Overview

Book 4 in the New York Times Best Selling Monster Hunter series. A conference in Vegas becomes a showdown between Owen Pitt and the staff of Monster Hunter International with an ancient god, one that could turn Sin City into a literal hell on earth.

Monster Hunter International might be the premier monster eradication company in the business, but they’ve got competition.

When hunters from around the world gather in Las Vegas for a conference, a creature left over from a World War Two weapons experiment wakes up and goes on a rampage across the desert. A not-so-friendly wager between the rival companies turns into a race to see who can bag the mysterious creature first.

Only there is far more to this particular case than meets the eye, and as Hunters fall prey to their worst nightmares, Owen Zastava Pitt and the staff of Monster Hunter International have to stop an ancient god from turning Sin City into a literal hell on earth.

About Monster Hunter Legion:
“If Pitt and his crew can’t stop this one, what happens in Vegas will not stay in Vegas, but will take over the whole planet. . . . It’s definitely a lot of fun, much of it tongue-in-cheek. Any shoot-em-up gamer should be delighted.” —Analog on Monster Hunter Legion.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Teams of monster hunters gather in Las Vegas for their first-ever professional conference. When an experimental creature, dormant since World War II, awakens and runs amok through the nearby desert, Owen Pitt and his crew from Monster Hunter International join in the race to subdue or destroy it. As group rivalries threaten to turn deadly, a different monster emerges, killing its prey with their own nightmares. The monster hunters find themselves in a battle for their lives. VERDICT The fourth title (and first hardback) in Correia's popular series (Monster Hunter International; Monster Hunter Vendetta; Monster Hunter Alpha) features fast-paced battle scenes, tongue-in-cheek humor, funny, likeable characters, and an appropriate amount of gore. Readers of urban fantasy and military sf, as well as series fans, will enjoy this adventure.
