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.

My Review
I received an e-copy of this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
I read book 1 (Crave) a couple of months ago and absolutely loved it, I was desperate for book 2 and when I saw it on Netgalley I had to put a request on it. I never imagined I would get a copy so when I did there was definitely screaming involved - I was so excited. 
This series is so well written and totally addictive.
This book kicks off straight after the ending in book 1. Tristan and Savannah are no longer a couple but they both still love each other, they hae to fight to stay apart and try to move on - some things just can't be, sometimes you have to face defeat, but matters of the heart are never that easy. Add in rival clans, Vampires, witches, descendants, Keepers and magic of all sorts it gets really tricky!
I got this book in Adobe Digital Editions which I couldn't get to work on my ipad which meant I had to read this on my laptop, as I am at work all day and out most evenings until 9.30, this meant my only reading time was quite late for this book, and it gave me a couple of late nights. I sat down the first night at 11:30 planning to read for half an hour and before you knew it, it was 1:30 in the morning and my eyes were starting to droop. But I couldn't pull myself away before then! I hadn't even noticed how long I had been there. I was completely and utterly lost in the book, once more walking alongside Savannah and Tristan.
There are quite a few sub-plots in this story too, but it doesn't get confusing, it just helps to keep the pace up and you know that somehow it will all come together in the end. Everything in this book is relevant, every detail has a purpose and leads you further into the story.
Savannah is definitely getting more kick ass and having to face up to her responsibilities and even face her Vampire powers, she has a few moments of sulkiness and the odd bit of whining, but mostly she is fierce and facing up to her troubles.
Tristan is still a little bit arrogant in places but you can tell how much he loves for Savannah and what he would do for her. 
The characters all really grow up and have to face much more in this book and I am so excited for the next installment. 
This series really is a treasure, excellent writing, brilliant characters, gripping storyline and beautiful covers! Definitely worth reading!
