If you like vampires and wolves, this is a good one for you. A curse to give the head vampire the first born of daughters seems to be a good plan until a wolf comes along. The wolf falls for one of these forbidden girls who is promised to the vampire. The vampire has the girl but he cannot take her. There are some good twists in this story, worth the read.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Beauty and the Beast, October 2, 2010

This review is from: The NightMan (Kindle Edition)
Ms. Mitchell gives us a twist on the love triangle with a vampire, a virgin and a werewolf.

Caitlin is bound to Dorian, the vampire, by a family vow made long before her birth. She is not your simpering virgin and fights to stay an indiviual.

Dorian is not your gentle kind vampire of other books. He enjoys his power and uses it to his advantage.

Adriel is bound to Dorian through family tradition but also has watched over Caitlin through the years.

This is a well written novella that will keep you engaged to the end. The story is sensual, sad at times and I found myself caring what happened to each of the characters. You won't be disappointed with this novella. It is a quick read and well worth purchasing.

4.0 out of 5 stars Werewolf and Vampire Read Intriguing for the Young, September 7, 2010
By 
L. C. Henderson (Velddrift, South Africa) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
This review is from: The NightMan (Paperback)
Intrigued by werewolves and vampires? Then look no further than the novella The NightMan, by T.L. Mitchell. This novel, though only 55 pages long, is an erotic thriller that will have you on the edge of your seat with excitement and tantalized taste buds. Mitchell knows how to evoke a mysterious atmosphere, despite her approach not being of the most original: "A thick foggy mist floated silently through the trees, drifting down to the cold wintry ground." Still, there is much for her young adult audience to appreciate, especially if you come to her work with minimal exposure to more evolved writing.

The historical background of the story is traced back to "the mid-evil times of Ireland, [when] Vikings invaded the Irish some 26 times following their first appearance on the island." The characters are as believable as they can be in the paranormal genre, with more attention being paid to their superficial appearance than to the inner workings of their psyches: "The coats they wore complimented [sic] the frilly shirts and appeared to be more of the English formal ware."

The plot itself is fairly straightforward. The NightMan tells of Caitlin, a beautiful woman who is caught between the control of a ruthless vampire and her yearning to be truly loved. The object of her desire is Adriel, the NightMan, who longs, in turn "to give Caitlin the love of a man who would truly love the very breath which left her body." What holds him back from doing so is his transformation into "a tall, monstrously wicked and evil creature." Their erotic encounter is described with fervor and in graphic detail by the ardent Mitchell, who portrays the two lovers as being consumed by hunger and desire for each other.

The NightMan will most probably find a wide audience among older teens and young adults who have yet to learn a great deal about life and relationships. As the genre is extremely popular at the moment, with much coverage both on screen and in text, the novella should receive a rapturous welcome from those who enjoy light reading and an uncomplicated plot.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Sucessful Story ...TL Mitchell, July 25, 2010
By 
This review is from: The NightMan (Paperback)
Author T.L. Mitchell has graced Paranormal Romance Guilds Review Team with a Preview of her new piece, a charming, romantic and utterly sensual story of love, lust, and danger in a world where Vampires and Werewolves exist . Ms Mitchell is not new to this world , as this comes directly after release of the second book in her wonderful Dark of kNight series.

The Nightman is Adriel, dark, larger than life, manning the door at a local Club Tiffanys. It is here we see Caitlin coming to the club to meet Dorian the vampire. Through a series of flashbacks Ms Mitchell gives us an understanding into the backgrounds of the some major players and why we are here at this place and time.

The writing is paced very well, and you can "feel" Adriel and his wants and needs as you were he...Caitlan's gentle soul is all he needs to tame his beast with-in. If they can just be rid of Dorian.

The Prologue and Epilogue(chapter 9) were a great touch...Love it!!!

Dorian has been a major player in Caitlan's and Adriels histories and my one wish is to hope we might have gotton to know this tortured soul better...Or is Ms Mitchell saving him for another story later???

Looking foward to many more great reads from this author!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars "A Forever Kind of Thing", July 14, 2010
This review is from: The NightMan (Paperback)
In this enthralling and beautifully written short story, Ms. Mitchell pens a world so vivid and compelling, it catapults her talent into a whole new league. From its opening scene, The NightMan grabs hold of the reader and does not let go even after the last page is turned. It's the kind of tale you'll find yourself reading again and again. I truly fell in love with the story and its characters - Caitlin and Adriel simply stole my heart. What an excellent job dear Tracey! :-)

This is a great short story by T. L. Mitchell. It really shows the "dark side" to the vampires. It is a true love story.

3.0 out of 5 stars Two Strong Alpha, January 23, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The NightMan (Kindle Edition)
Two strong alpha male, one good and the other sadistic vying to possess a damsel that is not in distress.
I do like the way the author presented the two main male characters in the story, both are strong in their own right that the inevitable confrontation between them is worth waiting for. I like them both.
The female main character however is like a bratty and spoiled teenager towards the two men especially towards the vampire because she knew she is potently protected from any harm from him. It is especially annoying when her mouthiness and self absorption turns into just screams of no when the inevitable battle oocured, which is of course because of her too.
Over all it is a predictable almost boring read. Three stars for the two strong alpha.
