    jlparent: Both have action/adventure and humor, same type of feel to them but storylines are fairly different. If you want a very similiar story, try Martinez' "Monster".

Owen Pitt hates his job, but the night his boss turns into a werewolf and attacks him, he's had enough. ( )

A flamboyant and entertaining book that moves along very quickly, with many action sequences. Characters are developed somewhat, but there are so many of them that they sometimes they fall by the wayside. The monsters that are fought are exceptionally deadly and vicious. There are also lots of "quotable phrases", at least there were many sections that were highlighted by other readers (I read a Kindle version with community highlighting).

I look forward to reading more from Correia. ( )

Well now, that was some fun fluff with some *really* interesting takes on a whole lot of stuff. Definitely high on my candyfloss enjoyment chart. ( )

Brainless fun is also fun sometimes. You just have to consciously ignore the gun-nutty anti-governmental babble. ( )
  snorrelo | Feb 22, 2021 |
Competently written but with way too much attitude and not enough characterization. Way, way, way immature. Give to your nerdy thirteen yeast old budding neck beard nephew as i think that's the audience it was written for. ( )

Book description
Five days after Owen Zastava Pitt pushed his insufferable boss out of a 14th story window, he woke up in the hospital with a scarred face, an unbelievable memory, and a job offer.

It turns out that monsters are real. All the things from myth, legend, and B-movies are out there, waiting in the shadows. Officially secret, some of them are evil, and some are just hungry. On the other side are the people who kill monsters for a living. Monster Hunter International is the premier eradication company in the business. And now Owen is their newest recruit.

It's actually a pretty sweet gig, except for one little problem. An ancient entity known as the Cursed One has returned to settle a centuries-old vendetta. Should the Cursed One succeed, it means the end of the world, and MHI is the only thing standing in his way.

With the clock ticking towards Armageddon, Owen finds himself trapped between legions of undead minions, belligerent federal agents, a cryptic ghost who has taken up residence inside his head, and the cursed family of the woman he loves. Business is good.... Welcome to Monster Hunter International.
