Publisher's Summary

The no-holds-barred final entry in the Monster Hunter Memoirs series from New York Times best-selling authors Larry Correia and John Ringo. 

"This is New Orleans." That mantra had rung in Chad Gadenier's ears since his first day working in the Big Easy. Everything was different in New Orleans. The food. The climate. The monsters. Even the shadowy and reprehensible MCB was different. But that's just the beginning. 

The real reason New Orleans is so different is a larval Great Old One growing day by day in power and just about ready to pop. If Chad can't convince "the powers that be" to get involved, not only New Orleans, but the entire world, is going to fall under the power of the nastiest of nasties. 

Now on the outs with the US government and in exile from his usual job of saving the world, Chad must rally the forces of light against the coming darkness. The problem is one guy with a sword and a sub-gun isn't going to solve this one. 

Fortunately, Chad's made a few friends over the years - and the Fey hate Old Ones as much as God's people, and they're not about to give up this world without a fight. 

If the saints don't come marching in on this one...there won't be a final battle; there will be a final massacre. Now, where'd he put that number for the ditzy Fey princess?

Enjoyable!!

Sadly in the latter part of this book anyone who's listened/read the prior two books will either start to think that something is wrong with the recording or that they started listening to a previous book. As far as I can tell from memory, the part where Chad is in England gets copied more or less verbatim from the earlier story. I got a "LashUp" kind of feeling from this third book. I do not know if its just due to the editing or something else but its present and the repeat of the European Gnole story didn't help this in the slightest.. On the whole thou I must say that I love these books and find myself saddened that its only a trilogy collaboration.

Great ending to the story?

Correia and Ringo... what a match up. Enjoyable listen as always with Wyman reading.

I wasn't sure how they were going to wrap up a character like Chad who had been hyped throughout the whole series without any kind of a let down, but they not only managed to wrap up the series effectively, but also to leave me waiting for what is to come next. Great ending to the trilogy... or is it an ending? Or just a trilogy? Damn you Correia and Ringo, now I'm waiting to see what comes next!

Consistently awesome!

All three books were great! I highly recommend. John Ringo's writing brings a welcome flair to the MHIverse, and this series ties things together with the rest of Larry Correia series very tight.

Well Done!!!

So I guess what some people are complaining about is that the book is either too cerebral or not enough. I saw the storyline as a predictable (heck, one could avoid sunburn in the Sahara with the amount of foreshadowing in this book) but enjoyable ride with Chad in New Orleans, to the end of the novel which one character tells you was the end of Chad.

Spoiler Alert


****

Ok, here’s the one thing. I am So peeved at the ending. I mean, wouldn’t Chad know what he was dating FFS? He’s been a great hunter for a while now. And daughter? Of god. Don’t devolve into freaking melodrama here. So no more deep thinking boys. I don’t want you to be writing only about people who are dead.



which you knew he survived if

filler

there is a section of this book that is verbatim extracted from a earlier book in this series to fill space. now don't give me wrong I like the book but if you run out of ideas don't just steal a chapter from another book and expect no one to notice.

hope this collaboration continues...

I'm not normally a fan of any author writing about a world created by another. This collaboration is truly the exception. Together Larry Correia and John Ringo have created a hero that belongs with MHI. And Oliver Wyman continues to narrate these stories with incredible skill. Well done gentleman, looking forward to many more books.

Fabulous

Great book!! Great ending to the series . I was disappointed there wasn’t a scene at Thorton’s funeral with his mother. I would still say it’s a great book.

Was in tears on Chad's death

The author and the narrator had me in tears in listening to Chad's death. It was heart breaking.
I hate the author for killing Chad.
I mean, wouldn't it better to have retire him, and maybe bring him back in one of Pitt's novels as maybe a consultant ?
