Audio Book Giveaway: Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter by Seth Grahame-Smith (Ends 5/16) CLOSED

Sunday, May 02, 2010 Posted by Dina N

Book Description
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.

    Would love to hear or read this book. I have seen it on the shelves and have been tempted to buy it several times but afraid I would be disappointed. I love any books that run along the lines of paranormal. Right now I am reading the series by JR Ward.

    I am reading the True Blood Series right now, and while I wish there was a "PG" version, I do enjoy the storyline and characters.

    I LOVE reading and always look forward to the summer (I am a teacher) so I can have more time to read.

    I'm trying to remember, but I've been medically housebound with two toddlers for 7 months and can't remember the last book I've read! That's why I want to win this giveaway - we're no longer homebound and I just joined a gym with childcare and have nothing to listen to while working out!
