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.

Hard to say, this one is really good, but comparing this to The Wheel of Time just isn't fair to either series. That said, I love this series.
The second Alpha werewolf and Heather becoming a werewolf. The battles between Harbingener and Petrov were great.
I really like this series, the characters are likeable, in a smart mouthed fashion, and the story is slightly plausible; slightly...
It's just a really fun read (listen) that doesn't stop at the end of the book. Being a retired Infantry soldier, I like guns and this series doesn't dissipoint with descriptions of guns and the use of guns in all their forms.
While I do like Z, I found Harbinger a much more compelling lead character. I was uneasy going in, concerned about deviating from the other two books which I had found fun if not exceptional. But those fears were quickly dispelled. Earl and the new characters were each compelling, a welcome break from what seemed to be destined to become another formulaic fantasy series. This book was at least a full star better than the previous stories.

Departing from the story of Z. Pitt and his life as a monster hunter, Correia gives us more of the story of Harbinger. This story was much needed and I actually liked it more that the rest of the series. Harbinger is a bit more believeable and understandable after hearing this side of his story, and the idea of an alpha being challenged. If you like the story so far, jump in to alpha, you'll like it even more!

This novel continues the fabulous Monster Hunter International and focus on the enigmatic leader of MHI - Earl Harbinger. There's a kinds of MHI fun in this book. If you've enjoyed the previous books you'll enjoy this one as well.
If you like Urban Fantasy but haven't experienced MHI you should start with Monster Hunter International.
The performance by Oliver Wyman is - as always - absolutely top notch. Highly recommended.
Yes. Mr. Wyman is a perfect selection for this work.
Getting to know the Harbinger back story.
Each character has their own...personality that Oliver brings clearly over the speakers.
This sets apart from the series. It fits as a piece of the overall puzzle, however it is more or less its own book.
I just wanted to comment on Wyman's performance -- I did a veritable double-take and a big grin spread across my face as I heard his portrayal of the character Nicolai. He gave one of the two voices for the schizophrenic Russian a distinct impersonated inflection like the actor Christopher Walken -- how oddly appropriate! It gave me a good chuckle.
Yes. Even though it's the third, it's a great intro to the series. Book one starts with a werewolf attack; this book is all werewolf. Backstory for Earle; origin of werewolves, why the MCB are so distrusted - a great introduction to the series.
Earle - he's a far more likeable lead than Owen... I was getting pretty sick of the "I'm a big guy" thing non stop. It's nice to have a 'reluctant hero', a hero that does it because it's the right thing to do not because it's all he can do.
Don't get me wrong, I like Owen - but sometimes I get the feeling he is just the author's fantasy version of himself. In this book Larry is forced to write a main character that isn't just 'Larry'.
Anything with Nikolai. The narrator's Walken impression added and extra dimension to the unhinged character.
Yes. I listen to books whilst driving; it's pretty rare far me to carry on listening in the house. This one doesn't want you to stop.
Satisfied Audible listener since 2002. I mostly listen to Sci-fi and anything by Stephen King.
More of the same, and that's a very good thing. I love this series. This one is a bit diff as most series regulars are absent in this story, but no problem this is a fun read.
I am married with a teenage son and run my own business. As I am visually impaired, audio books are my life.
This was a novel on a particular character from the monster hunter series. He probably went on holidays with the author. It was much more somber than the others in the series however still very good
Tell us about yourself!
I was looking forward to this book because i have been becoming a bigger fan of this series with each book, however i was disappointed that this book centered on 1 member of the team instead of the entire team. having the entire team involved in the story is what makes the story more interesting. on the redeeming side of things this book did have a lot of backstory stuff in it and some stuff to build off for future stories. hopefully the next book will be better this is a good series and i want to keep hearing more from it.
not centered on just one member of the team.
i have listened to most of this authors books and this one is low on the scale for the story.
