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.

    "It's as if the author was taking a breather"
    If you could sum up Monster Hunter Alpha in three words, what would they be?

    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

    Story
    "Disappointing"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    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.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    not centered on just one member of the team.


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

    i have listened to most of this authors books and this one is low on the scale for the story.

    Story
    "Incredible Writing Continues"
    Would you listen to Monster Hunter Alpha again? Why?

    The entire Monster Hunter Series is a series I wish I could listen to again for the first time. This story is phenomenal, complete, telling, suspenseful, and makes us love Earl even more, if that is possible.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Earl is my favorite character because of his integrity, strength, and how complex a character he is.


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

    I have to speed the audiobook to 1.5 to make Wyman's delivery sound good. He is a slow reader who needs to speed it up a bit, but the speed option on my phone app works perfectly.


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

    I was indeed moved by Earl's last encounter with Nicoli (spelling?) and the bloodline that continued through their complex relationship


    Any additional comments?

    This, at first, was not what I thought I would enjoy as much as the first two books, but ended up being my favorite of all the series to this point. KEEP WRITING LARRY!!

    Story
    "This is the story of Harbinger."
    Would you listen to Monster Hunter Alpha again? Why?

    The story is tight with no repeats of ANY of the previous novels.
    Larry has really a very creative, rational, flexible mind.
    Corrupt MCB agents, a resourceful townsfolk, a she-werewolf with a crush on Harbinger, a russian psycho-werewolf with two personalities (like Joe Ledger): all of them.
    And no MHI at all. Surprising.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Monster Hunter Alpha?

    The funniest moments: like when Harbinger tries to smoke without renegerative lungs and claims: "These things could kill me now!" Duh.
    Heather kissing Harbinger. That was unexpected. And Nikolai surrendering to Harbinger.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Harbinger realizing he had bitten a Singer who was carrying a human child and who now had the Curse.
    Rocky stole some of the worst and best memories.


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

    Laugh at sudden moments and made me lose control of the car more than once.
    Do NOT listen to it in traffic.


    Any additional comments?

    The narrator is brilliant.

    "fun, action filled, thriller, and easy listen"
    If you could sum up Monster Hunter Alpha in three words, what would they be?

    a great story line.


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

    have no answer to this one. It stands alone.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    the point where Nicolas reinfects Earl. Their conversation and finally mutual understanding.


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

    yes


    Any additional comments?

    I have enjoyed the entire series. It is unsual and although a building for armagedon, the story line is very unusual. The characters are real and enjoyable.

    "Love The Whole Series So Far!"

    Oliver Wyman does an outstanding job of changing voices for character. Larry Correia creates characters that you you can relate to, and storylines that keep you guessing! Love the whole series so far!

    "Zombies & Werewolves & Gov Agents, oh my!"
    Where does Monster Hunter Alpha rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    TOP NOTCH! For casual no heavy thinking full of explosions listen. It was better than watching Mission Impossible. There are werewolves and concerned citizens turned werewolf hunters! Full of Awesome!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Monster Hunter Alpha?

    Ah, the part when Earl realizes he may have found True Love!


    Which character – as performed by Oliver Wyman – was your favorite?

    I love everyone of them! Earl especially, though a special mention of the Lady in Charge of the School Gym is very satisfactory as well. Part of the reason why I read MHI was Wyman's voice.


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

    I did listened to it in one sitting.Until 4 am...


    Any additional comments?

    I had a headache, but it was well worth it. A few days later I listened to it again, at a more reasonable pace. Starting from book 1. Yeah.

    "Squish"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I read Monster Hunter and enjoyed it. This book spends way too much time describing gory werewolf kills at the expense of story line.


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

    Much more colorful


    Do you think Monster Hunter Alpha needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No. Replaced plot with gore descriptions . Unless can develop more of a story lineE.
