Library Journal Review

After the defeat of the Confederacy and Lincoln's subsequent assassination, Henry -Sturges, who recruited Lincoln into the internal conflict among vampires, tries to recover and move forward with his life. Still devoted to the Union and serving his country, Sturges tracks the involvement of A. Grander VIII, the mysterious villain who has declared, "No more Americans." Grander's determination to destroy the United States draws Sturges into some notable historical events, including the Jack the Ripper murders, World War I and II, the fall of the Hindenberg, the attacks on the Twin Towers, and many others. Macleod Andrews performs excellently as narrator. VERDICT Well written, witty, and at times downright hilarious, this is a fun and heady listen, particularly for history buffs. ["Grahame-Smith's fans, as well as anyone willing to try alternate history, will enjoy this sweeping adventure": LJ Xpress Reviews 12/19/14 review of the Grand Central hc.]-Jeremy Bright, Georgia State Univ.
