A good sequel to the first Monster Hunter International book. You meet Oscar's brother and find out more about his Father in this one. In some ways it is more of the same - kicking ass, lots of guns, the government is a paint - but it is a good continuation of the story.

I actually learned something about making a plot sequence poignant in the scene where Oscar goes to meet his destiny in this one. ( )

This installment in the series as pretty much more of the same. Monsters and guns galore. Frank was allowed a bigger part than just grunting in this one which was nice. Special Agent Dwayne Myers continues to be an asshole and annoyingly enough he continues even after it becomes known that the personal reasons for hating MHI is no longer exactly valid.

As with the previous book, a very enjoyable read, provided that you like monsters and plenty of guns of course.

Monsters, big guns, a traitor, the return of the elder gods from beyond space. Gratuitous violence and a world-ending plot. Excellent book....lots of ideas, interesting critters, and a powerful, sympathetic hero. Recommended second entry to the series. Can't wait to read the rest. ( )

Where as [b:Monster Hunter International|2570856|Monster Hunter International (MHI, #1)|Larry Correia|http://photo.goodreads.com/books/1266930931s/2570856.jpg|2581372] started off with a bang and then kind of just petered out, Vendetta starts with bang and then relentlessly pounds the reader with one battle after another until the very end, where there is a great big mother-phracking battle. Almost one long, ongoing battle.

And I loved it.

There was no gun porn, no contrived romance'y stuff, nothing that wasn't essential to the story. I felt like my backside was kicked the whole time. And Owen steps up and stops whining.

Agent Franks. Even when the reveal happened, I didn't get the play on words with his name until AFTER I was done the book. Very clever, in a simple punny way.

Overall, this was a much more enjoyable read than the first one. Looking forward to the final book now... ( )
