Turned by Morgan Rice (REVIEW)

Turned (Book #1 in the Vampire Journals) 

Author: Morgan Rice
Category: YA Paranormal/Supernatural (Vampires)
Suitable for: Teens and up
My Rating: 4 Stars
Format Read for Review: Kindle
Pages: 196

Description: A teen aged girl discovers she is changing into something she never before thought was real. She becomes part of a world she never knew existed where she is hunted and has few allies.

In Short: This book is an interesting take on young adult vampire books and a fun little teaser into the series. The story in this book is very short and without a solid conclusion. To find out what happens to Caitlin you will have to read the rest of the series. I see a lot of potential for this story to shape up into something really unique in the rest of the series and I plan to read this entire series of books. 

Pros: Fast paced and loaded with action. This book is well written and immerses you into the story easily. This book has just the right amount of darkness to still be suitable for teenagers without being boring and cheesy to adults. The characters are believable and the main character is likable so you find yourself rooting for her as she struggles to stay alive and learn her destiny.

Cons: This book is very short. It’s really more of a half story (which isn't bad if you get the free kindle version). In this book you get to see only the start of Caitlin’s story. Because I feel this isn't a complete book I knocked off 1 star. If I had not gotten the free kindle edition and instead paid for a paperback version I would give this book about 3 stars.
