When Adriana, a brilliant young archaeologist, accepts a position at the Museum of Archaeology in her hometown of Santander, Spain, she never imagines that her new boss has lived through the history she can only study. Iago, the charismatic technical director of the museum, is more than 10,000 years old but appears to be only 35. Iago and his family are longevos - people who never seem to age after reaching adulthood. The ancient family is divided: Iago’s brother and sister seek the source of their longevity in hopes of creating more like themselves, while Iago and his father fear the repercussions of the true Fountain of Youth.
A dangerous game of power and knowledge that has played out over eons becomes even more complicated when Adriana attracts both brothers’ attention - and learns their secret. Filled with science, history, and passion, The Immortal Collection transports the listener through time and space, from the days of cavemen, through the Roaring Twenties, to the charming plazas of contemporary Spain. Ancient history meets cutting-edge research in this modern love story and sweeping historical saga.

I have to say that I was sooo pleasantly suprised by this book. The narration was excellent. Especially considering that it was translated from spanish and there was a lot of Spanish places that had to pronounced correctly.
A book about immortals that aren't vampires was also refreshing. You get a deep insight into the characters and their family connections.
For the romance junkies there's enough of that without it being porn.
So worth the money for this one.
I will still give an adult rating.
"Unexpected and Brilliant"
This book was outstanding - and the story was like nothing I have read before. Will definately read again and again
Lago was my personal favourite and I could understand the way he held back. I enjoyed the way the relationship built with the main female character, Adriana. There was enough depth in the portrayal of the characters to provide interest.
I like the use of two narrators providing the voice for the main male and female characters. Good jobs well done
Not all the living history in a museum is on show.
I will watch for more books and there was opening story lines left for sequels.
