HFVBT: Kari Edgren's An Immortal Descent - Review

My thoughts
Book Three in the Goddess Born series - what an adventure! A lot has happened since Book Two. Selah is now on a desperate quest to find her best friend, Nora, and Henry, the love of her life. The travails of Selah's journey kept me on the edge of my seat. Early signs of the peril ahead - Selah is attacked by various animals, and even people - evidence of the dark power holding Nora, Selah's dear friend, in her clutches.

This is the book where everything is brought to an end and we get some answers to earlier questions. While some third books in a trilogy tend to end in a pat way, An Immortal Descent does not fall flat. In fact, it leaves us wanting more. Might there be a chance for Selah's story to continue? I don't know, but I would certainly enjoy reading more of her adventures.

I've said this about this author and I'll say it again. There is true talent in her writing. Not only do we get first class historical fiction and adventure, we are also treated to those paranormal moments that many of us crave. Throw in a romance that is not too heavy - just steamy enough to get a sense of what love and relationships were like during that era, and you have a trilogy that is the complete package of reading bliss. I can't wait to see what Kari Edgren has in store for us next!

Add to GR Button

As a goddess-born healer, Selah Kilbrid wants nothing to do with the goddess of death and disease, nor any of her human progeny. But when the two people she loves most disappear—her dearest friend Nora Goodwin and her betrothed Lord Henry Fitzalan—Selah has no choice but to leave London in pursuit of Death’s most powerful daughter.

Accompanied by a ragtag group of travelers, Selah follows a treacherous path across the Irish Sea to the long-forgotten prison of a witch who once nearly destroyed Ireland. Selah would face any danger to protect those she loves, but what if it means unleashing a greater evil on the human world? Could she risk the lives of many to save a few, or are some sacrifices too great?

Thank you for visiting and taking the time to comment. It means so much.

I apologize for word verification, but as soon as I changed the settings from only users with Google accounts, I started receiving a ton of spam comments...within one hour of changing the settings. The bots are on high alert apparently.

  1. It does sound good, I like what you say about this author's writing - just added it to my list, thanks for sharing :)
