REVIEW BY MERISSA - Immortal (The Awakening Series #2) by Dean Murray


Young Adult, Contemporary, Paranormal


Dying sucks for everyone, but for Selene there are added complications.
Becoming one of the Awakened, a group of godlike beings, should have been the end of Selene’s worries. Instead, dangerous people who want the secrets she hid away in a past incarnation are hunting her, and every time Selene uses her abilities she pays a price—losing memories that are impossible to get back.
Jace, Selene’s hunky ex, has promised to protect her, but when Selene is kidnapped by Jace’s brother Kyle—who she was married to before Jace came into the picture—things get strained.
Without Kyle’s help, Selene can’t save the people she cares about, but trusting Kyle could have unfortunate consequences.
Immortal is a 65,000 word novel. Immortal is preceded by Reborn and followed by Endless.

5 out of 5 (exceptional)

I received this ARC from the author in return for a fair and honest review.

So what happens when you start reading a book and find out that not only does it involve insta-love but also love triangles - both of which you hate?! You carry on reading, that's what! Because by the time you realised, you were already hooked into the story and there wasn't a snowball's chance in hell of putting it down until it was finished. That's what happens when you read a book by Dean Murray.

Immortal is the second book in The Awakening Series and continues exactly where Reborn finished. You find out that Kyle and Selene were actually together WAY before Jace and Selene were. So how does Kyle fit into the scenario? I was fully prepared to dislike Kyle, after all, Jace and Selene were the ones that needed to be together, right? The trouble is I couldn't actually dislike him. You will have to read the book yourself to understand why but trust me, he's not a straightforward "villain".

There are quiet times where Selene (and you) find pieces out of the puzzle and there are also times of action, fighting and battles. Then there are the emotional times that you become invested in.  

This story continues to be intriguing and complex with plot twists and turns that keep you on your toes. It was completely un-put-down-able and I loved every moment. Even though this book deals with tropes that I usually find irritating, the way Immortal has been written makes it a pleasure to read. Highly recommended to all fans of Young Adult, Contemporary Paranormal.
