Fred, the Vampire Accountant book 6. Spoilers ahead for the earlier ones.

This is the wedding one. However, it is, as usual, incidents in the life of Fred, the Vampire Accountant. He mentions that there are things he must get out of the way before the wedding, but they are not all intrinsically bound to it. Like the first person to ask Amy for financing and the attempt to hire another paranormal to train as an accountant -- both of which get interesting. Looking for venues also features. The

I love your work! I read your Super powereds series too and I enjoyed that as well. I don’t know whether continuing either series would be wise, but I think you would have to sandbag your writing for me to actually be disappointed. I ... just love the characters you created. I can only hope to pull off something so good, but I’ll settle for even a fraction. Thank you for writing this series and please keep up the good work.

A great ending to a first act

Six books for a first act, you might think me mad. However, we are talking about beings that can count their lifespan in millennia. At this point, if my math is correct, we're only six years into this story, so I feel justified in that assessment. Drew has an amazing gift for character creation, and this series contains some of my favorites. My only slight disappointment is a major spoiler, and has more to with character change than anything I would fault the book

Particularly fun to read the second book/chapter "Something New" a couple of days after doing an escape room.
I just love Fred and Krystal and co, and look forward to whatever happens next.

Yay for Fred (and Drew Hayes)

Mr. Hayes has commented that it is hard to write a good first person narrative. That may be the case, but once again he proves that he is up to the task. The storyline progresses and we see the world developing and it’s all through the eyes of the first vampiric accountant that I’ve ever heard of. Bravo Mr. Hayes. I look forward to what comes next.

As a huge fan of the series, I was waiting not so patiently for this book and Drew Hayes didn’t dissapoint: The book is amazing! The story, same as the previous ones was narrated in Fred’s voice and another guest’s (now Amy’s). All the obstacles were there but as always Fred and Krystal and their clan succeeded, adding new friends and new challenges for future books (Is book 7 coming soon??? ) Drew Hayes kept showing us how good he is creating interesting plots for our beloved characters to ...more

Exactly the kind of tone and pace you've come to expect from a Fred novel. The characters are fairly flat, but it reads like getting to spend time with old friends. Perhaps this is due to no one having annoying catchphrases or other quirks that overstay their welcome, or that all of the characters seem fairly grounded and do not become caricatures of themselves. Whatever it is, the book was fun and warm and an enjoyable read. Recommended as a cute, light-hearted series that maintains its ...more

I maintain that the strength of this series is the accounting angle. Every time Drew Hayes is forced to try to weave an interesting narrative out of Fred's accountancy skills, we are always treated to a much more unique and original story than what you'd normally find in fantasy novels. It's refreshing in a genre that has so much potential but has been growing stale.

I say that as someone who's bookcases are probably filled with 85-90% fantasy. I love the genre. However, even I can see that the

𝑼𝒏𝒅𝒆𝒂𝒅𝒊𝒏𝒈 𝑩𝒆𝒍𝒍𝒔, Fred, the Vampire Accountant, Book #6
by Drew Hayes

I love Fred. What's not to love about a poor schmuck of a guy who suddenly becomes an undead immortal who must drink blood to survive, yet who never loses his morality, as opposed to losing his mortality, and whose first thought is to negotiate rather than fight, but who will jump in even when he is far out-matched to protect those he loves?

In this book, Hayes separates the action into parts, with each part having its chapter

When I first started reading this series, it wasn'tmy favorite, it was just good, but not great, but now, I have to admit that it is one of my favorites, the humor and the situations keep taking me by surprise and defying what we expect about the genre, but still managing to satisfy. Most of all, the character development it's amazing, and, even if at its core the characters are the same we fell in love in previous books, they keep stepping up and surprisingus and making us fall in love.

Great “Ending” to Fred (SPOILER)

I don’t know if he will be writing more books in the series, but, if not, this is a nearly perfect end. Fred, as always, attracts trouble, and, as always, finds a solution with his friends.

My only complaint is that Fred always wins with no real side-effects. It would have enhanced his character and relationships if (SPOILER) Asha had died instead of successfully turning. One thing I think this series needs is more failures.

Still, a fun Fred book and worth the

Not as eventful as previous volumes, still a fun read

Fred the accountant vampire wants nothing than to have a boring life, but trouble keeps finding him, which is good for us readers. In this volume though, he kind of gets his wish, as not very much happens compared to the previous entries, apart from a couple incidents that will have lasting effects. But it's still a fun read, and it sets things up for the next volume in this excellent series.

Fun read with old and new characters

A fun read where Fred and his clan continue to get embroiled in events bigger than they are, whether they want to or not. The main focus, however, remains in the people closest to Fred, as he and Krystal move into final preparations for their wedding.

Absolute fun

The Fred series just keep getting better and better with every book. Love the new characters. Fred's upcoming wedding is the main thread, but can I just say the job interview section is so much freaking fun.

Still have half the book to finish, and will update this review later, but just had to jump in and write how much fun I'm having reading this book.

Funny cute and sweet

I love this series. It's weirdly down to earth for a fantasy and has no qualms with calling out the fantastical aspects and shoving them in a more mundane direction. This book in particular had me laughing and smiling constantly. I would never turn down another book like this or even a spin off

I started reading his books with the NPC characters, moved to the college kids and continued reading till I found Fred. Everything about Fred makes me happy, actually all of the stories by Drew Hayes makes me happy. If you have not found his work please do so. Characters, story, world's come alive and I could live in any of them.

Wish it was longer

It was a fast read and nice addition to the series. My only complaints are too many loose ends, a few editing issues. I would have liked a little more in the book another story maybe. It isn’t my favorite of the series but it’s still fun. Overall, I would buy it again.

I would read this again! As always, touching, heartfelt, and just the right touch of thrilling adventure through an analytical, straight man of a vampire accountant.

Pretty good

It was a little more serious than the previous books but kept very close to the structure. Fred's books are about getting to know the characters and having adventures and this book was the same. Can't wait till the next installment

Powerful and Funny

The Fred books are often hilarious and heart wrenching. This is more the latter than the former, but is a joy to read regardless.

I recommend starting earlier in the series, for context and relationships, but you can start here and be just fine.

Great series

Another great story about the adventures of Fred, the most unique vampire. The whole gang is here since most of the stories focus on the wedding of Fred and Krystal. I hope this isn’t the last book for Fred.

A good strong story. A bit different in style, more like short stories connected but a good read. Great character interactions and just a bit smart. A pleasure to read.

New bounds are made, old magic is channeled, and Fred is still Fred. That is what I love about these books. The more things change the more they stay the same.
