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)
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
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!!
Awesome! I loved the last one in the series because Earl a bada$$ but there's just something about Z aka Owen that makes me smile. Dude is big, loud, sarcastic, ugly, strong, loyal, resilient, flawed, incredibly funny, modest.............my kind of hero! He is by far out of ALL the books I've read/listened to my favorite "hero". As usual Correia does an excellent job with the characters. Everyone is complex and it is easy to cheer on the good guys and hate the bad guys. He weaves fantasy and reality together so well that you can almost believe what you're reading!
The plot in this installment is wonderful. I like it when the whole gang is together and missed that in the last book. It is "intricate" without being overly complex. Narrator as usual is awesome. Each voice is distinct and the minute he starts reading in a voice you know who that character is. You cannot go wrong with this one. If you strayed from the series because of the last book taking a hard left turn and only focusing on Earl, this one will redeem the Monster Hunter series. If you haven't read any of them stop right now, click on the series link and download them all. You will NOT regret. This is in my top three series. LOVE it! (since book 5 isn't out yet I'm now reading Correia's Grimnoir Chronicles - love this one too).
Oliver does a great job as usual
The only problem with this book is book 5 isnt out yet!!
Enjoyable book. If you arent hooked by the first chapter then you have something wrong with you.
Z get into his usally trouble but works it out with just a few looming terrifing things coming:)
I really enjoy Larry Correia, and you probably do too if you are on the fourth book of the series. The Monster Hunter series does not not take a huge amount of brain power to enjoy, but these books are well written. I think this book stands up as well as any in this series. The narration is also excellent. Thanks Mr. Correia, and I cant wait till the next book.
