It was a wonderful, glorious song, and it won the blind poet an immortal crown, the admiration of all ages.
In accumulating property for ourselves or our posterity, in founding a family or a state, or acquiring fame even, we are mortal; but in dealing with truth we are immortal, and need fear no change nor accident.
If the day and the night are such that you greet them with joy, and life emits a fragrance like flowers and sweet-scented herbs, is more elastic, more starry, more immortal--that is your success.

The love story between the brooding vampire Edward Cullen and the one human girl who means more to him than his own immortal life has a following that appeals to youth and adults alike in 39 countries.

He'd chosen to stay with her that long, and she'd broken Immortal laws to take her place as his mate.
Yes. She was hurt by an Immortal and is in a coma of sorts.
Jule snapped off the end of the arrow in his shoulder, not about to bleed to death before he'd killed the immortal.
Worse, she wasn't about to give the creature that tricked her into Hell and turned her Immortal an ounce of compassion.
But, if an Immortal or human or deity corners you, and you aren't able to summon me, you need to know how to defend yourself, Darkyn started.
She wasn't able to reconcile the creature that turned her Immortal with the man before her.
She'd experienced one night with an Immortal mate, and it was the most incredible night of her life.
The Dark One was going to turn her Immortal.
Was what she felt for Gabriel nothing more than destiny and Immortal laws she knew nothing about?
This was too similar to what she physically felt towards Gabriel to be anything other than the Immortal bond that branded Darkyn's name across her shoulders.
The dread and guilt at the pit of her stomach were countered by the confusion of knowing that she'd fallen into the grip of the Immortal laws first with Gabriel then with Darkyn.
She had to figure out what she was missing fast and how permanent it was to be an Immortal mate.
The scars the Dark One created when he turned her Immortal were more faded today than yesterday.
"You know the Immortal mating bond is what made you connect with him," Darkyn continued.
You already know the Immortal mating is what made you feel that way towards Gabriel.
She's his mate by Immortal laws, and we both know how seriously he takes his duty.
She had two markings on her back: One burgundy, the familiar Immortal mating tattoo, and the new one black, positioned directly beneath the original.
I didn't just turn you Immortal; I turned you into one of my kind.
At the reminder, she looked away, uncertain how to handle her newest foray into the weirdness that was the Immortal world.
The Immortal who posed as her only friend and surgeon for years – who also nearly killed her – stood before her.
Deidre waited nervously, uncertain what to think about the Immortal staring at her.
He motioned for the Immortal behind her to leave.
It's like Gabe being turned Immortal.
She wasn't an Immortal or deity.
The man in whose arms she lay was not only her husband by Immortal and demon laws but the Dark One who turned her into a demon.
He cannot enter Death's domain or other areas of the Immortal world without invitation.
Deidre never felt she belonged in the mortal or Immortal worlds, because she didn't.
Immortal Laws be damned.
A familiar face appeared from the words, the golden-skinned deity she nicknamed Mr. Checkmate the first time they met at the Immortal Sanctuary.
Accepting, loving, trusting someone – even if bonded – was beyond Immortal Laws to dictate.
The immortal mating script clearly read, Gabriel.
He listened, though, curious what kind of deal human-Deidre had made with the only goddess to ever outsmart the Dark One and Immortal Laws.
He circled the small, blonde woman and stopped behind her, gaze on Gabriel's name, which was written across her back, along with the Immortal mating script.
Selyn. My daughter, a hatchling born by an Immortal blood monkey.
The mating bond of the Immortals and deities and the blood bond of the demons were the two oldest bonds, unbreakable under the Immortal Code and from the laws older than the Code.
He wasn't the arrogant, ruthless Immortal she remembered.
"Immortal Law states that the mate of an immortal or deity is beyond –" "Immortal Law!" the first one laughed again.
This morning, he left a perfectly healthy woman – who looked like his mate and wore the Immortal mating tattoo – and yet was distinctly different.
It was a new one, recently made by the Ancient Immortal that Gabriel hired to help, indicating another of his dealers had defected.
"Drop her off at my place," he said, referring to the Immortal's stronghold in the French Alps.
