A friend recommended this series to me. Halfway through the second book I told my buddy man thank you. I loved this series and cant wait to see where this goes. Urban fantasy and vampires and magic and all has been done before but the world that Mr Corwin has created is well developed and thought out, I like the different approach, what with the main character starting out as a nerdy gamer, then comeing into his power but keeping the nerdy smartass comments and train of thought. This series is a good one and I highly recommend you give it a try.

Count Cassius Mass was the greatest star pilot of the Crius Archduchy. He fought fiercely for his cause, only to watch his nation fall to the Commonwealth. It was only after that he realized the side he'd been fighting for was the wrong one. Now a semi-functional navigator on an interstellar freight hauler, he tries to hide who he was and escape his past. Unfortunately, some things refuse to stay buried and he ends up conscripted by the very people who destroyed his homeland.

This book is a excellent debut into the world of sci-fi for C.T, Phipps and Michael Suttkus. reading it i was reminded of semi alcoholic Deadpool in space mixed with a spy novel. The main character is surrounded by spy's and no ones telling him the truth and he has to figure it all out before it all blows up in his face. only he never quite seems to make it. Well done.

Peter Stone is a poor, black vampire who is wondering where his nightclub, mansion, and sports car is. Instead, he is working a minimum wage job during the night shift, as being a vampire isn't all that impressive in a world where they've come out to mortals. Exiled from the rich and powerful undead in New Detroit, he is forced to go back when someone dumps a newly-transformed vampire in the bathroom of his gas station's store.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The main character being a black guy whos a war vet coming back and getting turned into a vamp is a cool notion. Then him having to find his way in the world of new Detroit, which was a nicely fleshed out world in the book. I was a bit concerned with how the vamps could be portrayed in this book, but Phipps actually straddles the line between serious predator and comic smartass. I loved the main characters attitude, there were times where listening I thought I would have said a smartass response only to hear the narrator say the line or close enough. I don't want to do any spoilers but the ending is definitely a case of out the frying pan, into the fire. I cant wait to see where the story goes next.

This book gave me the further character development I was looking for.
Jane Doe keeps changing as a character and growing up, dealing with new powers and social situations. I wanna see more about her teacher Kim as in some more backstory and its going to be interesting to see where Alex goes from here considering the new angle at the end of the book.
Look I don't want to give to many spoilers here, but this book continues to delight me as a series and I recommend it to urban fantasy fans as well as detective story fans who might not be scared of a detective story with a supernatural angle.
Jim Butcher might want to watch out this series has the potential to rival his Harry Dresden series.

This book surprised in in that I was expecting a funny, snarky detective story. and it was. The surprising part was the development of the world it was set in. The author really took some time to think out the world and the social aspects to the different types of shifters in the book. The way business and government would react to this type of new world was thought out also.
I was originally attracted to this book because it was compared to the Dresden Files. There are similarities however I think the potential for a in depth series and character development is just as good if not better then Jim Butchers early work in the beginning of the Dresden files.
I cant wait to see where C.T. Phipps and Michael Suttkus go from here. Needless to say if you are a fan of urban fantasy and detective stories this would be a book I would definitely recommend to you.

C.T. Phipps puts a interesting spin on the assassin for hire theme story here. kind of a Jason Borne no memory beginning mixed with a future tech spin. I was very well written and kept the story moving, giving enough details to keep the world fleshed out without loosing one in small details and bogging down the story. I cant wait to hear the rest of the series.

Would you consider the audio edition of The Rules of Supervillainy to be better than the print version?

I just wanted something funny to listen to. What I got was a series that's more then I counted on. Its got depths and while its fun as well as funny and entertaining, I thoroughly enjoyed the character development and plot lines in the series.

What other book might you compare The Rules of Supervillainy to and why?

I haven't read anything quite like it, very original.

Have you listened to any of Jeffrey Kafer’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

nope

If you could rename The Rules of Supervillainy, what would you call it?

How to be a anti-villain.

Any additional comments?

Loved it

definitely

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Emily Beresford?

the narrator was fine

What character would you cut from Death Becomes Her?

all of them

Any additional comments?

This was just poorly though out and unoriginal.
