The Presidential Campaign Trail, 2012:
A political operative and a volunteer are brutally murdered while caught in a compromising position. Written in their blood on the wall of the crime scene: IT’S GOOD TO BE BACK.
And with that, a century-old horror known only as the Boogeyman returns to taunt Nathaniel Cade, the President’s Vampire. Against the backdrop of the 2012 presidential race, with the threat of constant exposure by the media, Cade and Zach must stop the one monster Cade has never been able to defeat completely. And they must do it before the Boogeyman adds another victim to his long and bloody list: the President of the United States himself.

First thought when finished: I am a total Cade and Zach fangirl!
What I Loved: Zach and Cade are probably one of my favorite duos in Fiction. They have a great chemistry that seems to grow with each installment! In Red, White, and Blood the chemistry shines through and Zach is totally coming into his own. I was excited that “not saying” was back because “not saying” is a great foil. Also the scene between Zach and “not saying” towards the end was just brilliant. Also the epilogue was FANTASTIC—Cade to Zach “What has your britches in a bunch”? –their little conversation was just great and an example of how far they have come since book 1!
How great is the final part of the epilogue–that was freaking brilliant! Well played!
What I Liked: The Political side of Red, White, and Blood is done very well and Christopher Farnsworth manages to weave in some great satire. While I am usually not a fan of political thrillers, this one was done in a way that was both entertaining and at times *giggle* worthy. The online reporter was just a fantastic addition to the story!
Audio Specific Review: Y’all Bronson Pinchot did a FANTASTIC job! This is a series that I will be switching over to audio from this point out. I read the first two but pretty much loved Bronson’s narration. The only reason that he did not get a 5 is because of the women voices which took some getting used too. 90% of this book is male voices so it was only a little distracting.
Final Thought: Seriously y’all need to read this series. It is just fantastic!
