Eighteen year old Caitlin Paine finds herself uprooted from her nice suburb and forced to attend a dangerous New York City high school when her Mom moves again. The one ray of light in her new surroundings is Jonah, a new classmate who takes an instant liking to her.
But before their romance can blossom, Caitlin suddenly finds herself changing. She is overcome by a superhuman strength, a sensitivity to light, a desire to feed--by feelings she does not understand. She seeks answers to what’s happening to her, and her cravings lead her to the wrong place at the wrong time. Her eyes are opened to a hidden world, right beneath her feet, thriving underground in New York City. She finds herself caught between two dangerous covens, right in the middle of a vampire war.
It is at this moment that Caitlin meets Caleb, a mysterious and powerful vampire who rescues her from the dark forces. He needs her to help lead him to the legendary lost artifact. And she needs him for answers, and for protection. Together, they will need to answer one crucial question: who was her real father?
But Caitlin finds herself caught between two men as something else arises between them: a forbidden love. A love between the races that will risk both of their lives, and will force them to decide whether to risk it all for each other…
Turned (book 1 in the vampire journals)
By Morgan Rice
4.5 out of 5 stars
I really like the cover for this book and am kind of sad that my copy didn’t come with one.
This is a really great Young adult novel (a really great read for adults as well). I like how she pulls you into the story and doesn’t let go till the end.
Even though it is another young adult vampire novel it is different enough that you don’t feel like you are reading the same thing again.
The story takes place in current day New York City. The main character Caitlin Paine is a good strong lead character.
She’s not whiney about everything that is happening to her at all (even though it’s a lot). She takes it in stride and keeps going so she can figure out what to do next.
The pace of the story was really great throughout. I couldn’t put it down J
The ending is a cliffhanger but in a good way. I couldn’t wait to start the next one and I am already enjoying it.
The only thing I felt that could be improved upon is the overall length. I felt like it was a little too short (probably just because it was so great).
I am glad to have the second one ready to go. I would definitely recommend this book but say that you should make sure you can get the second one J or already have it ready.
