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)
I like the story line but the author is a bit of a windbag and tends to drag a lot of the fight scenes on forever. Narrator does a decent job but reads slowly, this book could easily have been a 17 hour audio book if the narrator spoke at a normal rate.
Sure. It's a fun book that's doesn't take much attention to listen too.
It was a little over the top at times. I know it's fantasy, but still.....
Didn't care too much for the main antagonist in this one. He was only interesting towards the end. Nothing different about the characters or flow from the first book. It was entertaining and an easy listen. Narration is great. Later.
I have never heard any other narrator make the simple chapter number sound so ominous and riveting. His voices and accents are superb.
Hello, my name is Teresa and I'm an addict.
I love the game Plants verses Zombies and during some of the book while they were killing zombies, I kept having visions of the game but with the characters in the book. I also love the gnomes, laughed so hard with their antics. Larry Correia is original. If you enjoy his book go on the authors web page and read some of his antics there, very funny stuff especially the Lagoon ride.
Yes, love the well written action, details about the weapons, and well thought out twists and turns in the story
Yes, all very good
Definitly the character dynamics, and non stop action
Colin, a natural born underdog and scrapper.
Colins reunion with Julie, after going through that they both deserve medals
This was my favorite of the three Monster Hunter books I've listened to so far. (Yes, I know it's second in the series but I listened to this after book 3.) It got a bit much in the last 30 minutes or so but otherwise I loved it. The first book had very long action scenes. I like the descriptive detail but they got to be a little long. This book had action but those scenes were, for the most part, no so long that I felt tired afterward.
Narrator was great and does a good job with women's voices - doesn't make them sound like whiny school girls like some male narrators do.
Currently a local truck driver who has hours to listen to my audio books. I am hooked, some of my fellow drivers enjoy them also
The cast of characters are an interesting bunch of misfits with alot of action
Both Owen and Earl are great
Mr Wyman does a great job on all of the characters Owen is the best
The big battle was edge of the seat stuff
Keep up the good work Looking forward to reading more of your books
