Worlds of imagination by Sara B. Gauldin
I have once again succumbed to my weakness for books in a series. I have always been a voracious reader, so sometimes a single book seems like just an opening for a larger story. I this case I gave in, and read all three books in the series in rapid succession.
At first glimpse the premise of a gathering of undead vampires living off of a quiet and unsuspecting community away from the constructs of modern life intrigued me. The books are all well written with an active plot line that never left me waiting for what happens next. The story unfolded very naturally and the characters were human and familiar. I was a little nervous about how the character element would be presented before I began reading the books. I was curious how the author would make two very foreign groups, the Amish and the Vampires relate-able and approachable to readers like myself who have always been surrounded by a technological and fully alive selection of people to interact with. Brink pulled off the character element with style and grace. The protagonist, Jael was as vulnerable as any teenager would be, yet she found her inner strength and was able to preserver against forces and situations that placed her in a difficult situation at a very young age. Her peers were diverse and endearing. Her interactions with Amish world(out of her comfort zone) were refreshing. The Amish themselves, who are stigmatized in today’s world were painted with a brush of humanity that made them recognizable and believable despite their cultural differences from the world the main character was accustomed to.
All of that aside, these books were action packed reads that filled the promise for edge of your seat slaying action while remaining true to a moral and a clean portrayal of the life of a young woman. I also enjoyed the biblical elements that were skillfully woven in as an integral parts of the story line. They are a great choice for a fun summer (or any season) read!
