Book Reviews: No Less Days & From Sky to Sky by Amanda G. Stevens

No Less Days (No Less Days #1) by Amanda G. Stevens
Genre: Adult Fiction (Contemporary Christian)
Date Published: May 1, 2018
Publisher: Shiloh Run Press

David Galloway can’t die.

How many lifetimes can God expect one man to live? Over a century old, David Galloway isolates himself from the mortal humans who die or desert him by making a quiet life as a used bookstore owner in Northern Michigan. But then he spots a news article about a man who, like him, should be dead.

Daredevil celebrity Zachary Wilson walked away unscathed from what should have been a deadly fall. David tracks the man down, needing answers. Soon David discovers a close-knit group of individuals as old as he is who offer the sort of kinship and community he hasn’t experienced for decades—but at what cost?  

David finds himself keeping secrets other than his own. . .protecting more than himself alone. He’ll have to decide what’s worth the most to him—security or community. When crimes come to light that are older than any mortal, he fears the pressure is more than he can stand. What does God require of him, and is David strong enough to see it through?

No Less Days is the first book in the No Less Days series by Amanda G. Stevens. This one pulled me in in the beginning. It was something different, and i liked the premise quite a bit. However, it dragged in areas, and I found myself struggling to focus on their conversations. I enjoyed the characters, but I'd really like to learn more about them and how they can live so long. At one point, they mentioned something about accidentally turning someone into one of them, but this was never mentioned again. I'd like to know more about that as well as some other things. It certainly has me intrigued.

The ARC of  From Sky to Sky by Amanda G. Stevens was kindly provided to me by the publisher through Net Galley for review. The opinions are my own.

From Sky to Sky (No Less Days #2) by Amanda G. Stevens
Genre: Adult Fiction (Contemporary Christian)
Date Published: February 1, 2020
Publisher: Barbour Publishing

Zac Wilson can’t die.

Daredevil Zac Wilson isn’t the first celebrity to keep a secret from the world, but his might be the most marvelous in history: Zac doesn’t age and injuries can’t kill him. What’s more, he’s part of a close-knit group of others just like him.

Holed up in Harbor Vale, Michigan, Zac meets two more of his kind who claim others in their circle have died. Are their lifetimes finally ending naturally, or is someone targeting them—a predator who knows what they are?

The answers Zac unearths present impossible dilemmas: whom to protect, how to seek justice, how to bring peace to turmoil. His next action could fracture forever the family he longs to unite. Now might be the time to ask for help. . .from God Himself. But Zac’s greatest fear is facing the God he has run from for more than a century. 

From Sky to Sky is the second book in the No Less Days series by Amanda G. Stevens. I enjoyed getting to know Zac this time around. We also get to meet a few more new characters. I believe all these characters, well, maybe not all, but most of them have PTSD to some degree. They may live forever, but they are just surviving the best they know how with the traumas some of them have been through. I don't like the decision David has made. I knew he would probably want to go that route given the opportunity, but I hope it doesn't happen that way. Some say you don't have to read these books in order. I think you do, because so much happens in book one that sets the stage for book two. Hopefully, there will be a book three in the future too!
