Blood Oath

Blood Oath - Christopher Farnsworth With all the fluff, cutesy, sweet romance vampires out there it's nice to see authors like Christopher Farnsworth writing a vampire novel you can really sink your teeth into. This book has it all: action, mystery, secret agents, scary vampires, damsels in distress (Well, sort of), villains that would do any James Bond movie proud, even a new sidekick. Nathaniel Cade is a scary man, of course he's not a man at all but a vampire and not just any vampire but the Presidents Vampire.. He is our last line of defense against all of the things that go bump in the night. Sworn to a blood oath over a century ago Mr. Cade protects our country from not only terrorists and other man made evils but also the horrors that must remain invisible to the common man.

I had a great time with this book. It was action packed and was a very fast read. The book had a nice flow and doesn't ever get bogged down in pointless details or fluff to extend the pages. I've seen some reviewers saying it read's more like a movie and maybe it's because Mr. Farnsworth write screenplay's but I think his writing fits his characters perfectly. Mr. Cade is not a deep person (at least on the outside). He doesn't bemoan his situation, doesn't sit and whine oh why me, poor me. He only does one thing and he does it well but at the same time I feel that we haven't even scratched the surface with him and belive Mr. Farnsworth has left so much more of his past for later. This was a great debut novel. It's very James Bond meets ... well Vampires. The villians are top notch. They are mean, ruthless yet at no time do they feel fake or too over the top. There are so many things going on with the villians and shadowy organizations that you just know you'll be hearing more from them in the future. The action sequences are good and you get these brief looks into Mr. Cade's mind here and there. I for one can't wait to read more. The next book is already in the mail.
