Overview

An endless love, for an endless price.

Jack's immortality is exposed when he prevents a liquor store heist, forcing him to flee to protect his secret-a secret not even he understands. But when he meets Leah Winters-a mirror image of his decades-lost love, Lydia-his very soul is laid bare. He begins to question his sanity. Is she real, and if so, what does that mean for Jack and his secret?

Jack's not the only mystery man in town. A stranger named Artagan hints at knowledge Jack is desperate to possess. But can he trust Artagan, or does the dark newcomer harbor deadly secrets of his own?

As Jack's bond with Leah grows, so does the danger to her life. Jack must discover just how much he is willing to risk in order to save the woman he already lost once.

My Soul Immortal (Fated Eternals) by Jen Printy I loved the beginning of this story, it pulled me right in. But somewhere along the way I got frustrated with Jack's bemoaning his torturous immortal existence. The story is told through Jack's eyes, it is his voice that didn't resonate with me. I couldn't like him, he came across as weak and whiny, but full of bluster. This is a tale of star-crossed lovers with a unique twist. Upon relocating to Portland, Maine, Jack meets Leah, who looks exactly like his lost love Lydia. I liked Leah, she was smart, innocent, and head-strong. Her brother, Grady, added dimension to both her character and to Jack's. I liked all the secondary characters, anything that took Jack out of his own thoughts was a plus for the story.  The author had a nice command with her descriptive prose, her writing placed you directly into the scenes. But then Jack would start in on his woe-is-me, my poor lonely heart, I don't deserve to be happy, I am such a pathetic loser... When Artagan, a relative of Death, finally shows up, he spoon feeds Jack some answers. At this point I threw my hands in the air. As you can tell, I was frustrated, which does mean I was involved in the story.  I will say that if you can get through the first three quarters of this book without giving up, you will find things start falling into place. The twists that Ms. Printy exposes makes this a better story than just about the star-crossed lovers as it started out. Perhaps this is because the focus shifts and becomes much larger than Jack. In the larger picture we start to see how the most powerful of the immortals use the weaker as pawns in their own power plays. Artagan is perhaps the most interesting character and it will be interesting to see where the story goes from here. I wouldn't really call the ending a cliffhanger but I will say the whole game is about to change. Format/Typo Issues: My review is based on an ARC version. **Originally written for "Books and Pals" book blog. May have received a free review copy.** May 14, 2014

3.5★ I enjoyed this book. I wasn’t sure in the beginning I would. It started out a bit slow and the back and forth was a bit much in the beginning. But I really ended up enjoying it and had a hard time putting the book down. The Mystery to what Jack is kept me glued to the page… the same with Leah…. It was clear early on that there is something more to her, but not what. The book really picks up after the first 30 pages and the pace increases to a steady and enjoyable pace. I also really liked the concept of the story and liked that we learn along with Jack what was going on. Some of the things happening were a bit too convenient for me to fit in the story but it really didn’t bother me all too much. The beginning also reminded me a bit f the Vampire Diaries (TV show) in the beginning with the whole doppelganger theme. But again not too much and it had enough of its own content to not bother me too much and be new and fresh. Neither Jack, nor Leah were my favorite both had a semi annoying site to them, but overall I enjoyed them. Another thing that bothered me a bit was Grady and his flip-flopping attitude towards Jack. It just didn’t feel right and a bit forced like just to be there for the drama. I absolutely loved Ed and his shop. But by far my favorite was Artagan and I really wanted more of him and I have high hope for that in the next book. Overall I enjoyed it and ended up enjoying it more than I thought I would and after the cliffhanger I’m curious to see what happens next. I rate it 3.5★

Yes Notes and Opinions: This book was fabulous and I wish I had my own copy. It was well paced and the characters were all alive. I love paranormal titles and this one hit it out of the park for this reader. I started it a few days ago and couldn't put it down. I do with it was longer but other than that it was perfect. The romance, characters, and story come together to create this wonderful story that I can't wait to dive into to the next one. I really loved not knowing what Jack was to start off with. It created a wonderful mystery aspect to this story and the fact that he was haunted by his past and frustration just made him feel real.

Jack Hammond learned at a young age that he is immortal. Sadly the woman he loved, Lydia was not and he lost her many years ago. Zip ahead to present day and he finds himself in a liquor store robbery. He is fatally shot but beats feet to keep from being noticed. He relocates to Portland, Maine to start new. Then he meets Leah Winters he is struck by how she looks like Lydia. The more he gets to know Leah, the more they fall for each other. Then there is Artagan. He knows what Jack is and why he is immortal. But he requires a steep price for this information. Jack has to decide how far he is willing to go to get answers but keep Leah safe at the same time. This is an interesting take on immortality and second chances. I had a little of the Highlander feel going into this book. Jack just discovers that he can’t die and the love of his life does. He doesn’t know what is going on so he just exists and regrets losing Lydia. I think this was a good story although slow in getting rolling. Once it did I really got into it. I think it was very well written and is a good start to a series. This is one worth checking out. I received My Soul Immortal from the author for free. This has in no way influenced my opinion of this book.

