These violent delights have violent ends And in their triumph die, like fire and powder, Which, as they kiss, consume. --William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet Tristan Coleman has survived the change from Clann magic user to vampire, much to Savannah Colbert's joy--and despair. By changing the Clann's golden boy and newly elected leader, even to save him from death, she has unleashed a fury of hatred and fear that they cannot escape. As the Clann and the vampire council go to war, Tristan and Sav face a new threat--a fracturing of the all-consuming bond they share. To fight for peace, they must forge a new trust and risk everything to take down their deadliest enemy, even as they must run for their lives. Soon they will learn that some bonds are stronger than love--and some battles cannot be won without sacrifice.

Our customer reviews

(Source: I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read-to-review basis. Thanks to Harlequin Teen and Netgalley.) This is book 3 in the 'The Clann' series, and picks up a couple of hours after the end of book 2 'Covet'. **Warning - some unavoidable spoilers for books 1 & 2 'Crave' and 'Covet'.** Tristan is now a vampire, his father has just been killed, his sister is pregnant, and it looks like a war is about to break out between the vampires and The Clann. Can Savanna help Tristan with his bloodlust? How long will it be before he regains his memories? Who will take over the Clann with Tristan turned? And can Savanna and Tristan stop the fighting before it's too late? This was an okay story, but again, I found it dragged, and I got a bit bored. Savanna and Tristan had obstacles to overcome in this one, which considering their biggest hurdle had just been smashed by Tristan becoming a vampire, was a bit annoying. This time Tristan and Savanna were arguing because Tristan wanted to kill the new Clann leader, whilst Savanna said that he shouldn't because he would have to live with that guilt for eternity. Thus, relations between these two were frosty at best, for almost the entire book, so if you were hoping for romance? Look somewhere else. The rest of the storyline in this book was okay, but so much of the book was just dull. The obvious storylines were Tristan dealing with becoming a vampire, and Savanna and co. dealing with the new head of the Clann, and unfortunately the rest of the storyline was taken up with people arguing, and travelling around in an RV. Not exactly riveting stuff unfortunately. There were a couple of surprises in this one, including one that I must have somehow missed at the end of book 2. None of these surprises were all that interesting though, and as the story dragged on and on, with people arguing over dirty cups, and dogs, and other inconsequential stuff, I did get bored. I wanted action! I wanted romance! I wanted something to keep me on the edge of my seat or get my heart beating, and instead I got drudgery. The ending of this one was okay, if a little too perfect. It was an ending though, no cliff-hanger here, and having finished all I can really say is that I'm glad to be finished. This series has gone seriously downhill in my opinion, and I have no intentions of ever revisiting this one again unfortunately. Overall; a disappointing and dull end to the series. 5 out of more
