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 starts out slowly, introducing you to the Amish culture. I would like to point out that I was very impressed with how they were represented during the entire story. Never once did I feel they were the target of ridicule. It was done in a way that those not familiar with their beliefs would grasp them well enough to keep up with the story.
I was about 30% in when I realized that not only was this book unique but it was going to be one that would stick with me, especially Jebediah. I'm pretty impressed with how well it was told. The story is actually plausible. There are no lose ends or plot holes, everything is explained in a way that it's easy to accept.
This may not be anyone's choice of a normal read, it's an Amish science fiction! I know it sounds silly, but it was a really great story. I even cried at one part! It's a long book as well, but it reads easily. Anyone who is a fan of science fiction or Christian fiction would enjoy this book. Also, everyone should just read it anyway because, come on, how amusing would it be to tell people that you're readingAmish Vampires in Space?
