Rating AThis review first appeared on Brief Encounters ReviewsJordan Castillo Price has crafted a real gem of a story to finish off the Petit Morts series and while I m sad there won t be any in the future I can t think of a fitting ending for this last batch of stories Immortal Coil weaves together two very different romances the human and the immortal in a way that is profoundly satisfying entertaining and movingThe story begins with Chicago teacher Richard Hill marking student essays about the heart A former wrestling coach who was injured in a shooting Richard has had to leave behind his old jock identity for the sake of his health there s a bullet lodged in his pericardium which could end his life at any moment Rather than allowing this to make him bitter however Richard has found a sort of peace in his new calmer life His thoughts about how Coach Rick would have reacted to events show us just how much he has changed Price allows Richard s character to unfold slowly giving us a nuanced portrait of a man who is ready to embrace life again but who hasn t yet found the key to doing soRichard encounters a small fairground while looking for somewhere to eat and decides on a whim to try the hot dogs there There s something incredibly atmospheric about this neighbourhood carnival run down and off season a tattooed and pierced girl selling tickets Sweets to the Sweet has been downgraded to a candy booth with Chance spinning cones of candyfloss for the fairgoers It may not be chocolate but Chance puts the same level of dedication into making perfect cotton candy as he does with his chocolatesWhile the setting may not have been as exotic as the other Petit Morts in this last batch I found it absolutely spellbinding especially when first seen through Hunter s non human perspective His voice is both playful and wonderfully compelling and his point of view sections are probably my favourites in the whole story For example this is how he sees the fairground and Chance s two soon to be loversThe strands of destiny were packed so close it was as if the carnival sat suat and eager in the center of a great glittering web just waiting to ensnare hapless souls in its mandibles and swaddle them tight in their various fates Take those two guys over by the scrambler Hunter could barely restrain himself from grabbing them by the hair jamming their faces together and singing out Kisses Those two men Hunter spies are Richard and young Joel Weaver a former student who remembers Richard from his Coach Rick days Joel has been paired up with the irrepressible Hunter doing a weekend stint as a medic at the fairground for extra cash and he encounters Rick while dealing with an injured fair goer The chemistry between the two men is instantly apparent but it s handled with a rather slower burn than in some of the other PM stories and they manage to go a whole day before hooking up properlyI love the way Richard and Joel s growing intimacy was handled Joel s initial difficulties with flirting and resentment of good looking guys after recently being dumped for one are swept out of the way by his lingering crush on Coach Rick now the far approachable Richard Joel s uirky charm blossoms under Richard s patient attention and I was uickly convinced that these two were made for each otherIn contrast to the rather sweet romance of Richard and Joel Hunter and Chance reach new levels of intensity together The scenes with them together are electrifying the air practically sparkling with all that combined tension baffled affection resentment and desire I was enchanted watching the culmination of Chance s slow and grudging acceptance of Hunter s love and Price s prose reaches new heights of poetic beauty when describing their bondAnd suddenly it seemed like they were the only two presences a the fair They didn t even need to look at each other for their awareness of the mortals to fall away It was as if they d each spun themselves out of chaos mere moments before and it was only the two of them in the world one dark and one light And with nothing to compare themselves to even they couldn t tell which was whichThere are many other delights to be found in this last Petit Morts story such as Destiny Kismet and Fortune a trio of fascinating characters We discover about what has happened to put Chance and Hunter in their respective roles and about their history together Not all the uestions are answered but I prefer to be left wondering than have every last little thing spelled out to meFor me though the best part of this whole story was the explosive end to Chance and Hunter s romance They have to work together to save Chance s lovers making a huge sacrifice I m not giving any spoilers but their solution managed to be sexy poignant and incredibly beautiful Their final scene was every bit as moving as the end of Wishink Well but left me brushing away a stray tear rather than reducing me to a blubbery mess thankfully It could be that other readers will be disappointed with the resolution but to me it seemed perfectly right with just a touch of bitter to cut through the sweetThis is clearly not a standalone story and I don t know how much pleasure you d derive from it if you hadn t had a chance to grow to love Chance already but for fans of the series I can t think of a better way this could have ended Satisfying touching and profound Immortal Coil is a truly memorable story

    This was so far my least favorite story of the series While I like the main character Chance the mysterious owner of Sweets to the Sweet and cupid extraordinaire I feel that this story served as a set up for future stories and wasn't as good as a standalone In previous stories Chance works to bring lovers together and the primary focus is on the plot of the two wayward love interests In this story it does beg

    This is the very first thing that J C Price has written that I haven't loved Chance didn't seem right His personality was so different from the other books that I was sure one of the new authors must have written it The characters were confusing The plot was confusing After the absolute wonder that book #10 was this just didn't hold up
