I had a great time with this book. It was action packed and was a very fast read. The book had a nice flow and doesn't ever get bogged down in pointless details or fluff to extend the pages. I've seen some reviewers saying it read's more like a movie and maybe it's because Mr. Farnsworth write screenplay's but I think his writing fits his characters perfectly. Mr. Cade is not a deep person (at least on the outside). He doesn't bemoan his situation, doesn't sit and whine oh why me, poor me. He only does one thing and he does it well but at the same time I feel that we haven't even scratched the surface with him and belive Mr. Farnsworth has left so much more of his past for later. This was a great debut novel. It's very James Bond meets ... well Vampires. The villians are top notch. They are mean, ruthless yet at no time do they feel fake or too over the top. There are so many things going on with the villians and shadowy organizations that you just know you'll be hearing more from them in the future. The action sequences are good and you get these brief looks into Mr. Cade's mind here and there. I for one can't wait to read more. The next book is already in the mail.
This was my second read of this book but I enjoyed the action as well as I did the first time. i as other readers want to see more novels about Nathaniel Cade.
Another feature I liked is his quotations from other sources at the beginning of each chapter or section. Some of them described Cade in a succinct, matter-of-fact way (if you can call it that!), while other quotes contributed new information, both about Cade and other subjects.
Farnsworth writes in a fluid, easy to read method that lets you see the action and people he describes--quite an accomplishment, given this genre!
I highly recommend this book to anyone wanted a new slant on a classic horror story.
Do you like vampires? I like vampires.
Do you like brooding, teenagerish, depressed vampires who fall in love with dull high school girls who talk poorly? I hate those vampires.
Do you want a vampire who is really a vampire - a killing machine; but one who must work to support the President of the United States in his battle against the evil forces being unleashed in the world? Yes, indeed.
Then you will love these two books. Farnsworth has created a vampire for the ages in Nathaniel Cade, a cold-blooded killer but one who must fight on our side.
These are fast-paced, rollicking adventures of the President's vampire as he and his "handler" Zach battle to save the world from evil.
Hop on and come along for the ride!
