Book Description

Party girl Meg Highbury wakes up the morning after her twenty-first birthday with one hell of a hangover—and a walking corpse in her apartment. Meg turns to her straight-laced neighbor Armando for help, and together they discover that Meg is a Valkyrie. What’s more, her first duty is to trade places with the corpse.

But Meg is being sent to her Death Duty too soon. In a race against time, Meg frantically tries to find a loophole to avoid her gruesome fate, but while Meg is determined to live whatever the cost, Armando's strict moral principles keep getting in the way of her plans for escape.

Can Meg walk the “right” and narrow path, possibly sacrificing her mortal life, for love? And if she can, will Armando have the stomach to love a rotting corpse of a girl who is falling apart in more ways than one?

5.0 out of 5 stars Remarkable Debut Novel July 16, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This first novel by Kristi Jones is a great urban fantasy with an underlying romantic element. I'm totally drawn to supernaturally orientated work so this book was a very enjoyable read over the last few days and found myself wondering when I could steal moments from my day to finish it.

After the first few chapters the author found her stride and took off running delivering a story that was interesting, descriptive, funny, gruesome and just totally enjoyable. I didn't find it too gory but on occasions found myself pondering over whether I could do the things Armando did for Meg.

The story races to an intense conclusion and then sets it up for a sequel. I highly recommend this book and anxiously await the second novel. Kristi Jones is a phenomenal addition to the paranormal genre!

4.0 out of 5 stars The Corpse Goddess August 20, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Fun, funny, mysterious, gruesome and original work by Kristi Jones that has you shocked surprised and quickly turning pages to see what's in store. Her writing is so crisp and clear you feel as if you are right there standing beside Meg; feeling what she is feeling and seeing what she is seeing. A great book for paranormal readers who do not mind some (ok a little more than some) gore, bad smells and squishy sounds.

Meg just celebrated her 21st birthday. Waking up the morning after to a horrendous sight that she swears is caused by some hallucinogenic drug that was slipped into one of her drinks the night before. She goes on one amazingly nightmarish adventure to get things figured out one she finds out it's not a hallucination. But a real honest to goodness corpse that has made way to her side. With the help of one good neighbor (Armando), his father (Dr. G) and her two close friends (Tee and Emma) questions become answered, truths come to light and Meg grows in many ways. It's amazing what reality can bring forth when you get a good dose of it!

I really enjoyed the world Kristi created in The Corpse Goddess. There's only a touch of romance that is a slow build (no hot n' spicy scenes here). But it added even more to the book as a whole and showed the growth of the characters as a pair. I was left with some lingering questions. There were a couple of untied ends that left me with a, hmm. Does this mean there's a book two to come? I would love to see that! Kristi, if you were trying to leave your readers wanting more, you succeeded!

4.0 out of 5 stars The Corpse Goddess August 16, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I really enjoyed reading The Corpse Goddess, although zombies aren't usually my thing. I wish there would have been a little more blush worthy moments through out the book. Kristi Jones didn't hold back on The Corpse Goddess, I found my self laughing and crying through out this book, I hope to be able to read more about Meg and Armando.

Meg is a college student who wanted to get away from her non-loving parents. One morning she woke up in her studio apartment and little did she know but her whole life was about to change. A zombie has shown up after a night of playing seance's in the cemetery, when Meg goes to the only person she can think of for help, her neighbor, Armando is more than willing to help.

Soon Meg starts experiencing some body changes that aren't looking too good. Armando does the first thing he can think of: He takes her to his father the Doctor.

When Meg realizes what she is and what she is becoming she goes to her least favorite people of all, her parents. Her parents weren't very sympathetic to her situation, in fact they knew about it all along and couldn't wait for her transformation to happen. For Meg, this was all very traumatizing, she needed to find away to be herself again.

So with the help of her besties, Armando, and Dr. Gonzales, she was determine to find away out of this curse that she had unknowingly started. However, by doing this she may lose the one person who really cares for her.

4.0 out of 5 stars Just don't eat before OR after you read!! August 17, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Don't let the title fool you!! This book was refreshing and creative, which is something I deeply enjoyed. Sometimes within the genre you come across similar themes so it was nice to read a book that didn't follow everyone else. But, it's vivid with the whole corpse thing so just keep that in mind.

The book is exciting with good, descriptive action scenes. It's a quick read and is well written. The characters while not deeply developed still made for a good story. If you enjoy zombie, paranormal and a touch of romance then you should check out this book!

Format:Kindle Edition
Review by Sabrina (By The Cover Book Club Member and Operator of [...]

Blurb: Party girl Meg Highbury wakes up the morning after her twenty-first birthday with one hell of a hangoverâ"and a walking corpse in her apartment. Meg turns to her straight-laced neighbor Armando for help, and together they discover that Meg is a Valkyrie. Whatâ(tm)s more, her first duty is to trade places with the corpse.

But Meg is being sent to her Death Duty too soon. In a race against time, Meg frantically tries to find a loophole to avoid her gruesome fate, but while Meg is determined to live whatever the cost, Armando's strict moral principles keep getting in the way of her plans for escape.

Can Meg walk the âaerightâ and narrow path, possibly sacrificing her mortal life, for love? And if she can, will Armando have the stomach to love a rotting corpse of a girl who is falling apart in more ways than one?

My Opinion:

Well Written. Very Descritive. The Author knew her information and you can tell she put in a ton of work on research and detail. I love it when an Author dives right in and you can FEEL the passion they have for what they do. The story just pops out of the pages and it almost feels as if the characters are right in front of you.

No slow read here! It started off action packed with Meg waking up with a zombie of a corpse standing next to her bed and stayed action packed all the way to the end.

The Nitty Gritty: Now that I have pointed out the reasons why this book was a well written read, let's get on to what I think of the story itself.

I haven't read many stories...in fact, I don' t think I have read any books that involve a Valkyrie. This was a first for me.
