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

    "More of Everything that Made MHI Great"

    How do you follow up defeating an entity of unspeakable evil and unimaginable power that's been waiting five centuries to end the world? You take on his boss.

    This sequel hits the ground running right where Monster Hunter International left off. The threat introduced in that book's epilogue makes itself immediately felt with a really powerful adversary going right at our heroes. And after a humorous detour through the Mexican criminal justice system, we're off to watch MHI do what they're best at, figuring out the bad guys game and beating them at it just in the nick of time. This is accomplished through the inventive use of high explosives, high-velocity silver bullets and clever or not so clever insults. This time around, Correia ups the scale, literally, on the action sequences, bringing about what has to be one of my favorite confrontations with a big bad in recent memory, involving an elephant.

    Along the way, several characters will have their backgrounds fleshed out, including MHI's two favorite agents from the Monster Control Bureau, and MHI's history is filled in with a few insidious twists and turns.

    The narration continues to impress with Oliver Wyman delivering Pitt's amiable tough guy wit in addition to as broad a collection of nationalities and supernatural creatures as you could ask for.

    If you enjoyed Monster Hunter International, just look forward to more of that in every way.

    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.

    "Correia is being consistent"

    Correia is a little weak on the female characters but I think that may be part of his charm. He may identifiy so much with Owen, or Owen with him, that he has a hard time putting the mechanics of the male/female romantic relationship into words.

    I don't think it matters much as the story moves along at such a heady clip that there may not be time for such fripperies, anyway.

    I don't know much about guns (though I have one and there are more around) other than the point and shoot aspect which seems to me the critical bit but I still love the professional talk about the weapons buried in the books. My husband does understand all the nomenclature did understand and probably walked away with an even better appreciation. I was gratified that he is laughing at all the points I did.

    Corriea has the gift of a very pleasant writing voice, sort of invites you to keep listening, invites you to sympathize with the characters - and, invariably, I do.

    "Another excellent Monster Hunter adventure!"

    Despite the somewhat obnoxious constant descriptions of automatic weapons, this was another thrilling Monster Hunter adventure. I couldn't put it down!

    "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.

    "More Of The Same (And That's A Good Thing)"

    This is the second story in the series. Pick up 'Monster Hunter International' first. For those who have read MHI, MHV is a lot more of the same, with some new critters and twists. The writing is a bit sloppier in this book, which is a disappointment, but both Correia and narrator Oliver Wyman make up for it with their enthusiasm.
    It's obvious that Correia has a good time writing these books, and it shows.

    "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!!
