Summary: Nathaniel Cade is the President’s vampire and Zach is his handler, they are the only ones that can keep the United States unaware of the supernatural beings that are roaming the earth. In this Nathaniel Cade novel they go up against the boogeyman. This monster comes back and never seems to be able to be defeated. This time the boogeyman goes after the one person that Nathaniel Cade has to protect, the President, during the very important 2012 presidential race.
Review: This is the best Nathaniel Cade novel yet. If you have yet to read this series you should give it a try. It is a different kind of vampire novel and one that shouldn't be passed up if you like books with supernatural aspects in it. Don’t expect a lot of romance, but there are a lot of awesome fight scenes.
This novel does have some typical vampire quirks in it, but there is more to it than what meets the eye. I think that the core of this novel is the relationship between Nathaniel and Zach. Their back and forth conversation is entertaining and always lightens the mood in this dark series. Nathaniel barely talks and Zach always has a sarcastic comment to make. They make a really good team, one worth reading about.
At times this book gets a little crazy and hard to believe. On the other hand, sometimes I truly believe that there is a vampire protecting the President, and when a book can get you to believe it could actually happen in real life, even though it can’t, I believe that makes it a pretty good book. This book did a lot better at this than the last one. The last one got a little too crazy at times. I know what you may be thinking, that this book is about the boogeyman, a non-scary monster that children are afraid of. Well, this boogeyman is totally different. He will make you cringe. There are some very heart-stopping plot twisting moments that will keep you on the edge of your seat.
For some reason I can’t find any more words to explain/review this book. Just take a chance and enjoy. Who wouldn't want to read about a vampire that will do anything to protect the President?
