Synopsis

Jebediah has a secret that will change his world forever and send his people into space.

The Amish world of Alabaster calls upon an ancient promise to escape destruction. Then end up on a cargo ship bound for the stars.

But they are not the only cargo on board. Some of it is alive…or used to be.

Now, with vampires taking over and closing in on the Amish refugees, these simple believers must decide whether their faith depends upon their honored traditions or something even older.

Review

In spite of the garish cover and sensationalized media coverage of this lurid title, the book is quite tame. That’s not to say that it’s not creepy in the same sense that the original Dracula by Bram Stoker is creepy. And in much the same manner, people who would turn their noses up at reading the original book would also turn their noses up at this one.

And they’d be missing out.

I’ve never read Amish fiction, but can understand the attraction to stories a highly moral society living in today’s more corrupted culture. Regardless, the book had a realistic feel to the presentation of those characters. The science fiction dominates the book, obviously, and the book itself would appeal most to lovers of this genre. And yes, it’s Christian Fiction, but not in a preachy or overbearing way – so that curious non-Christians should still find the book enjoyable.
