Be Not Afraid by K.R. Morrison
What happens when a Christian meets the undead? Meet Lydia Bronson. She’s a middle-aged mother of two college-age children and a devout Christian. Her favorite Bible verse is “I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.” She claims that promise every day. She will need it.
Lydia survives the violent attack of a vampire. She is dragged into a horrible place, dank, dark and rat-infested. She lies there hour after hour as the undead returns to feast on her blood. She is becoming one of them. Or is she?
God has other things in store for this woman. He sends her a vision of what is to come. She begins to understand firsthand God’s plan and the war that is raging. She is one of God’s chosen and she must make a choice.
This is not your run-of-the mill vampire story and if that’s what you are looking for, you may be disappointed. But if you don’t read the book you’ll be missing a unique, well-told story of what if?
Mystery and suspense lovers will enjoy this book because it chock-full of excitement and danger. Christian readers will like the honest straightforward way the author sets the belief system of the main character. Those who read horror will be immersed in an evil so vile it’s terrifying.
This is not my usual genre of preference to read. That being said, I thoroughly enjoyed the plot and the characters Ms. Morrison created. I was caught up in the fictional world while holding tight to my own Christian beliefs. The mark of a good reader is not categorizing oneself. I’m glad I climbed out on a limb and read this book – I would have missed a very interesting read!
