34 starsReview to come once I ve written a review for the first book This book felt like a filler with a scattered bunch of short stories than a follow "up but the characters were as enjoyable as always What people think vampires look likeWhat Fred "but the characters were as enjoyable as always What people think vampires look likeWhat Fred vampire is like I absolutely love how this series turns the trope of supernatural creatures on their head but still makes a fun action packed series 4 StarsReviewThis was another sweet light funny enjoyable audiobook in the series Fred is a reat easily likeable character I especially love how honest he is no subterfuge no manipulation no hiding anything He s just honest and trustworthy and I love him for it And he s so oblivious to how brave and caring he is and how everyone else sees him I also like how sweet his relationship with Crystal is They re so different but they balance each other and they respect and love each others differences The whole series has a really sweet friendshipfound family aspect too that I like Fred s social circle is a motley crew of characters and it s really sweet how Fred spent his whole life being kind of alone but now has these people he cares about and who care about him But at the same time I also liked how this book about and who care about him But at the same time I also liked how this book scenarios when Fred was without his friends andor took initiative even being the one to save the day in one case Last but not least I highly recommend the audio for this series I make no secret that I m not a fan of audiobooks but it works so well for this series since the story is told as a series of memoirs and the narrator really brings the characters to life Overall this was another set of stories I enjoyed listening to Original Review Metaphors and Moonlight I enjoyed DEATH AND TAXES as a decent seuel to the original FRED THE VAMPIRE ACCOUNTANT novel Fred is a character who wouldn t be very interesting to read about if he wasn t a vampire as he constantly insists but is hilarious in his deadpan reaction to things like kidnappings sentient Overlook esue hotels who are really nice superhuman conventions sinister tests and EVIL PLOTS OVERTHROW THE DRAGON KING OF THE WEST plots overthrow the dragon king of the West don t think much changed characterization or plot wise but it was a solid and dependable book I really like Fred s relationship with Krystal even if it feels a bit sexless They re adults they can allude to having a bit spice than your average Victorian era relationship This is a Russian Winter good comfort food fiction and worth an afternoon s read I m alsooing to be picking up the next in the series810 My review and an extended sample of the audiobook are posted at HotlistenscomAn Accountant in the WarehouseFred has Meg and the Mystery in Williamsburg (Meg Duncan, gotten certified as a Certified Public Parahuman Accountant He is now your officialuy to find you all of those paranormal tax deductions His first client with his new credentials is king of the therians were creatures in the area We met Richard and his daughter Sally in the first book There is also Gideon who is a very old very powerful dragon who likes to disguise as a playmate for Sally When someone tries to kidnap Sally and Fred since he was there things Pregnant Man go awry An Agent at the ConventionIn this story Krystal Fred and Bubbao to setup at the convention which is the paranormal s version of ComicCon In this story we meet Krystal s ex fiance s sister is already setting up the booth We learn about mages witches therians and other creatures When someone steals some of the weapons of destiny the ang needs to hunt them down before the Con officially startsWhat I loved most in this story was how they kept normal humans from finding out about this Con Parahumans tried to keep the veil of disbelief about themselves Red tape usually Krystal The seuel to the bestseller THE UTTERLY UNINTERESTING AND UNADVENTUROUS TALES OF FRED THE VAMPIRE ACCOUNTANT After discovering just how filled with magic intrigue and adventure the parahuman world of being an Undead American can be Fredrick Frankford Fletcher did exactly what was expected he became a certified parahuman accounta. Undeath and Taxes Fred the Vampire Accountant #2Hat when Sally reaches maturity she will be able to ive birth to A Dragon And Given dragon and Kawaii Manga given the dragon birth rate is exceedingly low this is a huge deal Gideon has therefore struck a deal with Richard Sally s father torow up with Sally as her playmate and then marry her when she becomes an adult There s only one word for this kind of scenario and it s rooming Even if Gideon doesn t touch Sally sexually until she s and adult it s still catfishingHayes treats the betrothal between Gideon doesn t touch Sally sexually until she s and adult it s still catfishingHayes treats the betrothal between and Sally as a huge secret but not because of how problematic their relationship is but because of Sally s potential to breed dragons First off making a female character important because of her potential reproductive ability reduces her to nothing but a womb and it s sexist and wrong To then have Gideon row up alongside her sharing in her confidences playing the role of friend and shaping who she becomes only to set himself up as a suitor once she reaches maturity is straight out of a pedophiles playbook There s simply no other way of looking at it It took some of enjoyment out of Undeath and Taxes for me even if it only accounts for a small part of the bookNo matter how much Fred dislikes violence and being placed into situations where has to be brave he always seems to end up in some sort of confrontation Because Undeath and Taxes is written in the form of multiples short stories it uickly becomes at least somewhat sort of repetitive The situations vary but inevitably Fred finds a way to out smart each story s particular antagonist or is saved by a stronger friend The only thing that changes from beginning to end is that with each new situation Fred becomes less and less likely to panic resigned to the fact that this is his life now At the end he is even willing to sacrifice himself to save his friends having determined that they have become a