One of the things which authors love is getting reviews, especially positive ones and I thought I’d share two of the best ones I got for THE GAMES OF SUPERVILLAINY.

The first review is from My World…in words and pages.

    I can’t express how much I enjoyed this book, and particularly in audio. It’s the fun I needed and will look forward to in future installments! Battles with Nazi Robot, dragon, Amazons, cybernetic dinosaurs, cultists, zombies, deal with ghosts, Death, demi god, ex-girlfriend of his own and his wife’s. Sounds like a lot but it all fits and makes for so much fun while battling. And Gary’s one liners along the way. LOL!

 The second review is from The Audio Book Reviewer.

     This was another fun ride, the way Merciless’ mind works to come up with the outrageous plans……his dry sarcastic and gene savvy sense of humor……the supporting characters Diablo, Cindy, Cloak…….I liked that Gary got to have an hour with his brother, and hope he shows up in future stories…..I also hope we get to see more involvement from Death….she is a pretty cool character.  I have to say the ending shocked the hell out of me, totally did not see that coming, I should have but didn’t.  I do have faith the Merciless (The supervillain without mercy ™) will prevail though and make it right.

     I hope my fans who haven’t checked out Games will decide to do so along with those who aren’t yet familiar. It’s doing well!

I’m very pleased to say one of my favorite websites has chosen to do a review of my book, ESOTERRORISM. The Fantasy Book Critic, a great website for news and articles as well as reviews about all the best fantasy on the internet.

What did they think?

They loved it!

Overall I very much enjoyed Esoterrorism as it was written with few things in mind, if you are looking for a fast-paced, action heavy thriller, then Esoterrorism will hit the bullseye. If you are looking for a change from the usual urban fantasy smorgasbord then Esoterrorism might do it for you. As for me, I was looking to read something new and exciting and Charles T. Phipps provided that in spades. I can’t wait to read the sequel volumes Eldritch Ops, and Operation: Otherworld. Give this book a try, I’m sure you will be hooked as well.

I hope you’ll check it out!

A review of Esoterrorism by The Bookie Monster

A great review of Esoterrorism by the Bookie Monster by S Kay Nash!

Esoterrorism is a highly entertaining adventure through a tried-and-true Urban Fantasy trope: agents from a secret organization protect the regular people of the world from the supernatural. I’d call this novel a mashup between James Bond and Kolchak the Night Stalker. 

There are plenty of franchises playing with this general theme, and the best way to stand out is to give readers memorable characters. C.T. Phipps offers us Derek Hawthorne, an insufferable smartass with the skills and experience to back up his wisecracks, his twin sister Penny, a powerful wizard, and his partner Shannon, a new agent from the European division.

An outstanding review from Mary Rajotte on Esoterrorism. She really liked it!


PUBLISHER:Ragnarok Publications

GENRES: Urban Fantasy/Paranormal

RATING: dropletdropletdropletdropletdroplet_grey (4/5)

Derek Hawthorne was born to be an agent of the Red Room. Literally. Raised in a conspiracy which has protected the world from the supernatural for centuries, he’s never been anything other than a servant of their agenda. Times are changing, though, and it may not be long before their existence is exposed.

When a routine mission uncovers the latest plan of the magical terrorist, the Wazir, Derek finds himself saddled with a new partner. Who is the mysterious but deadly Shannon O’Reilly? What is her agenda? Couple this with the discovery the Red Room has a mole seeking to frame Derek for treason and you have a plot which might bring down a millennium-old organization. Can he stop the Wazir’s mission to expose the…

Beauty in Ruins reviews Esoterrorism – 4 out of 5 stars


I was very pleased by this review of my book by the website Beauty in Ruins by Bob R. Milne. The reviewer managed to pick up on quite a few things and made a favorable comparison to a number of franchises I like.

“The Red Room is kind of a combination of Torchwood and S.H.I.E.L.D., while Derek is equal parts Jack Bauer and James Bond.”

“Esoterrorism is a testosterone fueled urban fantasy, the perfect novel for fans of who are tired of the paranormal romance trope, and who want to see more of the action and adventure element. It’s big, it’s frantic, it’s violent, and it’s very often funny as well. Hopefully Derek and Shannon will be back for further adventures, as we’ve just scratched the surface of this new world and its mythologies.”

Frank Errington’s review of Esoterrorism, “Some good old fashioned monster hunting”


Frank Errington is the first one to give a review of Esoterrorism. It’s not a completely positive review but, overall, he seems to have liked it and gave it four out of five stars. I’ll take that where I can get it.

Esoterrorism is well-written and at times, witty…”

“…you have everything you need for a rip-roaring urban fantasy thriller.”

“In all, Esoterrorism is a fun ride with plenty of magic and monsters.”
