Review by Jill Williamson for Novel Teen
A creepy man approaches Beth Rider at the book signing for her latest novel. He threatens to kill her, and, later, attacks her in her hotel room, marking her as Rabbit. Beth soon finds out that her attacker was a real-life vampire. The redemptive message in her novels threatens to upset the evil way of life the vampires have been enjoying since the beginning.
Vampire, Michael Stone, stumbles upon Beth Rider and is confused. She is beautiful and innocent. He doesn’t understand why anyone would mark her as a rabbit. He decides to protect her from his brethren until he can figure out the mistake. But was it a mistake? Can Beth Rider’s god be Michael’s god too? If so, what does that mean for the Vampire race?
Bizarre and intriguing! Ellen C. Maze writes a creepy, powerful story with a unique, redemptive twist on the vampire tale. My only concern was that Beth Rider seemed a bit calm. I trust God with my life, and am faithful, but if vampires were hunting me, I’d be praying a lot more hysterically. Also, Simon’s backstory drew me out of the action. Still, the story was entertaining and action packed. Some of her vampires are kind. Some are creepy evil. This kind of book isn’t for everyone, but if you love vampire stories, you owe it to yourself to check this one out. It’s quite entertaining. Highly recommended for readers who don’t mind creepy stories.
