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.

    "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.

    "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.

    Story
    "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.

    "Enjoyable sci-fi saga"
    What was one of the most memorable moments of Monster Hunter Alpha?

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    Great character voices overall, but not sure why the Russian werewolf sounds like Chistopher Walken. Picky point, and overall very enjoyable recording.

    "Evils all around and these hunters are hard at it"
    Where does Monster Hunter Alpha rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    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


    What other book might you compare Monster Hunter Alpha to and why?

    Not many others to compare it to it is kind of a unique adventure story with action and emotional ups and downs


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

    He is a great reader I enjoy his many talents and look forward to listening to him again


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Just when you thought you were safe


    Any additional comments?

    Hopefully Mr Correia will write more that just the four books and audible will carry them
    Look forward to many more adventures

    "Another good MHI tale!"
    Any additional comments?

    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.
