A NEW NOVEL IN THE MONSTER HUNTER MEMOIRS SERIES. TWO AUTHORS, WHO COMBINED HAVE OVER FOUR MILLION BOOKS IN PRINT AND 10 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLERS, TEAM UP TO EXPAND LARRY CORREIA'S MONSTER HUNTER UNIVERSE!
NIGHTMARE IN THE BIG EASY
With New Orleans out of control, Chad Oliver Gardenier, one of Monster Hunter International’s premier hunters, has been dispatched from Seattle to reinforce the beleaguered members of MHI'S Hoodoo Squad in their fight against the darkness.
Chad had once taken a werewolf while wearing only jogging gear. With half a dozen or more loup garou appearing every full moon, mysterious shadow demons, houdoun necromancers, fifty-foot bipedal crocodiles showing up every couple of months and more vampires than a Goth concert, New Orleans in the '80s gives a whole new perspective to the term “Hell on Earth.” In fact, more monsters are popping up than crawfish at a fais do do! Chad may be able to collect enormous bounties for the monsters he kills. But there’s one catch: he has to stay alive to do it!
About Black Tide Rising series entry Under a Graveyard Sky by John Ringo:
“. . . the thinking reader’s zombie novel . . . Ringo fleshes out his theme with convincing details . . . the proceedings become oddly plausible.”—Publishers Weekly
“If you think the zombie apocalypse will never happen, if you’ve never been afraid of zombies, you may change your mind after reading Under a Graveyard Sky . . . Events build slowly in the book at the outset, but you can’t stop reading because it’s like watching a train wreck in slow motion: inexorable and horrible. And the zombie apocalypse in these pages is so fascinating that you can’t stop flipping pages to see what happens next.”—Bookhound

4.5 Stars This was a very fast paced action story, but it felt a little choppy at times. Remember the first Monster Hunter Memoirs having more of an over arching story. Hope Iron Hand writes another m...
I liked this one better than the first in the trilogy, "Grunge". I still don't like the main protagonist much. I just get the feeling I'm hearing John Ringo's voice being purposefully -- and needlessl...
You know the story on this one - John Ringo allowed to play in Larry Correia's Monster Hunter universe. Now, Ringo can definitely write action as well as Correia (no mean feat). To be honest, however,...
Ringo and Correia do it again.......Chad "Iron Hand" Gardenier is back. Chased out of Seattle by Redneck Elves, Our Hero joins Team Hoodoo, in New Orleans. Where things are a bit different, and all he...
I am a big fan of the Monster Hunters series and I have read a good number of Ringo books. I think I preferred Grunge to Sinners. Sinners read like a love story to New Orleans. Which is cool and the a...
Good storyIt would have been better if larry had written it.Ringos writing style seems weird to me. Its kinda choppy and you have to reread some sentences or even paragraphs to figure out what he is t...
A little better than the first memoirs book, but still I'll give it 3 stars.I still love the MHI books, no matter who writes them, and Oliver Wyman a great narrator. Really one of the best I know. It'...
Not bad, but not as good as grungeIt's a fun book and I enjoyed it, but seems shorter than the last book and doesn't really have a satisfactory resolution at the end. I suppose they'll address that in...
Outstanding read!Ringo nails the spirit of the Monster Hunter series while bringing his own distinctive flare and, as if it were possible, even more over the top action. A thoroughly enjoyable time. ...
Reads like above-average fan fic. That's not a bad thing!I highly recommend the audio version, if only for the main character's drunken rendition of the "The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly" theme. I wond...
