    Description

    Audie Award Nominee, Best Thriller/Suspense Category, 2013

    The presidential campaign trail, 2012: A political operative and a volunteer are brutally murdered while caught in a compromising position. Written in their blood on the wall of the crime scene: IT'S GOOD TO BE BACK.

    And with that, a centuries-old horror known only as the Boogeyman returns to taunt Nathaniel Cade, the president's vampire. Against the backdrop of the 2012 presidential race, with the threat of constant exposure by the media, Cade and Zach must stop the one monster Cade has never been able to defeat completely. And they must do it before the Boogeyman adds another victim to his long and bloody list: the President of the United States himself.

    Wow he does it again!

    Would you listen to Red, White, and Blood again? Why?

    I already have two times. It's just that great!

    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    The plot of this book seems really linear at the start but after 20 mins or so you enter a rollercoaster of plot twists and red herrings that leave you guessing about with will happen next.

    Have you listened to any of Bronson Pinchot’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes but only in the first two of The president's vampire books. I feel he does a great job at catching the character of each person in the book and passes this on to the listener in the nuances he uses.

    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    To Be Continued.

    Any additional comments?

    If you liked the first or second book even a little you will love this one.

    Fave Audible book - bloody great fun!

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I'm recommending this widely because I enjoyed it so much. Bronson Pinchot's a WONDERFULLY talented narrator; one of the best. He brings Farnsworth's characters vividly to life -- and the writing, the dialog, is FUN. The plot is fast-moving and extremely well-written. You'll be surprised by the sturdy and strong craftsmanship of the novel -- plot twists galore; surprises, page-turning tension, nicely drawn characters... I just loved it.

    What other book might you compare Red, White, and Blood to and why?

    I've read all three of Chris Farnsworth's Nathaniel Cade books. He's got a goldmine of a series here -- the characters are fresh and the concept innovative. It's sort of like finding the best new fusion cuisine before the rest of the crowd. In terms of surprises and pace and just plain reading (and listening) delight, I'd compare it to Mira Grant's FEED series. (FYI, those are AWESOME on Audible.) Not the same subject matter, but honestly nothing can wreck a great book like a bad narrator -- like with Grant's books, the President's Vampire series has secured a top-notch narrator who "gets it" -- who understands the sheer listening pleasure of a voice that can bring characters to life.

    Which scene was your favorite?

    Oh, man! The LAST SCENE was such a twist, I was stunned -- and now I'm cursing the publishing gods that make new books take for-ev-er to be released. That's all I'm sayin' -- just get to the end. Wow. (And don't you DARE flip to the back - no peeking.) No Spoiler Alert -- just... wow. I totally didn't see THAT coming!

    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    They've already nailed it -- thanks Putnam. Check the YouTube trailer.

    Any additional comments?

    This is the author's third book. I'm rooting for this guy! He is a TALENTED writer -- and I'm a really picky reader and listener. When you're reviewing for an Audible.com title, you're considering a partnership: does the narrator bring the book to life, or does he just slog through it? I HATE when books I enjoy are destroyed by bad narration. Pinchot rocks it, and makes Farnsworth's work play beautifully on the giant screen in your mind.

    This is Cinematic with a Capital C. It will make a fabulous film. I generally don't "gush" about books, but this one -- actually this whole series -- just hit me with sheer delight. Even if you'd never think of reading a "vampire book" -- at least check out the promo bit for this; you'll be surprised. It's such a neat tweak to interweave vampire lore with modern-day politics, and it just plain works. But overall, it's just plain and simply great writing. This is fun, fast-paced craftsmanship.

    Makes politics fun

    What did you love best about Red, White, and Blood?

    What a great series. Makes the day of sewing go by quickly, but makes interruptions really, really annoying!

    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Listened at work, in the car, at the grocery store, went home and listened to it instead of watching tv.

    Any additional comments?

    When they make the movie, Jim Caviezel should play Cade!

    I want more!!

    This is a vampire series (3 books). You don???t have a doe-eyed female saying bite my neck or a Clan of vampires trying to integrate into society or take over the vamp world. What you do have is a reluctant vampire; he made one mistake and has to attone for it for the rest of eternality
    Cane is bounded by a pledged but also believes in fighting for the values of Unites States of America. Cane goes out (with his sidekick Zach) to fight the monsters so you and I can sleep monster free. As a matter of fact, he is sooo good we don???t even know there are monsters. So we have got espionage, vamps, politics, the values of ???Red, White and Blue??? (our flag) and a vampire who does not understand 21st century colloquialisms.

    You get the usual Cane stuff, machinations within the oval office to get rid of Cane. Just like the Joker always comes back to get his revenge upon Batman. Cane has his own nemesis who is stabbing at his heart with a pointy stick.

    Look Out for the Boogyman!

