Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
The thrilling sequel to 2010's Blood Oath gets off to an uneasy start as even Lovecraftian monsters pale in the context of human terrorism and war. Nathaniel Cade, the titular vampire, and his assistant, Zach Barrows, are assigned to work with the mysterious Col. Graves and megaprofitable military contractor Archer/Andrews to investigate possible infiltration by the infamous Shadow Company. While Barrows and the other data agents look for a paper trail, Cade takes to the field, where he embarks in a series of gory battles against the rapidly evolving intelligent lizards called Snakeheads. Events build to a cinematic showdown in a secret lab, interspersed with scenes from Cade's secret past. The conclusion will leave the reader breathless and wondering what horrors the future holds.

Library Journal
Nathaniel Cade is one of the undead, a secret weapon in the arsenal of the president of the United States in the war against monsters of the Other Side. It's the present day, and savage reptilian beasts cooked up in the laboratory of a supersecret agency are wreaking havoc. The bite of one creature turns a human into a mindless, killing nightmare. Fortunately, Cade's superhuman strength and cunning have enabled him to destroy these monsters, but he now faces an entire army. There are plenty of chills and thrills as Cade and his mortal pal/handler Zach Barrows attempt to outwit and outmaneuver the devious mind behind this diabolical plan. The plot is so intricate that sometimes it's hard to tell who the good guys are—except for Zach and Cade, of course. VERDICT Readers who enjoy adventure with a compelling cast of characters will enjoy this clever, witty sequel to Blood Oath.—Patricia Altner, Biblioinfo.com, Columbia, MD
