Does what it says on the tin,
This review is from: Monster Hunter International (Mass Market Paperback)
Well, when you see the title of the book, you kind of know what you are getting. MHI is a heavily action based urban fantasy about a private organisation that hunt all the creatures of legend while having to keep their existence (and that of the `monsters') a secret. New recruit is Owen Pitt, an accountant, but an accountant that is built like a brick outhouse, who is a talented fighter and a top shooter (well, what were you honestly expecting?)
So we are not supposed to take this seriously and just go with the flow. It's actually quite a long story, unusual in an urban fantasy and, amongst the mowing down of vampires etc, does have a plot. The writing is not complex and the characters are not overly developed but it is still quite a fun ride. Author Larry Correia is a gun fanatic (owns a shop and enters competitions) and this is reflected as he does over do the gun stuff a bit, but there is still plenty here to enjoy if you want something mindlessly entertaining. If you want something deep and meaningful, this isn't the book for you.

I would really like to read a review which tried to make a case for this book being deep and meaningful. Now THAT would be a worthy bit of fiction.
Still, I loved it. Kept the old heart pumping for a little longer. The killer accountant concept just cracks me up. My accountant is named Henry. I should let him borrow this book. He would love it.
