While this is obviously a book that revolves around faith, there are enough elements from the fantasy and mythological realms that make it a very intriguing and enveloping read. Whether or not you have faith of any kind, please take the time to pick it up and read it. It took me a while to get through because of life but I was finally able to find time to get back into it and I finished it in a mere couple of hours. This is definitely a book that those with faith, without it, recently lost it or looking for it need to pick up.
Lydia is married to a loving husband, and is a devout Christian. But when she is abducted by a shadowy creature of the night, her faith is put under a strain that she could never imagine.
What follows reminds me of a classical reworking of the trials of Job, as everything she has worked for is stripped from her, and she questions the tenants that she has founded her life on, as she is transformed into a hideous vampire.
Then, in her darkest hour, she receives a divine message the she is to be one of the Chosen - a messenger of God who is to prepare mankind for the coming war between good and evil.
This tale is lifted high above the general morass of fang-'em-ups with it's message of hope, and the authors expert understanding of what the vampire represents. The bloodsucking undead do not represent some Romantic notion of immortality, but the very embodiment of the anti-christ.
Where Jesus said, "I am the light", so the vampire says "I am the darkness".
Where Jesus is the resurrection, so vampires are undeath, sentenced to walk in perpetuity upon the Earth.
Where Jesus represent the chaste, so the vampire (and his fangs upon the erogenous neck) represents decadence and sinful debauchery.
The true nature of the vampire is laid bare in this slick thriller that sucks (no pun intended) you from the first page and keeps you turning the pages until the small hours.
This highly original work will appeal to many who seek a modern interpretation of the Good Message.
Lydia has an unwelcome visitor one late evening at work and from that moment her life changes forever.
Vlad is a vampire and wants a new recruit. Lydia's strong faith in God does not save her, however, things are not always what they seem.
This was an unusual story, one told extremely well, but one that was a curious mix of Christian belief and vampire horror, certainly one about the forces of good v evil.
Being a non-believer makes me question this kind of dogma, although, I do think the author did a good job putting across her point in an entertaing way...her writing is a testament to her talent.
I may not agree, but I appreciate its message - it's always good to read other points of view and 'think'.