This book is a fantastic read! From the beginning I was hooked. Jen Printy wove a tale that is so wonderfully refreshing. At first I thought this would be another vampire tale, don’t get me wrong, I love vampires as well as the next girl, but I was thrilled by Printy’s immortals. I don’t want to give away any of the story. You. Need. To. Read. This. Book. Printy’s tale begins with a shooting. She keeps up the fast pace throughout the whole book. But she also delves into the lives of the characters so well that you become a part of them. I absolutely love the romance between Jack and Leah and how Printy exposes their history just enough to make it tantalizing and keep you reading way past that time when you really should have started dinner for your family. I couldn’t stop! The writing was great, I did wonder about a female writing from a male’s perspective, but I think Printy wrote Jack very well. I also think she did well with writing a character who was living in modern times, but grew up in a time period when things were done very differently. I loved Artagan as well! His motives were always in question, until the final moments. This book also has a great ending. I love that the revelations keep coming up until the very end. I am hooked and I can’t wait for the next book. I give it 5 stars because I will re-read this until the next one comes!

Don't you just love it when you get a book that is completely different from anything you have read before? I know I do, which is why I thoroughly enjoyed this story by Jen Printy. She has set up a world completely different from anything I have read before, with not a vampire or werewolf in sight. Instead, it is a whole new world, most of which you learn from Jack's point of view. This as well makes a nice change, to read it mainly from the male's perspective. The writing and editing were fantastic and I didn't spot any errors in here at all. There is a lot that goes on, from how we first meet Jack, to his moving to Portland, to meeting Leah and so on. That being said, I did feel that certain parts of the book could have done with being tightened up somehow. It just felt a bit 'slow' in places, which is not a bad thing! For a fresh and new story with excellent world building and characters, then I can definitely recommend this book. I am looking forward to reading more in this series, as I certainly want to know how the new trainee copes!! * I received this book from the author in return for a fair and honest review. * Merissa Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!

Sometimes being immortal is not all it's cracked up to be. Jack Hammond, an immortal, finds this out when he has to endure decades alone after the loss of his soulmate. Suicide is not an option, nor can he end his existence via the gunshots of liquor store robbers. Finally life changes for the better when he escapes to Maine and bumps into the clone of his lost love in Leah Winters. He also meets an intriguing guy named Artagan—kind of a Jack Nicholson character, who seems to have all the answers, past and future. In MY SOUL IMMORTAL, Author Jen Printy poses questions that have plagued humanity since the beginnings of time. How long does love last? It is truly eternal? What price will one pay for true love? And is it worth it? And most importantly, once you find true love in a single person, over the test of time, does it change or remain constant, and if you find it again in a different time or world, will you recognize it? Brilliant character development and a plot with a different kind of twist make this a Paranormal Romance for the ages. The author has an unusual talent for drawing you in, setting you up, and then throwing you an unexpected curve ball that gets your turning pages faster. She ends it conveniently 'open-ended,' leaving you begging for more.

My Soul Immortal is a different spin on a tale about an immortal his soul mate. Jack has been alive for over 100 years and never ages, which means he is constantly moving from place to place to keep his secret. He meets Leah, a woman who looks exactly like his long lost fiancé, Lydia. He wonders if it is her and questions everything about the beautiful Leah. Meanwhile, Leah feels a pull towards Jack and has no idea why. Jack tries to stay away from her, but neither can fight the attraction they have towards one another. I enjoyed the fact that this book was told from Jack’s POV. His feeling and thoughts allowed the reader to experience his angst and torment over the guilt of his father and fiancé’s deaths. He has been punishing himself for a long time because of that guilt, even trying to find ways to end his existence, and failing. Jack is very troubled and cynical, so he questions everything about everyone, not trusting the world around him. I found that to be a very realistic trait of a man who loved so deeply, lost so much, and has had to live for such a long time with all of that torment. There is enough in this book to keep any reader engaged and entertained. I enjoyed this book and think anyone that likes fantasy would, too. *Copy provided for review.

