Neveah – Leader of a group of immortals known as The Tribe.
Jagger Baird – An Immortal.
Beth Baird – Jagger’s Mortal Wife.
Bale – Leader of the Immortal group, The Clan.


A follow up to the 13th Tribe finds Jagger Baird once again engaged in a battle against immortals wanting to destroy the planet. This time, Jagger is faced not only with the Tribe, but with a new group known as The Clan. The Tribe, led by Neveah is out to capture Beth and discover what she’d said to one of their members that allowed him to die. The Clan has their own goals that Jagger must discover.


A great followup to The 13th Tribe. Double the immortal action this time around as Jagger is attacked by 2 sides. This novel introduces a new group known as The Clan that is even darker than the Tribe was. While Jagger is faced with the danger presented by The Clan, his wife and son are faced with the danger of The Tribe, led by Neveah. There are twists, turns, and betrayals in a battle between good and evil.

The one drawback I had with this novel, unlike the previous one was the preachiness. The first novel while Christian based fiction, didn’t get preachy. It was just a good thriller novel. This one didn’t seem to follow that mold, and at times just seemed to be a bit over the top.

However, that aside, I’d recommend it to general audiences over 13. If Christian based literature though isn’t your thing, you may not enjoy it. I found it enjoyable just as a thriller and for that I’d recommend it. If you read it, be sure and stop back by to let us know what you thought.
