"For centuries, they have lived among us. When they were discovered, they were called witches, vampires, or devils and sentenced to a quick death. They are human just like us, except for a rare genetic quirk that has granted them immortality. Now, a chance encounter with a beautiful woman has led John Rogers into the middle of a secret war between the immortals. She needs his help in the battle between a rebellious group and their elders. The grand prize in this war is eternal life. The Furies weaves cutting-edge science into a far-ranging thriller, showing how a simple genetic twist could have inspired tales of witchcraft and sorcery, and how the paranormal could be possible"-- Provided by publisher.

I've read and enjoyed two previous Alpert novels, and also liked this one very much. It has an exciting story line of conflict well seasoned with romance. Four stars.

This was the 1st novel I've ever read by this author. It wasn't a "bad" novel, but it was different. Nothing like I'd expected. It had a few places where it actually got exciting, though those places are few. The worst thing I could say about this novel is trying to understand the DNA of the women/males. Don't think I'd ever read it again, and not sure I'd read another of his. So I only gave it 2 stars.
