Fabulously frightening! Insanely imaginative!
Hope Brannen has just met Mark Corescu, the man of her dreams. He’s handsome, charming, and he’s a doctor! He’s also a vampire. Not to worry, though. This vampire only sucks the blood of evil people because he believes he’s doing God’s will by punishing them for their sins. Hope and her pastor-friend, Tony, have some questions, though. Can murder ever be within God’s will? Is a vampire supposed to judge humanity’s sins? Or is Dr. Corescu simply rationalizing his need to kill?
Things heat up when Corescu starts hearing voices in his head and begins to remember who he was before he became a vampire. In the midst of all this, a certain reporter is beginning to ask questions and the doctor’s servants are starting to rebel.
Ellen Maze delivers an intriguing plot with captivating characters and an extremely natural writing style.
The Judging is a clean read with no objectionable material or language.
I give The Judging a recommendation of Excellent and will certainly look forward to reading the next installment in the Corescu Chronicles, Damascus Road, as well as Ellen’s earlier work.
