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.

Folks, for audiobooks it's not just about the writer, it's also about the narrator...
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.
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.
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.
One of my all-time favorite series with excellent narration and a great story that's all you need to know. You will never consider this a wasted credit.
Ars longa, vita brevis
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 narrator doing a Christopher Walken impression for one of the characters.
Nikolai--because Christopher Walken
Mowing down undead with a giant woodchipper was pretty great.
I laughed nearly every time Nikolai talks for an extended time.
"Best so far!"
More than exceeded my expectations. I can only hope that there will be another novel where Earl is the lead character. Wow!
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.
"Another great story"
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.
"great book series just keeps getting better "
couldn't stop listening great characters action and plot development. series continues to grow and improve
"Weird off putting accent.........."
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
"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
