Publisher's Summary

From the best-selling author of the Supervillainy Saga

It's been a rough year for Peter Stone.

Vampires are not meant to be quarantined, and most of the nation is under lockdown. It has been extra hard in the city of New Detroit, which depends on tourism not only for its economy but its blood supply. With his creator kidnapped, mother dead, and finding himself once more exiled to the fringes of their society, Peter's ready to call it quits. That's when he receives a mysterious message from a long-dead friend who tells him that his problems are just beginning.

A mysterious new player in town wants to recruit Peter to help form a supernatural alliance against the oppressive new voivode and his human-hunter allies. Unfortunately, Hell itself has sent an assassin to erase our antihero, and even a new set of allies may not be enough to protect him.

Enjoy Peter's final exciting adventure!

Part of the United States of Monsters universe with the Bright Falls Mysteries, Psycho Killers in Love, Morgan Detective Agency, and The Red Room.

Vampiraz4Life
(Straight Outta Fangton #3)
by C.T. Phipps
I was given an audio version and the review is my own opinion.
What I like about these books is the fun and witty references to movies, books, and other social media. They are sometimes so sneaky, the author slips them in and I have to pause a second to catch on!
This book continues our story of Peter the vampire and his friends. The weird situations they get into, mostly not their fault.
What I didn't like was the narrator's voice in the beginning. He sounded so stiff and robotic. I didn't notice it as much later or I just got use to it!

Best. Vampire. Book. Ever.

So firstly, I was given a review copy in exchange for my review.

[No spoilers]

That being said this is my favorite vampire series ever and this third part of the trilogy was so long awaited. Was the book worth the wait? SUCK YES.

The characters we love are here and most get so many cool character moments that it makes me happy that I re read the series in anticipation! I remember all the call backs and loved how they interacted with the new characters.

The action was good as always. I love how the action led into the world building and even small character moments.

The weaving of the pandemic into the story was a stroke of genius and made sense for the world created.

All in all. This was a home run of a third book and I patiently wait for more from these characters in the United States of monsters.

A fantastic end to a fantastic series!

Full disclosure: I own all three ebooks in this series, in addition to both of the other audible versions of the books in this series. While I have, as of this writing, only listened to the first three chapters in the newest audiobook, I can tell that this book maintains the high standards of excellence seen in the first two books in the series!

First, the story: one of the characters describes the main character as "if Kevin Smith directed interview with the Vampire". Well, the Fangton trilogy is all that and more. I would describe it as "Supernatural meets Vampire the Masquerade as directed by Monty Python". The characters are great, the story is gripping, and the jokes will have you laughing out loud! I highly recommend this to any fan of contemporary fantasy who would like to see things roasted a bit.

As for the audiobook, this is another home run! The narrator Cary Hite perfectly embodies the main character Peter Stone (whose perspective the entire trilogy is told from), and his expressing of events in the book makes them refreshing and new. I found myself laughing all over again to humor that I had already read, and much of that can be attributed to Mr Hite.

I not only recommend the ebooks, I recommend all of the audiobooks as well. they are all narrated by Cary Hite, and are all a fun and entertaining listen.

my favorite series

if a series must come to an end, then this was the best way to end it. I hate that it has ended. there isn't anything about this series that I don't like except that it isn't longer.

Absolutely Excellent

Going into the universe(s) that Phipps has created is still one of my all-time favorite things. There are crossovers and mentions of other characters galore. References to pop culture both old and new. And lots and lots of cheesy jokes. The amazing part is that those alone can sustain a book – but then Phipps throws in interesting and unique characters and plots causing each story to jump off of the pages.

Vampiraz4Life might be the weirdest title I’ve ever typed out for a review but it was an excellent book. Phipps brings these characters to life in ways that surprise me every time. This is the third book in the Straight Outta Fangton series and LOTS of things have happened in the first two books and even more happen in this one. I think this one had more “wtf” moments than any of the other two books so far (and I mean that in a good way).

Peter Stone is one of the many interesting characters that Phipps has created – but the “self-hating vampire” always shines/glitters (haha vampire reference) in these books making me fall in love with him more and more. Vampiraz4Life was no different – Stone was challenged a lot and had to make quite a few tough decisions that affected him and his friends.

Overall, I really enjoyed Vampiraz4Life. I blew through it. So fast that I think it was in the top two of my fastest finishes in Phipps’ collection. Add in the great narration by Cary Hite and you’ve got a wonderfully fun and funny book. Hite was able to grasp the snark and sarcastic tones of all the characters allowing for an already funny book to become funnier.

Good book

CT Phipps writes with a snarky, funny style all his own. This is another example of classic Phipps. I like his crossover novels too. The narrator is good .

Book 3 is another fang-tastic installment!

Phipps fills his stories with snarky dialog, witticisms and pop culture references. And I love it. This book continued the story of Peter Stone and his Motley crew. The story is engaging and the characters are relatable, if a bit outlandish.
Carey Hite gives an excellent performance of this audiobook.
Thank you for another enjoyable tale.

I appreciate the world building

I'm a big fan that C.T. Phipps continues to intertwine characters from his other books into his novels. It makes the world's he crafts both bigger and smaller at the same time. I never get sick of the endless pop culture references. While listening to this story I wonder if I missed a storyline or a different novel for him to loop back to tell the tell. I don't think he has a book or series that I don't like. Thank you Charles, please keep expanding your artistry!

fangtastic end to a fun series

I've enjoyed this series quite a bit - it feels like C.T. Phipps loves vampire stories as much as I do while also acknowledging just how absolutely ridiculous they are when you scratch even a little bit below the surface. As a vampire story I enjoyed it immensely, I also laughed at all the jokes about vampire stories, including the 4th wall ones at it's own expense.
Pulling in the pandemic worked really well, and helped cement the parallel between our reality and the book's. And I enjoyed the thought experiment of how a pandemic would impact the supernatural.
The United States of Monster books are getting more and more entwined - I don't think it's strictly necessary to have read the earlier works but some things might not make very much sense without them. And they're fantastic books, so really it's a win/win to go read them as well if you haven't.
This was a nice close to the trilogy without feeling too final. More like a season finale than a series finale. And with how the characters walk in and out of each others books, it feels more like goodbye for now to these characters than goodbye forever. Which I like. It's always fun to see who is going to pop up where in them.

Final part of Fangton Trilogy Doesn’t Disappoint

This is the concluding part to the Fangton trilogy, and I am more than pleased with how the series has been wrapped up. The story had me grinning from Chapter 1 with its usual banter and humour.

It is also a bit more closely linked to the authors Bright Falls and Red Rooms series, although you can read / listen to this without knowing about them. It is nice for that wider world link up. I think there could probably do with being a reading order to the books across the wider story world for people coming into the series.

The narrator is as good as ever and that makes the audiobook very immersive.

While the trilogy has finished, I can’t wait to see what happens next in the world that has been built.
