As punishment for plotting with his brothers to steal immortality, Garreth is suffering a freezing torment until the end of time. Again and again, his fierce fighter s physique is frozen into a chiseled ice sculpture, his heart hardening like a diamond in his chest only to thaw and resume the chilling torture. Until, like his older brother Dethan, he is offered a reprieve from a goddess in exchange for his allegiance in a celestial civil war.
Garreth lives to fight and fights to live. But while laying siege to an embattled city, he finds another reason to go on a beautiful warrior woman named Sarielle, who commands a mythic beast through a mysterious and powerful bond. Terrified of her strength, the city rulers have kept her captive, and now she refuses to submit to a new master. As Garreth seeks to unleash her passion and melt the icy resistance of her heart, will he become her ultimate salvation or lead them both to greater destruction?"

Immortal Garreth takes the protagonist baton from elder sibling Dethan (introduced in Cursed by Fire) in Frank’s formulaic second romantic fantasy about a war between the gods. While Dethan had been condemned to burn, Garreth was sentenced to spend every day of his ill-gained eternal life repeatedly frozen through, thawed, and then frozen again. But when Weysa, goddess of conflict, deems him a necessary addition to her army, she grants him a partial reprieve: he will only freeze for a few hours a day. The rest of the time, Garreth will lead an assault on the enemy city of Kith. There he encounters Sarielle, who is held captive by a cruel ruler because she possesses power over a gigantic dragon that bows to her every command. She is also wise enough to advise the brothers on matters of war and politics. Unfortunately, Frank never gets the fantasy and romance to mesh long enough to sustain a convincing story in this invented universe. (Apr.)
