Lilith awakens in a strange and mysterious world…
Earth—a place full of wonder and terror alike. The life around her calls to her for aid, but there is something holding her back. A man wants her as his, and she can’t deny the fact that she wants the same. But life teaches her a valuable lesson early on in her existence: no one can have everything.
Will Lilith’s instinct to care for a vulnerable world outshine her desire for the man she longs for?
Only her enlightening journey through the ages will tell, and only then will she discover her true purpose through the trials of magic and sacrifice.

Readers’ Favorite Gives 5 Stars to Red Sand!
"Yes, I understood the natural world despite their horrific dispositions. I respected that they had only instincts to guide them. A simple purpose to fulfill: survive. But wasn’t knowing that fact what kept us from living in such a way? The fact that we knew the difference? The fact that we could be better? People were content acting like wild beasts, it seemed. That saddened me. They could have been so much more. Perhaps they still could." In Red Sand (The Creations Series, Book 1) by Anne MacReynold, the immortal Lilith constantly finds that existing on Earth has its wonders but also terrors; love and hate, trust and betrayal, life and death. Can she find her true purpose and guide humanity to its highest potential?
The combination of Jewish folklore, The Alphabet of Ben Sira, and the Greek mythology of Troy as the foundation of the plot is deftly done. I’m more familiar with the fictionalized versions of Lilith where she’s often envisioned as an unsympathetic, dangerous being. MacReynold's Lilith in Red Sand is undoubtedly fascinating and much more complex. This is a different and interesting take on Lilith’s tale including how Eve and Adam came to be. The different views of Lucifer and Lilith regarding life are intriguing, and how she handles and feels about immortality are at times poignant to read. Her genuine hope to lead humans to the right path is admirable. Simply put, this is a great start for The Creations Series and I look forward to the continuation of Lilith’s journey.
Powerful and beautiful. Love this book. Love Lilith and the journey she travels. Can’t wait for more!
BEST BOOK EVER!!!
I loved how the author mixed mythology and history to make their own unique story. I haven’t read anything else like it! I can’t wait to read Anne’s next book!
