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.
The story unfolded beautifully, making you feel like you knew the different characters, felt for them and their struggles. It's a long book, but it didn't feel like a lot of filler was thrown in to make it so, as with some other books I've read. Bravo, Mr. Nietz, I am officially a fan! Now...more, please!!!
