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

    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.

    "Just silly, if you're over 10 yrs old don't bother"

    I can't believe I made it over an hour into this one before hanging it up. Doesn't have anything to do with imagination, it was just silly and predictable nonsense.

    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.

    Story
    "Second Curse, Same as the First"

    This book was just like its predecessor. On the plus side you get an adventure loaded with action, monsters, and guns (and guns). If you're a sucker for action (and guns), Vendetta might have enough to hold your interest.

    Unfortunately, the story is almost a repeat of the first book. I feel like I could have just read Monster Hunter International twice.

    There was really no deepening of the very superficial characters. His use of stereotypes makes me wonder whether he's ever really met another human. His main character is even less human than the other "humans" in the book. Owen Pitt thinks in taglines and catchphrases. He is a narcissist who knows even better than the reader that the story is about him. He feels guilt for getting his friends into trouble because the bad guys are after him, but he doesn't act on this guilt other than to just "feel" it momentarily every time someone off to his left or right gets killed. The only other emotion he has room for in his ammo pouch is anger and all its synonyms. I forgave this after the first book, but by the end of the sequel, it needs some character development.

    Correia started his series with a "world in the balance" climax so he had nowhere to go except to give us another similar ending. I can't speak for the rest of the series, but I feel a lot of similarities in narrative and main character to Goodkind's, "Wizard's First Rule" series. Ruggedly independent man with powers no one can explain faces unavoidable, world-ending conundrum that he defeats with the timely assistance of a Deus ex Machina all with libertarian undertones. With Goodkind it got old slowly (his characters had personalities), not so with Correia. I think I am done after this.

    The reader, Wyman, stepped up his game in this edition. He went a little bolder with some of the characterizations to good effect. I am not blown away, but I am well satisfied.

    "Very dissapointed"

    Don't know why i am so irritated by this book, but i just cant stand the main character. It seems the author just loves to make his heroes the biggest, baddest people that like to yell and make smart ass remarks. While i really enjoyed the first book, the novelty has wore off and it seems that for lack of story we get just a series of insults and smart remarks trying to show how clever the characters can be. Don't think i will be finishing this series.

    Sci-fi, detective, cozy. Only give 5s to those books I think stand above the rest. 4 is a good solid book. 3 is average, nothing special.

    "OK"

    I liked the first book a lot. This one just didn't hold my attention. I think maybe just a bit too strange.

    Story
    "Bored narrator trying to imitate Robert Stack."
    Would you try another book from Larry Correia and/or Oliver Wyman?

    No


    Would you ever listen to anything by Larry Correia again?

    No


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narrator sounded like he was trying to imitate Robert Stack from The Untouchables, only more smarmy and bored, even during the action sequences. Which I couldn't understand, as he was fine when providing character voices--consistent, different from each other, and emotional. I quit listening about 2.5 hours into the book when I realized I didn't like the main character enough to put up with the narrator any more.


    What character would you cut from Monster Hunter Vendetta?

    The central character. All the characters seemed to be walking cacti, growling and chest bumping at each other (women included).

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I really loved the action and story of this book. The narrator is great. You really feel like you know Owen Pitt.

    Owen Pitt, he is just a down to earth guy. I also found myself liking Franks in this book.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Definetly laugh


    Any additional comments?

    Can't wait to read the next book.