Not many people thought differently of the first Ancient Immortal, who had led the Council with six of his sons for many years before being killed.
"You'd trust that Immortal over your mate?" she asked, anger flaring.
The demons can't access it, but an Immortal or dealer who goes through Hell can.
He walked down the line to the nearest of the five the demons had approached with offers and paused before the Immortal with icy blue eyes.
The Immortal offered a polite smile.
He used to frown at her when she acted outside the Immortal Laws, unable to appreciate that a deity charged with managing a domain often had to take steps outside the rules to protect one's underworld.
This Ancient Immortal hadn't given up his soul without a struggle.
Four demons lay dead in the living room of his house, while the Immortal had dragged himself into the garage.
Gabriel doubted Darkyn was after the Immortal because he was fighting demons.
He looked around to make sure he hadn't missed anything else that might give him a sign as to what Darkyn was doing by killing off an Ancient Immortal.
He then called a portal to visit Tamer, the Immortal making the soul compasses.
The keeper of ancient Immortal histories, Tamer was able to read scripts from the time-before-time.
"Wait," the Immortal barked.
The graceful Immortal was in the study, hands folded in his hands, as if waiting for him.
He began to think more and more that raising Andre was worth breaking the thousands of Immortal Laws it cost.
Unless you're using magic on her, there's no way any woman – Immortal, deity or human – would ever choose to stay with you.
No deity or Immortal or living human ever welcomed or accepted Death, but the souls always had.
Maybe Gabe was right; maybe this was partially her fault for breaking too many Immortal Laws at once.
The immortal mating rules from the time-before-time couldn't be broken.
Nothing – not even Darkyn – could change that, even if the Immortal mating script changed again.
The Ancient Immortal swept by her, his anger palpable.
He watched them, recalling a time he'd overseen the training of all Immortal warriors.
She'd been raped and killed by an Immortal.
Wynn doubted she knew that the Immortal who did it was his son.
The Immortal approached with caution, his movements deliberate and his voice steady and low.
The Immortal glanced up from his laptop, brow furrowing in irritation.
His mate by Immortal law!
Now, I know what I should do by Immortal law.
Gabe glanced at the Immortal.
Gabe sensed some sort of Immortal power.
She didn't offer up a living Immortal.
Awww, you're a baby Immortal mate!
Like someone who was immortal.
He sounds like an Immortal.
The knowing look on Wynn's face, however, made him realize the long dead-dead Immortal had figured things out.
Some sign he was an Immortal?
Being Immortal, that meant pretty much forever.
The strange Immortal world was so unwelcoming.
He appeared to be any other Immortal.
Wynn was an Immortal.
I happen to be an Immortal rather than a human, he said gently.
I'm an Immortal, and Gabriel has moved on after thousands of years at your feet.
I'm done with this Immortal shit.
The Immortal led him down the hallway to a familiar library.
From any other Immortal, it wouldn't have been a threat.
He heard how to bring an Immortal back from the dead-dead from past-Death but never saw it done.
Nothing yet in the Immortal world had been as easy as this bargain.
Deidre accepted his hand and let him take her into a new part of the Immortal world.
He was going to turn her Immortal.
Am I … am I an Immortal now?
I mean, I guess there could be two Gabriels in the Immortal world, she said.
Each of the four Sanctuaries sat on an island straddling the human and immortal worlds and housed an immortal treasure, such as the Oracle.
He'd always hoped Rhyn would have another chance, that Hell was a place to stash the dangerous immortal until the world was ready for him.
"Immortal Code," she reminded him.
I'm violating Immortal Code by serving you, by locking Rhyn in Hell to keep Kris from killing him.
It was his immortal powers, which Death had yanked from him when she ordered Gabriel to take him to Hell.
The death dealer was his only friend who'd stuck with him since he'd been banned to Hell by his brothers and dragged there by the immortal death dealer before him.
I can't break Immortal Code to protect her.
But an immortal's mate was off hands.
"Immortal Code," he stated.
"She's also an immortal's mate," Ully added.
She's an immortal mate.
"The woman we found is an immortal's mate," he started.
