Prah and Constantine Review: The Body Dwellers by Julie Kazimer

This month was my turn to choose the book for the Prah and Constantine review. If I was a faster reader I’d make her do more reviews with me.  I found this book on Julie Kazimer’s blog, which is hilarious. She has the best top 5 lists ever. I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to read the book, especially since it was free at the time.

After reading my review, head on over to Constantine's blog to see what she thought of it. I'm looking forward to seeing her reaction.

The Blurb
In a world divided by genetics and a concrete wall, Indeara Adair, a mutant enforcer survives by kicking the occasional gnome ass. A job her half-human, half-mutant cells make her terrifyingly skilled at. Life is good with a few exceptions, namely, an elite force of cops who have Indeara in their sights, not to mention the reappearance of Quinn Daniels, a man who betrayed her three years ago to dwell among the human race. A man she must now protect in order to save the mutant population.

Yet these are the least of Indeara’s concerns, for somewhere, a plague destined to destroy the mutants is scheduled for release. A plague developed by Indeara’s own grandfather. With the help of a ragtag group of mutants led by the mysterious head of the rebel cause, Jake McClain, Indeara slips beyond the wall and into the human world to aid those she loves, and to learn the truth behind her own genetic code.

My Review
I loved this book. It made me laugh, get angry, a little sad, excited, but most of all it made me think throughout the book. I enjoyed trying to figure out what would happen. Ms. Kazimer had me pretty stumped. Just when I thought I had figured it out, she twisted it up on me.

Indeara was awesome. She reminded me of a mutant Stephanie Plum, except not only did she have luck on her side, but Indeara could fight, shoot a gun with accuracy, and use explosives without burning her eyebrows off. Plus she had a special mutant power.

Ms. Kazimer has created an incredible well written story with loads of action, intrigue, friendship, and romance.

One thing I didn’t like in the novel was that Indeara was helping to save the mutants, while the fairies were caged (you'll have to read to find out why) and she never mentioned that it was wrong, when it always stayed at the back of my mind.

I give this book five out of five mutant chocolate bars.

I ‘bought’ my book (for free) from Amazon.

Happy reading everyone.


  1. Excellent Review, Nana! You write with perfection as always. I would like to take my time reading. Sometimes, if I'm not on a schedule for a review, I make a good book last and read a few pages every night.

    1. Thanks Cathy. I'm the same way, it makes the book more enjoyable to read it slowly. But then again I'm always anxious to finish it so I can see what happens.

  2. Slowly, your reivews are making me change my mind about these fantasy, paranormal genres!

    1. Lol. One day I'll gift you with a light one.


I love reading your comments.
