Here’s what’s on my wishlist this week:
“The Hallowed Ones” by Laura Bickle
In this captivating thriller, an Amish settlement is the last safe haven in a world plagued by an unspeakable horror…
Katie is on the verge of her Rumspringa, the time in Amish life when teenagers are free to experience non-Amish culture before officially joining the church. But before Rumspringa arrives, Katie’s safe world starts to crumble. It begins with a fiery helicopter crash in the cornfields, followed by rumors of massive unrest and the disappearance of huge numbers of people all over the world. Something is out there…and it is making a killing.
Unsure why they haven’t yet been attacked, the Amish Elders make a decree: No one goes outside their community, and no one is allowed in. But when Katie finds a gravely injured young man lying just outside the boundary of their land, she can’t leave him to die. She refuses to submit to the Elder’s rule and secretly brings the stranger into her community—but what else is she bringing in with him?
Why?: Not gonna lie, this sounds awesome. I have a bit of a morbid fascination with the Amish, and bringing an apocalyptic (and according to Lauren DeStefano, possibly vampiric!) story together with the Amish and making it a thriller? I’m all in. I can’t wait until I can get my hands on this one. It’ll be out in September. I just it’s as great as quite a few people are saying it is…
