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.

What the Critics Say

"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)

    "I had high hopes for Larry Correia"

    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.

    "Eh...."
    What would have made Monster Hunter Vendetta better?

    Was way way out there.....a whole lot of story. I listened to the whole thing (20 hours). Wouldn't recommend.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    Um, there were a LOT of monsters. Kinda cheesy, it was "ok".


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Some things like the gangster gnomes..... Really?


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    ":( Disappointed"
    What disappointed you about Monster Hunter Vendetta?

    I have not even been able to get thru the first chapter. It is not holding my interest.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Larry Correia again?

    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.


    What didn’t you like about Oliver Wyman’s performance?

    It doesn't hold my attention. First time by this author & Narrator.

    "Larry Correia has done it again"

    Larry Correia has done it again, another mind bending, jaw dropping, edge of your seat fantastic ride! Monster Hunter Vendetta starts up a year or so after the adventures/battles end in the first book. All of my favorite monster hunters from the first book were still here sarcastic and belligerent as ever. After destroying the attempt of the old ones to invade earth, now there is a new threat to humanity witch MHI must deal with. Full of the technical action sequences and great dialog sequences that I have come to expect from Correia. Correia subtly hints to a story line that could be used in the third book but doesn’t focus too much on it as many seem to do when writing a series.

    "Lunatic Laughs!"
    If you could sum up Monster Hunter Vendetta in three words, what would they be?

    Fantastic, Fun & Fearless


    What did you like best about this story?

    How crazy out-there the story is. How much fun killing monsters can be!


    Have you listened to any of Oliver Wyman’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes, books 1 & 4 of this series. Love them all.


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

    Laugh, laugh, & laugh some more. It's a real 'feel good' story if you're a little twisted!


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "Very dissapointed"

    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.

    Story
    "Take the ball from MHI and just keeps running."

    Okay, I was really happy with Monster Hunter International.

    There is nothing that I said about that book that doesn't apply to this, with the exception of the stuff about how MHI was an excellent "First book". Actually, I could even expound on that, because one didn't realise how much of the stage for this book was being set.

    I expect that the author had this book in mind while he was writing the first; we learn more details about things that we thought were fully explained, or some things we just accepted as they were. It's handled expertly. A few of the threads from the first book are resolved, a few left open, more threads are introduced. Relationships develop and change.

    I was very relieved that the return of Grant Jeffries did not re-open the romantic competition-- that's a settled thing, nobody's gonna mess with that.

    Again, the reader is spectacular. Again, exposition is handled deftly, and with an excellent plot device. Again, there is a broad reliance on archetypes and the Lovecraft influence is even more defined (they don't call the Necronomicon by name. But they don't give it another one, either). Another fantasy icon is plagiarised, but I won't spoil which one... and it's done well.

    Again, there's a single storyline that's followed to completion. There's a lot more left open for the series to pursue, but it's not so much that it takes any satisfaction away from the storyline, and there's no "Your princess is in another castle" hooey.

    And Again, you'll buy the next book because you want more of the same. I know I will.

    "A must read series!"

    I can't believe I just discovered Larry's books. He is a brilliant writer keeping the reader on the edge of their seat throughout each and every book! I read his Hard Magic series first and hope there is another book in it. I believe his writings will become classics in the field.

    "Send is as good as the first"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Most of my friends are into the same things I am and this is Buffy the Vampire slayer to the tenth power. Its a classic 80's unlikely hero who has the power but has no idea how to use it. I love the concept and the introductions of all the monsters


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    G-gnome, he was straight up gangster LOL. A true Scarface in every sense


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When G-gnome and Z was fighting, well hell the whole Gnome encounter was off the hook had me rolling. And when you are walking around with headphones on and randomly start laughing people start to wonder.


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

    Laugh for the most part, it was the one lines and the character development that was great. Agent Frank's dry humor is just great. And gain can't for get about the Gnomes


    Any additional comments?

    A must read if you want something different

    "Series must be read in order"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Larry Correia, has an amazing imagination and tells a story very different than any I've ever read. This series (this is book two) is fantastic, action doesn't stop from the start.


    What about Oliver Wyman’s performance did you like?

    I never heard him narrate before this series but he's great and does voices and emotions fantastic.


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

    Just so enjoyable, can't wait for the next book to come out......


    Any additional comments?

    I finished this in 1 1/2 days. I really recommend highly if you enjoy this paranormal urban genre.
