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)

    "Better than book one"

    A solid follow up to book 1 that continues to build and move this series forward. Excellent story with some new and interesting characters. A lot of fun to listen too with another perfect performance by Oliver Wyman.

    "I will never look at GNOMES the same again"
    What did you love best about Monster Hunter Vendetta?

    I do not usually purchase Sci-Fi/Fantasy books (I am a myserty & thriller person) but I took a chance on this one and I was so happy I did. Action and comedy combined together so well. LIstening at work I found myself laughing out loud one minute and wincing at the violence the next. Loved it!!!


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

    Oliver Wymans timing and just the right amount of sarcasim at the right moment made it even better. Great job

    "Pulp action horror in a good way."

    If you do cliches, make them over the top and use them to your full advantage. That is what Larry Correia does, and in spades. Take what is stereotypical of the zombie/vampire genre and work it into a book that is full of action and despair, and let the audience enjoy it to its fullest. There was hardly anything new or refreshing to the story or the characters, but LC made it work and work well none the less. A very enjoyable book, I would recommend it to any fan of the pulp action and horror genre.

    "Wonderful series!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Monster Hunter Vendetta to be better than the print version?

    I bought this book based on the reviews and number of stars. I kept coming back to it over and over, month after month, but I just wasn't sure so I kept choosing other books. I wish I'd bought it ages ago because it was exciting, well-written and kept me listening long after I should have been asleep.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I enjoyed the unique story. With the market being flooded with urban fantasy, eveyone is writing werewolf and vampire books, and while many are great reads, this series took the theme in a completely different direction and I loved it!


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

    I've never heard an Oliver Wyman narration before, but he's wonderful and did a fantastic job.


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

    This book made me laugh hysterically, cry in outrage and cheer out loud!


    Any additional comments?

    I've now listened to the entire series available on Audible and hope there will be more.

    "can i give it 6 stars?"

    brilliant! totally entertaining. great story. builds neatly from the first volume, in fact is even better. narration is great (except for the British accent, Birmingham via London with a bit of Essex thrown in!). Otherwise a thoroughly enjoyable listen. eager for the next in the series.

    "Another Great Story"

    I usually expect sequels to be less impressive than the original. This is not the case with "Vendetta" which is as equally good as the original. Fun story if you like a novel that is full of action, humor and horror. The narration by Mr. Wyman is superb and I hope he continues as narrator as the Monster Hunter series continues. Highly recommended.

    "A new spin on beings of imagination and battle..."

    A refreshing new twist on vampires, elve's, and other mythical beings blended blended skillfully with with modern battle, mercenary companies, and secretive government agencies with loads of action, quirky characters and a decent storyline that kept me listening.....i purchase the second book in the series before this one ended.
    We all look for something different in a book or series, i have a feeling this one will be popular with many!!

    "GOING BACK TO THE ROOTS"

    The message was sent across space and time:
    To all minions of the Overlord. Find and utterly destroy
    the human Hunter known as Owen Zastava Pitt.

    Many questions are answered: How ? Why?

    How julie's mother was turned?
    How julie's father learned the way to open the portal?
    Why agent Franks so tough?
    What Agent Myers has against MHI?
    How Owen's father knows about supernatural?

    All of this questions will be answered and many more!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Any additional comments?

    no sophomore slump here! vendetta brings back all of your favorite monster hunters from mhi to face off against a mysterious necromancer even master vampire susan shaklefield is afraid of.

    owen, of course, keeps getting himself in trouble b/c of his big mouth. he's a mix of mike talbot (zombie fallout) and joe ledger. owen's a loveable, self-deprecating dolt that knows how to kick some serious a$$. although, him getting his a$$ kicked is still pretty regular.

    owen's journey as the prophesized one takes an interesting turn as his family is dragged into the fight. so what does the bulls eye on his forehead get him? franks as a babysitter. franks is a great character even though he works for the gov't's monster control board. franks' reveal is a great twist. yup, i was wrong.

    past events mentioned in the first book are brought to life as what has happened in the past affects what mhi is going through now. in particular, what really happened that night years ago when ray opened the portal during the big shacklefield party. vendetta answers a lot of questions left from mhi.

    larry correia does a great job of coming up with new types of monsters and villains. man sure does his research! another reviewer stated that correia's villains are like matryoshka dolls- there's always a bigger baddie behind the current baddie. i don't see it that way. i see it as competing powerful factions, each vying for their opportunity to destroy the world. NOTE: you may not understand this until the end of the book.

    speaking of the end, what a great ending. correia's battle scenes are epic and always have consequences. even though, i didn't enjoy vendetta as much as the first, the ending definitely made up for it. think lotr return of the king.
