I have absolutely loved the other books. This one just seams forced and does not draw me in. The mojo is just not there.

Where to begin...well, in honor of Monter Hunter Seige's release I relistened to the MHI series to refresh my memory, anticipating it would pick up where #4 and 5 left off. I also found out recently that Mr. Correia lost his father.
With the above in mind I wasn't surprised to discover that the focus of #6 was on Owen Pitt's impending paternity and his introspection of how his father raised him. There are some entertaining parts featuring the lively cast of characters in the MHI universe, but there's also a lot of Owen's internal monologing and dailoging about fatherhood, being a father and coming to grips with his childhood opinions of his father.
I'm sad to say there's a lack of balance in Monster Hunter Seige, the adventure is a secondary or even tertiary concern and worst of all, the characters and Owen especially, fail stupid at a number of points in the book. I hate when an author does that. Clues are missed and obvious tells are ignored, making listening a bit of a slog to get through, the eventual outcome being no surprise and the listener left frustrated.
Here's hoping MHI #7 discontinues along this vein and gets back on track with the earlier novels.
Oliver Wyman's narration, per usual, is top notch.

This series gets better and better. Too many possible spoilers to say anything than - the gang’s all here!
If you are reading this review and haven’t downloaded book 1 Monster Hunter International stop what you are doing and listen to that book first. These books by Larry Corriea are now part of my favourite book series cannot wait for the next.
Love the character Owen Pitt! amongst others, cant wait for the next instalment!!
kick ass keep them coming! i hope the next isnt the last of the series
Always a good story by Larry Correia. I Wish it was longer. Iove Oliver's performance too, never change the narrator.
