Goodreads Synopsis.

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

History buffs and historical fiction nerds will adore.

But that’s the wonderful thing about being a vampire. Our hope of Heaven is revoked the moment we’re made. Every subsequent sin is a teardrop in the ocean.”

This is the follow up novel to Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. While I had a lot of fun with that novel, this one was even more of a historical thrill ride. Here, we follow Henry Sturges after the death of his friend Lincoln as he trots through important points in history. Beginning with his landing in the New World before he was made, up until the early 2000s.

From the true story behind the disappearance of the people of Roanoke, to encounters with Jack the Ripper while hanging out with Brom Stoker and Arthur Conan Doyle, to hunting Rasputin and trying to take down Hitler. These are but bullet points in the life and adventures of Henry Sturges. True patriotic American hero. The oldest vampire in America. Will he ever stop fighting for his country? America should hope not.

While Henry Sturges is a fun character, it was Grahame-Smith’s ability to bring historical characters back to life with care and charisma that really made this book.
