Mr. Abraham Lincoln. Yes, Honest Abe himself was indeed a vampire hunter, and a dang good one at that. You should grab yourself a copy of this book, and take a peek at his amazing skills. Oh and once his story concludes, you will be amazed at his surprise he has in store for you :)
Growing up poor, with his father and mother, young Abraham is clueless to the existence of vampires. Until his mother falls ill of milk sickness.
His Father becomes extremely guilt ridden. In a drunken stupor decides to tell his young son that vampires are real. And that his mother isn't dying of any milk sickness, but because he fell short on a deal he made with a vampire years ago.
Angry, and heart broken, Abraham's father lures the vampire that killed his wife to the family home and slays him, thus beginning young Abraham's fascination with the hunting.
His rise in the political world only helped to further his hunting abilities and his killing grounds. Helping him rid the entire continent of vampires, good and evil. Even though he knew the difference.
