A SECRET WORLD.
A THREAT TO ALL MANKIND.
A FIGHT FOR A LIFE WORTH KILLING FOR.
The Immortals are a group of men and women chosen by their Gods to protect humanity from the evils of the world for all eternity. Ryan, Anna, and their companions have been living the immortal life with ease as they secretly protect the innocent and enjoy the fruits of life.
The Immortals are about to face the biggest threat to mankind and the Gods they willingly serve — villainous Immortals called the Risen. The consequences of failure are unimaginable. They must fight their way through traps, traitors, and a host of deadly enemies, before religion is destroyed and along with it, the very essence of humanity.
WILL THEY SAVE THE LIFEBLOOD OF MORTALITY? OR WILL THEY BECOME NOTHING BUT A MEMORY OF THOSE FALLEN TO THE WICKEDNESS OF THE CORRUPT?
Ryan clicked his tongue out of boredom and Cato turned to stare at him. Neither one of them said a word.
Anna finally broke the silence. “So, you’re all chosen or whatever it is?” The drugs must have worn off sooner than he thought.
“No, Damian and I are chosen. We were mortal once. Cato over here is a reborn.” She looked confused. “Just a term we use for Immortals that are born from Immortal parents.”
“Then how do reborns grow if they are Immortal? Doesn’t that mean they can’t change or grow old or whatever?”
“Simple, if it is a boy, physically they grow as a mortal would until they reach the point when their father stopped physically aging and the same if it’s a girl with her mother,” said Cato.
“So at what point do their kids stop growing if their parents have been around forever?” Anna asked.
“It all depends on how old their chosen family members were when they became Immortal. My father was twenty-eight when he was chosen. So I grew as a normal mortal would until my twenty-eighth year and ceased to age physically after.” Cato explained the best he could, “My children with another Immortal, if it were a boy, would grow to be twenty-eight just as me and my father are. A ripple effect for all generations.”
“So do you force your children to fight?” She continued with her questions.
“No we aren’t barbarians.” Ryan laughed. “Reborns can either join the ranks of Immortal Warriors or live forever in peace, but once one is chosen, one must serve the Gods for any amount of time as a Warrior.”
Her body language made it obvious she was still on edge. “And what does he mean chosen by the Gods? Which Gods exactly?”
“All of them. The Gods were created by the minds of mortals. When a God of a certain religion needs help to protect their people, they call on us. We’re slaves to the cause,” Ryan said bluntly. He had to have this conversation multiple times and all three of them repeated the identical answers. It was always the same questions.
“But God created us, not the other way around.”
Ryan sighed. “Hate to break it to you, but man created the Gods. They have all the power you believe them to have and all the weaknesses as well.”
“Then where did we come from?” she asked.
“Ever hear of the big bang theory?” Cato chimed in.
