The Corpse Goddess Book Review

The Corpse Goddess
Kristi Jones



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?



My Thoughts


‘Corpse Goddess’ was one of the best zombie novels I have read. I just recently got into zombie novels and this one was amazing. It had everything. It was action packed, had love, true love at that, humor and oh wow some very gruesome scenes.


Poor Meg is completely falling apart, literally, her body is becoming a decomposing corpse and she is trying to beat the clock and figure out a way to reverse what is happening to her.


I absolutely loved the characters in this book; they definitely came to life for me. I think the author really did something amazing with this book, while some are saying that the scenes are too disgusting to deal with, I thought they were very realistic and spot on. You can tell the author did her research, because clearly decomposing bodies would do that.


Overall I think it was a great read and I would recommend it to anyone who is a fan of the paranormal. I cannot wait to read more from this author, I think she will go far.

* I recieved this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. All opinions expressed in this review are my own. I did not recieve compensation for this review.
