#1 IN A NEW EPIC FANTASY SERIES from Monster Hunter series creator and "New York Times" best-selling author, Larry Correia! After the War of the Gods, the demons were cast out and fell to the world. Mankind was nearly eradicated by the seemingly unstoppable beasts, until the gods sent the great hero, Ramrowan, to save them. He united the tribes, gave them magic, and drove the demons into the sea. Ever since the land has belonged to man and the oceans have remained an uncrossable hell, leaving the continent of Lok isolated. It was prophesized that someday the demons would return, and only the descendants of Ramrowan would be able to defeat them. They became the first kings, and all men served those who were their only hope for survival. As centuries passed, the descendants of the great hero grew in number and power. They became tyrannical and cruel, and their religion nothing but an excuse for greed. Gods and demons became myth and legend, and the people no longer believed. The castes created to serve the Sons of Ramrowan rose up and destroyed their rulers. All religion was banned and replaced by a code of unflinching law. The surviving royalty and their priests were made casteless, condemned to live as untouchables, and the Age of Law began. Ashok Vadal has been chosen by a powerful ancient weapon to be its bearer. He is a Protector, member of an elite militant order of roving law enforcers. No one is more merciless in rooting out those who secretly practice the old ways. Everything is black or white, good or evil, until he discovers his entire life is a fraud. Ashok isn t who he thinks he is, and when he finds himself on the wrong side of the law, the consequences lead to rebellion, war and destruction. About"Son of the Black Sword: " "This book has everything I like in fantasy: intense action scenes, evil in horrifying array, good struggling against the darkness, and most of all people gorgeously flawed human beings faced with horrible moral choices that force them to question and change and grow." Jim Butcher, creator of the"New York Times"best-selling Dresden Files "Best-selling fantasy author Correia casts a compelling spell with this India-influenced series opener. . . . Correia skillfully sets in motion this story of plots within plots, revealing complex, sympathetic characters and black-hearted villains with equal detail and insight. Full of action, intrigue, and wry humor, this exciting series launch promises many more thrills to come." "Publishers Weekly"(starred review) "Fans who like Correia s fast-moving style will be pleased with the plethora of action scenes, and epic fantasy readers interested in delving into a new universe should be equally satisfied. A solid choice for admirers of Brent Weeks and Brandon Sanderson s Mistborn series." "Library Journal" "Correia is, above all, a storyteller, and he weaves a unique and entertaining tale.Without question, his action sequences pop on the page, his magic system has a nice wrinkle, and he has the foundations laid out for some excellent character growth as the series continues. . . . [A] definite hit." "Bookreporter" "The lore here is fascinating and well told. I enjoyed learning the history of the world and the legend of Ramrowan. The politics are just complicated enough to feel real without being too difficult to follow. Where the book truly shines, however, is in the characters. All are well drawn and distinctively voiced." "SFCrowsnest" I loved the book, it was great, fast paced, with wonderful characters, and also a lot of wonderful scenes that screamed to be painted. Larry Elmore, legendary, award-winningartist, and cover artist for"Son of the Black Sword." About the Urban Fantasy of Larry Correia: [A] no-holds-barred all-out page turner that is part science fiction, part horror, and an absolute blast to read. "Bookreporter.com" If you love monsters and action, you ll love this book. If you love guns, you ll love this book. If you love fantasy, and especially horror fantasy, you ll love this book. "Knotclan.com" A gun person who likes science fiction or, heck, anyone who likes science fiction will enjoy [these books]. . . The plotting is excellent, and Correia makes you care about the characters I read both books without putting them down except for work . . . so whaddaya waitin for? Go and buy some . . . for yourself and for stocking stuffers. Massad Ayoob This lighthearted, testosterone-soaked sequel to 2009's "Monster Hunter International" will delight fans of action horror with elaborate weaponry, hand-to-hand combat, disgusting monsters, and an endless stream of blood and body parts.

#6 in multiple New York Times bestseller Larry Correia’s Monster Hunter series. GO BIG OR GO HOME When Monster Hunter International's top hunter, Owen Zastava Pitt, was given a tip about some hunters who had gone missing in action, he didn’t realize their rescue mission would snowball into the single biggest operation in MHI's history. Their men are being held prisoner in a horrific nightmare dimension, and the only way to reach them is through the radioactive ruins of a monster-infested war zone. As if that wasn't bad enough, it’s also the home base of the powerful creature behind the devastating attacks on the Last Dragon and Copper Lake. It turns out ancient gods of chaos really hate trespassers. But this god picked a fight with the wrong crew, and now MHI wants payback. Calling on their allies, a massive expedition is formed, and with the odds stacked against them, a legion of hunters goes to war. It’s D-Day at the City of Monsters.
