Picking up where the first book in the series leaves off, Melissa Darnell continues Savannah and Tristan's story in Covet. Savannah is a damphir, the offspring of a vampire and a human, the only catch being the human in this relationship, Savannah's mother, is a witch. This makes Savannah the first of her kind. The Clann, or the community of witches, wants nothing to do with her. Tristan, the boy she loves, is from the Clann, and his father is the head of the Clann. They have forbidden Tristan from seeing Savannah, and the Vampire Council has done the same. In order to keep Tristan safe, Savannah agrees to this, but the love between Tristan and Savannah is stronger than the Clann and stronger than the Council. With Savannah's vampire side taking control, her father steps in to help her with this transition. Another council member pops in from time-to-time also, and has taken up residence nearby. Determined to protect Tristan, knowing that even her kiss could kill him, Savannah desperately endures her heartache in order to save him. She also begins to delve into her witch heritage and magic, something which she has also been forbidden to do. Mysterious and tragic things begin to happen, accidents, deaths, and these things threaten the treaty between the Clann and the Vampire Council. Friendships are tested, new friendships are formed, people are not who they seem, and conspiracy and war threaten to erupt. Can it be stopped before it is to late, can love truly conquer all, and who will have to suffer or even die in the process?

I really enjoyed this novel. Savannah and Tristan's love story is tragic yet endearing. Savannah is willing to give Tristan up, because she loves him and wants to save him. She believes following the demands of the Clann and the Council is the only way to do it, while inside she is dying. Tristan is determined to find away, but keeps coming up against a brick wall. After a tragic accident, he finds friendship with someone else, but this someone else thinks it is more, and it crushes Savannah's heart. Savannah also begins to spend more time with a friend, but Tristan assumes it is more than friendship, and he is extremely jealous. It seems these two just can't get a break. I enjoyed seeing Savannah's character develop in this book and seeing her stand up for herself, even when it seemed the whole Clann (except for Tristan) wanted her dead. I liked Tristan, but he was kind of naive about his friendship with Beth, and he was kind of a jerk at times to Savannah, but he truly does love her, and eventually comes to his senses. We are also introduced to the Keepers in this series, which was interesting. I enjoyed getting to know Savannah's father more, as well as some of her friends. The conspiracy really begins to thicken and things get intense toward the ending, resulting in something no one sees coming. Savannah has been the cause, not because of anything she has done, simply because of what she is, of so much dissension and conflict, but can she also be the one who brings forth the truth to save them all? Forced to make a choice that will change things forever, Savannah must chose between life and death, and losing the love of her life forever. I have really enjoyed this series. If you love vampires and witches, this book is a fresh and entertaining read that is well worth checking out.

Well written but no love for the cover.

I have to say that I am not a fan of this cover, at all. The girl still looks to have blond hair (Savannah's is red) and something about her expression looks "off".

I have to say that I am not a fan of this cover, at all. The girl still looks to have blond hair (Savannah's is red) and something about her expression looks "off".

Covet picks up right where Crave leaves off with the majority of the book spent dealing with the time Tristan and Savannah are apart in her effort to protect him as she continues to change. I found myself skimming a good portion because it felt like the whole "break-up" was being dragged out just a little too long. New characters are introduced as well as another "species" for Savannah and her fellow vampires to contend with. (This particular addition sounded very familiar...in a Jacob Black kind of way but with purring instead of howling.)

The book didn't really pick up for me until the last few chapters and then it felt chaotic and rushed. The ending itself also felt somewhat predictable but the book does include an excerpt from book 3, Consume which sets up as a nice cliff hanger of sorts.

*Even though I'm not a huge fan of this series, I do think it's well written and I enjoy the dual POV. Savannah didn't seem as whiny in this sequel but Tristan is still the most enjoyable character for me and I may just read the third book to see what becomes of him.
