Blood Oath by Christopher Farnsworth

Genre: Fiction

Pages: Hard Cover

Publisher: Penguin

Blood Oath is not your typical vampire novel. Zach Barrows is a 25 year old up and coming White House Aid with his eyes set on being the youngest ever White House Chief of Staff. What he didn’t anticipate, no matter how much you plan in politics, namely your career, can change in an instant. One second Zach’s star is on the rise and he is both cocky and confident, the next, he is being reassigned to what he thinks is a position beneath his political status.

Imagine a branch of Government that has no Congressional oversight, no acronym, and only answers to whoever sits in the office of the President of the United States. Imagine that same branch of government with only one main asset and his handler. Now imagine that asset is a vampire who has sworn servitude for the last 140 years to ensure the survival of the United States of America from all forces seen and unseen-natural and unnatural.

Blood Oath takes political espionage and adds a flare of supernatural to the story that will sure to please any horror or action reader. Some parts are confusing, but the overall plot is refreshing and face-paced. If you are a vampire buff, this will be a fun read. If you are a Tom Clancy fan, you will enjoy. If you are neither, you will still enjoy.
