And now for something completely different...

"Monster Hunter International" is horror, sci-fi, fantasy, and right-wing gun show (yeah, is that a genre? Because after reading this book, I half-way want to buy a gun or three, myself).

It opens when our protagonist, Owen, is attacked by his boss, a newly minted werewolf, and kills him, with his bare hands. This catches the attention of the premier monster killing company in the country, Monster Hunter International (or MHI for short), and before Owen knows it, he's been recruited, finding himself killing vampires, zombies, wights, and worse, armed with more ordinance than anyone not in the US Army.

I was surprised how much I enjoyed the book, though it definitely falls into brain candy territory. I only carefully recommend it because it is violent at points and the characters do occasionally cuss.

That aside, it is a fun romp of a book and a very quick read.

UPDATE: I recommended the book to the guys over at Elitist Book Reviews and got a mention for it (http://elitistbookreviews.blogspot.co...). Check out the review, there.

Cami Your opening paragraph on your review sounds like this has male elements of the book Sunshine

Daniel (Attack of the Books!) Burton I'll check it out. You're the second friend who has read it that gave it at least four stars.