What's the point of being immortal when you have nothing to live for? That is the very question Jack has been wrestling with for a very very long time. Once the love of his life is gone he no reason to go on living but no way to die either and he has certainly tried. But nothing could have prepared him for Leah or the blue eyed stranger and the part the stranger would play in both their lives. This was an intense and highly detailed read. I admit the first half of the story was a little slow for me and didn't give much of a clue as to what was going on. I found myself skimming a bit but once we actually learned what was going on I was absolutely hooked! I absolutely loved the counsel of immortals and the folklore and stories about them were fascinating.  I suspect we haven't seen the last of these sons and daughters of Death and I am very interested in learning more about them and the fates of Jack and Leah.  This book was a bit different and I really enjoyed the story once I got into it and in my opinion My Soul Immortal is worth a read.

Star-crossed lovers with an immortal twist! Jack’s immortal and hides this fact from the world. When his secret’s exposed, he relocates to another city and continues his off-the-grid lifestyle. His new start hits a brick wall when he meets Leah, a woman that so resembles his lost love Lydia, and he fears for his sanity. A stranger named Artagan arrives in town, knows Jack’s secret, and warns Jack Leah’s in danger. Jack must discover what Artagan isn’t telling him and hope it’s enough to save the woman he loves. The first few paragraphs sucked me into the story. I wanted to know who Jack really was, why he was immortal and how Leah’s existence related to Lydia, if at all.               Ms. Printy’s voice and imagination kept me turning pages, eagerly anticipating the answers I sought. My interest waned about a third of the way into the book. For me, Jack’s immortal angst weighed on the plot and slowed the pacing. Several scenes were presented with circumstances that were conveniently resolved and gave away what could have been great foreshadowing for a couple of big reveals. Jack and Leah’s relationship proceeded at more of a normal pace versus the inst-love/lust/like some romances present. I enjoyed the stronger connection that grew over time, although I will say Jack’s feelings for Leah were better shown and developed than Leah’s for Jack. That, however, could definitely relate to Jack being immortal and the narrator of the story. Artagan came back onto the page farther into the story, and the pace picked up. He definitely added mystery, intrigue and balance to the plot. I look forward to the next book in this series. Each of the characters left me with a positive curiosity, and that’s a great hook to recommend for a series.

This book had me from the prelude. Guns in my face tend to do that. We never did find out what Jack is but that just makes you look forward to the rest of the series. Paranormal, action, romance this book has a bit of everything so you don't leave feeling empty.

I thoroughly enjoy Printy’s writing style.  It’s light and approachable with just a hint of mystery and darkness.  She presents a very well thought out yet enlightened and intriguing view of ‘Death’ as an individual.  Mythology and children’s rhymes work their way through this tale, really making you think and wonder.  I did find that the story started to drag a few times when we were caught up in the mythology behind it, but that was quickly remedied. You don’t really get to know much about either of the main characters’ pasts, other than the fact that Jack had a very long one.  It made it quite hard to get to know them well.  They are quite well developed in the present, which means that you can fairly easily follow along with their current lives.  I found the supporting cast to be quite unique and just as well developed as the main characters.  They were a varied lot that captured my attention. As a whole this was a fairly enjoyable read.  Printy captured my attention and imagination with her unique and well thought out storyline.   Please note that I received a complimentary copy of this work in exchange for an honest review.

MY SOUL IMMORTAL is the heart wrenching story of Jack, Lydia, and Leah. Jack is a man who cannot die, and when he’s shot trying to stop a robbery, he knows it’s time to move on. So he picks a new town at random and goes there in search of his next life. He runs into Leah Winters, a young woman and gifted artist who happens to be the exact image of his lost love, Lydia. Jack is drawn to Leah as much as she is to him, but how can he reveal his true nature without losing her? In the meantime, a strange man named Artagan is shadowing Jack – does he have information Jack needs or does he have his own wicked agenda? MY SOUL IMMORTAL has wonderful and memorable characters in Jack and Leah. I felt bad for Jack, losing his soul mate and not being able to join her in the afterlife due to his immortality. Jack is wandering through life, making few friends, spending a lonely existence…until Leah. The author brilliantly portrays the characters through depths of emotion and they serve to heighten the action. When Artagan, the dark stranger, approaches Jack with the potential answers to all his questions, Jack is wary. Yet Artagan may prove to be the best ally Jack could ever hope for, unless he has his own motives for helping Jack. MY SOUL IMMORTAL is a beautiful tale of love lost and found, with elements of reincarnation and paranormal entities woven throughout. And that’s only Book 1!

