    Five days after Owen Zastava Pitt pushed his insufferable boss out of a 14th story window, he woke up in the hospital with a scarred face, an unbelievable memory, and a job offer. It turns out that monsters are real. All the things from myth, legend, and B-movies are out there, waiting in the shadows. Some of them are evil, and some are just hungry. Monster Hunter International is the premier eradication company in the business. And now Owen is their newest recruit.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book and the series in general. I was a little skeptical because of the title and the cover, but the author/narrator combination works. I am pretty sure Larry is a complete gun nut because of his detailed descriptions of everything dealing with weapons, but it is interesting to see how exciting some of the characters become when talking about them :-). In any case, give it a try, definitely worth the credits.

    When aliens trundled a gate to other worlds into the solar system, the world reacted with awe, hope and fear. But the first aliens to come through, the Glatun, were peaceful traders and the world breathed a sigh of relief.

    I enjoyed the writing, concepts, and narration of the book. That being said, I know that John Ringo is a guest commentator on Fox News, but the constant political bashing does get a bit old after a while. I get it, you don't like liberals but geez... In any case, I did enjoy the book enough to get the following two books :-)

    When we last left the mighty wizard detective Harry Dresden, he wasn't doing well. In fact, he had been murdered by an unknown assassin. But being dead doesn't stop him when his friends are in danger. Except now he has nobody, and no magic to help him. And there are also several dark spirits roaming the Chicago shadows who owe Harry some payback of their own. To save his friends - and his own soul - Harry will have to pull off the ultimate trick without any magic....

    Overall

    I am a huge fan of this series and have listened as Jim and James developed the characters through pen and voice. I was very disappointed to hear that James was not going to be reading this book but I figured I'd give John a chance. I went in with an open mind and glad I did. James is not John but as a stand in, he is pretty good actually. He does different voices for everyone and most match fairly close to James' interpretations of the characters. If you truly give it a chance and listen to the performance that John has put on I don't think you will be disappointed. You just have to try to go in unbiased. I know it is difficult especially if you have followed the series thus far... Just my two cents (for all that is worth). All except for the Peewee Herman voice... Extremely annoying (although I think that is what John was going for). That being said, I am very much hoping that James comes back for Cold Days.

    As for the book itself, another solid step in the development of Harry. Thanks Jim! Let's just say that if James read the book I would have given it 5 stars.
