Review: My Soul Immortal by Jen Printy
An endless love, for an endless price.
Jack’s immortality is exposed when he prevents a liquor store heist, forcing him to flee to protect his secret–a secret not even he understands. But when he meets Leah Winters–a mirror image of his decades-lost love, Lydia–his very soul is laid bare. He begins to question his sanity. Is she real, and if so, what does that mean for Jack and his secret?
Jack’s not the only mystery man in town. A stranger named Artagan hints at knowledge Jack is desperate to possess. But can he trust Artagan, or does the dark newcomer harbor deadly secrets of his own?
As Jack’s bond with Leah grows, so does the danger to her life. Jack must discover just how much he is willing to risk in order to save the woman he already lost once.
My Soul Immortal is a book about Jack, an immortal who defies the rules of immortals, he’s not rich, he’s not a vampire, he’s not a werewolf. He is poor, he is lonely and he is miserable. The love of his life, Lydia, died decades ago before they got to start their life together and he has never got over it. He lives a transient life never staying in one place very long and works dead end jobs to ensure he can make ends meet.
Having just moved, he meets Leah, a girl who mirrors Lydia right the way down to the look in her eyes, when a stranger, Artagan, appears Jack has to unravel the past and the present and how Leah and Artagan fit into things.
This story was quite well paced but was very heavy on the romantic elements of the story which took up the majority of the book. The paranormal elements which uncovered the story behind who Artagan was, why Leah looked like Lydia, and uncovered more characters related to them all wasn’t uncovered until quite late in the book and was really interesting and I felt that so much could have been done around this side of the story.
I’m hoping that as this is the first in a series the following books will be more heavy on the paranormal/fantasy elements which I think have a lot of room for manoeuvre and growth.