This was an amazing story that kept you on your toes, in the beginning wondering what or who Jack was. Jack couldn't Die and he was over 100 years old. I loved this story and the fact that it kept me on my toes. Jack was a strong character, he didn't know what he was and was in search of this info, but he was also living all these immortal years with a huge loss, the love of his life from centuries ago. Living a life constantly moving around the world with the toss of a dart to determine his next location. This last toss took him to Portland, ME and just so happens to change his life forever. Leah, a girl with questions of her own working in a coffee shop in Portland, Me. She is a college student and an artist who can't explain her paintings. One run in literally changed both of their lives forever and questions finally get answered as they journey together to answer them. I also have to say that the secondary characters had amazing character development as well. I thoroughly enjoyed this story of love, loss and second chances. Jenn Printy has incorporated amazing character development and lead these characters on a journey together to find the answers to their own life questions. This story was very detailed oriented and in the most perfect way. You learned a lot about the characters and their history and also their future. I would recommend this book, this amazing story to everyone who wants a different take on the normal paranormal romance. I am excited and eager for more from these characters and Jenn Printy.

I love my paranormal books.   This is a different type of story than I usually read.  First it is told in a males, Jack, point of view next that there isn’t vampires, fairies, or other odd creatures.   Jack is just immortal.  He cannot die.  He lives, eats, works, plays, and falls in love.   The problem is that he lives longer than the girl he falls in love with and someone would rather see him murdered. The romance in this book is amazing.   It is tactful, respectful, and so steamy!   It was interesting to see how it unfolds from the man’s eyes, but just as wonderful as if it had been told from Leah’s point of view.    The respect between Jack and Leah was perfect.   It was interesting to watch Jack take his manners from growing up, some 170 years ago, and bring them into the future.   He bows, opens doors, sleeps on the floor, all due to his upraising.  Red Adept Publishing is a company that I have worked with many times in the past and they have not let me down as of yet.   I would certainly recommend My Soul Immortal to all my friends.

My Soul Immortal (Fated Eternals Book 1) Jen Printy Review from jeannie zelos book reviews I found this quite a slow book to begin, an enjoyable tale but very focussed on the day to day life of Jack and his attraction to Leah. Once the pace picked up though it was a fun read. Its a mix of real life romance twisted with a paranormal slant, not the usual vampires or werewolves, but Soul types and Immortals who run human lives and deaths. Its the death part that took Lydia away from Jack so many long years ago when they were so young. In a tragic irony her father had tried to control who she married, which lead in a sorry twist of fate to her death. As it happens though, it's all part of the Immortals plans - but then plans can go wrong, some people can turn fate to their own wishes if clever enough, and as always there are hiccups beyong anyone's control. Thats what happens to Leah, she's a mirror image of Lydia, Jack's long lost beloved. Curious he gets closer to her and the duo find an attraction both had never experienced. Its as if they are meant to be together - but are they? Will it upset Fate and the Immortals plans for them to find happiness. will Jack get his heart broken all over again. What's the menaning behind Leah's strange dreams? There's a long haul ahead for them if it is to work out and they need help. Its a fun read, a romance with a difference. Its not a heartstopping passionate story but one to wonder - is this what life is really like? Who knows really whether we're just playthings of some immortal deities or whatever..... Another reviewer mentioned a cliffhanger at the end, which did put me off at first as I have a real dislike of those. There isn't a cliffhanger in the widely accepted sense, this story ties up neatly but the ending does leave a fairly stupendous bit of news that will lead to the next book. Stars: Four, fun read.

Fated Eternals 1: My Soul Immortal I want to start off saying that I am not a romance fan. When this came up for blog tour, something made me grab it up. It sounded like such a different storyline - and ended up completely surprising me. Jack has been alive for over 100 years - and not aged physically a day. Not only that, but he heals very quickly and he has no idea why. He loved once - loved completely - and lost her. He has never gotten over this, but when he meets a random stranger, he not only feels things he hasn't felt in a long time - but part of him knows that this is his lost love. What a fascinating story. It brings a whole new light to the idea of reincarnation and that one true love. It's a great story, mysterious, and it keeps you so interested in the story that you just can't put the book down. My first night reading, I was up til 3am still reading because I wanted to know what was going to happen next. This is not my first Red Adept Publishing book and I'm not one of those people that really pay a lot of attention to who published the book, BUT I have not gone wrong with this company yet. They really know what they're doing when it comes to choosing books. I not only will read more books they publish, but I will also be finishing this series. Great job, Jen. :) Note: I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

Author Jen Printy brings us a whole new twist on fate. My Soul Immortal is well written, well told and has the power to suck the reader in and leave them wanting more, in a good way. I am so looking forward to the next book in the series. There HAS to be a series, right? The only downside I noticed with this book has nothing to do with the author or story but with the proofreading and publishing. If it were proofread better, it would have been that much better but it still wasn't as bad as some books.
