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 Hunter and 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.

Summary

A New York Times bestseller

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 Hunter and 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.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Grahame-Smith manages the neat trick of providing a satisfying and moving new ending to a story that has been recounted untold times.” The Washington Post
“Narrator Peter Berkrot has a rough-and-tumble yet conspiratorial voice that perfectly fits the book’s frequent violence. Even as he’s savoring the earthy language, he softens his tone to help keep the atrocities at arm’s length. The text is not irreverent, and Berkrot’s narration is deft and engaging.” AudioFile
Unholy Night is certain to generate both strong interest and intense controversy.” Barnes & Noble, editorial review
“Peter Berkrot provides an enjoyable performance.”  Publishers Weekly
“Grahame-Smith…hones his writing chops in this latest take on history’s mysteries.”  Kirkus Reviews
“A rollicking, swords-and-sandals yarn.” Booklist
