A land plagued in darkness. One woman who carries the weight of the sun. 

In her twenty-three years of life, Shailin Srijan has never ventured past the mortal confines of her remote Scottish village. Working solely as her brother’s keeper and avoiding the small-town gossip of villagers, she’s never thought to question the mundane reality of her existence – until her brother’s condition suddenly worsens and all hope seems lost. Reeling at the thought of losing the only family she’s ever known, Shailin hastily agrees to her mother’s farfetched proposal: enter into the Immortal realm to face the greatly feared and equally mysterious Vampire King, who happens to owe the Srijans a life debt. 

The Immortal is just as enigmatic as it is ethereally alluring, and left without any other viable options, Shailin has no choice but to honor her mother’s wishes and make for the magical lands. Only once there, she finds herself thrust into a dying world of indefinite darkness and legendary monsters that have taken permanent residence in a kingdom without daylight. Even more unexpected than the realm’s unconventional nocturnal splendor is the presence of Axton, a masked vigilante also traveling to the ruler’s castle. Though Shai knows better than to trust a man with a secret, she can’t help the budding attraction that only heightens as an unlikely relationship forms between the two. 

Upon facing King Ezrium, Shailin will have to unravel a startling truth that upends the life she’s always known and decide whether she wishes to conform or pave her own way in a world of magic and mayhem. 


Rating: 4 out of 5.

Spoiler Free Review

When the life of her brother is on the line, Shailin sets off on an adventure to save him, all the way to the Isle of Immortals. Alone and defenseless except for a knife giving to her by her mother and a ring that is meant to help her, she sets off on this journey only to come across an annoying yet handsome stranger, Axton.

I gave Isle of the Immortal four stars, enjoying the dynamics between Shai and Axton. I found them adorable together and just loved that their relationship was filled with banter yet an underlying hint of admiration for each other. I think the one thing I enjoyed was how both of them grew to understand each other and also helped each other.

I think the one thing about Isle of the Immortal was how I was able to predict a few things throughout the story. I think this was simply because the author set it up so well that I ended up correctly predicting a few. things. That being said, it was still a cute fantasy novel and I had a fun time reading this, correct predictions aside. Isle of the Immortal really sets up Shai’s future and the connection she has between the Immortal and how, as she traverses through the Immortal, she is slowly discovering who she is and who her family is. That’s something I really enjoyed about this book.

I had fun reading Isle of the Immortal and would highly recommend it to anyone starting out Adult fantasy. I would categorize this as New Adult with fade to black scenes.

Thank you again to BookSirens for this ARC.
