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’s 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.


I didn't think I would be able to fall more in love with Fred but I have.  I can't say enough about this series, its funny captivating and a new twist on paranormal creatures.  Fred is a vampire but he isn't obsessed with power like most vampires, however he does have quite a few very powerful friends. Rumours are spreading about a unique vampire who has the ear of a dragon, and has alliances with one of the top mages in the country and the head of the shapeshifter pack.  However Fred is still Fred, mild mannered, sweater vest wearing vampire accountant.  When a new vampire clan moves into the town of Winslow Fred needs to figure out how to protect himself, should he run, join another clan or try to play down who he is and see if the other vampires will just leave him alone.  Of course nothing turns out as planned and Fred once again finds himself using his wits to save himself and his friends.
