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.

I'm a fan of fantasy both epic and contemporary, I cant get enough of it!
Top 5 percent.
The new point of view. Earls story is super interesting.
Earl. Especially when he kills the luscus.
You've never wanted to be cursed so much.
This book is Earl's story, the leader of MHI. It flips back and forth between past and present. We learn about the past when he first becomes a werewolf and the present when he goes after another werewolf from his past without his team. This book was a lot more violent and gory than the first two. In the present an isolated town is taken over by werewolves, and not your typical werewolves. These are what might be called undead werewolves. Amongst all the violence there was a nice storyline and I just wish the ending could have been a little different. So if you're really turned off by blood and gore I wouldn't recommend this book because there was a lot of it.
The narrator did a nice job.
I love to read with my ears while doing chores, running or driving.

Earl; he is so cool
Yes, the others in this series. I think he is excellent; you hardly notice his "voices" even though he is using them to keep you in tune with who is talking.
Yes, even though I have to work....what a luxury that would be!
I was worried that this story would be as good as the others in the series when I realized that it was based on just Earl and not the others characters. However, it was just as interesting and I "bonded" with Earl in this story. He is awesome!
Well I do not understand when they describe the guns and equipment,but thankfully I really do not need to in order to understand the story.
I am nearly dome with this short series and hope I will be hearing that some more books are coming out.
Attorney - love to listen to audio books
The author's writing style gets better with each book. His conversations between characters is realistic and his action scenes are very well done - the pace is excellentt. Earl Harbinger is my favorite character, so this book, which features Earl, was a welcome approach for the series. I believe there are at least two new characters, maybe three, that will appear in future volumes. I am going to download the 4th book with my next new credit to find out.
I cannot say enough great things about the reader. He is awesome. The characters are immediately identifiable because of his consistent accents. His "special effects" (alien voices, explosions, gunfire, etc) are fantastic. His normal reading voice is calm and perfectly paced. He makes these good books great.
I truly can't decide what I like better; the story or the performance. This one had me a little worried at first in that it tells more of Earl's story and the wonderful world of werewolves but after the first two chapters I was totally buckled in and along for the ride!
Oliver Wyman really brings the characters to life. The voice of Nicolai was one of my favorites yet. Oh so Christopher Walken! I kept expecting him to turn to Earl and say, "I gotta have more cowbell"!
Great series and I hope Oliver decides to keep bringing these books to life.
I don't try write a review as if it were the only review a potential reader will see. I write things that I noticed.
When a newly "infected" werewolf gets really excited about the idea of being able to eat all the pie she wants withoutfear of gaining weight.
Great character voices overall, but not sure why the Russian werewolf sounds like Chistopher Walken. Picky point, and overall very enjoyable recording.
Currently a local truck driver who has hours to listen to my audio books. I am hooked, some of my fellow drivers enjoy them also
I enjoy the series and look forward to reading the rest, It is a great change of adventure
with a great set of charactors and plot twist
Not many others to compare it to it is kind of a unique adventure story with action and emotional ups and downs
He is a great reader I enjoy his many talents and look forward to listening to him again
Just when you thought you were safe
Hopefully Mr Correia will write more that just the four books and audible will carry them
Look forward to many more adventures
I really enjoyed the first two efforts in the Monster Hunter series. I wasn't sure of this one. Primarily because I wasn't as interested in Earl Harbinger as a character as I was Owen Pitt. And this story focuses on Earl.
I was a little put off at the start. Rather than being a first person narrative from Earl's perspective it jumps across many characters. And that was a radical difference for me. And across multiple time periods.
But it does to a very good job of filling in Earl's back story. From the time he became a werewolf. And also a bit on Owen's Dad. And once the story begins to roll it is really enjoyable.
One other little note. An old nemesis of Earl, the Russian werewolf Nikolai returns. Listen to Oliver Wyman's voice characterization very carefully. It develops into an excellent Christoper Walken impersonation.
Maybe it is because I love werewolf movies so much... I really liked this book. I really like the idea of it and I think it captured my imagination more than the other books in this series.
