Accountant turned professional monster hunter, Owen Zastava Pitt, managed to stop the nefarious Old One's 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... At the publisher's request, this title is sold without DRM (Digital Rights Management).

Problem: a psycho cultist necromancer and his horde of zombies are trying to bring about the end of the world. Solution: a badass boy lets loose with his badass toys. Owen Zastava Pitt, a member in good standing of Monster Hunter International, has pissed off the Overlord of the Old Ones enough to get his name on a supernatural hit list. Owen tries to ferret out links between MHI and the deranged necromancer on his trail while enlisting various dubious allies, protecting his family, and dodging the Feds. 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. \n
Monster Hunter Vendetta.
A very satisfying genre romp. I am enjoying the series very much thus far.
