Picking up where the first book in the series leaves off, Meliss
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.

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.