    Bronson Pinchot provides another stellar performance in the third book of the President's Vampire series. The story is engaging but the lives of the "hero" and his sidekick are getting so dark it's depressing. A magical oath seems to be the only reason Cade doesn't greet the dawn. While for Zach, he gets to look forward to an empty, lonely, life performing a thankless service for a majority of people who consider him a loser. The last guy who had Zach's job left him all his worldly possessions which seemed to consist of an empty house, half a bottle of good whisky, and a really nice recliner. He hasn't moved in because he doesn't want to accept his life will be as empty as Griffin's, who, as Cade tells him, "used prostitutes for his urges." Patriotism is a powerful motivation but it can't be the only positive thing in Zach's life for the next 30+ years.

    I was interested Christopher Farnworth's spin of vampires in the first two books but now it's more like the spin on A vampire, Cade. The only other vampire in the series, Tanya, is only mentioned in that she can't be found. Other vampires have never been explored even though they apparently have some sort of social organization. They have shunned Cade because he refuses to drink human blood plus vampires don't socialize with cattle. I guess its a good thing there haven't been more vampires in his stories. The way Christopher Farnworth describes his vampires, they kill a human everytime they feed and human blood makes them much stronger than Cade on his pig's blood diet.I know these stories don't take place in the "real" world and I know different worlds have different rules but this story is violating its own rules. Cade wonders if he will have to kill Tanya for killing humans but he wonders if he will be able to kill her because she drinks human blood so she should be stronger than him. We already know she has more abilities (she can shape change and fly)Unless there are no vampires in the US, I can't understand why Cade is still around. The vampires kill everytime they feed so he should have been sent out after them and, since they're stronger from the human blood, they should have kicked Cade's butt.

    This was a promising series at the start but unless there is a major change I won't continue to follow it. I will definately wait for reviews before purchasing the next book

    Meh

    This book was considerably better than book 2 but it still fell short from the 1st book. Bronson Pinchot is one of my favorite narrators so I consider anything he has been hired to read is worth buying. In this book Cade is fighting The Boogeyman who is an evil spirit that possess different bodies throughout history. Now the bodies that have been possessed are just regular human bodies that the evil spirit has made faster and stronger but can be killed....eventually. A bad person from book 1 has been brought back into the story even though this person was believed to have been killed in book 1 and devises a plot to have The Boogeyman "rip out the President's heart." The entire book is about Cade trying to find the Boogeyman and stop him once again. The book ends with a cliff hanger and since it's been 9 years from the date Book 3 was released to now, I find it disappointing that a book 4 hasn't been released to Audible. I would recommend reading the entire series but so far books 2 and 3 have been a let down from book 1.

    Author RUINED the trilogy

    With this books ending I wish I had never read the series. I mean really? That is the best you got?

    Decent, but probably my last of this series

    I started with this series because I love Bronson Pinchot and will listen to just about anything he narrates. However, after three books, I think I'm probably done with this series.

    My biggest problem is the character inconsistency. Cade is supposed to be super intelligent, thinking so quickly that mere mortal thoughts and reactions are like slow motion to him. Yet he consistently falls for obvious tricks, and fails to take even the most basic of precautions. It's hard, maybe impossible, to write characters that are smarter than you, but it doesn't have to be this bad.

    Can't Wait for Book Number Four

    I'm selective about my vampire reading because I don't like the new stuff that's popular today, so I was thrilled to find this series.

    Blood Oath and The President's Vampire were very good, but Christopher Farnsworth really outdid himself with Red, White, and Blood.

    I never talk to my books, but I found myself talking to Cade a couple of times, "yes, you can ... what's wrong with you ... do it".

    The first thing out of my mouth when I heard the ending was, WHAT?! and I proceeded to scan the internet to see if there is any sign when book number four will be released.

    I'm loving this series!

    A great series, the "Dexter" of Vampires

    Would you consider the audio edition of Red, White, and Blood to be better than the print version?

    The narration by Bronson Pinchot is outstanding, I had to go back and look if it was THAT Bronson Pinchot. He makes an already mesmerizing story Ultra-mesmerizing

    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Nathaniel Cade, he is a GOOD vampire, what else do you need to know?

    What does Bronson Pinchot bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    His pacing is perfect, he distinguishes each character without tricks, he is the voice that anyone would want for their own internal narrator if they were reading it themselves

    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The ending, in the epilogue (not giving that away)

    Any additional comments?

    Bronson Pinchot should narrate of every other audible book, okay, maybe that is overdoing it, but he should take turns with John Lee, Pete Bradbury and Ron Perlman. The Nathaniel Cade series is not the typical "Twilight" spawned romantic vampire drivel being churned out for pubescent goth girls. This is a story with intelligence that you can sink your teeth into.
