    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"
    "Perfect melding of narrator and story!"

    Story
    What did you love best about Monster Hunter Alpha?

    I loved the story, the nods to H.P. Lovecraft, the sweetness within the tough-as-nails characters, and the tough backbone of the sweet characters. The bad guys are bad, the good guys are better, and I love that! Oliver Wyman narrates perfectly!


    What did you like best about this story?

    I like the author's writing skills. He tells a great story and the voice of his main character, Owen Zastava Pitt, comes through loud and clear, in print and in audio.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    There are so many, and telling would only give away parts of the story, so I'll pass on this question!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Yes, there were many. Again, I can't go into detail, as it would give away too much. I'd hate to ruin anything for a new reader of this book!


    Any additional comments?

    I think Oliver Wyman is the perfect narrator for this book and this series, and I hope this combination continues for the duration of the series.

    The one item that bothered me was that Mr. Wyman mispronounced one word in the novel - one word which was used many times and is, in fact, a staple of this sort of story... but I enjoyed the narration so much, I disregarded it and chose to "hear" it correctly even when he didn't catch it...

    I'm surprised the editing or directing staff didn't catch that, either. I'll leave the word a mystery... most people might not even notice, unless they are reading along! :)
