    I have mixed feelings about this ebook. I downloaded it for free from the authors website and have spent a few weeks going through it while on vacation. While I really wanted to love every moment of it (reincarnation, deep history, etc.) I just ended up confused more often than not. It was hard to keep up with who was who in each life, and I felt like each of the four lives covered were hardly even connected.

I started reading at 9:00 pm and didn’t put the book down til I was finished at 4:00 am. Maya has arrived at the pearly gates to discover that she’s not anywhere NEAR where she thought she was. She meets her spirit guide who explains to her that she’s got a couple things she needs to do first. Like understand what her lessons to learn have been and truly understand them. To see the journey of a soul through time and continents was beautiful. Through a series of 4 short stories we discover that Maya’s soul has been a priest, a slave, a mother and a well-to-do wife. Her soul has learned painful lessons on love and sacrifice from every experience and made her who she is now, but is she done? What more could she possibly need to know before reuniting with the ones she loves in eternal bliss? We saw 4 incarnations of her soul and know that there are at least 5 as she is now Maya, but we learn nothing of her life as Maya. Waters has spent countless hours researching the eras she writes about. The writing was amazing. I was transported throughout the world and had vivid images of the settings of all the stories. I was moved to tears in more than one story. In the end I didn’t feel preached to at all, but I did have a completely different perspective on what the afterlife might be like. I have to read Infinite Devotion (book #2) immediately! http://openbooksociety.com/article/in...

    Infinite Sacrifice is the first book in the series by L.E. Waters and the premise is fascinating. Waters clearly did her homework as she takes Maya through the ages in various forms. What you read is true to the time, and it shows. You know you're in Egypt when Maya is in Egypt. The writing is clean and direct with very little flourish. Historically, she is spot on and should be commended. The book deals with reincarnation and Waters offers her own feelings on the subject through her characters, Infinite Sacrifice is the first book in the series by L.E.

You know you're in Egypt when Maya is in Egypt. The writing is clean and direct with very little flourish. Historically, she is spot on and should be commended. The book deals with reincarnation and Waters offers her own feelings on the subject through her characters, flushing them out, trying to dig through the 'what ifs' as Maya tries to decide whether or not her journey should end, or if she should continue the path. I enjoyed the stories within the story and the guides at the end of each story were helpful. I would have given 5* had it not been for a few issues I had when reading the book. I felt both the prologue and the epilogue were unnecessary and took away more than they complimented. After reading the epilogue, especially, I felt as if I'd read a few short stories and they were being tied up neatly for me by some editor, leaving very little room for excitement for the second installment. I think the epilogue could have been broken up into smaller pieces at the end of each of the four stories, and it would have blended seamlessly. The way it appears at the end feels jarring and anti-climatic. Overall, Infinite Sacrifice is not only a great read laced with committed characters and vivid scenery. As a huge fan of historical fiction, I'd recommend this novel.

    Wow, wow, wow. This novel is now one of my all-time favorite books. I don't know where to begin. The premise of this story is one of a kind. A story about a woman who must reincarnate until she learn's life's most important lessons is genius. And L.E. Waters makes the story very believable. This first book begins in ancient Egypt and continues until the Black Plague in London. It is very clear that she has done her research yet she weaves the background info seamlessly into the story.

There are no info dumps or endless facts aout a certain time period. It's like you're really there, and you end up learning a lot about history without meaning to. I think a lot of people, especially history buffs, will like the story just because of how you're learning and enjoying the story at the same time. L.E. Waters also creates awesome characters you care for. You know they're going to die, but it still shocks you. I had to hold back tears several times throughout the book. These characters will be etched into my mind for a long time. This is the kind of series you'll want to read over and over again. And wish there was a movie, too.I should also mention that the book also has some adult themes in there but nothing graphic. Overall, this is a very well-written book. The author has a true gift for words. She is a master storyteller. Be prepared to lose sleep when reading this book because you won't be able to put it down. Gotta go read the second book, Infinite Devotion, now!

