On the surface, Immortal resembles other teen romances -- girl meets unbelievably handsome and mysterious boy; throbbing hearts ensue. But Nagle's heroine is no hapless Bella, she's a college student with a job, a car, and a mind of her own. Nor is the gorgeous guy an angsty vampire, although he definitely is not one of your usual folk. The plot moves briskly from encounter to threat to road trip to battle, a fine way to spend a couple of winter nights. In the end, the story is as much about how relationships help us to determine the direction of our own lives as it is about hormones. That's what sets this YA novel apart.

This book captured my interest immediately. The characters were intriguing and the mistique of the unknown was unraveled in a way that kept the pace going well. I loved the humor amd the humanity in the story. It was a good introduction to the aelfin world. The issue of philosophy of life for creatures dealing with extreme longevity, similar to Chelsea Quinn Yarbro's St Germaine novels, is one that leads to food for thought. The story of love gorwing and the relationship developing between Len and the stranger is appealing to anyone who has experienced first love. I would like to spend more time with Len and Caeran.
