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)

    What made the experience of listening to Monster Hunter Vendetta the most enjoyable?

    I couldn't wait to get into this book after I finished listening to Monster Hunters International. Larry truly has brought this new world alive with his great imagination. The characters were great and I loved the twists of your conventional fantasy figures. Listening to Oliver was incredible, he really brought the characters alive. His ability to give each their own distinctive voice brought everything alive. Way to go Larry and Oliver.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    This is hard to say as there are some many that I really liked from Skippy to G-Gnome and all the hunters in between. I would have to say G-Gnome though he wasn't a hugh part he certainly made me laugh.


    What about Oliver Wyman’s performance did you like?

    His great portrayal of each character. His voice talent gave each their own personality.


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

    If it wasn't for the pesky need to sleep and work I would have easily listened to this is one sitting.

    "Great story, dumb protagonist."
    What made the experience of listening to Monster Hunter Vendetta the most enjoyable?

    Action, violence and the narrator.


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

    Gangsta gnomes were pretty hilarious. Franks reveal was one of the few genuine surprises I didn't see coming a mile away.


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

    He's a great narrator.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The ork village events after the big mhi battle was particularly heart-wrenching. There were many others


    Any additional comments?

    Main character is kind of an idiot. I find it hard to root for a character who is basically every bad one liner from every mid 80's action flick. I really wish he was just a little smarter. The rest of the cast is excellent. Overall a great audio book. The narrator is a real find.

    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.
