Description: The ultimate secret. The ultimate agent. Nathaniel Cade returns.
For 140 years, Nathaniel Cade has been the President's Vampire, sworn to protect and serve his country. Cade's existence is the most closely guarded of White House secrets: a superhuman covert agent who is the last line of defense against nightmare scenarios that ordinary citizens only dream of.
When a new outbreak of an ancient evil-one that he has seen before- comes to light, Cade and his human handler, Zach Barrows, must track down its source. To "protect and serve" often means settling old scores and confronting new betrayals . . . as only a centuries-old predator can.
My Thoughts: A political thriller meets a paranormal story in THE PRESIDENT'S VAMPIRE. Nathaniel Cade has been sworn to protect the country as the President's vampire for 140 years. He is the most secret of secret agents. His handler is Zach Barrows who had a very promising political future and job in the West Wing before he was drafted into service with Cade.
In this episode, the second in the series, Cade and Zach are tracking down a conspiracy which intends to turn humans into lizard people and bring about a new world order. I liked that flashbacks to earlier in Cade's history. I liked the relationship between Cade and Zach which lets each of them play on their strengths.
The story was fast-paced, exciting and bloody. Fans of thrillers and the paranormal will enjoy this story.
It had all the hallmarks of a good compromise: it didn't look like it was going to make anyone happy.I bought this one. You can buy your copy here.
