    While Abraham Lincoln is widely lauded for saving a Union and freeing millions of slaves, his valiant fight against the forces of the undead has remained in the shadows for hundreds of years. That is, until Seth Grahame-Smith stumbled upon The Secret Journal of Abraham Lincoln, and became the first living person to lay eyes on it in more than 140 years.

    Story

    It is a very well written book. I am not a history buff, but I ended up learning quiet a bit about Abraham Lincoln's life that book supposedly is very accurate (other than the vampire stuff). It would be a good way to get someone into history as well.

    That aside, I found myself absorbed into the book, and I really felt for the characters. Use of language is also very enjoyable that one would believe that Abraham Lincoln would probably speak in such fashion. I felt for his loss, his triumphed and his struggles.

    Vampire fiction does not overshadow the book, but it is there just enough to keep things entertaining.

    Narrator did a great job and kept it very entertaining.

    I highly recommend this book.

    Bahzell Bahnakson of the Horse Stealer hradani had never wanted to be the champion of the War God. Unfortunately, the War God had insisted. Which was how he had found himself among hostile strangers in the Empire of the Axe - except that that was only the least of his problems. For a start, there was the Order of Tomanak, who were horrified that their deity had chosen a hradani as champion, and were resolved to rectify the matter in a most unpleasant fashion.

    Story

    Once I started the first book, I ended up getting the second immediately, and I am planning on getting the third book soon. Like this first book it is also a fast paced book.

    It is very enjoyable audio book that style of narration matches with the story very well, and over all it is a lot of fun to listen to this book.

    Our barbarian Paladin is introduced officially to the rest of its deity's order, and things become interesting. Book has a very good narrative about the prejudices and bigotry though sometimes it is repetitive.

    Couple of characters introduced in book are amusing and sense of humor does work within this book as well. It is pretty much a continuation of first book without any breaks and I recommend this book as well that these books are solid 4 star books. Very enjoyable.
