Overview

Imagine a world where death is merely an inconvenience. A new body awaits and we resume living, fully aware of the past, but at a price -- eternal life as slaves to masters who forbid individuality. For rebels who refuse to conform, the final solution is perpetual amnesia, removing all knowledge of past lives. One victim of the memory-wipe struggles to decipher his dreams and regain his sense of identity, only to learn of the hero he should be and what it means to occupy a body -- the sexual urges, escapism through intoxication, and the sense of self for a body, entirely different for a soul. This exploration of memory, dreams and the subconscious is also an action adventure as the hero faces dire challenges, joined by an oddball crew of fellow rebels whose allegiance is questionable. Awakening begins the Dead Forever trilogy, followed by Apotheosis and Resonance.

Editorial Reviews

Midwest Book Review
"Dead Forever Awakening is a fascinating science fiction adventure, highly recommended."
Teri Davis
"In the action adventure, the pace is non-stop race from being back in the hands of authority and always questioning the position and actions of the rebel group. The characters are a little odd, but extremely realistic and likable. The personal voice is the strength of the novel in that you feel as if you really live in the main hero's body with him."
Charline Ratcliff
"Each character has a unique personality and Campbell does a great job of bringing them to life."
Clayton Bye
"Awakening is a professionally written and solidly edited book that I feel is well worth the price and time you’ll spend on it. Cool science concepts made believable and an interesting story line by an author who’s unafraid to have some fun while he’s writing."

    Dead Forever: Awakening

    This was a very good book. William Campbell has a great writing style that I really enjoyed, it kept the story moving along and kept the mind imagining these places and characters that I really liked. The scope of the story is amazing considering it's only the first book, but I loved the ambition of it this story could end up going anywhere and I can not wait to find out what happens in the second book Apotheosis.

    A well written book...

    Just finished the book before writing this review. It was a very good book the characters have great depth. I found it creative that throughout the book he has to obtain his memory. It could very well become a video game of some sort. When the main character(i wont spoil his name for those who have yet to read it) thinks or says somthing its so deep. You can really grab some good quotes and amazing life lessons from this book.
    Overall thought...simply amazing.

    Did not like it

    Yet another author who inists on writing in the present tense. The author spends way too long just getting the main character awake. It should not take 10 pages to awaken.

    Great Read

    Awakening is the first book in William Campbell's Dead Forever series. The book is written in first-person, present tense, which may take some readers a bit of adjustment. William Campbell, has an easy to follow writing style. Each character in Awakening has a unique personality and Campbell does a great job of bringing them to life, his words flow well. William Campbell is very descriptive in his telling of Awakening, but not so much as to make it boring. There were times when Awakening would take on a sort of "Matrix" type feel, but for me it fit just perfect. I would recommend Awakening-Dead Forever #1 to adults and YA of a more mature level due to some of the sexually themed areas. of the book. I apploud William Campbell for Awakening-Dead Forever #1. I look forward to reading Apotheosis-Dead Forever #2.
