Review for Immortal Mine by Cindy C. Bennett

Immortal Mine 
Niahm (pronounced Neeve) Parker is thoroughly content with her life in the small town of Goshen. Her parents, who travel frequently for their work, have raised a headstrong, independent teen. While her peers can hardly wait for the opportunity to leave, Niahm plans to stay forever.

When Shane Coleman and his nephew Sam move into town, it's the biggest event to happen in as long as anyone can remember. It’s quite remarkable for anyone to move into Goshen rather than out, but when it’s discovered that Sam is 17, it requires some serious burning of the phone lines. All the teen girls are thrilled to have a new hottie in town—all except Niahm. Sam Coleman represents a threat to her perfect way of life.

Sam is drawn to Niahm against his will. He'd prefer to not be bound to this angry, stubborn, unlikeable girl. Unfortunately, he has no choice. However, Sam didn't plan on falling for Niahm. For Immortals, love is not only forbidden, but dangerous for her. He finds himself in a fight not only for Niahm's heart, but to protect her from being harmed by those who seek to destroy Sam and those like him.

Niahm finds herself attracted to the tall, copper-headed boy, who becomes her friend and then her support when tragedy strikes. Soon, she begins to realize that there may be more to Sam than she ever suspected... much more. But what he truly is, she can't begin to imagine.

Ok, if I like a book I’ll rave about it a bit and tell you all the things I liked blah blah blah.  However, if I love a book I will gush.  Well watch out folks because I’m about to get my gush on!  This book was stupendous!  I have to say Cindy C. Bennett is one of my 3 favorite indie authors.  When I get word that she’s written something new I get giddy.  Her books Geek Girl and Heart on a Chain are two books I recommend on a regular basis. 
Immortal Mine is her first venture in the paranormal genre and she came through like a champ!  Cindy writes these characters that just grip you by the heart.   They are so pragmatic.  Niahm is no different.  Her reactions to things that happen to her are some of the same I think I would have in her situation.  Then there’s Sam.  Every girl should have a Sam.  Sam is the kind of guy that goes above & beyond for someone he cares about.  I appreciate that they don’t just fall in love the first second they see each other.  Cindy allows their relationship to grow and develop.  There are great supporting characters as well.  If you’ve read Geek Girl you’ll find a reference to the main characters in this book that I thought was fun.  The pace of the book was perfect for me.  She was able to move things along without getting wordy or drawing out any particular event.  Oh, and the Gaelic was such a neat touch.  I love all things Irish so that was so interesting to me.  I am going to have a difficult time waiting for the next book.

  1. Jeanette - Thank you so much (once again!). You are so incredibly good to me and my books. :o)

    I'm glad you liked the Gaelic. I worried that it might be too distracting, but like you I love all things Irish (and Scottish as well) so I decided to add it anyway.

  2. Sounds like a good book. When a reviewer gushes over a book like this it really makes me want to give it a try. I'll keep this one on my TBR list at goodreads.


Are you leaving me a comment?! Oh how I love it when you do that!!
