Five days after Owen Zastava Pitt pushed his insufferable boss out of a 14th story window, he woke up in the hospital with a scarred face, an unbelievable memory, and a job offer.
It turns out that monsters are real. All the things from myth, legend, and B-movies are out there, waiting in the shadows. Officially secret, some of them are evil, and some are just hungry. On the other side are the people who kill monsters for a living. Monster Hunter International is the premier eradication company in the business. And now Owen is their newest recruit.
It's actually a pretty sweet gig, except for one little problem. An ancient entity known as the Cursed One has returned to settle a centuries-old vendetta. Should the Cursed One succeed, it means the end of the world, and MHI is the only thing standing in his way.
With the clock ticking towards Armageddon, Owen finds himself trapped between legions of undead minions, belligerent federal agents, a cryptic ghost who has taken up residence inside his head, and the cursed family of the woman he loves. Business is good.... Welcome to Monster Hunter International.

I listen to this series once every month. Yes it is that good. If you like guns, good book, you like real life problems with some great one liners, really good book. If you like hearing the case make fun of Twilight then this is the book for you.
Milo, or Z, I'm a gun nut at heart plus i like making things.
I love Scifi and Fantasy books.
Definitely one of my favorite series of all time. Z is just awesome.
I loved the variety of characters and how well you get to know and empathize with the main characters in the story. Come on, a world populated with Vampires, Werewolves and Zombies. You have to love it.
He did a great job of giving each character a different voice but not so unique that it was annoying.
Once you get going it is very hard to stop listening.
Folks, for audiobooks it's not just about the writer, it's also about the narrator...
My first book from Mr. Correia and it was fabulous. The guy does a great job of re-imagining the whole monster genre including vampires, werewolves, even aliens from other dimensions. The writing was fast paced and action packed, and the narration was one of the best I have experienced. Overall a great story to take time and listen too.
I am hooked...I just loved this whole series. Although perhaps not the greatest novel to be written it grabbed me right away and I just held on for the ride. This is a FUN journey and I want to sign up with MHI today! Good job Larry!
The stories and all the character
I can't thank of only one their so Minnie
Mom to Muppet Fans
Oliver Wyman does an outstanding job of changing voices for character. Larry Correia creates characters that you you can relate to, and storylines that keep you guessing! Love the whole series so far!
It was so hard to quick listen.There isn't a dull moment.
Harry Bosch meets Kaylin Neya
Used this book to drive 400 miles on a trip. never once wanted to stop, just because I would have to stop it!
Reader has a good voice, and the characters are exciting and fun
This is a very inventive series, written with the same kind of humor as Lawrence Block, just applied to a new reality of the monsters that live around us that we don't recognize. The narrator is a painfully slow reader, but increasing the read rate to 1.5 takes care of that, and makes the characters really POP! I will listen to every book in this series. I cannot wait for book number 4!
All of this series are excellent as are the other books by Larry Correra.
