Goodreads synopsis: Wealthy, handsome Jason Truitt appears to have it all: he runs an international conglomerate of environmental businesses and research facilities, he lives in a luxurious mansion…and he can’t die. But his uncanny health and failure to age keep him distanced from normal human life. For over a century he’s been searching for the one other person on earth he suspects is afflicted with the same condition. Like him, she has lived under many different names to keep her immortality secret, so in honour of her supernatural ability to induce plant growth by thought alone, he thinks of her as Gaia.

Finding Gaia, however, is only the beginning, for where he has used his talents toward prosperity, hers have brought loss, isolation, abduction, and unspeakable torture. She will need all that he can give to reclaim her own inner strength and rediscover who, what, and when she is.

Review: I received a free copy of the book from the author in exchange for an honest review. I’ve learned throughout the months that receiving books from authros for reviews can be either hit or miss. They can be either really good, or really bad. Most fall in the middle range. But this book was amazing. If you’re looking for massive romance, you won’t find it here. Its more fantasy with a romance sprinkled here and there in it.

The storyline was unique. The overall book is really well-written. In fact, I’m surprised the author self-published, instead of a company jumping at the oppurtunity. She’s really that good of a writer. I felt for the characters, and when it ended, it seemed like this should be continued. Immediately I put my Nook down and looked for the suthor’s website to see if there would be a sequel. No news of it though.

This book was absolutely amazing, and I couldn’t put it down. In fact at work, while a group of us were leaving, one of my friends remarked, “I can’t believe you can walk and read at the same time!”
