Review: Do you like books full of adventure? Well if you do you would probably like the book Immortal Lycanthropes by Hal Johnson. The main character is named Myron who is said to be ugly but he possesses the power to turn into an animal and is immortal. Another main character is a girl named Alice who is just like Myron when it comes to being immortal and turning into a animal.

The book is about a boy named Myron that doesn't know that he is immortal until a girl named Alice tells him that he is. Along with telling him that he is immortal, she tells him that he will stay the same height, same age, and will never hit puberty like every one else in the world. After they talk about his new discovery about himself, she says that he needs training, so she knocks Myron out and leaves him in a ditch. When he wakes up, he meets Mr. Rodrigues who helps Myron out of the ditch, while making him drink fruit juice and aspirin to ease his pain. But after he heals, he finds Benson who is the villain of the story and is like Myron. They meet on the railroad tracks where Myron is still really hurt. With all of the obstacles in his path, what is in store for Myron and will he ever be the same again?

In conclusion, I would say this was a good book over all mostly because of the story's suspense. But even with suspense, I would say this books ending could use some work because it didn't tell me what happened to Myron and the rest of the characters. It certainly leaves the book open to a sequel. Overall, I seriously recommend Immortal Lycanthropes to anyone that likes a good adventure.
