Description

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.

From Publishers Weekly

Nov 03, 2014 – Grahame-Smith follows 2010's Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter with another often fun, occasionally frustrating secret history. Lincoln's companion Henry Sturges once lived in Roanoke, and was turned into a vampire after most of the colonists (including his pregnant wife) were slaughtered. Shortly after Lincoln's assassination, Sturges is drawn into political intrigue when a mysterious European vampire named Grander seems to declare war on the U.S. vampires. As Sturges investigates Grander over the years, he encounters celebrities on both sides of the Atlantic, including Arthur Conan Doyle, Teddy Roosevelt, and John D. Rockefeller. Grahame-Smith clearly has fun mixing vampire mythology and politics into some well-researched history, and readers will forgive the occasional overused trope or bit of excessive cinematic theatricality, as when Sturges blows smoke through the nostrils of a decapitated head. There are some nice twists one spoiled by the previous book, unfortunately and fans of supernatural fights and gory killings will find plenty to enjoy.

Amazing Anticipation

I haven't anticipated something this much since my wedding night!

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.

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!
