I am a costume designer who listens to books at work. Isn't that a great job?! Discovered the concept way back when it was "books on tape", then cd, and now my iphone. the only down side is that I get upset when actors interupt my stories! Oops!

    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.

    Where does Monster Hunter Legion rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    In the top five with the Grimnoir, Dresden files, President's Vampire, and Iron Druid. Hmmmm, seeing a theme emerging. Oh, and Cabin Pressure for comic relief.


    What does Oliver Wyman bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The voices are perfect. Distinctive and fit the personalities.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes. I was listening at work and got way too grouchy when people interupted me. Oops.


    Any additional comments?

    Can't wait for book 5! Every time a new book comes out, I revisit the whole series in order. What a treat!

    If you could sum up Dead Six in three words, what would they be?

    Riveting. Satisfying. Transcending.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Both leads. They were remarkably human and tenacious.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When the two trains (story lines) collide.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    YES! Stayed up too late a couple nights and got cranky at work when interrupted.


    Any additional comments?

    I was put off by the description, but since I love MHI and the Grimnoir, I checked out a couple of the other reviews and was convinced to give it a try. I bought three other books at the same time. Tried two of them and didn't make it ten minutes into either of them. I started Dead Six and was hooked two minutes in! I'm sorry, Larry. I should never have doubted you!

    The presidential campaign trail, 2012: A political operative and a volunteer are brutally murdered while caught in a compromising position. Written in their blood on the wall of the crime scene: IT'S GOOD TO BE BACK. And with that, a centuries-old horror known only as the Boogeyman returns to taunt Nathaniel Cade, the president's vampire. Against the backdrop of the 2012 presidential race, with the threat of constant exposure by the media, Cade and Zach must stop the one monster Cade has never been able to defeat completely.

    What did you love best about Red, White, and Blood?

    What a great series. Makes the day of sewing go by quickly, but makes interruptions really, really annoying!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Listened at work, in the car, at the grocery store, went home and listened to it instead of watching tv.


    Any additional comments?

    When they make the movie, Jim Caviezel should play Cade!
