Jael is just an average teenage girl with over-protective parents, an unrequited crush on the hottest guy at school, and a best friend she shares everything with. Until her parents let her in on the secret they’ve kept for nearly sixteen years… 
Jael is the Chosen One. Born to be a vampire slayer, her destiny was written in the Book of the Shunned. She's been chosen by God to set the Minnesota Loon Lake Amish community free from the grip of the Bishop, an ancient and powerful bloodsucker who has been using the Amish people for his own personal Jamba Juice.

Will she leave her friends and all she knows and follow her destiny to Minnesota willingly, or will the Bishop bring her destiny to Sunburn, Nevada?

*CHOSEN HAS BEEN OPTIONED!*

~ I've optioned the film rights for the Amish Bloodsuckers Trilogy to Screenwriter Lee Tidball, who will be adapting its first book, CHOSEN, into a screenplay that he and his Hollywood representative will market to production companies and studios. Lee's scripts have been optioned three times now by various Hollywood entities, and his work has also garnered numerous recognitions in major international screenwriting competitions. He was drawn to the Amish Bloodsuckers Trilogy because of its dynamic YA characters and fresh, highly unique take on the ever-popular vampire tale." ~

What readers are saying:

"Author Barbara Ellen Brink simply created the freshest, coolest, most fun bend on the YA vampire tale I've read in years. With obvious homage to the original "Buffy, the Vampire Slayer," this riveting, action-packed, vamp-rocking romp is a unique breath of fresh air unlike any of the myriad copy-cat vampire series currently populating the YA section of your average Barnes and Noble--and so much more..." ~~

"I don't normally like vampire books. But this isn't about vampires--it's about a vampire slayer. Not only that, it's captivating, exciting, and well-written!" ~~

"The author writes a compelling action, adventure yarn with an improbable premise: Amish vampires and the Chosen, an Amish girl destined to fight these extraordinary nightmares." ~~

"This book didn't disappoint. It had a strong, tough heroine who struggled between her calling and the desire to just be a normal girl, it had butt-kicking action scenes, and it had the kind of quotable lines we got when Buffy was at her snarky best. It had a thread of wry humor that ran throughout the book and nicely balanced out the drama and suspense that kept me reading late into the night."
