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)

    "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.

    "Awesome"

    All 3 Monster Hunter books were Awsome and I cant wait for the 4th thru.... I will be purchasing all of them as I can't imagine the story line ending or flattening out. High action, great characters and great story from the "get go" to "get done".

    "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!

    Story
    "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!!

    "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.

    "Good plot but I dislike the format"
    What disappointed you about Monster Hunter Vendetta?

    The writing leaves quite a bit to be desired in my opinion. It's told from the main characters point of view and is full of redundant comments and uninteresting observations. I like the plot so I struggled to rate this so low but it was like pulling teeth to get myself to finish it due to the writing.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Larry Correia again?

    Probably not


    Which character – as performed by Oliver Wyman – was your favorite?

    I wasn't big on any of them.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Impatience
