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.

Great book well read can't wait for the next in the series brijg it on
Always a good story by Larry Correia. I Wish it was longer. Iove Oliver's performance too, never change the narrator.
thrilling and interesting keeping you guessing, introducing many new awsome characters. worth reading and a great addition to the series.
