D was at the very start of the book I couldn t work out the scene at all and it took a few reads to ascertain that the hero is racing his souped up car against his friend s with their lights off why Why exactly did he crash into her something that I would have expected him to focus on Does he have super keen reflexes and would have expected to automatically avoid her I m still very confused about the whole sceneAlso how old is the heroine I originally thought she was in her early twenties then after calculating her relation ship with Jordan thought mid twenties But later we are told the incident involving Seth was 29 years ago so she s in her thirties And she s been with the current architectural firmI gave up I like the idea of the book I m intrigued by the concept of a faerievampire relationship but I wish there were clues about the nature of the heroine and I don t mean the vague refusal to mention anything by Aunt HettyHeatherThat was another thing The nicknamefull name consistency The book is from his POV and either he calls his brother in law Freddy or Frederick Stick with one please and after 200 years surely his whole coven should be using the same nicknames This was my daughter s biggest bug bear and she insists there were too many nicknamefull name combosSo Twilightesue Vampires tick Emotionally intense tick Insta attraction tick Wanting to kill on sight tick Someone wanting to kill her and he has to prevent it tick She is his life etc tickYetI m not gasping for 2 Please Ms Tranter it is a wonderful storyline Get a better editor and some enthusiastic beta readers who aren t afraid to pull it to bits I found this a really original vampire tale and I did enjoy it a lot I liked the characters and it also made me laugh really hard and probably than any book in a long long time This is a vampire novel with a difference it s told entirely from the hero s point of view And not only is he the hero he s also what he himself calls a monster a vampire Only the reader sees a whole different side to him than the one he normally shows the world One you can t help falling in love with ust like the heroine does I found this a fascinating story compelling from start to finish and unbelievably poignant There are villains and evil magic and mysteries but through it all there s love A love that shouldn t be A love that could be dangerous And I couldn t stop reading until I found out if it could possibly work out If you like vampires stories you ll love this one If you don t you ll like it anyway A refreshingly different read from the hugely massive and popular vampire genre Now when I read that the male lead s name was Nathaniel Grey I did moan a little 50 shades sprang to mind sorry ladies but I hated it and detest feeble female leads but Nate is nothing like the odious Christian He is the most human vampire I have met since Bill from True Blood He thinks feels and hurts and Rowan Locke the female lead causes #a lot of these feelings and adjustments which again is completely refreshing His vamp family are funny engaging and help #lot of these feelings and adjustments which again is completely refreshing His vamp family are funny engaging and help novel move smoothly along they do remind me slightly of the Twilight vamp family whom I adore too for their sense of belonging and humour Rowan is Sookie Stackhouse then the feeble Bella Swan in the Twilight Saga which I also love which is great and sets this book apart from the rest All in all this debut novel does not disappoint and I can t wait to see what Sarah Tranter pens next A worthy edition to anyone s bookshelf I reviewed the Kindle version and have the paperback on pre order Choc Lit found a caramel truffle in Tranter a glittering addition to their chocolate box of authors 35 starsDebutWith enhanced senses and hyper reflexes vampires do not crash their cars into other cars Even if they are racing recklessly over backroads in the middle of the night with their lights off Or at least that s what Nathaniel Gray thought until he crashes into the back of Rowan Locke s car ramming her off the roadFor the first time in nearly two hundred years Nate has no control over his feelings He s swamped by emotions emanating from Rowan feeling her anger her hurt causing painful traumatic responses in him From their first meeting Nate senses a connection to Rowan she makes him feel almost alive even though he s been dead for 195 years Unable to resist her keen to understand the connection Nate Earl of Ridings uses his considerable resources and wealth to try and uncover what lies behind their bondThis is a well written debut in a contemporary setting in London and told in an unusual style completely from the hero s point of view A good mixture of romance mystery and paranormal While Nate may have all the powers
ASSOCIATED WITH A VAMPIRE THIS ISwith a vampire this is your usual head kicking alpha vamp He is subtle and a gentleman Although I did find the first part of the story fairly slow going the pace did pick up in the second half An atypical vampire story but with all the lore you d expect No Such Thing as Immortality is the first in a trilogy Hopefully readers will see Nate s best friend James get his happily ever after and answers given to some loose endsAn entertaining slightly different vampire romance and a solid debut for Sarah TranterSteam 15 ARC courtesy of Choc Lit Publishing. Luding from himself To Nate what is happening is unthinkable and is pretty much as unbelievable as the existence of faeriesBut you see there is no such thing as immortalityThis is Nate’s stor.
