Franks vs EVERYBODY
Reviewed in the United States on August 4, 2019
Special Agent Franks of the top secret Monster Control Bureau has been killing supernatural threats on behalf of the US government for hundreds of years. He’s a legend, and he’s literature. He’s also an unstoppable killing machine. He’s kept his side of the bargain, so long as the government kept theirs: never to make anther being like Franks.
But now he’s learned that another top secret government organization is making an army of living dead to serve as super-soldiers. Someone has decided Franks is obsolete and must be disposed of.
Franks disagrees, but when he’s framed for murder and terrorism he finds himself the target of government and private monster hunters.
It’s Franks vs. the whole Monster Hunter universe. And it is glorious. One fight to the death after another in a running battle of set pieces. Throw-down after throw-down after throw-down!
I’m not the biggest fan of Correia’s MHI books, preferring his other series, but he excels at writing hardened, killers who kill bad things and Franks is the ur-example.
