The book itself is very straight and serious. It's basically Lincoln's biography with vampires inserted in such a way that you'd swear they had to have been an actual part of his life.
I read the book last year and enjoyed it enormously. It has a very serious, dramatic tone, and isn't played for laughs or camp at all. I highly recommend it.
I was surprised at being quite moved by several scenes - not ones about flaying vamps, but about losing his three sons.
