I Recently Finished Reading: Monster Hunter Siege

This book felt like the peak of the story Correia's been working towards over the last three books in the series. The hunters of the world, tired of simply reacting to the increase in monster activity, decide to go the offensive and attack the stronghold of the demon that's been orchestrating many of the events … Continue reading I Recently Finished Reading: Monster Hunter Siege

I Recently Finished Reading: Monster Hunter Nemesis

Larry Correia has a good sense of timing with his larger stories. He used the first two books to set up the world and characters, then pulled a single protagonist aside for the third book. The fourth book again used the full cast of characters, and now, in the fifth book, he takes a minor, … Continue reading I Recently Finished Reading: Monster Hunter Nemesis

I Recently Finished Reading: Monster Hunter Legion

I picked up this audiobook while on vacation. I knew that it would be easy enough to listen to that I could put it on while driving, but also quick and action packed which would help keep me awake. It delivered on those two things. The story picks up not long after the previous book … Continue reading I Recently Finished Reading: Monster Hunter Legion

The first thing I want to say about this book is that I'm really glad the author shifted the focus away from Pitt. I also liked that the story was kept to a single location and a smaller threat. Too often, I see book series that continually try and escalate, and it just leads to … Continue reading I Recently Finished Reading: Monster Hunter Alpha

The second installment of the Monster Hunter series was a big step up from the first book. I felt like Monster Hunter International was an entertaining book, but Correia was such an inexperienced author that it was riddled with mistakes. So many of those mistakes were corrected here. Given that the first book was self-published … Continue reading I Recently Finished Reading: Monster Hunter Vendetta

I Recently Finished Reading: Monster Hunter International

I was looking forward to reading this book since I enjoyed the Grimnoir Chronicles so much. What I found was a good book with some big flaws. Monster Hunter International was Correia's first novel, and was originally self-published. It wasn't hard to see that the author was inexperienced, as this book used a lot of … Continue reading I Recently Finished Reading: Monster Hunter International

I Recently Finished Reading: Spellbound

I don't think I liked this book quite as much as the first. One of the things that made the first book so good was that the main protagonists, Sullivan and Faye, didn't know who the good guys were, so they acted independently until they figured it out. In this book, right from the beginning, … Continue reading I Recently Finished Reading: Spellbound
