Book Description

“Very occasionally, I will pop up in the historical record. Most of the time I’m not at all easy to spot, because most of the time I’m just a guy who does a thing and then disappears again into the background behind someone-or-other who’s busy doing something much more important. But there are a couple of rare occasions when I get a starring role.” --Adam the Immortal

An oracle has predicted the sojourner’s end, which is a problem for Adam insofar as he has never encountered an oracular prediction that didn’t come true . . . and he is the sojourner. To survive, he’s going to have to figure out what a beautiful ex-government analyst, an eco-terrorist, a rogue FBI agent, and the world’s oldest religious cult all want with him, and fast.

And all he wanted when he came to Vegas was to forget about a girl. And maybe have a drink or two.

“I am probably not the best source when it comes to who invented what. For a long time I thought I invented the wheel.” --Adam the Immortal

The second book in the Immortal series, Hellenic Immortal follows the continuing adventures of Adam, a sixty-thousand-year-old man with a wry sense of humor, a flair for storytelling, and a knack for staying alive. Hellenic Immortal is a clever blend of history, mythology, sci-fi, fantasy, adventure, mystery and romance. A little something, in other words, for every reader.

5.0 out of 5 stars The long awaited sequel arrives. May 4, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
After having really enjoyed "Immortal", I eagerly awaited "Hellenic Immortal".

I was not disappointed.

If you haven't read "Immortal" - you should - but you don't need to read it before this book. This is a sequel in that it continues the story line, but it is self-contained.

Gene Doucette (or is it Doucette Gene?) is a great story teller.

Typographically - the all caps sections got tedious, in "Immortal 3" (I'm not done with Adam - I hope Gene isn't either) I hope he tries some other method.

I recommend this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Amazing Adventure! May 3, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
"Hellenic Immortal" is an amazing continuance in the world of Adam the Immortal. Once again the dynamic adventures of his present day life intermingles with something from his long life's past, sending him on a quest to undo a previous wrong that he had not intended to do. In his own words, Adam admits to the mistakes he has made and knows without question that it is up to him to find a solution to a very bad situation that has reared its ugly head in the present. With the help of friends, old and new, his journey across the world quickly begins.

Along the way, Adam's story is full of vivid tales and images of lands and legends only known in history books, and then some that are not known at all. Though he clearly has an opposing view on most academic reviews, considering he has lived through most of it, with an occasional mind-clearing drink, some deep personal thought, and maybe a little sex, he manages to takes it all in stride and does what he knows he must do. If someone in his path has troubles and needs a hand, he will somehow find a way to help them too.

Overall, Adam the Immortal is an enchanting character to follow, and like it or not, he is a good guy, a warrior, and sometimes even a hero. I truly recommend the "Hellenic Immortal" to anyone who loves a book that has a taste of it all. Should there be another, I will gladly take the adventure with him again.

4.0 out of 5 stars Slow at first but picks up nicely -- A great read! August 22, 2012
By Mike P.
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
"Adam" is immortal and isn't sure how or why. However, he can be hurt or killed through normal means (though he can't get sick), so he's spent 30,000 plus years just avoiding trouble and trying to be a nice guy all around. At first, the premise appears lame and uninteresting (no special powers? no real explanations?) but the writer has done a great job with the premise, dialogue and plot. In this sequel(Immortal is the first in the series -- you should read this first!), Adam finds himself involved in a mysterious eco-terrorist plot and travels the world to help unravel this mystery.

Like the first one, the author introduces more ancient or mythical creatures -- in the first one it was guest apperances by demons, vampires, iffrit, pixies and this one focuses mainly on satyrs, a lone dryad and lycanthropes. This story is a little slow at first and not quite as engaging as the first one but the plot picks up as you move through it. I saw one critical review that opined on the lack of answers from the first one and lack of characters from the first one, but I didn't mind that. Adam has journeyed in solitary fashion so it's not suprising that steady characters are not present at all times.

I am also impressed with the author's research -- he explains historical concepts and language artifacts as part of the story in a humorious fashion, a bit like having your whacky high school history teacher again (all in a good way). It's a solid, pleasant and entertaining read -- I thoroughly enjoyed it. The author tells a great story, entertaining and engaging. Buy and enjoy!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing after first book May 15, 2012
By Sarah
Format:Kindle Edition
This book left me very disappointed. It picked up shortly after the first book ended, but had almost no returning characters and didn't answer many of the questions I had after reading the first book. I did learn quite a bit about a particular period of Adam's history, but there were so many rambling asides that it was hard to keep track of the many storyline.

I found the humour to be much less than in the first book. The story kept my attention in the second half, but it didn't have the same impact as the first.

Each chapter started with an excerpt from a story about Silenus the Younger. These excerpts didn't really make much sense until late in the book. Then it tied in smoothly, but they were distracting and disjointed for most of the book, especially when the excerpt was on the longer side.

Overall, this was an okay read, and maybe if I had left more time between reading this and first book I might have enjoyed it more. As it was, this second book didn't even compare to the first.

4.0 out of 5 stars Deeper than first book October 23, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A good, light urban fantasy followup to Doucette's 'Immortal'. This book is an entertaining read and provides a fascinating view into human psychology of where gods come from and how legends come about with time (hint, don't skip the chapter prologues and epilogues "as translated and corrected by Ariadne" since they provide some of the most interesting parts of the book)

'Hellenic Immortal' certainly won't be taking a place in my pantheon of life-changing books, but it was a fun read. I enjoyed the first book, 'Immortal' and I felt this followup book was a better, more refined offering. It provides a self-encapsulating story with a few good little twists. It continues one of the most important story arcs from the first book, which, not being resolved, leads me to believe there will be more books coming along. However, both books to date are self-contained chapters that can easily stand alone. We're not left with an unresolved cliff-hanger, just overall unresolved questions about our protagonist.

I've put Doucette on my watch list for the next book and will buy it when it's released. I won't be standing breathlessly awaiting its arrival, hopping from foot to foot but it will be pleasant surprise when it arrives. And that is my recommendation: if you're looking for a pleasant read, with a bit of depth but not TOO much thinking required, this book (and series is for you).
