Publisher's Summary
Accountant turned professional monster hunter Owen Zastava Pitt managed to stop the nefarious Old Ones' 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. The Condition is led by a fanatical necromancer known as the Shadow Man. The government wants to capture the Shadow Man and has assigned the enigmatic Agent Franks to be Owen's full-time bodyguard, which is a polite way of saying that Owen is monster bait.

With supernatural assassins targeting his family, a spy in their midst, and horrific beasties lurking around every corner, Owen and the staff of Monster Hunter International don't need to go hunting, because this time the monsters are hunting them. Fortunately, this bait is armed and very dangerous.

Monster Hunter Owen and his team have gone to a hotel after a minor assignment in Mexico. While relaxing Owen is visited by a man who is a monster in the dark and weakened by the light. Owen manages to escape by jumping out the window only to be confronted by an army of zombies swarming the resort. Owen is able to eliminate the threat, with some late help from his team, only to be arrested for mass murder.

Agents Myers and Franks of the government Monster Bureau show up to rescue Owen. They explain that the man after Owen is a fanatical necromancer known as the Shadow Man. He leads an evil cult, known as the Condition, who are trying to capture Owen and deliver him to Owen’s enemies, the Old Ones. So Agent Franks is appointed as Owen’s bodyguard.

Owen is confined to the grounds of Monster Hunter International as they try to locate the Condition. Harbinger, head of the Hunters, believes that the grounds are warded from monsters and completely secure. But nothing is secure if traitors infiltrate MHI.

Thanks to a shard that Vampire Suzanne forced on Owen, he has developed the capability to mind read flash backs when he touches people. Through flashbacks the reader/listener learns more of the history of several characters and MHI. We also meet Owen’s family as the Shadow Man goes after them to draw out Owen.

I enjoy the great action and fun tension created by the rivalries. There are losses that bring sadness and victories that bring joy. I am anxious to listen to more.

Audio Notes: Oliver Wyman does a wonderful job of portraying the voices, emotions and excitement. He makes this a fun, entertaining series to listen to.

This book is from my own Audible Library.
