Had this book's main character been just about anyone except Lincoln, I probably would have given it 4 or 5 stars. While the way his losses and reactions to those losses as written were very moving, the story cheapens his role in freeing the slaves by making it all about vampires and not at all about the slaves themselves.

As I said, if it had been about anyone else, I probably would have adored this book.
