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.

    "Wonderful sequel, I was captivated!"

    I rarely feel that any sequel is as good as the original but this comes darn close! The characters become like old friends as we begin to learn even more about them. The relationships become much clearer and we even begin to understand the family dynamic between Owen and his dad and brother as they are integral parts of this book. I'm already gearing up for the next book in the series! Well worth the price of admission,

    I don’t have a lot of time for reading, but Audible allows me to listen to all the great books that I thought I would never get to read.

    "Very entertaining."

    I was very surprised that I liked this series.
    I started listening to Monster Hunter series after a recommendation from a friend. I was pleasantly surprise how entertaining this series is. Definitely worth the time and credits to listen to the full series, and I am looking forward to the next book.

    "An outstanding reader and a spectacular series"

    This is book 2 of a 3-book series. I read all three of these in print before getting the audio version, and while I liked them very well in print, they are even better in audio format. Reader Oliver Wyman nails a wide variety of voices and personalities for everything from subhuman monsters to crusty century-old werewolves and a combat accountant. He does a good job on women's voices, too.

    Monsters of all types are real, and outbreaks are quietly suppressed by the various government agencies for multiple nations as well as private contractors. Monster Hunters International is one of those private groups, recruiting constantly to keep up with demand for their services and to offset the inevitable losses of personnel.

    One of those recruits is Owen Zasava Pitt, self-described combat accountant. He survived a werewolf attack to be recruited by MHI, and he is the focus of books one and two. He's died several times and gained some psychic and quasi-magical powers in the process. Being a team-member for MHI is a lot more interesting than being a CPA.

    In this volume, Owen is the target of a cult that wants to capture him for presentation to the evil Old Ones, thus acquiring favor. The US government agency, Monster Control Bureau, wants the leader of the cult, The Shadow Man, and is using Owen as bait. All of MHI is under threat by the evil cult, and they'll do anything to get to Owen, including attacking his family.

    All the favorite characters from the first book are back, including Skippy and his tribe. I won't spoil them for you by trying to describe them, but they are stalwart warriors, and fortunately they're on MHI's side.

    MHI has a wide variety of weaponry, and Milo, their own "Q," is constantly inventing new gadgets. It's a good thing, particularly when you find yourself beset by zombie elephants.
    The substance of a quote from the book: "Just where do you get dead elephants?" asks Owen. "The Internet," replies The Shadow Man.

    In a further complication, Owen has been scratched by a human zombie, and is doomed to die. In an effort to save his family and all of his friends, he sacrifices himself, going willingly into the domain of the Old Ones to satisfy their demands. He marries his true love, Julie, in a quick ceremony conducted by one of Skippy's tribe, but he can't even kiss her goodbye for fear of transmitting the deadly zombie virus. Feeling feverish and shaky, he heads into the underworld, hoping that he can do some damage before he dies...again.

    Monster Hunter International and Monster Hunter Vendetta should be read as a single book. Monster Hunter Alpha is more of a stand-alone book in the Monster Hunter universe.

    "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.

    "I enjoy the books BUT!!!"
    Any additional comments?

    I enjoy the Monster hunter books. But be Warned -Apparently The Author is some kind of right wing nut Job. He portrays The Feds(US Government) as Jack Booted Nazi Storm trooper who are Stupid/Corrupt and will do anything up to and including torture of Innocent and the Murder of Innocent people to keep the secret. If this just a minor part of the plot it would be one thing. But it is so prevalent in his writing even as a fictitious/fantasy /paranormal novel it is kind of disturbing.

    "terrific story and performance"

    Oliver Wyman completely nails the performance for all the characters. Larry developed characters that are very multi dimensional. pun intended. From Dorkus to Holly, Trip and Grant there is a lot going on. Oliver makes it all come alive with his well thought interpretations.

    a resounding well done to all involved.

    "More fun from our favourite dysfunctional meathead"

    Monster Hunter is an interesting series, given how unlovely the main protagonist is. He's a dysfunctional, anti-authoritarian manchild with staggering anger management issues and an inability to see nuance in any situation.

    Having said that, the series still works because the supporting characters are excellent - well fleshed out and interesting. The story line holds your attention throughout, and Oliver Wyman is one of the best narrators on Audible.

    Ignore the main character's many shortcomings, and this is a series which rewards 😀

    "Excellent followup to the first book."

    I loved Monster Hunter International so much I read it twice when I first got it. This was an amazing continuation of the original story. Oliver Wyman does an amazing job narrating and brining life to such original characters.

    "This second in the series is excellent"

    Corriea takes a story through so many cool and unexpected turns, with so much passion and excitement, you cannot stop listening. Oliver Wyman is other worldly in how he creates a veritable crew of voices for all the different characters. Simply Amazing. Larry sure knows how to create great characters you care about, and makes them so human, but what makes the listening so compelling is Olivers ability to act and bring the characters to vivid life.

    "Fast paced!"

    The characters are still as likable as in the first book, while the story always moves forward (with barely a moment to catch one's breath!). This is a book I couldn't put down!
