The Jack (The Immortal Series Book Two) by M.K. Harkins – Review by Francis O’Sullivan

The Jack (The Immortal Series Book Two)The Jack by M.K. Harkins
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Jack is the exciting second book in M.K. Harkins’ The Immortals series. It picks up a couple of years after the first book, The Reader, ended with the extinction of (nearly) all of the Jacks – a race of immortals who bring terror and death to the world.
I’m glad there was a chance for Archer to develop more as a character, following the events of the previous book. It was also great to get to know Sadie – I really liked her as a character (and Eve!). The way she’d struggled over the years with her immortality and the mortality of everyone around her reminded me of other characters, such as The Doctor in Doctor Who and Tom Hazard in How To Stop Time. Many of the other characters from The Reader had a role, and it was good to see how they’d grown in the time between the books and look at them from different perspectives.
I love the fantasy world M.K. Harkins has created! I’m a big fan of urban fantasy and the meeting of the real world and something other. There’s also a bit of a sci-fi feel to it as the various immortal races employ advanced science and technology.
For me, this is a five star book. I’m really enjoying this series. It’s very original, intriguing and well developed. I’d recommend it to sci-fi and fantasy fans, especially if you like stories about immortal characters.
