    This Review was done in conjunction with Nerd Girl.#NerdGirlAmbzThe Mortal One By: Shannon BellLet me start off by saying BRAVO! The author’s attention to the tiniest detail was overwhelmingly accurate and it put me right in the story alongside the characters. I truly felt I was in the book myself. The writing style of this author is very unique and dead on.The story centers mainly around two characters – Dylan who finds herself left at the altar. As embarrassing, humiliating and hurtful as [...]

    I had seen this one around at some point, so when I was asked if I wanted to review it, of course I said yes. Why? Vampires!Dylan is a vampire fanatic, and she’s out to prove that they exist, even though no one else believes her, and she has no reason to believe that it is so either. With a small inheritance in hand, she goes to a vampire symposium in Romania, or I should say Transylvania-of course. She manages to get briefly involved with a fake vampire cult, and escapes to Paris in order to [...]

     This was a really cool and unique book. The author, Shannon Bell has some interesting ideas that I haven’t heard of previously without going too far from the roots of tradition. The Mortal One takes place primarily in Florence, Italy, with minor appearances in France and Romania. Over the first page or two, I was a little iffy on where the author was going or if I was going to enjoy what she was doing, but it quickly sorted itself out and then I was hooked. It was easy to get lost in the st [...]

    4.5* full review to follow.I have enjoyed this book. It's no secret that I have loved almost all the paranormal books that I've come across so far, and The Mortal One is no exception to that.In The Mortal One we meet Dylan, Dylan is in Transylvania, why? Looking for vampires of course!! Dylan has always been intrigued by the idea that vampires exist, and now she has the opportunity to some digging into that possibility. (I would so love to do this!)In Transylvania Dylan meets Alin; who claims to [...]

    Dylan and Nico come together in an amazing first story. (knowing there is a book two…I can’t wait!!) I love that Dylan is from Florida and is a vampire truth seeker. With Dylan looking for the truth she winds up getting noticed, and not necessarily by the right people. Nico is taken by Dylan and protects her from his own kind. As they get to know each other, Dylan’s world will never be the same. I can’t wait to keep going in this story of vamps and the world they keep hidden from us. #mu [...]

    Dylan and Nico are put together through a chance encounter. But the sparks fly between the two of them and it sets the pace for the story. I enjoyed this read and would recommend it to other PR fans. There are steamy bedroom scenes, heated altercations, and nosey best friends to give you enough change and diversity in the plot to keep the pages turning. I look forward to reading the next book in the series.

    Nico is an Italian vampire, like super duper epic Italian. He is playful, sexy and the appropriate amount of protective given Dylan's circumstance. There was some sexual content so take that into consideration before you pick it up, but if it doesn't bother you I think you'll enjoy this story. One thing I will say if that Nico and Dylan's relationship (Dylan is a GIRL) progresses way to fast for me. There was a lot going on in the background and it didn't lend itself to developing a deep and mea [...]

    The Mortal One is the first book in a paranormal romance series that tells the story of Dylan, a 28 year old woman that is obsessed with everything that has to do with vampires, and her journey through the supernatural world. I must confess that I am such a big fan of vampires so when I got the chance to read this, I was thrilled. There are so many different ways in which vampires are portrayed and I kind of like the one that Shannon Bell used. Her vampires discredit some myths about the charact [...]

    When Dylan decided she needed time away from Florida and her life, she took the opportunity to travel to Transylvania for the Vampire Symposium. She had been fascinated with vampires for a long time and had always wanted to further explore the possibilities of them existing. She was gravely disappointed in the Symposium and Alin who she met up with at the event; he claimed to be a vampire. After this disaster meeting Dylan decides to cut her trip in Transylvania short and continue on to her vaca [...]

    Ok, I’m the last person on Earth who would ever read a romance novel, much less a Paranormal Romance that focuses on a vampire. I met the author at a science-fiction convention and decided I would give this book a chance. As a man, I never pick up romance, but she promised me that I would "like it." While I still had some initial reservations with the subject matter, they were quickly overcome by Shannon Bell’s writing technique and story-telling ability. First of all…ladies… you better [...]


    Tammy-&-Michelle

    Dylan Monohan a vampire lover flees to Romania to a Vampire Symposium after having had a horrible year of lost family and love. She has been smitten with the idea of vampires since she was a child and believes this will be a way to not only get away from her life in Florida but do some truth seeking. Unbeknownst to her she has already been seen and claimed by the one thing she isn’t sure actually exist. She agrees to leave her life behind to stay with Niccolo the beautiful blue eyed vampire wh [...]


    The Monkey's Spoon

    If you were to take every folk story, movie, or book on vampires and throw it in a blender you'd get The Mortal One. Now I mean this in the best possible way. This book took, what I thought, was the best theories on what a vampire is like and created a whole new story. It takes place during modern times and moves mostly between Florence and Paris.Our heroine, Dylan, is looking for a good distraction after being dumped at the altar. Feeding her curiosity for vampires seems like a good way to go. [...]

