Monster Hunt International by Larry Correia - Fantasy Book Review

           The first battle begins in an almost comic way. Owen Pitt hates his boss and he finds himself staying late one night only to watch as his boss turns into a werewolf. Pitt is in for the battle of his life after that and the book just takes off. 

           As the book continues, Pitt finds out that monsters are real. So are vampires and Zombies. It's up to Pitt and Monster Hunt International to save the world from the Cursed One. 

          Along the way, the book has a tremendous amount of action with constant battles between Monster Hunt International and Zombies and Vampires. I have to say that it's unpredictable and the books is fast paced. 

          The author faced a huge challenge on this book as well since it’s over 700 pages.  Keeping up the pace for that many pages is tough but the author was good at bringing out some great characters as well that fought alongside Owen.  

          Pitt is also in love with a woman in the book but the chances of him winning her over seem impossible since she has another boyfriend but Pitt is determined to change that.  Correia is great at bringing this relationship out with a wide range of great characters that work well in between the battles with the Zombies and Vampires.  

         Pitt's character as a street fighter bartender seems to link up to his problems as he is anxious to pursue a relationship while resolving his own problems from the past. The characters are developed nicely and with plenty of action makes this a fun book to read.  

         I'm glad that I discovered this book and look forward to reading more books by Larry Correia. I wish I could give this book more than five stars.
