About the Author
Larry Correia is an award-winning competitive shooter, a movie-prop-gun master and, yes, an accountant by day–but an urban noir adventure master by night. He is the creator of the Wall Street Journal and New York Times bestselling Monster Hunter series as well as urban fantasy hardboiled blockbuster saga, the Grimnoir Chronicles. Correia is very tall, very bald, and lives in Utah with his wife and family.

Let's start with the good. Pretty much every character is distinct and interesting with their own personalities and motivations. The fact that Correia can create so many characters without them feeling like clones is a testament to his abilities as a writer. In my review of the previous book, Monster Hunter Alpha, I complained that the female characters are all drawn from the same butt-kicking-action-girl cloth with little to differentiate them. I'll have to retract that. They may all be butt-kicking-action-girls but the female characters in this series really do have distinct personalities with tremendous depth. Holly Newcastle is a perfect example. She may come off as your typical stripper-turned-killer cliche but she really does come into her own as the series progresses, especially in this book. Correia really can do characters.
The plot is ridiculous, awesome fun that never lets up until the very end. There are twists and turns that are genuinely surprising without feeling like cheats. In addition, Correia pulls together a number of threads from previous novels and connects them in interesting ways. Again, I can't say too much without giving things away. Though I will say that dragons make an appearance which isn't really a spoiler because it's there on the cover. Suffice to say that the plot goes in interesting directions while giving juicy hints of the cosmic forces manipulating things like pieces on a chessboard.
In the end, Correia's Monster Hunter series continues to impress. Correia has likely topped his previous MHI books with Monster Hunter Legion. The action is great. The mysteries are tantalizing and the characters fun. What more could you possibly want from a book series about private companies hunting monsters?
5 out of 5 stars.
I was a little trepidatious at the start, because well the first two books very exciting engrossing stories, there was a minor aspect of the writing that bothered me, which was not present in the third book. The third book was also a different point of view, and so I had a small worried that by going back two Pitts POV he might go back to having the weird abrupt transitions.... But to my delight this book was smooth as silk, or maybe ectoplasmic nightmare blood slime, with increased action, more characters good and bad, getting to see some in a new light, improved character depth all around which is subliminally what takes a story from merely good to great (whew, well done with the feels), and of course, more monsters 😁.
I Love creatures & monsters, so of course something called Monster Hunters caught my attention. And boy has Correia rewarded us, with sprinklings of regular monster tropes ( many hilariously tweaked & mishmashed with various subcultures) , double handfuls of rare and new creatures & horrors, and giant big bads starting in the very first book (seriously, that kind of major world-ending other-world old one is generally the big bad of the whole shebang that the series leads up to.... But LC epically kicks off to outer space , and luckily for us everything since has not let down. )
good times. thank you, Mr Correia, may you have many more stories for us all.
I just recently purchased this book (and the rest of the series) for a re-read since it has been several years since it came out and I read it the first time. The story holds up even on a re-read. Sure I know whats coming, somewhat, as it has been about 5 years since the first read. But even so, the story and characters are compelling and as the series progresses Larry Correia becomes more polished as a writer.
Ok, so cheesey headline aside. This is another great book in the MHI series. Larry has a great way of taking a story to in new and interesting directions to keep it from becoming stale, repetitive, or bogged down in fluff. The whole MHI team comes together for some series action and monster killing while OZP's character and personal story continue to grow.
