Back Cover Blurb


They came from the dawn of recorded history, living, and struggling for survival alongside mortal men and women. Descendants of the legendary first immortal, they are beings of incredible power, able to heal any wound or disease. To stay forever young, they feed on the human life force. Able to recover from almost any injury, they move across the centuries seeking answers for their condition, while trying to maintain their unique and often uneasy relationships with ordinary mortals.

When a powerful and influential covert terrorist group makes a daring move to reshape human politics forever, both mortals and immortals join forces to stop them. But then an even greater threat emerges, when a secret group of evil immortals seeks to dominate the world by altering human evolution with the most destructive biological weapon.

To prevail in this secret war, humans and immortals need each other. Both must be willing to pay a price for the survival of both species—the price of life.

About this Book

At the dawn of civilization, a prehistoric hunter finds an unusual meteorite that offers him powers of life and death and makes him an immortal. Twelve thousand years later, his descendants, inheriting the gene of immortality, are living in secret among unsuspecting humans. Able to give and take life at will, they struggle for survival across the centuries.

When a group of human fanatics and evil immortals each come with their own horrific plan for world domination, other humans and immortals must join forces to stop them regardless of the cost. At stake is the survival of both races as they prepare to face the greatest challenge of their lives.

A Review

Feel free to use all or part of the following, and edit to suit. This content was prepared for your use. We ask no acknowledgement of any kind.

In David Crane's novel Price of Life, two distinct races—one human, another immortal—have been living side by side since the dawn of recorded history. Sired by the powerful, legendary first immortal, Magnus Prime, the immortals skillfully blend into human populations, migrating, hiding their true nature and struggling for survival. Their astonishing ability to heal any sickness or wound by touch is balanced by their terrifying power to drain humans of their life force at will. Able to survive and fully recover from almost any injury, they can be your best friend or your worst enemy.

A powerful covert terrorist group headed by a fanatical visionary has a plan for the United States. If it succeeds, it will alter the balance of power and change the country forever. At the same time, a secret society of evil immortals has its own vision of the future and its own new plan for the human race. After an immortal visionary with the ability to see the future gains knowledge about the upcoming apocalyptic event, a legendary immortal figure comes out of the shadows.

In this secret battle for the future of mankind, both human and immortal virtues of love, honor and bravery are tested to the limit.
