Great characters, tight, fast-moving plot-- a bloody fun read!

It's an election year. Once you hit the inevitable point in the near future when you just cannot face one more left-or-right-leaning piece of political commentary, THIS is the book to grab. I mean, who WOULDN'T enjoy reading about a monster who targets political hacks with... hacks?

Generally I don't go for vampire genre books because they tend to be poorly written and too formulaic to be exciting. This series rocks it, though. (Red, White and Blood is book 3; the first two novels were excellent as well.) In vampire Nathaniel Cade and his handler Zach Barrows, Farnsworth has created characters as cool and well-matched as Holmes & Watson or Spock and Kirk.

The WRITING is what I loved: the dialog was snappy and fun and the plot had nonstop hairpin turns that were beautifully crafted. And by overlaying this construct of a vampire who is bound by oath to serve and protect the president onto the 2012 campaign trail... well, it just WORKS. Really really well.

Fast pace. Unique and well-formed characters. Fun and surprisingly twisty plot. Backstage on the campaign trail. AND WITH A VAMPIRE -- trust me, it works!

(BTW, I have zero connection to the author. I simply think he is a talented guy and I had fun reading his books.)

Read the first book in the public library. Had a good storyline. Good characters and plenty of action. Enjoyed it though it was quite different from what I usually read. Bought the second book as soon as it came out. I was a little disappointed in it. Didn't feel it was up to the first. Pre-ordered the third, and was sorely disappointed in it. Too much blood, gut, and sex and not enough of a good story to keep my interest. Read about 1/3 of the book and gave it away.

    It wasnt as good as the other two in my opinion but it was still pretty gripping and a solid page turner.
