Editorial Reviews


In creating the ageless Adam, Gene Doucette has conjured up a character as witty as he is old, and as charming as he is depraved. IMMORTAL is by turns thrilling, moving, and deeply, darkly funny. --Eric Garcia, author of Repo Men, Matchstick Men and the Anonymous Rex series

A sui generis Urban Fantasy/Historical/Crime crossover novel, in which pixies, demons, dragons, and vampires are real though few humans know that... Narrated by a wisecracking immortal that s worldly, noir, skeptical without bleak cynicism, and open to surprises; he s half Gilgamesh and half Raymond Chandler. I couldn't put it down! --Jonathan Vos Post, professor of physics and astronomy; co-author with Ray Bradbury & Richard Feynman; semi-finalist for 1996 Nebula Award

Part science fiction fantasy, part action adventure and thriller, Gene Doucette creates the perfect balance of humor and edge-of-your-seat anticipation in this genre-defying story of an immortal man named Adam, who finds himself battling demons and bounty hunters in his eternal search for Eve, the red haired mystery woman who haunts his dreams. Witty and wonderful, with a bite of sarcasm, Immortal is a five star read for any fiction lover. --Lori Hettler, book blogger, The Next Best Book Blog

From the Author

Immortal is the first book in a trilogy I didn't expect to be writing.

That's perhaps a strange thing to say given it is the start of a trilogy, with Hellenic Immortal and Immortal at the Edge of the World being the next two books.  It's also, more or less, the start of a series of novellas called The Immortal Chronicles, which as I write this has four standalone stories with an anthologypending.  All of these books revolve around the narrator, Adam, who isproving both durable as a narrative source and full of new stories.

There's a conversation at the end of Immortal at the Edge of the World which was initially a slightly different conversation taking place in a different part of the world under different circumstances, and found at the end of Immortal.  At some point during the editing process I ended up rewriting that ending and taking out the conversationentirely.  This was an important decision, because it was a conversation that had to happen, and as long as it didn't there was going to have to be more books written. 

It also didn't make it into Hellenic Immortal, because I had a lot of things to say about Adam, and religion, and gods, and the conversation didn't fit with any of that. 

I'm glad I ended up with a trilogy.  Taking what I thought of at the time as a crucial plot piece out of Immortal made it a better book, and it gave me time to learn more about Adam.It turned out I had a lot more questions for him than one book couldhave possibly contained.  I still have questions, three novels and four novellas later.  With any luck, I'll never run out of them.
