"This is a fully realized world that rivals Anne Rice or William Gibson." ~Christopher M. Jimenez (SinfulCelluloid.com)

"Death of the Body wasn't what I expected it to be, it was so much more! It honestly scared the daylights out of me." ~Helena Ison (Accepted Wisdom Book Blog)

"This was rather different than any other story I have read before." ~Emma D. (Bitten By Books)

"This was one of those books where I ignored my family for a day so I could just sit and read it straight through." ~Autumn Jones (The Bearded Scribe)

From the Back Cover

"Death of the Body is a roller-coaster ride that will leave you questioning reality, religion, and everything you thought you knew. Be ready to lose yourself in this amazing story." ~Rebecca Ethington, author of the Imdalind and Glass series

I was given the opportunity to receive and review an ARC of this book. I am still a little on the fence about this book to be honest. I finished it a couple days ago, and I have spent that time mulling over what I just read, and how I feel about this book.

It was in no way a "bad" book, it just flows differently than most book. It starts with our main character, Edmund, as a ten year old and ends with him being 21. The thing that is odd about this is, that he remains just as mature at the end as he is at the beginning. Not to say that he behaves like a 10 year old when he's 21, but more the other way around. I still am also trying to grasp what genre this book it. It falls in the Paranormal/fantasy genre, but there is also a good dose of darkness in this book. Not something for young teens that's for sure, at least in my opinion. There's a bit of some pretty sick gore.

Another thing that I think some people might not like about this book is how it rips on religion as a whole. It's not just the Christian religions that are mocked, but most all of them. If someone is easily offended at having their beliefs mocked, then this book really isn't for you.

One small thing that I really didn't catch onto, until it was flat out said, was that one of the supporting characters is gay. I didn't know the character is gay until the part in the book when he flat out says he was having sex with a dude, it was established that he was a horn dog but I just assumed that he was a straight horn dog. It's not that the character being gay bothers me, its just that it was never really even hinted at in the first place, or maybe it was and I just didn't catch it.

I received an advance copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. I don’t feel like I am giving away any spoilers (it is mentioned in the book’s description) when I say that the book’s main character Edmund dies in the beginning at the age of 10, killed by one of his own. For most stories death of the main character comes at the end, but for Edmund it is just the beginning. He wakes up in another world and struggles to make sense of his new surroundings and a life he doesn’t remember living. He has memories of his life before his death but now people are calling him by another name and his mind is filled with new thoughts and ideas he doesn’t know the origin of. As Edmund struggles to make sense of everything something happens and we are again transported to another time and place.

Edmund ‘s college years bring on new challenges and a new understanding of who he is and where he has come from. But understanding doesn’t necessarily make things better. With the help of his friends, roommates and a cute girl he begins to put the pieces of his past together with sometimes terrifying consequences.

I really enjoyed the magic of this book. Edmund has special abilities that allow him to commune with nature in a way that is unique and original. I have a feeling that he (and we) have only brushed the surface of what he really can do with his abilities. It will be fun to see what happens in the next books.

As some other reviewers have mentioned there are quite a few religious undertones to this story. It is apparent that the author has done some research of several religions and their beliefs and practices. As someone who has studied and explored various world religions I enjoyed this part of the story.

There are going to be people who will not like this book. If you dislike people making fun of your religion, any religion or insulting it in some way you may want to stay away. If you have a problem with gay characters you may want to stay away. The author is not in your face about most of it but it is there and some will just not like it. The book is also kind of strange. The magic is not very well explained for the most part which is annoying as it is central to what is occurring in the plot. Not a bad book by any stretch but again, not for everyone.

I so enjoyed this book and couldn't put it down. It is extremely well written and I didn't find a single error anywhere.

The story is simply fascinating and I found myself wrapped up with concern about what happened to Edmund and his people. Then when he's suddenly in another world, I found myself as confused as he was and worried for his safety.

The other characters are vivid and believable. They add to the book in a good way and move the story forward rather than weigh it down.

I will be purchasing the next book as soon as I post this review! I highly recommend this book for anyone interested in magic, the supernatural, or just looking for a really great read.

Ok…so I am an Urban Fantasy virgin.
Death of the Body was my FIRST read in this genre.
And. WOW. It did not disappoint.

Edmund is a 10 year old boy living in a world of magic. He lives in the quiet town called Orenda. He talks with nature…communicates with the Earth herself.
But. Edmund's world comes crashing down around him when he and his people are betrayed by one of their own. Edmund in turn....is murdered.

Waking up a 12 year old boy, Edmund tries to piece together his being and his memories, and how he came to be who he woke up as. He needs to find a way to get back to Orenda and to avenge his family and his people.

Ok. I don't want to give much else away. This book. It was captivating. I had a hard time putting it down each time I had to. Edmund is such a strong character. He is kindhearted, loyal, and fearless. He looked death in the face and he said "Go to Hell".
Each of the characters in the book brought so much to the story.
Nicholas was the humor. He was likeable and relatable. The banter between him and Edmund made them real. It made them human.
Xia. She was the grounding force of these boys I think. She is a tough, mouthy girl...my kind of girl.
The budding romance between her and Edmund adds another aspect to the story. It adds a softness to the story.

Now. Ok.
I am not a religious person in anyway. No way whatsoever. Nadda. I don’t typically read much of anything that contains religious references, and I do not follow religious practices or keep up on the 411 of religion. So, that being said, there were times where I was disinterested with all of the religion talk and had a hard time following along. I had to fight the urge to skim a few times.
