Publisher's Summary

Agent Franks of the U.S. Monster Control Bureau is a man of many parts - parts from other people, that is. Franks is nearly seven feet tall and all muscle. He's nearly indestructible. Plus he’s animated by a powerful alchemical substance and inhabited by a super-intelligent spirit more ancient than humanity itself. Good thing he’s on our side. More or less.
Sworn to serve and protect the United States of America from all monsters by one of the country’s founding fathers, Franks has only one condition to the agreement: no matter what the government learns of him, no matter what is discovered concerning his odd physiology or the alchemy behind the elixir that made him, the government is never, ever allowed to try and make more like him. Such is absolutely forbidden and should the powers-that-be do so, then the agreement is null and void.
Project Nemesis: in a secret location, using sophisticated technology and advanced genetic engineering, the director of the very agency Franks works for is making more like him. And the director is not content with making one. Nope, he’s making thirteen.Now all bets are off, and Hell hath no fury like a monster betrayed. Particularly if that monster happens to be an undying killing machine capable of taking out vampires and werewolves with one hand tied behind his back.

A bit of a disappointment

Would you try another book written by Larry Correia or narrated by Oliver Wyman?

Yes, although this was bad previous books were ok


What will your next listen be?

Out of the black evan currie


What do you think the narrator could have done better?

The narrator was Good considering the material he had to work with


Could you see Monster Hunter Nemesis being made into a movie or a TV series? Who would the stars be?

No It is a (POV) story most likely as a precursor to the next monster hunter (MHI) story at best it was a short story expanded into this novel .


Any additional comments?

This was a disappointment as it was meant to be a continuation of the previous monster hunter legion but was a diversion off the trail of the main story in the previous book which was about MHI and this was a POV of peripheral characters . Even as a stand alone it was badly written and could have been condensed in to half the time and length ( I know a guy has got to eat) but he could have written the main story and this would have been either the back end or a short prelude. The narrator sounded tired that must have been because of the material he had to work with . This is the worst of the series and i have listen to every one .

It's All About Franks!!

The fifth book in the Monster Hunter International series and like Monster Hunter Alpha, we step away from the main group and focus on one character, Agent Franks of the MCB. A goverment employed monster who for centuries has fought to protect the human race from other monsters.

Each chapter begins with Franks explaining at bit more of his origins, the book itself tells you all about the deal he made to live in this world and the Contract he made with the US goverment not to try to reproduce him.

That Contract is broken by Special Task Force Unicorn (STFU) a shady part of the goverment and Franks and a band of loyal MCB agents have to save the World from the consequences of the breach with the help of some familiar faces.

As with all the Larry Correia books i've read, there is lots of action, funny one liners, and all the gun details in the world.

I LOVED IT, LOVED IT, LOVED IT!!!
