Publisher's Summary

From the best-selling author of the Supervillainy Saga 

Derek Hawthorne has ascended to become a member of the all-powerful Committee, which rules the world through the nebulous House. The House, officially, exists to protect humanity from the vampires, demons, and other forces of darkness that imperil humanity. Unofficially, it exists to protect its own power. 

When his old partner, Christopher Hang, turns up as one of the undead — Derek is nonplussed to say the least. Christopher also has a message that troubles the tiny remains of Derek's conscience: The House is running a secret project to not only control supernaturals but eliminate them. Now, Derek has to figure out if he's to side with the supernatural or humanity or neither. Oh and did we mention Dracula, pirates, and werewolves were involved, too?

The Perfect sequel!

This was the perfect sequel. It managed to keep all the elements of the first book that made it so enjoyable, while adding enough new material to keep you hooked. This time around, Derek goes up against Dracula and the vampires, whilst dealing with being possessed by a spirit of murder. The action was well written and fast paced, the plot went in direction I wasn't at all expecting, and I was really hooked. If you've read/listened to book one, you will love this even more!

Awesome!

Eldritch Ops is book 2 of the Red Room series by C.T. Phipps. I'm already loving this series and book 2 is much better than the first! I'm certainly looking forward to the rest of the series! Great world and character building! The main character, Derek Hawthorne, is a supernatural spy! Lots of action, vampires, werewolves, wizards, and an exciting listen! Jeffrey Later does am excellent job with the narration!

Action packed - espionage with a twist!

The continuing story of Derek Hawthorne is intriguing and full of deception, lies and everything that makes an espionage story good. What makes this one better than usual is the fact that the characters are gifted and paranormally endowed – vampires, sorcerers, wizards, demons, and more – and, the House consists of secret factions with ulterior motives! Add in Derek’s former partner (now a vampire), Dracula, and a deadly battle between the “House” and monsters … well, this is the perfect mix for a supernatural thriller. Derek with his merry band of friends and back-up moves to eliminate the impending war but in order to do so, Derek must wade through the politics and double-crossing schemes. C.T. Phipps has a unique writing style which is such that the listener cannot help but get a front-row seat into who Derek truly is – we witness his thinking process, his better left unsaid words that come out, and his special skill at snappy quips. Phipps creates a character that one truly enjoys and comes to feel for early. I enjoy Phipps's ability to fold in pop culture references in snarky dialog which flows smoothly. His ability to tie all his novels into one universe subtly connecting characters, storylines, and events. There were no storyline flaws, everything moved at a quick pace with several surprise twists. Jeffrey Kafer is a magnificent voice actor with his ability to assume each character seamlessly. His intuitiveness to give the right amount of inflection and action to his words is a perfect mix. Kafer is a master at narration/voice acting as he has a great deal of expertise and skill. There were no issues with the production or quality of this audiobook.

A tense supernatural thriller

Eldritch Ops (Red Room book 2) by C.T. Phipps is a book I requested and the review is voluntary. This book is a very intense supernatural thriller! The "House" with the many color levels is a secretive group the take care of monsters. Monsters and the House have been fighting for ever. Now our guy of the story is team House because his dad is head of the House. But certain things happen to make him questions the morals of his dad. Then he finds his friend is alive but turned into a vampire. He thought he was dead. Is his friend still his friend? There are so many double, crosses, I don't know what to call it! You have to stay on your toes with this one. Stay four steps ahead! Great action, psychological thriller along with supernatural complete with vampires, werewolves, demons, and magic! Very exciting! Unpredictable! Really loved this! Kafer is terrific at the narration!

Instant Cult Classic

This series has intriguing new elements as well as a creative web that weaves them into the more classical mythos and dogma. C. T. Phipps built a world and its inhabitants out of dry wit and clever dialogue. Jeffrey Kafer's voice suits the main character's so keenly due to the fact that both Nathaniel Hawthorne and Jeffrey Kafer suffer the same medical abnormality. The presence of 3 testicles has been put to good use in their deep powerful voice. The pitch and edge of the merest gravel. Of the multiple CT Phipps novels I have enjoyed, this is my second favorite series. The Cthulhu Armageddon series will always hold first place to this eye of yog-sothoth.

“ What the f@ckety f@ck!?”

Brilliant! A great story, well written (just like everything Charles writes!) full of action, wit, snark and pop culture references! Jeffrey is the perfect partner in crime for Charles’ writing with great character voices and pacing. He really helps bring the story to life. Ok, some of the foreign accents aren’t perfect, but not enough to put a dampener on things! Honestly, listen to ANYTHING that Charles or Jeffrey put your way! This is my honest opinion on a free review copy.

The truth about paternal influences.

C T Phipps writing is quirky funny. Daniel Hawthorne is the man you go too when no one else can help but dad (I am your father) is doing what he does best in the background. We need more. Jeffrey kafer is perfect and easy to listen too.
