Monster Hunter International

Monster Hunter International
by Larry Correia

9 out of 10
Definitely not YA.  12-year-olds, turn around now.

Incredibly enjoyable.  Owen Zastava Pitt is attacked by his were-wolf boss at work and is introduced to the world of B-movie monsters that are secretly alive and well, unbeknownst to the general population.

There are werewolves, gargoyles, vampires, wights, and various other undead.  There are hot chicks with glasses, hot chicks with no souls, and everything in between.  And Owen?  Kicks butt.  I think that might be the actual translation of "Zastava".  Owen Butt-kicking Pitt.  Oh, and let's not forget the elves.

There's a little something for everyone.  On everyone's mind: does Owen get the girl?  You'll have to read it to find out.

This is a roaring action read, and you won't want to put it down.  The side characters are awesome and have their own well-developed personalities, too.  The reveal of Holly's story gave me nightmares, in a very cool and yet bone-chilling way.

Monster Hunter Vendetta is out now!
