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?

It was good.. until it wasn't

I didn't like the first book of this off shoot of the monster hunter chronicles but I decided to take a chance on the second book and grew to like the character. He was so different from owen the main character of the monster hunter books and when I went back to re-listen to the other monster hunter books , I grew to dislike owen, he was such a pansy..always going on about what's her face and how she loves him and he doesn't know why and whatever..get on with the story! I didn't like the ending to this book. I spent my time listening to these 3 series and then what happen?! agh..waste of my time!

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.

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.

filler

there is a section of this book that is verbatim extracted from a earlier book in this series to fill space. now don't give me wrong I like the book but if you run out of ideas don't just steal a chapter from another book and expect no one to notice.

hope this collaboration continues...

I'm not normally a fan of any author writing about a world created by another. This collaboration is truly the exception. Together Larry Correia and John Ringo have created a hero that belongs with MHI. And Oliver Wyman continues to narrate these stories with incredible skill. Well done gentleman, looking forward to many more books.

Great work.

Many dismiss the author because of the genre. Please don’t make that mistake. This book and the entire series is well constructed solidly written fiction. While there are guns, werewolves, demons, and lots of blood that just makes the well-thought and deep character development that much more fun to read. I will confess while I am a lawyer now who enjoys the escapism, I was a US Cavalry guy (RECON) for a good while and the detailed descriptive battle scenes are excellent (I love me some thermite).

I wish I could listen to new stories of MHI every week. That would be something I'd pay for.

Solid

lot of stories, especially side stories to the main series have a hard time sticking the landing. the style was unexpected after the main MHI universe is so straight line stories. but over 3 books Ringo & Correia took the format change, had fun and still made Chad a character you greatly appreciate. they stuck the landing.

Excellent Book - Excellent Narration

This is the best of the three books in the Monster Hunter Memoirs series. The story is much tighter and is far better edited, especially compared to the second book. The reader is excellent.

This is one of the most enjoyable audio performances of an action Science Fiction/Fantasy story that I have experienced. If you enjoyed any of the MHI books, you will gain great enjoyment from this audiobook.
