Publisher's Summary

In the second thrilling instalment in John Birmingham's best-selling Dave Hooper series, a dragon brings down the vice president's plane, a monster army is camped outside Omaha and an empath demon springs an undercover operation in New York.

Two bright geometric shapes, metallic flashes picked out in the morning sun, moving impossibly fast and straight amidst the visual clutter and chaos of forest and rock...

"Is it dragons, Dave, is that what it is? Because I'm not ready for dragons...."

New Orleans was just the beginning. New and different demons are breaking through all over America, and Dave Hooper has a new enemy with more guile and guts than the celebrity superhero, still stumbling in his role as champion. While his agent fields offers for movies and merchandise, Dave is tasked with ending a siege in Omaha, saving his friends and deciphering the underrealms' plans to take over the Earth.

As an ancient and legion evil threatens to destroy mankind, Dave has to decide what kind of man he wants to be and the nature of his role in this new world. He may not be the hero humanity deserves, but he's the only one we've got.

Enjoyable but...

I enjoyed this book & Sean Mangan’s performance was pretty good. I was hoping for a bit more humour from Dave though hearing Thresh talk as Trevor did often make me smile & occasionally giggle depending on what he was saying. I really like the human dialogue but the monster dialogue is kinda giving me the shits. I’ll definitely listen to the rest of the books but I think I’ll have a Dave vs Monsters holiday for a book or 2.

Sexist crap

Got sick of the sexist crap and gave up. There might be a reason to build up the main character as a sexist pig but I don’t care enough to continue wasting my brain power on it.

It's just so boring

Never would I ever have thought that a book about a superhero fighting (ha, like that happens) human eating orcs could be just so damn boring, nothing happens, nothing, except yet more multi page explanations of Dave's eating habits. We get it John, Dave needs to consume tens of thousands of calories to offset the metabolic impacts of his superpowers, you literally spent two. hours on it in the first book, we don't need endless detail about his diet every chapter.

I literally ramped audible up to 1.4x speed so I could blow through the book as quickly as possible, I'll be skipping the third in the series.

One of those book you are never sure if you like the main character

Not sure if I like the main character Dave, but he does seem to know how to get him self into trouble very easily and I wouldn't mind some of the skills myself but I won't say which ones
Overall if it's a wet Wednesday afternoon and you don't have anything major to do its a good listen.
