Who doesn't want to live forever?
The Immortality Curse, by Greig Beck, isn't like his other stories. This one reads differently, the adventure is different and the action behind it all is different. The Immortality Curse takes place, possibly in a different Matt Kearns universe, since there weren't any flying, diseased creatures or giant spiders and such. This time, what hits Matt is bigger than ever, and closer to home.
Written like a chapter from the Indiana Jones series, The Immortality Curse sends our beloved, and rather sexy, Professor in search for the ever elusive Fountain of Youth. Or something close to it.
When a young man is recorded deflating into practically a bag of bones, in real time, it sends a special group of people into a tizzy. Yet one woman, an elderly collector of mythological artifacts, knows the man. How had he not aged? This is the question that sends a group of unlikely adversaries up against things unimagined and possible insanity!
I believe I enjoyed The Immortality Curse because it didn't feel like the other books. Yes, there were things that were creepy and nightmarish, but there was something more. Something deeper that attracted me and held my interest. There's a great deal more insight, as well. The characters had to overcome the obstacles of the real world just as much as a horrific one. And in the end, you may or may not receive the ending you were looking for. This is not a bad thing, by the way.
I also liked that one of my favorite characters returned, from another tale. She made the story so much better, because she's so badass! (sorry!) I think that if you're a Beck fan, you will find appreciation for this one. It's not like the other books, but who wants the same thing all the time, eh?
I'm off to the next read. Cheers!
