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.

    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.

    "Why DO I like this book?"

    By all rights, this is not a book I should enjoy. It's basically chaos and mayhem, one outrageous brawl after another. But the core story is fascinating and the narrator is absolutely terrific. You just get sucked right in to the entire experience. Definitely McDonalds for the brain, but totally enjoyable!

    Story
    "testosterone cocktail"
    What did you love best about Monster Hunter Vendetta?

    I listen to audio books while I work and this one really kept me entertained. No down time.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I've always been a monster story fan so this was right up my alley and even after already reading the first books I didn't get bored.


    What does Oliver Wyman bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Oliver Wyman read the story in a way where even if I wasn't fully concentrated on it 100% of the time I always knew who was talking because of his ability to adapt his voice and accent to the character as needed.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I was always happy to get to work partially because I wanted to get back to the story.

    "Endless stream of cheesy oneliners - great fun"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    If you like Die Hard movies like me, this is for you.


    What other book might you compare Monster Hunter Vendetta to and why?

    I read the Iron Druid chronicles before and this is a good match for it, even if I prefered the world of the Iron Druid.

    Story
    "Fast Paced and Invigorating"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    It is an acquired taste. Correia writes with pretty gratuitous violence, but it is done in a very light-hearted and comic fashion which makes the 'blood-and-guts' action very palatable. I would not suggest seeing a movie based on this unless you really love horror.


    What about Oliver Wyman’s performance did you like?

    The reader really gives the characters personality as his accents and intonations are excellent in the way they are used.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Do not see this movie!

    "It's what you expect after the first book..."

    Didn't care too much for the main antagonist in this one. He was only interesting towards the end. Nothing different about the characters or flow from the first book. It was entertaining and an easy listen. Narration is great. Later.

    Story
    "Cool Monsters, Guns, Ammo and explosive action"
    If you could sum up Monster Hunter Vendetta in three words, what would they be?

    Explosive Fun Ride!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Earl Harbinger, He' a Take names, Kick Ass No nonsense Bad @$$! with a passion for his team and his work. I love his whit and timing.


    What does Oliver Wyman bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Oliver id a great job defining each character I had a great time listening to him. He breathes life into the reading that I greatly enjoyed.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I laughed quite a bit throughout the story Larry has a great way of adding levity to the tense situations.
    OH there was a part in the book where a certain village was attacked that did make me sad. I'll let you find out what happened ;-)


    Any additional comments?

    Thank You Larry for a Great series and Oliver for a fantastic reading. I thought I would only say that about Jim Dale but Oliver Wyman has now been added to the list of preferred narrators I will be looking out for.
