Vampire Henry Sturges returns in the highly anticipated sequel to Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter-a sweeping, alternate history of twentieth-century America by New York Times bestselling author Seth Grahame-Smith.
THE LAST AMERICAN VAMPIRE
In Reconstruction-era America, vampire Henry Sturges is searching for renewed purpose in the wake of his friend Abraham Lincoln's shocking death. It will be an expansive journey that first sends him to England for an unexpected encounter with Jack the Ripper, then to New York City for the birth of a new American century, the dawn of the electric era of Tesla and Edison, and the blazing disaster of the 1937 Hindenburg crash.
Along the way, Henry goes on the road in a Kerouac-influenced trip as Seth Grahame-Smith ingeniously weaves vampire history through Russia's October Revolution, the First and Second World Wars, and the JFK assassination. The final, elegiac act ends in 2001 with the vampire species in steep decline, and a world-weary Henry retreating from civilization to an upstate New York mansion.
Expansive in scope and serious in execution, THE LAST AMERICAN VAMPIRE is sure to appeal to the passionate readers who made Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter a runaway success.

A little lengthy....
And a little all over the place. But, it was a great read. I love horror & I love history, so this was fantastic.
Absolutely LOVED IT!!!
I love this book! It so well written I could see all the characters and events vividly in my mind! The twists and turns were awesome! Now I'm going to buy the hardcover to keep in my home!
Vampire Forest Gump
I loved Lincoln Vampire Hunter, not for the gore but the careful intertwining of history with alt fiction so outlandish yet fitting. By contrast this book is slapdash. A parade of shallow famous encounters that blur into monotony without any continuity or historical context. Would much have preferred an entire book on WW1 or WW2 or the Cold War, or civil rights, or 911 or really any of the famous characters. Highly recommend the 1st book. Your mileage may vary here.
