The Deliverer (Book One in the Marenon Chronicles) by Jason D. Morrow

From goodreads: Prophecies are not always clear. That is what seventeen-year-old Silas Ainsley learns when he finds himself in a realm called Marenon. The only way to get to Marenon is to die, and Silas has just arrived. The people of Marenon are nearing the brink of war and many of them claim that Silas is the fulfillment of an ancient prophecy. Each group wants to use him for their own purposes, and he doesn't know who is trustworthy. With the help of a lawless band of mercenaries, Silas must journey to uncover the meaning of the prophecy before Marenon falls to ruin.The only way to get to Marenon is to die, and Silas has just arrived.

An amazing debut novel by Jason D. Morrow, The Deliverer sucks you into the adventure from the very first sentence. Morrow's story takes place in an imagined world, Marenon--located somewhere between death and the afterlife. It tells of a group of people banded together to save their world from the evil and in-slavery of the Ulrich race. Silas, having lived his short life of 17 years on earth, is new to Marenon and discovers that he is the prophesied deliverer of this world. He catches on to his new way of life and mission quickly, and exhibits heroic qualities of loyalty, persistence and courage.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book, and my three boys are fighting over my kindle to read it! This is an intriguing book, that will have you turning pages quickly to find out what happens next.
