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 Balthar'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.
