I love a good horror novel. Right now most paranormal books tend toward romance rather than horror, so THE HALLOWED ONES by Laura Bickle was spookily refreshing.

Elija waited a whole year for Katie so that they could take their Rumspringa together, but when something terrifying — is it a plague? government disaster? vampires or zombies? — strikes the world outside their settlement, all the plain folk begin to wonder if there will ever be another Rumspringa — for Katie or Elijah or anyone else.~ read more ~
