Making Sense Of The Insanity Of Moralities

Cristoph A. T. Author Interview

Re-birth tells the compelling story of Anessa’s reincarnation in the intriguing fantasy world of Anfang. What was the inspiration for the setup to your story?

I’ve been a fan of Mythology of almost every variety. As a child I was always intrigued by Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland and being pulled through to a new world.

Anessa is an intriguing and well-developed character. What were some driving ideals behind your character’s development?

Anessa is a logical view of what might happen to a western person should they be taken at the point of their death and placed on a new planet through divine intervention. She’s lost, confused, and must navigate a new world alone, forging new bonds, making sense of the insanity of moralities that are different from what knew she on Earth.

What were some themes that were important for you to explore in this book?

Our world is on the precipice of some vital changes to personal rights. Anfang represents an exploration of an ideal, and in future volumes I may tinker with how easily it can crumble.

The exception to this question is nobles using marriages to form bonds between families as chess pieces, but that is a component of medieval societies, not of a theme I wanted to explore.

When and where will your book be available?

Re-Birth will be available November 24, 2022, on Amazon in eBook, Paperback (black and white) and Hardback (full color). The eBook is on sale for $4.99 until 1/1/2023. The sale pricing for the paperback and hardback are beyond my control as I’ve already found out.

A Girl. A Goddess. A world of wonder.
For Anessa, death was just the beginning…

Originally from Earth, she finds herself transported to Anfang with one question:
“How did I die?”

Reborn into a family of wealth, privilege and magic, the expectations placed on her clash with her Earthen sensibilities.

As Anessa grows into her newfound place and power, she struggles with the notions of political marriages, inane rituals, and the awareness that her biggest threat may come from within.

Who do you trust when your first life was stolen by your best friend, and your latest sin is living?

Join Anessa on her debut journey in My Own Mythology — Re-Birth; get yours now!

Re-Birth

Re-birth, by Cristoph A. T., is the story of Anessa’s reincarnation on the world of Anfang. She was murdered on Earth, only to find herself a baby on Anfang and unsure of what’s going on. Through Anessa’s eyes, we learn about the world, people and gods of Anfang.

In reading Re-birth, I was introduced to a new world, new people, and new gods. I felt that they were well-rounded characters, even the minor ones that we didn’t see very much of. Christoph A. T. did a great job of showing us the world of Anfang through the eyes of someone who’s never been on this world. It was odd to start with a character who has just been born and can talk. But Anessa’s parents’ reaction works well for what’s going on.

This feels like an epic fantasy novel with a deep backstory that begs to be explored, but the novel is short and leaves readers wanting more. I got invested in the characters and the stories pretty early and then just as we get to some juicy stuff, the story ends. The first-person perspective worked well for this dramatic story, though there were parts where we were in someone else’s head, there were times where I found myself wishing I knew what other characters were thinking and feeling.

Re-birth tells a compelling story with intriguing characters in a well-conceived fantasy world. I can tell the author put a lot of thought into the world and readers who enjoy fantasy worlds that feel lived-in and intricate will enjoy this novel. I enjoyed the story and I’m desperate to read book two as this one left me wanting more.
