What Reader's and Reviewers are Saying
"Above and beyond conventional vampire stories...The writing style is unusual and interesting...Sands of Time does not drag its way into boredom. The story is compelling enough to keep the reader turning the pages." -Lex Allen, Reader's Favorite
"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 Diva
"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 Amazon
"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 Tate
