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 have not even been able to get thru the first chapter. It is not holding my interest.
I will continue to listen to this for a little while longer to see if it catches my attention. I hope it changes soon or I will stop completely.
It doesn't hold my attention. First time by this author & Narrator.
Mom to Muppet Fans
Oliver Wyman does an outstanding job of changing voices for character. Larry Correia creates characters that you you can relate to, and storylines that keep you guessing! Love the whole series so far!
Lover of books and fictions reads.
Uber Awesome Explosions!
Owen Z Pitt, cause while he's a kickass monster hunter, he's still has that accounting skills he could fall back to later in life. I like practical people like that. I love how practical he is.
Undoubtedly the time travel scene.
LAughS! I really did not expect that. I bought the book because it was on sale. Never regret a moment!
As a rule, I don't read books with vampires in them until I had read Dracula (which I haven't yet) out of some book snob reason. I figure if the vampires are being shot/hacked to pieces, it didn't count. Yeah.
Also, I like how the characters approached problems with extreme prejudice and prefer to pile odds onto their favour rather than leaving things to chance and waiting for a 'Saviour' to save them. Caugh*HarryPotter*Caugh
If Z had been a character in the Potter world, well he would have given D the finger and bye, bye V-mot
Extreme Prejudice is sometimes a good thing.
I love this series! It is not what I normally like- the action-adventure stuff, but I find that the writing and the humor and the relationships between the hunters are so well written that I can't stop listening. The characters are really enjoyable. The main character, Owen is cool but I also really like that all of the supporting characters are so richly written. The gnomes rocked, I hope to see them again in a future book. Wyman is a fabulous narrator. It is easy to hear the difference between characters.
I was really pleased with my decision to continue with the second book of this series.
Great sense of action and humor is shown in this and the other two books - and I'm excited that there is a 4th one now.
I think these would be pretty good movie material on the level of something like Hellboy.
Wyman really makes the very tightly written characters to life as they were meant to be.
Entertaining all around.
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!!!
