Covet (The Clann #2) by Melissa Darnell


Covet (The Clann, #2)
Blurb (from Goodreads):
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.


Covet by Melissa Darnell

My rating: 2.5 of 5 stars


Covet (The Clann, #2)(Source: Purchased on kindle from Amazon.co.uk.)
This is the second book in the ‘The Clann’ series, and kicks off where book 1 ‘Crave’ left off.
**Warning – some unavoidable spoilers for book 1 ‘Crave’.**
Savanna has just promised the vampires that she will stop seeing Tristan, and is now travelling back home with him and her father, when she learns that her grandmother has been kidnapped by the Clann.
Can Savanna rescue her grandmother? Can she stay away from Tristan? And does anything actually happen in this book?


This book was just so slow it drove me nuts. It felt like 473 pages of nothing.

Savanna and Tristan spent 99% of this book apart, mainly because of Savanna’s promise that she wouldn’t be with him because of the risk to him, both from bloodlust and her succubus nature.
This made for a pretty boring book to be honest. There were some sweet moments where Tristan tried to convince Savanna how much he cared for her, and how much he wanted to be with her, but otherwise we got very little interaction between them.

The storyline in this book was just barely there! We had an initial surprise death, a lot of moaning about how they couldn’t be together, Savanna’s dad teaching her that she needed to drink blood now, then another surprise death, a little twist, and that was it. I mean out of 473 pages, it easily felt like 400 weren’t necessary! I just felt like nothing was happening, it dragged on and on and on, and still nothing was happening! I mean really! It wasn’t even that the story was bad, it was just non-existent! Talk about a case of second book syndrome. I seriously hope that the last book in the series actually has some action or I may fall into a boredom coma.

The last little twist at the end was okay, but I was so bored by that point that I was just glad that it was over. It also seemed like a really easy way for the author to make something happen, that might not have happened quite so easily had the circumstances not forced it to happen.
Overall; a really disappointing and boring second book in the series. What a waste of £5!
5 out of 10.

  1. "And does anything actually happen in this book?" I had to LOL at that one! I tried reading this and I just couldn't get through it. It's so BORING! Thank you for the review - now I know I didn't miss anything by not finishing it.

    1. If you want to know the one semi-interesting thing that happened in this, the blurb of the third one tells you all you need to know!

  2. OMG, I feel so bad for you, you can't get away from slow books.

  3. Perhaps I'm a bit biased because this is a vamp book and I'm not really into those. But even a non-fan can realize when a book is brilliant and when it's just average. In my opinion, Covet was a pretty average book.
