Publisher's Summary

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 accountant. Myths and legends, as it turns out, are not so great at taking appropriate deductions and keeping their receipts, and Fred is more 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 needs. Said monsters are, unfortunately, still spectacular at pulling Fred into trouble, though. And despite merely wanting to stick with simple paperwork, Fred once again finds that he is going to have to deal with enchanted weaponry, government agents, possessed houses, and one enigmatic dragon's interest. In the parahuman world, any business can turn deadly, even one as mundane as accounting.

    "Enjoyable Entertainment"

    I found that this installment of the series was, while just as light and entertaining as the first book, much better written. We didn't have the constant repetition of facts that were just divulged a chapter previous. The stories flowed better, turning into episodic archs that could stand on their own or be read as a whole. Really well done.

    The characters are likable and genuine. The narration is well done. The ending left me wanting more. I enjoy this series a great deal and am looking forward to the next book, if there is one.

    High marks and worth a credit.

    Story
    "Fearless Fred strikes again"
    Have you listened to any of Kirby Heyborne’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Kirby Heyborne has the perfect voice to be Fred, it's completely how I would imagine it in real life, and


    Any additional comments?

    I thought this was a lighthearted easy listen. You get to enjoy a new perspective on being a vampire that is less scandalized then the usual way they are portrayed. The only problem that I really had with this story, was that each story started by reiterating the same information (i.e. how he's now a vampire, and an accountant). This allows each story to stand alone, but is slightly less appealing when listening to them all consecutively.

    "Not just another vampire story"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. I never got bored with what was going on, and even if there are some cliche elements to the story, they don't seem over done or like every other vampire trope.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Bubba. I love that he's this big strong guy who's no-nonsense, but not a hard ass.


    Have you listened to any of Kirby Heyborne’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Only the first book in this series, which is pretty much the same by comparison.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    even being dead doesn't get you out of paying paxes

    "Way better than expected"

    I got this more out of the desire to listen to something - anything - besides my gossipy coworker, but I got hooked. Book two is at least as good as book one, and I liked the episodic nature of the stories. I also appreciate that they cut down on the formal recaps that were an annoyance in book one. Basically, if you liked the first Fred book, you'll enjoy this one too; if you've never read it, it's a good read. I originally anticipated more of a comedy that only had a couple predictable jokes, but there are actually some complex issues and personal growth seen in these plots. I am pleasantly surprised.

    "good"

    I love this character. I like the every chapter is almost a short story set up. I just felt unsatisfied at the end.

    "Once again love"

    This is a wonderful second part in the series. A little language in this book as well, again not so much to retract from the story. The performance is very well done and I don't think anyone could do it better then Kirby Hayborne.

    Nothing like someone reading you a story, then having a nap. What a life.

    It was a fun listen


    Which character – as performed by Kirby Heyborne – was your favorite?

    Fred


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Just laughed mostly. Fred just seems to be where trouble is and somehow manages to save the day.
