This is the 4th book in the Fred, the Vampire Accountant series and let me say that Fred is just as exciting as he was in the first book. Well, let me clarify. Fred is an accountant who is also a vampire. How exciting can the world of an accountant be? Let me tell you, Fred is unique in his boringness in the afterlife. He is calm, personable, and loyal to his friends in every story. He is a good human being and an abnormal vampire, which makes his story worth listening to.
This is a set of stories in the life of Fred that build one upon the next with the ever-growing cast of paranormal characters we have learned to love over the previous 3 books. This time, we get a closer look at the worlds of Neil and Albert, a great Richard and Gideon story, a look into the world of mages with Amy, and finally get to spend some time with Arch. It is great to spend some time with each of these side characters as it builds on the world of Fred.
Having just finished the book, the one person we really didn't get to spend any time with this book is Crystal. Crystal is an amazing character but getting involved with the other characters made me not miss her too much. It isn't until the end that I remembered that I hadn't seen much of one of the best girlfriends ever.
If I had to sell Drew Hayes to you on only one characteristic of all his work it would be his character development, which once again is front and center in this incredible work. Kirby is back for this fourth rendition and nails it once again as the narrator. If you enjoyed, or even suffered through, the Bill the Vampire series, you will love the more mature telling of a similar story that is much more fun and complex than that story. Friendship between the characters is strong and I couldn't help growing in my friendship with this ragtag group of paranormal Americans. It will be a long year until I get to catch up with my friends once again.

Loved this book but - I’m getting a bit tired of how short they are for the money.
Narrator was excellent but sometimes slipped between characters by accident.
The story was good but I felt started a bit too quickly from the last, as if it was two books cut up to make money, which I don’t like.
Still want more but...
