Blood Oath by Christopher Farnsworth
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Want a vampire who doesn't attend high school in Forks, Washington? Or become romantically entangled with Southern women? Or give interviews in New Orleans? Want a vampire who's mainly a killing machine? May I introduce you to Nathanial Cade, the President's vampire?
For well over a century Cade has been bound to the will of the President of the United States, fighting for the safety of our nation against the forces of the Other Side. These forces take a lot of shapes, and the book makes references to monsters throughout history. If fish-headed men from Innsmouth make you think of H.P. Lovecraft, then this is the book for you. But even if they don't, this could STILL be the book for you.
It's gruesome, it's creepy, and it's action-packed.
Perfect book for a spooky October night.
