Summary

The no-holds-barred final entry in the Monster Hunter Memoirs series from New York Times best-selling authors Larry Correia and John Ringo. 

"This is New Orleans." That mantra had rung in Chad Gadenier's ears since his first day working in the Big Easy. Everything was different in New Orleans. The food. The climate. The monsters. Even the shadowy and reprehensible MCB was different. But that's just the beginning. 

The real reason New Orleans is so different is a larval Great Old One growing day by day in power and just about ready to pop. If Chad can't convince "the powers that be" to get involved, not only New Orleans, but the entire world, is going to fall under the power of the nastiest of nasties. 

Now on the outs with the US government and in exile from his usual job of saving the world, Chad must rally the forces of light against the coming darkness. The problem is one guy with a sword and a sub-gun isn't going to solve this one. 

Fortunately, Chad's made a few friends over the years - and the Fey hate Old Ones as much as God's people, and they're not about to give up this world without a fight. 

If the saints don't come marching in on this one...there won't be a final battle; there will be a final massacre. Now, where'd he put that number for the ditzy Fey princess?

Great way to end a series!

Performance was amazing as usual, and I really like the way the authors ended the series. They did it in a way that respectfully ended a great character in the MHI family and also answered a few questions from other books that I had. I also really liked how they left the storyline open to expand and bind Chads legacy to future MHI storylines. My only wish for the book was that the authors could have made the book longer because I can never get enough monster hunting stories.

Enjoyable!!

Sadly in the latter part of this book anyone who's listened/read the prior two books will either start to think that something is wrong with the recording or that they started listening to a previous book. As far as I can tell from memory, the part where Chad is in England gets copied more or less verbatim from the earlier story. I got a "LashUp" kind of feeling from this third book. I do not know if its just due to the editing or something else but its present and the repeat of the European Gnole story didn't help this in the slightest.. On the whole thou I must say that I love these books and find myself saddened that its only a trilogy collaboration.

Not my favourite of the series

Given the average rating so far, my opinion is an outlier, but here we go anyway.

I did like the previous two instalments in this new Monster Hunter series. The series as a whole brings an interesting perspective on the earlier days of monster hunting.
My problem with this book doesn’t lie there. Rather, what really annoyed me was that this books is padded with a lot of unnecessary philosophising on the benefits of arming everybody and then letting people shoot it out to figure out whose way of life is the best. I’m not really a pacifist, but this is way over the top. I know Correia is a gun nut in a way, but I’d much rather have him post his rants in a blog or something, rather than muddle up an otherwise perfectly good story.

So that’s why I’m only giving it three stars and that’s bit generous given my level of annoyance. Of course, not everybody will be bothered by this and the story otherwise is fairly decent and a good followup to the previous two books. Your mileage may vary.

Love Larry Correia

I have listened to a good chunk of Correia's books - including the Grimnoir Chronicles and the Monster Hunters series. I love his writing.

I was surprised to come across the Memoir series, since I usually troll my favorite authors pages to see if anything new has come up. I bought all three books right after each other and binge listened to them all in a row. (I'm an audio book addict.) Chad Gadenier is an interesting character-he's smart, funny and a phenomenal monster hunter. Even if you haven't read the other Monster Hunter books, it's easy to get caught up in the stories, and the references to previous stories are minor.

For the series, this really was more of a narration of different monster killing experiences; sometimes, just story after story, and thus, a memoir. The storylines in the other books are generally more in-depth, and I prefer that. But, I liked the character of Chad, and some of the story bits from these books filled in pieces of the Monster Hunter series. Chad's academic approach to monster hunting was really intriguing - and certainly a new perspective. Learning the hows and whys provided context that supported the storylines.

It seems the third book could have gone deeper into his relationship with his brother - that particular storyline seemed to happen a bit quickly. The outcome seemed, well, sudden. I felt as though there was something missing - a piece of the story, maybe a loose end relating to his mother? Of course, this would have put the book into more of a "novel" and less of a memoir. Regardless, my favorite books are Sci-Fi/Adventure books, and this series falls near the top of my list. I strongly recommend reading Correia's other books, and looking at Jonathan Maberry as well.

Hand, make a hole

Possible spoilers ahead. I loved it of course. I've been waiting years to find out what happened to our favorite sword wielding Monster Hunter and I wasn't disappointed. St. Peter chose the right man for the job. There are still questions left unanswered, but I think that was on purpose. This was well thought out a d well executed and a conclusion to Chad's already amazing story.

love these authors, love these Monster Hunters

The Monster Hunter Series has to be one of the best series of books I've ever read. the fact that they keep finding new characters to write new trilogies about and still tied into the rest of the books is fascinating. keep up the good work, keep the series going. OMG he had a daughter! I think I see with the next series is going...
