Last American Vampire Review

The Last American Vampire - Seth Grahame-Smith

I was very lucky to receive a copy of this book from the publisher through the Goodreads Giveaway section in exchange for my honest review.  Which I will strive to give without fangirling too much over Henry Sturges.


To no surprise at all I loved this book.  Last American Vampire is the sequel to Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter and this one is all about Henry Sturges.  Personally I think that's all anyone needs to know in order to read it.  I read it over a course of a week because I knew there was a very good chance there will not be a third book any time soon, or if at all.


Last American Vampire finally gives us the story behind the vampire that created the greatest vampire hunter alive, and what a life it was.  This book was everything I have come to love about Seth Grahame-Smith's writing: gory, fast paced, funny, and with all the feels in the world.  There were parts where I laughed out loud, parts that turned me a bit green, and a few where my heart ached for Henry.  A few times I had to put the book down and walk away because I wasn't expecting what happened.  The ending was very similar to the Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter tied up, open ended with the promise there was another story waiting to be told.  Hands down Henry is one of favorite vampire characters.


I have to say I think this is going to be one of my favorites of 2015, and is probably my favorite from Seth Grahame-Smith.  Maybe tied with Unholy Night.  If you want a book on a badass vampire with a twist on our history, then I recommend this book.  In fact if you just like vampire books in general, read it.  Henry is worth it.  Do it!
