Publisher's Summary

In his very long life, Adam had encountered only one person who seemed to share his longevity: the mysterious red-haired woman. She appeared throughout history, usually from a distance, nearly always vanishing before he could speak to her.

In his last encounter, she actually did vanish - into thin air, right in front of him. The question was how did she do it? To answer, Adam will have to complete a quest he gave up on 1,000 years earlier, for an object that may no longer exist.

If he can find it, he might be able to do what the red-haired woman did, and if he can do that, maybe he can find her again and ask her who she is...and why she seems to hate him.

But Adam isn't the only one who wants the red-haired woman. There are other forces at work, and after a warning from one of the few men he trusts, Adam realizes how much danger everyone is in. To save his friends and finish his quest he may be forced to bankrupt himself, call in every favor he can, and ultimately trade the one thing he'd never been able to give up before: his life.

From the author of Immortal and Hellenic Immortal comes Immortal at the Edge of the World, the breathtaking conclusion to the best-selling trilogy. Will Adam survive?

Stumbled onto an absolute find!

I have been a member of audible for 3 or 4 years and I think this is the second review I have written. That’s not to say that I haven’t enjoyed many books but more so to indicate just how much this series has grown on me as I have moved through it. To be honest, I read or rather listen as a distraction and often times lose my way in a story and set it aside, coming back to rediscover only the distraction. I wasn’t sure what I had here other than a story of elongated time and ubiquitous existence, and I certainly wasn’t thinking that, had I been reading this instead of listening, that it would be a real page turner.

What gets me into to stories often times is the tone and tempo, and for me that is rarely, from story to story, consistently the same. I must be moody I guess? This series though has something and the recording is a perfect pairing of narrator and author that makes that something unquenchable. Once I was in, I was in for keeps. Carlson is brilliant, adding zest to Doucette’s characters that rarely need a little fleshing out but somehow he makes a speedy story into a flowing 4 dimensional humor fest full of color, blending the immediate with the subtle, making time and content the origami of words.

Brilliantly written. Fabulously brought to life. Hard to put down. If you find this, you are immensely lucky.

Better than book 2

Entertaining, good story. Good mix ofhistory and present, fitting both well into the story. Deadly humour. Better than book 2.

I Hated That It's Over!

Who was your favorite character and why?

Adam. I just enjoyed his casual manner.

Have you listened to any of Steve Carlson’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

The first book that I listed to by Steve was The Spaceship Next Door and while I enjoyed that book very much I thought his performance was mediocre. However, after listening to the three Immortal series I came away with a much better impression of Steve and his performance. It changed my opinion if his narration for the better. I think he did a great job on this series.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

A very casual listen / read with humor. The stories were light but the characters were fantastic. My only extreme reaction was finding out that the fourth book of the series was not available on Audible.

Any additional comments?

Audible - get the fourth book - NOW.

Love this series, book 3 is just as good as first 2!

I love the immortal series for a few reasons. The main character is a blast. The author does what most cannot, Gene Doucette is able to progress the story without making the characters make stupid choices and they have realistic responses to unrealistic situations. I appreciate this more than most in a story! What a great take on the urban fantasy genre!! Also check out the spaceship next door by Gene Doucette loved that book as well!

A masterpiece

I have listened to the first five books in the series and I loved them all. I can't say enough about how much I enjoy them. But I have neglected in my other reviews to give the narrator his due. A good narrator can really make a story come alive and make feel as if you were there. The narrator of this series is Steve Carlson and he is just that kind of person. He is absolutely one of the best.

Quirky!

Good read for those interested in reading about an immortal but entirely human man. Read the earlier books first ...
