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.

    Folks, for audiobooks it's not just about the writer, it's also about the narrator...

    "A Nice Detour to a Series"

    Let me start off by saying I am a big fan of the Monster Hunter Series and an even bigger fan of Oliver Wyman (yeah, the narrator.) For this third installment, the write takes us off the beaten path he has taken us in the first two books and explores the life and time of one of the more interesting characters from the first two books. The interweaving of history and current day events is woven well, and the story itself has a meaning an purpose I'm sure Mr. Correia will bring to light in subsequent books.

    And of course, Oliver Wyman continues to show why he's the best in the biz (IMHO.) His range of voices, both male and female, continue to astound me. He's got great material to work with in this series and I can't wait to hear the next one.

    "Great Performance. Best MHI book yet."

    MHI books have been 3 stars up till now. this is the best one yet.

    the voice actor is the real reason to listen to this book. he brings life to the story.

    Exceeds expectations.
    Great, action packed story. Plenty of Rambo here.
    Tremendous narration. Possibly the best I have encountered. The Nickoli voice cracked me up - Christopher Walken FTW.

    At first I missed the rest of the "gang" but the book was difficult to put down and I enjoyed it.... Hope they continue the Earl/Heather relationship

    Well Done! Great story and performance! This episode was the best so far, but maybe it's just because I love Earl!

    I have loved every "Monster Hunter" book. If you're looking for rip roaring escapist entertainment it doesn't get any better than this series.

    "The voice acting made me giggle."
    What did you love best about Monster Hunter Alpha?

    The narrator doing a Christopher Walken impression for one of the characters.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Nikolai--because Christopher Walken


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Mowing down undead with a giant woodchipper was pretty great.


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

    I laughed nearly every time Nikolai talks for an extended time.

    Yet another "Monster Hunter" great by Larry Correia with brilliant narration by Oliver Wyman. Best if you've heard the previous books but not essential.

    Excellent story just like the rest of the series! You won't be disappointed. If you haven't listened to the first ones try to start at the beginning so you know what's going on, not a necessity but it helps.

    If you could sum up Monster Hunter Alpha in three words, what would they be?

    Really good but get 1 and 2 first. Only problem was the reader cant do a russian accent and it kept reminding me of Christopher Walken, well a bad "saturday night live" impersonation

    Story
    "The weakest of the series, but needed in the story"

    I feel that this book is the weakest in the series so far, and to stretch into a whole book something that could have been a short story, and rather like other series (like the Dresden Files or Iron Druid) that have a book of side stories, it could have been a compendium - this story just felt dragged out, and overly long, covering things that just didn't need to be there

    This is a complete departure from the formula that made the first 2 books so enjoyable, with only one member of MHI, although the oldest & strongest, and being used to introduce new members of the company & upcoming important cast

    Certain parts of the story were rather obvious, and telegraphed chapters before they happened, but without Oliver Wyman's reading this would have been nowhere near as enjoyable

    If this wasn't "required reading" for the next book, I'd suggest skipping this one, but you need to know several things that happen in this story, several characters, and what happens along the way, or parts of the following book kind of makes no sense
