From the author of the New York Times bestselling
Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, comes
UNHOLY NIGHT, the next evolution in dark historical
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 Hunter and Pride
and Prejudice and Zombies to take a little mystery, bend
a little history, and weave an epic tale.
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.
