Covet by Melissa Darnell

Release Date: Out now!

Publisher: HarlequinTeen AU

Pages: 473pgs

The Story

Savannah Colbert knows she broke up Tristan Coleman for the right reasons. Most of all, to keep from killing him with her new vampire abilities. But try telling her heart that . . .

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 honour it. But even as he prepares to fight for the girl he loves, forces beyond their control take them in directions neither could have foreseen, prepared for . . . or possibly withstand.

A reckoning is coming . . . and not everyone will survive.

The Review

A big thanks to HarlequinTeen Australia for sending me a review copy of this book!

Melissa Darnell's most anticipated sequel to Crave is finally here! COVET returns with even more shocking twists, more hidden dangers, more forbidden romances, and most of all it contains even more awesome witch and vampire action which needless to say is all you can really ask for in a great YA paranormal trilogy!

From last year I had thoroughly enjoyed - no wait, LOVEDCrave and I was seriously DYING to get my hands on the sequel just because after everything that happened in the first book . . . I just needed to KNOW what was going to happen next. While this sequel was not my favourite of the series by far, but I'm still very impressed by the sequel and what occurred within it. Now for the majority of COVET it's all about the main character, Savannah, and how she's continuing to find herself, while also resisting against her own powerful abilities and her true hidden vampiric nature. But when she is also trying to push away her feelings and love for a mortal human boy (and someone whom happens to be her witchy ex-boyfriend) Tristan, she needs to decide whether to allow herself to give into her true nature or do something of the unforgivable . . . turning Tristan into what she is in order to keep them together forever . . .  even if it means going up against both of their families beliefs.

For a couple who has gone through so much to be together, I still fell back in love with the dual perspective told by two of our main characters, Savannah and Tristan. While they were currently 'broken-up' for the majority of this sequel, but I still managed to hold some faith for them both and I'm glad I did because I really love these two kids as main characters and the heritage that they share separately in their own little worlds of witches and vampires . . . it's so very interesting and unique with that part. Now unlike in the first book, I felt in this sequel Sav's and Tristan's relationship had much more strength in it and it gained some ground in making us readers believe in their love and what they were actually fighting for (you know to be together), which was really great to see in this sequel and I hope those who may not have liked the first book have their minds changed when it comes to this sequel because this book was pretty awesome!

Overall and without giving away spoilers, COVET is great follow up to the Clann series and considering the part-predictable and part-shocking cliffhanger we receive at the very end, I'm now really, really looking forward to reading the third and final installment of the series. I'm sure it will be a very interesting and an exciting installment!

The Rating
4 1/2 / 5 stars


  1. How is it that I never even considered reading this series? Well, that's a major failure on my part. It sounds absolutely thrilling! I'm especually glad that the romance progressed in a satisfactory, but above all believable way.
    Excellent review!

    1. Thank you! This series is definitely worth checking out.

  2. It sounds good, but it also sounds like Twilight. I'm indifferent on this book. It sounds okay.
