I read this book a few years back and really enjoyed it. Read a similar book about Abraham Lincoln. While the subject matter was a little far fetched, the historical content was spot on. Monster fans sign up. Good Oct/ Halloween read. The Lincoln version was made into one of the College guys Pizza/ Beer Channels that caters to that demographic. However don't expect Judy Dench, Helen Mirren, or Maggie Smith to sign up for this adaptation to the silver screen. Maybe Joanna Lumley or Dawn French. How absolutley fabubulous would that be.

Enjoyable, with some truly funny moments, but not the best to the genre.

Ah, Queen Victoria, the stiff-upper-lipped little woman whose long rule oversaw the British Empire?s growing power in all things industrial, political, military, cultural, and scientific. She was a controversial monarch whose assassination was attempted some dozen times in her life. The first attempt, though few know it today, came on the eve of her ascension to the throne when a foul demon (yes, demon) infiltrated her bedroom and attempted to slice her into little pieces. Young Victoria, as told in author A.E. Moorat?s new biography Queen Victoria, Demon Hunter, is not too surprised that there are demons?she has received an excellent education, after all?but it does come as something of a shock that she, as queen, is to be the lead demon hunter of the land. Still, Victoria is determined to be a successful ruler in all areas, and willingly begins training under the Protektorate, a motley crew of warriors in possession of all manner of demon-slaying skills?and in Victorian England, demons come in all sizes and shapes. As Victoria learns the proper way to behead a zombie, defeat a werewolf, and tackle other evil spirits, her mind occasionally wanders to daydreams of handsome Prince Albert. Trying to balance the desires of the heart with the demands of a demon-ravaged kingdom is certainly a trial, but no one is better suited to meet the challenge than the new Queen Victoria. There?s enough gore here to thrill raving horror fans, enough historical detail to satisfy devoted Anglophiles, and plenty of dashes of humor, romance, and satire to tie it all together in a neat little bow?and then, of course, good old Vicky will come along and lop its head off.