"She's an Ancient's mate, not just any immortal's mate," he explained.
She's beautiful and she's an immortal's mate.
Especially not the immortal mate meant for him.
You're immortal --can't kill you.
She wondered what it took for an immortal to look as if he'd been through Hell and back.
Not if you're already dead or immortal.
Doesn't give him a right to break the Immortal Code.
I broke the Immortal Code.
He sensed another immortal in the house but couldn't place where exactly.
I've wanted to protect her, but Immortal Code --
You broke Immortal Code what?
The immortal he sensed sat inside a large library.
Giovanni is an immortal.
As the two stared each other down, she wasn.t sure who had the better chance of winning: Gabriel, an Immortal sworn to serve Death, or Darkyn, the leader of all the demons in Hell.
Her hand went to her neck, where the name of her Ancient Immortal mate, Rhyn, had been until he broke their mating bond two days before.
By Immortal Code, Darkyn and I are obligated to accept his challenge.
The five-year-old angel, whose appearance in her life several weeks ago plunged her into the Immortal underworld, squeezed through the cracked door.
Rhyn was all she would take away from the twisted Immortal world.
You sacrificed your immortal soul for him.
I broke Immortal Code to grant your favor of not killing Rhyn.
Instead of going to see the Immortal leader, Gabriel crossed through the shadow world, squinting as he emerged into the bright mid-morning sunlight.
He.d miss the smell and sight of his homeland and yearned already to stay here rather than return to his dark corner of the Immortal underworld!
Before he gave his Immortal soul to death, he.d never noticed how sweet the air was or how the grass sang as the wind whipped through it.
I gave Death my Immortal soul.
His gaze lifted, and he recalled vividly the last time he.d seen his parents in this very spot, when they were cut down by bloodthirsty demons during the only period in Immortal history when demons attacked humans.
At barely above her height and slender, the mad scientist was very unlike the Immortal warriors that filled the castle.
Just spray any Immortal that gets too close.
In Hell, the Immortal Jade, formerly the most trusted lieutenant to the leader of the Council That Was Seven, looked around his new bedchamber with a shiver.
It has many Immortal comforts we care nothing for.
The demon closed the door—one of the Immortal comforts, for there were no doors in Hell—and left him to wonder how many men and women Sasha had in the bed before him.
As she fell asleep, she couldn.t help thinking Rhyn was the only Immortal on the Council she.d trust to keep humans safe.
I have enough problems with psycho Immortal demon jackasses.
"And … AND," Jared rushed on, holding up both hands, "he stole something from the Dark One, something that makes demons immune to Immortal powers.
It.s my fault Toby was wandering around without someone watching him, but really, Kris, who assigns a woman an Immortal kid that.s not even her own and expects her to know what to do with it?
He knows how to do things no Immortal has ever done.
Her fiancé is an Immortal.
The slender Immortal glanced up from his computer.
Gabriel was at his place in the underworld, a small cottage tucked into Death.s realm, in the Everdark forest of Immortal trees whose hissing, fanlike leaves and snake-like branches moved to catch the quiet wind.
Gabriel had always been a free man; now the human- turned Immortal was a slave.
The healers moved to the other side of the Immortal world, past Elisia and closer to Hell.
He.d spent most his life in Hell and remembered little of the Immortal world.
She went to the unoccupied fireplace and sat with her back to the wall, afraid of any Immortal who felt her draw enough to approach.
"The Immortal society is not like a human.s, Katherine," he scolded.
I, in turn, used her to climb the Immortal ladder.
He wouldn.t have been hurt if not for her, and Hannah may not have been dragged into the Immortal world if she hadn.t hit the radar of Kris.
Iliana was a relatively young Immortal who had been at his side for only a few decades, having caught his attention with her fighting skill and fierce loyalty.
By Immortal Code, you must turn him over to me.
I ask that, in the meantime, you refrain from attacking any Immortal traveling the road to the castle.
Her draw was not as consuming as Katie.s, which meant she.d have a much better chance of surviving if not every demon and Immortal was drawn to her.
I wonder how there came to be two women destined to be Immortal mates in one family.
No Immortal is innocent.
