HER DREAMS ARE TERRIFYING. In the year of our One 3075 Tundra has been at peace for 400 years. There is no racism, poverty or war. Karla is a young Indigo woman working as a successful healer. Yet she is tormented by lucid and erotic dreams. Dreams in which she is: IMMORTAL. Two men emerge from these phantasms: the first a Copper shape shifter and the other a demon more dead than alive. But when this creature appears in her apartment Karla realizes that they share a lust that may one day consume her. HIS DREAMS WILL UNLOCK A MYSTERY. Joseph has always dreamt of becoming an artist, a warrior...and a shape shifter. Now he's dreaming of a sorceress who commands that he leave his homeland. Together they will journey to the end of time. To a nightmarish world of revolution and magic. But will they save Tundra or perish in it's destruction?

IMMORTAL by Val Jeanne Jeffers starts in the year 3075 and Tundra has been at peace for 400 years. Gone is the racism, poverty and war. Where if any weapons are brought into Tundra it is the one thing punishable by death. Tundra, a place where you are only known by your first name and number.

A young Indigo woman, named Karla, works as a healer, at a place called CLEAN. Where people go to get "clean" from being addicted to the drugs Rush and Placid (the only drugs that are legal.) Karla

I'm not a shape shifter fan but I'm a definite Valjeanne Jeffers fan. She takes the genre and tosses it around, combining sci-fi, horror and romance resulting in an exciting and interesting book. Valjeanne also makes her characters very believable in this fantastic setting. She never fails to incorporate the character's personal and ordinary struggles into their extraordinary and public lives. Valjeanne is also a master at action scenes. Her fight scenes and exciting and tense, just like I like

"Immortal is an amazing story that flows like water. It's a speculative-cool piece that takes the reader on a trip that is horror, cyber-punk, and fantasy, all rolled in one. Valjeanne Jeffers is one of those authors who can make words drip color. I had a ball exploring her world. I was captivated by the surreal dreamscapes Karla and Joseph ebbed in and out of, and the utilitarian society in which they spent their waking lives. Immortal is one of the most unique blends I have had the pleasure of reading in some time. Future collides with past. Magic, with science. This is one cool ride, and I am compelled to recommend this piece." Edward Uzzle, author of NETERS Issue 0 www.daathrekh.com

I read Immortal and was very impressed with the story. Thompson created mystery and kept me wanting to read more and more! I've actually read the book twice! I loved and it and can't wait for another one!
