The Melding of Aeris is an original fantasy about a people whose vanity is such that they "meld" the body parts of animals, reptiles, birds, and people onto their own skins to enhance their attractiveness.
Aeris has been born a monster as a result of his parents melding. He only wants human skin and on his eighteenth birthday, he receives it. Unfortunately a man was murdered to provide that skin. The story continues as Aeris is revolted when he finds out about the murder and how he rebels against his parents way of life. He finds new friends who help him with the rebellion. This is a richly imagined book that I highly recommend.
