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)

    "ONCE YOU'VE TRIED GNOME, YOU CAN'T GO HOME !"

    Yes Monsters are real. Not in a 'Monsters Inc.' way but in a diabolical way. If you like the plots catastrophic, gore in streams, heavy duty weaponry and your humour plentiful and dark then the Monster Hunter series is for you. I wish I could give the series a 4.5 it is that much fun! Oliver Wyman is a genius. I cannot add up how many voices, human or not, that he does in the books but they are all distinctive and many times down right scary. Start with Monster Hunter International and settle in for hours of fun but keep your lights on at night and maybe during the day as well.

    "Much better than the first"

    After the first installation, I left the series alone for a bit. It was a decent listen, but there were some irksome things (like the droning on about weapons) that just didn't lead me to want to pick another up right away. Add to that that I didn't find the synopsis of Vendetta very interesting (it sounded like it'd be cliched and painstakingly-so). However, I'm glad I was wrong. The guns are still here, but we get more story more than the explicit explanation of each and every one weapon Owen picks up.

    Second-in-series books typically aren't so hot, but so much happens in this book that it's like a coaster ride that just won't quit. We've got a mystery with twists, we've got action and we get LOTS of background info and story on many of the characters from the first book as well as the second. Owen comes more into his abilities as we see him "level up" both in "power" and influence, so it's not tedious exposition either; you actually WANT to dive more into Owen's flashbacks.

    There's very little I disliked in this tale. Sometimes Owen can be slow and repetitive and there can be a LOT of characters (both good and bad) to keep track of, but it's nothing that ruined the experience for me.

    Adding the next installment to my library right after I publish this review :)

    In my opinion, a good story evokes emotion. It'll make me laugh, angry, or cry. But it can't just be words on a page. It has to do something

    "Series Still is FAB-U-LOUS"

    Still love it! Its still good! Its still unpredictable, and I will listen up for more. Thank you Larry. . . And Oliver whose voice has made all this come alive. I love the southern and country accents in particular. Oliver just nails that. Guess you have to grow up around em to feel the authenticity.

    Now don't piss me off by trying to change up narrators mid-stream. Many a great audio book has been defiled (RUINED) by not keeping the winning combo (writer and author) together. Gotta keep it the same and I'll keep buying. Good luck

    Yes, the characters with the voice of Oliver Wyman come to life and display a strong passion to uphold good.

    I find the strong male character theme and end of world destruction similar to the Robert Jordan Wheel of time series.

    I have not.


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

    "Offing Zombies with Maximum Prejudice!"
    Would you listen to Monster Hunter Vendetta again? Why?

    It's a rip!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Monster Hunter Vendetta?

    Getting rid of a Zombie Bear is best achieved by smashing your fist through its chest cavity, depositing a live hand grenade in its guts and running like hell,


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

    Believability, if that's possible!


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

    What the hell was that?


    Any additional comments?

    Wonderfully funny book, with a Tom Clancy-like detailed description of the latest in weaponry for dispatching a variety of undead creatures.

    "An excellent follow up."

    Following an outstanding novel can be tricky and most attempts seem to fall short. Larry Correia does not succumb to this and gives us an exciting second glimpse into the world of Owen Z Pitt and his band of monster hunters. The adrenaline laced writing combined with the stellar performance of Oliver Wyman will not disappoint the fans of the original book.

    Would you listen to Monster Hunter Vendetta again? Why?

    Sure, the voice was well done and the story was an interesting twist on fantasy lore.


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

    I liked how things were not the standard scifi fantasy norm. Made it slightly laughable and charming

    "Wild left turns make for a fun book"

    I really just like this series! I thought I would die laughing when I realized where Agent Franks got his name, and hearing Franks make jokes is just weird, but hysterical. This is a very complex story, told (and read) in a straightforward manner. I'm not familiar with guns but I can follow along fine. The snark is still alive and kicking, and even though I've listened to 2 other books since finishing this one, I keep remembering scenes from this book and laughing.
    It starts feeling predictable in a few places, but that is just the author lulling you along so you don't see the wild left turn he takes until the last instant. Owen has to save the world, again, but along the way he reconnects with family and makes a few new friends. Existing characters are given more substance, and I like them even more than I did in book one.
    The narrator is, again, solid and consistent. His voice matches what I think big, tough, gruff Owen should sound like, but he doesn't sound silly when portraying females.
    Don't want to wait for book 4, but I'm trying to pace myself a little, since 5 won't be out for a while. At least there is the Grimnoir series! Looking forward to that, too.
