    a spellbinding and enchanting tale

    Adrian is one of five immortal brothers created at the dawning of time to protect mankind from those who will use dark magic to destroy life magic. Although much of humanity has forgotten this powerful quintet of warriors, a few life magic practitioners still believe they will come if the world needs them.--------------- Thus when someone possessing incredible levels of magic goes rogue, Adrian, whose brother Tain vanished seven centuries ago, begins a quest to stop this maverick from eradicating humanity his fear is that Tain turned. Adrian meets life magic witch Amber Silverthorne, who seeks the demon who murdered her sister for no apparent reason. Adrian and Amber are attracted to one another and make love whenever they can, but the quest comes first. As they receive aid from paranormal and mortal individuals, the duo treks from Seattle to the Arctic with points in between hunting a killer and trying to learn more about THE CALLING.------------------------ This is an interesting opening saga starring an immortal who uses his superpowers especially mind control to get what he wants in this case he wants Amber. However, for the most part Amber can thwart his mental efforts to force her to do his bidding. Though sidebars to establish a contemporary earth filled with magic and supernatural beings take somewhat away from the prime theme of the Immortal and the Witch making love in between the latest good vs. evil war, this s a spellbinding and enchanting tale.------------- Harriet Klausner

    I'll admit that when I wen to Jennifer Ashley's site and saw the cover art for the Immortals I wasn't interested. Then when she announced a revamping of a few of the books I decided to read it. I was not disappointed. Reading almost all of her other books I was not surprised to be hooked so fast in to the story line. Can't wait to read the rest of the books in the series. I'm sure each one will be just as great.

    Immortal Guardians

    I'm so glad that this book is finally available. I purchased the first four books at the same time and finished them in just a couple of days. As the rest of the books came I bought all of them. That was before I had my NOOK. I can't wait for all of them to come out on NOOK?

    Immortals are a favorite!

    Immortals - yummy! The best part is that Jennifer Ashly combines all the elements of the demon world and makes a great beginning to this series. I a looking forward to reading about the other characters that are mentioned in the first book.

    My only problem is that the 2nd book - by Robin Popp is difficult to get. So if you do not mind skipping over that one until you can find it - go ahead with the rest and enjoy.

    I picked up Jennifer Ashley just on a whim not sure if I would like her or not. I loved this book. Adrian is the perfect tortured hero.