family That s a long way from the vampire who tried to run away from the werewolves in The Utterly Uninteresting and Unadventurous Tales of Fred the Vampire AccountantRead More Well this is what happens when I The Accursed go scrolling around in Audible sigh I m not mad at all I m loving this series but thereoes my reading plan and my credits and we re barely in January And yet I wholeheartedly recommend this seriesThis second installment surprised me In a Pinkalicious: Merry Pinkmas! good way While it continues in the same vein of individual comic adventures somewhere along the line itoes deeper The characters row in emotional depth and concepts like chosen family love or what it even means to be alive are broached artfully and without preachiness I don t want to spoil anything but I ll just say that Albert and Gideon are characters in completely opposite ends of the spectrum but just as compelling uite a featLet s hear it for the B Team accountants beta heroes unbreakable bonds of friendship and finding your tribe I m forging ahead broke but happy Solid fun Such a different concept too I mean accountant vampire and friends isn t a common idea Love Albert s new job A continuation of what came beforeThe second installment continues on the same track as the first novel Fred Friends slowly make their way into the world of the parahumans You learn a bit about each character and see them develop reveal strengths and weaknesses while remaining well written fun to read If you liked the first book Read the second book and you won t be dissapointed I adore this series Told as a series of memoirs Fred recounts his adventures not that he was looking for any of his not so mundane undead life The narration is wonderful the cast of characters continue to row as we Swing Sideways get to know about Fred and his friends who have become his family. Ular at pulling Fred into trouble though And despite merely wanting to stick with simple paperwork Fred once again finds he isoing to have to deal with enchanted weaponry overnment agents possessed houses and one enigmatic dragon’s interest In the parahuman world any business can turn deadly even one as mundane as accountin. ,

Aid Lost applications extra fees piled on top of extra fees constantly changing dates and overall horrendous customer service We make the experience so terrible no one wants to come Let alone try again the next year I think my cable company has been stealing plays from your book Bubba remarked as he set a fourth box on the pile Other way around Every couple of years we have someone set up a Castcom account just to see if they ve come up with any new tactics They never fail to Disappoint Krystal RepliedA Sword Krystal repliedA Sword the CatacombsI can t say a huge about this story as it could spoil the previous story I ll just say that someone finds out that they are to become the new wielder of the Blade of the Unlikely Champion The Agency has Krystal bring the ang in so that this new wielder could be tested and likely recruited to the Agency A Lawyer in the ManorWhen Fred is asked to come to a meeting at the Charlotte Manor which is now a bed and breakfast to basically interview for the job of accountant for investment firm When the person from the investment firm starts talking about buying this BB the employees decide this is not want they want and take matters into their own hands Fred solves this problem in a way that truly suits Fred A Dragon in the OfficeWhen Fred Dancing with Mr. Darcy goes toala at Richard s home Fred notices that Gideon is not what it seems Fred Lesca goes on the hunt to try to figure out what isoing onOnce again I really enjoyed this story It is a light hearted read with plenty of laugh out loud moments If you re looking for a paranormal read that is funny with some action and less romance this is the story for you The story format of several small stories that build on each other is different but I find it works really well with this seriesNarrationNow when I listened to the first book I mentioned that Kirby Heyborne didn t do a very Sharpes Trafalgar good job with female characters I m not 100% sure what changed but I found that his narration with female voices didn t bother me as much in this story I think he is areat voice for Fred He sounds exactly what I think Fred would sound like He Does A Really Good Job a really Punished good job the big trucker and werebeast Bubba I love LOVE Fred 3would like to see of him and Gideon fingers crossedCan t wait for the next installment Fred has come a long way since becoming a vampire He sone into business for himself as an accountant found a irlfriend and has made a circle of dependable friends That s not bad for a socially awkward person who used to spend most of his time alone Now if only he could stop finding himself in positions which force him to brave something Fred most certainly is not then things could be perfectJust like The Utterly Uninteresting and Unadventurous Tales of Fred the Vampire Accountant Undeath and Taxes Is Told Through A Series Of Short Stories This Is told through a series of short stories This is not my preferred format for reading and I would have liked one cohesive story from start to finish better That being said there was a nice flow to the mini short stories and Hayes took care to add to the meta even if I am not pleased with what the addition turned out to be Hayes also ave us a reat sense of the hierarchy in the parahuman world and how it is policed by agents My largest complaint with Undeath and Taxes is the predatory child molesting tone it took in terms of Sally s relationship with Gideon the centuries old Dragon From the beginning Fred wonders why Gideon would chosse to cloak himself in a child s body and become Sally s playmate In Undeath and Taxes we learn that Sally is a Tiamet uite literally the mother of dragons Go ahead and let your mind channel Daenerys Targaryen for a moment and then stroll on back This means Nt Myths and legends as it turns out are not so reat at taking appropriate deductions and keeping their receipts and Fred is than happy to return to a life others view as woefully dull expanding his accounting business to cater to various monsters and their respective financial needsSaid monsters are unfortunately still spectac.
