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)
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.

Larry Correia has done it again, another mind bending, jaw dropping, edge of your seat fantastic ride! Monster Hunter Vendetta starts up a year or so after the adventures/battles end in the first book. All of my favorite monster hunters from the first book were still here sarcastic and belligerent as ever. After destroying the attempt of the old ones to invade earth, now there is a new threat to humanity witch MHI must deal with. Full of the technical action sequences and great dialog sequences that I have come to expect from Correia. Correia subtly hints to a story line that could be used in the third book but doesn’t focus too much on it as many seem to do when writing a series.
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!!!
Monster Hunter Vendettta keeps me interested for more. Oliver Wyman, the narrator, does an excellent job portraying each of the book's charactors. He never leaves a doubt on who is speeking throughout the entire book. I'm not certain my imagination could create the characters as well if I had read the book.
Each character in the book is very well developed. No one takes a "back seat" to the leading Man, Owen Pitt. The author, Larry Correia ensures that all the characters can stand alone and stand out.
Oliver Wyman has created a voice for each of the characters in the book. When a character speaks, I can imagine how they look (physically).
Yes, if I had several days to do nothing at all, I would have listen to the book without stopping. However, that's not my life!
This is one book in a series. It is worth your time!
While not the audio equivalent of a page-turner, it was a very good listen for me.
fast paced and entertaining but I can do with a little less cussing. The story line is really interesting but the ending always seem a kind of rediculous but it is still a very interesting story.
This was a great continuation of the Monster Hunters adventures. Read Monster Hunter International first or you may be a little lost.
Oliver Wyman did a great job with the characters.
Work a credit for sure!
Satisfied Audible listener since 2002. I mostly listen to Sci-fi and anything by Stephen King.
The fun continues from book one, more Pitt v the Old Ones and there earthly counterparts along with help from the MHI team. Interesting take on old fairy tale tropes continues. Just fun to listen to. To bad there is only one more MHI book to enjoy now! More please, quickly!!!
