Crave by Melissa Darnell

Crave (The Clann #1)Title: Crave
Author: Melissa Darnell
Publisher: HarlequinTeen
Release: October 25, 2011
Pages: 416
Series: The Clann #1
Synopsis:
Savannah Colbert has never known why she's so hated by the kids of the Clann. Nor can she deny her instinct to get close to Clann golden boy Tristan Coleman. Especially when she recovers from a strange illness and the attraction becomes nearly irresistible. It's as if he's a magnet, pulling her gaze, her thoughts, even her dreams. Her family has warned her to have nothing to do with him, or any members of the Clann. But when Tristan is suddenly everywhere she goes, Savannah fears she's destined to fail.
Review:
Often, I pick books because the cover calls to me and the summary sounds good. This book has a nice cover, but the summary was very vague, not really telling the reader anything about the book. I decided to go for it, but looking back, I really with I hadn't. It simply fell far too short of my non existent expectations. My largest problem with this book was the cheesy-ness of the witches and vampires. I found them to be too stereotypical and too flat. On the character side of things, I didn't really like Savanah or Tristan, Savanah was too self centered and dramatic for my taste and Tristan was too hot and cold in his emotions. The writing was OK, but I felt it was fairly bland and not very memorable, but it did convey all the necessary information for the book. The story was too slow for me and not very exciting pretty much all the way through, not much action occurred. Overall, I give this book a 1.5/5 for being a pretty big disappointment, in my opinion.



For years, Tristan has been forbidden to even speak to Savannah Colbert. Then Savannah disappears from school for a week and comes back…different, and suddenly he can't stay away. Boys seem intoxicated just from looking at her. His own family becomes stricter than ever. And Tristan has to fight his own urge to protect her, to be near her no matter the consequences….
