This Random Recommendation is a 'Special Edition' because today I am helping to promote an authors' debut novel, rather than an older book I have read before!
Nameless by Kyle Chais
First Published: January 10, 2012
They are the Nameless; names are for those with masters and they have none. They live in the Nameless realm, awaiting their inescapable execution.
From the beginning of man, they have witnessed the blackest crimes committed. Witnessed the crops of Earth watered with crying blood spilled by man, woman, and child. But there is something that torments them. It is the simple logic that grips the back of their throats and will not let go. No matter how much they beg, no matter how much they pray, they will be one day be executed by God, but humans will remain forever.
The Nameless and the Human world collide. One nameless meets Aurick Pantera, a sleazy drunk about to be murdered by a gang over his debts. One who is condemned for his supposed wickedness feels compassion, possesses the body of Aurick and saves his life.
Soon he discovers the delights for the smell of roses, touch of seashells, and the taste of women. With the belief that any bad situation can be flipped into good, he uses Aurick’s body to live life to the fullest- become a rock star, have a successful psychiatric practice, and pursue superstar journalist Helena Way.
Three years of living the good life, in a twisted turn other nameless take notice of his impossible achievements and begin appearing to Aurick. They give him the opportunity of a lifetime. To take back the eternal life they felt they were cheated out of. They prepare for a war not even their Creator could imagine. Aurick stands at the center of it all. Does he join the ranks to return to former divine glory jeopardizing the lives he has come to love or can he accept execution to protect them? Faced with this impossible choice, does a third option exist?
