URBAN FANTASY REVIEW: Blood Oath - Christopher Farnsworth

Release Date: 08/07/10


'There are worse things in this world than al-Qaeda and North Korea, Zach. And they are just waiting for their chance at us.' Sharp and ambitious, Zach Barrows is on his way up. But when he gets a call from the White House, it's not quite the promotion he expected. Zach is to be the new political liaison officer to America's best kept secret: Nathaniel Cade. The President's vampire. And Cade is the world's only hope against a horrifying new terrorist threat advancing from the Middle East. The fight is deadlier than ever, and time is running out ...


Vamps have wormed their way into all levels of society within the genre, so its always going to be interesting when they work their way up to the secret agent level. It has been done successfully by author’s such as Jennifer Rardin but if you want something a little more different, more of a spy thriller in the (pardon the pun) vein of Bourne, then this is perhaps the title for you. It’s got some great twists, its got some great characters and above all else its got some great witty one liners. Back that up with a whole host of characters that the reader will just love to hang out with, some pretty great descriptive analogies and finish it up with a touch of Hellboy and you know that its something a bit special.
