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)
Second book in the series and it just keeps getting better. Action and humor. The author keeps developing the characters and we get to see why the main character has become the man he is today by the relationship he has with his father. I really enjoy this series and will finish the whole series back to back.
I'm a teacher, and it's my policy to NOT give any 100%s for work done by anyone especially me. ( I figure there's always room for improvement.) This series is entertaining, just think about the scene as in an alternate reality. If you're interested about more of my thinking, read my review of "Monster Hunters International". Thank you.
Just plain fun
The interesting part was that the author came up with a nice variety of bad guys and supernatural evil. Least interesting? Kind of predictable.
Not sure if I have.
No, it's too long, but the story was interesting and fun so I wanted to listen to all of it.
What I would call good, solid entertainment. I'll eventually get the next book in the series.
Great plot packed with action, more action and emotional at times. Can't wait for the next book in this series...The whole book is great but the main character can get a little annoying at times when he keeps getting beat up, but hey I understand that their team work is what makes the book complete!! Everyone counts "spoiler alert" and portraying Agent Franks as Frankenstein wow just great!!
Emotional moment when the monster recognizes Julie and didn't kill her because she was the only human who had shown him kindnes!!!!
Everything, he brings the book to life with all the voices performed. I really enjoyed the monster deep voices you can just picture them! If you have a vivid imagination like mine you know what I'm talking about!
I will recommend this book to listeners who enjoy a good action pack and interesting story line not much romance but it's well worth it. Got this book for my husband but I enjoyed it nonetheless!!!!!
I enjoy the Monster hunter books. But be Warned -Apparently The Author is some kind of right wing nut Job. He portrays The Feds(US Government) as Jack Booted Nazi Storm trooper who are Stupid/Corrupt and will do anything up to and including torture of Innocent and the Murder of Innocent people to keep the secret. If this just a minor part of the plot it would be one thing. But it is so prevalent in his writing even as a fictitious/fantasy /paranormal novel it is kind of disturbing.
I love a good chaotic adventure with creativity, heart and lots of laughs.
While “Monster Hunter International” set the series’ chaotic tone and has events that spill into this second book “Monster Hunter Vendetta”, the sequel’s story might be more interesting as a few welcome twists occur in this one. Owen Pit, the main character from the first book, not only has become enemy number one in the supernatural community, but this time he has to discover a traitor now among MHI, deal with his psychotic vampire in-laws, figure out a decades old MHI mystery, and figure out how to work with bodyguards who hate him assigned by the Feds…Oh, and he is trying to make wedding plans.
It’s a busy week for Owen, and the odd situations he finds himself dealing with take the plot on a chaotically terrifying yet still funny round of twists that will hold the listener’s attention even better than the first book. The narrator, Oliver Wyman, continues the good performances he had for the characters from the first book and once again applies the same level of attention to this one.
Highly recommended to those who like action packed modern fantasy horror featuring terrifying monsters and the bad to the bone characters trying to shoot said monsters.
I am already looking forward to hearing the next book! makes my trips to see my daughter fly by! The narration is excellent, and the story makes me look for reasons to hear it!
