Publisher's Summary

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.

What the Critics Say

"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)

    Story
    "Highly entertaining. Just an absolute blast."
    What made the experience of listening to Monster Hunter Vendetta the most enjoyable?

    Fantastic story builds very nicely on the 1st book. Oliver Wyman does a terrific job. You can almost see what is going on in your imagination.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Very unpredictable! Just when you think you know where the story is going, something else happens.


    Which character – as performed by Oliver Wyman – was your favorite?

    How can you not like Owen Zistava Pitt!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    A movie could not do this book justice. Too much good stuff would have to be left out.


    Any additional comments?

    Can't wait to start the 3rd installment to this fun series. Go MHI!!

    Story
    "Better than the first!"

    If you liked the first of this series then all you need to know is this one is better. The story is more action packed, the zombies are still zombies and Owen is still a badass meathead. There are dark forces at work and you can tell this is just the tip of the iceberg. The narration is as good as the first of the series. Can't wait to start the next to see what the old ones are going to try to throw at Owen next.

    Story
    "Five star pulp fiction"

    Probably have nightmares giving this five stars. This is a very long pure low rent pulp fiction novel filled with corny cliches that make you cringe. Why five stars? For me it did exactly what, I hope, the author intended, It entertained me. I loved the listen and even came to expect and enjoy the cheesy cliches and over the top story line. Not sure how Correia found a publisher with enough foresite (and guts?) to publish these novels but I am glad he did.

    "Another Homerun."
    Where does Monster Hunter Vendetta rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    One of the best. Tons of action and dead monsters.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The lead "Z" is still my fav, but not by much, because I really liked all the characters.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I almost did, but I have to eat and sleep sometime.

    "The series just gets better"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    If they had read/listened to the first book I wouldn't need to - it's more of the same fantastic story.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Love Agent Franks in this book. I know we are meant to hate him but the more we find out about him the more we understand.


    Any additional comments?

    If you enjoyed the first book, then you'll love the second. Further character development, more background to the story and more information on the characters past and the secrets they didn't share in the first book.

    "Another outstanding listene!"
    What made the experience of listening to Monster Hunter Vendetta the most enjoyable?

    Another win for both the author and the narrator. Both are awesome! Can't wait for the next book in this series. The narrator is such a perfect fit and brings this 2nd book in the series to life like the first one never ended. Overall, this is my favourite series to listen to currently and have bought them all! You won't be disappointed!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Well Owen Z Pitt of course! Although, I have to say Oliver's voice portrayal of Skippy in both this and the first book had me laughing out loud,during my workout no less, making people steer a wide berth around me while giving me odd looks...


    What does Oliver Wyman bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Oh, he absolutely brings the story to life, and does so for all of the Monster Hunter series. This voice actor was a perfect fit. I have downloaded other books based just on the fact that he is narrating. He has an amazing ability to not only alter voices so much you forget it's the same person, but to pitch the humorous sarcasm so perfectly...it's simply a work of art.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes. I usually limit my listening to housework and gym but I couldn't with this one. I listened to and from work, while making dinner, and any other time I could get away with it. My daughter got so used to my laughing at, well, let's face it, nothing anyone else could figure out, she often just pointed to my ears, shook her head and walked away.


    Any additional comments?

    Awesome!

    "Awesome!"

    Definitly start with book 1, "Monster Hunters International" in order to understand many of the references in this book.

    Larry Correia has an amazing imagination and comes up with some of the craziest creatures. I think that in almost any other story I would have thought that some of them were just silly, but somehow, in the context of the story, they seemed perfectly plausible.

    "2nd Great Listen In The Series"

    I've enjoyed this second in the series as much as the first. Flows smoothly, fast paced and fun. Great narration, easy listen, and a break from my normal inclination towards epic fantasy. I'm looking forward to books 3 and 4!

    I still can't get over the fact that this series hooked me like it did, I took a chance and was rewarded, you can too!

    "Great series!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    yes, it is a fun, well-written sci-fi, that is frequently hilarious.


    What about Oliver Wyman’s performance did you like?

    He was a wonderful choice for the book. Clear voice and and nuances to characters.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I don't listen to any book in one sitting. My attention span isn't that long!


    Any additional comments?

    I would not recommend listening to this with children in ear-shot. There is not a lot of cursing, but enough that I wouldn't want families or neighbors to over hear.
