Not only was this a great telling of a heartwarming story of a family openning their arms to a downtrodden unlikely stranger, but it also tied in a great analysis of the evolution of pro football.
This is an awesome ending (or is it?) to a wonderful series. Mr. Correia brings it home with non-stop action, as our heroes joined by an unlikely ally fight an enemy bent on sucking the entire planet dry of life.
Another great read in Mr. Correia's epic world of altered history where magic is real and a few lucky, or unlucky souls, possess it. This book adds new enemies for our heroes to fight. Enemies from an unlikely source, our own government.
Mr. Correia does it again. I have become a big fan, and I approach each of his new series with trepidation expecting a disappointment. I was far from disappointed. This series is as good as Mr. Correia other series. It re-writes history and covers it with a blanket of magic. Any fans of super powered heroes fighting super powered foes will love these books. The characters are great and the action is furious as the author manages to pull you into his new imaginary world while keeping you on your toes with plot shifts. I gave the performance a 4 instead of a 5 because the narrator, from time to time, reads with a certain sarcasm. This sarcasm does not fit the characters he's narrating. It is not frequent, but it can be quite distracting.
The authors' over the top sense of politcal humor.
Senate hopeful Liz Warren because she's exemplifies how many people view politicians. Mainly she thinks she is smarter than everyone, is entitled, and will do anything to get elected.
This is a full blown production with sound effects, multiple voices, and mood music. It brought the book alive. It made it almost like an audible action comic book.
Yes, like most of the Destroyer series, it was relatively short. So, it kept you involved. It's almost as if it was meant for one sitting.
The Destroyer Series is a long time favorite of mine. I wish Audible had more of these books available. (I have seen some on tapes...yes cassette tapes, at truck stops, yet Audible only has 2 available. I believe GraphicAudio has done many more.
Yes, actually, I am considering starting the entire series over. Just to see if there was anything I missed with this badass federal agent in previous books.
The truck in the cargo plane scene. I will leave it at that.
He does an excellent job of character variations, especially when some of the characters are monsters.
Agent Franks has become public enemy number one.
Now, the feds are hunting him, super soldiers infused with demons want him dead, and monster hunters from around the world want to take a shot at this once legendary agent.
All this does is make him mad.
Larry Correia never ceases to surprise me with each of his novels. They might be heaping helpings of bullets mixed with testosterone, but in this feel good age, us men need our anti-twilight series reads. Where monsters are still monsters, and someone needs to put them down. I have expanded out from MHI to his other books. Nope, still not disappointed. (Except when they end, and I have to wait for him to finish his next in the series.)
Actually, yes, the performance is excellent.
Chuin demanding to find the Washington Pollsters because his Soaps were cancelled to broadcast Watergate coverage.
Remo "eliminating" 2 companies of men, de-tusking several elephants, and disabling six jeeps, all while naked.
The Sun Source of Martial Arts comes to Africa.
Please add more of these to Audible. They are great chunks of entertainment.
This is a great cornerstone book on reading people. You will be amazed what you notice. I play poker, and it has already helped notice, what I do wrong as well as others. It also will make watching all kinds of people way more interesting, including politicians, teachers, and litigants on court TV shows. Very useful and entertaining.
...As blood sucking fiends, who can only fake human sexuality to feed and control. John Steakley is one of my favoite writers and story tellers. I am glad audible released his two books to date.
Gritty, emotional, a great train ride...
Some valid and interesting arguements, but there are also some major loopholes. Stick with Lee Strobel for some scientific points of views, and C.S. Lewis for philosophical arguements. In my opinion, they do a more tidy job on a subject that should still be something that to which you draw your own conclusions. The book does get one thinking, however...especially when "people", mainly "intellectuals" tell everyone how it is...investigate for yourself, research and weigh the options.
I wish I read the reviews before I downloaded this pasture steamer. Why do accomplished authors try to bludgeon their ways into currently popular genres? I have read several J. Patterson's books, and he's way better than this. This is nothing more than a miserable failed attempt at getting into the “Adolescent Twilight, the supernatural isn’t scary, it’s cool and romantic” genre. I have tried many such books, and I hated them all, and this is the worst, by far.
