Meet Beth Rider. She writes Christian vampire novels. After reading her latest publication, The Judging (also authored by Ellen Maze – read my review here), real vampires are being inspired toward salvation. The problem is that the vampire hierarchy doesn’t appreciate so many of their underlings turning to “Beth Rider’s” God. Marking Beth as an enemy of the Brotherhood, the hierarchy orders that she, and all those vampires who are turning toward God because of her, be caught, tortured, and eliminated. Now the chase is on as Beth and her new bloodthirsty friends must trust God for their very survival.
I continue to be impressed with Maze’s writing. Her prose is clean, her characters well-formed, and her pacing flawless. The action will grab you from page one and keep you turning to the end.
I especially love how Ellen paints such strong Christian characters in her novels. They are obvious proof of the author’s own Christian passion and maturity shining through her work.
I have definitely become a fan of Maze’s writing and will look forward to reading the follow-up volumes, Loose Rabbits and Rabbit Legacy. The Judging and the forthcoming Damascus Road, are written as the character Beth Rider’s fictional novels. You can start with either Rabbit: Chasing Beth Rider, or The Judging, but I did enjoy reading The Judging first as it gave me more of an insider’s view on what the characters in Rabbit: Chasing Beth Rider were referring to.
Rabbit: Chasing Beth Rider is an Excellent novel. I can’t recommend it highly enough.
Rabbit: Chasing Beth Rider is available from EllenCMaze.com.
