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)
Yes. This series has a rich and compelling story. There are small details which are important.
He's able to do some amazing accents.
The Monster Hunter series is an awesome example of how cool Urban Fantasy can be.
I was sorry to reach the end of this one and was carried along just as well or better as the others. Excellent, great entertainment.
Love the sense of humor and down to earth narration of "Z".
The entrance of "Mangement" was perfect. Hoping that this character survived to make another appearance!!
I like the fact that this narrator has stayed with the series. It is so difficult to switch narrators sometimes. When you hear the familiar voice it's like your friend has returned.
Monster mayhem and high tech ordinance!
I'm not a gun nut or SCTV's 'Blew up real good!" type of red neck but I'm always drawn back to this storyline.
My brother put me on to these and the first one was just okay. But as each book comes out, it gets better!
I'm glad that I stuck it out and to see other characters develop and take the spot light as in real life!
The performance was terrific. I 'see' each character in my minds eye and and know who is saying what.
I'm not going to run out to buy a gun but will get the next story.

This installment of the monster hunter series doesn't disappoint, with action, tension, high stakes, cool monsters, a twisty plot, and even some romance thrown in between bursts of automatic gunfire. The international monster hunting scene is explored in this book, character back stories are brought out and examined, and new and exciting ways to die are illustrated. There's loads of suspense and conflict, and the prose smoothly flows keeping you in the story and constantly hooked. Correia won't win awards for poetry, but for fast paced action that grabs you and won't let you go, he's a master.
Gun nuts will love this book too, as he spends time accurately depicting gun use and new gun models and attachments. I loved this series, and this book was a fine example of it.
Probably middle of the road, not quite up there with john rain series, but above the other monster books I've heard
Yes I think I would try another book, I rather enjoyed the first and third books in the series, I also enjoyed hard magic, other than the narrator
Earl, although he didn't play as big a role as I would have liked
I'm waiting to see the next one
This is tough but it makes the top ten for sure. the first two books of the series is defeinetly in there as well.
how you have some of the best monsters killers in the world create such destruction in a hotel. Seriously at one point a couple of characters made a game of how big of an explosion they could make.
i am a person that has a hard time giving a character a voice. and he definetly creates a bunch of the characters especially the monsters where in the book it would be just words followed by he mumbled but in the book he gave the you were able to hear the orc pilot struggle with the words and even sometimes saythem almost bad enough were you think the orc actually did the narrating.
Las Vegas will never be the same.
This is one of the best series i am listening to. i am extremely excited for the next book. i was glad to see the author wasn't going to continue the series with vampires and went way outside the box. Great book Better Series
I like mostly fantasy - Robert Jordan, Charlaine Harris, Jim Butcher, Patricia Briggs, etc.
If you're reading this review then you'r probably an avid fantasy reader. Either way ALL of the books in the Monster Hunter series are great! This installment follows the hunters to a business conferance in Vegas & that's where the guns, hunters, & monsters come together for an action packed story. The author is into to guns & it shows but the story line is good, humerous, & keeps you interested. Worth the credit & I will certainly buy the next book in the series.
Sometimes my mind drifts off when I'm listening to an audiobook and I have to backtrack to hear what I missed. This never happens with the Monster Hunter International series! Lots of fast paced action and unexpected twists keeps my mind fully occupied.
Unlike some fantasy books where the characters are conflicted, Zee is different in that he's very clearly the good guy. Not just THE good guy, but A good guy too - one you'd want to have a beer with.
If you like stories where good kicks evil's butt, this is the series for you!
Like im there this book rocks !
this this is soo good that good makes it look bad
