About the Author
Larry Correia is an award-winning competitive shooter, a movie-prop-gun master and, yes, an accountant by day-but an urban noir adventure master by night.

Correia is very tall, very bald, and lives in Utah with his wife and family.

Larry correia writes well. Characterisation is good, the text is funny at the right points and the story moves along like a movie, reminding me of Matthew Reilly stuff.
Start from book 1 and enjoy yourself. This author ws a lucky find for me. He has become one of my favorites and I read a LOT
Now the signed part is maybe autopen, I suspect it's simply printed. I've always considered it a cheat unless the author has personally signed the individual book with a pen. There again what do you expect with a large print run 'limited edition', and it's
an amusing and series specific one.
It has never been more the case than in Monster Hunter Legion.
In this book we are once more in the head of Z as he and the other hunters of MHI head to Las Vegas for the first international Monster Hunter Convention. Once there they all find themselves in the middle of something that even a legion of monster hunters struggle to handle and it falls to Z to accept his destiny in order to overcome this new foe.
In this book we learn a lot more about the coming battle, about Z being a chosen one and basically about the continuing increase in tension as to what might be coming next for our favourite monster hunters.
We also get to see our favourite characters again and see how once more their relationships develop and they evolve as characters themselves. It is another strength of this series that the characters are capable of as much change as they are and so each book is comfortably different from the next leaving me excited to read something new.
All in all this is a good book with only one flaw that I can think of, the MCB. I simply don't buy them and I haven't for a long time now. I just don't understand how a group of tough nut monster hunters and anyone else who had come in contact with the MCB could put up with what has been done to them.
They are so unreasonable and outright villainous that I am pretty sure that it would be keeping within the character traits of the Monster Hunters to have simply killed them by now. It's not even like they couldn't get away with it, they are all trained killers and could probably do it with no problems and in the case of these books it would be justifiable. In every book so far the MCB have been responsible for murdering innocents, ruining people's lives and basically making every situation disastrously worse. In this story there is a title character who actually admits that he is doing something terrible for the sake of personal gain and I just can't believe that these monster hunters would simply stand back and take it, government body or not.
It is a small gripe in an otherwise enjoyable book. So often this kind of story could become too cheesy or repeat itself book after book, but the author has picked a good direction for the series that keeps everyone happy and the story moving forward.
Overall this was another great read from Larry Correia and I look forward to the next book eagerly.
Great fast paced action with a well though out story arc, really looking forward to the next one.
