Publisher's Summary

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.

Track down another Monster Hunter title.

    Story
    "Fantastic!!"
    Would you listen to Monster Hunter Alpha again? Why?

    Yes I would. This book being number 3in the monster hunter series is a breath of fresh air considering it focuses on earl harbinger instead of Owen Pitt which even if it was I would haveno complaints because the past two books where centered around him and they were fantastic!!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    For me earl harbinger is the obvious choice because he is such an intricately rich character full of surprises. He was already one of my top two favorites in the series before I finished this book.


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

    He does an amazing job embodying the characters whether it be earl harbinger or one of the monsters he is killing. This man truly has a gift for story telling. He truly does a fantastic job giving every character their own unique voice that is all their own. I can envision every character in my mind in a very unique and fun way because of Wyman.


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

    The end when heather is taken from earl to earn her puff exemption by serving time as a member of special task force unicorn. That last part of the book really makes you feel for earl. He finally finds someone after being alone for over 80 years and their ripped from him to be a slave for the government.


    Any additional comments?

    Also I really enjoyed nicoli's character. Larry corria built a rich and complex character who you think is just another bad guy in the beginning only to find out he has another side to him as well that's not wholly evil. Also I can't wait to see what happens between Jason Lococo and Owen Pitt when they finally see each other as I am 99% positive Owen is the fighter that fought him and caused him to lose his eye. It will be interesting to see them work out their past an hopefully see loco integrate into MHI. He seems like he would make a great member of Owens team as long as they can settle their differences.

    "Smaller scope story makes things more interesting"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Monster Hunter Alpha to be better than the print version?

    Yes, after listening to the first two books I can't imagine any other way.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Being focused on Earl Harbinger was fun.

    At first I was worried that I would tire of his accent but luckily Earl is a man of few words.


    Did Oliver Wyman do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    The Russian was awesome.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    The book is quiet gruesome...

    "My favorite in the series...So far."

    This books steps away from the main MHI story line with Owen Pitt at its center for a story that focuses on Earl Harbinger, the leader of MHI. This book is by far my favorite of the MHI series so far. I couldn't stop listening and finished the entire thing in a single day.

    As with all MHI books it is filled with lots of action & humor and plenty of guns, guts, and monsters. If you are an MHI fan you can't go wrong with this one.

    "The Best Book in the series !"

    Finally , a book about someone other than Z ! This book is a wonderful story , about one of the most interesting characters in the MHI universe - Earl Harbinger. You don't need to have read the other MHI books to love this gem , and it is a galloping trip thru MHI history . Olvier Wyman does a first rate job with the material , and the story is fast paced and engaging.

    Story
    "Earl's story"

    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.

    Story
    "I was a little worried....."
    Where does Monster Hunter Alpha rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    In the top 5%


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Earl; he is so cool


    Have you listened to any of Oliver Wyman’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    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.


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

    Yes, even though I have to work....what a luxury that would be!


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "Best of the series so far"
    Any additional comments?

    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'll take lycanthropy for 500 **"

    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.
