The President's Vampire Will Be At Our Colfax Store Tonight!!!

The President's Vampire
(we stole the above off of Chris Farnsworth's website, where he admits this is a "shameless shill", but wants you to buy the book anyway.) (BTC says check out the website--there is all kinds of fun going on there!)

The ultimate secret. The ultimate agent. Nathaniel Cade returns.

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.

Come to our Colfax Avenue store TONIGHT at 7:30 pm to meet Chris Farnsworth and learn more about Cade and his new adventure. 

Jackie says:
"The President's Vampire is the second book in a very entertaining series of the same name.  There premise: the Office of the President has had a secret weapon for the past 140ish years--there is a vampire, named Nathanial Cade,  who has been sworn (in a voodoo sort of unbreakable way) to obey any and all orders by the President.  Farnsworth has a sly humor and a vivid, cinematic imagination that makes these books tons of fun to read.  His exhaustive research on conspiracy theories and X-file sorts of stories comes to play over and over again--there is never a dull moment on any page.  My particular favorite this time around is the story of how Bin Laden "actually" died (Farnsworth's got amazing timing to his story telling too!).  This time around Cade is dealing with mad scientists manipulating DNA in an attempt to wipe out humankind and create a new being that is better adapted to the upcoming changes facing our planet.  There's plenty of action with Somali pirates and the military--it's more than a bit graphic in places, but has no shortage of laughs either.  And no, the last thing Cade would EVER do is sparkle--he's NOT your teenager's vampire at all."
