Review of Plain Fear Forsaken

Plain Fear Forsaken
Leanna Ellis
Sourcebooks Landmark
ISBN 9781402255403

   Hannah is unable to move on with her grief after her love Jacob dies in an unfortunate farm accident. At least that is what everyone is told. Jacob is buried quickly and the family moves to Ohio. Everyone that is, except Jacob's brother, Levi.  
   Levi is unable to move forward either; but his reasons are entirely different then Hannah's. Levi is in love with Hannah; but he is aware of how much she loved his brother Jacob. He also knows how his brother actually died and he is prepared to take it to his grave.
   A stranger comes to the Amish community and he brings along a secret as well. This secret will force Hannah to make a choice between the dark and the light. Levi will also be forced to confront that which he has been trying to hide while remaining true to his family. 
   This is an amazing tale crossing an Amish story of love and faith with the dark sinister side of evil. The evil  world of vampires. This is a unique story that does a wonderful job of crossing the genres. I had my reservations before reading ; but I am happy to say the story was wonderful. I was concerned with how the storyline would blend; but the author did a fantastic job with the vampires while remaining true to the faith of the Amish. Will Hannah be able to accept what is true before it is too late? Will she be able to move forward and grab happiness with the man who loves her or will evil win her over? I highly recommend your reading the book to find out for yourself.
   I wish to thank Sourcebooks for providing me with a copy to read and review. I was not required to write a positive review, nor was I compensated in anyway except for receiving the book.

I give Plain Fear Forsaken 4.5 out of 5 stars
