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)
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.
This is a great series. I don't know how Correia manages to write so prolifically or so well, but he does. The narrator is fantastic. I wish them both the best.
this series for me as taken on a newer and more adventurous dynamic focusing on other characters and experiences not surrounding the main character Owen but supporting him and creating layers in plot characterization giving more dept to both the good guys and the enemy, that sometimes shows up in situation within and without the monster hunters group. I think there was a lot more magic involved in this books than the others combine; but not to the degree that you lost the Ex SEAL gunman walking around with doomsday arsenals, the physical rough a tousle of men being men.
Avid reader and author of fantasy novels.
This series is amazing! Best if you read the first three books first so you dont miss any of the essential back story. The story of "Z" is amazing. I hope this is not the final installment as I truly enjoy these stories. I would recommend this series to anyone who enjoys action with some fantasy elements. These are well written and have the right amount of realism and fantasy to make a fun and exicting listen. The narrator is amazing! The voices given to the characters have become the only way I can imagine these characters. This is a fun read!
Monster Hunter Legion takes up where Alpha left off and takes the entire Monster Hunter Universe to a whole new level by expanding and adding personalities to what it means to be a monster hunter.
Correia kept his focus where it belongs, on the perspective of his first hero, Owen Pitt.
However, and as always, the most outstanding supporting character in all of Correia's books are the toys and firearms he uses to wreak mayhem on monsters everywhere.
I can't wait to see where he takes MHI next.
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
Julie covering Owen when he was trying to get to the top of the Last dragon.
Can't pick one.
Monster Hunter...Just livin' the dream
When does the next one come out?
Yes its fast and fun.
When Owen meets Management
He does them all very well. I couldnt pick a favorite. He even gets Skippy right
The whole series is great. I hope he can keep these up!!!
I recommend it, it is a really good book and I never want to stop listening to do anything else.
Once again, Larry Correia has taken us on a wild ride with Owen, Julie, Earl and the rest of MHI. All the characters have grown and evolved throughout the series and more of Owen's past is revealed, making each book fresh and unpredictable. I found myself laughing out loud and gasping in surprise as I listened. The only bad thing is having to wait for the next book in the series...guess I just have to listen to them all over again until then!
The reader slipped in a few places, using the wrong character voice, otherwise I would have given 5 stars throughout. Regardless, Wyman is pitch perfect in inflection, timing and character personality.
Warning: You MUST read this series in order!!
