Early Reviewers e-book copy received from librarything.com

The Immortals War is a magic and mythology is real fantasy novel set in Taiwan. The writing is readable, although not anything special, and the characters feel a little wooden. It is a refreshing change to have a book about non Western mythology and magic. The events in the story move along pretty well, and the plot is fairly engaging, but at the end, it felt like there really was not much there. It was not that I had to force myself to

It was a little choppy in parts, and I think it possibly tried a little too hard to be authentic, but it was a pretty good read.

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. I really enjoyed reading this magical story of a courier who eventually becomes master of his own fate!

A story offering a fantasy milieu founded in Chinese legendry. Our protagonist had to deal with deliveries made in the midst of a war between supernaturals.... and his relationship with a motorcycle which is sometimes a horse.... but he is drawn into matters of a magical destiny... and what it is like for the supernaturals who have to live in the midst of humans. More in this setting would be welcome.

I received a copy of this ebook from LT Early Reviewers and I am so happy that I did, because I loved it!!

It started off with a bang...a motorcyclist being chased by a huge bird of Asian mythology called a Huang, and later her, and her mate Feng, as he tries to deliver a message to Zhang Gua Loa, one of the Eight Immortals in the Taoist pantheon of Chinese mythology. Tong Yi. the motorcyclist, works for a message delivery service in Taiwan, but it's not just a regular delivery service... Huli T

I tried, I really really did...BUT this book was such an absolute bore that I had to put it down 4 or 5 times and make deals with myself that if I got another 10% read I could return to another book...ANY other book. The MC is SO unrealateable and repeats himself to the point of distraction. I could not connect with the main character no matter how I hoped and prayed. The synopsis sounded so promising. I was even toying with

First let me say I LOVE the idea of this book. I love the concept. The author definitely has a way with words and her descriptiveness is really well done. For that I would give this book 2.5 stars. But that's about it. The story starts out promising with a motorcylce versus a mysterious winged bird chase scene. But after the delivery man makes it to the first immortal, the author takes forever to develop the story. It then reads more like a diary of the main character's daily activities. I mean ...more
