One of today’s challenges is from Pages of Forbidden Love.
The Challenge Questions:  
1. What book are you most looking forward to based on summary alone? Feel free to show off the summary!   
2. What book are you most looking forward to based on cover art alone? Feel free to show off the beautiful cover art!
The Corpse-Rat King, by Lee Battersby

I have the same answer for both questions: The Corpse-Rat King by Lee Battersby.  I saw the cover last month when I was browsing my favorite bookstore's list of new books that will be on sale for August.  Both the title and the cover are rad and once I read the summary I got even more exited to check this out. 
Marius don Hellespont and his apprentice, Gerd, are professional looters of battlefields. When they stumble upon the corpse of the King of Scorby and Gerd is killed, Marius is mistaken for the monarch by one of the dead soldiers and is transported down to the Kingdom of the Dead.
 Just like the living citizens, the dead need a King-after all, the King is God's representative, and someone needs to remind God where they are. 
And so it comes to pass that Marius is banished to the surface with one message: if he wants to recover his life he must find the dead a King. Which he fully intends to do. 
Just as soon as he stops running away.
