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!

Before this book, the only thing I had read regarding Norse mythology was the little I gleaned from White Oleander. I even had to stop reading at one point so that I could Wikipedia Valkyrie because I wanted to learn more about it.

What I liked about this book: The plot is original. I have never read about Valkyries and the story the author weaves is intriguing. I stayed up way too late reading this book-a price I will gladly pay tomorrow.

Meg is a party girl, and rather unlikable in my opinion. She wakes up after her twenty-first birthday to find a rotting zombie/corpse following her around. She doesn't like her goody-two-shoes neighbor, Armando, but is forced to go to him for help in extricating herself from the problem. She has to find out what happened, why and how to get her life back. Because now, she is rotting and the corpse is coming back to life. At one point, the stench emanating from her is just as bad as the zombie.

Meg is selfish and usually makes the wrong choices, but when the reader learns about her childhood and her awful parents, it is easy to understand why.

Armando is her polar opposite. He had a wonderful childhood and parents who actually loved him. He enlists the help of his father, a physician, to try to heal Meg's body and figure out how to rid herself of the zombie.

They go to Meg's parents' house to find out more about what's happening. Her father is not at all surprised at Meg's appearance or the zombie following her, and expects her to await her mother's arrival. <spoiler> Armando's father, Dr. G., studies up on Norse legends and learns that Meg has unknowingly called down a replacement curse. She will go journey with the dead and give someone else extended life.

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!

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.