Didn.t you just get dumped by one Immortal?
Hannah saw nothing but the gilded world around her; she had no idea about the dark underside to the Immortal world.
The Immortal rubbed the injection spot with a grimace, stretched, and climbed inside the ring in the lowermost basement in the castle.
The Immortal launched himself at Rhyn, and the two sparred as the scientist watched intently.
Ully blew a whistle at last and motioned the Immortal over to check his wounds.
"Why I called you all here was to finish the discussion we started at our last meeting about the immunity of two certain humans to Immortal powers," Kris interjected.
I.ve got Toby to think about, and raising him where he.s attacked by demons and subjected to the stupidity of the Immortal world—it.s not happening.
And with Hannah here, I can.t leave the Immortal world with her still in it.
Jade had trained under Kris, the greatest of the Immortal warriors, and knew Sasha to be a lazy fighter.
He.d been responsible for enough Immortal deaths this night; he couldn.t stomach more.
The Immortal should.ve died in Hell, where he probably belonged.
Katie paced her corner of the gymnasium, where she had been herded with the rest of the Immortal mates.
She didn.t know if there was a second gym where other Immortal mates were, but Kris had said Hannah would be down.
They crossed unimpeded through the portal and onto the island Sanctuary, one of four such sites bridging the mortal and immortal worlds.
She didn.t understand much of the Immortal world, but she knew Death always won.
The snow was drenched with blood, like an Immortal snow cone.
Kris, he knew, was the best Immortal warrior ever known.
He wondered what a half-human son would be like, and his thoughts went to Gabriel, who started out human before turning Immortal.
Two Immortal mates were already eating, and she looked over the food with disinterest.
We had an Immortal wash up on our shores last night.
"Is there an Immortal named Ully here?" she asked.
The Ancient Kris probably contacted the other three, because we only have about forty Immortal refugees here now.
Katie waited until he was gone then shook her head, tired of Immortal surprises.
I.m looking for an Immortal named Ully.
That he came from the mortal world rather than the Immortal one had left a taint on him that no amount of success could get rid of.
She heard no signs of the demon pursing but trotted down the stairs, hoping to find another way into the dungeons where the Immortal warriors lived.
The tallest looked a great deal like Andre, the deceased Immortal she.d met a short time before he was killed.
He was cast out of the Immortal world fairly young.
She turned at the familiar voice, pleased and surprised to see Megan, the Immortal warrior who befriended her and showed her around when she arrived to the castle several weeks before.
I gotta keep looking for demons or any other Immortal survivors.
The Immortal on the other side of his door was too excited to wait until he entered to shout the news.
An unbound Immortal.s mate had no protection from demon or Immortal Code.
Kris had come close to breaking the Immortal rules or his own oaths to his father.
I.ll post two Immortal guards to ensure he doesn.t do anything stupid.
The Immortal nodded and trotted away to gather more.
You.re the best Immortal warrior there is.
Her Immortal guard poked his head in every corner and door and looked under the bed before he left her in peace.
Frowning, she rose to see if her Immortal guard was nodding off at his post.
Her heart slowed, and she stepped back, imagining the Immortal fighting off some demon that had stayed hidden until dark.
He grabbed one of the Immortal books, fingering the soft, leather-like cover and transparent pages.
Part demon, part Immortal, part human who.s immune to magic?
He sold his Immortal soul to Death so she wouldn.t kill Rhyn.
He was about to rise and open a portal to Hell—Kris be damned!—when an Immortal knocked and opened the door.
"A lady from the Caribbean Sanctuary has come with news," the Immortal said.
Your Immortals caught a man who claims to be an Immortal as well.
Yes, but I have to object to Immortal business being carried out in the Sanctuary.
Daniela led them to the men.s wing, where one sweaty, bloodied Immortal was standing outside of Sasha.s room while the other stood guard over Jade, who was hogtied in the middle of the small courtyard around which the men.s wing was situated.
Fury rose within him again as he took in the Immortal who had betrayed them and taken Katie.
He dragged the Immortal over the grass and concrete into the vacant room beside Sasha.s.
