When a routine hanging goes wrong and a murderer somehow survives the noose, the man announces he is an immortal. And not just any immortal, but Cayal, the Immortal Prince, hero of legend, thought to be only a fictional character. To most he is a figure out of the Tide Lord Tarot, the only record left on Amyrantha of the mythical beings whom fable tells created the race of half-human, half-animal Crasii, a race of slaves.
Arkady Desean is an expert on the legends of the Tide Lords so at the request of the King's Spymaster, she is sent to interrogate this would-be immortal, hoping to prove he is a spy, or at the very least, a madman.

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:
Jennifer Fallon is the award-winning author of The Hythrun Chronicles, and one of Australia's bestselling fantasy authors. She lives in Australia.
