Abraham Lincoln was only nine years old when his mother died. It is later, however, he learns the true cause of her passing. He swears from that day, to kill all vampires.I read this because the movie will be released soon and I like to read the book before I see the movie. The storyline is definitely unique and interesting. At first it is hard to imagine Abe as a vampire hunter, but as the book progresses, you can see it very clearly and in a way, it sort of suits him. It also kind of makes wonder you, what if Abe was really a vampire hunter? That would change history, that's for sure.All in all, it was an entertaining and creative read. I'm looking forward to the movie.
