Editorial Reviews

Review

"High-octane supernatural thriller… Farnsworth keeps the twists and explosive violence coming, keeping readers in suspense until the very last page."
Publishers Weekly


"Simply fun… Farnsworth’s strongest book yet …I’m envious. Cade continues to be one of modern literature’s most frightening vampires, and this is an excellent read."
— Charlaine Harris, #1 New York Times–Bestselling author of Dead Reckoning

I almost didn't bother with this - I loved the first one in the series, but the second was an utter mess. But I was advised that this was back to form and worth the effort...

Cade is a vampire that has been operating in the service of US Presidents for generations under a blood oath. He is no friendly vampire but a deadly creature in the employ of the US, he's a great character working in an interesting context.

In the previous book, the author lost what was good about his character and went for a story that was too big and silly, here he goes back to basics. The bad guy is The Boogeyman, an immortal bad guy that re-appears in various guises to cause havoc via serial killings. The backdrop is a Presedential election, but there are clever asides about what creates the Boogeyman and elements of society that support evil.

Delighted to see the author and character back on form.

Nathaniel Cade returns for the third instalment of The President's Vampire series, and just keeps getting badder.

Whether first time reader, or fan of the books, Red White and Blood will blow you away. This time around Farnsworth explores serial killers, as Cade battles a particularly nasty Bogeyman who is a hell of a lot worse than a child-scaring closet-hidden goon, and a few familiar baddies from early books.

Farnsworth delivers an expected high level of action and horror, along with bearable doses of political intrigue. Red White and Blood also introduces us to a little more of Zach's history, and pulls Cade's character in some scary directions too.

All that coupled with some killer twists, makes Red White a Blood a must read, in fact just writing this review right now, is making me thing about how long we're going to have to wait for the next book in the series - Too Long!

OK... this is my third Chris Farnsworth book and I'm getting sick and tired of saying the same damn things over and over and over again. "This book is awesome". "This book is a bloody-thriller". "This book is great storytelling". "Case is one bad, shut yo' mouth". So since I can't say that, I need something else...

How about... "this series is so good that I will bribe, kill, murder, and steal to get an early copy". No? How about... "Reading about Cade is worth the one year gap this lazy author takes between books"? Too insulting? How about... "The mix of vampire folklore and real American history is better than the mix that created Zoe Saldana"? Too cheesy? OK, OK, OK... one more... "the serial killer in this book is a man... (oops, sorry Cade) an IT after my own heart"? However you take it, however you read it, one thing is for certain... YOU WILL READ IT!

I often wonder what goes on in the minds of writers. That being said I'm 100% sure that I do not want to know that "special place" Chris goes to get his ideas. The time honored joke for guys (including this one here) is "if I have to die I'd want to die while having sex". I think my mind might have changed slightly after reading `Red, White, and Blood'. (But only slightly mind you). Being between the pages of a book is good, the other is still much, much, much better!

N-E Way... in this third book in this `President's Vampire' series we find Cade battling a creature that he can't seem to beat. Not only is this his current nightmare, but was also the nightmare of almost everyone of us as child. The Boogeyman. But even back in the day I don't think our Boogeyman was nearly as sinister as this Boogeyman.

Christopher Farnsworth has created one of the most novel and fascinating characters in today's world of fiction. Nathaniel Cade is a vampire who has been bound by blood oath to protect the Presidency of the United States which he has done for almost a century and a half. "Red, White, And Blood" is the third outing of this enigmatic antihero and is a good place to get on board for any of those who have not yet discovered this wildly original series which is marked by strong writing, tight plotting, and violence in an intriguing blend of history and fantasy.

In "Red, White, And Blood", Cade faces off with an ancient foe, the Boogeyman, a serial killer who Cade has often battles and "killed" over the years but who is periodically reborn due to the human blood sacrifices from deranged cult members. The boogeyman has returned and is focused on influencing the current presidential election and hopefully, killing the President and/or his family. This time, The Boogeyman, is operating a little smarter and a little more deviously because he has secret support from an old nemesis of Cade's who makes a surprising return.

Farnsworth skillfully blends the elements of a political procedural built around an election campaign with a suspenseful high speed thriller based around destroying a centuries old monster. Along the way, Cade and his handler, Zach Burrows, face new and old foes and entanglements such as Candace, the President's daughter, the VP of the US, the Shadow conspiracy, a big mouthed journalist more focused on her career than the truth, and other assorted odd characters running the President's campaign.

Placing a centuries old vampire into the middle of a presidential election campaign with all its "spins", lies, intrigue, leaks, etc.
