BLOODY ACQUISITIONS is easily the best book in the Fred, the Vampire Accountant series. Drew Hayes’ writing has improved a lot since THE UTTERLY UNINTERESTING AND UNADVENTUROUS TALES OF FRED, THE VAMPIRE ACCOUNTANT. He’s managed to keep all of the amazing things that make the world of Fred, that Vampire Accountant so lovable, while ditching all of the bad parts. This is no longer a collection of novellas, but one story. BLOODY ACQUISITIONS still has an episodic feel to it, but it follows one story line.

Super heroes are a little outside of what we usually review here, but since I enjoyed SUPER POWEREDS YEAR 1 so much I figured I’d review it here. While I was eagerly awaiting the release of Drew Hayes next book in the Fred, the Vampire Accountant series, I decided to look into some of the other books he’s written. I’m usually not a big fan of super hero books, tv shows, or movies, but since I loved Drew Hayes other series I decided to give SUPER POWEREDS YEAR 1 a try.
THE UTTERLY UNINTERESTING AND UNADVENTUROUS TALES OF FRED, THE VAMPIRE ACCOUNTANT is one of the best books I’ve read this year. I love urban fantasy and paranormal romance, but sometimes they get a little too serious. These are stories about werewolves, vampires, witches, and eldritch horrors. These are ridiculous and crazy things, I love the serious stories, but it’s fun to take a comedic twist on the genre.
