Publisher's Summary

From the Best-Selling Author of the Supervillainy Saga

Peter Stone is a poor black vampire who has found undeath isn't all it was promised to be. There's no vast riches, innate cool, or super-sex appeal. No, instead, there's working the graveyard shift at a gas station alongside the highway to Detroit. Oh, and the blood thing sucks, too. 

Working a second job as the sheriff of the undead, Peter is asked to serve as bodyguard to a famous vampire romance novelist visiting the city. He doesn't go 24 hours before she's dead and he's the primary suspect. There's also evidence it was one of the most powerful vampires in the world.

Some days just hit you like a stake through the heart.

Set in the same world as the Bright Falls Mysteries.

Love this series

I really enjoyed this book and the previous one. The author did a fantastic job and kept it kind of light. The narrator was amazing and I can’t wait for the next in the series to come out. Don’t take so long next time Phipps…we want the next book!

Dayum, I didn't see THAT coming.

Once, again this series moves away from the traditional vampire story. I love the way the author details his views of vampire politics. This is a fresh change.

Listen straight through in two days

I really liked it. It reminded me a lot of sookie stackhouse if she was a black guy , vampire and in Detroit. Lol as in his personality and humor. Would definitely be interested in getting the next in series. Hard to find vampire stories that are truly are entertaining and hold my interest as most are just erotic crap with no real plot. So definitely recommend this one if you like the charlaine Harris books. I was given this audio in exchange for honest and fair review.

not as good as the last one, but still good

Phipps has always had a writing style that I have enjoyed. Lots of fun sci fi quotes and pop references, and just an entertaining way of telling stories that doesn't take itself to serious. This one was less slap stick and I would say even better than his other stuff. If you have enjoyed anything Phipps has done so far, You will probably love this.

Peter rises up...

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!

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!

Gods and Dwarves

If you're wondering the comparison take a listen to Book 2. Stone once again having more responsibility and zero raise is back in an action packed sequel. The puns are fantastic, with nerdy quotes intact. The narrator brings even Hell to life and color. Gotta listen to find out how. No dissapointment here a total laugh a minute while being awesome.

4.5 stars - Peter Stone is a lot of fun

Back in the world of Peter Stone, a poor black vampire who still works at a convenience store. He is also the belladix, aka vampire sheriff, of New Detroit. However, the second job doesn’t come with a salary, hence why he has to keep the first job.

Thoth, Peter’s creator and the second most powerful vampire in New Detroit and husband to the voivode, vampire regional leader, Ashura (though, marriage is a pretty loose thing with vampires) has offered Peter a really high paying job of playing bodyguard to fairly young vampire and novelist, Rebecca Plum (think Stephenie Meyer or Anne Rice). The problem is that Rebecca Plum might write best selling novels, but she’s also really bad vampire in that she enjoys killing humans, which doesn’t sit well with Peter.

Things aren’t as easy as they should be, of course. Things go arigh and everyone ends in a battle that will change everything. I won’t go into more detail on that.

This is a fun story in a Phipps style of a lot of great humor and snide comments from the characters. Oh, and the large number of pop culture references that are featured in every C.T. Phipps story. The Straight Outta Fangton series is also set in the same world as Jane Doe the weredeer in the Bright Falls Mysteries series, though she lives in a different part of Michigan. There are some character crossover, but you can read either series without having read the other.

I have to say I love David, Peter’s best friend. He is a favorite character of mine. He has some of the best jokes in the story. I can’t say too much about David without spoiling things in Straight Out of Fangton or 100 Miles and Vampin’, but just know that David is a great character.

Narration
Cary Hite is back as the narrator for this series. I’ve really enjoyed his narration of this series. I think I like the voice of Thoth the best. Not only is Thoth a very powerful vampire, but he is also a Haitian voodoo priest and I love the accent that he uses.I can’t imagine anyone else as the voice of Peter and the gang.

Very entertaining

Loved the characters, the place of the story, the many, many references and a whole bunch of distractions that were added to the story. Very entertaining, and an enjoyable vampire / paranormal based world and story to listen to.

Even better than the first

Same great story and characters. Narrator really found his groove and his cadence improved significantly. I hope CT continues the series. Nearly as enjoyable as his supervillainy series.

This time the stakes are higher. (sorry/not sorry)

Please excuse the pun, but it reflects the author's love of them, I think. This is the sequel to my favourite Vampire novel since the Vampire Lestat. Like book one, it's at once as dark as anything by Anne Rice and yet maintains a near constant pitch of humour. The setting is part of Phipps's "United States of Monsters" world which is a fascinating and original idea. In essence, vampires and other supernaturals have been "revealed" and are a *mostly* accepted part of society. The MC of this novel, like the first, is a vampire called Peter Stone. He is many things. Incredibly powerful vampire 'sheriff' of Detroit, convenience store worker, veteran with a conscience, total geek, and at heart a good man stuck being an evil monster and doing morally questionable things to save the world. All while wisecracking at a hundred miles an hour and making enough pop culture references it could make your head spin. For me, that all works fantastically well and this was a listen that kept me both gripped and chuckling throughout.


Final word comes down to the narration. Cary Hite is brilliant and is perfectly cast as the voice of Peter but also his vampire creator Thoth, his friend (now zombie) David, and the other characters. He carries off every instance of Peter's biting wit (I think this pun thing is contagious...) with aplomb.
