Book 5 in the New York Times Best Selling Monster Hunter Series by Larry Correia. 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. About Larry Correia's Monster Hunter series "[A] no-holds-barred all-out page turner that is part science fiction, part horror, and an absolute blast to read."--Bookreporter.com "If you love monsters and action, you'll love this book. If you love guns, you'll love this book. If you love fantasy, and especially horror fantasy, you'll love this book."--Knotclan.com "A gun person who likes science fiction--or, heck, anyone who likes science fiction--will enjoy [these books]...The plotting is excellent, and Correia makes you care about the characters...I read both books without putting them down except for work...so whaddaya waitin' for? Go and buy some...for yourself and for stocking stuffers."--Massad Ayoob About Larry Correia's Monster Hunter Vendetta: "This lighthearted, testosterone-soaked sequel to 2009's Monster Hunter International will delight fans of action horror with elaborate weaponry, hand-to-hand combat, disgusting monsters, and an endless stream of blood and body parts."--Publishers Weekly The Monster Hunter SeriesMonster Hunter International Monster Hunter Vendetta Monster Hunter Alpha Monster Hunter Legion Monster Hunter Nemesis The Monster Hunters (Omnibus contains Monster Hunter International, Monster Hunter Vendetta, and Monster Hunter Alpha)… (més)

Good fun, well plotted. ( )

This straightforward read brings frankenstein's monster against a werewolf; including special guest stars that includes the son of frankenstein's monster, cthulhu types, a host of fallen angels. There's even a very special accountant that drops in on the fun.
I hope you like guns! And pain! Lots and lots of pain!
More than anything, I was struck by how very patriotic the whole novel was. It was one of the most literal mind-bending "For God and Country" pastiches I've ever read, but it wasn't hokey. Or at least it was so over the top hokey that it found its equilibrium on the far side.
The tongue in cheek was sometimes on the other side, too.
Fun stuff, peeps. ( )

Really probably a 3.7. I haven't read everyone in this series so I may have missed some of the subtlety or continuing character arcs, but it is written such that you really know all there is to know. (Given the level of blood and graphically described mayhem, subtlety is probably not a goal in any case.) Basically a techno-thriller with some 'monsters', including (in fact starring) Frankenstein's monster. (I'll mark this as a spoiler but it really isn't much of a spoiler.)

A good light reading page-turner. ( )

Lets get my main gripe with this book out of the way from the start. This book is not about Monster Hunter International. Sure, MHI are a wee bit involved and some of the characters make a few short appearances but it is really not a MHI story. It is a story in the MHI world and it does follow rather seamlessly from the previous book (or books) but 99% of the book is about Franks. Given the book blurb this is perhaps not so surprising. I have to say that I do like these books better when they focus on MHI and the main MHI characters. Having said that, it is still a damned good book.

I assume that the readers have read the previous books in the series. It should then not be a surprise to anyone that a book in which Franks is the main character means clobbertime. Franks idea of diplomacy and how to deal with political assholes are, well, let us just say that it would not be considered as politically correct today and have probably not been so the last couple of hundred years. Needless to say I like Franks attitude.

Unfortunately Franks is set up. That means that Franks is pissed off. That is bad news for the imbeciles setting him up. It is good news for the readers. A pissed off Franks makes for fun reading. When I said that it was imbeciles setting Franks up that was not quite true. The guy setting him app is not really an imbecile. Asshole maybe but no imbecile. The politicians that allowed it to happen are imbeciles though. Not that this is very surprising.

In between the various outbursts of Franks version of “diplomacy” the book reveals quite a lot of Franks history which is rather interesting. The book also gradually spins together a story that leaves the door wide open for future books in the series, and it looks like the stakes are going up, which of course is a good thing. Luckily this do not mean that the book ends in a real cliffhanger. A huge teaser maybe but not a cliffhanger. The book have a decent enough conclusion of the main story of the book itself.

The book is of course written in the usual style of Larry Correia which I like a lot. Plenty of action, good characters, good writing in general, lots of guns although this one did perhaps not dwell on the guns or go into as much details as some of his previous books.

Bottom line is that it is a damned good book although I hope the next installment will bring focus back on the MHI team.

I received this copy from the publisher through Netgalley.com and that in no way has influenced my opinion in regards to this review.   This review is written with a GPL 3.0 license and the rights contained therein shall supersede all TOS by any and all websites in regards to copying and sharing without proper authorization and permissions. Crossposted at Bookstooge.booklikes.blogspot.wordpress.com by express permission of this reviewer     Synopsis: Agent Franks is center stage in a Special Task Force Unicorn vendetta. Franks is on the run while he must clear his name, destroy a whole set of bodies based upon him AND prevent an invasion of the original fallen angels.   My Thoughts: Just like in Alpha, this book follows a particular person in the MHI universe. Agent Franks, the mysterious, deadly bulldog of the Monster Control Bureau.   First off, the violence level is just as high as in Alpha. In fact,  the book starts off with Franks using guns, crowbars and fists to destroy a cult that is trying to raise an Elder god.   Then things really get started. Apparently, Franks has a deal with the United States, but it works both ways. One of those conditions is that no recreating of Franks is allowed. But the STFU [yeah, I love how Correia worked that] is being as evil'y as ever and the leader, Stricken, has broken that agreement and made multiple flesh golems with all the modern tech at his disposal.   So Stricken must get rid of Franks and Franks must get rid of Stricken and the copies.   However, unbeknownst to humanity, but very well known to Franks, is the fact that the bodies are taken by fallen angels, not new human souls. And here Correia gives his readers a crash course in semi-mormon theology and mixes it with Cthulthuic lore. Pretty interesting and it makes internal sense for the overall series.   Franks must stop the invasion of a literal Hell on Earth. It is great. Huge battles involving everything from 50cal guns to fisti-cuffs. It is a pulse pounding, hard core, thrill-a-minute, roller coaster adventure.   I just tore through this book and loved every second of it. It was good enough to make me seriously consider buying the whole series in hardcover. I did drop a half star because of the profanity. It wasn't completely gratuitous, but it was way more than necessary.   Rating: 4.5 of 5 Stars Author: Larry Correia " ( )
