Summary

They Don't Just Hunt Monsters - They Destroy Them

Having selflessly abandoned their identities, their pasts and their futures, the Monster Aces are all that stand between humanity and the fell creatures that lurk in the shadows. Four men and one woman use their amazing abilities as a team to scour the globe for monsters and bring an end to their unholy existence - whatever the danger, whatever the cost. Through five thrilling tales crafted by some of heroic fiction's most engaging authors you will ride alongside the Aces on the trail of monsters both classic and new. No environment is too severe nor too remote for these adventurers to seek their prey and destroy them forever. The team, led by a mysterious military veteran, uncover evil in mysterious European villages, in dark forests and fetid swamps, in ancient rivers and on the high seas...monsters are everywhere, but so too are the Monster Aces. Concept creator Jim Beard is joined by writers Ron Fortier, Barry Reese, and Van Plexico for a new twist on the classic monster stories of yore, a unique melding of horror and driving pulp action that will thrill and chill you.

Monsters...Beware!

The first three stories had me sorely in doubt, but the last two redeemed them somewhat. That said, the characters were thin, two-dimentional, and the glimpses at their backstory just made me feel like I'd missed a story... The monsters in the first three were somewhat interesting, but somehow didn't inspire much suspense. In fact, I started out with the impression that younger readers might have been the target audience. A better narrator might have done more with the material - in fact, these stories might be better suited for a dramatic presentation, audio or visual, in which actors could bring the characters to life and music and sound effects could enhance the atmosphere - although his greatest failing was the mispronunciation of words. But it's possible that bad editing could've also been the issue as at one point the word 'remunerating' was used when 'ruminating' would have been more logical. And, if I'm honest, I really didn't like the name: Monster Aces. Also, their attitude towards and relationship with Trill was a bit tiresome after hearing it described in five stories. She's like their tag-along little sister; no one wants her interfering in their boy's only club, even though she always makes valuable contributions to their efforts. I could go on...but I think you better just listen now and decide for yourself...
