Well Said: Believing


"Do you believe in the supernatural?"
"I'm a Christian. Believing in stuff I can't see or explain kind of goes with the territory."
Kiss of Night by Debbie Viguié is a Christian Fiction vampire novel. While I can definitely see how this quote might offend, for me it sort of rings true and I really think it helps set the tone of the novel.

  9. Huh, well, hmmm... I am a Christian, I do read Paranormal books, but I do not like Vampire books. I am just not sure about this (it wouldn't offend me though). I guess I'll have to see what you think of it when you read it.

  12. I got this one via NetGalley. I usually don't read Christian fiction, but I thought it sounded interesting. I think the cover is pretty, too! I wonder why vampire books would offend Christians? I went to Catholic school for 12 years and I'm an Episcopalian. I'm not offended, but to each his own. Looking forward to your review!

  19. Not sure how I feel about a Christian vampire novel. I know Tracey Bateman wrote one a few years ago called Thirst. I haven't read that one either. When I read Christian fiction I prefer to stick with contemporary or historical. I was not a fan of Crusade (Nancy Holder and Debbie Viguie) but I liked Debbie's fairytale retellings. That is a great teaser though and very true.

  27. Gina: Thank you! *high five*

    Tina & Joy: Can't wait for your thoughts. I love how it immediately starts with action.

    Julie: I think it's more the quote that offends. And I'm so with you, to each their own.

    Tipsy: Yes exactly!

    Christina T: I hope you will check back for my review Oct. 7th. I, like you, usually stick to historical CF but this one has a bit of everything: contemporary, historical, paranormal, and faith. It's rather good.

    Truly Bookish: Welcome welcome! I just visited your lovely blog. I look forward to your thoughts on this one.

    All: Thank you for commenting. This one definitely shakes things up.
