Viable Body: Pilgrimage by Jamison Ingram (Yuan Nomos) Book Review

Book Description (via Goodreads): After a lifetime of trying to escape the legacy of a calamitous dragons, the outcast Ryukyu is thrust into the role of wandering hero. Beset on all sides from deformed monsters straight out of legends, he must call upon the strength of spirits of the past to survive in a fragmented world.

I received Viable Body: Pilgrimage in exchange for an honest review. I have given this book five out of five stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Nine words sprang to my mind immediately when I started to read Viable Body: Pilgrimage which were: THIS. NEEDS. TO. BE. MADE. INTO. AN. ANIME. SERIES. I absolutely loved this book! It was a relatively fast-paced read. It’s full of action and adventure which was perfect for my midweek read, I managed to escape into a different world from my everyday life stresses and became very engrossed in the lives of the characters and the action from this book.

Book Description (via the author): Viable Body: Pilgrimage is about an outcast called, Ryukyu, who has the ability to channels spirits of dead heroes which temporarily allows them to possess him and fight through him. He goes on a journey across a world filled with solitary, xenophobic villages in an attempt to find the source of deformed monsters that have begun to appear. Filled with plenty of fight scenes, strained diplomacy, and struggles with the shortfalls of humanity.

I really enjoyed learning about Ryukyu, Adair and Aesonius and following them on their adventures through different villages to find the source of the deformed monsters. I thought this book was very well-written with a lot of description throughout which allowed me to envisage a clear picture of what their world looked like.

I would love to see a sequel to this book and hope that they would consider creating it into an anime series as I think it could work really well!
