Summary from Goodreads
I will protect you until the day I die … forever!
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.
This is Nate’s story …

No Such Thing as Immortality is a brilliant debut from Sarah Tranter that I thoroughly enjoyed! I really like Sarah's easy way of writing and I very easily fell into it.
The storyline is full of action, emotion, romance, intrigue and is peppered with mystery to keep you guessing. I was very interested and I think there is definitely more to this than just your typical vampire tale. Otherworldly beings are introduced and a lot of twists and turns will keep you fully engaged right up until the very end.
The best thing about this book has to be the characters, mainly Nathanial Grey *swoon*, he has this strong, dark, silent and moody thing going on which makes him quite moreish indeed! I think he is a bit of a mix between Edward Cullen and Mr Darcey if I'm honest and really that's not a bad thing. I especially like how he's so old fashioned, in his speech and even his way of thinking.
Nathanial Grey is a vampire who hasn't shown any sort of human emotion for more than 200 years. But his life changes dramatically when he crashes into Rowan Locke, and is overwhelmed with all of her feelings - they are anything but calm.
Nate becomes so drawn to Rowan that he can't seem to keep away, but as he gets to know her he realises there is someone or something out to do her harm. He knows he must unravel the mystery surrounding Rowan and her family and protect her at all costs....
I was really pleased with how things left off and I am overjoyed that there is going to be another book. I actually can't wait to see what's going to happen next and also to get to know the mysterious Nate a little bit better!
