Unholy Night

What if the three wise men were petty, murderous theives who, under cover of night, stumble upon the celebrated manger with its newborn child? The last thing they'd want would be to be slowed down by Joseph, Mary and their infant, but when King Herod's men began their slaughter of the firstborns, they were left with no choice but to help the young family on their flight to Egypt...

  • "From the author of the New York Times bestselling "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies" comes UNHOLY NIGHT, the next evolution in dark historical revisionism. The Three Kings of the Nativity are an iconic part of history's most celebrated birth. But what do we really know about them besides the claim 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 history, bend it, and weave an epic tale. In UNHOLY NIGHT the so-called Three Wise Men are infamous thieves, led by the 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 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."

  • "So genial wurde die Weihnachtsgeschichte noch nie erzählt Caspar, Melchior und Balthasar kommen nicht aus dem Morgenland. Sie kommen aus Jerusalem. Genauer gesagt: aus dem Knast in Jerusalem. Denn sie sind die meistgesuchten Verbrecher der Stadt. In Bethlehem reiten sie eigentlich nur zufällig vorbei, und diese hyperaktive Jungfamilie, die sie dort vorfinden, können sie auf der Flucht vor Herodes überhaupt nicht gebrauchen. Doch als dieser befiehlt, alle Erstgeborenen zu töten, nehmen die drei Gauner Josef, Maria und den Heiland notgedrungen mit nach Ägypten... Seth Grahame-Smith wurde 1976 in New York geboren und wuchs in Connecticut auf. Er studierte Filmwissenschaften in Boston und arbeitet als Drehbuchautor und Filmproduzent. Nebenbei schreibt er Bücher und stürmt regelmässig die amerikanischen Bestsellerlisten. Der Autor lebt mit seiner Familie in Los Angeles."
