Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter Review

So faithful readers, I just finished reading Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, the upcoming novel by Seth Grahame-Smith (the author of the famed Pride and Prejudice and Zombies). Before I get into all the fun-filled review details let me just say that this book is hands down the best I have read this year. You’re hooked now aren’t you? Ha.

Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter is about… Abraham Lincoln, obviously. The story follows our beloved president throughout his life – a life full of death, chaos and sinister vampires. The hidden history behind the Civil War is revealed and we learn just how big a role vampires played in American History.

Seth is an excellent story-teller that mixes fact and fiction so perfectly that it sounds absolutely believable. There were quite a few times while reading the novel that I started to think that it was a true recount of actual events – that’s how good Seth is. Honestly, I’m not even fully convinced that it’s not true. Hmmm.

Ok, my insanity aside, the author most definitely put a hell of a lot of research into this book. It’s incredible how many little facts and details have been included, I am genuinely amazed at how well it all blended together. I also loved the other historical figures spread throughout the story and their involvement with the vampires. Especially Edgar Allan Poe – the conversations with Lincoln and Poe about vampires are ridiculously entertaining, I loved it.

Overall, I thought the novel was fantastic. I will admit I was a bit disappointed by the ending. Don’t get me wrong, the ending was by no means bad, but after such an intense and dramatic story from the beginning I expected an even bigger ending. I guess I’m just needy.

Either way Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter is a dark, spine-tingling and highly entertaining ride – I totally recommend picking it up March 2, 2010 OR if you want to get it for free enter our contest for your chance to win a copy.
