100 Miles and Vampin' (Straight Outta Fangton, Book 2) by C. T. Phipps and narrated by Cary Hite

If you're reading this, wolfman’s got nards! OK seriously though, if you're reading this, you've either made it through the first book and are wondering if the second is worth it, or you're checking out the series reviews wondering if you should venture into it. The answer for both is yes- 100 Miles and Vampin' (Straight Outta Fangton, Book 2) by C. T. Phipps and narrated by Cary Hite is great! I love Phipps works, particularly this series for many reasons, but the pop-culture references/jokes really pulls me in. Highly recommend this one. 

Where to purchase: 

What’s it about? Peter is back and this time new trouble has arisen in the form of a famous vampire author. This sets the stage for old and new characters and creates an entertaining listen with pop-culture refs galore, humor, action, and supes. I am a little saddened over a death, but I’ll leave it at that. There are deeper meanings/metaphors to Phipps writings if you so chose to take notice, and if not, that’s OK, just kick back and listen.

The narrator, Cary Hite, was great- he brings Peter to life.

“I can assure you there’s no crap in the bathroom,” I said, walking past the counter. “Off to do something secret and spooky.” (Cary I about died laughing when you voiced this- it was perfect!)

If I hadn’t been so pissed and terrified, I would have muttered something like, “Wolfman got nards.”

“The third story hallway was riddled with bullets and more than a few bodies as I’d decided to go full-on Matrix through the place.”

“I thought the Force required midi-chlorians.” “Please, never mention those again,” I said, shaking my head. “All I remember about those movies was Samuel L. Jackson kicking ass, Darth Maul, and the lava fight. Everything else is a nice little blur I blame on some good-hearted vampire erasing them.”

“Being a vampire has a lot of advantages,” I said, putting my hand on her shoulder tentatively. “Yeah, we’re cursed and all, but life is a curse. It’s short, ugly, messy, and it ends.”

Overall I recommend, highly. If you’re new to Phipps works, welcome to the club, you won’t be disappointed!
