Book Review: Monster Hunter Legion eARC (5 of 5)
So Saturday night I was checking the Baen website for new reading material and got a wonderful surprise:
The eARC (electronic Advanced Reader Copy) was available for the newest addition to Larry Correia’s Monster Hunter International series. It was a bit pricey ($15) and an eARC means that it hasn’t had an editor go over it yet, so I was on the fence. The publish date isn’t until September though Baen usually has the ebook available a week or two before the official date. Maybe I should wait…
What’s this? The first 7 chapters are available online for free!
So I begin.
And finish chapter 7 about 1:00 am.
And order the eARC at 1:01 am. Download and install on my Kindle.
I did manage to wait until Sunday morning to start chapter 8, but it was a close call.
Now on to the review:
Monster Hunter Legion takes place after the events of the first 3 MHI novels. Owen, Julie, Earl and the rest have just arrived in Las Vegas for the first annual monster hunters convention. Hunters from all over the world have arrived, including the Monster Control Board (feds), to exchange information and get to know each other. There’s quite a bit of personal friction between many of the hunters, the SHOT show is across the street, and a top secret government agency (introduced in Monster Hunter Alpha) issues a $10 million challenge to the assembled hunters and the race is on.
MH-Legion is a fast-paced, exciting adventure. I give it 5 out of 5.
Now I just have to wait for Oliver Wyman to record the audio book.
