About the Author
Toinette "Toi" Thomas was born and raised in Texas where she learned to appreciate the grandeur of things in life. She was raised by her loving parents, Dennis and Navonia, along with her older sister Tori. Growing up, Toi was a bit of a tomboy, but was not without poise and grace. She loved to play outside, to build and break things, to dance and write, and to read. She also loved to cook and by the time she was in third grade, Toi could prepare a full hot breakfast on her own. It was also during these early years that her love of movies and music developed. When Toi's family moved to Virginia, she was just eleven years old; soon, she would be a pre-teen and then a teenager. Toi always seemed to be very mature for her age and sometimes a little too serious for her peers, but she was a great conversationalist, especially if the topic was movies, music, or TV. During high school, Toi's literary interest began to expand. She started reading many classic stories such as the original plays of Peter Pan, novels such as To Kill a Mocking Bird, many works of Shakespeare and Edgar Allan Poe. When it was time for Toi to go off to college, she and her mother managed to find an in-state school that was far enough away from home, for her to have the true college experience. She attended what is now called The University of Virginia's College at Wise. It was there that Toi met her future husband, Eric Thomas. As if the fact that they both had the same last name wasn't enough to bring the two together, their mutual love of food, music, comic books, and movies was. Toi now works as a special education teacher's assistant in Virginia Beach. While Toi finds her job to be very rewarding, she never seems to let up on the other things she finds of interest in her life. Toi constantly bakes goodies and treats for friends and family, and makes an extra effort to assist with computer issues whenever she can. While Toi's love of movies will never fade, she also makes time to read a good book from time to time. It was in the fall of 2009 that Toi got the inspiration to write her first book. Her first novel is just one part of the whole story she plans to someday share with the world as, The Eternal Curse Series. Toi is also working on other stories outside of the EC series and has been actively blogging, interviewing, and reviewing for three years and sees no point in stopping any time soon.

I was happy to encounter characters from the first book in the series as well as meeting and exploring new ones. The reader needs to be prepared to be sad, and as the book opens with a major character's funeral. The theme of loss and conflict is woven throughout this epic saga.
As the author asks, “In the future, will all the petty problems of everyday life be fixed or will it all go down the tubes?” she discusses this deep and intriguing question is a way the entertains and with characters that compel readers to the end.
The story peeks into the lives of Giovanni and Mira fighting to save the world. But will the world they save be worth the effort. “Fixing it will simply have to wait,” writes author Toi Thomas.
This book paints a perplexing and vivid picture of the distant future, and great characyer development gives readers a terrific view of the far-from-idealic lives of Giovanni and Mira. As always jump starts a narrative look at life, a tragedy in Giovanni’s life sparks an introspective journey during which he will have to decide whether life with humans is worth fighting for, or in this futuristic universe, perhaps he should leave it all behind and follow a different path.
Thomas paints a world of diversity, in which an ensemble of “half-breed comrades” join humans in a battle with Giovanni’s greatest adversary: Marcos. “Blood, bone, and ash” aren’t the only things that will be left on the battlefield, with them will be readers own preconceptions, and while Toi Thomas’s distant future world may “never be the same,” it is likely neither will your own.
