The Three Resurrections of Jessica Churchill
The Three Resurrections of Jessica Churchill by Kelly Robson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A young woman is kidnapped by a stranger, and what happens is the worst – but typical – thing that you might imagine would happen when a girl is stolen by a strange man. Jessica comes to, alone in the woods, disoriented, and with a strange voice speaking to her from within, telling her it is trying to repair her body. Jessica realizes that she actually died, but has now been infected or colonized by an alien organism which is in symbiosis with her.

What Jessica eventually decides to do is certainly not what I would decide to do, but considering the duress that the character has been under, it’s hard to say that it’s not a decision the character could believably have made.

A strong and thought-provoking story.
