When a routine hanging goes wrong, the survivor announces he is Cayal the immortal Prince, a Tide Lord. However, the only known record of the immortal beings of Amyrantha is the Tide Lord Tarot...and everyone knows it is only a parlour-game, an amusement.
Arkady Desean, an expert on the legends of the Crasii - a part-animal, part-human race - is sent to interrogate Cayal. But in exposing this would-be immortal, Arkady's own web of deceit threatens to unravel.
Nothing is as it seems around the Immortal Prince. The lies seem plausible, his stories improbable...and the truth is more than any of them bargained for.

A truly new idea has arived...... Tide magic.
If you could sum up The Immortal Prince in three words, what would they be?
hmmmmm very interesting (in your best Einstein voice)
What other book might you compare The Immortal Prince to, and why?
An interview with a vampire crossed with game of thrones
What about John Telfer’s performance did you like?
well he was just a joy to listen to. A ninja of multiple accents and vocal characteristics. well maybe not that good but he is good
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
hmmmmm , not really, I find this question odd, its a 20 ish hour book.
Any additional comments?
well my Friends come one come all and see a truly novel idea (well I've never seen it before) tide magic. there are chaps and chappets (tide lords) who control tide magic which is controlled by the tide star which seems to come and go from the world ( maybe like an orbiting meteor ) bring the magic to and from the world. the book follows mostly kyelle who is a said tide lord, in jail and being interviewed to see if he is mad as he claims to be a tide lord (an immortal wizard) as the tide is out (no magic around) and has been out for 2-300 hundred years no one believes in tide lords any more. its like interview with a vampire crossed with the intrigue of politics of a roman senate or GOT if ur into your modern hyped up comparisons. I highly endorse this book (for what my humble endorsement means) and hope you all enjoy it.

New concept - novelty character within the genre
What did you like most about The Immortal Prince?
I have read pretty much everything worth reading in the fantasy genre over the last two and a half decades and thus it is very hard for me to find something with novelty character. Tide magic is a new concept, which makes the novel stand out among other fantasy works. Some components of the plot is somewhat reminiscent of Anne Rice's Vampire Chronicles. While many fantasy novels have a medieval setting, this novel appears to have a Baroque setting, also differentiating it from others in the same category.
What was one of the most memorable moments of The Immortal Prince?
What does John Telfer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?
John Telfer is an extremely talented narrator who managed to bring to life the different characters. He is a key reason why I enjoyed listening to the book as much as I did.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
Perhaps the episode when Cayal tried to rescue his daugher Vlis instead of assassinating her.
Any additional comments?
I would say that the whole plot flowed very smoothly, I found it difficult to switch off as I was eager to find out what would happen next.
The characters are all multi-faceted and nobody is really the person they appear to be at first sight. They all have their own secrets, grudges and ambitions. The author reveals this bit by bit as the plot moves along, which kept up the suspense.
