for the Bookworms, Showcasing other Creatives

Book Review: Rabbit – Chasing Beth Rider by Ellen C Maze

What are the chances that Ellen would be feeling “givey” on the same day I’d be feeling “getty”? Well probably not that statistically improbable, but I am so glad that Lil Roni Publishers surprised me with the opportunity to receive this book.

While I wouldn’t say I’ve read every Christian vampire novel out there, I’ve read a few and been disappointed by all – until now. I feel that “Rabbit: Chasing Beth Rider” succeeded in what all the other Christian vampire novels attempted to do: create a Biblical backstory, throw in a redemptive plan, and of course entertain the masses 🙂 The worldbuilding was over-the-top, with the different creative types of vampire hunting/feeding. Love it!

When Beth Rider’s books gives vampires hope of redemption, she becomes a target and is marked to be a “Rabbit” – chased and caught for the fun of them all. The ancient war is played out as she battles evil alongside those in search of their humanity.

I was a bit disappointed in the characterization of Beth Rider – most of the time, she seemed too calm and took the crazy occurrences in stride like nobody should realistically. But that did not detract from the story enough for me to not enjoy it – I’d take this Christian vampire tale over any other I’ve read to date.

Finally, the ending left me with many questions of – what now? Problem solved – and not. Which is of course how the best books should end!
