I loved this book! It was very eye-opening and I think more girls ought to read it.

Looking for a great heart to heart with a girl who gets true love? Want to know how to get text messages from God? Escaping the Vampire takes a look at what girls love about the Twilight series and compares that to our human desire for an Immortal Hero. This book is filled with true-life stories from girls, advice on how to deal with life, and truth about the best love story ever lived.

I’ll admit, this book wasn’t what I thought it would be. I expected a book like Beth Felker Jones’ Touched by a

A review by Adam B.R. Clarke

When I was first asked to read over Escaping the Vampire by Kimberly Powers, I will say that I was excited. Right away, the connection to Twilight was unmistakable, the font type, the image bearing likeness to the forbidden fruit on the cover of the hugely popular series (hands holding a snow white rose). Being a fan of the relevance of Twilight, and
the influence it has had on the generation at large, I was ready to jump in and read it.
It took me two days.

However, aft

This book was great. I loved it, and while reading it I learned a lot about myself and a lot about God. If you are like me and you've grown up in a Christian home for your entire life, none of what the author says is new or mind-blowing, but the way she presents many of these truths, with story after story of how it is true in young woman's lives is really compelling. I loved the twilight series when I was younger, but now I can't stand it. But that doesn't mean I don't long for someone just lik ...more

It really is better than a 3 star book...it's just that I'm already there! This book is great for a teen girl that is struggling with who she is; looking for someone to love and someone to love her. This is for the girls who are so caught up in Edward (which...by the way, I loved the book but I also have a loving husband, and Edward is F.A.K.E.!)that they shun the rest of the world, or compare all the guys out there to Edward. While she was spot on as to why I may have enjoyed the books...and th ...more

This is a great book for teens who are seeking for the right kind of relationships they want to make. I wanted it to tell me why I am so fascinated with Vampires only to have it tell me what I already knew. Kimberly Powers compares the powerful mysterious creature to that of the bad boy we sometimes fall for because we are missing God's love from our lives. God is also powerful and mysterious which she explains why we are so enraptured by the blood suckers. This makes sense and I'll admit that i ...more

It's clearly meant for young girls; which, I am not. I also did not fall into the Twilight craziness that most women & girls did. Barring those "obstacles", I think it's a sweet book that has the potential to speak to tweens and teens about their identity in Christ. I wouldn't say it's a life changer, but it's definitely a good start!

It is a freebie and I am curious. I think the next in the series will be escaping the zombies. ;p