Then I must warn you. If I find either of you, I am obligated by rules much older than the Immortal Code to do what I must.
Oh, because you Immortal jackasses know it all, right?
You're the only Immortal I've met worth saving.
She wanted Kris dead in that moment, even if the arrogant Immortal was her sister's husband.
Lost in the food fantasy, she didn't see Gabriel disappear into the jungle. Katie blinked and looked around, still uneasy with the snakelike branches that moved of their own volition overhead. She didn't know what kind of creatures followed or what other critters would live in the Immortal jungle, but she wanted nothing to do with such a weird place.
She's an Immortal or demon or what?
"At first, I think it was knowing he was a black sheep like me. My sister always treated me like I was a blight on the family name. She tried to help me in her own way, I guess, which was better than what Rhyn's brothers did to him. I wanted to believe he could make it in the Immortal world, because if he could, I could, too," she started.
She had no idea how to be a single mother in the real world, let alone in a world as unforgiving as the Immortal one. She'd proven she couldn't raise Toby without a bottle of vodka permanently glued to her hand. Rhyn had been exiled for his mixed origins, and she'd never been especially welcomed by anyone but Gabe and Toby. If something happened to Rhyn or if she couldn't leave here … Panicking made her already surging hormones worse. She felt nauseous.
She's bound by rules older than she is. She may have interfered somewhere she shouldn't have. There are Immortal Codes too old for even me to know and some that only the deities know. I think she violated one of those.
The Immortal side of him is weak. He'll do whatever it takes to get his mate back, and I intend to plant the idea in his head.
You will kill any demon or Immortal in your path.
The Immortal cowering in the corner gasped. Darkyn circled the super demon in satisfaction.
"And now, Immortal, we wait," Darkyn said to the mad scientist.
"Probably stuck in the Immortal underworld," Toby said with a shrug.
She sped up, and so did the creature. Katie stopped fast. The shadow Immortal stopped with her.
Shaking his head, he continued to his destination. He emerged through a portal leading to Death's corner of the underworld. It was a place no demon or Immortal was allowed to go, and he'd thought it impossible to get there, until he'd tried. He'd visited Gabriel once before.
While not large, the Immortal underworld was separated by several different domains, two of which – Hell and Death's domain - were contained within shields no one could enter. At least, no normal Immortal or demon could enter. As a creature of both worlds, Rhyn could enter Hell, and he'd found by visiting Gabe that he was able to enter Death's domain, too.
Frowning, Rhyn pulled a dagger from the wall and tucked it into his belt. He'd never tried tracking anyone through the Immortal underworld before; if Gabriel didn't want to be found, Rhyn wasn't going to find him in the death-dealer's backyard. Sweat dripped down his face in the still air of the cottage.
"Rhyn," the Immortal with Asian features snapped up at Rhyn's appearance.
Toby frowned, worried as much about his human charge as his Immortal friends.
Toby was silent, knowing a normal Immortal could never understand. He didn't yet have the full power of a real guardian angel, but he should've been able to do more than … nothing. Angels were placed with human mothers so they could understand the creatures they were meant to take care of. Human mothers raised them as their own, yet none of his human mothers had gone to the extent Katie did to try to protect him.
"Hello, my Immortal Twinkies," Jared said, his slender form pausing in the hallway between them.
"I'm not a normal Immortal," Toby cried.
There's another Immortal down here?
"Not Immortal, human," Jared answered.
Stuck in the Immortal underworld.
"A human in the Immortal world doesn't stand much of a chance," Ully said.
It's part of the Immortal Code.
How many rules are in the Immortal Code?
Do demons have Immortal Codes?
"So … is it possible for a dead-dead Immortal to come back to life?" she asked.
I know the Immortal world better than you, mortal.
He'd have a way of keeping my mind off of things. I think the demon side of him makes him a better Immortal than people like Kris.
She won't need to break the Immortal Codes and return your mate to you, because in the next three days, you'll be out of her hair.
Death can only contain your Immortal powers in her domain, just like I can only contain your demon powers in Hell.
He thought of Hell, and the portal glowed blacker than night. He thought of Kris, and the portal for the Sanctuary lit up. He thought of the Immortal underworld – Death's domain – and the portal turned gray.
