The Last Mortal Man - Syne Mitchell

A young woman dying of untreatable cancer is caught up in a plot to kill the man responsible for an immortality process that could save her if she could 1) afford it and 2) he would allow it. A change of heart leads her to save his life and eventually make a deal to stay out of jail - two and a half centuries of indentured service as his bodyguard. Converted to a Deathless immortal she is highly effective but divisions and enemies her boss makes, including those close to him lead to further conflict in the future. His grandson is allergic to the nanotech that can make people immortal, so when a weapon that strikes at that technology is unveiled, killing most of his rellos, he is tasked with trying to stop it and save some kids. With the help of a posthuman killer bodyguard. 4 out of 5
