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)
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!!!
The whole Monster Hunter series is excellent and the books are getting better with each new one. All the Monster Hunter books have plenty of action, humor and heart. If you want to read books with vampires, werewolves, and monsters that isn't written for 14 year old girls these books are for you. I'm eagerly awaiting the next book in the series.
I really wish there were more of these books i went through all 3 far to quickly and now i am listening to them yet again. wonderful
The narrator sounded like he was trying to imitate Robert Stack from The Untouchables, only more smarmy and bored, even during the action sequences. Which I couldn't understand, as he was fine when providing character voices--consistent, different from each other, and emotional. I quit listening about 2.5 hours into the book when I realized I didn't like the main character enough to put up with the narrator any more.
The central character. All the characters seemed to be walking cacti, growling and chest bumping at each other (women included).
I'm looking for a new series with magic, action, and interesting, evolving characters. I had to stop listening halfway through this one. This was more of a catalogue of evil creatures, horrible deaths, bodily fluids, and chainsaw type mayhem. I much prefer characters, including villains, to have self-awareness, an emotional life, and development! I loved Jim Butcher's Dresden Files series, but of course I've yummed all 13 books down, and the next one will be a good old time coming. A Discovery of Witches was a bit heavy on description, but every bit of it moved the plot along and it was a good experience.
I don't think I'll try this author again for a while. This was more like skimming the horror comic books.
Was way way out there.....a whole lot of story. I listened to the whole thing (20 hours). Wouldn't recommend.
Um, there were a LOT of monsters. Kinda cheesy, it was "ok".
Some things like the gangster gnomes..... Really?
Again, eh. It was on sale and lots of hours of listening while sitting in traffic. Again, wouldn't highly recommend but it was kind of entertaining.
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.
Love Sci-Fi, Paranormal, Fantasy & Alternate History genres. Prefer action over romance.
Fantastic, Fun & Fearless
How crazy out-there the story is. How much fun killing monsters can be!
Yes, books 1 & 4 of this series. Love them all.
Laugh, laugh, & laugh some more. It's a real 'feel good' story if you're a little twisted!
I love paranormal series. This one is hilarious like Harry Dresden, Gruesome, violent, bizarre & a whole lot of crazy like Richard Kadrey & reminiscent in some ways of P.N. Elrod, while totally being it's own unique creation! I read all the reviews & then started w/this book (#2) then I read #4 & then #1. Next I'll read #3. I didn't have a problem reading out of order & had no trouble starting with this book after reading reviews of entire series. Liked it so much I had to go back & finish the series. It can be cheezy, it can be silly, but it's all in all so much smash-'em-up fun it's a blast. Entertaining! Out of 1, 2 & 4 I liked 2 & 4 the best.
Don't know why i am so irritated by this book, but i just cant stand the main character. It seems the author just loves to make his heroes the biggest, baddest people that like to yell and make smart ass remarks. While i really enjoyed the first book, the novelty has wore off and it seems that for lack of story we get just a series of insults and smart remarks trying to show how clever the characters can be. Don't think i will be finishing this series.
