Christmas Book Giveaway Hop: Win Unholy Night by Seth Grahame-Smith

Welcome to my stop on the Christmas Giveaway Hop hosted by I Am A Reader, Not A Writer, and Laurie Here!
Because I love doing the weird stuff, I'm here with a giveaway for a more alternative Christmas story, so to say. Yep, it's a giveaway for a copy of Unholy Night by Seth Grahame-Smith, the author of Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter's latest novel that gives a different take on the Three Wise Men tale. I loved it, but for some of you that are more firm in your beliefs, this book might not be for you. So take a look, then decide whether you want it or not. Merry Christmas!

From the author of the New York Times bestselling Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, comes UNHOLY NIGHT, the next evolution in dark historical revisionism.

They're an iconic part of history's most celebrated birth. But what do we really know about the Three Kings of the Nativity, besides the fact that they followed a star to Bethlehem bearing strange gifts? The Bible has little to say about this enigmatic trio. But leave it to Seth Grahame-Smith, the brilliant and twisted mind behind Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunterand Pride and Prejudice and Zombies to take a little mystery, bend a little history, and weave an epic tale.

In Grahame-Smith's telling, the so-called "Three Wise Men" are infamous thieves, led by the dark, murderous Balthazar. After a daring escape from Herod's prison, they stumble upon the famous manger and its newborn king. The last thing Balthazar needs is to be slowed down by young Joseph, Mary and their infant. But when Herod's men begin to slaughter the first born in Judea, he has no choice but to help them escape to Egypt.

It's the beginning of an adventure that will see them fight the last magical creatures of the Old Testament; cross paths with biblical figures like Pontius Pilate and John the Baptist; and finally deliver them to Egypt. It may just be the greatest story never told.
Look like your cup of tea? Great! Enter after the page break!
