“Very occasionally, I will pop up in the historical record. Most of the time I’m not at all easy to spot, because most of the time I’m just a guy who does a thing and then disappears again into the background behind someone-or-other who’s busy doing something much more important. But there are a couple of rare occasions when I get a starring role.” —Adam the Immortal
An oracle has predicted the sojourner’s end, which is a problem for Adam insofar as he has never encountered an oracular prediction that didn’t come true . . . and he is the sojourner. To survive, he’s going to have to figure out what a beautiful ex-government analyst, an eco-terrorist, a rogue FBI agent, and the world’s oldest religious cult all want with him, and fast.
And all he wanted when he came to Vegas was to forget about a girl. And maybe have a drink or two.
“I am probably not the best source when it comes to who invented what. For a long time I thought I invented the wheel.” —Adam the Immortal
The second book in the Immortal series, Hellenic Immortal follows the continuing adventures of Adam, a sixty-thousand-year-old man with a wry sense of humor, a flair for storytelling, and a knack for staying alive. Hellenic Immortal is a clever blend of history, mythology, sci-fi, fantasy, adventure, mystery and romance. A little something, in other words, for every reader.
“Mr Doucette is a master of his trade. It puzzles me why his books are not more widely read.”
“This book starts out slowly and calmly and picks up speed continually until it becomes an adventure book to be picked up over and over with a very satisfying ending.”
“I really enjoyed this book! The way Gene writes and develops his characters is sophisticated, but so incredibly funny that you lose yourself in every page. Just like his last book, I could not put this one down. I lost sleep from reading, but I found it later after the book ended. YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED if you get this book.”
“Unlike many sequels, this one does not disappoint. If you liked his first book or Gaiman’s “American Gods” you will appreciate Doucette’s storyline in Hellenic Immortal. Again, the author brings a fresh take on familiar creatures. In this case, satyrs and werewolves, two of my favorite mythological critters. “Hellenic Immortal” is bit more thought-provoking than “Immortal” but nevertheless remains a pleasant way to relax your mind. Pay attention to the Greek play that slowly unfolds as an introduction to each chapter as this will enrich the ending for you. Mount Terror and Azure Lake, WA — the setting for the story’s climax — are real places in the North Cascades.”
