"A really great addition to the ever-growing paranormal book population - with a new and exciting twist. Sure, there’s the always expected romance, but the strength in this story lies in the epic conflict between good and evil. This superbly written, fast-paced novel is complete with truly kick-ass fight scenes, swords and just a touch of sinister magic. I’m eagerly awaiting the next installment in the Immortal Champions Saga." -HemingwayHeroine.blogspot.com

Okay I just finished this book today on the train. And let me tell you It rocked. The characters were cool, Ashton and Julian especially, the plot was very origional and it moved at such a fast past it felt like I was reading a movie. This book felt like it was written by Josh Whedon. It had the perfect blend of entertaintmant, story, and action. If this ever gets picked up to be a movie it'll translate very well. At 6.99 the price was a little steep, I'd of preffered if it were 4.99 but it's still better than all of the 99 cent crap I downloaded from pubit. My only complaint about Immortal Champions has to be the fact that I felt it could have had a more supernatural feel. I feel as if the characters were capable of doing alot more but were muzzeld. The Cover has a very comic book look to it but the Characters didn't do anywhere near as many super human feats as I expected. I understand you have to save some things for sequels, but It was a little to conservative with the fantasy aspect. Hopefully in the next book you guys will let Azarius, Daius, Julian and Ashton let loose, Cause this book hinted that they were very very powerful, I'm hoping that the next one shows it! But aside from that everything else was great. Good humor. Lovable characters and a great ending that leaves you wanting more. Keep em coming and I'll keep bying them.

I saw this on the BN facebook page this weekend and just finished it this morning. And let me just say that I don't know what book "readandwrite" read but it clearly wasn't this one. Immortal Champions was a breath of fresh air in the overpopulated vampire twilight, sooki stackhouse paranormal genre. The characters were apealing and the story moved at a very fast pace. The only negative thing that I can say about it is that it really didn't have a target audience, which may not be a bad thing cause It could appeal to a wide audience. It has action, romance, and suspence. The diaologue can be a bit cheezy at times but it adds to its charm. What people need to remember is that books on pubit are from up and coming aurthors. They do not have big publishing houses and professional editors behind them. I worked in the industry for over 15 years. I've read twilight and the lost hero before they were edited over and over and this book has a much better base than those to did. With the right company behind them Immortal champions can go far. It has alot of potential. I applaud the authors valiant effort and eagerly await the next one.

I had a very boring weekened so I downloaded a couple of pubit books onto my Iphone, The cover of this book was so amazing that I just had to read it first, and I'm happy I did!!! I enjoyed it so much. I'm normally not a into these types of books but I found the characters very appealing. Ashton and Julian especially. Ashton's character was so complex that he just drew me in and didn't let me go. Julian's characters had me heartbroken for him throughout the entire read and everyone else had there moments as well. Lance's character was kind of wonky though, He was described as being a the golden child but I really didn't get that in this book. Something to consider for the next I guess. My only realy really really big complaint was Erica. She was soooooooo annnoooooyyyyinnngg. The way she spoke, her cheesy dream scene, her whole personality just made me sick. I want to give this book a 5 but thanks to her I can only bring myself to giving it a four. Maybe in the next one the authors will kill her off and bring kendra to lead or alter her drastically cause she needs it!

I saw the cover of this book and immediatly thought, Vampires! So jumped all over it. Only to find that there were no vampires in it at all. However I did find myself very intrigued by the showman character. Julian Edwards was astounding and hands down the stand out character in this novel. Ashton was very likeable as well as he is easy to relate to. Varga and Azarius were also a joy, Erica was a little nausiating from time to time and Kendra is way more appealing. She should of been the female lead. With that said I truley enjoyed this beginnging and look foward to seeing what is next in store for my new found friends in Slate City.

Ms. Hopkins and Mr. Salfali put forth a great effort in the first installment of the "Immortal Champions" series. Juggling a diverse cast of characters with a multi-layered plot and intense action scenes is no easy feat, but they manage to pull it off with style. The climactic battle is particularly well-done, and without giving too much away, any fan of swordplay is sure to come away pleased. As the numeral suggests, this is the first book in a series, and the book ends with a nice balance of cliffhanger and resolution, leaving the reader eager for the next installment.

This book was a lot of fun. And though Mr. Salfali is far from a George R. R. Martin and Immortal Champions is not as polished as a Game of thrones or Harry Potter but it's still very entertaining and perfect for when you want to take a break from the complex stuff and just have good, simple, and fun read. Highly recommended.

This book was a lot of fun. It read like a movie. It was serious without taking itself seriously if that makes sense. The main character Ashton is totally relatable and very likable. The supporting characters are good to but don't come off as strong, except for the books villain Varga. But all in all I loved it. Great pace, great action, great humor, and not to heavy on the romance. More books should be like this.

I should have gotten a sample of this book before buying. It seems like it was written by a middle school student. Very bad. I have not finished reading it.
