GO BIG OR GO HOME
When Monster Hunter International's top hunter, Owen Zastava Pitt, was given a tip about some hunters who had gone missing in action, he didn’t realize their rescue mission would snowball into the single biggest operation in MHI's history. Their men are being held prisoner in a horrific nightmare dimension, and the only way to reach them is through the radioactive ruins of a monster-infested war zone.
As if that wasn't bad enough, it’s also the home base of the powerful creature behind the devastating attacks on the Last Dragon and Copper Lake. It turns out ancient gods of chaos really hate trespassers. But this god picked a fight with the wrong crew, and now MHI wants payback. Calling on their allies, a massive expedition is formed, and with the odds stacked against them, a legion of hunters goes to war.
It’s D-Day at the City of Monsters.

The sixth raucous, weapons-fueled Monster Hunters fantasy (following Monster Hunter Nemesis) starts slowly as Correia grounds new readers, but picks up a full head of steam by the end. Owen Pitt sacrificed two members of his team during the first (and only) International Conference of Monster Hunting Professionals, held at the Last Dragon Casino in Las Vegas, and their deaths have haunted him ever since. Years later, Owen learns that VanZant and Lococo might not be dead after all. Intel acquired in trade for an old relic allows him to view other worlds, including the Nightmare Realm, where Owen's two hunters might still be alive. If they are, Owen means to bring them back. But one team of hunters isn't going to be able to do more than spit into the wind in the Nightmare Realm. This calls for international hunter cooperation, and the biggest, baddest arsenal of ordnance ever assembled. Correia's latest slugfest between men and demons covers all the bases: heavy-duty weaponry, slick military banter, humor, tough evil dudes, and a strong-jawed hero who's ready to save the world.
Larry,s MHI world is so perfect. These are six books that have continually gotten better. This series is one of the best ever.
I enjoyed the book. I like Correia’s characters and world but I get a bit bogged down in the weirdness. Mostly I am bugged because NOW I have to wait with bated breath for the NEXT book.
I'm not normally a big reader but i have been hooked on this series since the first page of the first book. I really hope Larry gets the attention he deserves for the absolute masterpiece of a story line he is putting together. Ill be pre-ordering the next one to come out, you can bet on it.
