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)

    "And Z is at it again!"

    Correia did a good job with this one, and I'll keep reading these, but why the asides? This is a growing trend in books and it isn't a good one. Don't tell me a story within a story when a character could give a synopsis of past events and make it a smoother flow to the reading. Other than that, I truly enjoy this series and recommend it to anyone who enjoys supernatural without the teenage girl romance and glittery vamps!

    "B monster movie in book form"
    If you could sum up Monster Hunter Vendetta in three words, what would they be?

    Gratuitously violent/hilarious


    What did you like best about this story?

    It was surprisingly compelling for what amounts to a B monster movie in book form.

    "A big improvement over the first."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, and I already have. It's a fun and action paced series.


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

    There is a part near the middle of the book where a place is attacked in a all-out undead assault, it was really awesome. The sheer creativity of the author in coming up with creatures was great.


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

    I have only heard the first in this series, so I can't really compare.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, I ended up listening to it nearly all the time.

    "The Number One Reason Why I Liked This Book"

    1. It was better than the first one.

    It's rare that a sequel is better than the original. A lot of the reviews mentioned that they liked this book more.

    They're right. But why?

    The first book lays down a framework for the series. It also leaves you with more questions than answers.

    All of the major mysteries that left you wondering were answered by then end of this audiobok.

    tremendous writing. powerful reading. you won't regret this -- especially if you liked the first book

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

    This is smooth continuation from the first book. Exciting, good story, lots of detail.


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

    His performance continues to be spot-on. Easy to tell the characters apart, nuances are what make the story.


    Any additional comments?

    Looking forward to hearing the next one in the series.

    Story
    "Another Great Book by Correia"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Monster Hunter Vendetta to be better than the print version?

    I really enjoy print books, but good audio-book performers can bring a great book to life. This was a wonderful sequel to MHI 1. The story was good, plenty of laughs, worth the time and money.


    What about Oliver Wyman’s performance did you like?

    Wyman did another outstanding job with his performance here. Some performers take away from the story, Wyman adds to it.


    Any additional comments?

    Great book to listen to.

    "Fantastic story!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, this was a fantastic story. Great action and character interaction. It even made me laugh outloud a few times. It was a real pleasure.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Plot & execution


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narrator is terribly slow. I actually listened to both books on 2x speed. He was quite enjoyable then. I don't think I could have listened to the books on 1x speed. That would have been a shame. I recommend these books to anyone who has the ability to speed up their player.

    "I enjoy the books BUT!!!"
    Any additional comments?

    I enjoy the Monster hunter books. But be Warned -Apparently The Author is some kind of right wing nut Job. He portrays The Feds(US Government) as Jack Booted Nazi Storm trooper who are Stupid/Corrupt and will do anything up to and including torture of Innocent and the Murder of Innocent people to keep the secret. If this just a minor part of the plot it would be one thing. But it is so prevalent in his writing even as a fictitious/fantasy /paranormal novel it is kind of disturbing.

    "Just couldn't take any more"

    Owen Zastava Pitt must go down as one of the stupidest characters ever written, and he knows it. How many times does he say "This is stupid and I shouldn't be doing it." yet he continues to barrel in not learning anything from his past. And Larry Correia must think that the longer, and more drawn out, the major action sequences the better because they go on forever. I got through the first book and gave it first book-itis syndrome but decided to try the second. I couldn't finish and that's hard because all I'm doing is sitting in my car listening. Owen is just a lumbering ox who gets very lucky but is still an extremely irritating character to try and understand. Give the man some smarts, perform some judicious editing to the obscenely long action sequences and apply even a little bit of logic and/or common sense and I might have been able to finish. But no such luck so I can only say I hope the Old Ones eat Owen Zastava Pitt.
