The Immortality Thief is a ridiculously fun, fast paced, seat-of-your-pants read full of treasure hunts, traps, deadly enemies, betrayal, secrets, mysterious aliens, adventure and action as the story races to the find the secret to immortality.

Linguist and scoundrel Sean Wren is in trouble. Again. And this time, his sentence is to salvage the data of the Philosopher Stone experiments from an abandoned, long lost ship—before it explodes in a supernova.

But this spaceship isn’t as abandoned as they thought. When Sean arrives with his crew, they discover the place is crawling with monsters, and some of its original residents still lurk in the shadows. Dark secrets are scrawled in languages only Sean can read. Worse, the Ministers, humanity’s greatest oppressors, are also stalking the ship’s empty corridors, seeking the same data.

Trapped and with time running out, Sean will have to rely on his wits, his closest friend Benny, the monsters within, and the enemies around him to get out with the riches he was promised.

Praise For…

"I read this six-hundred page beast in a single sitting because I couldn't put it down. Hunt's debut is riveting, edge-of-your seat thrills, with plenty of oh-shit and oh-no-look-out moments, but it also examines how people try to be better after making mistakes they regret—and how some are eager to simply make more mistakes. Grab this now. You'll devour it." -- Kevin Hearne, New York Times bestselling author of Ink & Sigil

"An electrically brisk science fantasy adventure filled with the warmth of found family, lively humor, and high adventure. You’ll want to spend time with this crew of space salvagers as they encounter ancient power that could change their fortunes… if they can think on their feet quickly enough." -- World Fantasy Award-winning and New York Times-bestselling author Tobias S.
