Immortal Voyage by C.G. Powell Review

Title: Immortal Voyage
Author: C.G. Powell
Genre: Fairy Tale - Fantasy
Pages: 222
Price: $2.99
Rating: 4 out 5 stars

Book Synopsis:

Before the time of the great pyramids, there was a place like none other, a city of glass and metal rising from the depths of the ocean. Shrouded in mist, the island of Hy-Brasil and its capital Atlantis lay hidden from the rest of the world by its people, a race of long lived, interstellar nomads.

What secrets would you keep to save your kingdom? On the Queen’s deathbed, the sonless King Rowe is force into a promise to allow his five daughters to marry for love. A promise he wished he had never made, and one he will have to break to save the kingdom.

The youngest of five daughters, Jael, spent most of her time at her father’s side learning to run a kingdom. Believed to be the King’s favorite, Jael is shocked when he betroths her to a longtime friend of his, Prince Sarik of Hy-Brasil. Soon she will learn that world is full of secrets and one of them is her very own birth. Will the secret that bonds her to Sarik be the ultimate downfall of a kingdom?


A fantastical novel that blends different forms of mythology into one delightful story. The adventure of Jael learning her true identity and powers is an enjoyable read. Immortal Voyage reminded me of an epic fantasy in bite-sized form. I liked that it wasn't laden with wordy descriptions while still providing a meaty story. My only qualms with this book was that some events seemed to happen too quickly and that another round of editing to catch tiny errors would be beneficial. With that said, I still highly recommend this fantasy to anyone that enjoys mythology.
