It was interesting to learn a bit about the Amish lifestyle and beliefs. And it was refreshing to find a story not laced with sex. There was some teen lust, but the characters were mature and had beliefs that kept them in check.
The only complaint was there were quite a few typos and the word "because", abbreviated, should be 'cause, not cause. I have to say that drove me a little batty. However, as you can see, in the big picture of it all, it's a small thing.
Barbara Brink can write. She is a storyteller with talent. I strongly recommend this series.
This book reminded me of the Buffy the Vampire Slayer television series in that it involved a teenage girl slaying vampires with the help of her friends. There was also a little romance for those romantically inclined.
The first book lays the groundwork for the second and third. The story starts off with Jael as a misfit in a regular high school located in Sunburn, Nevada. She discovers just before her sixteenth birthday that she is the chosen one. Her father, mother and an uncle are aware of this and have been training Jael to fight vampires from a very early age. Jael's parents are from the Amish community of Loon Lake, Minnesota where vampires have taken over the leadership. I don't want to reveal any more of the plot, but have no doubt this is a unique and engaging read.
I liked the writing style. I liked the characters. The story was action packed. There was enough detail to paint a picture, but not so much that the story bogged down in it. One thing I appreciated was the respectful way Barbara E. Brink treated people who live and express their faith in a way far from mainstream. Important life lessons were shared without being clunky and getting in the way of telling a good story.
The only real complaint I have is that the author's writing is so captivating that it was impossible to stop at one book. Housework and other non-essential work waited until I finished all three books. I am going to make sure there is nothing super important on my calendar before I start another book by Barbara E. Brink.
I purchased copies of this book individually at Amazon.ca
All of that aside, these books were action packed reads that filled the promise for edge of your seat slaying action while remaining true to a moral and a clean portrayal of the life of a young woman. I also enjoyed the biblical elements that were skillfully woven in as an integral parts of the story line. They are a great choice for a fun summer (or any season) read!
She is a young woman on a mission that includes sorrow, misunderstanding, danger, and fear. In order to live, she must vanquish the head vampire. On the way to conquest she also discovers hope, faith, and love.
If you’re looking for a series to give to your vampire loving teen, The Amish Bloodsucker Trilogy is an excellent option. I highly recommend it and give it a hearty 5 stars!
