    One thought on “Immortal: Curse of the Deathless”

    1. This was provided by Netgalley in exchange for a honest review."The list of things I don’t know would fill a book - no, several. Still, I’ll show you how someone who knows nothing can accomplish anything."Asher Hearst is a college student, an avid drinker, a cliché ladies lover, but before anything he’s an immortal. And that sucks.Self proclaimed investigator for the supernatural community (even thought he doesn’t know scraps about it and doesn’t seem to care), he founds himself avoid [...]

    2. I received an e-version of Immortal: Curse of the Deathless from author Derek Edgington for review.Immortal: Curse of the Deathless is a prime example of why I have come to enjoy reading Indie authors. This book is great, no other way to say it.I'll start with the negatives, actually, there is only one, and it is the most prevalent in self-published indie books: typos. There weren't as many as I often encounter, but more than there should be. Note to indie authors: Get good proofreaders, reviewe [...]

    3. I'm not used to reading these types of fantasy stories. It sure was interesting and weird for me. The story-line was good (although it took me awhile to understand what was going on) and well-written. The narrator, Asher who is the Immortal, is very unique in his abilities, his outlook on life and the way he thinks and speaks. That was hard for me to understand, especially at first, getting into the story. I wasn't used to the warped terminology used for descriptions and names given. I would des [...]

    4. If you want a book about witches, weres, faes, Inquisitors, humans and immortals then this is the book to read. If you want a book with plenty of action, throw in a side of humor and let's not forget the romance then this is still the book to read. There's not much this book doesn't have.Asher Hearst is a funny, sarcastic college student who takes on jobs of helping people when they have no where else to turn. The biggest thing Asher has going for him is his immortality. No matter what is done t [...]

    5. This book is absolutely fantastic. It has an immersive plot, fun characters, tons of action and adventure. The protagonist Asher is quirky, fun, and a little bit weird. If you crave a grand adventure chock full of sarcasm, action, adventure, magic and just the right hint of romance, I urge you to pick up this book. You will NOT be disappointed I promise you. I personally devoured this book because I just couldn't put it down. I was riveted from line one.

    6. For me the part of the book I liked the most had to do with the fay court, it was good, it could have been great if for example (view spoiler)[He had somehow been tricked by the ancient fay in a manner that would make his victory bit bittersweet. The 3 impossible tasks seem to have come too easy to him so I expected something more, despite that(hide spoiler)] I enjoyed Asher's quest to see his mother. Unfortunately everything outside the fay court was less enjoyable and occasionally felt rushed [...]

    7. so I give this a 2.5; the comedy was OK, the intro was fast and action packed. MC was confident without being jerk and he his quest to find his mother was fun. Him being immortal lets him play off alot of horrible events casually ex. being physically attacked by Faries. Then it kept going with the Church plot line and i just cared nothing for it, during that last arc he comes into his powers but I could not care, I dropped it after that. It was not bad, just no interesting.The farie plot line is [...]

    8. I found this book to be very interesting. It's not all peaches and cream to be Immortal. I liked that twist. One thing that was a bit confusing for me was Asher's constant thoughts or retorts. Was he breaking the fourth dimension and yelling at the author? Was he correcting the author or the reader? Or were they simply his thoughts in the time of action? I admit it made it hard to read the book as a whole. I found it to be a unique story and great fantasy. I did enjoy reading this book and will [...]

    9. Derek Edgington`s "Immortal: Curse of the Deathless" was entertaining from beginning to end. The story follows Asher Hearst on a journey that takes him from his college campus to a beautifully underwater world and then back again. The character was interesting and had a good sense of humor; his take on the world around him and the other characters elicited quite a few laughs out loud, which attracted some strange looks from the other passengers around me on the train.The story was broken apart i [...]

    10. An interesting story, although the character does show lots of normal flaws he does seem a little resilient for even an Immortal , but I would advise that you stick with the story as it does get better. The constant sticky situations that our hero Asher finds himself in stand out , his methods of extraction do take you by surprise and the action can be quite fluid.Found that especially at the start the tone was just a little too flat and it took quite a while for me to get used to the voice befo [...]

    11. While there is humor and lots of action, most of it feels unmotivated. Plenty of gore, lots of gratuitous sex, incoherent comic book style plotting. No real character development, but since the protagonist is a college student, that may reflect many of that age group. I checked it out from Hoopla accidentally during my first browse of their updated web page and don't know why I finished it since I needed to restart several times just to keep track of what was and wasn't going on.

    12. Fun ReadI really enjoyed reading this book. It's very witty and has lots of action and supernatural characters. I can't wait to read the next one.

    13. I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator or publisher was pretty interesting actually, liked that the plot was pretty solid and the humorous part of it was cool. Asher didn't seem to end a problem and was getting in another altogether how I never knew, he just had that luck, the twins were pretty comicale character development was great and the twists here and there were well placed and exploited, it was a good listening. the second one sounds pretty int [...]
