Covet by Melissa Darnell

Dangerous to be together. Painful to be apart.

Savannah Colbert knows she broke up with Tristan Coleman for the right reasons. Most of all, to keep from killing him with her new vampire abilities. But try telling her heart. Now, lost in a sea of hostile Clann faces, Sav tries to come to terms with what she's becoming and what that means for her future. And that someone is doing their best to bully her into making a terrible mistake.

Tristan can't believe Sav won't even talk to him. If being apart is her decision, fine. Just don't expect him to honor it. But even as he prepares to fight for the girl he loves, forces beyond their control take them both in directions neither could have foreseen or prepared for.

A reckoning is coming…and not everyone will survive.

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.

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 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.

I have been waiting so impatiently for Covet, the sequel to Crave. Now I'm impatiently waiting for Consume, the third novel in The Clann series. Melissa Darnell has written one of the most fantastic Young Adult paranormal series. This storyline with the vampire council and witch clann has wicked twist to it and Sav and Tristan’s forbidden romance is always my favor kind of romance. It's just a really great YA and I love this series. I think what I loved the most about this second book (well, the romance, of course,), was the blow-my-mind ending. I was wondering if Darnell would do something like this in this second book, and when she did, I was saying...Yes, yes, YES! Now I'm so ready for Tristan in Consume. The title alone says an awesome finale to me. Sav and Tristan go through a lot of painful hurt with their romance and family in Covet. Where the first book was hilarious with wonderful humor, this second novel pulled at my heart stings for these two teenagers trying to be together. Tristan’s sister Emily has a little surprise for the vampire council and the with witch clan. Melissa Darnell didn't fail me with this sequel, but with Covet fantastic ending I will be on pins and needles waiting for Sav and Tristan in Consume. I recommend Covet as a super awesome YA paranormal read!

I cannot contain my excitement right now!! I have been impatiently waiting for this book since December of last year. All I want to do is cry since I have to wait another year for the next book to come out. I absolutely fell in love with the first novel and this one was just as good, if not better. It exceeded my expectations and then some. Savannah makes a promise to the vampire council that she will no longer date Tristan. There has been a treaty between the vampires and the Clann for generations. With Savannah being a dhampir, both sides are afraid that she may give in to her bloodlust and hurt Tristan. Something terrible happens and Savannah is determined to stay away from Tristan to protect the people she loves. Savannah also has to struggle with her new vamp senses. There's no way for me to not spoil this story so I will leave my synopsis there. I really hope things will eventually work out for Tristan and Sav. Their attraction is undeniable and Tristan will fight the Clann and vampires to get her back. Sigh....I love Tristan!! I want to scream at the top of my lungs!!! I don't think words can describe how much I love this series. The author creates this amazing world of the Clann and vampires. There is a new species introduced in the book but my lips will remain sealed. The first book was pretty heavy on the romance but this was more of the paranormal. Don't get me wrong, there are still some scenes that were steam worthy. I was not expecting the outcome in the last chapter. I'm excited, sad and intrigued at the same time. There's also a sneak peak(more of a tease if you ask me) at the end of Covet for the next book, Consume. How can you do this to me?!? I need more of a tease than that. Can I get a blurb or something? This is killing me!! I'm very close to begging for it.

This book is about a girl who is in love with a witch and she promises not to see him because its forbidden. This book is slightly cheesy but the ending is unexpected. It's a good read

The Clann series keeps getting better and better! Crave was a great introduction to Savannah's world, but Covet gives it that "oomph" that the plot desperately needed. We pick up exactly where Crave left off and the book begins the first of many star-crossed lover's scenarios between Sav and Tristan. This would be one of the few complaints I have about the book. I know there needs to be some angst in it, but it could be dropped down a notch or so. It becomes very predictable and at times incredibly annoying. The characters are what made me get attached to the series, but this grinds on that to a degree. On the positive side of the spectrum, the plot got the guts it needed from the beginning. Once it starts to roll, it doesn't really slow down until the end of the book. This is definite improvement over the first book. It felt more in-depth and connected with the characters and really sucked me into what they were feeling and experiencing. The culminating events really threw me for a loop because of this and it was amazing. I laughed, and cried especially, along with Sav and the gang. I still feel that Sav needs to be able to catch a break a little more often, but her luck makes for a great ride for the reader. I loved that I got to learn a lot more history and background information on the organizations and Sav's family. Although, sometimes it hurt to know the back story and then experience the events Sav goes through. It is one of the many great aspects of the book. I can't wait to see where Darnell runs with this after Covet's ending... :)
