Sands of Time: Fate of the True Vampires is a short novella that packs a mighty punch. Author Christine Church delivers a whole new spin on the world of vampires and executes it perfectly. The writing style holds only a few things in common with traditional vampire lore but even then, those details have their original twist to them.
This novella is written in "diary format" which isn't usually my favorite but works out well to skip through various stages of time that Kesi is writing in, without feeling like the reader is missing out. Furthermore, as Kesi's entries are written in different time periods, the dialect and vocabulary changes as well, pulling the reader in and making them feel as if they are in that period with her. Sands of Time appeared to be free of grammatical, spelling, and punctuation errors. It also has excellent use of vocabulary adding to the feeling of skipping through time.
I would recommend this novella to anyone looking for an original vampire piece. The Sands of Time: Fate of the True Vampires contains romance, a hint of mystery, and a bit of action. Although it does have an abrupt ending, it just makes the reader want to rush to the next book. Also, there are no explicit scenes in this book so I would recommend for anyone 16+.
Overall, I must give Sands of Time: Fates of the True Vampires a rating of 4 out of 4 stars. I give this rating because it is original, exciting, and has excellent use of vocabulary, it has romance yet a bit of action. This is a novella I could not put down and would highly recommend to others.
