Publisher's Summary

With a thriving parahuman accounting practice, a steady relationship, and a circle of trusted friends, Fred's undead life has become more enjoyable than his normal one ever was. Unfortunately it also seems that he's no longer the only vampire to appreciate the up-and-coming city of Winslow, Colorado. A new clan of vampires is moving in, and they aren't well known for tolerating outsiders in their territory.

Now Fred must cope with the growing presence - and threat - of other vampires even as he struggles to keep up with his business' demands and make time for his friends. Between hidden parahuman towns, crazed vampire hunters, quarreling mages, and the world's least subtle spy, it will take all of Fred's wiles just to keep his head above water. And as the new clan sinks their fangs deeper and deeper into his city, the undead accountant is faced with a choice between two equally unappealing options: flee his home or stand against an entire clan of fellow vampires.

    "how to make boring in to fun"

    this book and ita prequels are all great. the only down side is that its only the third book. the story of Fred needs more books and it would be fun to know more about the extended universe this book exist in. also the narator is perfect for this bool. 5 stars all around.

    "God I Love This Series"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Bloody Acquisitions to be better than the print version?

    Yes.


    What other book might you compare Bloody Acquisitions to and why?

    Indexing by Seanan McGuire. They both have a season-of-a-series-rather-than-a-book-feel.


    What does Kirby Heyborne bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He is able to bring the characters to life in a way that the print version is just not able to.<br/><br/>In movies their are the "safe characters" the kind that are simple yet very fascinating that most actors can play and almost no can say they did a bad job. Then their are actors who can take the stupidest, blandest and/or boring character/s and make the most enjoyable character/s of the entire movie. And finally you have those rare times when one of those great actors portrays one of those "safe characters" and you get one of most compelling performances of all time.<br/><br/>This is the audible equivalent of those kind of performances.


    Any additional comments?

    I have said before and I'll say it again. This is one of my favorite series of all time. I really can't say anymore than buy it, you won't regret it.

    "!Love Fred. Need more"

    I still enjoy this series. You should read this in order to appreciate the relationships. Loyalty and Friendship are the themes of this series and theme in this book. There is some action, I mean there are vampires and assorted other paranormals. In books one and two you will can get a demonstration of the various powers. This book will not give you that exposure. As Fred goes around returning clients’ tax documents you get glimpses into paranormal action/powers for different species.

    There are rules and processes to vampires moving into new territory. Unfortunately, his friends cannot do much to help with his dilemma. If you have followed the series, you know that Fred will not ask his friends to put themselves in a compromising position.
    The real conflict is, should Fred stay in Winslow where everyone he has come to know and love reside or will he have to run? Fred is not a physically active person. He prefers to solve problems amicably. Fred is an oddity. Vampires rule by imitation. If you are familiar with the series you know it is engrossing to watch Fred be Fred. I enjoyed this book. As a matter of fact, I am going to reread book two. I missed a character’s/entity’s story somewhere down the line. This is an easy enjoyable read, which does not disappoint.

    "Yet another amazing score!"
    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I really love Krystal a lot; her go-getter no bull attitude really resonates with me and my personality. She helps the evolution of Fred into a more engrossed and interesting character.


    Any additional comments?

    I had read a lot of other comments on here so I was a little mixed on what I was getting into. The story is still segmented but less disconnected than previous books. It flows very well and I was completely in love with almost every character in Fred's friendship circle.

    "Terrific"

    The writing tells the story, and keeps the plot going, while the narrator is part of story.

    Just plain excellent.

    "Amazing!"

    I'm not sure what I expected when I began listening to this series, but I am hooked! It's smart, witty, and engaging. The narrator is stellar as Fred and I can't wait to hear what's next..... hopefully soon!

    "Funny quirky and lively"

    I absolutely loved the story. All the old characters are back with a few new surprises. Everytime I think I can perfect what happens next I'm surprised. Mr. Hayes challenges preconceived notions and dumps cliches on their heads. I'd recommend this to anyone who loves vamps, humor, and surprises.
    The narrator was brilliant for this book. One of the marks of a good narrator is when I could tell which character is speaking before the book announces it. the voices in the book are unique and fit their characters really well. Mr. Heyborn was engaging and on point with his narrations allowing the reader to fully engage.
    overall a brilliant story brilliantly narrated! I simply can't wait till the next book is narrated!!

    "This series just gets better and better!y"

    I have read all three of this series - all that are available on Audible (the fourth installment is available now on Kindle). This last one was the best so far and I can't wait for the fourth audiobook to be released. Fred is a great, relatable character. The narrator really brings him to life (to the extent possible with a vampire). When I started listening to this series it was mainly for the novelty of learning about a vampire accountant. I work in a Big Four accounting firm with many tax accountants, and some of the jokes were the kind of great gallows humor that resonates with anyone that has ever lived through a tax busy season. But, to my surprise, the series is far from the one joke premise that originally drew me to it. At its core, this series is about a team of misfits that, together, are so much more than the sum of their parts. The characters are fun and endearing. I found that I missed them when the books ended...which is just what I am looking for in a series like this. Fans of the Harry Dresden books will likely enjoy Fred and his friends.

    "One of the Best"

    Fresh and entertaining; an exciting addition to the series and genre. Once again, Drew Hayes creates a refreshing take on the supernatural fiction story by letting you get a good look at the standard tropes before completely throwing them out the window.
    Much like a Sherlock Holmes novel, this book is composed of a series of interconnected vignettes concerning the life of Fred, an accountant made into a vampire that is still an accountant. This is the 3rd book in the series, flawlessly builds on Fred's previous encounters while progressing his story and character in unexpected but still logical directions. The humor in this book is still spot on, though overall the tone of the book is slightly more serious than other installments.
    Once again, the audio performance of this book is one of the best I have encountered in the medium. Clearly read and well performed with excellent sound quality.
