Monster Hunter Internation : Guardian

The biggest thing to know about this book is that it was written by Sarah Hoyt rather than Larry Correa. I've actually got a fair number of Sarah Hoyt books that I picked up as part of various monthly bundles. I've tried several, but have never really gotten very far into one. They weren't bad, they just didn't hold my interest.

The good news is that this book is apparently a side book and doesn't particularly move the story line along much. Basically it's what happened to Julie during Monster Hunter International : Siege.

It wasn't a terrible book and I did finish it, but like I say, it had a very different feel than the books written by Correa. What was the difference? Well, I would say that it's a matter of talent verses craft. Hoyt does a workman like job, but she just doesn't have the story teller talent that Correa has. I'm reminded of a few side books in the Honor Harrington universe that were written by writers other than David Weber. They weren't bad books, but they had a very different feel to them than the books written by Weber.

I liked his Son of the Black Sword but none of the Monster Hunt books really grabbed me so I stopped reading them.

Have you tried his Dead Six series?

I find that most of the time, I tend not to like books where authors are writing in someone else's universe. Sometimes it works, but more often than not, the reason that I like a series isn't the world building, it's the author. When I think of some of the more successful franchises, such as Star Wars or Star Trek, they tend to start in other media and then authors use that back ground to set books. Trying to capture the feel of another author is difficult.
