The ultimate secret. The ultimate agent. The president's vampire.
'There are worse things in this world than al-Qaeda and North Korea, Zach. And they are just waiting for their chance at us.'
Sharp and ambitious, Zach Barrows is on his way up. But when he gets a call from the White House, it's not quite the promotion he expected. Zach is to be the new political liaison officer to America's best kept secret:
Nathaniel Cade. The President's vampire.
And Cade is the world's only hope against a horrifying new terrorist threat advancing from the Middle East. The fight is deadlier than ever, and time is running out . . .
If Dan Brown wrote a vampire thriller, this would be it - Mitch Horowitz
It's genius. It's sheer, bloody genius. - Lavie Tidhar, author of Osama
Anyone worried that the vampire novel is stuck in a soppy Twilight rut will be relieved by screenwriter Farnsworth's hilariously over-conceived debut. The set-up alone is a joy . . . Cade is a wonderful creation - all the more satisfying for being not the usual fey aristocrat but a brutal and often charmless "apex predator". Slick, fast-moving fun for the beach. - Guardian
Terrific . . . Written with enormous gusto and flair, Cade seems destined to become a hero the world will find hard to forget - Daily Mail
BLOOD OATH is exactly how I like my Presidential thrillers. With vampires. - Brad Meltzer
Witty, exciting, and compulsively readable, with a central character who seems destined to become a favourite of both sceptics and true blood believers, this may just be the best debut vampire novel in many years. - John Connolly
A political-thriller concept with bite - LA Times
A super cool read . . . Blood Oath is fascinating and entertaining, and adds new blood to the current vampire craze - Bookbitch.com
