Immortal Voyage, by C.G. Powell, was such a captivating page-turner that I didn’t sleep until I was finished with the entire book! This fascinating story includes royalty, romance, and battle, all with twists and turns that will keep you glued to the book through the very end.
During the birth of their fifth daughter, King Rowe promised his dying Queen that he would allow his daughters to marry for love, even though he had no son to take over the Kingdom. He was forced to break that promise when he felt his time coming to an end and to save the Kingdom. Jael, the King’s fifth daughter, showed the most promise and interest in ruling Eirland and his current son-in-laws proved to be incompetent for the job. This led the King to behtroth Jael to his longtime friend Prince Sarik of Hy-Brasil.
Hy-Brasil was a very mysterious place that not just anyone could visit. It remained hidden from sight to the rest of the world and was the home of many immortal beings. When Jael makes the long journey to Hy-Brasil and the capitol city of Atlantis to meet her Prince, she also learns some very interesting secrets about her own birth.
I loved the character family dynamic in this book. You get to learn a little bit about each sister and their own lives, while seeing how they are intermingled into the larger picture. The sisters each have their own personality that really comes through during their actions in the book. I also enjoyed reading about the settings where the story takes place. Eirland seems to be a very primitive Kingdom, while Atlantis is very modern and has great technological advances. It is very interesting to be able to experience Jael’s view of both places in this book.
One of my favorite characters in the book is Tam, which surprised me. Normally I pick the strongest female as my favorite character in books, but I think I fell in love with Tam early on in the story. He is a strong leader that has amazing dedication and respect. Plus, I picture him as being very nice looking.
