Death of the Body

Series: Crossing Death #1

Publication Date: December 13th, 2013
I grew up in a world of magic. By the time I was ten I understood nature, talked to the trees, and listened to the wind. When the kingdom of men conquered my town, I was murdered by one of my own—the betrayer of my kind. But I didn’t stay dead.
I woke to find myself in a strange new world called Los Angeles. The only keys to the life I remembered were my father’s ring, my unique abilities, and the onslaught of demons that seemed hell-bent on finding me. Now I must find out who I really am, protect my friends, and get back to my beloved hometown of Orenda.
A Riveting and Unique Read
This is a mix of Urban Fantasy and horror. Some scenes were pretty bloody but at the same time I couldn’t stop “gawking” at it. This is not for the faint of heart! Some parts reminded me of The Exorcist, some parts Supernatural (think yellow eye demon … sorry I’m not talking about Dean), and some parts “The Kingkiller Chronicles” by Patrick Rothfuss .
The plot was full of unexpected twists and turns, and the story easily pulled me right in. It was a pretty gripping intense read. Some scenes were very written and I think they would go really well on the big screen. The whispering tree, the water-like glass, the glittering floating glasses… and the list goes on.
I did have one tiny bit of problem with it. It seemed like the protagonist always had an out, some came about quite unexpectedly and maybe a bit too easy. Several time he’s completely cornered, but was always saved because of so and so (to not give too much away). But, one could also argue that that’s why it’s unexpected.
I would recommend this to anyone that doesn’t mind a bit of gore. The journey that you would go through with it is worth it.
