A second installment in a series that began with The Immortal Prince finds undying hero Cayal longing for death but compelled to stay alive for the sake of Tide Lords expert Arkady Desean, with whom Cayal is falling in love. By the award-winning author of the Hythrun Chronicles.

McMillan Palgrave

How do you go about killing yourself when you are an immortal? Is it even possible? Jennifer Fallon explores this tantalizing puzzle in The Gods of Amyrantha, the second in her Tide Lords series.

The Tide is turning and the Tide Lords’ powers are returning with it. Cayal, the Immortal Prince, hero of legend, was thought to be only a fictional character.

Cayal sure wishes that he was a piece of fiction—anything that would help him shuffle off this mortal coil. But even though he longs for a final death, things in the world keep pulling him back. Such as Arkady Desean, an expert on the legends of the Tide Lords who has discovered the truth about Cayal…and captured his heart.

Yes, the Tide Lords will walk upon the earth once more and, with the power that surges through the cosmos, stand poised to wreak havoc on all that humans hold dear. Cayal will have to decide if he wants to go on living just a little longer and if he is willing to risk his fellow immortals’ wrath in order to save the world.


The Gods of Amyrantha continues the adventures of the deadly squabbles between the immortals whose power waxes and wanes on the Tides eternal cosmic waves and of Cayal, an immortal who longs for a true death but gets delayed by true love…

How do you go about killing yourself when you are an immortal? Is it even possible? Cayal, the Immortal Prince, hero of legend, is faced with such a problem.Thought to be a fictional character in a pantheon of immortals who rule the world when the magical Tides of the universe run high, this Tide Lord has existed long enough to tire of most experiences, whether pleasurable or painful. Cayal has seen how fleeting human lives are, and he longs for the cessation of all feeling.
But he finds that even as he longs for a final death, worldly matters keep pulling him back. Such as Arkady Desean, an expert on the legends of the Tide Lords who has discovered the truth about Cayal and the Immortals ... and is a captivating beauty who haunts his dreams.
The Tide is turning once again, and the Tide Lords' powers are returning with it. But great power sometimes doesn't come with great responsibility, and on some level these beings are little more than spoiled children. Their interfamily squabbles are fueled by unimaginable power and could wreak havoc on all that humans hold dear.
Cayal will have to decide if he wants to go on living just a little longer and risk his fellow immortals' wrath in order to save the world ... and one very special woman who is in it.