    Received a copy in exchange for an honest review“Being near him was unlike any other experience for me. Sure there’d been other men, but Nico was different. He was intoxicating and an addiction was quickly forming.”4 stars. I don’t normally read paranormal books, but this has vampires and I’m obsessed with them. I’m so glad I decided to give this series a chance I love this book!!!!Have you ever wondered what would happen if you went looking for vampires? What if you secretly believe [...]

Interpreted by the Italian vampire community as a “truth seeker” Dylan is marked for death with the debonair Nicco as her assassin.

    I was sent an ecopy of this book in exchange for an honest review on my blog. See my blog post here:thehoardingreaderscornersOverall, I would say I liked it. I didn't love it, it didn't hold my attention the first two-thirds of the book. But once I got into it, I did actually enjoy the read and I'm most definitely interested in reading the next in the series.I think what set me off for much of the book was that it felt very rushed. I was honestly very confused at the beginning. I felt like I was [...]


    Nevada

    This book hits it's mark dead center for a vampire paranormal romance, and has all the requirements. Cute, kind, and protective (sometimes blending to jealous) hottie vampire. Independent woman, already intrigued by vampires, who dives head-long into the newly discovered world and hot steamy sex with her new insta-love. Equally hot, yet undesirable (for some reason), complication guy, Olivier, that throws a wrench in their happily ever after. The author manages to insert a couple of fresh (to me [...]

    Captivating beginning to a four book series. This book was a smooth read, that kept my interest from beginning to end. The characters were interesting, even if some of them didn’t make the best choices. I mean, “What idiot goes sight seeing at night in a busy city, alone, on foot”. But then, I know a few females that would, and have done so. So I would have to say that Dylan is very real, just not the brightest decision maker. But she does have good taste in men, or vampires I should say. [...]

    This girl Dylan has been fascinated by vampires since forever. She has been linked to a club that has a convention. The real vampires monitor the situation to make sure that they are still a secret. Dylan was abandoned a the altar, her parents died and now she wants to know if vampires are actually real. She takes an adventure throughout Europe to see everything unknowingly getting the attention of the vampires. I thought the story line was good and it had enticed me to read it. Also, I met the [...]

    It’s been a while since I’ve read a vampire book, but now I’m thinking it’s been too long because I really enjoyed this book. The Mortal One starts in Transylvania so I was worried that this book was going to be full of clichés, but it definitely wasn’t. But that’s only one of the reasons why I liked this book.I loved the main female character, Dylan (“Dylan can be a girl’s name, too”). She had a fascination for all things vampire, but she still wasn’t prepared for the world [...]

    4.5 Stars!Book provided in exchange for honest review.This is a really entertaining story that had me hooked from the first page. Our intrepid heroine Dylan manages to learn about the existence of things that go bump in the night in a most unusual way, and then things really become interesting once she's in Florence, Italy and makes the acquaintance of Nico, and is having to learn how to wrap her mind around all of the changes that have been thrown her way and for the ultimate decision she'll ne [...]

Also she is taking a vacation, to Paris and Italy. Obsessed with vampires Dylan is in for a shock. Welcome Nico, hot sexy alpha male. Who becomes smitten with Dylan.

    Ashley Nemer

    This is a story about a woman, Dylan, who is obsessed with Vampires. Eat Sleep Breath Vampires. And when she finally finds them she freaks the F out!I am not really sure how to start this review. The book wasn't bad, but it just didn't grab me. The characters moved along and sometimes I questioned the motives that they had. And sometimes the actions, or internal thoughts, didn't make sense to me from Dylan.The book was okay - It was an easy read and I didn't find anything wrong with the overall [...]


    Romance Readers Retreat

    This book had a slow uptake in the first chapter or two, but the author did a fabulous job of getting my attention by chapter 3 ish The two main characters, Dylan and Nico are very well written and mesh well together. Dylan is a fairly put together woman who is trying to get on with her life after being left at the alter, and she embarks on an adventure based on her obsession with vampires . little does she know . her obsession can have so real "qualities" about it.I don't want to give too much [...]


    Rebecca

    Loved this book!This is the kind, or one of the kinds of vampire romance novels I love and this one was very well done, by a professional writer and editor. The story was very fast paced and interesting all the way thru. I really liked the main female character on this one and the vamp too. She isn't flakey or immature or wishy washy like some are in these types of books. Where in some you want to smack the main female upside the head. No I really liked both main characters in this one. The vamp [...]


    Christina Munson

    *This book was provided by the publisher/author to Nerd Girl Official for an honest review.I really enjoyed this book. While The Mortal One does have similarities to other paranormal romance books involving vampires it is still very good and has its own unique qualities. The characters are fun and sexy, and where there are parts that are dangerous and serious there are also parts that are humorous and full of the newfound love the main characters have for each other. I look forward to reading bo [...]

    To become a vampire or die? What would you pick? Once you become aware of them, you are lucky to even get a choice. That is the decision that Dylan must face when she gets too close in her obsession with vampires. Luckily, she meets Nico and falls in love with him so that makes the decision a little more easy. But it is never easy, is it? Along the way she catches the face of Olivier, a vampire with super abilities and who wants her, whether or not she wants him. Plus, he can always make her wan [...]
