Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter Giveaway

Seth Grahame-Smith's Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter is coming to the big screen this month and as we all know it's better to read the book before you see the film, I have five copies of the paperback to giveaway! Thanks to Corsair for providing the prizes.

UK ONLY

Indiana, 1818. 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 axe, 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 Union 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.

  4. I liked the book. So much better than his zombiefied Jane Austen. I probably won't be going to theaters to see the film, but I definitely plan on renting it once it hits video.
