A very 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. Be no idea 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

It's taken a long time for the sequel to ESOTERRORISM to come out but I'm glad it finally is. Derek Hawthorne was my first character in a novel and as the cynical, snarky, jaded secret agent who fights demons--he's still one of my favorite. Now he's getting to fight Dracula, vampirates, and his own employers. I hope people who enjoyed the original novel will enjoy the sequel. ...more

Eldritch Ops is the sequel to Esoterrorism which follows Derek Hawthorne, a supernatural James Bond type. He is a member of the “House”, which is a group that works to keep the monsters under control and out of the public eye. Each branch of the group is a different “room” with a color. Derek is part of the “Red Room”, which are the spies.

Derek has lived his entire life in the House, his entire family is involved in some way at some point, including

I always like interesting takes on action heroes. Derek Hawthorne is the son of the world's most powerful magician...and a Council member of the Red Room. A clandestine organization hiding supernaturals from the public and partaking in shadow deals and secret wars with monsters. And they are just as bad as the monsters they wage war on.

Derek has never been much for magic, but is as tough as they come with supplementary magic to his not unformidable ability to channel his chi into various martial

Some good ole popcorn summer fun!

This book is much like the first one. It's fun, it's crazy and it just goes for it.

You got Dracula, magical swords, possessions, wizards and witches, secret plots, werewolves and a super secret spy who has more than one ace up his sleeve.

It's fast and it moves like a rocket. There are times I wish there was more to the lore, but this is about the action. Phipps enjoys his action. And his pop culture references which can be a bit much at times, but he doesn't spe

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! ...more

Somehow even better than the first!

Firstly, if you haven't read book one first, I'd highly recommend it as you may be lost here. Or listen to it on Audible, like I did. Sadly, this one isn't on there yet and I wanted to know what happens.
I can't really go into the plot because I'm almost certain to spoil something. Basically, the Red Room is under looming threat of annihilation from the Vampire Nation. Like the last book, nothing is as it seems.
The action was really great, and the characters we