I love the tiny details of a story that make it complete. Infinite Sacrifice is about all those small details, so I was in heaven! When L.E. Waters contacted me for a review, I was supremely intrigued by the blurb. Reincarnation will always fascinate me, then she succinctly pointed out out that one life involves vikings. Now, they are Dane's not Norwegian, but vikings are vikings so I was even more interested. With that said, I was mildly hesitant only because I wasn't sure how all the lives were going to be combined into one soul without confusion (that's what I get for reading reviews prior to reading a book, I usually read them after I've read the story because I don't like going into a book with preconceived notions). I was wrong to be hesitant, so very wrong! I was quickly entranced by the writing style as I partook in this unique, fascinating adventure. L.E. Waters captures scenery and dialogue with such ease that it's easy to picture in your head, everything rolls naturally. No stilting, no rushing, no forcing. There are a lot of details to take in as we visit four of Lazrina's (soul name) lives, but I found those details to be easy to keep track of (see, preconceived notion that it would be confusing). It wasn't confusing in the least, but then again, I pride myself on having an eye for those kind of details. Any small details, really. Also, L.E. Waters graciously supplies a chart at the end of each life to help the reader keep track of who was who within those four lives. It also helps that we visit each life one after the other without unnecessary spacing. It helps keep the people, or rather their souls, fresh in the readers mind. It also helps that each soul has at least one thing that helps identify them with each new life. You'll see once you read the book. The concept was well-crafted, tightly woven together so there weren't any gaping holes. Everything fit together perfectly, like matching puzzle pieces. I cannot even imagine how much time went into Infinite Sacrifice, between the researched history and piecing together the lives of not only one person, but the supporting characters as well. It's really four mini stories rolled into a bigger story where everything ties together to make a compelling tale about the lessons a soul learns throughout their existence. I loved piecing together the tiny pieces to figure out who was positive, negative or neutral, but all influencing Lazrina's soul. One of the best parts is that L.E. Waters delivers history in a factual sense. She didn't romanticize it, which I greatly appreciated. She wrote about the ways of each life, never masking the ugly with pretty words to disguise the harsh facts. If you betrayed a law, you were killed. If you were a slave, you were owned, with few (if any) sympathizing with you. If you were a female, you had no power, often judged by who you married, owned by the man you married. The harsh realities of history were in your face, and I liked that! If you enjoy history, read Infinite Sacrifice. If you enjoy reincarnation, read Infinite Sacrifice. If you want a unique, one-of-a-kind story, read Infinite Sacrifice. Or how about you just read Infinite Sacrifice? It's an absolutely amazing story! And, lucky for us, Infinite Devotion (the second book) is already out!

She has a great explanation website http://laurenwaters.net/. Go to the Historical Info tab which will help understand the various reincarnated lives in this book. SYNOPSIS As the Spirit Guide Zachariah leads, Maya must recall past lives before being allowed to move forward to either being reincarnated again or ending the journey. What has Maya learned from past lives is the true question. HISTORY: This book is labeled as a reincarnation fantasy saga. Let's see. We have the life as a male Egyptian priest; a Spartan young woman, a Irish young boy captured by Vikings and a young English woman during the times of the Black Plague. HUMOR: Very little humor as the book concentrates more on looking at past lives. FAVORITE PART: Depends on what time period that you enjoy. Personally I enjoyed the Irish boy sent to (I think Denmark ? perhaps) Viking land. He did return briefly to his home and what he did there totally floored me. Noooo, I will not tell you because it will ruin the story. LEAST FAVORITE PART: Dialogue with the spirit guide in the beginning and the end of the book. Some books have "too" much descriptive content and very little dialogue. Some books have "too" much dialogue and very little descriptive content. Both are quite boring when one or the other is overemphasized. As with this book, there are pages and pages and pages of a conversation between the Spirit Guide and the reincarnated person. Boring. YOU WILL LIKE THIS BOOK IF YOU LIKE: Reincarnation, History RATING: 3/5 Jeep JeepDiva Vroom Vrooms and a Sputter. From a historical perspective the book was fantastic. From a writing perspective, the book had too much dialogue and conversation between characters. I would have liked to read more action with the adventures.

    Not a cohesive book If you are looking for a book with a definable beginning, middle and end, this isn't it. This is a series of short, poorly characterized vignettes that lack any cohesive element aside from the author "telling" you that they are a single person's past lives. I wanted to like this but the lack of any narrative elements to tie the stories together made this nothing more than an awkward collection of stories that do not promise on a "theme" of "infinite sacrifice".

She is keen to be reunited with others she has lost but instead finds herself at the start of a journey, lead by her spirit guide Zachariah. Before she is able to move on she has to review her past lives and show she understands the lessons each incarnation should have taught her. This is the start of a series and in this book Maya relives pasts as a High Priest in ancient Egypt, a Spartan mother hiding a secret, a young Irish boy captured by Vikings and a Doctor's wife in plague-ridden London. She must prove she has learnt one of the important lessons before experiencing more of her past lives. In each story there are other characters who re-appear, recognisable by minor physical characteristics. I have to admit I was both impressed and slightly concerned by the foreword. The author has a website which includes more detailed research about the facts behind the work, which I thought was a real positive, but it also mentioned that to prevent confusion from the intricate character histories there was a chart at the end of each life to help identify the characters. This sounded a bit disconcerting, being told up front I might struggle to keep up! As it happens I found that I was able to identify the main characters with no real problems and didn't need to keep trying to refer to the charts at all. I really enjoyed this book. I'm a fan of historical fiction anyway and the idea of reincarnation is of interest, so I found this an interesting meld of the two. By the time I got to the end I was so engrossed with the progress through history that I'd almost forgotten about the context holding the stories together. Each life was full of interesting little details and mostly I was able to identify approximately where and when the life was unfolding without too much prompting from the author. Some of Maya's incarnations are more likeable than others but each has a good story to tell. This was a very good read that made me think, and I thought the magical realism surrounding Maya's arrival in "heaven" and how the process she finds herself going through works was well handled where it could have been fudged. I would definitely read the next in the series, Infinite Devotion.

