Review | The Hallowed Ones

The Hallowed Ones by Laura Bickle

"If your home was the last safe place on Earth, would you let a stranger in? 

Katie is on the verge of her Rumspringa, the time in Amish life when teenagers are free to experience non-Amish culture before officially joining the church. But before Rumspringa arrives, Katie's safe world starts to crumble. It begins with a fiery helicopter crash in the cornfields, followed by  rumors of massive unrest and the disappearance of huge number sof people all over the world. Something is out there...and it is making a killing. 

Unsure why they haven't yet been attached, the Amish Elders make a decree: No one goes outside their community, and no one is allowed in. But when Katie finds a gravely injured young man lying just outside the boundary of their land, she can't leave him to die. She refuses to submit to the Elders' rule and secretly brings the stranger into her community- but what else is she bringing in with him?"
