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 race to see who can bag the mysterious creature first. Only there is far more to this particular case than meets the eye, and as Hunters fall prey to their worst nightmares, Owen Zastava Pitt and the staff of Monster Hunter International have to stop an ancient god from turning Sin City into a literal hell on earth.

why does Edward have a chicken?!
great book, well narrated. characters just getting better. lovely mix of humour with the savagery and horror. only tiny criticism is the narrator struggles a bit with British / Australian accents, but that is an act of pedantry on my account.

What A Shock...
I would've never thought it possible for me to love a series of books with lots of guns, violence and monsters.
Now, I can't get enough.
And I'm kind of unhappy that I've just purchased this on the 2nd day of it's release and now have to wait for the next installment.
Personally, I'm holding Larry Correia and Oliver Wyman responsible; Correia weaves a fast-paced interesting tale that's surprisingly almost plausible and Oliver Wyman simply brings the men AND the women in these stories to life in a way that audiobook readers hope for with every download.
One of the best aspects of this series is that the characters are so very, very different from myself that there is very little for me to identify with and despite that, they're very real, down to earth people who could be (and probably are) my neighbors. I find myself empathizing with them and cheering them on whether they're dealing with end-of-the-world-monsters or bureaucrats. In the midst of unusual and/or challenging situations these characters are still just men and women dealing with whatever life is handing them and struggling to do the best they can; some are heroic, and some are evil-kind of like what we run into everyday. Yet it's heartening to think that there's an organization that looks for "flexible minds" and trusts in the diversity and innate humanity of most individuals. Plus I just like a story that includes werewolves and dragons based on a gun-nut accountant and his Southern Belle art lover wife who kicks ass and carries big guns. Now THAT''S quite a love story!
What I didn't like about this book? Other than the fact that it wasn't long enough and I wanted more Earl? Nothing. The story offers a compelling take on an interesting point in history; we learn a little more about an organization that doesn't officially exist as well as learn a little more about its nefarious head. We get to see the repercussions of past adventures for members of MHI as well as for those who are collateral damage like Mosh (David). This story explores the fears of the hunters and as a writers device it's brilliant-we get the back story for characters we've come to love and we also encounter characters we thought we'd lost forever while getting more information about Owen and Julie. This is solid story-telling from Correia; the story may drive the characters but it's the people he's created and that Wyman gives life and substance to that always leaves me wanting more.

What happens in Vegas dies in Vegas
If you could sum up Monster Hunter Legion in three words, what would they be?
massive butt kicking
What was one of the most memorable moments of Monster Hunter Legion?
I like when they find a dragon running things underneath one of the casions. This kind of came out of left field.
What about Oliver Wyman’s performance did you like?
he has a wide range of voices and captures the humor and emotion of the series quite well.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
Without spoiling anything I was sad to see a character from the previous book die. It was interesting to see Pitt have to grow up a bit and accept the consequences of orders he gives.
Any additional comments?
Great book and I can't wait for the next as it will be from the POV of Agent Franks.