download Ó eBook or Kindle ePUB » Sarah TranterAfter his involvement in a car accident Nate a vampire finds himself emotionally connected to Rowan a human It doesn t take long before both of them fall deeply in love with each other None of them are aware of the challenges and danger they will be subjected toI thought this book was absolutely amazing The suspense Sarah created left me wanting from the first couple of pages onwards I really enjoyed the storyline Although the whole vampirehuman love relationship is not entirely new the author added some very endearing and exciting featuresThere is a great mixture of funny and witty elements coupled with sheer emotion and intensity All characters are extremely well created and developed I can see why Rowan is attracted to Nate If I would fall for a vampire it would definitely be him Angel or Edward who The ending surprised and intrigued me even further too many secrets remain unsolved and I cannot wait for the next installment I m still reeling from the impact of this amazing book As seen on our blog theromaniacgroupwordpresscom the Romaniacs are big fans of Sarah Tranter and I don t know where to startGahh I love Nathaniel GrayI love all the characters actually and Rowan is basically someone I would wanna be friends with her and Nate s relationship is ust really lovely she s so funny and James he reminds me of Emmeth in twilight his so funny I love the way he and Elizabeths husband teases Nate It s hilarious haha I m not gonna spoil it for anyone so I m ust gonna say I am so recommending this book to anyone its a MUST READ not TO READtrust me you won t regret it5 STARS FROM ME because I love the way Sarah wrote the book and the way she presents her characters I m so glad this is not gonna be the last we hear about this lovely couple A very British vampire novel written by a new writer and published by Choc Lit It has an absolute cracker of an beginning and I could ust imagine it as the opening scenes of a movie After Nate and Rowan s first meeting we begin to wonder if the car crash is an accident or are there scheming sinister forces at play Enter aunt Hettie and the plot thickens I think this book works well because one one hand we have the dark lore of the vampire and on the other the family atmosphere at Ridings Nate is a great hero who bravely struggles to keep his dark side in check whilst falling in love with the sparky Rowan There is the reuisite villain but there are also great secondary characters like James Elizabeth and Frederick I m not a great lover of seuels but in this case I m prepared to make an exception as I m dying to know what happens next As I said above the novel left me wanting Any new Vampire series released is going to get the inevitable Twilight comparison and without thinking about it whether you are a fan or not of Twilight these comparisons will knock around in your head as you readFor me No Such Thing as Immortality is 100 times better than Twilight Not

Satisfying enough Nathaniel Gray I am officially in love with youI m also loving Rowan s Cat Tinks Barking sometimes I d say Rowan added fondly Tinks meowed loudly and leapt from her lap and stalked off That s right Tinks you defend your feline rights to have no dog spoken of in your presence Dear God How the bloody hell could a two hundred and thirty year old vampire go to a human child s birthday party dressed as a bloody dinosaur Think of the most romantic couple you can think of fictional or otherwise I can t imagine even Damon Salvatore would dress as a dinosaur to make Elena Gilbert happy and I ve never seen someone in love than him If that made no sense I urge you to go away and watch The Vampire Diaries and swoon at Damon s bad boy awesomenessYes Nathanial Gray dressed up as Barny the dinosaur for Rowan Now that is love right there This chapter spoke to me so much Nate had warned Rowan off making their relationship intimate for the time being fearing he would not be able to control his bloodlust but I loved the simple chaste kiss he gave her It was heartwarming and had me tearing up It was simple but beautiful and meaningfulBut Nate s own humiliation at having to dress up as a dinosaur ust couldn t be complete without friends like James and Frederick to help you never live it down Barney the WHAT Mama Mia Hamleys A HORNY KISS You dirty bugger After everything you said to me If I was Nate I d take great pleasure in shouting I know a song that will get on your nerves on constant repeat in my head ust to drive them mental although I have to say Elizabeth s own Vampire distracting techniues makes me whoop in delight for Team Girl Power But I do have a great idea for protecting my thoughts from him and enhancing my marriage I ve bought a new book from I m going to read it and then simply think of it when he s around Can you guess The Complete Illustrated Kama Sutra It s a bit tame obviously designed with human limitations in mind but it will get his imagination going on how a Vampire might improve on the positions High five Elizabeth And this round goes to the girlsAnd I m going to take a moment here to rave about how much I love the relationship between Nate and Elizabeth You find out later in the book the reason for why they were both turned and the respect I felt for Nate after finding out the reason behind his transition was overpowering It s very often in fiction that the sibling relationship is overshadowed by the romantic elements of the story so I love that Sarah Tranter wrote such a beautiful heartfelt relationship between Nate and Elizabeth that lets you know that they ll always be there for each other in their times of need We hugged surrounded by giant cuddly toys and helicopters buzzing around our heads This had me tearing up Such a beautiful and if I can ever drag my own brother into a toy shop I ll make sure to him by the cuddly toy stands in homage to this beautiful momentSeeing sadness in these characters is something that I love Not because I like to see the characters in pain I m not that mean but because of how they express itI am always furious when I read books and the heroine never cries during a hard time We are women that s what we do best We get emotional and we have a good sob to make us feel better So I was thrilled to see Rowan crying when she was cruelly denied the right to change projects at work to avoid Simeon Frey I could hear the rustle of the tissue as she wiped her nose I ve been working here for eight years and have never cried in toilets before And speaking of Simeon Frey shudderskeep an eye on him He s far too slimy for his own goodAnd when the moment we all dread arrives I am strangely relieved that Rowan is scared of Nate Do not be scared Do not be scared You re a #fucking vampire Finally As much as I love Twilight s Bella I ve always thought she was incredibly stupid for ust #vampire Finally As much as I love Twilight s Bella I ve always thought she was incredibly stupid for Personality Selling just away the fact that Edward was a vampire as though he dust told her he was a rock star Even if the guy has been nice to you take a moment to show a little bit of fear Nate is amazing and I love him to bits but Rowan is right to be af Choc Lit whom I love sent me the link to the free book publicising it as a good fix for those of us still suffering from Twilight withdrawal Well I was hooked as would any Twilight fan be I
Can See Why They Make This Claimsee why they make this claim the writing is very similar particularly the depths to which the author delves to explain the hero s perspective Hero POV Unfortunately and I cannot tell if this is due to editorial cutting or the author s decision there are too many Lissa just there moments There is too little build up to significant eventsemotionsdecisions and too much build up in other placesI do not see the point of Madeleine she gives no additional insight to any of the characters psyche unless her purpose is to be an information tool but even that felt unnecessary as any of the other characters could have provided that The flashback to explain the current circumstances was so far into the book it was unnecessary we d managed to piece it all together by then and the regressionust felt like we were being the same thing all over againSeveral times it took me a few sentences to work out what was going on the first time this happene.
