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...
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!
Teacher and family man.
After a story about Earl Harbinger, this book shifts the attention back to Owen Pitt. The monster hunter convention in Las Vegas is a pretty fun idea, which spawns alliances and animosity alike. While told primarily from Owen's POV, Mosh plays a significant role in this story and has chapters to himself.
While again an exciting story from Correia, this is not quite as good as books 1 or 2. However, it is certainly an entertaining read/listen.
Oliver Wyman delivered another strong performance as the narrator. Though it took a few books to become accustomed to his style, particularly the exaggerated slow reading of the final words of a chapter, his ability to provide distinct voices and speech patterns for each character continues to allow listeners to fall into the story, feeling it unfold around them.
