Blood Oath by Christopher Farnsworth

Posted on the 20 May 2011 by Librarygirl @LibraryGirlRead
Blood Oath
Blood Oath introduces Zach Barrows, young political hotshot, to Nathanial Cade, the vampire working for the United States Government. Zach is suddenly immersed in a world he never knew existed where the things of horror stories come to life. It is now his job to work with Cade, ensuring the safety of the United States while preventing its citizens from stumbling onto the truth.
Blood Oath combines elements of political thrillers (which I do not normally read) with elements of horror and fantasy. The result is a book that is completely compelling while defying description. Blood Oath is intense from the first page to the last, although the constantly shifting beginning chapters took a little while to settle into the main storyline.
Christopher Farnsworth does a great job at providing background information on the characters while keeping the present storyline moving along at a fast pace. The characters' histories have a direct tie in with the threat to the White House and how all the pieces eventually fall into place.
Farnsworth also uses politics and science to make this book scarily realistic. The conspiracy angle is intriguing and offers a lot of material for future books in the series.
Overall Blood Oath was a great first installment and this series is now on my 'must read' list.
I borrowed this book from my local library and there was no expectation of a review.
