Rabbit: Chasing Beth Rider by Ellen C. Maze is a unique entry in the vampire genre, portraying its characters as neither tortured romantics nor soulless bloodsuckers. Her Rakum are more of a race of lost people, embracing darkness or seeking Truth.

Rabbit: Chasing Beth Rider tells the story of a novelist, Beth Rider, who is targeted by the ancient race of blood drinkers, the Rakum, because her books have inadvertently caused dissent in the ranks of these vampire-like creatures. As she tries to survive, she finds friends, enemies and a far greater purpose awaits her.

This novel constructs an appealing plot, taking the reader in an uncommon direction. The author has effortlessly tied the modern vampire myth with Biblical teachings and Hebrew tradition to achieve a fascinating fictional folklore of her own. She has also managed to bring a great deal of spirituality and spark to a well-trodden horror sub-genre. Her characters are strong, determined and vividly depicted as the sides of good and evil are slowly drawn.

Although I did find some of the prose intermittently veered into the “tried and true” area for my taste, I was quite captivated by the book and look forward to reading more of Beth Rider and the Rakum in the author’s other books. Rabbit: Chasing Beth Rider is a stellar offering and a wonderful read.
