Publisher's Summary

Katie is on the verge of her Rumspringa, the time in Amish life when teenagers can get a taste of the real world. But the real world comes to her in this dystopian tale with a philosophical bent. Rumors of massive unrest on the “Outside” abound. Something murderous is out there. Amish elders make a rule: No one goes outside, and no outsiders come in. But when Katie finds a gravely injured young man, she can’t leave him to die. She smuggles him into her family’s barn - at what cost to her community? The suspense of this vividly told, truly horrific thriller will keep the pages turning.

Not well written and under performed.

What would have made The Hallowed Ones better?

Take out all the words and start all over again.

What was most disappointing about Laura Bickle’s story?

The fact that it was sold as an Amish story and had very little to do with the Amish way of life.

How could the performance have been better?

The reader couldn't read well. She read a sentence and then, as if she had forgotten the next few words were in the same sentence, she sort of added them on in a lower voice.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Hallowed Ones?

I did not finish the book. I would have taken out the first scene of the helicopter crash and the "beast" or whatever in the helicopter.

Any additional comments?

Couldn't stand it. I very seldom not finish a book but this one was too much for me. I paid for it for nothing.

The Hallowed Ones

If you could sum up The Hallowed Ones in three words, what would they be?

Spirited, complex, and intriguing

What did you like best about this story?

I thought I was ahead of the story, and could guess what happened next. I loved that I was wrong at each turn. The story wasn't what I expected and kept me guessing until the very end.

Which character – as performed by Nora Hunter – was your favorite?

I loved the main character Katie. She was always questioning. She wanted answers and wouldn’t just sit by and take the opinions of others as truths.

Any additional comments?

I really enjoyed this book. It makes a person question their own beliefs and thoughts on religion and life. Even though this book is a work of fiction, it creates questions about religion and truth.

Amazing read!

This book was amazing! I absolutely loved this, I am amazed how the author managed to mix Amish and zombies together in a pot and come up with this masterpiece.i literally was addicted while reading this from beginning to end, I loved the characters, the setting and the action it was great. I have had to withhold myself from diving straight into book 2, but seriously I recommend this book to all as it is really a great read, hands down one of my favourites of this year😀
