What I Thought:
This one was GREAT! If you prefer the old-time not sparkly vampires then you should really check this one out!
McAfee spins a wild tale about Jesus (yes, this is where I think the controversy could come in) and how he comes to be crucified. While it involves some strange storytelling I wouldn't call it anti-religious or anything. It's just a "twisted" version. (with evil vampires of course!)
33 A.D. was a really good read...not only because of the non-sparkling vampires (which I do love) but because hidden in this story was a message of keeping faith. Maybe not everyone would see that, but I certainly did. I recommend this one and I'll be checking out some of David's other work including The Lake and Say Goodbye To The Sun.
About The Book:
Jerusalem, 33 A.D. The vampires of the era have long sought to gain a foothold into Israel, but the faith of the local Jewish population has held them in check for centuries. When one of their own betrays them to follow a strange young rabbi from Galilee, the elders of the vampire race dispatch Theron, a nine hundred year old assassin, to kill them both.The rabbi's name is Jesus. Killing him should be easy.
