Publisher's Summary

Maya's shocked to discover it's not the heaven she imagined; in fact, a life of adventure begins the moment you die. Zachariah, her faithful spirit guide, explains the rules of the dead: in order to regain complete awareness and reunite with loved ones, all souls must review their previous lives.

Maya plunges warily into her turbulent pasts as a sociopathic High Priest in ancient Egypt; an independent mother protecting a dangerous secret in glorious Sparta; an Irish boy kidnapped and enslaved by Vikings; and a doctor's wife forced to make an ethical stand in plague-ridden England.

All the while, Maya yearns to be with those she cares about most, and worries that she hasn't learned all of heaven's most vital lessons. Will she be forced to leave the tranquility of heaven to survive yet another painful and tumultuous life? Or worse, accept the bitter reality of having to go back alone?

    "didn't want it to end"

    At first I was a little put off by how the story started. But that didn't last long. Well put together and deep. Halfway though I started to see the pattern. Just get it, and sit back and listen. It's worth it.

    "Hard to Follow"
    What disappointed you about Infinite Sacrifice?

    This book keeps dragging on. It was very hard to stay interested in it.


    What was most disappointing about L. E. Waters’s story?

    Hard to keep up with who is from when unless I took notes to remember. It was hard to keep up with, and stay interested in. I got to where I just didn't want to listen any more.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Jessica Peterson?

    I am not sure if a different narrator would have made any difference?


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I like the idea of the book, just hard to know who was who in each life.


    Any additional comments?

    Very disappointed, I wanted to like this book, but it just didn't keep me wanting to know what happens next.

    Story
    "Why?"

    This first volume is a collection of short stories--each story is one of the main character’s previous lives as it passes through chronological history. The author did quite a lot of research to support her evolving characters; that's supported by her web site, which helps interpret some of the story in historical context. The main character changes and evolves through time. Since she cannot remember each life as she goes, lessons take a while to sink in, and sometimes you can’t really see how she learns. At the end of each life, a summary of physical characteristics of each character is given--why?. Often, the reader is confused about the themes expected by the author and I felt like each of the four lives were hardly even connected. They connect, but not in the way that the author expects. It all ties up at the end of the book. With that, Waters has piqued my interest for her next book.

    Story
    "You left me hanging."

    Each lifetime told well enough. Spirit guide explained it would be hard to see it all again, but author didn't deliver on any of the soul's struggle through the lifetime reviews...and then at the end the reader was just left there without anything to go on or look forward to.
    I was left disappointed instead of looking forward to more.
