Dorian Benoit is about to learn a history lesson not taught in any textbook.

The blood-soaked reign of man may be a fascinating tale of triumph and tragedy, but hardly an original one. Since the beginning, humanity has been locked in a never-ending cycle of destruction and rebirth. Wars are fought and civilizations crumble only to be reborn and start anew. Names and faces m

*I received a free ecopy of this book from the author. This has in no way influenced my review.*

The other night I was exhausted but needed to stay up a little longer, so I figured I'd find a good book to pass the time and keep me awake. I tried numerous books, but I was already half asleep, and none of them were keeping my focus. Then I decided to try this book,

This is an excellent urban fantasy novel. The author knows exactly what to write to keep you reading, so I have no trouble recommending this book to other UF lovers. The world-building is a slow revea,l so you're in the dark just like the main character Dorian as the story is building. That's being said, the intensity builds pretty fast and you get a glimpse in the first chapters how dark this story can get. Be prepared though, the author does not shy away from gore. If you like it sticky and bl ...more

I thought The Immortal Coil was entertaining. I struggle to say it was original as there are so many books with similar themes on the market but the author brings some really vivid characters to life with great back-stories which I suspect are setting the foundations for more books in a series. The one thing I would say is that there is plenty of pace and the action scenes are captured in great detail. Definitely a book where you feel compelled to keep turning the pages!

A great mixture of a post-apocalyptic world and supernatural rolled into one (my two favorite genres). I really enjoyed Dorian's character and actually liked the fact that he was gay, unlike some other reviews I've read. I think he was very relatable, his actions and choices are some I could find myself making and aren't too far fetched like they can get in similar books with a lot of action. A great mixture of devious vampires and humans! Really enjoyed this.

As an avid fan of fantasy fiction grounded in real life scenarios, I purchased this book after reading the intriguing introductory. After digesting the material over a rather quiet weekend, I can easily attest that it’s one of the better novels I’ve read this year. The author has a rather distinct voice that allows the story, through first-person, to vividly illustrate itself within my mind and demand a suspension of disbelief that is rather rare in most novels. The tale itself has a multidimens ...more

“The Immortal Coil,” by J. Armand, is a sci-fi fantasy (with action and horror elements) that follows a young man as his life is turned upside down by the arrival of otherworldly intruders. The novel opens with Dorian, an aspiring model, at a casting call. His life seems normal – the hunt for work, relationship with his family, experiencing a new place – until he sees a CDC van in his neighborhood. Strange, right? Turns out, it was just a small sign of what is to come – an encounter with terrify ...more

Fantastic modern day fantasy/fiction. The author does a wonderful job of painting the image of his characters, each is unique and has their own set of values. He doesn't waste time with meaningless descriptions of places or things that are not relevant to the story, which to me is great because he doesn't bore you with how a certain object looks. The author creates an interesting Protagonist who is constantly growing throughout the book. The flow of the book is very smooth and is not filled with ...more
