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)

    "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.

    Story
    "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.

    "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!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    "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.

    Story
    "Action, death, destruction"
    What did you like best about Monster Hunter Vendetta? What did you like least?

    The main characters were quite engaging and it was nice to meet more family members (this is book 2 after all) but every time a real problem occurred more improbable powers appeared and it just got silly.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Larry Correia again?

    2 books have been fun, mostly, but enough is enough.


    Any additional comments?

    This is such a boys annual for adults book. Lots of shooting, slashing, car crashes and a hero who is totally indestructible to the point where he survives what no human being before him has survived. Oh, and he is the only hope for the future of the human race. I usually don't have too much trouble suspending belief in fantasy novels but this tested me. However, if you love pure action and impossible heroes, you'll love this book.

    "Even better than the first book"

    Excellent addition to the first book. Story line carries on nicely from the first one.
    Several new monster types added and I can't say much more.
    I found this book a lot more comical than the first.
