Monster Hunter Nemesis by Larry Correia [4.5 stars]



From The Description:

#5 in multiple New York Times bestseller Larry Correia’s Monster Hunter series.

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.

I have been following this series from the beginning. Most of the books have focused on the MHI team of Owen Pitt but with this new novel we get to peek inside MCB and the always fascinating Agent Franks. If you have been reading these novels then you already know that Franks is Frankenstein's Monster but here you find out that he is so much more. As with the other novels this is a super fast paced thrill ride filled with both old and new friends and monsters. I can't wait for part six!! A fun read! A solid 4.5 stars.
