The Upside:

Monsters, Minions & Marauders is a source book of Fantasy monsters. It details eighty-nine creatures, plus options for variants and templates that can be added to give well over a hundred unique combinations of fantasy creatures for your adventurers to fight.

The book is cleanly organized, and very easy to read. the illustrations that come with each entry are very well done. The contents run from the standard fantasy fair of various giants, dragons, orc and goblins to other more unique creatures such as the Banewolf, Butatsch, Orobon and many other unusual things.

There are two parts of the book that stand out - and they aren't write ups of creatures. The first is the Summary Table at the very back. This is a quick list of pertinent combat stats for every major monster entry in the book. The other is the Appendix that has a number of Package Templates that can be applied to any monster, or even used by PCs.

Other nice touches include a section of prebuilt Human Adversaries for a quick set of NPCs should the GM need some. And many monster entries, notable for sentient species, come with an entry on a notable member of that species, though these entries are specific to the Turakian Age Campaign Setting they are easily adaptable to any game. These entries of individual monsters make this particular Fantasy Creature book stand out above others.

The Hero System Bestiary is an excellent companion book to this.

The Downside:

The first downside is more of a nit pick than an actual detraction from the book. There are nine monster entries that do not have any picture to go with them, personally I find art work for a creature book to be an essential aspect.
