With New Orleans out of control, Chad Oliver Gardenier, one of Monster Hunter International’s premier hunters, has been dispatched from Seattle to reinforce the beleaguered members of MHI'S Hoodoo Squad in their fight against the darkness.

Chad had once taken a werewolf while wearing only jogging gear. With half a dozen or more loup garou appearing every full moon, mysterious shadow demons, houdoun necromancers, fifty-foot bipedal crocodiles showing up every couple of months and more vampires than a Goth concert, New Orleans in the '80s gives a whole new perspective to the term “Hell on Earth.” In fact, more monsters are popping up than crawfish at a fais do do! Chad may be able to collect enormous bounties for the monsters he kills. But there’s one catch: he has to stay alive to do it!

About Black Tide Rising series entry Under a Graveyard Sky by John Ringo:
“. . . the thinking reader’s zombie novel . . . Ringo fleshes out his theme with convincing details . . . the proceedings become oddly plausible.”—Publishers Weekly

“If you think the zombie apocalypse will never happen, if you’ve never been afraid of zombies, you may change your mind after reading Under a Graveyard Sky . . . Events build slowly in the book at the outset, but you can’t stop reading because it’s like watching a train wreck in slow motion: inexorable and horrible. And the zombie apocalypse in these pages is so fascinating that you can’t stop flipping pages to see what happens next.”—Bookhound

About Larry Correia and the Monster Hunter International series:

“[E]verything I like in fantasy: intense action scenes, evil in horrifying array, good struggling against the darkness, and most of all people—gorgeously flawed human beings faced with horrible moral choices that force them to question and change and grow.”—Jim Butcher

“[A] no-holds-barred all-out page turner that is part science fiction, part horror, and an absolute blast to read.”—

“If you love monsters and action, you’ll love this book. If you love guns, you’ll love this book. If you love fantasy, and especially horror fantasy, you’ll love this book.”—

“A gun person who likes science fiction—or, heck, anyone who likes science fiction—will enjoy [these books] . . . The plotting is excellent, and Correia makes you care about the characters . . . I read both books without putting them down except for work . . . so whaddaya waitin’ for? Go and buy some . . . for yourself and for stocking stuffers.”—Massad Ayoob

“This lighthearted, testosterone-soaked sequel to 2009's Monster Hunter International will delight fans of action horror with elaborate weaponry, hand-to-hand combat, disgusting monsters, and an endless stream of blood and body parts.”—Publishers Weekly on Monster Hunter Vendetta

    I enjoyed this a lot more than the first in the series, though it's still not as good as the main MHI cannon. I wish I could give it 3.5 stars instead of 3.The main improvement vs. the first MHI Memoi...

    I liked this one better than the first in the trilogy, "Grunge". I still don't like the main protagonist much. I just get the feeling I'm hearing John Ringo's voice being purposefully -- and needlessl...

    Ok, the MHI universe is so fun and interesting, that the Universe is 5 stars. The writing is mostly paint-by-numbers, and just 2 stars. Ringo just isn't very good. It's like he's studied writing reall...

    You know the story on this one - John Ringo allowed to play in Larry Correia's Monster Hunter universe. Now, Ringo can definitely write action as well as Correia (no mean feat). To be honest, however,...

    This installment of MHI:M didn't live up to it's predecessor or series as a whole. It very much felt like the middle act of a 3 act play, which if rumors are true this is a trilogy of stories followin...

    I liked parts of this story quite a bit. The ending has no resolution, turn the page and suddenly its over which definitely leaves the reader hanging. Although this may be hard to explain, I'll try. A...

    Another entertaining entry on this series. I'm assuming since Larry's name is on it, this is Canon. I worry that this supposed trilogy will end up being more than that. I don't know if the whole comin...

    Another interesting addition to the Monster Hunters International series by Larry Correia with this being the second one penned by John Ringo. I always enjoy a John Ringo tale and this is another comp...
