Unholy Night

Seth Grahme-Smith creates another masterpiece while mixing history and fantasy into an interesting smash hit!   His first attempt at this genre combination was taking Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice and creating Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. It was a success,which led him to write his next hit Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter.
In Unholy Night he uses his wit to remake one of the most famous stories of all time, the nativity into a swashbuckling, fast paced, dark thriller  and somehow also manages to make it a faithful adventure. Unholy night is not just a retelling of the famous nativity story but a merger of one of the oldest stories in history combined with a likeable hero, Balthazaar the thief, leader and nonbeliever. Take your traditional nativity story  add in a mix of what if and you are set for a thrill a minute.
