Overview

'My name is Lucas Soul. Today, I died again. This is my fifteenth death in the last four hundred and fifty years.’

Soul is an outcast of the Immortal Societies. Born of a Bastian mother and a Crovir father, a half-breed who is abhorred by the two races, he spends the first three hundred and fifty years of his existence being chased and killed by the Hunters.

One fall night in Boston, the Hunt starts again, resulting in Soul's fifteenth death and triggering a chain of events that sends him on the run with Reid Hasley, a former US Marine and his human business partner. From Paris to Prague, their search for answers leads them deep into the Immortal societies and brings them face to face with someone from Soul’s past. Shocking secrets are revealed and fresh allies come to the fore as they uncover a new and terrifying threat to both immortals and humans.

To defeat his enemies, Soul must embrace his tortured fate and become the Hunter. But time is running out. Can he protect the ones he loves and prevent another Immortal War before his seventeenth and final death?

I loved this book! I was immediately drawn into the world of the Immortals that AD Starrling has created. Bastians and Crovirs are two races of Immortals that have been around for centuries. They were once bitter enemies that tried to annihilate each other during a sort of race war, but have been upholding an uneasy truce for some time. Until now, it seems. Fast paced and well written, this book had everything that I love best about a new series: interesting and well developed characters, a solid plot line, enough action and romance to keep me turning pages, and a ending that gives me just enough resolution for this story, but leaves the door wide open for the next book. And at 886 pages on my e-reader, there was a lot of story to enjoy and sink in to. Plus, AD Starrling did a superb job at introducing a new series with an entire new race of people without just giving the reader a huge information dump. We learn about the world of the Immortals a little at a time throughout this book, and according to Starrling more will continue to be revealed throughout the other books in the series. I don't want to go in to too much detail in my review, because this book had a lot of twists and turns, but I can tell you that I will definitely be continuing on with this series, and have already started book two! The only critique I had about this book was not a huge issue, but just something that bothered me. It had nothing to do with the plot, characters - nothing with the actual STORY itself. It centers around the writing style of AD Starrling. Now, I'm not a grammar aficionado by any means, so just bear with me. I believe that what bothered me was the overuse of adverbs, or descriptors. I prefer when an author leaves descriptors after dialogue simple. He said, she said, etc. Every once in a while, if the situation warrants, I don't mind more active descriptions. However, in this book, there were so many unnecessary adverbs and descriptors that they stood out to me like a red flag and distracted me from the story. Here are several examples of what I'm talking about: He said drily He said quietly He said firmly He said gruffly He stated warily She said finally I nodded carefully He murmured I murmured gratefully He muttered He grunted I said carefully He said dully I asked mildly I said briskly I said levelly I don't want to beat a dead horse, or make too huge a deal out of this, but I just want to point out that while this was a fantastic story, this really bogged it down for me. And I feel like if I can point out one helpful criticism to the author that will help them see their writing from a different point of view, then maybe I've done some good. Anyway, I reiterate - I loved this book! You should definitely go pick it up and give it a read. If you like this genre at all, or even if you don't, this is a new author that you will want to give a try!

This was my first paranormal thriller. I was intrigued by "immortals" who can die, heal, and return to life. Kinda of like a cat with nine lives? They run out of lives, or do they? Can there be an exception to the rule? Can a killer virus end the existence of immortals? The story line is action packed with the main character getting himself into one near death after another. The plot carries through to the end but allows for the characters to continue and leaves you wondering what is in store for them. I do have to admit, the weapons used were a bit confusing for a first time reader of paranormal but I hung in there and was glad I did. Look forward to future AD Starling adventures.

Fantastic thrill ride from beginning to end. Highs and heart breaking lows give the story an addictive quality to take you to places with a new point of view.
