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)
So, at this point you have probably read or listened to all of the prior books in the series...this one is worth the time/$, but don't expect to be blown away, or even barely nudged off your seat. The weakest of the series...sad to say. Larry, give us more like Monster Hunter Alpha!!
Great plot action
When Owen finds out about his wife
Liked them all, the end was great
The Government Did It

I'm 59 1/2 love action and adventure such as PREY BOOKS JACK REACHER GREY MAN ONE OF MY FAVORITE IS MONSTER HUNTER INTERNATIONAL
I have and will contuie to recommend to all my listener friends.
The intire series is great entertainment
New was very professional in his character and nailed them all
yes, He is an above average reader, not my favorite and no were near my least favored.
yes but to long to
A solid transitional book. I tend to dislike books there pretty much all the action is in a very short time frame, around 24 hours in this case. I would like to see more long term character development, instead of just a gratuitous action novel.
To many situations, too many characters, story was way out there....crazy weird.
Depends on story, probably not another Monster Hunter story.
Gee, let me choose. Several.
Really couldn't get into it that much, like someone was on drugs when they wrote this.
Although I enjoyed the first in this series, this one left me a bit exhausted. The story is well-written enough, so I don't want to discourage folks from reading it. It just isn't for me. It is just too much; it goes on and on and on and I was left tired and ready for it all to end. Just not my cup of tea. The performance is fine and the basic story is fine and the character development is fine. I just get tired of the constant scary scene after scary scene...just too much for my taste.
I'm a horror nut! Zombies in particular! Epidemics, end of all things! Also enjoyed Game of thrones very much!
YES. anyone who's made it this far in series already knows how great an adventure it has been and I'd be preaching to choir. If unfamiliar with MHI and their adventures then do yourself a favor go get book one and get started right away!
Can't say I've been disappointed as of yet.
Laugh a bit no crying
Keep Em coming! Good stuff!

"Motherf***er can't handle what's in my brain." So says Pitt.
This is the immortal sentence that's been stuck in my brain ever since i heard it.
WOW ! What a wonderful, well written novel.
The surprise was "Management" is a 200-feet last dragon on Earth which is surprisingly gentle and is the good guy.
Meeting Heather again is a wonderful surprise.
All in all, Larry Correia, am eagerly saving my credits for your next book.
I would recommend this book to a friend, but to a lesser degree than the previous 3. the villain/monster in this book is just not as cool as the last three books. The narrator still does a good job, but there's not as much gun talk(which actually helped these books stand out) as the previous books. Owen, Mosh, and their Dad's "destiny" is being dragged out and needs to get somewhere soon.
The most interesting aspect of the story is the dragon! Too bad they spend such little time with this character, maybe he'll be back in the next book. I can't even remember if he dies or not. It's also fun to hear more about U.N.I.C.O.R.N. again, but Correia skims over it too little. Jason is a welcome return character from "Alpha".
Least interesting would be the new brown noser idiot in charge of MCB. I forget his name at the moment. The old guy in charge was a jerk but at least he wasn't an idiot. He wanted to kill monsters and at the end of the day do some good. The new guy is clueless and just about moving up the corporate/government ladder. Franks is sadly missing from the story too much this time around.
Probably the pocket universe in the German's room was the most interesting scene based on the description of the setting and the action going on. A close second would be when Owen and Franks go to the bunker in Dugway.
I guess I've heard worse. This series was one of my favorites, but The Grimnoir Chronicles by the same author but narrated by Bronson Pinchot are so much more interesting that MHI series is losing it's appeal. Maybe if they wrap things up soon with the Genesis Project, The Old Ones, and Owen or Mosh fulfill this prophecy to kill their dad and save the world. It feels like they Correia is starting to drag it out too long in my opinion. we'll see, the next installment could easily reel me back in. Perhaps Mr. Correia is using this one as a setup for the big finale? Let's hope so.
Despite my average rating of this audiobook I am still a fan of the author, narrator, and series as a whole. I will probably buy the next installment when it comes out. I am hoping the next one is a finale, because I think this can only go on so long before it starts getting repetitive and boring. Four books of build up is enough I think and if they bring all the forces of good together like Franks, the old Polish guy, Harbinger's ancestors, U.N.I.C.O.R.N, and all the international monster hunting crews into a massive final Battle Royale it would be a good, gnarly ending. We'll just have to wait and see!
