Publisher's Summary

New, from the best-selling author of The Spaceship Next Door!

"I thought I'd miss the world." - Adam the Immortal

Adam is on vacation in an island paradise, with nothing to do and plenty of time to do nothing.

It's exactly what he needed: beautiful weather, beautiful girlfriend, plenty of books to read, and alcohol to drink. Most importantly, either nobody on the island knows who he is, or, nobody cares.

"This probably sounds boring, and maybe it is. It's possible I have no compass to help determine boring, or maybe I have a different threshold than most people. From my perspective, though, the vast majority of human history has been boring, by which I mean nothing happened, and sure, that can be dull. On the other hand, nothing happening includes nobody trying to kill anybody, and specifically, nobody trying to kill me. That's the kind of boring a guy can get behind." - Adam the Immortal

Nothing last forever, though, and that includes the opportunity to do nothing. One day, unwelcome visitors arrive in secret, with impossible knowledge of impossible events, and then the impossible things arrive: a new species.

It's all impossible, especially to the immortal man who thought he'd seen all there was to see in the world. Now, Adam is going to have to figure out what's happening and make things right before he and everyone he loves ends up dead in the hot sun of this island paradise.

Immortal and the Island of Impossible Things is the fourth book in Gene Doucette's acclaimed Immortal novel series, and the start of a new adventure for Adam the Immortal man! Catch up on all that's come before with Immortal, Hellenic Immortal, Immortal at the Edge of the World, and the novellas in The Immortal Chronicles and Immortal Stories: Eve.

Fun story

Before I selected this series, I read some reviews that provided negative feedback. I was not sure about the selection but since audio allows you to return it, I have it a try. I have not been able to pull away from the series. I love it, it is funny and light and has a great spin to the immortal and fantasy aspect. Some stories are a little far fetched but still entertaining. I do not always need logic, thank goodness.

Best book in the series

I love the immortal series including the novellas which do not need to be read in any order as the main novels do. The 3rd book in the series was good but to me started to decline just a little or maybe I was just in need of new series since I read all of them in a row. That being said a few months went by and I saw his 4th book in the series came out and am I glad I found it! This book was awesome, it had everything I had come to love about the series!! Adam is funny as always with problems only a 60,000 year old man can have. I love the interplay of all the mythical creatures and how most of the stories humans know are not true. The first 3 books introduced you slowly to all of these creatures. The 4th book now has Adam on an Island filled with all of them as a creature vacation spot. It picks up nicely from the last 3 books and puts adam and these creatures against a never before seen foe!! If you liked the first 3 you will love this one! Oh it ends on a cliffhanger and now I'm dying for book 5!!!
