A young child is saved from a burning building by the Wandering Jew ( who just happens to be passing by) and he and his family's fate is then linked with the famous immortal.
Especially after the Jew's daughter falls in love with the man the child grows up to be.

A great character in a really uneven book. So many amazing ideas come together to create a good, but not great book.

Feval's version of the Wandering Jew is a fascinating character, worthy of a series. Better than so many of the other, better known, melancholy immortals in fiction.
So many great story elements are introduced and then barely touched upon and then the story is over.
Fascinating and frustrating.

Very dry and the old school writing style takes some getting used to, but the great fantasy ideas Feval puts forth will keep your attention.

This book should be better known and it should have been a series.
