Charlaine Harris says ‘Blood Oath’ thriller but not a vampire novel August 22, 2010

OK — so I guess I’d go with that on some level. But I still see Cade as my next vamp hero. Charlaine Harris — author of the Sookie Stackhouse novels — that have drawn in even more fans with the True Blood HBO series by Alan Ball — met BLOOD OATH author Chris Farnsworth at ComicCon (they were on a panel) and she got a copy of his book. Here’s what she had to say after reading it:

His premise is so logical (at least, to my mind) that it’s amazing no one thought of it before. For many decades, the president of the United States has had a vampire at his disposal. Nathaniel Cade, sworn to a Blood Oath, must obey the orders of the president or his representative. At the beginning of the book, Nathaniel’s breaking in a new minder, kind of his daytime guy. Zach is more than a little deplorable, but he eventually proves his worth. This is a clever thriller that I’d never actually call a vampire novel.

Which makes me wonder — just what the heck do people call vamp novels now? I think the genre has morphed into a zillion directions. My hubby thinks the whole vamp craze is unwinding now. Ummmm — not so fast. There are still lots of new books and movies coming out. As long as they’re good, I’ll go see a supernatural flick or read a book any time. And we haven’t even touched on the YA market — which is really big on the fae and ghosts and teen angst. (Kind of my faves right now. Good summer reading.)
