Publisher's Summary

The latest thrilling adventure from best-selling author Greig Beck!

What would you give for eternal life?

An impossibly old man, a family gruesomely murdered and a woman whose collection of mythological artefacts defies belief: Professor Matt Kearns knows they are connected. These ancient clues bring Matt out of his self-imposed solitude to seek the fabled Fountain of Youth.

This brings on a perilous odyssey across deserts and oceans and into the heart of a mountain, and Matt must overcome horrifying adversaries and creatures of legend and also unravel a 5,000-year-old mystery that will tear at his very sanity. In a hidden place, Matt finds that some gifts have a terrible price - and some are not gifts at all but curses that can last for an eternity.

    "Great story - great characters"

    loved this book - the sort was gripping, the pacevwas perfect and the characters were believable. It is hard to pick out one 'best part' or highlight as I think that this is The complete package. The narrator is perfect for this type of action book. The combination of Beck and Mangen is electric. the worst thing about this book was the final line, only because it means a long wait for the next Greig Beck book.

    "Imaginative adventure"

    Greig Beck is one of my favorite thriller authors, so I looked forward to my first audio book from him. The Immortality Curse is a ton of fun as a diverse group seeks out the ancient source of eternal life, taking them on a harrowing adventure where they encounter a conniving old woman, an enormous monster, and creepy critters. The ending was especially good, I thought, and I could see the potential for sequels coming off this one. I can't say too much without giving it all away! My only complaint was the narrator wasn't that great. However, if you love a grand adventure in the vein of Indiana Jones, you'll enjoy Greig Beck's books.

    "Not enough meat!"

    I have listened to all of Beck's book at this point and this one does not match up. There is too much minor action and not enough of the meaty stuff that he had in his other books. I have loved his stuff and would suggest you go to his other books instead. On the other hand Mangan's performance is as good as ever.

    "I'm not sure I will recommend this book because..."

    ...As a writer I understand the need for poetic license and from time to time I use it quite liberally. But when it comes to the Bible I find it best not to rewrite the Author (2Tim 3:16). Not only will you insult people on a very personal level and get it wrong (like making the Nephilim the good guys (Gen 6:1-8), you run the risk of contaminating what's in the Bible with your own ideology. And for the record, Noah would have NEVER acted that way. Probably one of the best compliments The Creator ever gave a human went to Noah in Gen. 6:22. We should all be so inspired. That being said I applaud the author for reminding anyone interested in learning about who Noah was to find out. Reading the Bible is something we could all stand to do more of especially if we are genuinely interested in learning about God's plans for us. (Revelations 21:3,4)
