Draft Blurb For “Immortal Forever”

Posted in Immortal Forever, Update with tags , , , , , , , , , on September 17, 2015 by Kaden Brown

Immortal Forever – a literary fiction

Moving to Zelenograd, a small city northwest of Moscow, is a new start, an opportunity for career progress. Svetlana, a militia member seconded from the capital is excited and proud to be serving the socialist cause.

Her husband Anton, is absent in the east, crime is rising, and Khrushchev’s reforms are taking their toll. All is well until she crosses paths with unsavoury Soviet deputies exploiting their new freedoms, and a criminal underworld invigorated by endemic corruption and dramatic social change following the official denouncements of Stalinism.

A deathly darkness is approaching that she is unable to stop, without betraying the very people, and the very system she has sworn to protect.

A startling literary fiction that commentates on the defence of Stalinism in the face of an onslaught of freedom for which even the most devoted will give their soul for just one taste.

Counter poses the viciousness and attractiveness of liberalism with the order and discipline of a dour socialist society struggling to maintain itself in the face of external forces.

A subtle expose of Soviet life and the struggle of one woman to keep mind and soul together.

A critique of the competition between socialism and liberalism by way of a vicious and blood-soaked vampire novel in which  one woman’s life and family are destroyed, at the same time giving her hope, before crushing all her dreams and her soul in a nightmare of violence and gore.


Immortal Forever will be available in a couple of years time – so don’t get too excited just yet. At roughly 500 pages the novel will also have its own twitter page @immortal4eva (https://twitter.com/immortal4eva). The picture above, will probably be the cover, or I may use an original picture based on an idea represented in a previous image (you may find it in a previous posting, or somewhere in the right-hand menu column).
