Review: No such thing as immortality - Sarah Tranter


A vampire does not have to feel any emotion not of his choosing. And Nathaniel Gray has spent two hundred years choosing not to feel. But when he accidentally runs Rowan Locke off the road, he is inexplicably flooded with everything she’s feeling, and that’s rage, and lots of it.

He is consumed with the need to protect Rowan at all costs, including from himself. To Nate what is happening is unthinkable, and is pretty much as unbelievable as the existence of faeries.

But you see, there is no such thing as … immortality.

My thoughts:
Maybe English vampire books just have another feel to them, or maybe it was because Nathaniel totally pulled off Mr Darcy ;) Either was it was a good vampire novel that felt fresh in an era when that's hard.

These vampires survive on pig's blood and do not feel. Because when you are that old feelings will just drag you down. In comes Nathaniel, our 200 old vampire (an Earl too btw). He tries his best to be modern but has trouble with it. Instead he tends to go a bit Mr Darcy, which was totally adorable and made me giggle. He is truly the perfect gentleman.

Rowan, the heroine, says what she feels and when they meet, and crash. Something happens. These two are meant to be and to see him try to court her, yes adorable. There could have been a bit of a stalker warning because of how he wanted to protect her, but when you realize all the facts in the end it makes sense. Some are just meant to be. And to feel after having not feel for 200 years, well it gets a bit intense.

Something else is also at play in this book. I can't say too much, but yes all is not as it should be.

Conclusion:
A delightful novel.
