Plain Fear: Forsaken is not spooky or at all an atmospheric vampire paranormal story. Although not a book I would normally read, this book was recommended to be by a co-worker because I am a vampire fan. This is the first book I've read where the lead characters were Amish. I felt that there wasn¿t a huge presence of the Amish styles though, just some key term words thrown around, and some Bible scripture, and poof, it¿s an Amish book. Either way I read the blurb about the book and felt compelled to see how a vampire tied into an Amish story. The writing is flat and the characters the same. It doesn't take much on the reader's part to figure out who the vampire Avika is. This book takes on several different points of view and the ending is left wide open, if felt incomplete and rushed. I spent much of this book, hoping it would get better and hoping there would be some twist I missed, something to make me go ¿OH!¿, but nothing came. Overall, this book was a big miss for me, I wish it had been more but it is what it is; which is, Vampires with the Amish.

Satan is a roaring lion seeking whom he may devour...while masquerading as an angel of light. This book is an excellent picture of just how that happens. Something traumatic happens. A person gets stuck in the void instead of looking beyond it and letting God fill it with something new, and Satan steps in with a great answer. In fact, the answer seems almost too good to be true. Because it is. It is spiritual warfare 101, but it is so much more. It is Truth on deep, deep levels. The truth of our deep need for love and the ability to trust and believe in something that lasts a lifetime. The Truth of how cunning Satan can be. And the Truth of God's protection, provision, and love. Leanna Ellis has done a fabulous job of weaving a story of intrigue, suspense, and Truth that not only cuts to the heart of human need but shows with wondrous detail how God puts lives--singular and plural--together for a greater purpose. It is easy to stand in the aftermath of trauma and see what has been lost. It is another thing to stand in the aftermath of trauma and realize there is much to be taken from it...and much to be given to others whether that be in compassion, love, wisdom, skill set, or simple presence. One never knows how God will use one's own pain or one's own loss to be the healing balm or to bring victory to another...especially to someone who feels "Forsaken".

It was an enjoyable read to pass away a slow weekend. It's nit earth shattering but does give great insight into the eorld of the amish.

Both my husband and I read this book. He LOVED it...I thought it was good. Having spent many summers living on an Amish farm, I know that it was very far-fetched (well, it IS about vampires so that wasn't a huge surprise). But it was a really good read. Well written, moves quickly, good characters. A few holes in the story that are missing closure but I recommend it.

I'm not a fan of vampire books, but found this one to keep my interest from page to page. It was a good way to spend the day.

Little character development, bloody and not a happy ending

It was a good love story involving a vampire in the amish community. It was different.

Excellent read. Vampires and Amish we need more like this. Started Book 2. Couldn't put book 1 down.

Good Reading, but Watch Out! The cover of this book reflects well the inside writing: very dark and mysterious. Leanna Ellis doesn’t usually write in this mode, but she, as in all her writing, does this one very well. Anyone familiar with her previous work would wonder why Leanna would write a book about vampires and the Amish world. There definitely exists a need for someone to treat this subject, as there are more and more movies and television shows and books coming out in this genre. The subject is so evil it takes a very strong writer to handle it. This book has been heavily prayed over and received much support in its work. Leanna has done an excellent job of research both of the vampires and of the Amish. The book is well-written. The characters are very strong. Her plot will keep you turning pages to see what happens next, and at the end of the book, you’re looking for the sequel, which I’m sure will be coming. I would recommend this book to anyone with any interest in the subject of vampires and how young people may be drawn to them. But beware. Vampires ARE evil.

I love reading Amish fiction and not overly interested in the vampre craze but this book was very intriging. It got pretty gruesome in parts but good always overcomes evil. Sounds like maybe a sequel will be forthcoming?

Vampires as a subject is not usually my pick but the book was good after I got into it.
