“I thought I’d miss the world.” --Adam the immortal
Adam is on vacation in an island paradise, with nothing to do and plenty of time to do nothing.
It’s exactly what he needed: beautiful weather, beautiful girlfriend, plenty of books to read, and alcohol to drink. Most importantly, either nobody on the island knows who he is, or, nobody cares.
“This probably sounds boring, and maybe it is. It’s possible I have no compass to help determine boring, or maybe I have a different threshold than most people. From my perspective, though, the vast majority of human history has been boring, by which I mean nothing happened, and sure, that can be dull. On the other hand, nothing happening includes nobody trying to kill anybody, and specifically, nobody trying to kill me. That’s the kind of boring a guy can get behind.” --Adam the immortal
Nothing last forever, though, and that includes the opportunity to do nothing. One day, unwelcome visitors arrive in secret, with impossible knowledge of impossible events, and then the impossible things arrive: a new species.
It’s all impossible, especially to the immortal man who thought he’d seen all there was to see in the world. Now, Adam is going to have to figure out what’s happening and make things right before he and everyone he loves ends up dead in the hot sun of this island paradise.
Immortal and the Island of Impossible Things is the fourth book in Gene Doucette’s acclaimed Immortal novel series, and the start of a new adventure for Adam the immortal man! Catch up on all that’s come before, with Immortal, Hellenic Immortal, Immortal at the Edge of the World, and the novellas in The Immortal Chronicles and Immortal Stories: Eve.
Other books by Gene Doucette include the sci-fi thriller Fixer, and the bestseller The Spaceship Next Door.

“…if your next question is, what could that possibly make me, if I’m not an angel or a god? The answer is the same as what I said before: many have considered me a god, and probably a few have thought of me as an angel. I’m neither, if those positions are defined by any kind of supernormal magical power. True magic of that kind doesn’t exist, but I can do things that may appear magic to someone slightly more tethered to their mortality. I’m a woman, and that’s all. What may make me different from the next woman is that it’s possible I’m the very first one…"
For most of humankind, the woman calling herself Eve has been nothing more than a shock of red hair glimpsed out of the corner of the eye, in a crowd, or from a great distance. She’s been worshipped, feared, and hunted, but perhaps never understood. Now, she’s trying to reconnect with the world, and finding that more challenging than anticipated.
Can the oldest human on Earth rediscover her own humanity? Or will she decide the world isn’t worth it?
But when FBI agent Maggie Trent asks for help on a case, Corrigan’s tenuous grip on reality is shaken. She’s got some dead college students whose deaths aren’t actually accidental, but the only person who can prove that is Corrigan. He doesn’t want to, because doing so would mean facing something he’s been repressing for years.
He was twelve when he learned that monsters are real. They live in the future, and they don’t want to be seen. Now, Corrigan has to stop one of them.
Unfortunately, Corrigan Bain is also going insane.
Fixer is a non-stop sci-fi horror thriller, from the best-selling author of the Immortal series and The Spaceship Next Door.
