Tarian lives what seems to be an ordinary life, that is until his father passes away and he is sent to Entente Military Academy. He grows close to Audrey, his Cadet Sergeant, when she rescues him from an attack on their military base. Together they travel to a Guardian of Dare village. It is here that Tarian discovers he is anything but an ordinary person. He is an immortal, the first born since the 1500s. His DNA holds the secret, one that could save all immortals…and he is hunted for it. In the wrong hands, the power of his existence and the knowledge it brings could create great danger for the humans.
Death serum…that is what they call the mysterious solution that was used to kill his father. Tarian and Audrey set off on a journey to find who was behind this killing and those that continue to come to light. The adventure is extremely challenging, physically and emotionally. Friends become enemies, trust is not given freely. Will Tarian and Audrey uncover the truth? Who can they trust…if anyone? Can Tarian come to terms with who he is and overcome the challenges he faces?
This book is packed to the brim with action, bursting at the seams. The author cleverly writes in plot twists that you never see coming. Plot and character development are well done. Each character brings a uniqueness to the story, developing as it is told…turning the plot with it. The world building in this tale is phenomenal. Janelle built an immersive world where immortals live among us and the reader can picture vividly the actions that take place. I loved this book and would recommend it to anyone who loves a novel that brings not just a story, but an adventure!
