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)
I am married with a teenage son and run my own business. As I am visually impaired, audio books are my life.
I've listened to the whole series and true to form the author produced another good one. Yes it's pretty thick with unbelievability but it suits this book s well. It was loads of fun and and full of action
I really enjoyed this series (and so did my husband). We would plug in my IPhone and listen to it together out on our boat. Was fun & narrated VERY WELL. In fact, don't think the series would have been what it was without him. He didn't do anything 'fancy.' Didn't even change his tone when switching characters but it WORKED.
Definately recommend it!
Light-hearted and fun
Deadpan sense of humor maybe? Hard to pin but he DID make the story!
Listen to them all
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.
Atta' boy Larry! (excerpt from the Ghost and Mr. Chicken)
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
Love sci-fi books, romace books. I love to get lost into a good book.
This book has action and romance. Love the story line.
I was shocked at every corner.
Yes he is one of the best narators!!!
Keep name that is on book.
If you like action, suspence, and wondering what is going to happen next, then listen to this book.
Just love these books. Correia's snarkiness and humor make all his books a lot of fun, but it truly comes out in his Monster Hunter series. This book, like the previous titles, requires you to stretch your imagination and belief in coincidences, but that does not detract from the enjoyment. This time Owen Pitt, MHI and many other monster hunters get to shoot up Las Vegas. More hints and evidence of a foreboding, horrible event coming down the pike appear and we delve into a few of the major characters' pasts.
Good stuff, Larry, good stuff.
yes, if you've followed the series up to this point, it's worth a read
Its a one of a kind
this is a stupid question
I ended up listening in one sitting, because it grabbed my attention
