Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter – Book Review

by Seth Grahame-Smith

Abraham Lincoln’s long lost journals have been discovered/acquired by Seth Grahame-Smith – lucky man.  What is revealed in the journals is incredible and offers a chance to understand why the amazing Abraham Lincoln was so truly great. 

The American people are oblivious to what their beloved president really did to secure their freedom.  Abraham Lincoln’s United States was fractured and while north and south fought each other they were ignorant of the real enemy threatening them all… vampires.  Few knew of the existence of vampires walking amongst them but Abraham was one of those few.  He had known from a very young age and had lived his whole life in pursuit of them. 

Abraham’s career in vampire hunting had a shaky start   He had a near fatal encounter with a particularly vicious vampire who prayed on children.   Abraham’s saviour had a wealth of knowledge  and taught him much about vampires and how to hunt them them.  From that moment an alliance was formed and Abraham had help in tracking the most dangerous vampires.  Abraham was fighting a war for the American people long before he entered the white house.

Another fun read by Seth Grahame-Smith.  I find the idea of matching classic literature or iconic characters with gothic or horror themes very entertaining.  I know that it can draw a lot of criticism but quite simply I LIKE IT.   It’s just a bit of fun and does it’s bit for promoting the ‘originals’.  I admit to googling madly after finishing the book because I was hungry for more on the amazing life of the real  Abraham Lincoln.
