Take a look at Monster Hunters

My husband turned me on to the first Monster Hunter International (MHI) books last year . . . written by a brand spanking new author, Larry Correia. He self published his first book after being rejected by several publishing houses as being un-sellable. The book gained popularity so unbelievably fast that it was picked up by a major publisher and it is currently in its fourth printing.

Larry Correia creates a world filled with believable characters and a reality chucked full of monsters and creatures we all know, love and fear. He makes you cringe, he makes you laugh and he leaves you wanting more.

If you’re on the look out for a fun and exciting book . . . both of the of books in the MHI series will most definitely fit that bill!

Monster Hunter International
Five days after Owen Zastava Pitt pushed his insufferable boss out of a fourteenth 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. “

The first seven chapters are posted for free at Baen's Webscriptions

Larry’s second book, Monster Hunter – Vendetta, hit the market in September 2010 to an anxious, frothing-at-the-mouth-for-more audience. Within weeks hit the New York Times Best Seller List . . . unbelievable but completely deserved. The book is also in the top 10 best fantasy books and on the bestseller list. He hit the mark again with a worthy sequal to Monster Hunter International. I could not put this book down! It’s exciting, creepy and laugh-out-loud funny. As good or better than the first. OMG! AWESOMENESS!

Monster Hunter - Vendetta

Accountant turned professional monster hunter, Owen Zastava Pitt, managed to stop the nefarious Old One’s invasion plans last year, but as a result made an enemy out of one of the most powerful beings in the universe. Now an evil death cult known as the Church of the Temporary Mortal Condition wants to capture Owen in order to gain the favor of the great Old Ones.”
