Book Description

In the mid-24th century the vampire threat is so terrible that humanity is on the run and their numbers are dwindling. The only ones willing and able to fight the vampire plague are those in The Order.

In addition to creating specialized vampire-killing weapons, The Order has protected all the world’s leading scientists. They’re rewarded with the ultimate breakthrough: time travel. But there’s a catch -- if you return to your present time, your mind doesn’t come home with you.

Now a select team will be sent back to the Middle Ages, to stop the vampire threat before it can spread. They’re the best vampire slayers of their day and age, but once they go a thousand years into the past they’re strangers in a strange old land. Their perfect weapons aren’t working right, their numbers are too small, and the vampires seem to know who they are. It will take the ultimate leap of faith for the team to have a chance to complete their mission -- and survive.

5.0 out of 5 stars Engaging Read February 13, 2012
Is traveling back in time ever a good idea?

The Disciple is absolutely captivating. Not only is the premise of traveling back in time to eradicate vampires and save the future of humanity intriguing, but the way Ms. Chase chooses to tell the story is also unique. Christabelle is a member of The Order, and the story is told through the pages of her journal. I found this approach to first person storytelling interesting and it really made me feel as if I were experiencing the events described in the journal though Christabelle's eyes.

Ms. Chase did an excellent job developing Christabelle's character. Even though this is a very short story, I truly became attached to Christabelle. My heart ached as she lost the people she cared about and I felt her fatigue and loneliness as she wondered if her mission would ultimately end in failure or success. Her strength and dedication to her cause are admirable, but the fact that her doubts and questions are also expressed truly made her a well rounded character.

What I liked most about The Disciple is that it really made me think. Since Christabelle can never return to her own time, she will never know if her actions affected the future in a positive or negative way. Consequently, the reader is left wondering as well. This made for a very open ended yet satisfying conclusion. Since I finished reading The Disciple, I have had a lot of fun dreaming up different scenarios of how things might have turned out for the world Ms. Chase created.

I am so glad I read The Disciple, and I will certainly be recommending it to my friends. It is a fascinating and thought provoking tale sure to stir the imagination.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not your typical vampire book February 10, 2012
By Colette
This is such a gritty, dark Urban Fantasy story and I love it. This is not your typical vampire story. The vampires have taken over the world and humans live in fear of them. To stop them The Order sends people back through time to fight them. They are realizing though that it's not working. There are too many problems with short term trips to the past. To combat this problem they send a team back to when vampirism started growing-the 1200s. A team volunteers to go back in time to find the source of where it began to stop it, never knowing if their mission will be successful or not.

There is a lot of fighting, some romance and enough twists and turns where I was surprised by the ending. My only problem with this book was that wish it had been longer. I really liked all the members of the team sent back through time and would have liked to have seen their characters develop a bit more. I think that this book would work well as a series. There are far too few good time travel books out there. If you are looking for a different type of vampire book, then I highly recommend this one.
