If you like well-written, witty urban fantasy with a dash of non-sparkly vampires, history and mystery, give this a try. It’s one of the best books I’ve read this year.
“Adam is probably one of my favourite characters I’ve read about in a long time. Sure he’s a drunken lecher of the first degree, but after sixty thousand years, wouldn’t you be too? He’s clever and street smart, which has kept him alive over the millennia and yet he still holds onto the romantic idea that he’s not the only immortal, that the redheaded beauty he keeps seeing will one day reveal herself to him. If they all don’t get captured by scientists to be poked and prodded and exploited first. I love The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy and I have to say that quite honestly, Immortal does have the feel of the classic as Adam tries to sober up to run away from his many would-be captors. I don’t compare classics like Douglas Adams’ book to contemporary works very easily, so you can be certain that I really do enjoy and recommend Immortal.”

“By the end of the first chapter I was fairly convinced that Gene Doucette had found this manuscript between seats on the subway because it had clearly been written as a collaboration by some of my favorite authors while they were sharing a bottle of whiskey. He has the wit of Douglas Adams, the sarcasm of Jim Butcher, the droll plotting of Spider Robinson, and the sly twists of Neil Gaiman, just to mention a few. But don’t think that this means he seems imitative because he doesn’t. “Immortal” was clever, fascinating, and endlessly entertaining.”
“If you want to read an excellent story, tight writing, fast paced action and moments so humorous they will actually have you laughing out loud, then this is the book for you.”
