Overview

ORIGINAL PAPERBACK.
Sequel to the Hit Novel, Monster Hunter International. Owen Pitt Never Met a Gun He Didn’t Like, or a Monster He Couldn’t Shoot. But Now, the Monsters are Shooting Back . . .

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 . . .

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
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.

    Owen Zastava Pitt – accountant, chosen one, and world-savi

    Owen Zastava Pitt – accountant, chosen one, and world-saving monster hunter – is back with the crew from Monster Hunter International to save the world one more time. This time from Correia’s version of Cthulhu-style monsters, or Old Ones, who are angry that a simple human caused them pain and want revenge.

    The story picks up shortly after the ending of Monster Hunters International, as Owen finishes up a standard government contracted chupacabra hunt in Mexico. Accompanied by former stripper Holly and former high school chemistry teacher Trip, these graduates from the Newbie Squad would happily follow Owen into the pit of hell with only a butter knife and glass of cold water.

    After the hunt is successful, a mysterious necromancer sent by the Old Ones shows up with his zombie army to take Owen into custody. Owen fends off this new adversary but in the process lands himself in a Mexican jail filled with bloodthirsty criminals and a pair of vampires. Eventually rescued by the federal agents of the Monster Control Bureau, things go from bad to worse when his rescuers use Owen and his family as bait. However, this is one gun-toting family the necromancer won’t be able to take down so easily.

    During the story we find about the worst day in MHI history, as well as some shocking information about the biggest thorns in MHI’s side, Agents Franks and Myers. The two Federal Agents that threatened to kill Owen in Monster Hunters International and now dangle him like a worm on a hook.

    As the necromancer closes in on Owen, the supernatural world explodes with zombie elephants, brain worms, Japanese ogres, gangland gnomes, and an Internet troll that is an actual troll! MHI responds with better guns, bigger explosions and lots of fast-paced action.

    Overall, this book doesn’t have the great consistency of Monster Hunters International, but it has higher peaks and lower valleys. At over 600 pages, there are a few places where the book’s pacing drags and a few times things go from comedic to just plain silly. The ending, though, is like stuffing a lit stick of dynamite into a pumpkin filled with chocolate pudding. You won’t look away and the payoff is totally worth it!

    If you are a fan of urban fantasy or of Monster Hunters International, go get a bag of popcorn and this book and prepare for a fun roller coaster ride full of guns and monsters.

    An outstanding read!

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It had the right mixture of action vs. detail that a really good yarn needs to have in order to get and keep your interest. Where else would you get to experience the raging debate as to whether or not an accountant CAN defeat true evil? I recommend this book for any and all who enjoy reading for fun. It will deliver.

    GREAT book!! So far this series has been great! You have action

    GREAT book!!
    So far this series has been great! You have action, laughs & the supernatural. It can't get better. If you think you have in-law problems, you haven't met Owen's!

    Spoiler: This series has been great, & I love that Owen is a badass, but it is getting a little over the top. I really enjoyed that he was an average guy that kicked supernatural butt, I am not so thrilled that he is becomimg a "super" hero. While I appreciate the technical information about the guns, I think Mr. Correia gets too detailed for me.

    I Also Recommend:

    Not as good as the first

    Book 1 was okay, very detailed when it came to weapons that he used, but he seemed to be reaching when it came to the plot. Book 2 was worse, I got about halfway through and had to stop. Every line was supposed to be a witty remark or comeback that was meant to bring humor, but it didn't, it got old really fast. I think I'll pass if it gets to book 3.
