When a new outbreak of an ancient evil--one that Cade has seen before--comes to light, Cade and his human handler, Zach Barrows, must track down its source.

Osama bin Laden as a naga? Really?

This sucked so bad I gave up after the first chapter. It wasn't even good for a laugh.

I didn't realize it was the second of a series until I started to post it here.

I'm agog. ( )

Interesting concept and decently-written. The last half of the book especially is quite engrossing and I was compelled to keep listening to it. Not, however, for the faint of heart--there's lots of graphic violence. Not overdone, but very visceral. The titular vampire is a fascinating character and I do feel I'd like to read the first book in the series now. If you like a mix of supernatural/politics/military and thriller, you'd probably enjoy this book very much. ( )

I was feeling really lonely and sad after my boyfriend broke up with me, so I picked this up because I knew it would be full of action and not romance. I loved the first one in the series, and this one was a quick, fun read too. Lots of gore and weird creatures, plus the awesome vampire. Also, while I was reading, I felt almost normal again, and that's a pretty major compliment, since when I wasn't reading I was spending my time crying buckets. ( )

Blood Oath, the first book featuring vampire Nathaniel Cade was so good I had to pick up the second one. The President's Vampire takes place months after Blood Oath and Zach Barrows, Cade's handler, has had plenty of time to get used to his new job. I didn't love Zach in the first book but he's so much more interesting in this one. In fact, in many parts of the book Zach almost outshines Cade. In this new adventure Cade and Zach are up against a virus that's turning humans into serpent-like creatures that are killing machines. Unstopped, they'll destroy most, if not all of mankind.

The President's Vampire provides shocking twists and is filled with non-stop action. If you liked the first book in this series, you will certainly like this one. I'm not a fan of vampire novels but I do enjoy a good political thriller and this is both. I wouldn't recommend reading them out of order since the character development is part of the plot. Now I'm off to get the third one...Red, White and Blood.

As with the previous book in the series, Blood Oath, I quite liked this book. As a matter of fact it’s a great book. The only reason it’s not getting another star is that this political betrayal stuff is not my favourite topic. Sure it’s bit biased but hey I’m not a professional reviewer so you should expect it to reflect me. At least I have a reflection…the last time I looked.

Anyway, the book continues from where the previous one left off with Zack as the “political liaison” to the presidents vampire, Nathaniel Cade. A new, actually fairly old, enemy has arisen and it’s of course up to our favourite vampire to deal with this “little”” issue threatening all of humanity.

Well, there is a third book published already so I don’t think I’m spoiling anything by saying that Zack and Cade saves the day…again. They even get the bad guy in the end which is something I quite like in my books. Cade is his usual “likable” guy and the little conversations between Cade and Zach are as enjoyable as in the first book. The same goes for the rather one-sided conversations between the bad guys and Cade.

The action is plentiful as usual but a fair amount of it done as flashbacks which I’m not too thrilled about and is another reason this book is not getting another star.

Bottom line though is that it’s a very enjoyable book and I found it a nice detour from my usual Science Fiction reading.
