Crave (The Clann #1) by Melissa Darnell


In this captivating novel, Darnell tells a beautiful love story about  mystery, forbidden love, betrayal and magic. This story really captivates into another world. With different perspectives from Tristan and Savannah the reader is able to understand both emotions and from different views.

Savannah and Tristan's love story was really developed. It took them a while to be together (half-way) but we got to see different sides to them when they were together. Tristan is a really gentlemen who really, really cares about Savannah. He doesn't even care about the rules, just as long as he as Savannah.  His love for her is Infinity, and he will always love her, even if both of their families try to prevent it. The Clann and the Vampires were at war with each other a long time ago, but if any of the followers cross the line or go near Savannah, it will start another war.

I liked this book, it did remind me of Romeo and Juliet, their love didnt go love at first sight, it developed over months. The connection between them was electric. The story was told from both Savannah and Tristan's views which was good because you get to see what the other person was feeling at the moment.
Near the end, it really picks up fast with the interactions with her father heritage and The Clann.With the prospect of War in the future because of how rare Savannah is really makes the story even better.

With both supernatural and romance, Crave was a great read!! There was some moments that you are rooting for Savannah & Tristan to be together even if their families don't but they are meant to be together!

Crave is book #1 in the Clann series when it comes out October 18th  and 
Thank you to Harlequin Teen and Netgalley for providing the book. 

From Goodreads.
Savannah Colbert has been shunned all her life by the kids of the Clann. And when she undergoes some drastic changes after a strange illness, Savannah learns secrets about the group and about herself—dangerous secrets. For the Clann are powerful magic users, and Savannah herself is half Clann and half vampire—a forbidden, unheard of combination. Falling for Clann golden boy Tristan Coleman isn't just a bad idea—it could be deadly if anyone finds out. But her attraction to Tristan—and his to her—isn't something either of them can resist for long.


  1. I have been wanting to read this, just for the cover alone.. it's gorgeous. I'm a sucker for any kind of romance, so from your review, I can tell i'll probably like it alot! :)

  2. Oh really this was good? I saw it on netgalley but I didn't think it would be that great. The cover is definitely beautiful though. I might check it out.

  3. Crave is such a refreshing, intoxicating paranormal read. The mix of paranormal lore and the rich mythology Melissa created to bring her story to life made it hard for me to put this story down. The story line itself is fast paced, engaging, and includes some surprising twists that were both predictable ones I didn't see coming. It's a story with a well written forbidden love story I enjoyed getting lost in and in-depth characters I enjoyed meeting. I'm really looking forward to reading the next book in this series!
