#BookReview: Bodies: A Romantic Bloodbath by Moses Yuriyvich Mikheyev

Synopsis: High school genius and sociopath Vince Nilsson is obsessed with Melissa Price. So when she rejects him after a few dates, he devises the perfect plan—manipulate her genes to make an even better version of her . . . one who’s more receptive to him. Of course, he’ll have to kill the real Melissa first. But is it really murder if the person still exists? 

As he continues to “perfect” Melissa, he realizes he can change the world, one gene at a time. Before long, Vince is an underground celebrity, and his company, Emergence, Inc., is in high demand with spouses wishing to replace their better halves with improved clones and parents desiring healthy children.

But the pursuit of perfection has ramifications. Now, decades later, when a body mysteriously shows up at young Leo Oaks’ door, it’s up to him and his girlfriend, Sara Hawking, to unravel the enigmas of a new world where authenticity is ambiguous and no one is who they seem. As the two grow closer, they begin to discover secrets about their own pasts. And just how entwined their lives are with Emergence, Inc. . . . 

A thought-provoking and vividly imagined techno-thriller set in the not-so-distant future, Bodies examines the price of idealism in this riveting page-turner.

For fans of Quentin Tarantino, Stephen King, and the film American Psycho.

“A thrilling and gruesome slice of techno fiction. From a twisted high school experiment to a globe-spanning crisis that threatens to topple royal empires, this futuristic thriller is unforgettable. Bodies: A Romantic Bloodbath is a provocative and potentially controversial read that shines a disturbing light on the dangers of superficiality, gender dynamics, and our modern obsession with perfection, in a twisted techno tale of lust and power.”—SPR

My Review:  
This one is a tough one to review. I loved a few parts of it bit absolutely hated other parts. I was so excited to read this one as I find the cover to be gorgeous and the blurb was enticing with promises of a dark, bloody novel. I was rewarded with plenty of blood and gore and some fantastic twisted scenes, however more often then not I was beyond confused and would have to re-read the section to try to figure put what was going on. I felt like it was all over the place jumping between character POVs without making much sense. For me the story just didn't flow very well. The ending also felt like it was just left hanging and there was no real resolution to the story. Overall, I think it has potential and if you can keep up with the rapidly shifting POV then it would be a great book.
