The Diary of an Immortal by David J. Castello
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Diary of an Immortal: 1945-1959, is a moderately-paced character-driven novel by David J. Castello. Readers follow Steven Ronson, from his work as a U.S. Army Medic in the second world war, to his inevitable awakening as a novice immortal. After he starts consuming a gold-flecked capsule, he notices a change within himself, as his emotions and thoughts evolve. Slowly he learns about an immortality formula created by enlightened monks of Tibet and of an evil man known as Chang Sou. Working with a monk named Chow Li and a Christian priest named Albert, he learns the history of the past 1000 years and the threat posed by Chang Sou and his followers. He also learns if he has what it takes to stop such a treat.
The Author weaves factual historical elements and amazing sensory details into this entertaining historical fantasy piece. I felt these historical elements and conspiracy theories made Diary of an Immortal more surreal, interesting and fun to read. I recommend this novel to friends that enjoy historical fantasies and occult-lite fiction. I gave Diary of an Immortal: 1945-1959 by David J. Castello 5 out of 5 stars. If you decide to read this novel, I hope you enjoy it as much as I have.
