The President's Vampire

For 140 years, Nathaniel Cade has been the President's Vampire, sworn to protect and serve his country. Cade's existence is the most closely guarded of White House secrets: a superhuman covert agent who is the last line of defense against nightmare scenarios that ordinary citizens only dream of.

When a new outbreak of an ancient evil-one that he has seen before- comes to light, Cade and his human handler, Zach Barrows, must track down its source. To "protect and serve" often means settling old scores and confronting new betrayals . . . as only a centuries-old predator can.-Goodreads

Rating: 4 stars

This is the second book in the series and an interesting premise, take a vampire and make him a tool of the White House. It's fun to see how normal Washington politicians deal when there is a vampire in the room. As you would think since this series takes place in present time, Nathaniel does occasionally fight terrorists (Osama Bin Laden makes an appearance in the first chapter), but most of the book is spent trying to stop the "ancient evil one" and find out who is controlling it.

The only complaint I have is Zach and Nathaniel were separated for a while so I missed their banter back and forth. One of the funniest scenes is when Nathaniel uses some out of date slang and Zach calls him out on it.

I would say that if you still enjoy the occasional vampire book or maybe some politics, give this series a go. The third one just came out last week. (Perfect timing!)
