From Goodreads: Zach Barrows is an ambitious young White House staffer whose career takes an unexpected turn when he’s partnered with Nathaniel Cade, a secret agent sworn to protect the President. But Cade is no ordinary civil servant. Bound 140 years ago by a special blood oath, Nathaniel Cade is a vampire. He battles nightmares before they can break into the daylight world of the American dream, enemies far stranger – and far more dangeorus – than civilians have ever imagined.Blood Oath is the first in a series of novels featuring Nathaniel Cade, the President’s vampire.
Purchased: I won this book in a give-away
What I Loved: Zach and Cade were to me, like Chloe/Jack were when they started working together on the show 24. It was fun to watch them work out their working relationship, especially with all the intense situations that they were thrown in too. I really loved the character of Griff–he added that extra buffer as Zach/Cade got to know each other. This was just a fun, thrilling, fast-paced, topsy-turvy ride that kept me hooked from beginning to end.
What I Liked: The story was really good at keeping you on your toes. Though you clearly knew who the bad guys were, you weren’t entirely sure how the whole thing was going to play out. I also liked that the end was not entirely predictable and that they story played out in a way that screams sequel.
Complaints: None really–I quite enjoyed the book.
Why I gave it a 5: It is rare when I give a book a 5 but this was one of those books that I enjoyed far more than I expected too. It was well-written, unique, and fun.
Who I would recommend it too: I don’t think this book will appeal to everyone but it has the following elements: espionage, spy elements, vampires, werewolves, zombies, and action. I would label this as a PNT (Paranormal Thriller) which means any number of groups might enjoy it.
