Accountant turned professional monster hunter Owen Zastava Pitt managed to stop the nefarious Old Ones' invasion plans last year, but as a result made an enemy out of one of the most powerful beings in the universe. Now an evil death cult known as the Church of the Temporary Mortal Condition wants to capture Owen in order to gain the favor of the great Old Ones. The Condition is led by a fanatical necromancer known as the Shadow Man. The government wants to capture the Shadow Man and has assigned the enigmatic Agent Franks to be Owen's full-time bodyguard, which is a polite way of saying that Owen is monster bait.
With supernatural assassins targeting his family, a spy in their midst, and horrific beasties lurking around every corner, Owen and the staff of Monster Hunter International don't need to go hunting, because this time the monsters are hunting them. Fortunately, this bait is armed and very dangerous.

"This lighthearted, testosterone-soaked sequel to 2009's Monster Hunter International will delight fans of action horror with elaborate weaponry, hand-to-hand combat, disgusting monsters, and an endless stream of blood and body parts." (Publishers Weekly)
...some things you didn't know you wanted to know. I love the characters and I truly hate to see when important ones die. The Narrator is really good as well.
action fast paces and good characters
easy to listen to and kepted you wanting more
i love everything i have listeded to of his
I'm a web developer based out of Sacramento, I listen to books while I work, and love audible.
This one was like an action flick that just has little too much action, to the point where you get tired of seeing it. It's rare for that to happen, but that's what this book does. And the hero is a bit too "tough" guy, being pissed at people that he really doesn't need to be pissed at. But overall it's till a fun read and I hear the next one is better.
YEP. I mean this stuff is cheesy but like in the way the show Arrow is bad but good. It's so action moviey and filled with tropes and cliches but FUN. You can't tell if the author aware of how bad is it but I hope not because that's kinda what makes it good. I went from the 1st book immediately to the second, the third one lost me a bit because it shifts main characters from the big dumb hero to the cheesy southern accent father figure but I might be sucked back in if the mood strikes.
This is a great series. There's definitely some language in this book (though, it seemed less than the first one).
Pitt and MHI find themselves facing the past in order to save the future. Pitt goes through hell and back again to save the world from the old ones again. We learn more about some of the other characters in the cast in this book, and it makes us want to spend even more time with them.
I caught myself laughing quite a bit with this one. I loved the "Troll" character, and how he spoke. I listened to the audible version, and that probably helped. The jokes were awesome.
All in all, a great book if you like supernatural (the show) type scenes/banter. Great stuff!
There were some great characters and fabulous moments. I really liked the "Troll."
Everything about the "Troll..." The Gnome scene was probably the best. I loved it.
The "Monster Hunter" series is something that your sane voice is telling you to hate, but the sheer ridiculousness of the story coupled with the over-the-top machismo and cheesiness somehow overrides that voice. In the end, you find yourself thoroughly enjoying the ride and groaning as required.
This book is like a comic book sans art work. What is fun is how the author has liberally pulled upon other references (think H.P. Lovecraft, Bram Stoker, etc.) and brought them along for the ride. The second book in the series, it did a good job of continuing the story from the first book. Although this book could stand on it's own, you'll be much better situated if you start with book one.
In summary. if you have a good sense of humour and can tolerate ridiculous situations and dialogue, you will enjoy this book. If this isn't your cup of tea, then avoid this series. I'm just crazy enough to have found it very enjoyable.
I like the way Larry Correia writes. His character often has conversations with himself that I've had with myself and I find it hilarious. He keeps the pace action packed and there aren't any dull moments.
Earl Harbinger. King of the Werewolves, enough said.
He did all of them well.
Plot turns and action continually keep you in a state of being on a "cliffhanger."
