My Soul to Keep (African Immortals, #1)My Soul to Keep by Tananarive Due

My rating: 3 of 5 stars


Jessica thinks that her husband David is perfect. He is caring and strong and smart. He’s written the definitive textbook on Jazz and he teaches Spanish for fun. He’s amazingly accomplished for a man as young as he is.

But David is hiding something. He isn’t young. He was born in Ethiopia 500 years ago. He’s part of a group of men who were made immortal in a secret ceremony and he’ll do anything to keep it a secret, including murder.

This book drug for me a bit in the middle but then picked up towards the end when Jessica finds out about David. 

Jessica ends up having a very different view on immortality than David does. This book is the first of a series and I think I’ll read the next one to see how the conflict between them plays out.

Linking up to R(eaders) I(mbibing) P(eril).
