''Five days after Owen Zastava Pitt pushed his insufferable [[WarmUpBoss boss]] out of a fourteenth story window, he woke up in the hospital with a [[GoodScarsEvilScars scarred]] face, an unbelievable memory, and a job offer.''

''It turns out that monsters are real. [[AllMythsAreTrue All the things from myth]], legend, and [[BMovie B-movies]] are out there, waiting in the shadows. [[{{Masquerade}} Officially secret]], some of them are [[AlwaysChaoticEvil evil]], and some are just [[HorrorHunger hungry]]. On the other side are the people who kill monsters for a living. Monster Hunter International is the premier [[PrivateMilitaryContractors eradication]] company in the business.''

''And now Owen is their newest recruit. It’s actually a pretty sweet gig, except for one little problem. An ancient entity known as the [[BigBad Cursed One]] has returned to settle a centuries old vendetta. Should the Cursed One succeed, it means the end of the world, and MHI is the only thing standing in his way. With the [[RaceAgainstTheClock clock ticking]] towards Armageddon, Owen finds himself trapped between legions of [[OurZombiesAreDifferent undead minions]], [[ThoseTwoBadGuys belligerent federal agents]], a [[SpiritAdvisor cryptic ghost]] who has taken up residence inside his head, and the cursed family of the [[LoveTriangle woman he loves]].''

''Business is good…''

''Welcome to '''Monster Hunter International'''.''

* In '''Monster Hunter International''' an ordinary accountant, Owen Pitt, finds that the world is far more extraordinary than he first thought, when his boss turns into a werewolf and tries to kill Owen.
* '''Monster Hunter Vendetta''' focuses on the aftermath of the climax of the first book. Owen is now at the top of the [[EldritchAbomination Old Ones']] Most Wanted list, and they have promised great power to whoever can bring him to them. Now the [[ReligionOfEvil Sanctified Church of the Temporary Mortal Condition]], a necromantic cult with a mysterious leader, is hell-bent on catching him. The [[TheMenInBlack Monster Control Bureau]] has been tracking them for years, and thinks that using Owen as bait is just the break they need. But the Hunters have [[DitchTheBodyguards other]] [[StuffBlowingUp ideas]]...
* '''Monster Hunter Alpha''' picks up some time after Vendetta, with a change of protagonist. Earl Harbinger heads to a remote town in Michigan, to settle some old scores with one of his oldest foes, a vicious werewolf who served the KGB, and take him down for good. But there's another force waiting in the darkness, working to bring about a new breed of werewolves, and the only thing in their way are a handful of locals and a {{Determinator}} Earl Harbinger who won't die.
* '''Monster Hunter Legion''' brings MHI to Las Vegas, where they and other hunter teams from around the world, invited by a mysterious host for a hunter convention, run into a buried supernatural super weapon from the tail end of UsefulNotes/WorldWarTwo.
* '''Monster Hunter Nemesis''' takes the story inside the Monster Control Bureau, leaving most of the regular cast in the background. It covers Agent Franks's backstory and perspective, and fills in some of the cosmology.
* '''Monster Hunter Memoirs: Grunge''' is the first of three or more MHI novels written by Creator/JohnRingo, in the form of the memoirs of a hunter from TheEighties operating in [[TheBigEasy New Orleans]] and later Washington state.
