Publisher's Summary

Asher Hearst is a college student, and the closest thing he has to a superpower is being able to take a punch. Basically all he has going for him is an edgy sense of humor - and that he can't die.

As a small-time fixer, he's about to get involved in a job best left alone. After he gets involved with witches and the supernatural, there's no turning back.

While Asher becomes more and more involved with the secret world of the supernatural, he shifts from a small-time fixer to the crux of the problem. Travel across space and time will bring him unexpected romance.

Immortal: Curse of the Deathless is a humorous, action-filled story with gritty, horror-inspiring elements. It spans multiple worlds, set in both a contemporary, urban setting, and the classic land of the Fae.

    "Action packed and kept me listening"

    Immortals, witches, weres, fey, and other things populate this book. The main character is a young man who is immortal. I think there was a prequel I missed when he realizes this because there were several references to past events.

    I did enjoy this but there were several things that prevent me from giving it 5 stars across the board. There were a few errors in either pronunciation or grammar that I noticed and distracted me. In addition to the regular blood and guts fight scenes (which I could handle), there was a torture scene which was too much for my tastes. Also, the ultimate bad guy that they ended up fighting was almost cartoonish - I liked the earlier, more believable bad guys. The book ends in an obvious "there is a sequel" coming way with some loose ends still out there. So, with those caveats in mind, I do recommend it.

    "Urban Fantasy Comedy with a twist"

    This is a solid formal debut from an independent author. Urban Fantasy is my favorite genre, and this edition does not disappoint. The protagonist, Asher Hearst, is multifaceted in all the ways you want your main character to be.

    The book is jam-packed with plot. Thinking back on it, I'm amazed everything was fit into a single release. There are wizards and witches with some intriguing magic, faeries (fae) of many varieties, a fair amount of action, not too much family drama, warm romance, noble acts, interesting side characters, and a straightforward plot with plenty of twists and turns. The book doesn't rely on too many stale urban fantasy tropes. The supernatural infrastructure isn't a focal point, but it feels fresh.

    Unless your sense of humor is way off-base, you will find yourself chuckling at and with the protagonist. The humor isn't shoehorned in, and Asher's attitude is as much of a superpower as his immortality. Though the immortality aspect is, of course, an important element, there is still a question of just how much Asher can really take. Considering he's going up against literal gods and inter-dimensional beings, his survival really isn't guaranteed. Indeed, I am not going to give away whether or not he does survive. It wouldn't be the first time an author sacrificed their main character.

    I can see how the narrator might not be everyone's cup of tea, but I felt he was good fit for Asher. He did a fine job portraying the secondary characters, as well. He hammed it up a bit with some, as you will find, but the ham seems appropriate in retrospect.

    I do hope Mr. Edgington is able to produce more works of a similar caliber. I will be one of the first to purchase them.

    "Good story, narrator killed it for me"

    Couldn't finish. Writing was okay and there were original story points and good humor. The narrator is why I "put it down". Example: First half had a sex scene that could have melted steel ... if the narrator hadn't read it like stereo instructions. Acme 1990s stereo instructions, the kind with no remote, one tape cassette player and "Made in WHERE?!istan."

    "humorous."

    this was a very entertaining book. A lot happens in this book, it's a lot of action. but the humor of the main character Asher is the most enjoyable! I would recommend this book to those who like paranormal books.
