In a departure from the first two books, this one is all about Earl Harbinger, centenarian werewolf and leader of Monster Hunter International. “Z” and the others don’t appear at all. Earl is summoned by an old friend to a small town in Michigan in order to deal with a threat rooted in their common past.
This was the best one in the series so far. It has a more serious tone than the first two as it delves deep into Harbinger’s origin story.
