ABRAHAM LINCOLN, VAMPIRE HUNTER AUDIO BOOK: GIVEAWAY

GIVEAWAY ENDED
ABRAHAM LINCOLN:
VAMPIRE HUNTER

AUDIO BOOK
BY SETH GRAHAME-SMITH
READ BY SCOTT HOLST

ABOUT THE BOOK:

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 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 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.

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.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:


Seth Grahame-Smith is a film and television writer/producer, semi-frequent blogger, and bestselling author. His first novel, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, debuted at #3 on the New York Times bestseller list. Since its release in April 2009, it's sold over a million copies and been translated into 20 languages. Seth is also the Co-Creator/Executive Producer of the upcoming MTV comedy series, "The Hard Times of RJ Berger." He lives in Los Angeles with his wife and son.

I can't wait to read "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."
My type of "historical" fiction.

I love that it mixes real history with science fiction. I have never seen this before. I like that it is based on the real history of someone as famous as Abe Lincoln.

+1 - While it is not likely that I'll be reading Lincoln's biography by Doris Kearns Goodwin, there is a likelihood that I would read this imaginative fictionalization of the man. And I didn't hate Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, so Seth Grahame-Smith might wind up doing a good job here.


+1 - I retweeted this giveaway. You can find a link here.

+1 - I am a follower of this blog via Blogger. It should show up in my blogroll.

When I was in high school I did a paper on Lincoln. I never came across any mention of vampires. I would love a chance to win.

I love these mash-ups, and combine a real life historial figure with the vampire thing is fascinating - some people have such wonderful imaginations. :)

I'd love to be entered into this one. The premise being about one of our president's sounds intriguing.
