But when the two people she loves most disappear,her dearest friend Nora Goodwin and her betrothed Lord Henry Fitzalan. Selah has no choice but to leave London in pursuit of Death's most powerful daughter. Accompanied by a ragtag group of travelers, Selah follows a treacherous path across the Irish Sea to the long-forgotten prison of a witch who once nearly destroyed Ireland. Selah would face any danger to protect those she loves, but what if it means unleashing a greater evil on the human world?

my thoughts:

A truly amazing story!  I think this book, which completes the tale, is the best of all.  It brings an amazingly well written puzzle to a stunning conclusion.  This book is so full of  twists and turns, it's like riding a roller coaster, and believe me- it's as fun and thrilling as a coaster ride.   I love the manner in which Kari Edgren completed the story.  She is a masterful storyteller, who managed to thrill, intrigue and astound all at once.   

This is truly an amazing trilogy, and this book, AN IMMORTAL DESCENT, is the best of the three.  I was captivated and entranced by the tale.  

This book, this trilogy, is a rarity.  It is unique, fascinating and sensational all at once.  The characters, both good and evil, will capture your heart.  

Get all three books, take them to the beach with you this summer, but beware...you'll get a sunburn as you lose track of time while reading.  You won't want to put the books down until finished!  Now that I've finished the book, I'm going  back and starting over with the first!   

5/5 stars and a new addition to the BEYOND 5 STARS page.
