Spirit by Andrew Feder

Publisher:  Author House
Pages:  346

From the Cover:

What if you could leave your physical body and astral project yourself?  Then what would you think?

What if you had somehow and some way went out of your physical body only to be finding yourself in a someone else's body?  Then what would you think?

What if you told those around you that you were really someone else?  Then what would they think?

What if you tried to explain to them how you left your body and for some reason you ended up in a killer's body?  Then what would they think?

What if you were tricked into another's body?  Then what would you think?

Randall Lender was a Wanted Man. He was wanted by the Clergy of theMajor Organized Religions, the Governments and the New World Order, but that was the least of his problems.

After going out of body (astral projection) Randall Lender suddenly found himself in such a paradox where the surrealism meets dilemma. Within this phenomenon of Looking Through the Hour Glass he unfortunately after leaving his physical body ended up into another's.

This was his paradox. This was his dilemma. This was his surrealism.

And regrettably for Lender this was the real quantum problem. Randall Lender found himself on an unexpected journey with its twists and turns until he realizes that he must die to live for his return to his former body.

And now the elixir of questions remains:

What? How? And Why? Then you'll ask why me? Why him? And What If?

Randall Lender is a man who has it all.  And one with some very special talents to go along with it.  But will those talents lead him down the path to salvation or disaster?

As he lies down, as if to nap, Randall projects... projects away from his life, away for his body... but instead of taking a trip through astral space, he wakes up in the body of another, and the other is the body of a murderer, Johnny McKenzie.  

Now, someone as wealth and as well known as Randall Lender shouldn't have any problem convincing everyone that somehow, someway, something has gone horribly wrong.... but would you believe a murderer, tried and set for execution, if they told you some story about a soul swap?  No?  Now you understand Randall's problem.  Will he find a way to astral project back?  Is his body still there?  Or has the order already pre-programmed his destruction?  In the body of a murderer, Randall will have to call on his attorney and daughter to believe the unbelievable.

Spirit by Andrew Feder is a magical, mysterious ride into the realm of what if.  The clock is ticking and only time will tell if Randall can find a way to purge himself from the Johnny's body.  Then things start happening around him.  Lives change, and there's no explanation other than this person, this murderer is someone special.  Someone more.  And then ultimate battle begins.  If Randall is going to preserve his life, he will find himself warring with the Dark, good versus evil, and if he wants to survive, he's going to have to find a way to win.  He's a warrior for the Light and only if he can defeat the warrior of the Dark will he be free.

Spirit is an engrossing read that I found hard to put down.  There are twists and turns, and while this isn't my usual read, there's isn't any way not to become involved in Randall's struggle.  You being to want to fight along with him, hoping that, while the body is that of the murderer, Johnny McKenzie, the mind and the spirit is that of another, Randall Lender.  You even know that the man is a murderer, there's no doubt, but it is the murderer's spirit who is the responsible party, and has somehow been replaced by another.  If you enjoy a good fantasy read with a battle between the ultimate good versus the absolute evil, then pick up Spirit by Andrew Feder, I don't think you'll be disappointed.

I received this book from The Cadence Group for review.  All opinions express are my own.

It doesn't really sound like something I would like but it's still an interesting premise.
