    One thought on “Chosen”

    1. My first book by this author, and the first book in this series.This was both something of a random pick-up and random decision to read. At some point in October I noticed the book, and that it was free. No, I don’t normally pick up every free book I spot. This one just caught my eye. A Buffy the Slayer type book (not that I've actually ever read a Buffy prose novel, though I've read a bunch of graphic novels). Took me about two months, but I finally got around to reading. Jael Shetler has spe [...]

    2. This good writing style gave an easy flow to this story which charts the unexpected life of its protagonist within the unlikely Amish community.Although an unusual environment, its characters were realistic and gave depth to the plot.I don't give spoilers, but will say that this story is worth a look.

    3. I love the cover art for this book. I just knew it was going to be a fun read, and it was! I mean, Amish blood sucking vampires, now you know that’s going to be fun!Jael is The Chosen One. She is descended from a long line of slayers. It’s her duty to save the Loon Lake Amish Community, which has been infiltrated by Bishop and his pack of vampires. He wants her dead before her 16th birthday, when she’ll come into her full slayer abilities.Her parents, Miriam and Jesse, were forced to leave [...]

    4. I received a free copy of this novel in exchange for my honest review. Jael Shetler is about to celebrate her sixteenth birthday. Her father has spent years training her in martial arts for this very day. You see, Jael is the Chosen One; the one that will slay vampires and bring order to her parents hometown, Loon Lake in Minnesota. Unfortunately, she had no idea until 3 weeks prior.Brianna is Jael’s best friend and polar opposite. She’s accepted all of Jael’s quirks and ignores the bizarr [...]

    5. I could not resist this Amish/vampire genre mash-up. Teenage Jael is the “Chosen One”, born to slay the vampires that have infiltrated an Amish community in Minnesota that was the home of her parents. As befits a vampire slayer, Jael is named after a heroine of the Old Testament who killed an enemy of God’s chosen people by driving a tent stake through his head. In order to protect Jael until she develops her full powers her family has been on the run since before she was born, but now tha [...]

    6. The first book in my Amish Bloodsuckers Trilogy was great fun to write. There is a lot of humor, a little angst, and a small group of friends tightening ranks as they realize what they're up against. Jael is a teenager just trying to fit in when her parents drop this whole "you are chosen" thing into her lap. She didn't even know she was Amish, and now this?? Whether you are a vampire fiction fan or not, you will find adventure, laughs, and good clean fun in Sunburn, Nevada as Jael trains to pur [...]

    7. Let's be clear about this upfront - for the most part I'm not a fan of vampires. Other than the really old Dracula and Dark Shadows, they just aren't my thing. But, being a Barbara Ellen Brink fan, I decided to give this series a try. The result: I love her vampire slayer Jael! Chosen introduces us to this teen heroine whose calling is clear and dangerous and ancient. I will be sharing this series with my great niece who is almost 11.

    8. I admire Barbara Brink. She writes in many genres, while the rest of us struggle to perfect ONE. Her "Amish Bloodsucker Trilogy" is YA fiction at its best. This one has it all: vampires, religion, and just enough Pop Culture to give the book pizazz. Fun!

    9. This was an ok book. It was pretty good for a first novel. However there was not as much of the Amish element as I had hopped. Perhaps the next book will be better since I think this one mostly set up the story. It was still worth reading without a lot of Amish elements.

    10. Buffy Meets the Amish!I was immediately drawn in by this book's title and the parallels to Buffy the Vampire Slayer (a show I loved in its heyday)--a teenage girl finding out that she's the Chosen One who can stop the vampires and the spread of darkness, all while dealing with normal teenage angst like whether the guy she's crushing on likes her back. This book didn't disappoint. It had a strong, tough heroine who struggled between her calling and the desire to just be a normal girl, it had butt [...]

    11. This is an unusual book to classify. I love that indie publishing allows for these unique books that don’t really fit into a comfortable niche, ones that publishers often reject for that very reason, no matter how well written the story might be. This one warrants a place on the virtual shelves.Jael, named for the Old Testament slayer of Sisera, is a normal fifteen-year-old girl. At least, she wishes she was normal. But coming from an unsocial family living 30 miles into the dessert, she’s o [...]

