'He's insisting he's a Tide Lord and he's begging us to try again ...to kill him, that is.' When a routine hanging goes wrong, the survivor announces he is Cayal the Immortal Prince, a Tide Lord. However, the only known record of the immortal beings of Amyrantha is the Tide Lord Tarot ...and everyone knows it is just a parlour-game, an amusement. Arkady Desean, an expert on the legends of the Crasii - a part-animal, part-human race - is sent to interrogate Cayal. But, in exposing this would-be immortal, Arkady's own web of deceit threatens to unravel. Nothing is really as it seems around the Immortal Prince. The lies seem plausible, his stories improbable ...and the truth is more than any of them bargained for.

Jennifer Fallon has long been one of the most underrated writers in fantasy. She's more George R.R. Martin than Tolkien...The Immortal Prince is a thrilling and compelling book on its own, and a perfectly executed beginning to what promises to be a great series. The society Fallon has introduced so is complex that it takes an entire novel to fully grasp, and when the book is over, it's clear that we have only seen the beginning of what it has to offer... Above all, though, The Immortal Prince is brilliantly executed drama that effortlessly alternates between romantic, witty, tragic and gripping. Well recommended for adult fantasy readers. -Rhythm and ProseAbout the Author:
