This spellbinding novel is a treat for fans of feminist speculative fiction. Although only seven come to accept Christ that day, others follow later. You either are a possessor of the gift or you are not. Megan Campisi conjures a deliciously warped version of sixteenth-century Britain: Tudor England in a funhouse mirror.

Death and Dine Eating food at a funeral or shortly thereafter is not uncommon — large family dinners often follow the death of a loved one, while drinking has been a cornerstone of wakes for the past couple of centuries. It could be any "thing" in the dysfunctional family dynamic. The eaters willfully carried the sins of the deceased for the rest of their mortal lives, going against the teachings of many sects of Christianity that were active in 18th and 19th Century Europe. He is also unaffected by being repeatedly shot with a handgun, and regrows his own head which is merely a skull after it is destroyed by Carnage.

They are intrigued by the word of God, but do not approach the man out of fear. Finally he snaps, taking an empty shotgun and goading police officers into opening fire on him. Though his strength, agility, stamina and reflexes was greater than that of any Olympic athlete, it did not exceed the hypothetical natural limitations of the human body and would not be considered truly superhuman. Campisi has created a dark, rich story replete with humor, unforgettable characters, and arcane mysteries. All hail Megan Campisi and her smashing novel. Now I wonder what will be happening on my birthday ?

This is definitely not the genre that I would normally pick, but after my sone suggested that I read the first book be both were looking forward to reading Sin Eater. Shel has an amazing descriptive writing style. Excited for book 3.

SIN EATER is another one of those books that suffers from poor comparisons. Alice in Wonderland meets the Handmaid's Tale?! The Name of the Rose meets Wolf Hall?!
