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.

Any additional comments?

This audiobook is very good. It has an immersive plot, fun characters, lots of action and adventure. The protagonist Asher is quirky, fun, and a little bit weird. If you crave a grand adventure chock full of sarcasm, action, adventure, magic and just the right hint of romance, I urge you to pick up this audiobook.

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.
