Be Not Afraid!
Be Not Afraid – My Review
I will be the first to admit that vampire novels and other paranormal works are not usually at the top of my list to read. I have read some, but it has been a while. And no, I haven’t read the Twilight books or seen any of the movies (sparkly vampires just aren’t my thing). So, when one of my fellow authors (K. R. Morrison) offered up the chance to read her novel Be Not Afraid, I wasn’t sure what to expect. In spite of my reservations, I was very pleasantly surprised.
The book opens with an office setting and a woman working late. She encounters Vlad, who kidnaps her and takes her to his lair where he tells her he has chosen her to be his eternal companion. Lydia, our hero, resists Vlad at every opportunity, calling upon her deep Christian faith to help her. What ensues is less typical vampire horror than a conflict between good and evil manifested in the flow of the conflict between Vlad and Lydia.
To be sure, there are some tense moments of horror, but they are used more for moving the story along and introducing the conflict than for the shock value of the horror.
This book is a rare blend of vampires, horror, and Christian fiction and is well worth the read! if vampires are your favorites, read this one!
