Publisher's Summary

The ultimate secret. The ultimate agent. The President's vampire. Zach Barrows is an ambitious young White House staffer whose career takes an unexpected turn when he's partnered with Nathaniel Cade, a secret agent sworn to protect the President. But Cade is no ordinary civil servant. Bound by a special blood oath, he is a vampire. Cade battles nightmares before they can break into the daylight world of the American dream, enemies far stranger-and far more dangerous-than civilians have ever imagined. Blood Oath is the first in a series of novels featuring Nathaniel Cade-the President's vampire.

    Excellent vampire book and the best part is that it's the first in a series. Another original plot and well written. Pinchot does a good job too.

    "Fabulous summer read"

    I had been through a couple of really bad books right after I finished The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest (which I loved). I decided on this one as a lark and I am impressed. You won't be sorry. I do love a good vampire story that plays like a movie in my head.

    Story
    "Hellboy fans - an occult gov't agency tale!"

    If you like the premise of the graphic novel / film Hellboy, I think you'll like this novel. There are macabre forces at work in the world. Most have unfriendly intentions toward human-kind. And the United States government has secret assets to counter them. This is the story of a vampire pledged to serve the office of the president since the days of Lincoln.

    "Great spin on supernatural world"

    This has broaded the vampire genre with its political action. Where most vampire novels are romantic in idea.
    Definitely recommend this to supernatural and vampire fans.

    The narrator was ok at first, it took me a bit to get use to him. Overall the narrator and author did superb.

    Hope there are more to come.

    "Kind of like those 1950's crime dramas..."

    I found the book a treat to listen to. Well written, nicely read and a total "bubble-gum for the mind" experience. So much about vamps is all dark and goth, where this is much more about the redemption thing. Think "Forever Knight" or "Angel" sort of situation. I recommend it for a nice reading get-away.

    "Great Listen"

    I loved this story. Blood Oath kept my interest. Novel had great mix of characters and Bronson Pinchot is a wonderful reader. I cannot wait for the next book to release. No doubt this series is going to be fun.

    "Pretty good"

    I was pleasantly surprised by how good this book was, although some of the side characters grated on my nerves. The action was well done and not frivolously bloody, and the main character is interesting.
    I hope that if there is another book, the author will flesh out the characters more and give a little more subtlety to the characters.
