One girl. One road. One chance to save what remains…
After a plague of vampires is unleashed in the world, Katie is kicked out of her Amish community for her refusal to adhere to the new rules of survival. Now in exile, she enters an outside world of unspeakable violence with only her two “English” friends and a horse by her side. Together they seek answers and other survivors—but each sunset brings the threat of vampire attack, and each sunrise the threat of starvation.
And yet through this darkness come the shining ones: luminescent men and women with the power to deflect vampires and survive the night. But can these new people be trusted, and are they even people at all?
In this edge-of-your-seat thriller, it’s up to one Amish girl to save her family, her community, and the boy she loves . . . but what will she be asked to leave behind in return?
- Katie- is such a strong character it’s impossible not to love her. She doesn’t let anyone tell her what to do and always makes decisions based on her heart.
- Alex- is smart, incredibly brave, and so protective of Katie. I love how he always calls her Bonnett, so cute.
- Katie & Alex- For a couple that was never supposed to be together they sure are perfect for one another. Even though they share vastly different beliefs, I love that Alex respected Katie’s ways and though he didn’t agree with them, he never tried to change her.
- Ginger- I really enjoyed getting to know more about Ginger and how she loved Katie as her own daughter.
