Review originally posted at BooksOfMyHeart.net.
Psycho Killers in Love is a new story by C.T. Phipps, who is an author I really love. Phipps’s writing is one that always makes me laugh and this story is no different. This story brings to life a whole new group of characters set in the United States of Monsters books (Straight Outta Fangton, Bright Falls Mysteries, Red Room and Morgan Detective Agency series). William and Carrie are brother and sister are born “slashers” They have special powers and a need to kill. Their father is a ghost, who follows them around and gives them fits, as they don’t give in to the urge to kill as much as he would like, was also a slasher.
Things get even more hairy when William and Carrie meet a woman who goes around killing slashers, so of course William has the hots for her. But first, they work together to rescue the sorority sisters of Theta Alpha Alpha, which Carrie refers to as T&A (hehehe). There are a few twists and turns in the story that I won’t get into to avoid any spoilers.
While this isn’t my favorite C.T. Phipps story, I did have a good time while listening to it. I grew up with the 80s horror flicks and there are a lot of references used in this story, which I enjoyed, a lot. I also had a great time with the characters, which is no surprise, I always have fun with Phipps’s characters. You can read this story without having read any of the other books set in this world (this one actually takes place chronologically before the others). I do highly recommend this story to fans of 80s slasher films (and any horror fans in general).
Narration (5 stars)
This story was performed by Jeffery Kafer, who does a large portion of Phipps’s stories. He does a wonderful job with all the characters. He’s amazing at his ability to bring out the humor in a story. I’m always excited to listen to a book while he reads to me.
