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 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.”
In Crave, I really loved Savannah and Tristan because they seemed so genuine and they were both really funny. I also thought that their relationship was adorable. But in this book, I developed love for other characters, as well. Like Savannah’s dad. He was totally awesome. He liked fashion and he always wanted to buy Savannah new things (even though she declined most of the time. What was wrong with her?). But also, he still loved Savannah’s mom even though they were divorced and couldn’t be together (he was a vamp, she was a witch -> it didn’t really work out too well…) and he still wanted to do nice things for her (even if he had to trick her into doing them). Another person I loved in this book was Ron Abernathy. He may have a nerdy name, but he was anything but a dork. He was hilarious, always cracking jokes and, well, being funny. He was AMAZING.
This second book was a lot different than Crave because a whole new aspect is introduced: Savannah learns how to do magic. I liked Savannah even more after she learned magic because she actually stood up for herself and she could go toe-to-toe with any of the Clann members and win. It’s also different because a whole new species is introduced (they’re awesome).
This book certainly did not have the notorious sequel syndrome; this second book was even better than the first! The plot always kept me guessing and I was super surprised at some of the events. I was also slightly disturbed at one part, which I was surprised about; I didn’t think these books were so hardcore. Also, Covet was really funny. I was laughing all the way through the book and I couldn’t stop at some parts.
There was one thing that really stood out to me: the ending. Oh. My. Gosh. The last words of the book were, “What have I done?” I mean, how intense is that? PRETTY FREAKING INTENSE, PEOPLE. I’m practically begging for more right now. The third installment, Consume, is expected to come out some time in 2013 and I can’t wait for that day!
