suspenseful intrigue built on a cool back story

Soul Meaning by A.D. Starrling is the first book in a series called Soul Meaning. Lucas Soul is a private detective and a half-breed immortal. When the hunters of the immortal race Crovir start hunting him, Lucas is suddenly on the run after centuries of silence. His investigation leads him from Boston to Washington DC to all over Europe. Accompanied by his human partner, Reid Hasley, Lucas fights for his life and steps into the politics of the immortal races. Lucas must figure out the motivation of the Crovir hunters and address them before the immortal society comes crashing down and kills him.

This is a fast paced action adventure with a lot of suspenseful intrigue built on a really cool back story to make it really exciting. Starrling has created a really interesting shadow world of immortals that lives amongst, but hidden, from humans. The unique nature of the immortal deaths and how Lucas fits into the world works really well. I really liked the characters, their evolving relationships and the way that the politics of the immortal world is developed for the reader as the story continues. Lucas is a compelling main character. While he is somewhat of an underdog, his considerable skills at fighting and the revelations about his unique position in the immortal world lift him into a pretty complex character. His interactions with Reid, politicians, and other immortals are fun to listen to and move the story forward. There is also a romantic component to the novel that I thought was merely okay, but its addition to the storyline was necessary for some plot points. I did find some of the action scenes to be too much to follow along with, but that's a personal preference. While the motivation of the villain of the story is seemingly cliché, the way that Starling has incorporated science into the plotline made it interesting and novel. The scientific motivation really made the backstory exciting for me and made we want to find out more about some of the complexities of the immortal races.

The narration by Michael Bower was really excellent. His voicing of the characters really well, including all the accents, and was well paced. The well-executed articulation of the sighs or laughs really brought the story to life and is a great skill for a narrator. The production quality was good as well. I would recommend this novel to anyone who likes face paced action adventure stories with a touch of science.

Any additional comments?

You barely have a moment to breath because this story just jumps from 0 to 120 miles per hour with action! I love this story of immortals gone

Reid and Lucas were the perfect duo of best friends a.k.a. business partners! And who wouldn't want a friend like Reid to watch your 6 when everyone is out to kill you?!

You get a bit of mystery, a bio-hazard scare, a light romance (although the eww factor is there for me, the coupling was just so wrong for me) and ACTION! I have absolutely no complaints with the action. Almost non-stop action is what I love in stories I listen to. And this stories delivers it tenfold!
