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)
More action movie-esque fun from MHI. There is a great fight with a group of gargoyles that was a lot of fun. This is a great book to put between some of your more grim novels. Lightens the mood.
Between work and school I don't have much time to read but I love my audible book on my 1 hr commute everyday. I love Audible!!
This book made me laugh a lot. It's funny and has a lot of action. Reminds me of the early books in the Laurell K. Hamilton Anita Blake: Vampire Hunter series and Jim Butcher's Harry Dresden series before they became more wrapped up in the personal lives of the main characters and less about the monsters. The main character in this book has a very sarcastic sense of humor that gets him into a lot of trouble just like Harry and Anita!! If you enjoyed those books, you'll love this series. I'm almost done with the second book and I am enjoying it even more than the first book.
This series is F'n great. I was very happy to find that the writing and characters are as good as my other favorites like Sandman Slim and the Iron Druid. Thank you Larry.
I just love these books, especially the stories featuring these main characters. They are each heroes but are written in a way that always has you feeling that they are deeply human and each one an individual. Also, in my own Head Cannon, these stories take place in the same universe as The Dresden Files.
