Monster Hunter Memoirs: Sinners
If you haven’t read Grunge, the previous memoir by these fine collaborators, you should buy that first because that is where our primary character’s awesomeness is fully explicated. Oliver Chadwick Gardenier, Iron Hand, is literally on a mission from God.
Often you hear a book described as being non-stop action. With this one it is true. It has action ranging from dueling with multiple werewolves in a cemetery at night to action of a different kind with some of the more attractive denizens of New Orleans. I said the protagonist was on a mission from God; that doesn’t mean he’s religious, or anything . . . inhibiting like that.
N.O. is very strange for our friend Chad because the feds are not trying to pretend the mystic source of monsters does not exist. That would not work in the Big Easy. Everyone knows. So from having to be as clandestine as you can be, blowing off tons of ammo and slathering the streets with blood/ichor, our monster slayer is a public hero. It gets him laid frequently. Since he wound up with this assignment by fleeing an indiscretion with an underage trailer park elf, you would expect that of him. Great swashbuckling fun!!!