"It's against Immortal Code," he said.
I heard the Immortal underworld is an awful place. What if Death decides to keep you or Rhyn drops you in Hell forever?
I don't know why I am the way I am. I don't even know much of the Immortal Code, just the few key parts Andre used to lecture me about. Loyalty to my brothers, my mate, the Immortals, humanity. Respect for Death and her domain. Other variations of those.
I was born, wandered the Immortal world for the first few years.
Because I should trust a creepy ghost that looks like someone I once knew over the Immortal who rescued me from Death.
Andre didn't bother to disappear, as if no longer worried the Immortal might see him. The death-dealer looked lost for a moment then rose and strapped on his weapons.
She sighed, wondering why she was paying attention to a dead-dead Immortal in the first place.
Smells like a human, acts like an Immortal.
"I don't know it's name. It was with Lunchmeat at the Immortal stronghold," Jared said, using his nickname for Katie.
"Darkyn incorporated them into his army. He sent most to the Immortal stronghold," Jared said.
"It would break every Immortal Code – some older than Death – if she returned a mortal to the mortal world," Gabe said.
"I'm saying, the mate of an Ancient or any Immortal is preordained. No one can break that bond, not even Death," Toby answered.
Kris glanced up, expecting Kiki to enter his tent; however, it was one of his Immortal messengers who approached.
She was a risk for revealing the Immortal society to the human world or alerting the demons as to where Kris's strongholds were.
Kris's memories stirred stronger than he liked. He remembered Lilith, a beautiful Immortal whose laugh had filled him with happiness. Their love had been intense and brief, lasting less than a human year in total. One day, she was just … gone.
As far as he knew, no Immortal voluntarily came to Death's underworld.
"Ow," Toby muttered. Ully's fingers dug into his shoulder. The Immortal didn't look as if he had that amount of strength in him.
Ully was dropped to the ground at Toby's command. He hurried back to the Immortal, worried he'd be hurt. Ully was unconscious.
The branches around him darted around then fell still, as if watching. Toby knelt beside Ully and grunted as he rolled the Immortal onto his back. Disappointed to have their journey paused already, he looked around then back at Ully.
She started to saw at them with the knife. The wood was thick and wet. She shifted closer, gasping when the root healed the cuts she'd just made. Furious at the latest trick from the Immortal underworld, Katie sawed furiously at the root, until her arm ached. She'd barely made a dent when she switched arms.
She handed the pale woman a food and water cube and popped two of her own. Standing, she waded into the brush where she'd thrown the knife. It glinted in the morning light. Katie swiped it, glad the trees didn't have a taste for metal as well as Immortal sustenance.
As Darkyn had said, the underworld tempered his Immortal magic, but Rhyn felt the demon power broiling behind the constraints, seeking a way out of him. He was sticking to his plan, though he no longer had time to find Death.
He knelt on the ground and closed his eyes, seeking out the writhing darkness of his demon side. If the demons had the power to transform and fly, he could access his demon powers, too, even if the Immortal side of him was bound by Death's underworld. "Berries," Toby commanded the tree before him.
He'd lost them all. Lilith, Jade, Hannah. Even Andre. He'd not only failed every Immortal that ever lived, he'd failed the only people he'd ever cared for. He lay on the ground, gasping as he tangled his fingers in Hannah's hair.
Kris looked at him, anger building. The muscular half-demon was bleeding from a wound in his chest. His dark eyes glowed like a demon's, though his face was still that of an Immortal.
She's breaking Immortal Code to let you go. We have to leave, before she changes her mind.
I do my best, but I'm as flawed as any Immortal. I just hope our brothers see that I'm trying.
The Immortal was alive, but barely.
"I get to choose who I take, and I don't want yours. Maybe the Immortal who issued the contract for two souls should step up," Death said.
Toby looked at the unconscious Immortal twice his size and back up at Rhyn.
"The immunity blood worked. We can have the Immortal scientist make us more. We could slide right into the – " "Ully is dead-dead, as you will be by the time the day is over," Darkyn said.
