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 .

    "Great book but....."

    Love the MHI series but am getting very fed up with the political bashing. So you don't like the current administration, we get it. Please move on and get back to the story.
    I love these books because they are an easy listen with a fun and paced story.
    Just getting very fed up with the authors political views being rammed down your throats.

    Would you listen to Monster Hunter Nemesis again? Why?

    Yes, From time to time you need to read about a badass handing out Grade A ass whoopings.


    What other book might you compare Monster Hunter Nemesis to, and why?

    I would compare this book to the second terminator film more than another book. Ultimate Killing machine


    Which character – as performed by Oliver Wyman – was your favourite?

    Franks the main character


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    franks constant checking himself not to kill the annoying people as he cant be bothered with the paper work,.

    "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!!!

    "Nonstop action start to finish!"

    Larry Correa has done it again! This latest installment oh the Monster Hunter series is every bit as good as previous books & like previous books, leaves the reader anxious for more! The Narration is superb, as always & brings the reader into the story. I am hoping that someone in Hollywood decides to make movies out of the series, but I hope they use the author to write the screen version so they maintain the integrity of the characters & the stories!!

    "Still loving it"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Monster Hunter Nemesis to be better than the print version?

    I really enjoy listening to the audio books. Great use of time in the car!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Owen Zustava Pitt is the best. Love the character and his irreverent attitude.


    What does Oliver Wyman bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Oliver Wyman is a great narrator. Great voice and adds a sense of humor to the character.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I have loved all of the Monster Hunter books. Fun characters and good story.

    "really fun book."

    I really enjoyed listening to this book. I would have rated it higher but the voice he does for Agent Franks kinda bothered me at first. but I got over it pretty fast. i would definitely recommend this book to anyone who is into monstersn, guns, and books with some humour in it.

    "Love the story of Franks"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Monster Hunter Nemesis to be better than the print version?

    Have not read the paper version.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Monster Hunter Nemesis?

    The elevator scene with Franks and his agents or the aftermath scene in the basement where of MHI after Franks and a certain werewolf fought.


    Have you listened to any of Oliver Wyman’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    All of Oliver Wyman's performances are consistently excellent.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I very much enjoy how Larry Correia has the core monster hunter books and now two other books focusing on other main characters.


    Any additional comments?

    Very good use of a credit. Mit is fascinating how Franks has evolved from the very first hospital scene with Pitt until now.

    Story
    "I thought it would be my least favorite of MHI"
    If you could sum up Monster Hunter Nemesis in three words, what would they be?

    Franks punches everything


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Its hard to not love Agent Franks. He routinely only expresses one emotion, annoyance. He gets shot a couple times, that really annoys him. He gets into a fist fight with the head general of hell, that really annoys him. A couple gnomes threaten to "cap him" he gets really annoyed. (Franks with gnomes is a real treat).


    What about Oliver Wyman’s performance did you like?

    Oliver Wyman is one of the best narrators out there. I've been impressed on how he gives each character and creature a unique and easily identifiable accent and voice. The difference between "gangsta gnomes" and the deep growl of werewolves to a southern belle vampire shows how dynamic and unique his range of narration to go.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Owen's cameo appearance was perfect. I don't usually laugh out loud when I listen or read a book, however his upgrade to Frank had me laughing to the point of tears.


    Any additional comments?

    When I first heard that this book wasn't going to be about MHI but about Franks I was a little disappointed. Franks never seemed to interest me all that much, and I figured his backstory wouldn't be extremely different from the standard fare I grew up with. Despite this, MH Nemesis has become easily my favorite of the series for several reason.

    First: Franks' back story is both at once familiar and completely new. He is Frankenstein's Monster, but he is a lot more than that, and his backstory is very closely tied in with the overall major plot arch that has been developing since book 2.

    Second: Franks himself went from being a gruff but semi likable menace, to a truly lovable, but altogether bad_$$. Seriously, if Godzilla showed up in MH land, Franks would just punch him back to the ocean, all the while complaining on how giant lizards really piss him off.

    Third: Characters that were villainous or at best morally gray, such as Franks, Grant, and Meyers are shown to be true heroes. I'm really impressed when authors do this. Grant goes from a selfish prick to a pretty solid guy, Meyers is shown to be an almost paternal character, and Franks is a more lobotomized form of Pit. The author portrays this shift in characters not as a growth or shift in character personality, but just by showing a different side to the character. It makes me interested in rereading the rest of the series, now that I know how good Franks and Meyers actually are.

    All together this book brings all the best that MH has become. You have huge bloody fights, tons of "gun porn" big monsters, supernatural crisis, and Franks punting gnomes into another state.

    "Just keeps getting better"

    What can I say? From the start I was blown away. Mr. Correia has finally decided to shine the spotlight on the King of All Things Classified, the agent of destruction and my favourite character since book#2, agent Franks.
    We are treated to a front seat as he cuts a swath of destruction and mayhem, the likes of which have never been seen in the already over-the-top series and it is glorious. The author has a gift for spinning an undercurrent of clever humour into his narrative so scenes where Franks indulges in incredibly brutal acts of violence against his other-worldly foes are not only shockingly awesome but gleefully entertaining :D. I don't think I've EVER been subjected to such levels of savagery in a book before and I loved every second of it as they are almost always narrated through Frank's unique blend of deadpan humour that had me laughing out loud every couple of minutes.
    I'm also in awe at Mr. Correia's ability to weave in complex, well-written characters into an increasingly complex plot that he's been gradually building up and letting unfold as the series has progressed. Fun characters from previous books that you thought were finished are cleverly re-introduced, many lingering questions about the origins of several of them are finally answered and more breadcrumbs are dropped, paving the way for a grand scope in the scheme of things that will be sure to blow our minds!
    This is in my opinion the best book of the excellent series thus far and I can't wait for more!

    "Now that explains a LOT"
    What made the experience of listening to Monster Hunter Nemesis the most enjoyable?

    If you've never listened to any of the "monster hunter" books, stop everything, go back to the beginning and start there. You'll thank me later. I've enjoyed all of Larry's books. This is a series that will make you laugh, cry, ooh, and ahhh. It is a different kind of story but that makes it all the more enjoyable.


    What about Oliver Wyman’s performance did you like?

    Oliver has got reading this story down pat. He has an excellent ability to read and narrate the story. I can't imagine any other reader doing it justice. Good job!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The ending of this book, no spoiler here, was very memorable. It did make you think. It also made you glad for the way things turned out.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm completely ready for Larry's next book in any of his series. I can imagine him out in the desert with his rifle coyote hunting. So, hurry up and finish your next book. We're all anxious for it!
