I'm excited for the book but that cover is drop dead UGLY. Good thing i'm getting on my kindle so i don't have to look at it while i'm reading
OMG that is not the cover! I feel like some hidden cameramen should appear, and yell out, "You've been pranked!"

The Release Date ? = DEATH

Not mine though, let me get GMAIL started up. I'm considering asking the publishers if they'd like to be held responsible for my INSANITY.

Ok, well I found the first book quite confusing. The girl is half witch half vampire, and when she goes to school after she's told it just gets weirder from there. But I found it sweet when they had them both captured and she doesn't hurt him. However this new cover with no offence intended, is DISGUSTING! Please change it! The only reason I actually read the first book was because the cover attracted me and I'm one of those people who when you start a series you have to finish it.

Ok, not to be mean or anything... but i LOVED the first book. The cover was amazing too. But when I look at this cover, I'm like 'What?' Cuz you know what this reminds me of? the red queen in Alice in Wonderland. Seriously. I mean, I'm still going to read it... but... the cover is just really wierd.

Uuummm....loved Cover #1, but Cover #2 seems....uhhh....there's no way to say this nicely--drop dead UGLY. Hopefully the book is WAY better than the cover!

This cover scares me
*lower lip trembles*

But the Australian cover will be different (and hopefully beautiful). HAHAHAAAAAAAAA

Savannah makes a promise to the vampire council that she'll stopping dating Tristan. And back in Jacksonville, she makes the same promise to the clann, against the wishes and pleas of Tristan. She knows it's the right thing to do. She could kill him with a kiss, or the bloodlust could take over. It's harder for vampires to resist the descendants magic blood than it is a regular human, even for older vampires.

Savannah's vampire side is taking over and becoming stronger than the witch in her. Her

I just can't picture out Savannah looking like this girl in the cover. Pls don't disillusion me... I'm so looking forward to reading this book.
I could not put this book down... WOW!!! So much, *shakes head* way to much happens in here...

I was so excited to get Covet on Netgalley because book 1, Crave, was FANTASTIC!! I couldn't wait to see what was going to happen with Savannah and Tristan and when I opened up Covet, we picked up right where Crave ended...that dooming decision made by Savannah.

**3 1/2 stars...rounding up because of the laughs the book solicited from me**

This cover had me worried. The cover for the first book wasn't great, but at least it didn't scare me away from reading the book. I know I shouldn't judge a book by its cover. I know that. But other than the forest in the background, I couldn't see what this cover had to do with the story. Plus, Savannah has red hair. I know the girl is in black and white and so her hair color is ambiguous, but it would have been more
Review originally posted on my blog: A Book Obsession..

To avoid a war between the Vampires and the Clann, Savannah broke things off with Tristan. Being separated from is the worst kind of torture, especially as she cannot seem to escape his constant presence and reminder of what she cannot have. Things are any easier outside of her romantic life either as she struggles with the complications of her vampiric side taking over, and the Clann's determination to ruin her life. Meanwhile, Tristan is b
The BookWhisperer
Savannah and Tristian’s story was left on a cliff hanger in Crave. With what appears to be a dead end we begin this still with on a sliver of hope that our beloved characters can find a way out of the this mess. With the Vampire Council and The Clann both aware of the recent developments between Savannah and Tristian it seems almost impossible that a future can exist. With their love on the line they are tested to the limits in this second installment, and I was anxious to get started. Unlike bo ...more

The 1st book had to be one of the best books I have ever read! Can't wait to read this. I think the cover is beautiful btw. Everyone should just get over it.

For a long while, this book just went through and described the jealousy and hurt feelings of Tristan and Savannah because they can't be together. But, of course the book in the end turned up a lot of action and reveals mischeivious traitors.

Both Tristan and Savannah lose people they love. Heart ache shared on both sides, the vamps and the

This and other reviews on Book Thoughts by Marielle!

Covet, the second book in The Clann series was even better than the first one. And I liked the first one a lot, so that’s saying something.

I’m going to use the Goodreads summary for this one because I think that it does a really good job of describing it:

“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 abilit
The cover isn't really that amazing (sorry I really don't like it) but don't let it fool you, this next installment in the series is as intense if not much more than the first one. Presenting The Clann #2 Covet by Melissa Darnell.

Argh....I can't wait for the third book in this series!!!!! I really enjoyed Crave but it was nowhere near as good as Covet. This book was awesome sauce.

The Romeo and Juliet thing that Tristan and Savannah have is so heart wrenching. I spent the whole book trying to figure out along with them how they could possibly be together. There love is so deep and the feelings are full of tension. Sparks fly whenever they are around each other. It is so romantic.

I loved the plot. There was so many plot l
Savannah (Books With Bite)
Alright so here we go! Ms. Darnell certainly delivers an awesome story to the reader. Chapter after chapter, I dove myself deeper into the story never wanting to step out.

What I loved most about this book is the characters. Much has happen since and Savannah is learning thing the hard way. She is stronger and much wiser in this book. She knows what she needs to do despite how is affects her feelings. Plus, with her growing vampire side, Savannah is also growing her culture. She is learning more

Just received this from the publisher and author, through Thank You, review to come shortly!


Let us talk about the sophomore slump most book series get into. Usually most people anticipate the second, third, fourth, etc. book of a series, but then are completely disappointed because nothing useful happened and it was more like filler. Well, that was not an issue for Darnell's series The Clann.

In the second book of this series, Covet, Savannah and Tristan are right were we le

This was a great book. There was lots of adventure and changes and truth telling moments! A lot of drama and struggling as well.

I loved it! The only thing that bothered me was not seeing Savannah and Tristan as a couple. Him "dating" Brittany? Seriously, dude, it was obviously you were leading her on!

Love Ron and Anne! Such great friends! She's reckless and stubborn and he's sweet and caring. Lovables! I was shocked by Ron's secret. Didn't see that one coming.

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 ...more
I thought the romance between Tristan and Savannah was too cliche and too 'lovey dovey' for my liking. At first, their 'love/hate' relationship was interesting and I was looking forward as to how they would develop their feelings towards each other but throughout the book, I grew bored of their relationship and their actions. The plot was interesting, but there wasn't an 'oomph' to it. To be honest, I was more interested in Ron and Anne's relationship than Tristan and Savannah's, due to the fact ...more
Despite a screaming painful error (black cats which Savannah claims never to have heard of before book 2 but on pg 365 of book one mentions not once but twice) I was entranced by this book. I’m not sure what that says about me. My middle school students would LOOOVE this series. And my deepest thanks to the author (who I do not know) for minimizing the profanity, keeping it sensual enough to keep my young romantics captivated without making it too sexual for them. I’m certain that older YA paran ...more
Book Review originally published here:

I didn’t really like Crave, the first book in the series. I thought most of it was hilariously stupid, but I decided to give Savannah another shot in this sequel. The book isn’t much better than the first one though. The pacing was agonizingly slow, Savannah is ridiculous, whiny, and pathetic. Tristan isn’t much better. Not recommended.
Savannah was forced to break up with Tristan, but only to protect him. her being a half-vampire, she was able to absorb energy from Tristan from a kiss, enough to kill him. now that her vampire abilities were slowly surfacing and she started feeling the bloodlust, Savannah struggled to keep her distance, while Tristan continuously tried to get her back. in the meanwhile, the Clann descendants were killed one by one, drained and leaving behind vampires bite marks on their neck. they were eager to ...more
