The book takes place in the alternative universe where everyone has what is called a Firstlife. Firstlife is considered the life you start out when entering the world. Than during your life you have to choose where you will end up in the afterlife. In the afterlife there is two realms Myriad and Troika. The both realms are at war and anyone who is entering the aft life must choose a side. Those that haven’t made a chance end up in the darkness of Many Ends. A place you wouldn’t want to end up.

In the story a girl named Tenly also known as Ten refuses to choose a side that her parents want her be so in order to teach her a lesson they send her to an asylum. There she must try to survive and fight for her right to make a choice on where she should end up. At the same time two agents from both realms are sent to convince her to chooses their side. Ten turns out to be a challenge and goes on the lamb. Throughout the story she learns more about the realms and about her safe.

My Thoughts

The book turned out to be way better than I originally thought and got to be one of her best so far. After reading her other series “The White Rabbit Chronicles” I wanted to read more from her. Firstlife was super interesting to the point that I knew I should read this. One of my favorite parts of the books is the afterlife part having realms where you can go to. Usually afterlife in books is just heaven but Firstlife was unique twist. I also like the two male characters Killian and Archer who are the agents sent to convince Ten to join their sides. I like the the interaction between both characters. From the bad boy Killian to self-righteous Archer who comes across as a knight in shining army.  And Ten is a bad ass heroine that does whatever it takes to have the freedom to run her own life. This is something that many people can relate to. I totally recommend this book who like action dystopian type of books with a element of fantasy as well.

Sands of Time: Fate of the True Vampires (Volume 1) by Christine Church Book Review

The Sands of Time: Fate of the True Vampires Series by Christine Church

Buy the Sands of Time: Fate of the True Vampires (Volume 1) on Amazon. Can be found in paperback or e-book.

I read many book with vampires that have similar themes. Love triangles, vampire cops, vampire wars with lycans, vampires that fall in love with humans and vampires that are many evil. Today I read Sands of Time: Fate of the True Vampires (Volume 1) by Christine Church. This book is unique in the way it was writing and the point of view from an ancient vampire like woman.

In Sands of Time: Fate of the True Vampires (Volume 1), the books is a collection of journals that show the story of a woman named Kirsa. Kerisa is from Ancient Egypt is a part of a immortal race that sucks blood. They have powers and can live forever. Kersa is unable to make more others like herself or create children. The book also surrounds her story as she lives through the centuries from losing someone she lost, trying to save someone from her race and searches to find ways to create children. This book interesting and fresh. I also found the style of writing likeable and different from the fact its a journal type of book. When you read you will noticed blend of mystery, and historical elements throughout that expand through centuries.The book is great for anyone looking for a quick book to read since its extremely shout but still holds a strong developed story to carry you on.
