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."
