Book Description


See all titles by Christopher Farnsworth.

This action-filled debut by scriptwriter Farnsworth reads like a cross between P.N. Elrod's historical vampire adventures and Thomas Greanias's conspiracy thrillers.

Nathaniel Cade is a 160-year-old vampire who swore to fight on the side of President Andrew Jackson and all his successors. In this gripping series starter, the Commander-in-Chief's very own blood sucker has secrets of his own that extend far beyond national security.

In the present day, Zach Barrows, a rising political star caught canoodling with the president's daughter, suddenly finds himself training to be Cade's handler after tough, wise special agent William Griffin retires. As they try to stop Cade's old nemesis, Dr. Johann Konrad, from creating an army of Frankenstein's monster soldiers, they uncover a deeper government conspiracy.

Christopher Farnsworth's taut thriller is an irresistible page-turner, complex and unnervingly realistic. The supernatural elements here are dazzlingly clever. With its labyrinthine plot and byzantine layers of government deceit, Blood Oath is a 21st-century riff on themes explored in such classics from America's first Paranoid Age as The Manchurian Candidate and Invasion of the Body Snatchers.
