Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter Seth Grahame-Smith read online review & book description:

Indiana. Moonlight falls through the dense woods that surround a one-room cabin, where a nine-year-old Abraham Lincoln kneels at his suffering mother's bedside. She's been stricken with something the old-timers call "Milk Sickness."

"My baby boy..." she whispers before dying.

Only later will the grieving Abe learn that his mother's fatal affliction was actually the work of a vampire.

When the truth becomes known to young Lincoln, he writes in his journal, "henceforth my life shall be one of rigorous study and devotion. I shall become a master of mind and body. And this mastery shall have but one purpose..." Gifted with his legendary height, strength, and skill with an ax, Abe sets out on a path of vengeance that will lead him all the way to the White House.

While Abraham Lincoln is widely lauded for saving a and freeing millions of slaves, his valiant fight against the forces of the undead has remained in the shadows for hundreds of years. That is, until Seth Grahame-Smith stumbled upon The Secret Journal of Abraham Lincoln, and became the first living person to lay eyes on it in more than 140 years.

Using the journal as his guide and writing in the grand biographical style of Doris Kearns Goodwin and David McCullough, Seth has reconstructed the true life story of our greatest president for the first time-all while revealing the hidden history behind the Civil War and uncovering the role vampires played in the birth, growth, and near-death of our nation.

  • A great YA read

    Grahame's weave of reality and myth make for an exciting ride. I think every middle school age child/student should read this novel. Its tapestry of "what ifs" beg young scholars to quest for "truth" and explore the majesty of "everyday" life. By far my favorite feature is its timelessness: one lifetime, one person, or one moment rippling through the ages. The butterfly effect illustrated by tangible characters, events, and conflict. My question is will Mr. Grahame expound on the tale he eludes to when he describes another failed vampire take over between 1939-1945? Would really love to see that idea fleshed out. 🙏😊

    This book is a must-read for any fan of alternative history. The vividness of Seth Grahame-Smith's writing made me think twice about what really happened and what didn't. It was a pleasant surprise.

    I am a bit of a history buff and Lincoln was a Great President. I also enjoy enjoy some sci-fi stories so this book sounded great. From the first page to the lastI could not put it down. The weaving of his life with the concept of why he has so much sadness in it was a great concept. Shared the book with others who enjoyed it as much as I did.
  • Wow!

    I wasn't sure what to expect. This book is an incredible blending of history with some tweaking to add vampires.
