Overview

The ultimate secret. The ultimate agent. Nathaniel Cade returns.

For 140 years, Nathaniel Cade has been the President's Vampire, sworn to protect and serve his country. 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 only dream of.

When a new outbreak of an ancient evil-one that he has seen before- comes to light, Cade 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 centuries-old predator can.

Editorial Reviews

We'll skip the clichés about wanting to sink your teeth into a delectable read. Christopher Farnsworth's The President's Vampire is a standalone sequel to The Blood Oath that stands on its own. Its main character, Nathaniel Cade, is a bloodsucker with a most impressive secret White House resume. He has been serving and protecting U.S. presidents since the administration of Andrew Johnson. In those 140 years, this sharp fanged covert agent has thwarted plots both natural and supernatural, but his latest case could be one of his biggest challenges.

Mr Farnsworth as done it again! If you haven't read the first book, it isn't needed, however I would! CF does a great job of keeping up my interest in Cade and he's created some new bad guys unlike anything we've really seen before. Keep writing CF and I'll keep buying!

I have to admit it; I look for certain authors whose books I've enjoyed reading before. Christopher Farnsworth has only two books available (on Nook anyway) but I will look for his name again. I guess much of what causes someone to purchase a book written by a 'previously read' author has to do with what the author has written and how he (or she) has written it. The stories could stand some more 'plot' and 'character' development but they are not quite 'one dimentional'. The action is fast paced and there are 'historical backstories' thrown in periodically to fill out some of the nuances that help explain the character of a 140 year old vampire that both hates himself and feels compelled to serve and protect his country.

This was a very quick read, entertaining from the first to last page. It is not necessary to read Blood Oath before this book, but you will enjoy this one much more if you do. My only gripe is with the length...way too short. Can't wait for the next one, hopefully with a story line of Cade dealing with a King Vampire!

Seven score ago, Nathaniel Cade came out of the "coffin" to offer his services as the President's Vampire. He made a Blood Oath and since has been the top secret super agent for numerous White Houses president's since. His current human handler Zach Barrows is amazed at what Cade can do. Plausible evidence implies that the notorious Shadow Company has gotten inside military contractors. Cade assisted by Barrow is assigned to work with Colonel Graves and military contractor Archer Andrews to determine the validity and if affirmed cleanse the issue. The Feds follow the paper and money trails while Cade goes out into the cold where he fights the Snakehead intelligent lizards. However, Cade soon realizes that an ancient evil he has fought before has come back for a return engagement, which makes even the vampire to reconsider his Blood Oath. Convergence in a horrific lab with the inability to reach back to the White House due to official channel interference may prove deadly to the vamp and his handler. Starting with a stunning kill in November 2001, fans will be hooked by this exhilarating thriller that makes a vampire, and human and monstrous terrorists seem real. Fast-paced and loaded with action, the story line never allows a respite as even President Curtiss needs two cigarettes. Urban fantasy fans will relish what is turning into one of the best series the sub-genre has to offer. Harriet Klausner

Love this series. Cool mix of sci fi, supernatural, spy adventures, villians and heros. Always looking forward to the next one.

About as good as the first in the series, but brought down by padding. The story is interesting. I enjoyed the relationship that seems to have developed between the two main characters since we last saw them. The threat they're facing is definitely worse than what they faced previously, although I'm thinking their reproduction rate is so quick that if they had existed for as long as it's been suggested, the world should have ended before the first book started. The padding in the climax really hurts the book. The big one is cannon fodder villains. There are five or six characters that are introduced in the climax. And this is the character arc of those characters: Intro of what the character was doing: Bob was in a room. Brief background of the character: Bob was a soldier in the army. Brief description of why the character worked for the evil organization: Bob liked to push small children out into traffic, so evil organization thought he'd be a good crossing guard. Character notices plot point: Bob heard a siren before the power went out. Character dies: Bob gets ripped apart by rampaging horde of monsters. Add to that the fact that chapters in the climax are very short, so we get more of the world-building-not-always-related-to-the-current-story chapter intro blurbs. We also get a small diagram of the secret military installation. After a while, it just really felt like the author was trying to get his page count up.

This is not your normal romantic vampire book. It is more a combination mystery thriller with a vampire character in it. I have read them all and I did like them, but wished the books went deeper into Cabe's character. His thinking and thoughts. In some ways he is just a tool and the author seems to treat him that way. Very Interesting Story Line Though.

Most urban fantasy falls into easy categories privite eye, cop, romance what has been misding is a good politcal technothriller ala flynn or cussler this series fills that void and does it well