His closest friend and advisor, the Original Immortal Jule, waited for him atop a horse.
Darian mounted his horse again, joining Jule as the Original Immortal led his horse down the beach.
It rose from the beach to the sky and harbored the source of the immortals' power in the immortal world.
The Original Immortal was visibly disturbed.
Darian guided the horse through marble streets marked by statues of his forefathers and beyond the city into the wood running along a stream that ran through the immortal countryside.
"If I were the only ruler of the immortal world, he might be happy," she said.
My daughter is the ruler of the immortal world, her father said.
It was blood red, casting a shadow the color of blood over the immortal world.
Day of the Schism Immortal World Peasant quarter of the imperial city
There was no way to move up or improve life in the immortal world, but Jenn heard tales of the mortal world.
It spit out someone else from the immortal world then slowed to a near stop.
There was nothing she could do for Talia, nothing that remained of the immortal world.
She didn't want to say it, but the bloodied immortal didn't look like he'd wake up for quite a while, especially if there was no Healer among the survivors.
He peered at the Original Immortal curiously then looked up at her.
There was no immortal world to go back to now.
In less than two weeks, he'd aged, transforming from the lost youth she'd tried to take care of into a young immortal exploring his dark powers.
If the Others wanted to find a way to keep the Grey God from assuming his role as the Gatekeeper between immortal and mortal worlds, they'd likely find her a good target.
One of five Original Beings, he'd landed on earth when the Originals escaped from their immortal exile.
There are now two places on earth where we can enter from the immortal world.
Go back to the immortal world.
Something as small as a piece of hair or a tooth—anything that the soul of the dead immortal might still cling to.
The stars didn't shine quite so bright in the immortal world, and the sky didn't seem as endless.
If he didn't find what he sought, there might not be an immortal world anymore.
The guardsman hesitated, not sensing the soul of the dead immortal despite the blood.
The colors and sensations of the immortal world were richer on the senses, but the mortal world seemed raw, untamed.
Traveling to the portal between worlds, the guardsman took one last look around then dropped through the gateway to the immortal world.
While she'd been one of the original Guardians to escape the immortal world with Damian, she'd also been at the bottom of the totem pole, once the Guardians in the mortal world rallied around their White God.
Her mate, the White God Damian, sat with his adopted brothers, the assassin Dusty and the Original Immortal Jule.
The tattooed immortal with cocoa skin sat forward, his magic vibrating in the air around him.
Before she talked herself out of it, she Traveled back to the Others' portal into the immortal world.
Jenn grabbed more rocks and returned to the immortal world.
She marveled at the immortal world.
She'd forgotten how hard the adjustment had been from immortal to mortal world.
Unlike the mortal world, everything in the immortal world was alive, even the stones making up the buildings.
Each obelisk listed the members of an immortal household and their offspring.
Servants—which her father and mother had been—were listed on the House of their immortal lords.
This immortal House had been somewhat lowly on the immortal totem pole, evidenced by the fact it was a third the height of most of the others.
She'd given it to Talia before she left then reclaimed it after the first wave of the Schism ripped through the Immortal world.
The loss of the magic from the immortal world made her feel slow and heavy as she took her first few steps.
Though her trip had taken more than two hours on the immortal side, less than an hour had passed in the mortal world.
The vulnerability she felt in the immortal world lingered.
You must have some good memory of the immortal world.
Your Guardian crossed into the immortal world.
"Everything in the immortal realm is ours," the Other spat.
"She did nothing to you, and you're insisting on taking her to the immortal world forever," Darian mused.
She hesitated then reached into her shirt and pulled free the necklace marking her House in the immortal world.
Jenn's magic and senses came alive like they did in the immortal world.
Like … I went to my family's obelisk in the immortal world.
Anyway, I broke some immortal law by going back.
Jenn, how did you get to the immortal world?
You didn't go back to the immortal world?
He Traveled to the Others' portal to the immortal world.
The heat of the desert disappeared as he dropped through the portal to the immortal world.
He'd remembered the immortal world with fondness, for it was the only place and time he'd ever been happy.
She'd never look upon the obelisk or her immortal home again.
