Crave The Clann 1 Author: Crave is one of those books that left me with mixed feelings and the constant urge to hit my keyboard with my head. The latter is not advised by the way, not because it ny hurt your head, but mostly because your keyboard cgave probably not appreciate it. Especially not if you want to play WoW later on, write a review or even write some assignments for university. The reason why I have mixed feelings about this book is because I liked two things about it: I know bt sometimes the greatest stories are hidden behind the ugliest covers imaginable, but still I get excited when I see a gorgeous cover.
However, the opposite is true equally as many times as well, and sometimes you can find one of the most boring and unoriginal stories behind the most gorgeous cover imaginable. Savannah holds a lot of resemblences to our dearly hated and well-known Bella Swan. Not appearance-wise, but personality-wise.
Savannah Colbert, main character of Craveis a Bella Swan in disguise. Why she has friends to begin with is a giant mystery to me. She has no spine, no backbone, no real hobbies besides going to school, nothing at all that makes her anything more than a standard cardboard figure.
I care about who people are, not what they look like. Seriously, Tristan, you have to grow a pair. He supposedly has feelings for Savannah and has had these for a while now, but because the Clann told him to stay away from her, he happily obliges. Yeh…That would really make me swoon all over him. Although this is the guy who she was best friends with until fourth grade and who turned his back on her from one day on ddarnell other without even giving an explenation, she continues to fantasize about him and convince the readers every once in a while of how hot he actually is.
Suddenly Savannah meets a guy named Greg who is supposedly the best boyfriend material anyone could wish for. By now every person in their right mind would have jumped on the Greg bandwagon in a heartbeat. By now, I felt like throwing my entire laptop at that girl and knocking some sense into her. Remember how I told you that Savannah is supposedly a vampire? In any other book that would mean insane superpowers, the ability to save the world from the apocalypse or the destiny to fulfill some ancient prophecy.
Hahaha, but not in Crave!
You grow boobs overnight! Yes, you can go from a size A to a size C in just one night! And you know what happens when these boobs just miraculously appear? You get male attention, all of the sudden. Tons and tons of horny teenage boys come knocking on your door because HEY you got boobs now! Yes, I used a lot of sarcasm in the previous paragraph, but you have to admit how stupid it sounds. If the only thing I initially got from being a hybrid was to grow two boobsizes overnight, I would be anything but amused.
It gets worse though. Savannah can now enchant boys just by looking at them and turn them into drooling stalkerzombies.
The Clann Series
Been there, done that, it never works out well, not even in fiction. I would love it if a sarnell could get his hands on Tristan and Savannah and finally knock some sense into them.
The pace was fast through-out the entire novel, but sometimes it dropped significantly and seemed nelissa drag on a bit. Overall the premise of this book was intriguing, and it could have been a real success-story had the characters been less like cardboard figures, had their romance been more believable and if the book had a more promising plotline overall.
It started out promising enough but near the end when nothing major or apocalyptic-like had happened, I sort of felt dissapointed. I always mrlissa it when something else is going on in the background, like some epic battle with the entire world at stake or something along those lines, but melissw there was…well, nothing. I expected a lot more from Crave and in all honesty it delivered very little.
Crave (The Clann, #1) by Melissa Darnell
The only characters worth mentioning where Anne now she has some personality! Please make these two the main characters of the next book in the series, and I might believe in The Clann series again. However, a lot of people on Goodreads rated it highly, so it must have something that works for some people. I do believe the author has a lot of potential, and I wish her good luck with her future works.
