    One thought on “Pulling up Stakes 2”

    1. This is really the second half of a novel rather than a book in its own right. That said, there was a weird discontinuity: part 2 starts out by talking about Rodney, and I assume that this is the character formerly known as Arnold, but it confused me for a while. I assume that the author renamed the character at some point, but only did it in one of the installments rather than both. Aside from that, there are a few typos (I counted 5 between both parts), but I've seen a lot worse in some other [...]

    2. Part 2 ups the StakesWell, if you thought Vince was in trouble in part one, everything twists and turns and things get a lot worse. Vince and Hannah, sister of his betrothed, join together to battle their way through high vampire politics. The ending is totally perfect. There is a hint at the end as to further adventures coming up. Bring them on!

    3. Read that synopsis up there of the book. Go ahead read it, I'll wait. Read it? Sounds cheesy as hell, huh? I was thinking the same thing. I was also thinking that I really don't like books about vampires so much. They're all sexy, super human humans anymore and that's just boring. I like vampires as monsters to be feared, not something to jump in bed with. Forgive me, I digress. So, the synopsis sounds terribly cheesy and not worth the read, right? Well, that's just wrong. It's great. Incredibly [...]

    4. Pulling Up Stakes 4 of 5 stars and Pulling Up Stakes 2 - 4 of 5 starsThis is going to be a two-part review as the first book is more of a novelette.Vince Hammond is a vampire slayer - but not just any type of vampire slayer (yes, there are more than one kind) he's a vampire slayer from an ancient order of vampire slayers - a thorough-bred vamp slayer, if you will.The only problem is, he's been turned into a vampire himself.Which is a problem since he has to now figure out how to balance his vamp [...]

    5. I love Peter David, and this book was only $.99 so why not? The problem as I soon discovered is that this is only part one. I'm not even sure if it's the first half. (I think it is, cause the end blurb says "Coming Soon: the conclusion") There's no indication that this is just the first part, and no indication where the second half is or if it's even forthcoming.If I hadn't paid just a buck for it, I might be pissed. I know how books are -- sometimes it can be months or years between sequels (Ge [...]

    6. I'm not generally a vampire story fan, if I were this would get 4 stars for sure. I read the first installment in 1 afternoon and the second the next afternoon. Very much enjoy this author's writing style and pacing, but by the end of the book I can say I don't feel invested at all in the characters. Sure, they are quirky and interesting, but its vampires, or humans dealing with vampires (or a vampire pretending to be human dealing with vampires and humans), having external and internal conflict [...]

    7. Like the previous installment, this was a fast and fun read, but like the last installment, the abrupt ending of the first book meant for an abrupt start of the second book. You almost fill like you've been thrown in the deep side of the pool, and it's a bit tough to remember all of the supporting cast. Still, this book is more than superior to the first "Pulling Up Stakes" with an unexpected twist which puts the entire premise on its ear!

    8. Another fun, though brief, book. This continues the undead adventures of Vince, the body man/vampire in hiding.There's some romance in this one.There are also some political problems in the world of vampire hunters.There's even a pretty awesome climactic fight scene, complete with super soakers, flame throwers, crossbows, and a collapsing building. Cool.All that, and ultimately a happy ending. My kind of book.

    9. A necessary sequel.This and Pulling Up Stakes make one complete story. So for any other author I might have rated this lower. However Peter David is a master. He draws you in with a flawed but entertaining main character. There is also a bit of a bait and switch in the plot, but I can't say any more without giving away spoilers.

    10. Like the last instalment, this was enjoyable enough but ultimately suffered heavily from the first person narrator. Also was relieved to discover I didn't imagine the character name change toward the beginning of the book.

    11. Great read but not for kids I wished the language was toned down a tad as it would have been a great middle school alternative to those other vampire books! As it is high school and up will enjoy avince's tale despite the somewhat too pat and predictable ending.

    12. A really good follow up to the first, ties everything very nicely. A few issues with Amber's character, but overall such a fun read. And definitely one of the best vampire books I've read in awhile.
