Jebediah has a secret that will change his world forever and send his people into space.
The Amish world of Alabaster calls upon an ancient promise to escape destruction. Then end up on a cargo ship bound for the stars.
But they are not the only cargo on board. Some of it is alive…or used to be.
Now, with vampires taking over and closing in on the Amish refugees, these simple believers must decide whether their faith depends upon their honored traditions or something even older.
What others are saying
With a title like that, I, personally, would have preferred campy humor. Puns, jokes, ridiculousness just for the fun of it, that sort of thing. Amish Vampires in Space has none of those. In spite of that, the book is still funny. The humor, in this case, is supplied solely by the reader. There were moments when I was caught up in the tale, stopped, blinked a few times and thought “This is crazy, and yet it works…”
As long as you accept some standard sci-fi conventions, there aren’t any plot holes that make the tale not believable. And for that, I think Kerry Nietz has firmly established himself as a mad genius.
I initially resisted this book because of the silly title. When I understood how it came about, I had to smile as I, too, had been caught up in the Amish frenzy in Christian fiction. Knowing the background, I understood and appreciated the challenge of writing a serious book based on a joke of a title. This solid and satisfying book is well crafted, with a credible setting, an intriguing secret, and characters who feel like family.
