The President's Vampire by Christopher FarnsworthPosted on the 27 May 2011 by Librarygirl @LibraryGirlRead
The President's Vampire is the second installment in a series from Christopher Farnsworth featuring Nathanial Cade, the vampire of the title, and his human partner Zach Barrows. This time the unlikely pair faces an outbreak that threatens the whole of humanity. Old enemies return and new ones pop up in unexpected places.
The President's Vampire is another intense cross between political thriller and horror story. Farnsworth's characters use science in ways that are almost too scary to contemplate making the threat in the book seem almost a realistic possibility.
It did take me several chapters to settle into the story but I experienced the same thing with Blood Oath and knew the main story would be worth taking the time to regain my bearings in this world. Changing time periods and locations allows Farnsworth to present information that would not otherwise be available to Zach and Cade but that will help fill in the big picture for the reader.
Although he still makes rookie mistakes, Zach is finally starting to really grow into his role as liaison between Cade and the President. Cade shows a bit more personality in this book as well.
The President's Vampire is another solid hit from Farnsworth. My only question is "When does the third book come out?"
I received an advance copy of The President's Vampire from both Goodreads and LibraryThing in exchange for providing my honest review.
