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...

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.

This is a great series. I don't know how Correia manages to write so prolifically or so well, but he does. The narrator is fantastic. I wish them both the best.
this series for me as taken on a newer and more adventurous dynamic focusing on other characters and experiences not surrounding the main character Owen but supporting him and creating layers in plot characterization giving more dept to both the good guys and the enemy, that sometimes shows up in situation within and without the monster hunters group. I think there was a lot more magic involved in this books than the others combine; but not to the degree that you lost the Ex SEAL gunman walking around with doomsday arsenals, the physical rough a tousle of men being men.
Avid reader and author of fantasy novels.
This series is amazing! Best if you read the first three books first so you dont miss any of the essential back story. The story of "Z" is amazing. I hope this is not the final installment as I truly enjoy these stories. I would recommend this series to anyone who enjoys action with some fantasy elements. These are well written and have the right amount of realism and fantasy to make a fun and exicting listen. The narrator is amazing! The voices given to the characters have become the only way I can imagine these characters. This is a fun read!
Lots of good old fashion violence and explosions.
When getting one of the Monster Hunter books you know it's not Shakespeare, what is is though is great fun and wonderful battles from start to end.
I wish the books were longer but can't wait for the next one to come out.
Absolutely! Gotta have something to do while I wait for the next installment!
He has a great voice and lots of range. His characters are all distinctive and he never falters.
that would be telling!! But it involved Edward and Owen.
This whole series ROCKS!!! If you are looking for something supernatural, violent and humorous, look no further!
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.
