The President's Vampire by Christopher Farnsworth

Book 2 in the Nathaniel Cade Series

I loved the first book.  I was intrigued by the idea of someone who was forcibly turned vampire hating what he was so much that he had himself bound to do the will of the President of the United States.  The second book, however, was a bit disappointing.  I am much more interested in Cade and his relationships and what makes him tick, than I am the action.  This book was mostly action and actually very little about Cade.  On top of that, the book skipped around with little flashes of information then switching scenes and more little flashes.   Each chapter was fairly short and there was always info. to read at the top the chapter before you could get back to the story.  I HATE THAT!  I hate having to stop what I'm reading and read a poem or some other such thing.  It requires a shift in thinking away from the story and most of the time it isn't always obvious how the snippet relates to story.  Then I have to stop and think about it which it something I usually don't want to take the time to do.  If I skip it, I always feel guilty.  If I read it I'm always annoyed.
