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)

    Story
    "A well done sequel to an already great book."
    Would you listen to Monster Hunter Vendetta again? Why?

    Yes, and I have a few times. The M.H.I. series is one of my primary 'filler' series between new titles. M.H.I. is a fun series and still enjoyable after a few listens. I especially like re-listening to it with new people around to try and get them hooked on it.


    What did you like best about this story?

    As with the first book in the series, M.H.I. Vendetta is a fast paced urban fantasy full of action, humor, a bit of drama, and even a bit of romance. But, my personal favorite thing about it has to be Mr. Correia's take on what could be considered traditional fantasy creatures in a rather hilarious fashion.


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

    I really enjoy Mr. Wyman's portrayal of certain characters. Without spoilers, I especially found his portrayal of a certain spy hired later in the book and M.H.I's newest I.T. hire far funnier than I would have pictured otherwise.


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

    As with the first book, I did want to listen to it in one sitting. But, I had to sleep.


    Any additional comments?

    M.H.I. Vendetta is another great read from Larry Correia. If you enjoyed the first installment, you will definitely enjoy this sequel.

    Story
    "Never under-appreciate, a complete Jackass !"
    Would you listen to Monster Hunter Vendetta again? Why?

    Probaly, but, then I might just ask,

    1-Can you eat a really good bag of popcorn, with too much salt on it ?

    2-Can you cry for the hero and then hope he dies a horrible death in the same sentence ?

    3-Can you believe in monsters and then believe, it gives the average human, the right to lash out violently, at anyone, at anytime, about anything ?


    If, your anwser to these questions is yes. Then pamper yourself, cause, you've come home.


    If, your anwser to these questions, are no. Then applaud yourself for being much smarter than the rest of us; as well as probaly a working heart.


    Righteous thinking or not, if'n we ever treated loved ones or anyone, like these folks working at MHI, then I think the monsters inside all of us, would surely win in the end anyways.
    Still, I was never was that bright.......


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The English monster man, Hood. His reasoning though, scewed. Seem to have, only the desire to help out mankind. Blantant murder, by his human counterparts, not so much. Do you always need a good excuse to kill indiscrimately ?


    What about Oliver Wyman’s performance did you like?

    Excellent, for a man, with the task, to picking a fight with anyone at anytime about anything, and he was a complete righteous angered ars'e about all of it, good job (I think?)


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

    Humans without heart, and Monsters too!


    Any additional comments?

    All set aside. If'n you've got the the EL-Macho bug in you, you'll probaly like. If'n not avoid.

    "Non-stop fun and action"
    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.

    "Most fun I have had in ages"

    I loved all the action and characters of both books in the series, I listened everyday as I drove to and from work as the action got more intense I found myself driving faster! I will most likely be listening to both again! I cannot wait for the next book in this series. I also really enjoyed the narrator he's great.

    "Inflated Ratings"
    Any additional comments?

    This book was a disappointment for me. The reviews and ratings made it seem like an amazing squeal to the OK first MHI. It wasn't! It just dragged. And i gotta say, the author has the least creative names, Lord Machado, and The Condition? really? I cringed every time i heard that. Sounded just so silly and childish.
    I think the narration is what kept me from just giving up. The narrator is very good, although i found his voice acting for Owen just over the top. Too loud, and too much. but the rest were quite fantastic!

    "not up to the author's usual quality"

    The main character in the book, Owen Pitt acted like a petulant child. It is hard to like a book when the main hero is a jerk. He doesn't have to like them, but he should at least respect someone who saves his life repeatedly. Besides that, Pitt was a bumbling idiot. First books by Larry Correia that I didn't like. I did like the first book in the series but it will be a long time, if ever before I get another Monster Hunter book.

    Story
    "In which our hero is an irredeemable moron."

    I loved the first book and pretty much hate everything about this one. Owen is undergoing the worst sort of character transformation. He's now only ever a whining little punk, a braindead thug, or a meaningless plot device. There are stains on my couch with more actual personality.

    The book is painfully predictable. I was bored to tears with all the over done foreshadowing of predictable tropes and the "surprises" that did come only highlight that the "genius" Owen Pitt is now a slab of meat with a name tag who ought to have trouble pronouncing his own name.

    The entire world literally revolves around Owen, complete with the sun shining out of his arse and I can only imagine it gets worse from here. Characters caught in his orbit are either two dimensional or boring tropes. This kind of writing belongs in a cancelled sitcom.

    Would not recommend to anyone. This is the sort of bad that would make me go out of my way to insult the writer in public.

    Oliver Wyman's narration is still delightful. It's only a shame he didn't quit this gig when he saw the dross he was going to be forced to record.

    "All Characters seem 14 years old"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Eh...


    Has Monster Hunter Vendetta turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No. It's not all that bad. It's a pulpy action book. It just could have been set in a highschool based on the trite interactions and relationships of the characters.


    What aspect of Oliver Wyman’s performance would you have changed?

    Nothing. Oliver did fine.


    Could you see Monster Hunter Vendetta being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    No
