"IMMORTAL by Valjeanne Jeffers starts in the year 3075 and Tundra has been at peace for 400 years. Gone is the racism, poverty and war. Where if any weapons are brought into Tundra it is the one thing punishable by death. Tundra, a place where you are only known by your first name and number.
A young Indigo woman, named Karla, works as a healer, at a place called CLEAN. Where people go to get "clean" from being addicted to the drugs Rush and Placid (the only drugs that are legal.) Karla is tormented with erotic, yet terrifying dreams that she is immortal. The dreams are so real, that she is sure she sees a creature in her bedroom. When she recognizes him from her dreams...he disappears. Unfortunately, she knows without a shadow of doubt that this creature means her no good.
Later she meets an aspiring artist, Karla knows it is destiny that their paths have crossed because this is the man she has been dreaming about, for as long as she can remember. He is her warrior and protector from her dreams.
Joseph, a young farmer from Sorres, is haunted by dreams of a sorceress. These dreams embark him on a journey to find her and his destiny. Where together they will journey to the edge of time, to try and save Tundra from the evil that seeks to destroy it.
IMMORTAL by Valjeanne Jeffers is an enchanting tale of magic, werewolves and humans that turn into creatures of the night. The story was mesmerizing to say the least. I look forward to reading the next installment in this series. Although a quick read, the story moves fast and leaves you wanting more. The writings of Ms. Jeffers remind me a lot of the writer Clive Barker. So if you are into stories that are magical that tell tales of the mythical, then this is your book."

She was in the basement again. It was pitch black, the only illumination a glowing quarter moon etched into the floor. A burst of light split the darkness, and she maoned low in her throat.
Please, I don't wanna see anymore...I don't want to look.
Yet her feet moved of their own volition, inching toward the mark...and the twisted bundle now lying in its center. A man was curled upon the stone. He wasn't breathing, and his limbs were tiny and withered. But she knew he wasn't dead.
He wasn't human...
IMMORTAL 2nd edition
Just finished reading Immortal, by Valjeanne Jeffers.
Thousands of years in the future, in the great land of Tundra - after the Time of Legend, we find Karla. A beautiful indigo woman, Karla must navigate through an inner and outer world filled with magic, past lives, and a mysterious and powerful being who seems to know Karla better than she knows herself.
Immortal is an amazing story that flows like water. It’s a speculative-cool piece that takes the reader on a trip that is horror, cyber-punk, and fantasy, all rolled in one. Valjeanne Jeffers is one of those authors who can make words drip color. I had a ball exploring her world. I was captivated by the surreal dreamscapes Karla and Joseph ebbed in and out of, and the utilitarian society in which they spent their waking lives.
Immortal is one of the most unique blends I have had the pleasure of reading in some time. Future collides with past. Magic, with science. This is one cool ride, and I am compelled to recommend this piece.

Ms. Jeffers has created an oddly vivid and not so far-fetched neo-Earth in Immortal. Quick paced and well-crafted, I felt a connection with her protagonists and a distilled hatred for her antagonists. The characters' backstories fit together like the pieces of an intricate puzzle. From the absence of war to the presence of the obscenely paranormal, the frightening and beautiful; dangerous and air-tight; Immortal is filled with yins and yangs that somehow culminate into a satisfying literary balance. A wonderful read from beginning to end.
