Overview

Book 5 in the New York Times Best Selling Monster Hunter Series by Larry Correia.

Agent Franks of the U.S. Monster Control Bureau is a man of many parts—parts from other people, that is. Franks is nearly seven feet tall and all muscle. He's nearly indestructible. Plus he’s animated by a powerful alchemical substance and inhabited by a super-intelligent spirit more ancient than humanity itself.

Good thing he’s on our side. More or less.

Sworn to serve and protect the United States of America from all monsters by one of the country’s founding fathers, Franks has only one condition to the agreement: no matter what the government learns of him, no matter what is discovered concerning his odd physiology or the alchemy behind the elixir that made him, the government is never, ever allowed to try and make more like him. Such is absolutely forbidden and should the powers-that-be do so, then the agreement is null and void.

Project Nemesis: in a secret location, using sophisticated technology and advanced genetic engineering, the director of the very agency Franks works for is making more like him. And the director is not content with making one. Nope, he’s making thirteen.

Now all bets are off, and Hell hath no fury like a monster betrayed. Particularly if that monster happens to be an undying killing machine capable of taking out vampires and werewolves with one hand tied behind his back.

Editorial Reviews

Franks is singular and he wants to stay that way. This genetically engineered superman is the indestructible star of the U.S. Monster Control Bureau, ready and able to fight all foreign invaders. But lately, there is a problem, a very big problem: At a secret location, biotech geniuses are constructing new supermen, just like him. And it turns out that the culprit is Franks' own boss.... (P.S. Fans of Larry Correia's weapons-savvy military sci-fi have only one request: Write faster.)

I started reading this book yesterday, and finally had to put it down to go to sleep. I finished it today. The story is COSMIC  in scope and Larry finally gives us all the backstory on Agent Franks. Be prepared to have your mind blown. Congratulations, Larry, on a great story.

Actually, Herr Dippel's monster, Franks, gets the job done. Excellent story with humor.

A fun read. But must read others in series first.

This is an enjoyable book, but nowhere near as nice as the earlier books. The main character is much less likeable, the bad guy has a plan that makes little sense. It only works because the President and all of his advisers are portrayed as easy to fool. If you already like the series, you will enjoy this book. But this book will not convince any new comers to read the series. Instead, I suggest starting with the first book in the series. Monster Hunter International is a FAR superior book.

Although I was a little wary because this story was significantly shorter than previous books (still over 300 pages!), it was, like all Correia's Monster Hunter books, very, very good. I couldn't turn the pages fast enough!

I enjoyed every page of this book and I cannot wait for the next Monster Hunter book to come out. I have slowly come to like Agent Franks. It was a slow process but sometime you have to like someone that lives outside the box. I am not a gun enthusiast, but I do like an exciting fantasy.
