Review: Covet (The Clann #2) by Melissa Darnell
Goodreads Synopsis: 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.
My Review: When I read Crave earlier this year, I fell in love Savannah and Tristan and hoped against hope that fate would find them together. I couldn't wait to continue their story, and was thrilled when Netgalley gave me the chance to read and review Covet.
Covet picks up right where Crave left off. Savannah has broken up with Tristan, in order to save his life. But she is too late to save the life of someone else dear to her. She is devestated by both the loss of Tristan, but also of the person that she couldn't save. To make matters worse, Savannah has to move in with her dad. She is becoming more and more vampire each day, and Savannah needs to learn to control the thirst.
Meanwhile, Savannah is holding firm to her no Tristan rule, though she doesn't give up hope when he says that he will find a way to be together. Tragedy strikes again and again as Clann members keep turning up dead, vampire style. Is there a rogue vampire on the loose or is this a plot to start a war? By the end of the book loved ones are lost on both sides.
Do Tristan and Savannah find a way to be together? You'll have to wait and find out. I will say that I was not expecting the ending at all and I am dying for the third book. Please, please, please Ms. Darnell release it soon!
The writing of both Crave and Covet are top notch. Savannah is a character you can love and relate to. I feel so bad for all of the things she has to face at such a young age. There are so many things she has to give up because of her nature, but she doesn't let her make her an ugly character. Anne, as the best friend, is also really likable, and Covet brings some issues for Anne (not at all what I thought they were). Tristan is as good, loyal and strong as ever. Every character comes out of Covet changed in some way. Find out how, by pre-ordering your copy at Amazon for it's September 25th release date.
