Publisher's Summary

When Adriana, a brilliant young archaeologist, accepts a position at the Museum of Archaeology in her hometown of Santander, Spain, she never imagines that her new boss has lived through the history she can only study. Iago, the charismatic technical director of the museum, is more than 10,000 years old but appears to be only 35. Iago and his family are longevos - people who never seem to age after reaching adulthood. The ancient family is divided: Iago’s brother and sister seek the source of their longevity in hopes of creating more like themselves, while Iago and his father fear the repercussions of the true Fountain of Youth.
A dangerous game of power and knowledge that has played out over eons becomes even more complicated when Adriana attracts both brothers’ attention - and learns their secret. Filled with science, history, and passion, The Immortal Collection transports the listener through time and space, from the days of cavemen, through the Roaring Twenties, to the charming plazas of contemporary Spain. Ancient history meets cutting-edge research in this modern love story and sweeping historical saga.

Wow, wow, wow...such a good read!

Would you listen to The Immortal Collection again? Why?

Definitely would read many times.


Who was your favorite character and why?

All the characters are interesting, but of course Adriana and Iago are my fave.


What does Jeff Cummings and Angela Dawe bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Jeff and Angela bring the personalities of the characters to life that enjoy with the audio book that I wouldn't have if I just read the book and I so looking forward to the 2nd installment in this saga in audio form as well.


If you could take any character from The Immortal Collection out to dinner, who would it be and why?

Probably Hector/Lur because he would have such a wealth of knowledge of human histories and experience more so than any of the other character, even Iago


Any additional comments?

Wow, wow, wow...such a good read. Thoroughly enjoyed every minute of this story. Such rich characters and story. Well written both in structure and content. So glad I took the time to read this book. Can't wait for the 2nd installment of this story.

Best Book I've Listened To In A While!

I have to say that I was sooo pleasantly suprised by this book. The narration was excellent. Especially considering that it was translated from spanish and there was a lot of Spanish places that had to pronounced correctly.
A book about immortals that aren't vampires was also refreshing. You get a deep insight into the characters and their family connections.
For the romance junkies there's enough of that without it being porn.
So worth the money for this one.
I will still give an adult rating.
