"Review from Penny for My Thoughts Book Blog" - Penny Stephanie
This book has mystery, intrigue, HOT vampires, myths that are found to be truths, love and death, and friendship, one life forgotten and left behind, to begin a new life in a new city as a new person, and did I mention HOT vampires.  Dylan has her whole future in front of her or does she?  What is to come of the relationship and declarations set forth from Nico to Dylan?  Will Nico and Dylan find their happy ever after or is their eternity doomed?

I have read the other reviews on this novel and am thoroughly confused. I found the characters annoying and in no way was he a hot anything never mind vampire. I guess different things appeal to different people. I found no tension, the lead female was so unlikable. I couldn't figure out her motivation past childish behaviour. Who does what she does? Stupidity does create passion in any one! Yet many people have enjoyed this so I will beg to differ and say little else.

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 just vacation. But the damage had been done. She is now on the vampires radar, as a problem that needs to be handled. She leaves Paris behind because she thinks she might have a stalker, and settles down in Florence, Italy, for the rest of her time off. Then things get really interesting.

Dylan is approached by a very handsome man named Nico, that reveals himself as a vampire. I won't ruin it for the readers, but that scene could have easily been the end of the book. The two end up hitting it off, and a romance blossoms. Now that she is aware that vampires exist, she can no longer go back to life as she knows it-as in she won't be allowed to. An extreme case of be careful what you wish for!

In the beginning of this, I was a little put off with the extremely short scenes. All of a sudden you would be hours past what you were just reading, and have no idea that the scene was over, and you need to move on. It must have gotten better though, because once I got pulled into the story, I couldn't put it down, and I no longer paid attention to the abrupt scene changes. To be fair to the author, I was reading an advance reader copy, and maybe the scene breaks just weren't there. When I say that I couldn't put it down-that is literally what I meant.

Are vampires real? Dylan, a young and beautiful woman is determined to find out for herself if these mysterious and haunting creatures exist, but never dreams she is about to bite off much more than she can chew. Fast paced, sexy and fun modern twist on the romantic side of the vampire tale that leaves you 'thirsty' for more. Not my usual cup of tea, but grabbed me from the beginning and I think would hold the attention of most women who will find their mouths watering for the hunky vampires so ably depicted by this author who seems to know what women want. Italy makes a great backdrop for this story of forbidden love. Take a bite and you'll want the next course. Mark H. Newhouse, The Midnight Diet Club and How to Sell Your Books Checklist

A very good take on what happens when a human learns of the existence of vampires and what her life is like knowing that truth.

Yes, it is a love story but with a mix of suspense I was not expecting. I just wish the writer would have realized that men read her books and could use a little more truism then just hunky dudes with stamina.

All in all, a good read.

Let me start by saying that I am SO glad the second book is due out on Dec. 1st!!

I really enjoyed this book and this will be a series that I continue to follow. The characters aren't over the top, keeping them believable, which is important to me when reading paranormal.
We meet Dylan, who is bored with the direction her life is taking in Florida, and embarks on a vacation to a vampire symposium, only to leave completely disappointed. True, she didn't think she'd actually find a real vampire while there, but the wannabe's she came across actually ticked her off.
She left early and headed to the next leg of her journey in Paris, only to become creeped out by a feeling of being watched, and bails to Italy. Now she's in the middle of some really crazy business, and doing her best to keep her head above water.

You've got to pick this one up guys!! I mean now. Why are you still reading this? GO!

This was a perfect story for my summer reading. The story moves along smoothly and the action is well timed. Even the sexual encounters are tastefully done, and nothing "porno-like". I'm looking forward to reading the rest of the series!

The Mortal One is about Dylan, a young lady who went on an adventure to Europe with the hopes of finding vampires. Little did she know she would actually find some. This book was exciting and fun to read. Dylan was feisty and the men were sexy. There were moments the plot was a little slow, but it was still well developed. I was left ready to read the next book, and excited that it is already out. It was a great start to what I'm sure is going to be a fun and sexy series to read.

Dylan is obsessed with Vampires, but when her friends find her obsession weird (for someone Dylan’s age), she decides to hide it, and keep her fantasy that vampires do exist to herself.
When Dylan’s parents pass away, she gets the chance to indulge in her vampire fantasy that they do exist, by taking a vacation with the money her parents left her, to a vampire symposium where other than Transylvania. The symposium doesn’t turn out like she had hoped, and all she finds there is a cult of humans who claim to be vampires.
Leaving the weirdos to their cult, she then travels to Paris. Nothing special happens here (at least nothing Dylan is aware of until later in the book when she gains an obsessive stalker). After leaving Paris behind, she then travels to Florence. Now this is where all the drama finally begins, because Dylan finally gets to meet a real vampire. Vampire, Nico, had plans to kill Dylan, but everything quickly changes when they share an unplanned kiss and Nico falls for Dylan. Unfortunately for Dylan, this kiss has forced her life into a direction she can never return from.
If I’m being honest, I wasn’t a big fan of this book, so I won’t be purchasing the next book in this series. The excessive details about Paris and Florence made me want to skip several pages to get to something worth reading. I do like details in a book, especially when I can visualize it so much, it makes me feel like I’m there. Sadly, it felt more like a girl writing in her diary, reliving her trip to Italy, and it was boring. I also didn’t care for the constant details about her needing to eat. Yes, characters need to eat too, but it felt like a filler to get the reader to the main part of the story.
