Synopsis from Goodreads:

An endless love, for an endless price.

Jack’s immortality is exposed when he prevents a liquor store heist, forcing him to flee to protect his secret—a secret not even he understands. But when he meets Leah Winters—a mirror image of his decades-lost love, Lydia—his very soul is laid bare. He begins to question his sanity. Is she real, and if so, what does that mean for Jack and his secret?

Jack’s not the only mystery man in town. A stranger named Artagan hints at knowledge Jack is desperate to possess. But can he trust Artagan, or does the dark newcomer harbor deadly secrets of his own?

As Jack’s bond with Leah grows, so does the danger to her life. Jack must discover just how much he is willing to risk in order to save the woman he already lost once.

My Review:

I thoroughly enjoy Printy’s writing style. It’s light and approachable with just a hint of mystery and darkness. She presents a very well thought out yet enlightened and intriguing view of ‘Death’ as an individual. Mythology and children’s rhymes work their way through this tale, really making you think and wonder. I did find that the story started to drag a few times when we were caught up in the mythology behind it, but that was quickly remedied.

You don’t really get to know much about either of the main characters’ pasts, other than the fact that Jack had a very long one. It made it quite hard to get to know them well. They are quite well developed in the present, which means that you can fairly easily follow along with their current lives. I found the supporting cast to be quite unique and just as well developed as the main characters. They were a varied lot that captured my attention.

As a whole this was a fairly enjoyable read. Printy captured my attention and imagination with her unique and well thought out storyline.
