Publisher's Summary

Alek Fitz is the lead reaper for Valkyrie Collections, an agency that gathers debts for the paranormal elements of the world. Bound into modern-day slavery by a contract he cannot break and sold by parents he never knew, Alek works alongside demons, spirits, witches, and even Death himself to collect on deals made with humanity.

When Alek is forced to take a job from a local vampire hunting down a runaway thrall, he is immediately thrust into a world of blackmail and backstabbing, where the rules are nothing more than an inconvenience to ancient supernatural predators. For the first time, Alek has more to fear from his clients than from his debtors.

But Alek is the best in the business. It’ll take more than a vampire lord to keep a good reaper down.

Another great supernatural great! Need #3 now!

Blood Tally
Valkyrie Collections, Book 2
By: Brian McClellan
Narrated by: Luke Daniels
This book was just as great as the first! Alek is half Orc, a slave, and works to retrieve supernatural objects or debts. He also has a secret, a ring that contains a djinni! The djinni can talk to him telepathically. In this book, as in the last, there are many things going on such as twists, various backstabbing, and creatures. The job he is sent on is to find a vampires runaway thrall. Of course nothing is as it seems. Lots of action, magic, a witch, gargoyle, a cat that's not a cat, vampires, and more. Humor and supernatural fun!
Luke Daniels is one of the best so the story really blasts out as bigger than life! Terrific!!! Can't wait for the next book!

Not as bad as people say

I'm familiar with Luke Daniels from the Magic series so I had no problem with his narration style and thought the story was nothing ground breaking, but entertaining and fun. If your not an elitist prick this audio book is just fine.

Alex and Maggie makes friends

If you have read book one you know the characters. A few new characters have been added that I hope will be permanent. Each new character lessens the isolation to Alek and Maggie, his Jinn.
Alek Fitz, is a debt collector for the supernatural elements of the world. So why does he now have the job to return a vampire thrall back to his master? That one is not in his job description. Ada knows that Alek does not get involved with that stuff. But when you are a slave you must do as the boss says.
Alek and Maggie, go off to find a thrall. This is not the straight up job that it should be. That pisses Alex off. He is a professional and expect others to treat him as such even if he is a slave. That means supplying information that could facilitate him completing the job is appreciated and double crossing a client is greatly discouraged.
While ducking and dodging the vampire clans, Alex and Maggie must also deal with a witch. Did I say that Alex and Maggie does not trust witches, nobody trust witches.
There is action, fun, sarcasm, and witty banter between the characters.

Another Must Listen Too Book

Again, this is another Awesome story in this series!

The author has once again written a very good second follow up. The story never let me down. He builds is world and describes that world with just the perfect amount and he also had a lot of humor that had me listen to the entire book in one day.

Now as always Mr. Luke Daniels is just OUTSTANDING in his performance of the reading!!! He is one of my absolute favorite and I know that when he does the story...... Its going to be AWESOME!!

Yes this is a must read/listen to book.... Do let it go by!!! LOL

A fair bit of cringe but entertaining

The intriguing world building does most the leg work. A bit shorter than expected too.

Great series BUT..

First of all I can tell you if I'd paid attention to the number of pages and how many hours of listening on audible I would never have bought this. I mean, $13.50 for the Kindle and the audible is way too much for 176 pages. So, I won't be continuing with this series.

Other than that I really like Alek and Maggie, his jinn ring. This was mostly about vampires and Alek's hatred of them, even though he had to work with them, before he, Maggie and his new friend Eddie, the Sphinx, killed them all.

No romance and the F-bomb was used 49 times.

As for the narration: Luke Daniels is simply wonderful! Every person has their own voice and his expressions are great.

Blood tally is bloody awesome

Even with the shorter length of these books, I would pay a full credit for book 3, if only it existed. And folks, that’s saying something because I am cheap.

This is urban fantasy with the perfect balance of humor and heart, action and mystery, familiar and new. Book 2 features vampires and a GD witch, yet still breaks new ground with a clever mystery involving thralls. I love the ongoing dynamic of Alek, Maggie, and Ada. But, my favorite part about book 2 is the addition of some engaging, and hopefully recurring characters. From a GD witch to a rock golem and a tuna loving sphinx, this group has the makings of the best Scooby Gang of mystery solving misfits ever.

Non stop action

I loved the first book in the series, and this one was every bit as good or better. Alec's conflicts gave the plot more depth, and Olivia and Eddie were great additions.

Just pure entertainment

I just love this series. I'm typically a pure epic fantasy guy. But I would listen to 30 books in this series without taking a break. I love the world, the characters, the narrator, the writing, the pace, the jokes, I loved it all.

I wish they were twice as long, but worth every credit/penny spent!

Keep them coming.
