Monster Hunter Legion
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
Monster hunters from all over the world gathered in Las Vegas for a conference. As an additional bonus there was a show of new and experimental weapons practically across the road from the hotel the hunters stayed, so nobody in the right mind wanted to miss this.
Thus the story began without big excitement: a big group of people from Monster Hunter International came to get some food in all-you-can-eat buffet, ...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
There's a teeny bit of on-the-page romance but it pretty much takes a back-seat to the ongoing saga of the dedicated men and women who make up Monster Hunters International.
The world is complex, the characters are compelling, and their mission to save the world is - start to finish - hardcore action and excitement and peril. Epic. Simply epic!!!
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
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
I absolutely loved it this time around and has thus bumped up my rating to reflect it, from four to five stars <3 I liked it last time as well, I just enjoyed it more this time I think... It was so much fun revisiting this World and these characters from mostly Owen's POV again ^__^
I also greatly enjoy Oliver Wyman's narration of these audiobooks, I highly recommend checking out really any audiobook with him, he's one of my favourite ...more
And i want to know what Strider is and to see Franks wipe the floor with him. What a jerk!
Good read, per usual. On to the next!
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
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
The beginning was pretty rough, as the heroes attend a monster-hunting conference and MHI meets its competitors. One of the biggest annoyances I have with the series is the running sentiment that anyone that's not with MHI (either government or other companies) is either evil or painfully incompetent. That sentiment got cranked up to 11 as MHI butts heads with a rival company right out the gate. The over-macho chest-pounding really turned me off, but quickly ...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
As a side note there seemed to be an uptick of profanity in this intallment. This doesn't bother me per se but it might others.
The latest Monster Hunter novel is "Monster Hunter Legion." It continues the series reprising the roles of most of the characters you've gotten a chance to meet in the previous novels. What's cool about this novel is the unique way Correia has found to recycle some well-loved characters from previous ...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
So I've been waiting for the release of Monster Hunter Legion for months now, and having read it, now all I want is the next book! This book is great! Z is maturing and coming to grips with being The Chosen One. After starring in Monster Hunter Alpha, Earl is present but not on screen much, but we get cameo appeara ...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
The entire series is based on action + supernatural horror with generous doses of laugh out loud dialogue.
Several things deeply impress me about the series as a whole;
1. Characters are remarkably consistent yet grow and morph without altering the principles which make them so very interesting ...more
Owen “Big Z” Pitt, Earl Harbinger, Julie, Milo, Holly, Trip, Skippy the orc and more of the Monster Hunter International (MHI) crew are in Las Vegas for the first International Conference of Monster Hunting Professionals. There are teams of hunters from all over the world and at first there is a sense of competition, especially from some of the newer, upstart companies. Earl and the team suspect that there is increased monster activity and they begin to c ...more
