About the Series: The Amish Bloodsuckers Trilogy
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."

I could not resist this Amish/vampire genre mash-up. Teenage Jael is the "Chosen One", born to slay the vampires that have infiltrated an Amish community in Minnesota that was the home of her parents. As befits a vampire slayer, Jael is named after a heroine of the Old Testament who killed an enemy of God's chosen people by driving a tent stake through his head.

In order to protect Jael until she develops her full powers her family has been on the run since before she was born, but now that she is about to turn 16 it's time for her to step up to her God-given responsibilities. Jael has had to live life as an outsider, unable to attend school functions like football games and having to spend hours a day practicing martial arts with her father, but with the help of her best friend Bree Jael is pushing at those boundaries. Bree doesn't know the truth about Jael, but somehow Shad, a Native American tracker who is also a student at their school, does. Shad is a good looking loner, but it is Bree who is interested in him, not Jael. Jael takes her preordained mission seriously but she has a humorous edge to her outlook, which adds to the fun of reading the book.
