Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter
- Издательство:Grand Central Publishing
In a one-room cabin nine-year-old Abraham Lincoln kneels at his mother's bedside.
"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 him, he vows to devote his life to a single purpose. Gifted with his legendary height, strength, and skill with an ax, young Lincoln 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 the Union and freeing millions of slaves, his valiant fight against the forces of the undead has remained in the shadows for almost two hundred years-until Seth Grahame-Smith stumbled upon The Secret Journal of Abraham Lincoln.
Now, using the journal as a guide and writing in the grand biographical style of Doris Kearns Goodwin and David McCullough, Seth reconstructs the true life story of America's greatest president.
For the first time ever, he reveals the hidden history behind the Civil War-and uncovers the role vampires played in the birth, growth, and near-death of the nation. Обо всём этом и не только в книге Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter (Seth Grahame-Smith)