    LOVED THIS BOOK! I downloaded this free from BookBub. As I reached the end of the book, I didn't want it to end, so I downloaded both books 2 and 3 of this series.

While the author creates a helpful chart at the end of each "life" to reveal who each person had been in the prior life (mother in one life, her child in another,etc), it was confusing to keep track. The author gives each person a distinct eye color and some other small mark (like a scar), yet it was hard to remember who was who. I found myself not worrying if Maya's husband had just been her son in the life before. Instead I just enjoyed the story of each life, then referred to the chart afterwards. The author did a great job of seamlessly inserting these marks and eye colors into the story, so it was not distracting at all. However, if she had given each character more varied traits - speech problems, making a particular hand gesture, etc - then it may have been easier to follow. Having a scar on the forehead for one character and a scar on the arm of another was too similar for me to keep track of. I know it sounds like I am going on and on about the traits but that is thread to links all of these characters to each other through each life. I can't wait to read the next books in the series!!

    I found the concept of this book very interesting, so I downloaded it with high hopes. I nearly didn't finish, because I found the prologue to be rather pretentious. The author is basically explaining what's going to happen and for whatever reason, the style it was written in just rubbed me the wrong way. However, I couldn't to the beginning of the story, where we relive the soul's first life and I was immediately hooked. I'm very glad I didn't give up on it right away, because everything after I found the concept of this book very interesting, so I downloaded it with high hopes.

I'm very glad I didn't give up on it right away, because everything after the prologue was awesome. The only thing that irritated me about it is that it doesn't actually end. I knew it was meant to be the first in the series but I had assumed, incorrectly, that we would finish with one soul and the next book would be about another. Not so. She gets partway through reliving her past lives and then takes a break and then I guess everything after takes place in the next book. Which I now have to go buy, because I can't just leave it hanging like that. I know there's at least three books in the series....here's hoping it doesn't take that long to get to a resolution on this one soul. Also, a tip for anyone who wants to read this: If possible, get a print copy. There are numerous supporting characters that show up repeatedly as we go through the past lives. The author provides handy charts to keep track of who each person reincarnates as. However, in ebook format, this is not so easy to review if you can't memorize all the defining marks of each character. I couldn't. I think it would have been easier if I'd had a paper copy.

    Infinite Sacrifice was a great novel. It was interesting to hear about all of Maya's past lives. The book made me reflect and wonder, if I had past lives, what would they have been like? I liked watching Maya mature throughout her reincarnations. In her first life, when she was a male priest, she was a jerk. She thought only of herself and her mistress. In her second life, a Spartan wife and mother, she matured a bit. She put one of her son's needs above hers. She was still a jerk though. Her ot Infinite Sacrifice was a great novel.

Her third life, as an Irish-man turned Viking, she sacrificed herself to be with her son in the afterlife. This is where we see the biggest change in Maya's soul. In her fourth life, as a doctor's wife, she sacrifices her relationship with her husband and mother to help children she didn't know. She also helped take care of a lot of people that had the plague. My favorite character throughout Maya's lives was Gunhilda. I loved her kick butt attitude. No one was going to tell her what to do. Even though she was a woman, she fought better than most men. Gunhilda became a very valuable asset to the Vikings during the war. This book was phenomenal. I loved it. I can't wait to read the sequel, Infinite Devotion, and find out more about Maya's past lives. I recommend this book to anyone who likes stories about reincarnation, spirituality, or second chances.

    I bought this book for little to nothing on a daily Kindle deal. I have always been interested in what others think or believe about reincarnation and what happens when we die. So I had already been exposed to the spiritual ideas in this book.

It was not a literary kind of book at all. It was not boring or repetitive so that I wanted to put it down. But it did not enthrall me, either. It's the first book in a series and I most likely will not be reading the rest of the series.

    A fun idea, but poor execution. I finished it just for the historical aspects, but was a little disappointed to see that Waters used ring around the rosie as a plague song, when it didn't appear in any written literature until the late 1800s -- now I'm not sure I trust any of the historical aspects.

    Okay, two problems with this book: (1) It is mostly a string of short stories (and I personally don't much like short stories - but if you do, then this is not a problem); and (2) the last chapter is a lecture on the author's concept of God and religious concepts - something I really didn't need or appreciate. Each story deals with a different time in human history, which I did find interesting. It's written well, just absolutely not my cup of tea.

