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)

    I don’t have a lot of time for reading, but Audible allows me to listen to all the great books that I thought I would never get to read.

    "Very entertaining."

    I was very surprised that I liked this series.
    I started listening to Monster Hunter series after a recommendation from a friend. I was pleasantly surprise how entertaining this series is. Definitely worth the time and credits to listen to the full series, and I am looking forward to the next book.

    "An outstanding reader and a spectacular series"

    This is book 2 of a 3-book series. I read all three of these in print before getting the audio version, and while I liked them very well in print, they are even better in audio format. Reader Oliver Wyman nails a wide variety of voices and personalities for everything from subhuman monsters to crusty century-old werewolves and a combat accountant. He does a good job on women's voices, too.

    Monsters of all types are real, and outbreaks are quietly suppressed by the various government agencies for multiple nations as well as private contractors. Monster Hunters International is one of those private groups, recruiting constantly to keep up with demand for their services and to offset the inevitable losses of personnel.

    One of those recruits is Owen Zasava Pitt, self-described combat accountant. He survived a werewolf attack to be recruited by MHI, and he is the focus of books one and two. He's died several times and gained some psychic and quasi-magical powers in the process. Being a team-member for MHI is a lot more interesting than being a CPA.

    In this volume, Owen is the target of a cult that wants to capture him for presentation to the evil Old Ones, thus acquiring favor. The US government agency, Monster Control Bureau, wants the leader of the cult, The Shadow Man, and is using Owen as bait. All of MHI is under threat by the evil cult, and they'll do anything to get to Owen, including attacking his family.

    All the favorite characters from the first book are back, including Skippy and his tribe. I won't spoil them for you by trying to describe them, but they are stalwart warriors, and fortunately they're on MHI's side.

    MHI has a wide variety of weaponry, and Milo, their own "Q," is constantly inventing new gadgets. It's a good thing, particularly when you find yourself beset by zombie elephants.
    The substance of a quote from the book: "Just where do you get dead elephants?" asks Owen. "The Internet," replies The Shadow Man.

    In a further complication, Owen has been scratched by a human zombie, and is doomed to die. In an effort to save his family and all of his friends, he sacrifices himself, going willingly into the domain of the Old Ones to satisfy their demands. He marries his true love, Julie, in a quick ceremony conducted by one of Skippy's tribe, but he can't even kiss her goodbye for fear of transmitting the deadly zombie virus. Feeling feverish and shaky, he heads into the underworld, hoping that he can do some damage before he dies...again.

    Monster Hunter International and Monster Hunter Vendetta should be read as a single book. Monster Hunter Alpha is more of a stand-alone book in the Monster Hunter universe.

    "Finally broke down and bought it"

    Ok I have not read the first book this one was a BOGO and I was guilty of judging a book by it's cover. I made a mistake on that count. I actually enjoyed it. I mean for a paramilitary urban fantasy which I usually avoid, because I get tired of the gun love and weapon overload. This surprisingly didn't have that nor did it take itself to seriously. The main character wasn't some golden god and neither were his comrades. There were mistakes and there wasn't a super smart all knowing person in the group. I liked it. The hero has asthma the leading lady wears glasses and no one is a god like ninja superhero doing impossible kickass stuff that no one can beat. The vampire is evil and almost impossible to kill--- as they should be!!!! There is no romantic sparkles or life saving werewolf. The monsters want to eat you and the heros want to kill the monsters ----as it should be!!!! If you are looking for a love affair with a monster look elsewhere, but if you are looking for a story that throws a hard right hook you found your book...... To bad it takes more than a right hook to kill a Zombie.

    "Excellent continuation of a great series"

    Easy transition into the second book from MHI. The characters I fell in love with are still kicking some major monster ass and I get to live vicariously through them. Great job Larry and 2 thumbs up again to a wonderful read by Oliver Wyman! Excellent job of voicing characters so well that before they even say a word and they take that breath I know who's coming. (Earl Harbinger) loved it!

    "Lots of action"

    Mr. Correa writes great action scenes. I like that his hero isn't suave, but come on. Owen Z. Pitt has the emotional maturity of a 12 year old. Pitt is always spouting his mouth off an doing stupid and impulsive things. That's two stars down.

    On the other hand the narration is excellent. The monsters are creative and truly nasty. And Correa manages to keep the tension ratcheted way up. A better than average listen if your tastes include lots of guns and explosives. This isn't up to the quality of his Grimnoir Chronicles story "Hard Luck." Still, it's a fun listen.

    "Correia makes me laugh every time!!"

    I love this series!! The goofy references (chia pets, Pokey Mon, etc.) pull me out of myself every time and I laugh, chuckle, snort, chortle and then listen carefully for the next batch. This is far more than a running gag, but is instead a fully realized nearly-real world (except for those pesky zombies, vampires and, oh yeah, government agents!!) that feels both threatening and fun.

    This time the evil overlords are back with more menace, a possible mole inside MHI, and Agent Franks hanging out at the compound. Please let me know what it takes to be a monster hunter. I wanna play too!!!
