When the lethal Queen of the Sirens emerges from the secret realm of Sirenibus, Corvus is tempted by an irresistible deal at a dangerous price. Caught up in a conspiracy and a war between light and darkness, can he and Saphyr save the people from a terrible destiny and restore the Empire to its former glory?

This book screams adventure from the fat-go! The action starts right away. It’s got everything you want in a fantasy story! A heroes journey, Emperors and Heirs, daggers, bad ass fighting, true love, sirens and magic, and more!! This book has everything. It’ll make you laugh, cry, speed your heart up, etc. The story itself is truly wonderful! The only thing I’d say I did not like about the writing was some of the word choice, I guess you could say. Sometimes it felt like the big, fancy words used were plucked right out of a thesaurus, when the average, smaller word for it would have gotten the point across just as well. I get they’re supposed to be royal and therefore talk more precise, but it just causes a lot of fumble on the reader when there are three or four huge words back to back! Other than that, the story is very easy to keep up with. The characters are like able, brave, and kick-ass. The world building is top-tier. And while all of this is done in a shorter book, it definitely doesn’t feel that way! Love it!
Such a good YA, fast-paced, good romance book! Will definitely recommend it to friends and family! Totally one to read! The cover is also stunning.
I really appreciate how the first-person POV narrative was handled. The characters were quite intriguing and I'm quite happy for the male lead. However, the female lead was a little bland in comparison and what the story missed was electricity, tension, and epicness. It was a nice fantasy setting and a touching love story, but it needed more spark.
4.5/5 stars I received this earc from NetGalley and finished it in less than 48 hours! This was such a quick read and I throughly enjoyed it! It has everything you could want from a fantasy book: action, sirens, fairies, selkies, mystery! There is also great world building and was so fast paced! I loved the characters that Vieira created! I really hope there is another book! I loved this world! This book comes out 12/2021! Read it!!
I really enjoyed this and I'm so glad I was given the opportunity to read this. I enjoyed the setting and how the everything was described and I really felt emerged in the book, I felt myself sinking into the book every time I read it. From the very first chapter there was action and I loved that and found myself reading for a lot longer than planned because I couldn't put the book down. I'm giving this a 5/5 because this is exactly the type of book I would want to read, it had everything I liked, I enjoyed the pace and the characters and it made me want to keep reading which is exactly what I want in a book.
Four Stars I really enjoyed this book, the plot was very interesting to me and kept me interested throughout the book. The story follows Corvus an heir to one of the Noble Houses. A coup he is planning with the general goes wrong and he has to leave the kingdom with his friend and the Princess Saphry. Corvus was an interesting character, but overall I felt like he could’ve used a little more depth to him. Kanis however was my favorite character!
This book was captivating and faced paced. There was never a moment while reading when I wasn't on the edge of my seat wanting to know more or wanting to see want would happen next. I really enjoyed the use of a fallen Empire, a forbidden royal romance, and an ancient treaty with the Fae were used within this story. All are elements I really love and this was done well in my opinion. I thoroughly enjoyed it. The world within this story is one that is marked with greed and swimming with rebellion, and death lurks in the shadows just waiting to consume anyone that puts up a fight. This world is intriguing and enthralling, and I was able to picture it well while I read it. When a friendship between Corvus, an heir to the most powerful house, and Crown Princess Saphyr becomes frowned upon and by the Emperor due to the threat Corvus poses the Emperor forbids their friendship from transpiring any longer. He doesn't take kindly to the forbidding and formulates an Alliance to over throw the Emperor. But a betrayal buckles his plans and sends him into exile. When the lethal Queen of the Sirens emerges from the secret realm of Sirenibus, Corvus is tempted by an irresistible deal at a dangerous price. And through out the story he is caught up in a conspiracy and a war between light and darkness that could be terrible destruction. It's up to him and Saphyr to fight to save everyone from a terrible fate and hopefully restore the Empire to its former glory. But along the way he may have to sacrifice more than he is willing to give. This was a very enjoyable read and I'm looking forward to seeing where this story goes. Thank you NetGalley for an arc of this book.
Gripping and interesting read, hooked me from first 4 pages which I love, loved how the characters evolved and how the story came together from start to finish, you want be disappointed in this book. I read this in 1 sitting couldn't get enough
All in all, this is a solid read. With the writing style and content though, I would rate this is more of a younger YA fantasy. Were I in my early teens I would’ve absolutely devoured this book. To be honest, even in my 20’s I did appreciate the flow as it was easy to keep up with even with my ADHD. I think the storyline and plot were very well thought out and most of the plot twists were not predictable as happens frequently with YA fantasy. I do wish the characters could have been more fleshed out. I love that the characters are flawed without being demonized for it, I just wish we could’ve seen more of it.
Fast read, perfect for young adult fantasy fans. Humans, mythical creatures plus love, greed, treason, fights. Read to find out who has immortal soul 😃
*thank you to netgalley and the publisher for a copy in exchange for an honest review* Immortal Souls took me by surprise! I really enjoyed it. The cover sucked me in (hello, that is gorgeous 🤩), and the synopsis was intriguing. Immortal Souls follows Corvus, the sole Heir to the most powerful house, as he created an Alliance to overthrow the current Emperor. However, things go sideways when he is exiled. Corvus is tempted to create an irresistible deal with the Queen of the Sirens, but how far will he go to help Saphyr, his crush since childhood? How far will he go to save the Empire, Saphyr, and his life long friend Kanis? Plot wise: the only thing I have to say about it is that I wish we got introduced to the mythological aspects of the world before we did. It felt jarring to suddenly go from Corvus on a boat to ‘oh wow Sirens are real?’ If we were introduced to it earlier, it would’ve been better. Characters: I really loved Corvus. It’s been a while since I read a book from a males POV, and it was refreshing. I also loved Kanis, he was funny and really fun. Saphyr on the other hand, for most of the story she was very one dimensional. But around the 70% mark, I finally liked her a bit. Overall, Immortal Souls was a really fun and easy read! Very fast paced, intriguing, and the romance is great.
