Welcome to my little corner of the Blog hop. Read my review or scroll on down and read a short story.
Nathaniel Taylor was a Christian who thought believers were exempted from “dark times.” That was until he entered his own long time in the dark. When he meets Lilly, a young woman in danger, it sends him on a journey to discover the difference between night and day and that during dark times, the Light is hidden, not gone.
Ms. Lee has crafted what I would have to call the Christian version of Twilight. A Christian Vampire who thinks he has been cursed and forgotten by God. Meet’s a young lady who can smell a person’s soul those with a relationship with God smell clean and sweet those without smell rotten. She keeps telling Nathaniel that he smells sweet and clean. He can’t understand how a God forsaken monster such as he could smell anything but rotten. When another of his kind shows up in town and at Lilly’s house Nathaniel becomes her protector as they run for her life. Can he resist the love he feels for Lilly or will her inner light draw him out of the darkness? How can he a rage filled monster be in love with this innocent believer? Is their love doomed to the dark just like Nathaniel is or can their love be the answer to stepping back into the light for Nathaniel?
I loved this tale. It was full of action and enough paranormal activity to make the most diehard supernatural fan applaud. Yet it was completely Christ centered. A Christ centered Vampire book. Who would have thought it was possible? Apparently Melissa Turner Lee did. This book shows that Christians go through rough and dark times too. It makes you rethink what you know to be evil and is very centered on the Choice that all people make daily to walk with God in the Light of Salvation or slink in the darkness of sin and despair. Lilly is a joy to read about so innocent and sweet and Nathaniel is the monster you want to see redeemed. Because even though he has fangs and can’t walk in the sunlight you find yourself cheering for him and praying for redemption for this monster with a righteous soul. The Difference Between Night and Day is a romance not only of girl and monster but of God and lost. A great valentines day read and perfect for those girls (or guys) who are suffering from twilight withdraw. Sorry though this vampire doesn’t “sparkle”
