It's time for the Prah & Constantine Review.
The first book I've read by the author J.A.Kazimer was Shank and was thrilled when Nana chose The Body Dwellers this month.
Julie Kazimer is a prolific and gifted author who knows how to keep the reader on the edge. In The Body Dwellers, Julie takes us on a wild, fast paced rollercoaster ride. You barely have time to inhale before the protagonist, Indeara, who is half-mutant, five-foot-six, dressed in a skullcap, black cargo pants, and pink combat boots kicks some butt. A Stannum is a term Indeara hates, it's a genetic mutation of metals which protects her cells and heals like lightning, however, she feels pain like any human. But humans fear her more than any other mutations because she's harder to kill and more willing to die.
The world of mutants is being infiltrated by a deadly plague, the harsh, hard hitting community barely thrives as humans have sequestered them behind a walled barrier. Humans are scared of a mutant apocalypse, motivated by prejudice and lies.
Indeara believes her wealthy, human grandfather has devised a drug to make mutants into humans. The scientist thinks nothing of butchering mutants for his gain. Indeara wishes to join the Resistance to fight against their human killers.
In the beginning of the novel you read that Quinn, the love of Indeara's life has plugged three bullets into her before defecting to the human side of the wall. Needless to say there is a cool, love interest twist to this novel that I enjoyed.
The Body Dwellers is a pistol whipping, kick butt, hard assed, love 'em and kill 'em novel that will leave you gasping.
Now let's go over to Nana Prah's blog and read her review!
Here is the Blurb:
Beating down deadbeat gnomes are just part of the job for Indeara Adair. Working for a long-time family friend, Ivan Daniels, a mutant mob boss, its Indeara’s job to collect overdue debts by whatever means necessary. But her "normal" day is interrupted when two cops from the human world stop by Ivan’s Bar in search of Ivan’s black sheep of a son, Quinn, the one man who’d broken Indear’s heart, literally, after he shot her three times in the chest and left her for dead three years before.
Indeara would love nothing more than to see Quinn imprisoned for the rest of his days, good riddance to bad-boy-body-dwelling rubbish. But she made Ivan a promise, and now, with the help of a ragtag group of friends including the very sexy and mysterious, Jake McClain, she must slip into the human world to protect the man responsible for betraying her, thereby saving the entire mutant society.
