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 vampire who has been using the Amish people for his own personal Jamba Juice.
Will she willingly leave her friends and all she knows to follow her destiny to Minnesota or will the Bishop bring destiny down on her in Sunburn, Nevada?
Soon Jael is turning sweet sixteen, and all heck will break loose.
“Funny and surprisingly light hearted for such a dark subject.”
“The mix of suspense and humor kept me turning the pages.”
But to destroy the Bishop, she must first find out what his diabolical plans are for the teenagers of the community, and put a stop to him and his undead followers before it’s too late.
“I flew through this book. It was highly entertaining.”
“Barbara does it again! This is a cleverly crafted book with more vampires, more suspense, and more humor! My boys, ages ten and twelve, were very interested in reading this series after hearing my laughter.”
With old friends in town for the summer and a boyfriend as loyal as Captain America, Jael is never short of help. The problem is, slaying vamps and having people around that you love can be a dangerous combination. Experience tells her to distance herself from them, but sometimes destiny weaves certain people together and there’s no separation from love.
Jael has some hard decisions to make this summer and she’s afraid not everyone will be on board. Will she fulfill her destiny or fall into the Bishop’s trap?
“I’ve gotten attached to the people and setting of this series, so finishing this last book in the trilogy about Jael, the teenage Amish vampire slayer, was almost as sad as it was satisfying.”
“This is a great wrap up to this series! I’m sad it’s over. Who knows, Jael is young, maybe we’ll hear from her again! (Wink) Five drops of blood for Reckoning!”
