    When hunters from around the world gather in Las Vegas for a conference, a creature left over from a World War Two weapons experiment wakes up and goes on a rampage across the desert. A not-so-friendly wager between the rival companies turns into a race to see who can bag the mysterious creature first. Only there is far more to this particular case than meets the eye, and as Hunters fall prey to their worst nightmares, Owen Zastava Pitt and the staff of Monster Hunter International have to stop an ancient god from turning Sin City into a literal hell on earth.

    i liked this one the least of all the MHI series, it was still good don't get me wrong but just didn't like it as much. the term "THE ONE" is beat to death in this series, I'm sure that's why i loved "Monster Hunter Alpha" the most, "the one" wasn't in it and had nothing to do with that story.
    i wouldn't care if they use "THE ONE" shtick but just rephrase it or something would help some.

Someone is harnessing immense supernatural forces to commit a series of grisly murders. Someone has violated the first law of magic: Thou Shalt Not Kill. Tracking that someone takes Harry into the dangerous underbelly of Chicago, from mobsters.

    Story

    i will start off by saying "The Dresden Files" is one of my all time favorite series. having said that, I almost never gave the series a real chance because of this book. this is by far the weakest book in the series, can definitely tell this is the writer's first book.

    years ago i was looking for a new audio book series to get into and i found this series, i remembered seeing the commercials for the tv series on scfy, and thought it looked interesting (but never watched it). so i pirated a torrent of the first 11 books, i now own the entire series by buying them off of audible, including the ones i had pirated.x

    but this book, it took me 3 tries to get through it, it was just a bit too corny in places for me. it almost read more like some sort of cheesy sitcom in places, kept expecting to hear canned laughter. and the reader, you could hear him breathing into the mic, moving his spit around in his mouth, swallowing etc. having said that, the reader is now one of my favorites, i have bought books just because he read them. this was his first book reading and it shows is all.

    Then one day i needed a book to listen too, had no other options, so i broke down and listened to the second book (Fool Moon) and thoroughly enjoyed it. the difference between this book and the second one was night and day,fool moon is a great book. and fell in love with the series after reading the 3rd book. i would ALMOST suggest skipping this book and would if not for it being referenced and some of the story/characters coming into play in later books, so you'd be lost if you didn't read this one.

    after having said all that, i still recommend buying this book and just powering through it to get to where the series starts to shine in Fool Moon. and gets even better in Grave Peril where it introduces a lot of the main characters you'll see through out the series like Michael, a knight of the cross, he has a sword with a nail from THE crucifixion worked into the hilt to fight the forces of evil and one of Harry's best friends.

    the series is great, has a little bit of everything in it angels, demons, trolls, ogres, fairies, old gods, etc. the series is very clean sex content wise, there is one sex scene out of 15 books. now i'm no prude, but i don't enjoy some dude whispering in my ear describing 2 characters sex acts on each other...

    Druid Atticus O’Sullivan hasn’t stayed alive for more than two millennia without a fair bit of Celtic cunning. So when vengeful thunder gods come Norse by Southwest looking for payback, Atticus, with a little help from the Navajo trickster god Coyote, lets them think that they’ve chopped up his body in the Arizona desert. But the mischievous Coyote is not above a little sleight of paw, and Atticus soon finds that he’s been duped into battling bloodthirsty desert shape-shifters called skinwalkers.

    HATED scooby doo as a kid and his dog reminds me of it waaaay too much. at first it was funny but wore on me quickly.especially when his dog take on the traits of what ever book he reads to him,then i just cringe every time it speaks.

    its a good series and will continue buying them, the dog is really the only thing keeping me from giving it 5 stars.
