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)
If you are looking for a fun guy read this in it. Just pick it up read and go for a ride. No deep thinking, nothing to analyze just relax and follow along.

This is written a lot like books 1 and 2, with a very good story and complicated monsters. The only thing that bothers me is his books are getting shorter! I like a good long story.
Most of the characters make an appearance, the underlying story of who the really big bad monster behind all of this becomes a little more clear, and lots and lots of crazy monsters pop out of every corner. Yes, even a dragon! Owen and the other hunters have to find out what the main monster is and how to kill it, while secret government agencies refuse to help, even though this monster may be the fault of one of those agencies. Franks show some surprising initiative. I think my favorite part might be all the complaining about the ice sculpture, though.
Unfortunately, Correia has gone back to having a major cliff hanger at the end, and since book 5 isn't out yet, I find myself having to be patient. I hope he writes fast. And makes the stories last a little longer!
This was really good. But it wasn't able to match the "epicness" of the second book. Also some of the characters i really enjoyed from the 3rd book were underused. I felt that the ending felt really rushed. I don't really understand why each book in the series is getting shorter and shorter.
I was a 'readaholic' for most of my life. I started crochet and other hobbies. That took away from my reading time. I discovered audio books at the library. That set me off. now, that I am older my eyes make it too difficult to read. So I now am a very diligent audio book listener!
Fun & interesting.
Yes I would recommend this audiobook. The only problem is that this a series that follows each other kinda close. It should follow book 01 for better understanding.
His voice fitted the main character as I imagined.
I enjoyed this book,
I'm a Wife, Mom and I own my own store. I love books but have precious little time to read. Audible reads them for me!
At the top! This is one of my favorite 'new' series!
The main character is fabulous! And how he deals with the monsters, sometimes its just hilarious!
The narrator is perfect for this role.
Hello, my name is Teresa and I'm an addict.
Gotta love the creativity of Larry Correia, he takes you in the opposite way you think he will and he comes up with some bizarre monsters. Then he takes the plain old boring monsters of everyday and makes them have the crazy human traits that we all have or know somebody who has them. Traits that we love to watch reality shows about. I was glad that I read the Tanya, Princess of the Elves from his web site before I read this book. It's a short story of how Edward and Tanya met, a fun read.
Milo of course. I like making thinks so i can connect with him. Z as well since im a gun nut as well
not spoiling it.
I haven't read it in book form, so I can't say.
Fast pace, not a dull moment!
Made me laugh in parts, overall it was a exciting story to listen too. Hard to stop listening to it!
All his monster hunter books are excellent!!
I'm a teacher, and it's my policy to NOT give any 100%s for work done by anyone especially me. ( I figure there's always room for improvement.) This series is entertaining, just think about the scene as in an alternate reality. If you're interested about more of my thinking, read my review of "Monster Hunters International". Thank you.