    12. At first glimpse the premise of a gathering of undead vampires living off of a quiet and unsuspecting community away from the constructs of modern life intrigued me. The books are all well written with an active plot line that never left me waiting for what happens next. The story unfolded very naturally and the characters were human and familiar. I was a little nervous about how the character element would be presented before I began reading the books. I was curious how the author would make tw [...]

    13. Being a teenager is easier than being a slayer.I usually avoid vampire novels but this one seemed intriguing. I quickly discovered that it's more than a vampire novel. If Buffy the Vampire Slayer was Amish, she'd be the heroine, Jael. Raised by parents who ran from the dark secret of their Amish community in Minnesota, Jael studied martial arts and hid from view as she grew up. She longed to go to school and fit in with the other kids, go to dances and enjoy parties. Now that she's turning sixte [...]

    14. "I wish there had been a lot more Amish and Amish culture to compare/contrast/clash with the standard high-school-student-finds-out-she's-special story line. Jael's family doesn't live in an Amish community but in rural Nevada. There's talk about the Amish once her parents 'fess up about what's going on. But we don't see any for quite a while. And then they're just bad guys in funny clothes. They also drive a truck and use a cell phone, which isn't what I was expecting from a book with "Amish" i [...]

    15. It sounds like it would be awesome, Buffy meets the Amish. Amish vampires in general would be prime specimens considering they are already extremely strong, vampire strength would be spectacular in them. I was sadly disappointed. The book is entertaining, but almost a complete knock off of Buffy. Buffy is even referenced in the book. I am not an expert on Amish, far from it, but I have lived near a community and interacted enough to know little mannerisms, this book has like no Amish presence at [...]

    16. Well could I resist snagging this book for free when I had the chance? Boy oh boy am I glad I did!!! Let me state quite boldly here, I do NOT read very many YA books, this one I had heard a lot about and I was intrigued. I was definitely not disappointed!!Loved the story, characters, the fact that this author took a small verse from the Old Testament and spun it into an memorable story full of AV's (read the book to figure it out.), God and the love of family.Jael is one of the Chosen, known by [...]

    17. I was excited by the idea of mashing up Amish living with vampires. I should have realized it would not be what I had hoped for. It was pretty tame as books go. Silly characters that you cannot relate to and definitely feel no pull to either really like or really hate them. I was saddened by that - I mean who doesn't love a horrible evil character to hate and loathe? Jael (the main character) could have been better developed I feel. She lacked depth in my opinion. Perhaps all of my issues with t [...]

    18. I can't help myself but almost at every turn of the Page I the think Buffy the Vampire slayer and Characters from the Twighlight saga with a touch of Scooby Doo!!! After reading book one the only originality I can find is that it is based on and around the Amish. Having said that I just started reading part 2 and will read part 3. Because dispite all of the above I am enjoying the story immenselyd that's why I have given it 4 stars

    19. The story is good, but the characters feel extremely under-developed and I feel it lacks a real plot. To be completely honest, it actually feels like a bad Buffy fanfic with all the names and places changed. It could have been so much better if it wasn't trying so hard to be Buffy, but that's just my opinion

    20. With such a bizarre concept, I was hoping this might be funny tongue-in-cheek. It did have a sense of humor, but it was not the satire I was hoping for. I gave it three stars for solid writing, standard plot and character elements. It didn't grab me, though, in the first two chapters, so I've moved on to books that do.

    21. Such a fun book. Refreshing to read about killing vampires rather than making out with them - and not too gory either. A YA book I could recommend without hesitation. I am excited to read the next one.

    22. Am a teen you likes good booksI read a lot but not many books are good this one was good she should have not end the book the way she did but if you are a teen that just can't find the best books read this one

    23. AVAVMore than the cover, which didn't do much for me the description was good. This was a fresh perspective on a vampire.
