    Inhaltsangabe

    New entry in the best-selling Monster Hunter International series by Dragon Award-winning authors Larry Correia and Sarah A. Hoyt

    When Owen Pitt and the rest of the Monster Hunter International crew are called away to mount a month’s-long rescue mission in a monster-infested nightmare dimension, Julie Shackleford - Owen’s wife and descendant of MHI founder Bubba Shackleford - is left behind. Her task: hold down the fort and take care of her new baby son Ray. Julie’s devoted to the little guy, but the slow pace of office work and maternity leave are starting to get to her. But when a routine field call brings her face-to-face with an unspeakable evil calling itself Brother Death, she’ll get more excitement than she ever hoped for. 

    Julie is the Guardian of a powerful ancient artifact known as the Kamaresh Yar, and Brother Death wants it. In the wrong hands, it could destroy reality as we know it. Julie would die before giving it up. 

    Then Ray goes missing, taken by Brother Death. The price for his safe return: the Kamaresh Yar. If Julie doesn’t hand over the artifact it means death - or worse - for baby Ray. With no other choice left to her, Julie agrees to Brother Death’s demands. But when you’re dealing with an ancient evil, the devil is in the details. 

    To reclaim her son, Julie Shackleford will have to fight her way through necromantic death cults, child-stealing monsters, and worse. And she’ll have to do it all before Brother Death can unleash the Kamaresh Yar. 

    It’s one woman against an army of monsters. But Julie Shackleford is no ordinary woman - she’s one tough mother!

    Sprecherin schwer erträglich, Story Ok

    Die Story ist ok, Wenn auch etwas schwächer als die der Vorgänger.
    Was mich deftig störte und mir das Hörerlebnis streckenweise ruinierte ist die Sprecherin.
    Über Minuten hinweg einer Stimme zuzuhören, die abwechselnd unpassend weinerlich, eine "gewollt und nicht gekonnt"- Imitation einer tiefen männlichen Stimme ist oder von anstrengend übertriebenem Pathos trieft, fand ich schwer erträglich und eben dies ruinierte das Hörbuch für mich.

    Hätte Larry mal besser selber geschrieben :-(

    Der definitiv schwächste Teil. Trifft von der ganzen Erzählweise nicht so wirklich die Vorgänger. Irgendwie berührt mich diese weinerlliche Titelheldin leider überhaupt nicht. Die ganze Storyentwicklung ist total plump und eindimensional.
    Als Fan der Vorgängerteile muss man sich wohl leider trotzdem durchleiden, aber wäre es der erste Monster Hunter Titel gewesen hätte ich garantiert aufgehört mit der Serie.

    Tolle Story, nervende Sprecherin

    Die Story ist gut wie immer. Leider wird die taffe Julie manchmal zu soft dargestellt. Die englische Specherin, toll spricht hier eine Frau, da es ja um Julie geht, ging mir mit ihrer melodramatischen Sprechweise zum Teil richig auf die Nerven. Schade, meiner Meinung leidet das Hörbuch unter der Sprecherin. Diese "whiny" Stimme, wenn Sie sich sorgen macht, nervt nur. Leider. Habe aber darüber hinwegsehen können und die Story genossen.

    Worst if the series for sure

    The reader sounds whiney all the time it really gets annoying. Also the co author was not a good choice. The whole time july was being whiney and not the same character we are used from the other books. The plot is alright but the book is far from the other ones. I even cought myselfe waiting for it to be over so i could move on to other books. Very unfortunate as i really like the series.

    WOW ... that was awful [in otherwise great series]

    First up: I love the Monster Hunter International series. So very well done by Larry Correia, but for crying out loud ... what was this?

    There was not a single moment of suspense. It was so obvious from the get-go that this story was going to have a happy ending – mother cuddling baby again – that I don't even bother to mention 'spoiler alert'. Trust me: if you listen to this book, you will immediately know what I mean. On top of that: we already know that the husband is alive and well, unless someone missed the book that came before in this series, which is highly unlikely, as this is anything but a stand-alone novel. So what was all of this teary-eyed 'oh, my husband is dead' supposed to accomplish, when everybody knows this is not true?

    Speaking about 'teary-eyed': then there's the whiny voice of the narrator. Nails on chalk board bad.

    Possibly most annoying (if one had to pick one aspect that failed most): finally, there's a female lead in this series and what do the authors do with that? Endless whining over 'oh, my poor baby', because, yeah, sure, only thing a woman might ever fight for, is, of course, her child. How stereotypical is that? Learned nothing from the Alien-series? How that ruined the whole concept? And if I hear just one more 'cuddle bunny's cuddle bunny' ...

    Arguably, the worst aspect is still the 'no suspense whatsoever' debacle, though. The story was so transparent, there is not a single moment of suspense or tension. It was so bad, that in the end, I almost hoped for the child not to survive ... simply because at least that would have been an unexpected turn of events.

    Whose fault is that? Did Larry Correia let Sarah A. Hoyt take over completely? Whatever happend to Correia's otherwise extraordinaty talent to tell a great tale? Is Sarah A. Hoyt an author of romance novels, when she's not messing with a Monster Hunter book? My guess: she probably is: only explanation I can come up with. (Romance is the one genre that frowns upon creating any actual suspense, because the end is fixed right from the start; it's what fans of this genre expect – and get – every single time.)

    This may all sound quite over the top. Surely, it cannot be that bad? Well ... it can and sadly, it is.

    The narrator didn't help either: I've already mentioned the at times excruciatingly whiny performance, but unfortunately, Bailey Carr is also incapable of letting any male character come to life. All of the male characters in this book – from death deamon to loving husband – sound exactly the same, when Carr lends them her voice. It's almost as if she hated the story, so really didn't give a hoot.

    I don't remember when I last felt that let-down by any book.

    In summary pretty bad

    The performer had an annoying voice. It sometimes sounded like she is a text to speech programme.
    The writing and story where boring too. Not even boring, but annoying. I know you want so save your baby and are frightened that something happened to it, but you don't need to tell me every other paragraph.
    And Lederhosen in Cologne? People from Cologne would never dress up like that. Minis are stupid? (bc they don't need a load of fuel or what?)
    The only reason for hearing this would be because you want to follow the main story line of the series...

    Disappointing Performance

    The Story is ok, although the author confirms every clichee about Americans not being able to accept or eben understand any other culture than their own. Other than that, it is well written.

    Unfortunately, the performer couldn't be bothered to listen to one of the previous books, so she pronounces names differently.
    Personally, I also dislike the whiney voice. I would have wished for a power house like Julie Shakleford to sound a tad stronger, tougher.
