The second half of Pulling Up Stakes continues the story from part one, in which Vince, the vampire hunter who is himself a vampire, is drawn into an unexpectedly complicated situation that he's desperate to get out of.

It's taken me some time to read this ebook, reading it in chunks over the past nine months when the opportunity has arisen and I've not had any dead-tree books to occupy myself with. I was surprised to find though that this didn't impede my enjoyment of the story, and my memories of the story so far hadn't faded as much as I thought they might.

The novel is an interesting take on the vampire meme and Peter David certainly shows that he's able to think outside the box with his storylines. From what sounds like a simple premise he's created a rich world inhabited by deep and varied characters with a complex set of storylines.

Probably the best vampire story I've read, and definitely a world with plenty of possibilities for more stories to come.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun Vamp-Slaying Tale 2 8 Jan 2013
By K.W. McCabe - Published on Amazon.com
Pulling Up Stakes 4 of 5 stars and Pulling Up Stakes 2 - 4 of 5 stars

This 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 vampiric tendencies with his vampire-slaying legacy - and keep his vampire slaying mom from finding out.

But just how is he going to do this when his vampire-slaying fiance (that he didn't know he had) and all her family show up to raise hell?

I purchased Pulling Up Stakes by Peter David for $.99 and I'm glad I did.

The story was funny, fast-paced and entertaining - the major complaint I had was that it stopped abruptly in the middle.

I promptly purchased Pulling Up Stakes 2 for $2.99 and completed the story.

Pulling Up Stakes 2 continues with Vince Hammond's chaotic situation as he scrambles to try and protect his vampire-slaying fiance - while attempting to keep her family from discovering his true nature as he hunts down vampires who are up to no good.

But hunting vampires when you are a vampire is tricky business if you don't want the humans in your immediate surrounding knowing that you're a vampire too.

Will he be able to hide his nature effectively while wooing his unwanted fiance? Or is all hell going to blow up in his face?

Both stories were funny, lively, and the action never stopped.

I enjoyed both stories, but the funny thing about reading this series was that I didn't realize I had read this author before until reading his book listings at the end of his book.

I've had the pleasure of reading his traditionally published book The Woad to Wuin and enjoyed his dry brand of humor there as well.

I'll be sure to look out for the next book in the Vampire series: Raising Stakes.

Peter David is a wonderfully diverse writer. I couldn't put this one down, waiting to see where he was going with the story.

Peter David rarely lets me down with his work. Pulling up stakes was another good one. Very short, but it worked perfectly.
5.0 out of 5 stars Satisfying Conclusion to an Enjoyable Take on Vampires and Vampire Hunters 13 Sep 2013
By Jerry Chandler II - Published on Amazon.com
First - Pulling up Stakes 2 is the conclusion of the story from Pulling Up Stakes (Pulling Up Stakes ebook and not in fact a sequel story. Go and get that one first if you haven't already.

I burned through both parts back when I first bought them. Both are extremely entertaining and engaging reads and Pulling Up Stakes 2 closes the story out quite satisfactorily while leaving the door (actually quite a few doors) open for more stories down the road.

Peter David has found a nice take on vampires and vampire hunters here and establishes some solid groundwork for the particular rules and mythologies of his world that is both respectful to the traditional vampire stories as well as tweaked and updated a bit to suit the needs of his stories.

Well worth the purchase price and then some.
5.0 out of 5 stars Another great read from the Master 25 Aug 2013

Another sterling g example of Peter David's talent. The only complaint is that he doesn't write more, you know, a book a week would be nice. Only half joking.
