Title: Immortal Girl5
Author: Griffin Stark
Page Count: 165
I received this book from the publisher in return for an honest review. This in no way influences my opinion.
Skylar, Rachel, Caitlin, Beth and Bethany are the immortal girls. They were each picked to become immortal at the young age of 18 and which they will now stay 18 forever. They were picked to fight the evil of the world and to save humanity, when needed. From 1095AD to present day, we follow the girls as they each become immortal and face their biggest threat, Christian Gruber. He is the CEO of Forever Genetics and he wants to wipe the Earth of the Immortal Girls.
First off, this book is so short. 165 pages is not enough time to tell a fantasy story. There is no time for a buildup of the world or for us to get to know the characters and that’s where my big issue with this book is. There are 14 chapters and 5 of those chapters is each of the girls story on how they came to be immortal. Skylar, starts off by having seizures and wanders into the woods where she is able to talk to animals. Her parents end up jumping off the cliff because they think she has died. So the immortal parents, Isabelle and Alistair, find Skylar and ask her to join the Immortal Girls, and she is the first one.
I’m not entirely sure how the immortal parents decided which girls they would pick for their Immortal Girls. We do get to see two historical figures appear but it just felt odd and it didn’t go with the story. I’m just not sure if I like the clash of a fantasy fiction and reality in this way and how it was told. The dialogue between the characters was also just so uncomfortable. At one point the Immortal Girls’ house was being blown up and none of the girls seemed to care. One was off making out with someone and the others weren’t really doing anything about it.
Unfortunately, I didn’t enjoy this and I wouldn’t recommend to anyone but it is due for release on January 22, 2019 and if it sounds like something you might like then you can pre-order it from Amazon.
