4.0 out of 5 stars science fiction good but ending leaves me cold, 23 Nov. 2010
This review is from: Afterlife: The Resurrection Chronicles (Mass Market Paperback)
Afterlife- the resurrection chronicles reads as a standalone books so i'm not sure where it comes in as a chronicle. This is Marrie Destefano's first fiction novel.
Maybe more books will be written by the author in the series but considering the ending which though positive leaves me cold I am unsure how you could squeeze in another book.
The plot itself is a very tightly written and comprehensive idea.

Chaz Dominguez is a Babysitter in New Orleans who spends a week with each person who jumps into their newly cloned body, he nurses them through their memories coming back of previous lives. In this book he is babysitting the mysterious Angelique who turns out to have a disturbing and interesting history that relates directly to his family.
Chaz's family runs the Fresh Start clinics headed by his brother Russell, they're in charge of the downloads of different lives to new bodies. The world they live in has no year just some unknown future date where the one world is dominated by people who move on through many different lives.
However the nine lifer scenario where many people at the end of their allowed nine lives is almost upon the world and the nine lifers do not want to go quietly. Angelique the mysterious newbie has some answers, but can they find them before it's too late?

Overall the book had many different narrartors which gave you a good look at the motivations of each character and an overview of the whole of the novel's world.
However i found that so many narrators left me uninvolved in the emotions of the main characters. Which can be a fatal flaw as it was a book i was rushing to the end of but i could of easily put down. I just wanted it to be finished so i could get onto another novel.
So while the writing wasn't bad and the story excellent i'm hopign the author writes something that involves me a bit more in the characters next time.
