From the award-winning series Seventeen comes a high-octane, action-packed twist on immortality. 'My name is Lucas Soul. Today, I died again. This is my fifteenth death in the last four hundred and fifty years.'
Soul is an outcast of the immortal societies. Born of a Bastian mother and a Crovir father, a half breed whose very existence is abhorred by the two races, he spends the first three hundred and fifty years of his life being chased and killed by the Hunters.
One fall night in Boston, the Hunt starts again, resulting in Soul’s fifteenth death and triggering a chain of events that sends him on the run with Reid Hasley, a former US Marine and his human business partner of ten years. From Paris to Prague, their search for answers will lead them deep into the immortal societies and bring them face to face with someone from Soul’s past. Shocking secrets are uncovered and fresh allies come to the fore as they attempt to put a stop to a new and terrifying threat to both immortals and humans.
Time is running out for Soul. Can he get to the truth before his seventeenth death, protect the ones he loves and prevent another immortal war?
This story is filled with fighting action (guns and swords - katana). It is the introduction and start of a series that involve immortal beings. The immortals are not vampires which gives a refreshing take on another kind of paranormal creature.
I liked the friendship and light banter between the main character, Soul, and his business partner, Reid.
A bit of romance is included but not noticeable.
