The Utterly Uninteresting and Unadventurous Tales of Fred, the Vampire Accountant by Drew Hayes

imageSome 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. 


Who wouldn’t like a vampire book where the vampire in question is called Fred. He isn’t your usual vamp, he’s not muscular or fast or even good looking. Fred is an accountant who wears button down shirts, sweater vests and loafers for crying out loud! He doesn’t understand most of his power, he knows he is fast, has a faster metabolism and has heightened senses. He is also a bit of a coward, he likes to avoid confrontation and runs away from danger.

He gets himself into some seriously dangerous situations when he meets up with an old high school friend, Krystal, who is part of an organization called The Agency, who deal with parahumans. Along with a zombie called Albert, a werehorse called Bubba, mages Neil and Amy he finds himself in some strange situations.

This book is a hoot! It’s not your normal pumped up vampire paranormal book, it’s about a strange young man who was made but not really understanding everything he needs to know regarding his powers. He is the least likely vamp you will ever meet. That’s what makes it so much fun, instead of using brawn to get out of situations he uses hits wits. If you are looking for something different, look no further!
