Luca is searching for his destiny. He would follow the priests as they preached and he mimicked them. Thus did he learn about closely guarded secrets of religious faith and the science of nature. He searches for his parents, who were they and why did they leave him? What causes this seemingly ageless beauty?
Would Luca become stronger for his journey? Will he find happiness or even love along the way?
This is Ms. Slatton’s debut novel, as such it is remarkable. IMMORTAL does not exactly fit the criteria of Romance Junkies, being that it is not a romance in definition. Rather it is a love of life and the pursuit of happiness and acceptance of one self. This is very powerful and thought provoking. It ignites one’s sense of duty to those around us. It also teaches us about the strength of one’s own convictions.
