Book Review: My Soul Immortal (Fated Eternals #1) by Jen Printy

My Soul Immortal (Fated Eternals #1) 
by Jen Printy
February 22, 2014
312 pages
Genre: Urban Fantasy/ Paranormal Romance
An endless love, for an endless price.

Jack’s immortality is exposed when he prevents a liquor store heist, forcing him to flee to protect his secret—a secret not even he understands. But when he meets Leah Winters—a mirror image of his decades-lost love, Lydia—his very soul is laid bare. He begins to question his sanity. Is she real, and if so, what does that mean for Jack and his secret?

Jack’s not the only mystery man in town. A stranger named Artagan hints at knowledge Jack is desperate to possess. But can he trust Artagan, or does the dark newcomer harbor deadly secrets of his own?

As Jack’s bond with Leah grows, so does the danger to her life. Jack must discover just how much he is willing to risk in order to save the woman he already lost once.

My Soul Immortal tells the story of Jack, a mysterious immortal who has lived for over 100 years. Jack doesn’t fully understand his gift of immortality and has spent a good chunk of his long existence resenting it. For decades, Jack has been haunted by the memory of his lost love Lydia. To conceal his gift, Jack must maintain a low profile and remain on the move. In his newest identity as a bookstore clerk in Portland Maine, Jack meets Leah, an exact likeness of his lost Lydia.

My Soul Immortal is well-written and rather sweet. Jack and Leah are likable characters. The story has a strong sense of realism despite its paranormal elements. I preferred the second half of the book as Printy established an interesting premise for future installments. I found the book to have a young adult vibe; much too vanilla for my taste. Leah is young and lacks the grit, depth, and maturity I prefer in a female lead character.

The premise of this book is intriguing and the series has potential. I particularly enjoyed the complexity and mystery of Artagan and would be interested in seeing this character further integrated into future installments.
