The Utterly Uninteresting and Unadventurous Tales of Fred, the Vampire Accountant
The Utterly Uninteresting and Unadventurous Tales of Fred, the Vampire Accountant | Drew Hayes
23 posts | 23 read | 71 to read
Some people are born boring. Some live boring. Some even die boring. Fred managed to do all three, and when he woke up as a vampire, he did so as a boring one. Timid, socially awkward, and plagued by self-esteem issues, Fred has never been the adventurous sort. One fateful night - different from the night he died, which was more inconvenient than fateful - Fred reconnects with an old friend at his high school reunion. This rekindled relationship sets off a chain of events thrusting him right into the chaos that is the parahuman world, a world with chipper zombies, truck driver wereponies, maniacal necromancers, ancient dragons, and now one undead accountant trying his best to "survive." Because even after it's over, life can still be a downright bloody mess.

“I was midway through packing when I paused to contemplate whether it was appropriate to bring the blood.” 😂😂😂

Readergrrl 😂😂😂 Reminds of the FX series, What We Do in the Shadows. 3mo
Maria514626 @Readergrrl I haven‘t watched it. Is it good? 3mo
Readergrrl @Maria514626 It is wildly inappropriate but SOOOO funny! 4 vamps planned world domination by conquering NYC but ended up on Staten I. going to town council meetings and trying to find virgin blood at RPG festivals (evidently that‘s the only place virgins in America can be found). My favorite is Colin who is an energy vampire and of course hunts his prey in the staff room or at the water cooler at the office. I die every episode! 😂😂😂 3mo
Maria514626 @Readergrrl That sounds bonkers and fantastic! I‘m going to check it out! Thanks! 2mo

#pricedrop! My husband and his family are passionate fans of Hayes' Super Powereds series; I haven't tried him yet.

This light hearted and unusual look at the un-lives of supernatural beings as narrated by Fred the Vampire accountant did not disappoint. It‘s hard to both be light hearted and pull off a believable world in which these beings exist, yet the author does. Much more interesting than the title let‘s on, as Fred continually underestimated himself. Loved it

This was given to me by @TK421 in the #booktoteswap and wow did I enjoy this! There were many times I literally laughed out loud. Fred is hilarious and very relatable. I have already added the next book in this series to my TBR and I cannot wait to read more about Fred‘s adventures!

TK421 I'm glad you liked it! 😁 2y
Crash I found it funny. What I like about this series is that it's not your typical vampire series. 2y
DiruVamp @crash it‘s really not! I‘ve read many a vampire series and this is totally different. It was “real” - I think if I were a vampire I‘d be a lot like Fred 😂🧛🏻‍♀️ 2y
squirrelbrain As an accountant (though not a vampire!) I totally had to stack this one! 2y
DiruVamp @squirrelbrain I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. 2y

OMG! I just started listening to this audiobook on the way to pick up my granddaughter from school. I could not stop chuckling. This book is hilarious. I don't know if I can wait to read it only while I'm driving. That was my original intent but I'll probably dig into it again later on tonight.

I enjoyed this one much more than I expected! Reading more like a collection of short stories than a traditional novel, Freddy's inadvertent adventures introduce a charming cast of characters and runs a gamut of hilarious and dangerous events. I will definitely be picking up the next book!
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5

Sue This has been sitting in the depths of my audiobook TBR for about a year. I'm glad you enjoyed it! 3y
RiotMom @Sue the audiobook is pretty great! The narrator is exactly how I pictured Fred in my brain. If you get some time, I highly recommend giving it a shot! 3y
suvata I had to add this to my TBR list. I'm retired now but in my past life I was an accountant. 3y

1. This cover is just brilliant.
2. This book is anything but uninteresting and unadventurous.
3. Fred, the vampire accountant, gets a crash course in the parahumans. With his girlfriend, a zombie sidekick, two mages, and a werepony, Fred meets foe upon foe, and slowly learns that there is more to being a vampire than what is in the movies.

I laughed, I gasped and I teared up a little. It was a fun read, with a great twist at the end.

⭐⭐⭐⭐

Making apple sauce today (ended up making 6.5 gallons today) and finished my book.

Fred is obviously not your average vampire, he's timid and boring; until he meets an old friend. Great world building and characters that I really want to hear more about.
I enjoyed this book, although small parts feel repetitive.
I hope future books in this series become more like novels rather than a collection of short stories.

Another good one! The most unlikely vampire book yet, how can you pass up when the vampire is question is called Fred? An accountant vampire..... This one was a hoot to read! Here's my review.

This was cute, which isn't the normal word to describe a vampire book. The premise, what if you maintained your awkward, mild-mannered personality after becoming a vampire, played well. It was sweet and funny and Kirby Heyborne was a great narrator. Drawback: written like a collection of stories, so each new adventure started with reintroducing the characters. But overall good enough that I'll read the rest of the series. 👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼

DiruVamp The title is fantastical! I'm sold just on the title alone. Sounds fun will definitely be checking that one out! 3y

"You will eventually discover that under the movie stereotypes, imposed mystique, and overall inflated expectations, each and every one of us is at least a touch more boring than our images would indicate. And that is not a bad thing."

This is such a fun read! Who knew the undead could lead such mundane lives, while still having some adventures tossed in for good measure?

Fun and quick read, with a quirky sense of humor. Conveyed much the same voice as I have in my writings. Looking to read more if the author's work, and I suspect we would be gaming friends, given the opportunity.
