From 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.

Note that John Ringo has also written a couple of MHI (Monster Hunters International) books with Larry Correia supervising. These are pretty good, too - worth reading, if you like MonsterSplatter. They fit well as side stories to the main series.
Well, thanks to Glenn Reynolds, I discovered Larry Correia. And thanks to Sarah Hoyt, I got to meet the guy. Last year, I read his first Monster Hunter book, Monster Hunter International in paperback. This evening, I finished this book, the second in the series, on kindle. And yea, it's all about a private organization, Monster Hunter International (MHI) that fights the menace of monsters with firearms.
So much for Beowulf and Heracles wrestling beasts with their bare hands. Or Perseus slicing off the head of a demoness whose looks really kill with the help of a female deity and skill with a sharp sword.
This book is even better than the first in the series. Or, maybe I'm just saying because I just finished it. The story is fresh in my mind. It was a delight to read. And it's got a fun little twist at the end. (Just remember Mr. Trash Bags.)
Since I read my kindle at the gym, this book helped me burn a few extra calories.
Not only does Correia have some great action-packed monster-killing scenes, he's got some really great quips too. They're half the fun of the book. So, if you're reading this in public, be prepared to laugh out loud (quite literally) and to have your neighbors on the cardio machines look up at the television monitors and wonder what Anderson Cooper said that was so funny.
There are very few breaks in the action of this book. From fighting chupacabras in the opening of book to fending off a zombie horde once those beasts are dispatched, Correia's hero Owen Zastava Pitt leaps from one monster battle to another, with little time to probe the life lessons he learns as he blasts the evil things to bits. Perhaps the most entertaining of the battles was when he prevented Bia and Cratos from kidnapping his brother at a rock concert -- and then had to face those oversized critters not just backstage, but also on the highway.
At the same time, Pitt had to submit (quite reluctantly) to federal protection, given that the crazed necromancer heading the Church of the Temporary Mortal Condition, a bizarre cult with numerous human acolytes (not to mention allied undead beasts) wishes to sacrifice Pitt to an Old One, a creature from another dimension whose plots our hero had foiled in Monster Hunter International.
On the way to finding -- and facing -- this necromancer, they seek assistance from cantankerous gnomes in rooting out a spy -- and try to gain some intelligence from a rubbery troll. And they encounter a few werewolves (not all evil), a zombie elephant beast and even a shoggoth.
Our hero even attempts to make alliance with a powerful vampire. This one may have been "evil incarnate," Pitt quips, "but the enemy of my enemy is my friend." One thing he will learn is that you should "never trust the undead."
The book is in short a lot of fun, an ideal read if you want to add some excitement to your relaxation or a few steps to your cardio workout.
And when you read this book, make sure to pay close attention to Gretchen's wedding blessing.
My original review on the book
Just finished! This book continues the story of OZP, the protagonist from the first book. Correia has found a formula that works well for him. A gripping story of monsters, guns, and what it takes to be a hero.
The story holds up even on a re-read. Sure I know whats coming, somewhat, as it has been about 5 years since the first read. But even so, the story and characters are compelling and as the series progresses Larry Correia becomes more polished as a writer.

And I bet You will too
Good suspense, character development and story.
Still plenty of gun porn and good humor.
