'Crave' is a beautifully written love story about the forbidden romance between the two main characters, Savannah Colbert and Tristan Coleman. With the book flowing seamlessly from one view point to other, I particularly liked how the story was told form their dual perspectives, as it made it easy to relate to and understand the motivations behind both characters choices.
Also while I think that this book gets off to a slow beginning, it really picks up after the first 100 or so pages, when readers will suddenly find themselves totally immersed in a world of magic, betrayal and heartache. Yet while 'Crave' is listed as paranormal romance, it is the romance that really dominates this story. However, Melissa Darnell has also created a unique plot line which is full of vampire and witch mythology, all of which adds supernatural zest to the story.
As for the characters, Savannah was very interesting. Coming to terms with her half-witch, half-vampire heritage, she was usually the one who caused most of the trouble and problems within the story. While Tristan was simply the very nice, swoon-worthy, guy with a secret whom you can't help but like - But the romance between them was very sweet and genuine. I'm really interested to see how their relationship develops in the next book. However I felt that some of the secondary characters needed a little more depth and fleshing out, but generally they all played their parts well.
Yet all in all though I really enjoyed 'Crave'. The last few chapters are particularly gripping and it ends on an intriguing note. I'm looking forward to reading the next in the trilogy so fans of YA Paranormal Romance, this is book is definitely one for you to check out.
