Dirty Harry meets Twilight. Number 3 in the break-out series and a follow-up to Monster Hunter International and Monster Hunter Vendetta.
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. But another force is working to bring about the creation of a whole new species of werewolf. When darkness falls, the final hunt begins, and the only thing standing in their way is a handful of locals, a lot of firepower, and Earl Harbinger's stubborn refusal to roll over and play dead.

the story was excellent. I didn't give 5 stars only because I don't like being left in suspense. I am glad that there are some more books in this series otherwise I would be upset. It was just that good. Now I'm hoping that the story line pick up in the next book because I'm surely going to buy it immediately.
A well-thought-out novel performed beautifully and in a way that leaves you wanting more. Unlike the others in this series, this takes a more in depth look at a well loved character, and let's us get to really know him. The voice characterizations are spot on, and the Pacing is superb. Great read.
I really enjoyed this book because we get to see this world and some of it's history from a different POV from the first two books main character.
I'm a web developer based out of Sacramento, I listen to books while I work, and love audible.
This is popcorn reading, fun in small doses but I couldn't read 2 books like this in a row. My only complaint is that the author keeps slipping in his political ideas, if I wanted that I would read a political book. And authors that write about monsters aren't the most historically and politically informed people and it shows in the book.
I enjoyed the first two, but this story held my interest the most so far. I enjoyed the trips into the past and finding out some of the whys and hows. Great installment in a fun and gripping series
If you've read the first few books in this series, you've learned to love the straight-forward leader of MHI. This terrific story focuses on Earl Harbinger and his approach to isolating a monster outbreak up north. In the process, he recruits new members to his organizations, finds a new rival, and even falls in love....monster style.
This book is written in a much different setting compared to the first two, but if you've made it this far in the series, then there's really no stopping you right? I wouldn't try to though, this book is still extremely entertaining, and well worth the listen!

Larry Correia has an amazing ability to describe scenery and action. This third Monster Hunter book focuses on Earl Harbinger, the elder werewolf and many of the other characters introduced in the Monster Hunter series are not in the story since the setting is an out of town trip Earl has taken.
The new characters introduced are great and I love the description of the northern weather, the equipment, clothes, and different lifestyle which are in opposition to the previous southern humidity and greenery described in Alabama.
The imagery, fast moving and intricate plot, and insightful character descriptions make Larry Correia's books fun and exciting.
I'm not interested in horror, or bloody action movies or books, but the writing in these books make me interested and the imagination and descriptive ability of the author keep me going.
The first Monster Hunter book was good, but I felt the romance bits were predictable, a tad awkward, and weren't as sophisticated as the rest of the book. The writing has improved, with the second book being a lot better, and this third book I've read is good too. I still think the Grimnoir trilogy is better, with more iconoclastic characters, but since I've finished those I've come back to read the Monster Hunter books and finish this series.
The imagination and interesting plots are the best feature of Larry Correia's work. The underlying humor is spice. The writing of women characters and bits of romance will hopefully evolve and seem to be improving in comparison to the first MH book, but the female characters have been at times depicted in a stereotypical and one-dimensional manner. In this book, it was all too predictable that the "cradle-robber" joke was going to be made, and I just shook my head when it happened.
Narration was good. I had thought the northern accents would have been more like in the movie "Fargo" but accents were lightly used.
Great continuation of a great series. This focus of the book is Earl Harbinger rather than MHI and its other associated characters. I really enjoy Larry Correia's first person POV writing style. It gets you very deep into each of the characters.
I read the rest of the series before reading this one, and it didn't make any difference - and in fact I'm glad I did it the way I did, because this is very much a side story, not part of the "main arc". Nevertheless I found the story enjoyable once I got around to listening to it!
