....and was very happy with the purchase. I am the type of reader that wants to start a series from the beginning and not jump in the middle. That is why I bought this omnibus and gave it a go. Having never read any of Mr. Correia's other books, I had no idea what to expect. I found myself sucked in from the first page, and couldn't put it down. The action is great, the character development is full, the wry sense of humor kept me laughing out loud, and I want more. Having just read 1191 pages, I would normally switch gears and read something a bit diffrent just to change things up. But I can't wait for Sept. 4th when the fourth book is set to come out. For anyone who loves a good action story, flavored with humor, explosions, revenge, tragedy, and fantastic characters, you should read this.

If you like 80's action movies, horror movies, guns, comedy, and awesome, then you need this book. Amazing value when you are getting all three of the first Monster Hunter books. Imagine a Schwarzenegger movie on steroids and crack, then throw in some monsters and some of the funniest writing that I have ever read. Thank you Mr. Correia for writing these books. You complete me.

This is the first three books of the "Monster Hunters" series. If, like Larry, you like b-grade horror movies and guns, you'll love this series. In a world where monsters are real & the government is keeping them secret, Monster Hunters International can be thought of as being along the lines of Blackwater with silver bullets. Great action scenes, compelling characters, and enough humor to keep things from being too grim. A great read!

Not my go to genre. Great writing and plot sucked me in...totally. An irreverent look at monsters and hunting them ... what's not to like?

Great stuff. If you like guns, & monsters, & shooting guns at monsters, Larry Correia is the writer for you! He spins a great yarn, and keeps the story rolling along so smooth & fast you hate to put it down.

"Monster Hunter International." Owen Pitt wants the American dream, but instead got Monster Hunter International when his boss tried to bite off his head; in self-defense he pushed the miscreant out of a fourteenth floor story window. MHI offers scar faced Owen a position with their firm as monster eradicator. The Cursed One returns with an ancient vendetta to destroy the world. As time runs out on mankind, the rookie faces the Cursed One's undead horde, feral Feds, a ghost sharing his skull, and his beloved's cursed family without hazardous duty pay.

"Monster Hunter Vendetta." Having deployed a bottom line solution to the Cursed One's war, Pitt learns The Dread Overlord rages over what Owen arranged in his recent victory. The monster chieftain orders his supporters to bring him Mr. Pitt for special torture as saving humanity is an unacceptable defense. The Church of the Temporary Mortal Condition led by the Shadow Man stalks Owen as a perfect sacrifice to gain favor with the Old Ones.
.
"Monster Hunter Alpha." MHI Chief Earl Harbinger conceals from his subordinates that he is a werewolf who dedicated his life to protect mankind just like his dad the greatest Hunter ever. Earl learns ruthless former KGB werewolf Nikolai killed a deputy sheriff in Copper Lake, Michigan. The MHI leader realizes that he and Stalin's favorite agent must hunt each other until only one is left howling. However, Earl is ignorant of why his foe is in the Wolverine State.

The omnibus reprint of three MHI cases are entertaining satirical urban fantasies that deploys plenty of hyperbole to lampoon how society deals with "monsters". Pitt makes a more fascinating lead than Harbinger, but still each entry is fun.

I got book 1 for free and got hooked! So buying this 3 book set made the most since price wise! I am not sure if the next two books are the series end since there are several over arching plots happening. Very good reading time and I will be purchasing the next two. This series is unique because as I said there is an overarching plot in the series so far and the main plot in each book(s). The author must have the whole series outlined really well since the story(use) mesh really well with same characters but they are not always the main ones in the book. I look forward to where the next two books take overarching as well as the next two books main plots. They look to be good reading. The cost is higher than most of my buying but since I know from this book(s) the value should be worth it.

(IMPORTANT NOTE: These are -3- book reviews, which I include in chronological order.)

BOOK 1: MONSTER HUNTER INTERNATIONAL

What I would have liked to know before I bought this book. (no spoilers)

1. What type of book is it: adventure, action, drama, etc? This book is a military urban fantasy action packed story from beginning to end. The tiny bits of melodrama are generally simplistic, cliché and secondary. It will be easy to endure them. I make a distinction between melodrama and drama, thus, the bits of drama aren't bad.

2. What is the story about, in general? The story is about Owen Pitts, an extremely martially capable man that finally gets his chance at war when he gets thrown into the Monster Hunter business.

3. What/Who is the target audience? The target audience is young adult males, those who appreciate good weapon descriptions (me, guilty) and fast military action fans. I don't think this story targets older adults very well.

4. Is there character development? Nope. The main protagonist is two-dimensional. He has a particular attitude, manner of acting and perception. He doesn't evolve beyond them. He, literally, was introduced with all the necessary basic characteristics to become a Monster Hunter. He's also a bit like Dirty Harry in the ego sense.

Most other characters fill a rigid role within the story without deviation. Thankfully, except for one character, that for a good percentage of the book is a flat one dimensional stooge, they aren't completely two dimensional. One secondary character has an extensive background and detailed emotional facets. In fact, said character is even -more- detailed than the protagonist! Go figure.

5. Are the characters likable?
