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.
Things change drastically for Savannah and worse than in book one. Just when she think things will be okay for her Tristan and they can finally be together, something else happens and she has to break up with him just to keep him safe and keep the peace. It broke my heart and I wanted to seriously scream. Darnell does such a great job putting emotions down on paper that you feel it’s happening to you. I felt like I was Savannah and making the hardest decision of my life.
Tristan, poor Tristan. I couldn’t help but feel sorry for him throughout the whole book. He got the short end of everything. Actually both characters just had one thing after another happening to them. They just couldn’t catch a break. Their emotions about everything just tore me up, but some were good and some were bad. When I say you can feel everything they feel, I am not kidding. It was practically coming off the pages. And all the magic happening was awesome! This is one of the things I really enjoy about this series. The take on magic and vampires that Darnell conveys; it’s refreshing and fun to read.
Needless to say, Darnell is on auto buy for me and this series is definitely one of my favorites. I have a lot of books that are my favorite, but when asked for recommendations, this series is one that always comes to mind. I always push the first book, and I am pushing it now. If you haven’t started this series, please do. It’s fantastic and creative in every way!
I will say though that at one point the story did slow down, but it was necessary in order for readers to fully understand Savannah’s new life. She learns a lot about herself and her father. However, I do think some parts could’ve been shortened. Once the story picks back up though, it’s unputdownable! Oh, I have to add that the ending shattered me. I still don't know if I am happy about it, or just sad. I am not upset and do like where the story went, but O-M-G! Love it! When I was done reading Covet, I was searching on GoodReads for others to discuss it with because I wanted to just let it all out. Such a great book! Read it!
