The Immortalists is one of the most engaging and beautiful novels I've read in a long time. The premise seems dark but the storytelling is not at all. Four siblings travel to a local fortune-teller to hear their death date as children and that knowledge (whether believed or not) has startling impacts on their lives. The novel follows each sibling in succession, showing how varried and unpredictable our reactions to knowlege can be. Full of hope and life and promise this is a book that stayed with me long after I closed it's covers.

My new favorite fantasy series! Aptly described as a cross between Douglas Adams and Sir Terry Pratchett this loose series (there are recurring characters but each book is a stand alone within the Farm Boy world) this book will have you laughing out loud. So many fantasy troupes make an appearance but in new and interesting ways.
