The cover of this book fascinates me. It shows the infinity symbol against clouds and has to be one of the most beautiful book covers I’ve ever seen. I began reading Infinite Sacrifice last night and was so caught up in the stories that I couldn’t put it down. This is historical fantasy, and the author has really done her homework. I felt I was actually standing on the dusty roads of past civilizations, staring into the faces of real people. My favorite story is the entangled one with the twin brothers, Theodon and Arcen, and their sister Kali, but I don’t want to give away any spoilers (except to say I didn’t see the plot twists coming at all). Well done. A good book to curl up with on a cold winter day.
I’m a Michael Patrick Lewis fan. This is the third book of his I’ve read. He’s a talented writer who mixes both philosophical and very human insights (or in this case aliens) with a sharp writing style. His characters are always so real, both likeable and flawed, they almost jump off the page. I really enjoyed the Edge of God. It’s definitely a soul book with spiritual yearning at its heart. The rich stew of musings about every aspect of life, often tongue in cheek, at times almost tripped up the storyline for me, but the adventure was always intelligent and wildly entertaining. I look forward to the next book.
