Monster Hunter Legion (Monster Hunter International #4)
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 ra...more
Get this series. Start at book 1 (Monster Hunter International) and follow the series. As I've said before, this is prime, 100% grade A brain candy. It's an action treat for lovers of Urban Fantasy, Action, Horror, thrillers and so many crossover genre areas that it will appeal to a great many readers and groups of readers. And a ...more
Yes! Dragons! Not gonna lie. I've been waiting for one of these UF series to whip out one of these bad boys! While it only has a minor role, Larry Correia continues to masterfully introduce us to the monsters and mythical beast we all know and love and at the same time give them their own MHI spin.
This installment feels as if it is a transition book in the series. It is different from the others as there is less action and the majority of the book i ...more
The fourth book in the Monster Hunter International Series by Larry Corriea is no joke. It's every bit as much fun as the first 3, maybe better than the last two, but, it's too close to call. The crew's back, and, yes, they pissed off another supernatural, monstrous and wicked evil monster being. I mean, c'mon Pitt! Haven't you met a supernatural being that you didn't piss off?
Here we go again, and this time, ...more
Deep Breath? Check.
Shoulder Role? Check.
Curb Excitement? Hell No!
LET THE GAMES BEGIN! We have monsters (of course) threatening the first ever Monster Hunter Convention. And where else do you have a convention of this magnitude? Las Vegas of course. And the strip will never been the same.
What can I say. It was good :D...okay great...okay freaking fabulously fun. Dinner buffets gone awry, bodies flying, hotel rooms that turn into vengeful landscapes that birth night ...more
I needed to read it. Had to read it... Now now now! But what about the other book? I can't just abandon it... I should probably finish it first, and then move on to Monster Hunter Legion once my plat ...more
First, I love that the story is occasionally told from the perspective of other hunters. I sincerely hope that we get a short story or novella, heck even a full novel, from Holly's perspective! Mosh is also quite fun.
Secondly, the story races along, decadently ...more
The earlier installments have often reminded me of The Black Company in the way it was written, this is certainly not a bad thing mind you as I was a huge fan of that saga, but it was something that would never truly break into the mainstream.
Monster Hunters International always had that same sort of feel to me, mainly because ...more
What is Larry's style? Why it's SHEER FUN. It's scary creatures and hilariously snarky dialogue and things going KABOOM! It's orcs sacrificing chickens to make their helicopter go faster! It's velvet Elvis paintings and trailer trash elves and heavily armed men wearing body armor over their fuzzy footie pajamas and chain smoking werewolves st ...more
It's not just a romp with stock characters. I think the author does a good job of making his characters individuals with realistic reactions to their experiences. I particularly ...more
Nemesis is the fifth installment in the Monster Hunter series (think Buffy the Vampire Slayer interpreted by The Expendables) and it is chock-full of rip-roaring action. Correia is a self-taught author who di ...more
Monster Hunter Legion takes place largely in Las Vegas during a convention of monster eradication companies. This was a great premise, IMO, because we'd read in earlier books about other monster hunting companies, but we really hadn't met any worthy of the vocation. So getting competitive, slightly insane mercenaries together for a weekend in Vegas is just a lot of fun.
However, it also necessitated a kind of clunky, outline-like beginning to get all t ...more
What’s more fun than hanging out with Owen “Big Z” Pitt, Earl Harbinger, Julie, Milo, Holly, Trip, Mosh Pitt, and Skippy the orc at the MHI compound in rural Alabama? How about MHI meeting up with teams from all over the world at a monster hunter conference in Las Vegas? And how about if that ancient Lovecraftian god that Big Z pissed off three books ago decides to unleash his wrath right about now? And how about if those incompetent ...more
I listened to this on audibook and I highly recommend listening to this series on audiobook. The books are incredibly well read and lots of fun to listen to. I read the first couple books in the series and have listened to the last two. I actually enjoy lis ...more
I cannot impress just how much I love these books! My little love affair began with Monster Hunter International and I'm happy to write that it is not over yet! Wooot!
I was sad thinking that this was going to be the last MHI and as I got closer to the end of this read I got excited because there is no way its over.
I just love the writing style. I loved the badassedness of Z and I don't care if he "always wins" that's what I love about him. I love his smart ass attitude a ...more
Larry Correia's "Monster Hunter" series is one of my very favorites. Not since Harry Potter have I cared this much about the next book in any ongoing tale. A few days ago, I snagged the ebook version from Baen and happily dived into Monster Hunter Legion.
This installment gets off to a bit of a rough start. Owen and the other Monster Hunters are in Vegas for the first-ever monster-hunting convention, which brings people from all ...more
We have visitied Las Vegas several times and we prefer the casino area called "South Point" although the older area that is termed the "Fremont Street Experience" with the light show is not to be missed!
I felt deep sympathy for Management in this novel because of the calamitous destruction of Th ...more
For anyone who hasn't heard of this series, let me just say that the cover pretty much sums it up. There is ...more
You could have told me up front that the book was about all of the monster hunters in the world getting locked up in a Vegas hotel with a nightmare monster, including MHI, and would have been excited.
What actually presented itself just felt rather hollow. Bad guys showed up, ...more
2) Genre: Paranormal Fantasy
3) Synopsis: Owen Zastava Pitt is back and he is at a Monster Hunter Convention. Life in Vegas should be gambling and buffets but of course the world is about to end and only 'The Chosen One' will be able to save the day.
4) Feelings: I love the Monster Hunter series. I truly do. Owen Pitt is one of my favorite characters of all time. This book has everything a growing boy could want. Guns (lots of guns), explosions, battles, mysterious creat ...more
In all seriousness, I like Owen. He's a decent dude, trying to do his job, be a kind and loving husband, son, and friend. Oh, and save the world. Because that's what a dude does.
That is definitely the case with this book and, indeed, the whole Monster Hunter International serie ...more
