  1. This is a second novel in a series of suspended belief novels Those type of novels I guess a person could call cotton candy for the brain A lot of fun and high action follows as our intrepid heroes are sent to investigate a kidnapping of a medical examiner in New Mexico Seems she disappeared after a body of about 150 years old turned up on her morgue slab Oh yeah, this guy just recently died Could he possibly have been an immortal Could there be Gosh, read the book and find out A lot of fun and [...]


  2. 3.5 5I quite enjoyed Dean Crawford s debut novel Covenant, so I happily picked up his second book Immortal.Officer Enrico Zamora is called to a gunfight in the desert of New Mexico The man is using an old musket shooter is he part of a re enactment group Zamora is forced to kill the man to save the tourists he s holding at bay His body is delivered to Medical Investigator Lillian Cruz What she finds is stunning He has smallpox scars and a musket ball buried deep in one of his bones But, the man [...]


  3. I hadn t read an action thriller for many years, but was tempted to dip my toe back into the water after spending fun time with Dean at a crime festival He said his research was crucial and, boy, does it show on the page Impeccable research lends a weighty scientific backbone, which genuinely makes you think about the world we live in, to a thrilling read As an American Civil War nut, it didn t disappoint on that front either Dean is the real deal and I am straight into his debut Covenant for E [...]



  4. The body of a gunshot victim makes its way to a morgue in Santa Fe which results in the remarkable discovery that the body was over a hundred years old Additionally, the body was riddled with smallpox scars and part of a musket ball was found lodged in the leg.Thus begins Dean Crawford s second novel, IMMORTAL As dynamic as this initial premise is the end result of the novel proves to be far complex and of course contain the highest levels of espionage, government concealment and corporate gree [...]


  5. Lets be honest at the start I haven t finished this book so this review is based on the first few chapters Once I finished reading everything, but have since resolved life is too bloody short to read crap.The first chapter read well and I was quite excited by the characters in the pathology lab Then we were introduced to an unsubtle and overly obvious bad guy who spoke in unrealistic dialogue about an unbelievable plot with a thin and unbelievable character So far, so bad Then we meet the charac [...]


  6. The next Michael Crichton I wouldn t go that far, publishers Good line to sell a book, but Dean Crawford is a mere hack churning out the same kind of thriller you ve read many of which isn t as much of a slur as it sounds, as Immortal is bloody good fun.High concept idea Check I think a Civil War veteran still alive today and some Fountain of Youth eugenics fit that bill Cheesy lead characters Check Ethan Warner Nicola Lopez are about as cliched a duo as you could probably dream up, one suave an [...]


  7. Crawford s plot centres on humanity s quest for immortality hence the title or, at the very least, increased longevity I only did science to GCSE level and that was quite a while ago so, to me at least, the science bits are on the plausible edge of bonkers It also helps that his plot is couched in recognisable social and environmental concerns that are the fodder of our everyday news, which grounds the science in a world that is familiar It only took me a day to read this book, and that is proba [...]


  8. Believable science, despicable villain s and likable fallible characters make this a great read You are never quite sure who are the good guys and who are the bad guys except for the main character, Ethan Warner,ex marine now bounty hunter and covert investigator for the government Ethan seems to just take each new twist in stride One hundred and seventy year old veterans of the Civil War, who haven t aged a day since the war,an evil pharmaceutical company owner searching for a potion to reverse [...]


  9. Sounds interesting from the blurb on the back but took too long to get to the good bits of the story Lots and lots of characters, bit hard keeping up First half of the book bit slow but really enjoyed the last half once everyone finally got into position Didn t realise this is the 2nd book with Ethan but a stand alone story anyway Probably wont get the 3rd if there is one.Bit preachy in parts but overall a fair to good read.


  10. This book was good, but not as good as the first, Covenant The story line was interesting and Crawford obviously does his research thoroughly That backfired a little, with the technical and professional dialogue sometimes boring to a layman Overall this was a good book and I would recommend it to action junkies, but my main pet peeve with Dean Crawford s books is him giving his characters stupid names Saffron Oppenheimer


  11. Another adventure featuring Ethan Warner, similar to the Dean Crawford s first book Covenant its a fast paced actioner that i can perfectly see getting turned into a movie Featuring 140 year old men, eugenics, some civil war, an evil old codger trying to find immortality an a nice little twist towards the end i admit i should have seen coming but didn t, so obvious when its explained Looking forward to the next adventure Apocalypse, which i have sitting on my shelf.


  12. I enjoyed the twists and turns of this quite plausible plot line I found it believable up to a point but am sure it would never be true I enjoyed the book but it is no summer easy read, I did find in some parts that the story was a little drawn out but as I persevered I understood why the plot was a bit slow in parts A good well thought out plot.


  13. I did enjoy this book and you can tell the author has done bucket loads of research, but like with the first novel, I started skimming the deep scientific parts But that s just me If you like your thrillers with lots of action, you will enjoy this if you like lots of scientific in depth jargon, you ll freaking love it I certainly look forward to the next book in the series.


  14. I thought Immortal was a good thriller and I enjoyed reading it from start to finish Why then only 3 Although I enjoyed reading this book and the plot was really interesting and held my interest all the way through I had picked the book up initially as it was described as Michael Crichton for the next generation Immortal did not live upto this statement in my opinion.


  15. That was exactly the right sort of book for my summer holiday reads Easy to read and fun thriller Though I disagree with the conclusions the characters seem to come to about over population but that s here or there.


  16. This book would have gotten a five star from me but the end ruined it all The last 10 pages threw me off Why ruin a good story that way Ugh Still a fantastic book I am a science nerd so was easy to understand the ideas laid down.


  17. Books on extending the natural lifespan make for good reading, be it a Tarzan or the latest medican fiction This book is not subtle in terms of the plot, but has many twists and turns with an explosive ending Great read, and somewhat feasible unlike most other books.


  18. Well I struggled to get into the rhythm of this book, quite liked the basic story but it sort of dies a little in the middle it s plot is basic about a group of people that have lived 150yrs to present day Worth reading I ve read worse


  19. Won my copy of this in a giveaway here on , and am so glad I did This book was one of the most enjoyable reads I have come across in a long time I d highly recommend it to anyone who s considering reading it



  20. Amazing, loved this book Fast paced action with an intrigue plot an reprehensible villain I definitely recommend this and will be reading the others in this series.







  21. Great storyline, clear cut good vs evil in a battle for immortality Loved all that and didn t particularly love any of the characters They bugged me a bit and were pretty angsty I think this is a series and not sure if I d pick up another, although it was a cool and imaginative story line


  22. Really enjoyed the storyline and the way the book flowed Liked the way it was written, seemed quick paced and kept me wanting
