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.

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!
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!
This avatar actually looks like me.
This is the third book in the Monster Hunter series, very entertaining, great story .
Oliver Wyman's performance is great, he is an asset to this story.
if your a Jim Butcher fan and you have ran out of Dresden files books to read. This series is a good substitute, and just as entertaining as any I have listened to recently.
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!!
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.
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.
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.
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.
