recommend the series, it is unique. Definitely well thought out
I'm a fan of fantasy both epic and contemporary, I cant get enough of it!
The Nochmar. He is an epic Villain.
When Edward kills the Alp with a throwing knife.
Everything. He gives a great performance.
When Owen leaves Jason Lococo to the demons.
This book just didn't do it for me. I thought the plot line of this one was a little weak to be honest. I have liked every other book in the series and the grimnoir chronicles is an amazing series, but I just could not wait for this book to be over. I feel I have a vested interest in this series, and that is honestly the only reason why I finished. I felt like this was just a filler book to get you to the next part of the series, and really didn't add a lot for me. The action is cool as always, and I like the characters, hence why I gave the book 3 stars. I wish I could say something more than just I was underwhelmed, but that would be the word I use to describe this book.
Nothing like a great book when on the move.
So, there I was, really enjoying this series when the writer insisted on giving me the Fox News bites of the world. Darn it!! I just wanted some shot-it-up-mind-numbing fun in a safe non-drink or think way and the constant Obama-bashing-come-get-my-gun-from-my-rotting-corpse-BS effn killed it. If I have to get the bites, I'm out. Enjoyed the series, and I love a good debate, but the didactic nature of this is a NOGO for me. If that does not deter you, you'll abosolutely love the book. As always the narrator is perfect.