    Interesting story and the premise of reincarnation, the afterlife and spirituality. The stories and the history of the characters and how they all intertwine throughout the ages was engaging. Looking forward to reading the next in the series.

Each of these are written in such detail to both history and character, I actually heard myself say "WOW!" as I read. Ms. Waters is such a talented author, I was blown away by her ability to pen beautiful literary prose while at the same time creating these stories-within-a-story which let my imagination time travel with her characters through history. Ms. Waters includes a chart at the end of each section to make it easy to keep up who is who during each time period, and I must admit I had fun seeing which ones I guessed correctly. This reader is looking forward to the rest in the series, and I can't wait to learn more about Maya and her past lives, especially the last one. Her spirit guide has me quite intrigued because I get the feeling he has been a part of Maya's history, and there are hints that her last experience on earth were troubled. I highly recommend this book!

    A unique premise and excellent writing made this book an intriguing read. While I didn't bother to follow the schematic after each fascinating and fully realized life to see which person incarnated into which role, I may go back and read it again with the schematic in mind. The first read was enjoyable in and of itself. The characters were vivid individuals whose choices made perfect psychological sense. The historical details were unique to the circumstances of the main characters, details that A unique premise and excellent writing made this book an intriguing read.

The first read was enjoyable in and of itself. The characters were vivid individuals whose choices made perfect psychological sense. The historical details were unique to the circumstances of the main characters, details that only historians specializing in that era would ordinarily know. Clearly the writer did her research and was very discerning in choosing the exact particulars that would tie the character to their time period and breathe life into them and their history. Looking forward to reading the next book in the series.

    The premise is unusual: the afterlife is not simply Heaven, but the opportunity to review all of one's previous lives, with the assistance of one's own spirit guide. This book reviews Maya's/Lazrina's (her name in her just-past life/her spirit's name) first four lives. From ancient Egypt, to classical Sparta, to early medieval Ireland, to late medieval England, Lazrina alternates genders but maintains key traits (a mole on her left hand, prophetic dreams), accompanied by a number of significant The premise is unusual: the afterlife is not simply Heaven, but the opportunity to review all of one's previous lives, with the assistance of one's own spirit guide.

From ancient Egypt, to classical Sparta, to early medieval Ireland, to late medieval England, Lazrina alternates genders but maintains key traits (a mole on her left hand, prophetic dreams), accompanied by a number of significant others, also maintaining distinct traits. In the framing story, her progress is reviewed, the relationships among the others in her "soul group" and the issues each needs to face are hinted at. A provocative book: I look forward to the next installment!

    Infinite Sacrifice is book one in the Infinite Series. I was pleasantly surprised by this book. The book quickly catches your attention right from the beginning. I had never thought I would enjoy historical fiction however, it is written in such a way that it flows within the story and is very realistic. She must travel back thru her past lives in order to move ahead and rejoin the ones she loves on the other side. This book is a great spin on the afterlife.

I really enjoyed the stories and thought it was greatly written. The epilogue to me was a little confusing, but others may find it interesting. I felt it hard to put the book down and would definitely recommend it. I give it 4 out of 5 stars.

    Most of the time, when I've seen "Free" next to a book's cover image, I've been subsequently disappointed by the content (or lack thereof) beyond that point. However, Ms. Waters has done a fairly good job of crafting a story that held my interest, even though I wasn't too sure I was going to enjoy it based on the synopsis.

Good show Ms. Waters, good show.

    AMAZING...simply amazing! Looking foe a GREAT read? You can't go wrong with the Infinite Series. I couldn't get enough. I was held spell-bound, heart racing, breath holding, left wanting more. After reading the first book, Infinite Sacrifice, I immediately went back and bought the second book! Waiting impatiently for the third book now. The author, L.E. Waters brings you right in with the characters. I could envision everything clearly as I stood at the side lines watching as the events unfolded AMAZING...simply amazing! Looking foe a GREAT read?

    What a crazy book!! I thought it might be overwhelming and confusing but it was not at all. Each story was seperate, but they are intermingled in a delicate way. Very well written, thought out, and crafted. I loved reading this book and was sad that it didn't take me as long as I thought it would!! I can't wait to get into the rest of the series!! Funny thing, I started a different book afterwards and found myself trying to put those charectars in this story as well!! It's a hard on to turn off, What a crazy book!!

    After you die for the last time, you meet your spirit guide. At this point you relive moments of all your past lives.

    The plot had so much potential and sounded so interesting but I was really disappointed. I found myself so bored and not even wanting to read on and finish the book. The characters weren't all that exciting and I got very confused at times when trying to remember who people were and how they connected to the previous lives. The author obviously put a lot of time into researching the different eras but I just think it lacked excitement and failed to draw me into each life.
