The Nightman (more of a Novella than a full story) started out strong. Even though it was about Vampires and Werewolfs there were some original elements that made it stand out a tad bit more than some of the standard fare. I liked that Catlin and Adriel had a backstory where their lives were integrated on and off for about 100 years- this made their culminating love very believable. The idea of a curse that kept Caitlin out of the clutches of Dorian was a clever way to integrate a "love" triangle and make Dorian's obsession believable. (All of this is known very early so no spoilers.) The writing style was decent, made for an easy read but NOT sophomoric.

So why the three stars? Well, there seemed to be a lot of thought into the first half of the book but in the second half, not so much. It made me feel like the author wrote the first half with a lot of energy... let it sit... and then her publisher called and said hurry up you have a deadline. So I feel she rushed it. There was this great buildup of Catlin and Adriel's growing love and this buildup of this great finale... with Dorian, Adriel, and Catlin squaring off after 100 years of pent up resentment, lust, and fear. Instead it was kind of like a dud firecracker on the fourth of July: You light it and there is such anticipation... you just can't wait... then it sputters and kind of makes this weak sparkle of light and fizzles out. Everything happened quickly all of a sudden. I didn't feel the intensity when Catlin and Adriel got together and when Dorian found out. Disappointing.

However, still worthy of three stars. I would give another of T.L. Mitchell's work a chance- perhaps I can get a more satisfying ending from another of her books.

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.

This was the first work that I read by this author & it did not disappoint. This novella was an absolutely fantastic read. T.L. Mitchell weaved an engaging story filled with suspense, intrigue, action, sensuality & paranormal elements. The story moved at a fast-pace; it wasn't too long or too short; just perfect. The characters were well-developed as well as the plot & story line. Although this is a novella, do not dismiss this as a bad read. T.L. Mitchell has a great talent for writing which is clearly demonstrated in The Nightman. Her style of writing is engaging & leaves the reader content & satisfied after the story is finished. Although novellas are harder to execute with well-developed characters & a decent plot, this author excelled at creating both in this story.

Overall, this was a great read & I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it! Highly recommend this novella.

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.

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.

It's now very often that one comes across a sweet love story containing vampires, a werewolf and sex. But this story succeeds. For a short story I am actually rather impressed by how well fleshed out the characters are. The ending left a smile on my face however the epilogue seemed as though it was added on just to increase the word count.

This book was very poorly edited. As short as it is, it really needed to be read with a critical eye to correct the errors.

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.
