[Read] ➮ Bloody Acquisitions (Fred, the Vampire Accountant, #3) ➶ Drew Hayes – 1sm.info
I confess myself surprised This being the third foray into this world Drew Hayes could ve just cruised on autopilot and I m sure I would ve been suitably entertained, however he chooses to go deeper This installment explores the widening or deepening of Fred s character who is he when it matters what is it to really be brave the nature of chosen family etc and he approaches these The Third Book In Drew S Outrageously Adventurous And Satirical Series, Including THE UTTERLY UNINTERESTING AND UNADVENTUROUS TALES OF FRED, THE VAMPIRE ACCOUNTANT Book 1 And UNDEATH TAXES Book 2.With A Thriving Parahuman Accounting Practice, A Steady Relationship, And A Circle Of Trusted Friends, Fred S Undead Life Has Become Enjoyable Than His Normal One Ever Was Unfortunately, It Also Seems That He S No Longer The Only Vampire To Appreciate The Up And Coming City Of Winslow, Colorado A New Clan Of Vampires Is Moving In, And They Aren T Well Known For Tolerating Outsiders In Their Territory.Now, Fred Must Cope With The Growing Presence And Threat Of Other Vampires Even As He Struggles To Keep Up With His Business S Demands And Make Time For His Friends Between Hidden Parahuman Towns, Crazed Vampire Hunters, Quarreling Mages, And The World S Least Subtle Spy, It Will Take All Of Fred S Wiles Just To Keep His Head Above Water And As The New Clan Sinks Their Fangs Deeper And Deeper Into His City, The Undead Accountant Is Faced With A Choice Between Two Equally Unappealing Options Flee His Home, Or Stand Against An Entire Clan Of Fellow Vampires. 4 StarsReview This was yet another sweet, light, funny, enjoyable audiobook in the Fred series It s getting harder for me to review them though since I ve liked the same things every time Fred is definitely a unique, atypical sort of vampire, but that s what makes him so likeable The found family aspect is great too I also thought it was neat getting to see a vampire hunter from a vampire s perspective There are lots of books movies shows in which hunters just go around killing any creature they find, but just because someone is paranormal, that doesn t means they re a monster Oh, also, I would totally read a book about Arch My review and an extended sample of the audiobook are posted at Hotlistens.com Once again, we are back in the world of Fred, the Vampire Accountant This series continues to be a lot of fun as Fred and his gang of friends go through his utterly interesting and adventurous tales In this series, each book has five shorter stories that all come together to tell a larger story about Fred.A Hunter in the StreetsIn this story, Fred meets up with a vampire hunter and the first vampire, besides his creator, that Fred has ever met He learns that he is quite infamous amongst the other vampires.A Sheriff in the CountryIn this story, Fred and the gang travel outside of Winslow, Colorado to Boarback, Texas Borback is a small town that isn t well known to humans In this town, paranormals live out in the open Many live there because they can t live anywhere else without exposing themselves It was really interesting seeing all of these other creatures of legend.A Lawyer in the MansionHere, Fred is invited by an old friend, which we met in an earlier book, who needs help settling a dispute between two siblings Their father had died and the estate was to be divided amongst the two However, figuring out the even distribution was difficult The siblings couldn t get along, so Fred was called in to do his accountant thing to assess the valu The adventures of Fred and his friends are just getting interesting as we move along Alos like that his group of friends is going.Highly recommend this series to people who like short adventures set in the paranormal urban fantasy setting. WowI didn t think it could get better after reading the first 2 of this series, but drew has done it again He has written a book that no matter how hard I tried I could not put it down, every page begging to be turned Drew has created a slew of characters everybody can relate to It Book three and it s still freaking awesome I love this series so so much This has definitely been my favorite Fred, the Vampire Accountant yet, and I really hope Drew Hayes keeps writing them In a way, the series has supplanted the Dresden Files in my heart words I never thought I d speak The two series are similar in that their first person narratives with a mixture of action and humor where the main character assembles an unlikely crew of supernatural allies to defend their hometown from threats Chicgao for Dresden, the fictional Winslow, Colorado for Fred The main difference is that Fred, the Vampire Accountant is a lot lighter There s a lot less violence and it s generally a lot lighter and Jim Butcher s obsession with sex which was always the most awkward part of the Dresden Files for me is also absent Now, ordinarily I like my fiction rather gritty, but maybe I m getting too old for that Over the years, the best part of the Dresden Files was the warmth and camaraderie between Dresden and his crew Well, that warmth while always a key point of the Dresden Files is even front and center for these books by Drew Hayes They are really and truly about friendship.I think for a lot of people the idea of reviewing this book in contrast with the Dresden Files might be weird or even off putting The Dresden Files has a very, very committed and huge fan base I get that, and by all means you can enjoy both But I couldn t avoid the comparison arising in my own mind as I sped through this third book So much of what I, personally, li My favourite so far There s something incredibly joyful about a bunch of misfits using paperwork to slap down murderous villians. What s not to love about a vampire accountant that wears a sweater vest This series is a lot of fun.
