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!

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

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.

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.

Luke Daniels is a narrative legend

The only complaint I could possibly give would be that I wish it was longer. I guess it just makes what is there all the more rich. Great storyline, there's no unnecessary details, it's easy to understand what's going on, and its just overall a nice, action packed adventure.

Luke did a fantastic job narrating. His voice fits Alec's character beautifully. He gives every character has their own unique voice that is immediately recognizable giving them even more life. I didn't think he could do much better than the first book, but I was pleasantly surprised. I'm eagerly looking forward to the next book.

Quick, fun monster hunting adventure

I finished the first book in this series in a single sitting. So it was natural to promptly pick up this one as well, hoping for the best. I was not disappointed. Brian McClellan and Luke Daniels are a great team, delivering a solid adventure that doesn’t take itself too seriously, but is still well written. Alec even has some depth, and Maggie is a delight yet again. I look forward to more in this series.

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 great listen

Really nice story, love he world building and the characters.

I was super excited to hear Luke Daniels here, but couldn't help but hear Ada in Oberon's voice... I am super sorry but this takes away any scary factor Ada has in the book, i mean its i keep hearing "You will respect my authori-tah!" every time Ada speaks. It is super funny but as i said takes away from the character.

Luke Daniels is really good, every time he reads something he gives so much more depth to the characters, but this one was a bit below his usual best.

The sorry itself is really good, world building extraordinary and the world itself is fascinating. Can't wait to get the next one and see how Alek deals with his contract or with his new plastic knee.

I want the next one right now!

This book is so much fun! I loved the first Valkyrie Collections book which introduced Alek the reaper. This second book is even more fun than the first. I snickered and laughed out loud multiple times. Eddie absolutely steals the show and you can’t help but root for Alek and Olivia. I’ve only listened to these two books by Brian McClellan but now I’m considering trying more of his work. Narrator Luke Daniels is a professional who never turns in a poor performance. He nails the voices and I love the fact he throws so much emotion and action into the story rather than just reading it. This was a great break from reality and I will be waiting most impatiently for the next installment of Valkyrie Collections.
