The story is compelling enough to keep the reader turning the pages." -Lex Allen, Reader's FavoriteUNIQUE"This is truly not a typical vampiric read and I wish I could give it more than five stars. I can't wait for the release of the second book and I applaud this author's ingenuity." -The Voluptuous Book DivaWELL WRITTEN"There is some commonality with the lore of vampires [found in] Anne Rice's Vampire Chronicles, yet [Ms. Church's] vampires have an alternate origin that incorporates theories of the purpose of the great pyramids and how they were built. The story thankfully lacks the angst of Stephanie Meyers' Twilight series and has much better writing than what I've read in those and related supernatural romance books about vampires." -Meribast AmazonBELIEVABLE"I found the characters in Sands of Time to be believable, real and each motivated by their own truths. I genuinely cared about them all, including Yin (wait till you meet him) and could see why they behaved in the way that they did." -Fiona TateFAVORITE QUOTES"My favorite quotes:"Love never offers easy answers. But it guides our heart and the decisions we make and there is no way of knowing if that decision is right or wrong."… (more)

It's surely quite particular. Almost a collection of short stories with the same main character and set during different ages. It's a union between history, fiction and myth, everything linked by an unusual escamotage: the author simulates the publication of ancient scripts translated from an enigmatic language into English.
The ideas regarding the vampires are quite original, and the origins of this race are interesting to discover.
Even though I enjoyed enough the reading, I think that the book is a bit short, without a real ending and because of the frequent changings of setting and characters it's difficult growing fond of them.

I received a free copy of the book in exchange for a review.

Finally someone with Lord Akeldama's point of view! This intermittently follows the trials and tribulations of one of the original vampires of earth, and it is a fascinating read! It is rather short, but that's a lot better than some of those epic length tomes that really don't keep one's interest. The view is different, the characterizations are complex, and the reader's interest is held to the end and beyond. ( )
