Monster Hunter International by Larry Corriea is a one of those books that turns out to be a gun loving all American individuals’ guilty pleasure. This novel revolves around the concept that monsters are real. That’s right all those nasty creatures we have been reading and learning about over the years are out there. Even the ones from all those B-movies too! They’ve been lurking in the shadows plotting our down fall and that’s where agency Monster Hunters International comes in. They are the ones that come in to clean up and eradicate the evil little beasties.
The main character of the story is Owne Zastava Pitt. He’s your average, everyday Joe Smoe that’s been working for a living, lives in the suburbs of Seattle with his wife and kids. Everything is normal for Owen until his boss at work tries to bite of his head and not in the figurative way. This is the catalyst for Owen getting thrown into the crazy world of Monsters and Money. Yes that’s right there is serious money to be made in killing monsters.
The agency Monster Hunter International is a ragtag band of misfits (with a few toys that Batman would enjoy) that have come together to fight off the forces of evil. They guys don’t joke around as they are packing napalm-fed flamethrowers, specialized body armor, big freaking guns and more! The best thing about Monster Hunter is the fact that you’ll come to enjoy the likeable, well developed heroes (that do bleed) and the full speed testosterone action of a Michael Bay movie but funnier.
There are some rough spots in the book as the book slows down but quickly recovers and you are pulled right back into the fast paced action. If you like Science Fiction Fantasy, Military Fiction, or Horror then you will find yourself eagerly flipping the pages to see what new monster Larry Corriea has seamlessly woven into this high action story.
