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.

DING, DING ROUND 2 OF A MONSTER BATTLE

After the first book, "Monster Hunter International", I knew I'd be in for a treat and was not disappointed. The prequel was really good, pity ratings only go to 5 a really great monster battle of a book.

Becoming my favourite author and series

I haven't been sucked into a book so strongly for a damn long time. Larry, you're officially one of my favourite authors, your writing, story telling and character development are ace, with blockbuster action, twists, and down right vivid wordplay I watch the events unfold in my head in such a way that I'm glued to my headphones and can't get enough. The other major factor for my not getting enough of the monster hunter series is down to Oliver wyman's delivery of the novel, clear speech and well delivered voice acting bring the world and characters to life with brilliant vibrancy down to Olivers delivery of Owen he is now etched into my mind as one of the most badass heros out there.
Thanks guys, these books are awesome! And are currently the major bulk of my audible library haha!

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.

Exciting story, well told, with a great villain

If you could sum up Monster Hunter Vendetta in three words, what would they be?

World's best villain.

What did you like best about this story?

The villain in this story is great. He's cunning and powerful and, most importantly, understandable. He's a fantastic example of a man driven to evil, rather than being evil for evil's sake. His motives are clear and his means are ruthless, he was a fantastic character.

Have you listened to any of Oliver Wyman???s other performances before? How does this one compare?

This one continues the excellent quality of the first Monster Hunter book, with Oliver bringing Owen to life.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Sometimes, the end justifies the means... but an automatic shotgun always means the end to something.

Any additional comments?

This is a great sequel to a fun first book. I look forward to the next book in the series.
