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 am a Grandmother who has read horror and science fiction and fantasy all of my life and this story is one of the best so far.
I'm just an old goat that like magic, dragons, elves, dwarves, wizards and witches. I read for intertainment and like long fast paced books that have just a few central characters....Loved Iron Druid series and Monster Hunter series. I live on a farm in SC and have given all the birds and animals that hang in my yard names and magical powers, and sometimes it seems like they really do.
I loved the action and fie power of the Monster Hunters.
Thhe book had a great ending especially finally getting to fight the tattooed man..
i can't pick a favorite scene, the whole book is great from start to finish.
I'm new to audio books but happened to have a kindle keyboard model which will reed the audio books. Now it is beside my bed every night reading me to sleep I really loved this book!!!!!
The very top of the list
I liked the story line, nothing seemed implausible.
The personalities of the characters. Each and every voice was distinct and easily recognizable.
The movie tag line would read Monster Hunter International, We Survived and So Will You!
I chose this book thinking my husband and son would like it. I never thought that I would love it as much as I did. I plan to buy the series.
I love this series!!!! This book caught my interest from the first paragraph. Oliver Wyman's narration was brilliant! He is one of my new favorite narrators. His character's voices were easily identifiable and unique. I can't say enough good things about the story, the characters or the narration. Can't wait to start the next one!
This book took me by surprise. I was crossing my fingers that it would be just as good as the title. And hand down it grabs you and sucks you into the world of monster hunting. The series lives up to the hype. If I were you get prepared to love killing monsters. That chapter when they are on the boat was just riviting. it is a best buy hands down.
Not much to tell! I used to read alot, but now that I need reading glasses, I enjoy listening to books instead of having to wear glasses!
This was a pretty darned good read, even for a women! This was definitely a man's man book, but I thoroughly enjoyed it. It was interesting and never lagged. I loved it.
Love fantasy and science fiction
Oliver Wyman does such an excellent job that it is hard to choose a specific character. I enjoyed his performance of all of the charachers.
I loved the humor, wit and sarcasm that came across throughout this book. It held my interest and keep me involved to the end. I listened with a smile and laughed...a lot.
I definitely want more from this author and narrator and can't wait to get the next book!
I really wish there were more of these books i went through all 3 far to quickly and now i am listening to them yet again. wonderful
Tell me a story :)
They need to rewrite the whole thing over. Oh and maybe give me a refund.
Certainly not another story from Larry Correia.
ORIGINALITY!!! The narrator sounded drunk or maybe bored the whole time. I usually listen to these books at work to keep me awake and help the time go faster. I fell asleep twice listening to this book.
Well, let's see: I was desappointed, irritated, bored and angry I wasted a whole $17 on such a bad book.
Save yourself a headache and take your credit/money somewhere else.
