    Earl Harbinger may be the leader of Monster Hunter International, but he's also got a secret. Nearly a century ago, Earl was cursed to be a werewolf. When Earl receives word that one of his oldest foes, a legendarily vicious werewolf that worked for the KGB, has mysteriously appeared in the remote woods of Michigan, he decides to take care of some unfinished business.

    Nicholas says: "Unexpectedly Enjoyable"
    "Great addition to the Monster Hunter franchise"

    Story

    If you are interested in how MHI came to be and, in particular, how Earl came to be the man(?) he is today, this is the story for you. Mr. Correia does another exellent job of weaving a fantastical story onto the backdrop of rural America.

    The story's focus is on Earl and a little side adventure he took without the full complement of (or knowedge of) MHI resources. Things quickly grow beyond Earl's expectations and he finds himself in the middle of a battle for the future of mankind. Again. During the course of the adventure, Earl's background is revealed through a series of flashbacks as documented in the journal he keeps. Mr. Correia again generates an exiciting storyline and interesting characters which makes it difficult to stop the book.

    Mr. Wyman repeats his excellent performance of the characters From the previous books adding vocal nuances and depth that provides a full dimension to the characters. Truthfully, I struggled between playing the audiobook at double speed to progress the story quickly and playing it normally to relish Mr. Wyman's performance.

    It's not necessary to have read the prior two MHI books, however they will provide you useful insight to some of Earl's narrative.

    Story

    Very bad attempt at an adventure story. Inconsistent. Implausible. No character development. And the story has little to do with finding Noah's Ark.

    Captain John "Black Jack" Geary's legendary exploits are known to every schoolchild. Revered for his heroic "last stand" in the early days of the war, he was presumed dead. But a century later, Geary miraculously returns from survival hibernation and reluctantly takes command of the Alliance fleet as it faces annihilation by the Syndics.

    Appalled by the hero-worship around him, Geary is nevertheless a man who will do his duty. And he knows that bringing the stolen Syndic hypernet key safely home is the Alliance's one chance to win the war. But to do that, Geary will have to live up to the impossibly heroic "Black Jack" legend.

    Justin says: "Kinda boring, mostly tedious, and frustrating"
    "A good study in leadership challenges"

    Story

    Jack Geary is dropped into a military fleet command in which he must transform the contemporary leadership practices and tactics in order to get the fleet home. I enjoyed his thoughtful analysis of the people and situation. He learns from his commanders as they learn from him. Well, some learn from him, others don't have an open mind. There are some parallels in the story to my work, so in a way I learned too. Maybe that's why I liked it so much.
