This was an interesting book.

It is a good job that the premise of this novel peaked my interest from the moment I read the blurb. The idea of a man who is older than written history (50-60,000 years old I believe) is something that fascinates me. That fascination is what carried me through a weak opening half.

That first 40-50% was a real struggle to get through. To start with there are 2 separate timelines running side by side mixed in with a number of flashbacks into other various times. Each of those flashbacks were interesting in themselves but it was a struggle to read them out of context which is pretty much how they were written.

About the half way mark though, things begin to grow interesting and soon enough this book becomes a real page turner. Adam (only his most recent name) our immortal protagonist, is being hunted and it is at this half way mark when events really start to flow. It doesn't take a genius to figure out why people might want to hunt down and capture an immortal man but it was well handled in this book and still exciting.

By the end of the book I found that I thoroughly enjoyed what I had read and more importantly, I am interested in reading the next novel in the series. The only thing holding me back was how this book ended. For a relatively wordy book, some aspects of this story were teased and never properly resolved to any kind of satisfaction. I understand that this is probably being set up for future books but there was so little story progression that I felt exhausted waiting for something to happen.

Overall though this was a good book and more importantly it felt fresh. I have read books with protagonists who are thousands of years old before, but never one who has been alive through the entirety of written history and I felt the author dealt well with that.

Not only did the good reviews draw me to this book, the Immortal premise attracted me favourably, with its tentative link to time-travel, which I'm a great fan of.
The only concept that made me pause before buying was the inclusion of Demons, Pixies and Vampires etc, which I tend to avoid on a permanent basis.
I needn't have worried, as they complement the story rather than detract.

I was a bit peeved to see that the book was only available on Kindle, as I'm a book person, who enjoys the solid feel of a real book in my hands. Nevertheless I pursued this book (and the follow-up Hellenic Immortal) through the publishers, and received them in the post in good time.
Despite the extra cost of postage I now, having just finished this book, feel justified in my pursuit - this book is FANTASTIC!

The Immortal's occasional dip back in time to anywhere in the last fifty thousand years, or whatever, is exciting and enchanting, with previous loves and lives effortlessly brought back to life by his reminiscences; the modern day parts are always intriguing too, and you find yourself moving effortlessly through the pages, enhanced by the author's comfortable style.

I found myself utterly surprised that the occasional Pixie or Vampire actually slotted in well with the whole Immortal concept, and the fact that the Immortal himself is virtually a non-stop alcoholic! Crazy, I know, but IT WORKS!

If I was to list my top ten books that I'd ever read, this one would be right up there, in the top three at least.

I hope I've tempted you to give it a crack.
Magnificent!!!

I absolutely *loved* the MC's 'voice' in this book - sarcastic, witty and indolent, he's the perfect anti-hero.
About half-way through, I found myself worrying whether the ending would match up to the story so far - but it did, in spades! :-)
And it was only at about 80% that I realised that the book is written in first-person, normally not my favourite, but this story has made me realise that it's only because other first-person books aren't as written by such good storytellers that I didn't like them. It's perfect for Adam's story.

If you like well-written, witty urban fantasy with a dash of non-sparkly vampires, history and mystery, give this a try. It's one of the best books I've read this year.
I hope book 2 is just as good!

I often read books and like them, but am not motivated enough to buy more in the series.
This one Captured my imagination and I have brought all the others because I like the character and the idea he was from the dawn of time.
I like the fact the character is simply a good guy, but willingly to protect himself with the kind of attitude that someone who was born and raised to chase and kill mammoths would have.
I like the fact he has a different take on religion and that he is not superhuman, but has a lot of friends who help him out.
The book really sparked an interest and I find myself thinking about it as I recover from an operation!
I read all kinds of Sci-fi and this is one of the better books.

Thoroughly enjoyed this book. Adam is funny and witty, bordering on alcoholism - he wants to remain under the radar but does have a tendency to spill his own secrets after a drink or two and is also friends with some wonderful mythical creatures. The timeline is fascinating and the book is very easy to read - I devoured it in one sitting and am looking forward to the next in the series
