Conrad Greene has been living alone with his dog, Rocky, in the South American jungle. He doesn’t want to be part of the immortal society since his soulmate, Laura, told him she wanted nothing more to do with him. Then a plane crashes into his house and he suddenly has no choice – without him there will be war on a grand scale.
This is the third of A.D. Starrling’s “Seventeen” books and once again it is a breakneck read, full of action and adventure and perfect to lose oneself in after a long day. When Starrling switched characters for the second “Seventeen” novel, I was not sure if that would work for me, but now that I am used to it, I like meeting new immortals and finding out their powers and this book explains much more about how that will continue (hopefully). You can read these novels as stand-alones, but I think it would be more enjoyable to read them in order.
Conrad is an endearing and very “human” character with very recognisable traits. The way that he reacts to what is happening around him is very believeable and, once again from Starrling, makes me want him and his friends to achieve their goal without being over sentimental.
I think this has been a great series which I have really enjoyed reading, and I am very much looking forward to reading more in the future.
