Karina recently lent me a book by Larry Correia called Monster Hunter International: Legion. Great book, very diverting, and made me glad I didn't have the problems these guys have had. If you like lots of action with heavy-duty baddies and heavy artillery, go check it out.
I just want to talk about the dragon. (SPOILER ALERT)
"Management" lives in a cave deep under a ritzy hotel where he is surrounded by gold jewels, fancy cars piled high--and I do mean piled; it's not like he was going to drive them--precious works of art, expensive wines... You name it, he had it, or sold it off when he got bored. He also had super high-tech stuff and owned major stock in companies. (Loved the comments, "Yes, but they are using techonolgy that I own 40 percent of..." etc. Knowledge wasn't even at his clawtips--he had bluetooth and voice commands for that. Oh, this dragon was equipped.
I know what I want to be when I outlive the St. George's geas!
I so want to be Management, but even better for me, there's no such thing as PUFF (government bounty for monsters in Correia's books), so I can come and go as I please.
I'll be dreaming sweet dragon dreams tonight!
