URBAN FANTASY THRILLER REVIEW: The President's Vampire - Christopher Farnsworth

Release Date: 07/07/11


The Ultimate Secret. The Ultimate Agent. Nathaniel Cade returns.For 140 years, Nathaniel Cade has been the President's Vampire, sworn by a blood oath to protect the President and America from their supernatural enemies. Cade's existence is the most closely guarded of White House secrets: a superhuman covert agent who is the last line of defense against nightmare scenarios that ordinary citizens can only dream of.When a new outbreak of an ancient evil - one that Cade has seen before - comes to light, he and his human handler, Zach Barrows, must track down its source. To 'protect and serve' often means settling old scores and confronting new betrayals . . . as only a century-old predator can.


Having read the first book in the series last year I was curious to see what Christopher would come up with next. After all with Frankenstein Monsters attacking the White House, it was going to have to be something spectacular to match up to the high octane thrill of the original.

So when I started this title I wondered how the characters would have progressed, after all it was a new relationship for the two lead characters and when you add in that its set a year later, you know that it had to have evolved further as a vampires work is never done.

As with the original it was fast paced, the characters fun and when you add “Lizard Men” to the equation it was a title that was a joy to behold. Also throw into the mix the shadowy organisation in the background trying to thwart out heroes and it was a book that really didn’t let up from the first to the last page. Great fun all in.
