Publisher's Summary

A new novel in the Monster Hunter Memoirs series. Two authors, who combined have over four million books in print and 10 New York Times best sellers, team up to expand Larry Correia's Monster Hunter universe!
Nightmare in the Big Easy
With New Orleans out of control, Chad Oliver Gardenier, one of Monster Hunter International's premier hunters, has been dispatched from Seattle to reinforce the beleaguered members of MHI'S Hoodoo Squad in their fight against the darkness.
Chad had once taken a werewolf while wearing only jogging gear. With half a dozen or more loup garou appearing every full moon, mysterious shadow demons, houdoun necromancers, 50-foot bipedal crocodiles showing up every couple of months, and more vampires than a Goth concert, New Orleans in the '80s gives a whole new perspective to the term hell on earth. In fact more monsters are popping up than crawfish at a fais do do! Chad may be able to collect enormous bounties for the monsters he kills. But there's one catch: He has to stay alive to do it!

MHI in New Orleans.

MH Memoirs: Sinners continues the John Ringo penned spinoff of the excellent Monster Hunter International series.

It continues the adventures of Chad "IronHand" Gardenier, who has left the Pacific Northwest for the Big Easy.

The main character wasn't nearly as annoying as in his first outing, and I really enjoyed the change of scenery, and the madness that comes with Monster Hunting in New Orleans. The setting, and the way it plays out is certainly a highlight of this story.

Most of the book is just a series of action sequences, connected by the overall 'this is a memoir' plot device. It's not that they are boring, Ringo is decent at action writing, but there hardly is ever any real challenge for our protagonist.

There was a hint of an over arching plot, but quite honestly, it's not nearly developed as much as it should be. Chad's family, specifically his brother, was mentioned as part of 'the Dark Masters', but it seems like this was just forgotten, or at least not brought up enough to make an impact.

I've read a few other John Ringo books, and I just don't think his writing style is for me. He's not as accomplished a story teller as Correia is, and quite frankly the Memoirs Series reads a bit like Fan Fiction, and not of the same caliber the original series is.

All that said, I'm still a fan of this series, simply because I just absolutely love the MHI world, and want to delve more into it.

A note on Oliver Wyman's performance. He absolutely rocks with his voices and sound effects. He is so enjoyable and really brings some choppy writing to life. I do have a slight quibble in that his voicing of Chad has slightly changed in this version...it has more of a southern drawl that I didn't detect in the first book. Whether this is because the character has been more established, or it's a conscience change, it was a bit off putting at first. Again, minor quibble. His voicing of the gnomes, or the giant mole rat more than makes up for it....

the memoirs are entertaining and get you a good fix, but naturally lacks the depth of story and development when compared to the full blown novels. perfect morning commute distraction material if you love the mhi crew
