From a small-town school to the middle of the Sahara desert and beyond, this ambitious and expansive novel will take you on a journey from normality to the edge of oblivion and leave you gasping for breath!

~David Moody, author AUTUMN, the living dead series

 

I was unable to tear myself away…

~Andrea Dean Van Scoyoc, author of The Two

 

Crossing Death

 

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

 
GREAT story and with all the elements I would want in a novel, by far. You are great at developing characters and I actually felt like I was dealing with REAL people by the time I finished the manuscript.

The elements of religion were fascinating to me and were woven into the story with skill!

~Bev R Sninchak, author and editor at Abraxas Writing & Editing Services

 

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, Book Blogger at Accepted Wisdom

 

I just love this series and its way of hooking you no matter what you love to read.
