Publisher's Summary

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.

Critic Reviews

"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)

Viva Las Vegas!

More Monsters, More Monster Hunters, Bigger Guns, Bigger Explosions and Velvet Elvis, Larry Correia and Oliver Wyman's latest Monster Hunter International collaboration is 16 hours and 35 minutes of adrenaline soaked action. Owen, Earl, Julie, Trip, Holly, Milo, Skippy, and Ed head to Vegas for the first ever International convention of monster hunters and Sin City will never be the same.

What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas but the larger than life antics of our favourite characters threaten to overwhelm this folklore maxim. Larry Correia supplies another gripping adventure interlaced with twists, back stories, and just a touch of romance while Oliver Wyman's performance breathes life into the characters and gives the story wings.

Monster Hunter Legion does a great job of tying the three previous ( International, Vendetta, and Alpha) novels together and lays the foundation for even greater adventures. This series just keeps getting better.

My only negative is waiting for the next book in the series.

No reason to stop loving this series

What made the experience of listening to Monster Hunter Legion the most enjoyable?

Oliver Wyman is a very enthusiastic and creative reader. Larry Correia continues his basic premise of hero's vs. villains in another inventive and original scenario.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I think all of the characters are cleverly created and unique, but don't you have to give 2 thumbs up to a stripper turned monster hunter?

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

This is a simple series of evil vs. good. Its strongest moments are when characters are unconditionally committed to the success of their mission, willing to risk it all, and there are many such situations.

Any additional comments?

Read the books in order for maximum enjoyment and understanding

Awesomeness Again

If there was a complaint about Mr. Correia's books, then it would be "why can't they be longer and release a bit faster...however, you can't ask for a more enjoyable "kickass" story (series) that just make the miles and time fly by. Keep 'em coming Larry! Can't wait to see what happens with Franks. And "Z" is just AWESOME!!!!

What happens in Vegas.........

This is one seriously kickass romp through Las Vegas in ways you won't see coming.
Larry tells a helluva story and Oliver really reads it well, top notch in all ways!

Great writing that gets even better with each book

This is not a book series I would have ever imagined I would be interested in - the covers and the concept - monsters, guns, good vs evil via imperfect but brave people . . . I was too snobby for this kind of book series . . . but no more.

The Monster Hunters International series is way too fun. The writing, the imagery, the intricate plots that manage to play out over time in the series of books . . . I'm glad I read the reviews and decided to give the first book a try, and then eventually come back to the second and continue on from there.

Some of the "educational" type of books I get on Audible take work and thinking and concentration. Fun books are a reward. Larry Correia's books are a lot of fun . . . yet I am still baffled that I am able to handle these books. When television commercials for scary movies would start I would quickly change the channel. Perhaps it is the undercurrent of humor and humanity and the viewpoint of heroism that makes even the *scary monsters* in these stories easier to handle. (Plus there's no creepy music like in the movie trailers)

Sometimes I wish more characters were a bit deeper with added descriptions and personality flaws. The mastery Larry Correia shows in describing settings or action or plot could be applied a little more to giving characters more dimension. Some of the British authors I've read earlier this year were outstanding at giving characters finer definition with a few nuanced words.

The humor and self-deprecating wit laced throughout take the edge off the scary monster parts. The author's writing tightens up with each book. The narrator makes it fun and even throws in some sounds that made me laugh out loud.

A fun diversion from real life. A tad addicting.

I love you, Monster Hunters!

If you could sum up Monster Hunter Legion in three words, what would they be?

Bad like that!

What does Oliver Wyman bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The nuances and fun - he made it real.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

No matter what, it can always get worse.

Any additional comments?

An incredibly exciting read.

More! More! More!

I miss the MHI team already. It surely sounds as though they have more work to do so I am hoping there will be more Monster Hunter International stories to come.
