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 thought the first book was phenomenal and did not think he could top it. I was wrong! Both books are worth the cost. Actually could not wait for my monthly credits and paid full price for this one and MH Alpha. Dont regret doing it. My only regret is not picking these up sooner. Looking forward to his next book later this month! I know where my credits are going to!!!
The human terminator
If Tarzan was adopted by a survivalist family and had to learn how to fight monsters, this could be his story. Lol.
He does a very good job of giving the listener a feeling for the characters.
Rambo fights Dracula.
A fun story winding around a very well thought out structure.
If you enjoyed MHI, you will like Vendetta. The story flies along, with action, action, action. We also learn more about the back stories of a number of the characters, including the frightening Agent Franks. The narration is excellent, brings the insanity to life! Highly recommended.
I'm just an old goat that like magic, dragons, elves, dwarves, wizards and witches. I read for intertainment and like long fast paced books that have just a few central characters....Loved Iron Druid series and Monster Hunter series. I live on a farm in SC and have given all the birds and animals that hang in my yard names and magical powers, and sometimes it seems like they really do.
This book is as good or better than the first in the series. I've lost a lot of sleep because I just couldn't turn it off!!!! I hope all the audible books I buy here are just close to this good!!!
I do like kick butt chick vampire slayers
I have really enjoyed the whole series, very different to my usual genre.
Whilst the narrator is really good with this story line I found some of his characters voices very similar so could sometimes be confusing on which character was talking.
Unlike the other books in this series, this books chapters jumped backwards and forwards in time. I found this confusing and twice had to check I did not have the shuffle advice turned on.
All in all a good book and story
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!!!!!
We learn more about our favorite characters from the first Monster Hunter book in this volume. The narration is just as good as the first audio book, the book is still fast paced and interesting, although the writing in this volume seemed a little less cohesive and not as perfectly structured as the first novel. I thoroughly enjoyed all three of the Monster Hunter books and look forward to book 4. Well worth the listen.
I cried at one of the scenes at the orc village. In an otherwise fun, violent and action filled book, it was a poignant and heart wrenching moment.
5 stars is i love and i will read agani and again. 1 is i hate and i never want to hear about it ever again. YES = :))) - NO= :'(
So far i loved each book Larry wrote, and this isn't an exception
Its sooooo good.... no negative points what so ever. and i won't blablabla about this.
if you loved the first, then you will love this one.
cheers and enjoy :)
