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 narrator is great he really has a great voice and tone for each character.
HP Lovecraft has always been in the themes of this series but here the decent into madness was manifest in a really interesting take.
G.Gnome is the money.
This is a great book only a few sittings it is a non stop action movie for your ears.
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.
"DING, DING ROUND 2 OF A MONSTER BATTLE"
After the first book, "Monster Hunter International", I knew I'd be in for a treat and was not disappointed. The prequel was really good, pity ratings only go to 5 a really great monster battle of a book.
Love this series - action gore monsters
Can't stop listening. Cheesy but good! I recommend them
"A good sequel,"
yes i mean its a good book, with humour and gangster gnomes. yes you heard me gangster gnomes. what up dog. u feeleng me bruv gnomes. i have to dof my cap to Larry just for that. in other parts it continues the series on well and develops characters well.
my favorite character is hard to say, it could be G gnome. but owen is normally a good shout as he is the main character. but you know what Its got to be agent franks. (interesting fact the word Agent comes from the roman latin agentes who were like the secret police of the ancient world). yes ill go with franks as he tops out and king bad ass level 10.
Oliver wyman in my opinion is a solid narrator who should be chosen more often. I cant tell you how many books ive started listening to with a poor american narrator that ruins the story. this felllow is really a good and really spins his own emotions into the tale. give it more of a feel than some of the dry renditions u hear.
mostly humour and kick ass excitment.
please people listen to this book, its fun and action packed and does it well without taking itself to seriously which i love.
"2nd in the series that I'm 100% happy I found"
When you find a great series, you want to dig your teeth into it - the world that Larry Correia has created in these is brilliant, it's so close to the real world that it could very well exist without us knowing, add in the amazing reading by Oliver Wyman, this series just becomes astounding
The main characters are great, realistic, and are fun to learn about, along with the stories in the series being engaging - while listening the books I've broken out into grins, laughter & quite often lost in the story and almost missing my train station
With the story moving on a-pace, great characters like Franks, the superb team that support Owen the monster hunting accountant, and when you hear them being portrayed in the audio book, you can see them in your mind, and I've already cast a film (e.g. Margot Robbie for Holly), this only makes the books better & more enjoyable
If you want a really well written series, that is incredibly read, then you can't go far wrong with this book & the series - I've spread these books to friends who have spread them to family & it's gone from there, all from me finding one on here... you couldn't do that if the book & series weren't great!
Download, listen & enjoy - this series is brilliant and I can't wait for more!!!
