Bodies: A Romantic Bloodbath is a work of fiction in the science fiction genre. It is aimed at adult readers and was penned by Moses Yuriyvich Mikheyev. This story follows Vince Nilsson, a brilliant but unstable high schooler who creates an optimized version of his crush after disposing of the original. As he starts to spread out his work, it becomes apparent that there is a large market for people wanting to modify their partners and even their children. Decades after Vince’s work begins, the discovery of a body leads a pair of investigators down the rabbit hole of consequences that Vince’s business brings with it. What results is a mature novel with some shocking moments, but one which will provoke deep thought long after you set it down.

Bodies is a science fiction novel set in the future that explores cloning and the impact of this on life as we know it. The story moves quickly and there’s never a dull moment which I thoroughly enjoyed. Around every corner was a new twist or shock and it will keep you excited and on your toes. We get given a view into the characters' inner thoughts and demons, and getting to know the characters in this way made it easier to connect with them. Author Moses Yuriyvich Mikheyev is a master at world-building, giving clear and detailed descriptions which allow you to feel like you’re living in the story. I found Bodies to be a fresh take on this genre, and Vince was an interesting and unique protagonist. I’d not hesitate to recommend this book to fans of gritty science fiction novels, and those with an interest in the impact of cloning.
