Melissa's Review:

The Utterly Uninteresting and Unadventurous Tales of Fred, the Vampire Accountant is book one in the Fred, the Vampire Accountant series. I grabbed this one after seeing a review by Melanie at HotListens.

Fred is such a different take on vampires that I'm used to. He's not a vicious killer or a swoon-worthy hero with fangs. He's exactly what you'd picture if you asked yourself what a vampire accountant looked like. He wears a sweater vest, and glasses and really doesn't like confrontation. This novel is full of short stories about Fred, and I enjoyed each story more than I expected, mainly due to the humor mixed in. We get a good dose of other paranormal beings throughout the stories from werewolves to necromancers. We even see Fred get a girlfriend which fit the story well.

Fred, the Vampire Accountant was a really different take on vampires and I appreciated the originality and the humor. If you're a fan of vampires or want to try something different from the norm you should pick this book up!

The Narrator:

This was my first audiobook narrated by Kirby Heyborne and I thought he did a wonderful job. I found he suited Fred's character really well and it was easy to get sucked into the story.

  7. Awesome review, Mel. Yes, definitely sounds different. The vampires I've read were always swoon-worthy. Glad that you enjoyed this book. :)
