Author: Melissa Darnell
Publisher: Mira
ISBN: 9781848450967
Rating: A+

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.
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...

This book was actually really good. It's completely surprised with the storyline and I think is intact very unique. I think it's one of these books that only comes around every couple of years but when they do they are extremely good and I think this one could go very far! I have high hope for Crave. Now Crave is a fantastic book that will keep you enthralled and up to the dead of night, unable to put the book down. IT was thrilling tale of a Forbidden love that hasn't been done before and I loved it!

I have to admit, I had a tad of trouble getting into the book, but once I was in I could not get out The follows Savannah (but we'll call her Sav, cause it's a pain to type out! I don't how Darnell did it) and she is in school and experiences some changes only to find out she is a Dhampir, but one that shouldn't be able to exist. Half Vampire and Half Descendant (witch). Forbidden to love a boy, she falls in love with him... and so the battle begins. 

The plot is actually really well thought out an although the book sis a rather hefty 500 odd pages I didn't feel that long as it was exciting, fast paced and I seemed to whizz through it! The plot was obviously thoroughly outlined and the amount of thought that went into is clear as well as the effort. It was such a unique and beautiful plot and just so effortless to read. Gorgeous.

The writing was almost lyrical. It was just so perfect to read. There was the exact correct balance of description and dialogue that blended perfectly together t create this very real, vivid, image in your mind and it moved at just the right pace. The prose was perfect, thought. Not a fault I could see, and was a pleasure to read.

There wasn't too many character which was nice. I always hate a book where there is so many characters you can't keep track on them all. This was nice because you were introduced the characters easel and slowly so they acme a part of the book and became your friends. You felt very close tot hem and shared the same love hate emotions as them , for instance when Dylan pooped in the book you just wanted to rip him shreds, burn them on a barbecue and feed him to the ducks. (though you'd probably get arrested... especially for the ducks)

Overall is was gorgeous book and a fantastic read. The pleasure was all mine in the and I would recommend it a million times! yes yes yes! LOVE IT!
