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... ( )

Good character development, storyline, & plot. Z and the crew face off against evil forces once again. The government is shady. Frank's true nature is revealed. We also meet Z's family. ( )

I really wanted to give this 5 stars. It was so much fun to read! It reminds me in some weird way of a Stephanie-Plum-like novel for men. Maybe it was just that Agent Franks reminded me of Ranger. Sometimes I really wondered if he actually was, like he somehow got assigned to this case, and he told Stephanie he had been sent on a dangerous, prolonged mission and he wouldn't be back for a while. I can hear you thinking that it's just fiction, so that can't have happened, but my brain seems not to be aware of that detail when I read. Anyway, it was like a dessert buffet with one fun treat after another. Honestly, he is a great writer. Very good with characters. My only complaint, and hence the 4 stars, is too many climaxes. I got desensitized to them to the point that I wanted everyone to just die already. But I will definitely keep on reading! ( )
