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.

    "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.

    Folks, for audiobooks it's not just about the writer, it's also about the narrator...

    Story
    "Good Part 2, Superb Narrator"

    Monster Hunter Vendetta is the second book in the Monster Hunter Series and much like the first it's filled with monsters, guns, violence, bloodshed, more guns, creepy creatures, heroes, more guns, villains, weird supernatural phenomena...and did I mention guns? Seriously though, I am officially hooked on this series. Correia does a great job of taking the monster genre to a whole new level. Although the second book in the series is not as riveting as the first - it was still a good story and I'm looking forward to listening to the third installment.

    What I'm most impressed with is the narrator, Oliver Wyman. I am his new fan. Mr. Wyman in my opinion is by far the best narrator in the audible stable. He has a wide-range of voices - I'm not sure I've heard him repeat one from another story yet - it's quite amazing. He does a great job of not only reading the story - but as a good narrator should - acting it out. (The guy must have had some thespian training along the way.)

    Overall Vendetta is good - it gets bogged down in the middle but then picks back up - and of course I was kept interested along the way with Mr. Wyman's expert narration.

    Story
    "Keeps getting better."

    This book series is quickly becoming my guilty pleasure. After wondering if I should even continue with Book one, I stuck with it and become more and more enjoyable. I immediately downloaded this book and now the third as well.

    It's cringingly corny at times, but the overall plot and the awesome bad guys makes up for it. In fact, I'm starting to feel the cheesy-ness adds to the whole charm.

    If you are looking for a simple adventure to escape into, with comic books style action, the world of Monster Hunter International is a great place.

    The voice performance is very consistent and very well done. It really adds to the quality of this title.

    Story
    "wasn't crazy about the first....second one...meh"

    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.

    Enough said...but there is a 15 word minimum so I'll add that it's worth your credit.

    "Monsters, Monsters everywhere . . . ."

    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.
