Monster Hunter International might be the premier monster eradication company in the business, but they’ve got competition.
When hunters from around the world gather in Las Vegas for a conference, a creature left over from a World War Two weapons experiment wakes up and goes on a rampage across the desert. A not-so-friendly wager between the rival companies turns into a race to see who can bag the mysterious creature first. Only there is far more to this particular case than meets the eye, and as Hunters fall prey to their worst nightmares, Owen Zastava Pitt and the staff of Monster Hunter International have to stop an ancient god from turning Sin City into a literal hell on earth.

"Oliver Wyman narrates the entire tale with a swagger in his voice. Even the chapter headings sound aggressive. His characters are so unique that at times listeners may think there's a second narrator." (AudioFile)
Guns, monsters and a lot of stuff I never expected. Definitely worth the credit especially if you buy them beforehand
Once again Larry Correia has done a phenomenal job crafting an intriguing and exciting story. The narrator did a great job with the voices. My only minor complaint is that sometimes the volume had to be adjusted to hear or be turned down when it got too loud.
Loving this series. Writer has excellently crafted every part of this story. So many great connections and great details. Action monsters suspense. Love it
With beautifully presented ideas and characters, Larry Correia brings us a view of the world as it could be, in a fascinating and believable way. Monster Hunter Legion upholds the series' exemplary record of performance and storyline.
If you're a fan of the previous three Monster Hunters this is I very good extension of the series logical line of progression from character. Love you too the monster battling
I started this series just a week or two ago. Haven't been able to stop listening. Like the previous books in this series, this title is extremely well written. The author has mastered the skill of balancing action, character development, and all those little things that make you feel like you're witnessing the events transpire with your own eyes.
I'm not sure if I can listen to another narrator after Oliver Wyman. It's like magic in my ears The series is amazing that I don't want to stop listening.

I laughed out loud, I cheered, I ahem, got 'dust' in my eyes and they may have gotten watery once or twice. Dust you see, dust.
I absolutely loved this book (as well as the previous 3 books in the series) and the series is hands-down one of the best I've ever read (or in this case, listened to :P). Larry Correia does it again by thrusting his very well-written and likeable characters into crazy situations worthy of any AAA Hollywood blockbuster movie. The action scenes are amazing and we get to see many characters in the spotlight, from the protagonist to other members of MHI and more. We see several of them grow and evolve into even more interesting characters, from Edward the baddass ninja-orc with his taboo inter-species budding relationship to Mosh, Owen's younger brother who learns to stop hating him and finally grows some cojones.
Another thing I love about this series is that it doesn't always take itself seriously and we are treated to hilarious moments throughout the book such as the aforementioned antics between Edward and Tanya the trailer Elf and Skippy's reactions when he finds out had me in stitches! Correia has a real gift for wall-placed sarcasm, wit and humour where it's never too much and always welcome.
And the narration, oh the narration. I often get asked by co-workers how I manage to enjoy someone else reading a book to me when according to them, it's always better to read a book yourself and I tell them it's all about the narration. Oliver Wyman's performance is perfect, from his pitch, intonations, accents, many voices and is an absolute delight to listen to and enhances the story itself imho.
I've listened to the first 4 books twice now (just re-listened to to book 4 before getting into the recently-released 5) and I've had a blast both times and am looking forward to more!
