Montgomery, AL, December 01, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- Steeped in the tradition of John Polidori’s The Vampyre and Bram Stoker’s Dracula, Ellen C. Maze’s new novel, Rabbit: Chasing Beth Rider, published by Outskirts Press, offers the discerning reader a new take on the age-old evil of the accursed “undead.” Ms. Maze unabashedly brings together faith and bloodlust as the ancient race of bloodthirsty immortals fight for their “un-lives” and try to stave off their own unwanted redemption.
Jack Dawn is a real life vampire who belongs to the malicious race of Rakum that have been spreading evil throughout mankind since the “Beginning,” but bestselling author Beth Rider has inadvertently triggered his vicious hate with the release of her new successful novel. Jack Dawn sees that her book’s message of redemption is a deadly threat to his kind, and he decides she must die.
However, when Jack’s proselyte, Michael Stone contacts the beautiful and otherwise innocent novelist, he cannot understand his Elder’s unreasonable orders. At a hundred and thirty years old, Michael is old enough to appreciate his newly quiet and orderly life, and he takes it upon himself to protect young Beth Rider from the insatiable lust and evil of his vampiric brethren.
So proceeds this suspenseful tale through to its climactic final battle where Beth, a simple young novelist at heart, intends to have her way with every Rakum who makes the right choice. She has by then consciously taken on what had started fictionally in her book as a push for the redemption of this powerful and cursed race; but in real life she will now not back off from trying to make that salvation come true.
Rabbit: Chasing Beth Rider follows in the two hundred year tradition of vampire literature, but also springs creatively from Ellen Maze’s own take on this fascinating, ancient lore. Her website, rabbitnovel.com, offers other lovers of vampire fiction more information about the book, current contests, scheduled book signings by the author, and introductions to Maze’s five other works, the four Corescu Chronicles and The Tale of Jane Frost.
