Immortal - by Steven Savile - An epic adventure in an apocalyptic world

5 of 5 Stars     Review copy

Immortal is about a man without an identity, who wakes in a sleazy hotel room and begins a quest to find out who he really is.  From a Gideon's bible he finds in the room he takes the name Temple.

For me, it was the journey that made this such an enjoyable read.  He's now in a world with silver-eyed dead which Temple comes to think of as The Soulless and he refers to the end of civilization as The Fall.

In his search for a purpose, a thirteen-year-old girl convinces him to save her brother, taken by the Spider Boys. And so it goes.

When Temple reaches his final destination, all is explained, but it's certainly not a happy ending. That's OK.  This is a story that doesn't need a happy ending.  The tale is gritty, at times gruesome, and Temple is an anti-hero with few endearing qualities.

Published by BadPress, Immortal is available now in both paperback and for the Kindle through

It's a great read.  Highly recommended.
