Review - The Hallowed Ones by Laura Bickle

The Hallowed Ones - Laura Bickle

Is this a Movie yet?!! If not, why not?!! 


I've been wanting to read a story featuring the Amish for quite a while now and have been collecting interesting ones when I find them.  I've had this one since it first came out but was put off a bit as I think it's YA.  I don't usually get much from YA stories but there are always exceptions, plus I was also in the mood for something end-of-the-world-y so I figured I could use this one to kill two birds with one stone.  I wasn't sure what I was getting into as Vampire apocalypse and the Amish don't really go together...Turns out they go together like they go together like PB & J!!


I. Loved. It.  Simply wonderful.  I lapped it all up and the only reason I didn't finish it in one day was that I had to sleep last night, otherwise I'd have ripped through it.  Finished it today after having been glued to is since my eyes opened this morning. 


Great writing, great storytelling, great characters, great dialogue, great everything.  Plain folk and scary vampires, what's not to love?!


I've heard that the next one isn't as good but I'm going to try it anyway and I'll hopefully get to it this week while it's all still fresh in my mind as I'm keen to see what happens next.  Especially if the Bishop meets a grisly end.


Great story and one I'd highly recommend.
