Marcher Lord Press is set to meet some of the growing demand for Christian Speculative Fiction -- that by the way is not being met with the major publishers at the moment.

The Personifid Invasion by R. E. Bartlett takes up the story previously published by Realms Fiction's Personifid Project, also by Bartlett, and delves deeper into a world of human perfection gone horribly wrong. Similar in scope and feel to Scott Westerfields, The Uglies series, this novel series adds the dimension of wicked spirits inhabiting the new bodies people are trading up for. Becoming a Personifid, means becoming artificial but perfect. It also means you might be under demonic control. The writing is crisp and clean and will keep you turning the pages.

I agree with your comparison to Scott Westerfeld's Uglies series. After finishing a few pages of the book.. I seem to notice a bit of influence from one of my favorite writer's Scott Westerfeld. But all good artists derive from their favorites and adjust it to make it their own!! I'm quite guilty of this with my own fantasy trilogy

ABSOLUTELY TRUE! WE are all influenced by others we enjoy. How many tolkien fans or star wars fans, etc, are now writing and publishing or making movies?
People love the familiar element anyway.
