Three Books on a Theme: Alternate History

Ever wished you could change history? Library staff recommend these tales of altered history.

The Hunger by Alma Katsu

"It’s a retelling of the Donner Party however… there are zombies involved if you’re catching my drift. (0.0)"
- Recommended by Carlos A.

An Easy Death by Charlaine Harris

"The 19-yr-old heroine is a gun for hire in an alternative version of the United States. The US has collapsed during WWII and been split into five different countries. Gunnie, Lizbeth Rose, lives in the southwestern territory of Texoma. Conditions are harsh, a little dystopian, but the central character is strong and pragmatic. The novel is first in a series of four by the same author who wrote the Sookie Stackhouse/True Blood series. Magic also exists in this world and our protagonist is hired by two Russian wizards to locate someone significant to them all. It’s unique, fast paced, and a fun read."
- Recommended by Connie S.

Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter by Seth Grahame-Smith

"It's such a fun read, so neatly woven and just a blast. I enjoyed it a lot!"
- Recommended by Paige C.
