Publisher's Summary

If Asher Hearst had a superpower, it would have to be his ability to take a punch, laugh it off, and keep on swinging. So yeah, immortality comes with a few perks.
As a college student slash small-time fixer, he's about to take a job that's best left to the pros. A proposition by a dryad to save witches from the Inquisition is a first, but he isn't one to balk when the odds are stacked against him. Especially not while he's drinking on someone else's dime.
The powers that be in the supernatural world aren't anything to sniff at, so it should come as no surprise that Asher gains his fair share of enemies. At the very least, you'd think traveling across space and time would put him on a path towards a promising future - maybe even give him a shot at romance? Yeah, right.
Immortal: Curse of the Deathless is an action-packed, dark and gritty comedy with a dash of horror. Over its three parts, the book spans a contemporary, urban setting, as well as Tír na nÓg, the demesne best known for being home to the Fae (Sídthe) from classic Celtic Mythology.

Action packed and kept me listening

Immortals, witches, weres, fey, and other things populate this book. The main character is a young man who is immortal. I think there was a prequel I missed when he realizes this because there were several references to past events.

I did enjoy this but there were several things that prevent me from giving it 5 stars across the board. There were a few errors in either pronunciation or grammar that I noticed and distracted me. In addition to the regular blood and guts fight scenes (which I could handle), there was a torture scene which was too much for my tastes. Also, the ultimate bad guy that they ended up fighting was almost cartoonish - I liked the earlier, more believable bad guys. The book ends in an obvious "there is a sequel" coming way with some loose ends still out there. So, with those caveats in mind, I do recommend it.

Tense, grimy, and hilarious - A must read

What did you love best about Immortal: Curse of the Deathless?

I absolutely loved the way the book was written - Its pacing was perfect and it had an excellent mix of humour and action. The author definitely knows what he's doing and I was always left wanting more.


What other book might you compare Immortal: Curse of the Deathless to and why?

I feel like this is slightly similar to some of James Patterson's novels, particularly the Max series - There's never been much to satisfy my craving for more of the franchise but this definitely did the job!


What about Nik Magill’s performance did you like?

I feel like the narrator's performance was fitting to the tone of the book - You could hear the emotion in his voice and personally, I felt incredibly engaged throughout. I'll definitely be on the lookout for more of his work!


Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I can't recall any one moment in particular, although there's definitely a massive mix of emotions in this book - I remember myself finding a couple of moments in the book emotional, but at the same time there were some laugh out loud moments as well as nail-biting, edge-of-your-seat action scenes.


Any additional comments?

I'd absolutely recommend this book to anyone - From action enthusiasts to supernatural fans, to people who are just looking for a funny read. It covers all bases and I'll definitely be listening to/reading more of the author's works.
