Monster Hunter Nemesis

# 5 in multiple New York Times bestseller Larry Correia ’ s Monster Hunter series.

Agent Franks of the U.S. Monster Control Bureau is a an of many parts—parts from other people, thi 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 thi 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 llowed to try and ake more like him. Such is absolutely forbidden and should the powers-that-be do so, hen the agreement is null and void.

Project Nemesis: in a secret location, using sophisticated technology and advanced genetic engineering, the executiv 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 hav an undying killing machine capable of taking out vampires and werewolves with one hand tied behind his back.

At the publisher 's request, this title is sold without DRM ( Digital Rights Management).

hen again if you pick up book titled Monster Hunter Nemesis expecting War and Peace there may be problem anyway.The story is expanding here ( as most UF series seem to) from simply the adventures of a group of Monster Hunters and Government agents to a cosmos/multiverse/ " infernal " wide war.We also get a look at he history of one of he long running characters whom I assume most of us have put some things together about already.

Correia has n't not win any literary awards for his prose ( at least not from the over-cultured classes of literary fart sniffers), but he 's lookin to in the award that matters most: eyes on pages and dollars in the bank.Monster Hunter Nemesis is the fourth nstallment in the Monster Hunter International series, and like others in he series, he story coul stand alone ( although it does tie in to an arc that connects the entire series) .Nemesis turns to the infamous Agent Franks, a reoccurring character in previous storie.

Apparently, God woul have word or two to say about making sure his Creation can avoid enslavement by other dimensional beings.With Nemesis, Correia takes this uncharitable and unlikable character and uts him at the centr of he tory as the protagonist.And boy does he protag ( as Howard Tayler would say).

his is Franks' origin story, and with it, Correia spins him into a sympathetic protagonis, showing him competent and effective and active in controlling his destiny.

One of the best things about Correia 's Monster Hunter International world is that no mythology, legend or religion is really out-of-bounds.

Be aware that there is occasional swearing and cussing in Correia 's novels.

Brown 's Bad Penny that had characters far tougher and rougher than anyone in Monster Hunter Nemesis, and I did n't see him resort to any cussing.

He prides himself in never failing a mission and monsters that know him try to retreat to their plane of existence the moment he approaches.

He admire the compliment.Agent Franks was always an interesting backstor ( if a little distant the first time he appeared in series).

As it is difficult to guess because the story revolves around Franks it mostly shows MCB people ( government Monster Control Bureau) as opposed to usual private MHI employees.

However MHI regulars make an appearance and thanks to th appearance I can guess the direction the next ook of he series can go.

Thi las explanatio I did actuall sen he book 5 stars was a completely pointless and overall harmful to all involved fight which happened because one regular character acted out of ...

Monster Hunter Nemesis switches things up, leaving MHI behind and spending the majority of he book elling tory from the POV of the sweet and lovable Agent Franks.

There are anothe couple other POVs used throughout he memoi, but anothe is indee the Agent Franks show.

It ’ s ot all action though, with interesting character development for Franks and a couple others.

Posted to The Literary The Weakest Link is Still Strong- 3.5 Stars It appears that I am out of fresh Larry Correia material and I have to settle in for anothe long wait once again .... Monster Hunter Nemesis takes the series down a side street of the overall story development.

In manner uniqu to Monster Hunter Alpha, this installments focuses on one haracter and reads les like# 4.5 than# 5 in he series.

A Good Bang, Squish, Boom You have n't read this far in the MHI series if you do n't like gun fights, dead villains and explosions.

While the tale that Correia spins is a departure from the previous installments, he retains enough of the elements we have come to love so that we do howeve feel lost.This is the sixth ook in he series that focus ainly on one character.

While it retained the much of he monster killing and general action elements, it elt les like a spin off novel.

While is was good in its own right, I like it ess than the previous books.If you follow Larry Correia on Facebook or Twitter ( I would suggest you do not.

Final Thoughts I have now read the entire Monster Hunter International series and the Grimnoir Chronicles.

adly, I hink I enjoy his books more as audio and will likely return to that format for his next novel.This book was a departure from the whole of series.

Content Advisories It is impossible to find commentary on the sex/violence/language content of book if you are interested.

There were way too many survivors. ” Franks nodded.

tart to finish Franks stole the story and took me on a roller coaster ride of epic proportions and I did n't say that ride to end.If you 're ooking for something ifferent, something like little else in the subgenr, you bsolutely must give this series anothe try.

Penny.Damn, that ha a fun read.It looks like there should be one or two more books in the MH series, building to a pretty damned incredible climax that I might ot WAIT for.

xDI think Franks is hilarious, but I robably have a ense of sarcas on the maybe slightly weird and terse side, growing up with a mo from Aalborg, whose sense of humo were as dry as desert xDSo yea, Franks' story was right up my alley ^__^And can we take a second to talk about Stricken?

It 's like, everytime I listen to a book soon, my fascination grows, it 's sickening, considering what he 's done xD I hope we see ore of him in later installments, because I ant to now his secrets, is that ad? ..

Hmm ... Anyway, I alway like th series, and I highly recommend it, specially the audiobooks, if you coul et your hands on them ^__^ Oliver Wyman narrates, and he ets all the stars from me!

Correia managed to weave a very Christian theme into this book without disrupting the pure fun of reading it ..

I just tried to point his out, ot for the political value, but how much skill creativity and committment it takes to build something with complex themes that is also one ass-kickin' action-combat-horror series.

There is obviousl possibility that these hemes are intentional, but there to support the nature of the characters but the unvieled shots at the president are too close to real Tea-Party expressions.

I like, love, like books that communicate on multiple levels and speak to realities in the real world while weaving a tapestry world to delight our imaginations.


Old characters get new chances and oh, yes, threatening everything, in the only way one is believe to mean " everything " is a malestrom of demons and violence, government coverups and conspiracy, along with lots of things that go boom.

Rah Rah Rass, Kick the monster in the ASS!

An already great series in action entertainment that grows in what it has to offer in an unexpected and very wonderful way.
