Description

"TURNED is a book to rival TWILIGHT and VAMPIRE DIARIES, and one that will have you wanting to keep reading until the very last page! If you are into adventure, love and vampires this book is the one for you!"
--Vampirebooksite.com

The #1 Bestseller!

TURNED is book #1 in the #1 Bestselling series THE VAMPIRE JOURNALS, which includes eleven books (and counting).

In TURNED (Book #1 of the Vampire Journals), 18 year old Caitlin Paine finds herself uprooted from her nice suburb and forced to attend a dangerous New York City high school when her Mom moves again. The one ray of light in her new surroundings is Jonah, a new classmate who takes an instant liking to her.

But before their romance can blossom, Caitlin suddenly finds herself changing. She is overcome by a superhuman strength, a sensitivity to light, a desire to feed--by feelings she does not understand. She seeks answers to what’s happening to her, and her cravings lead her to the wrong place at the wrong time. Her eyes are opened to a hidden world, right beneath her feet, thriving underground in New York City. She finds herself caught between two dangerous covens, right in the middle of a vampire war.

It is at this moment that Caitlin meets Caleb, a mysterious and powerful vampire who rescues her from the dark forces. He needs her to help lead him to the legendary lost artifact. And she needs him for answers, and for protection. Together, they will need to answer one crucial question: who was her real father?

But Caitlin finds herself caught between two men as something else arises between them: a forbidden love. A love between the races that will risk both of their lives, and will force them to decide whether to risk it all for each other…

"TURNED is an ideal story for young readers. Morgan Rice did a good job spinning an interesting twist on what could have been a typical vampire tale. Refreshing and unique, TURNED has the classic elements found in many Young Adult paranormal stories. Book #1 of the Vampire Journals Series focuses around one girl…one extraordinary girl!...TURNED is easy to read but extremely fast-paced....Recommended for anyone who likes to read soft paranormal romances. Rated PG."
--The Romance Reviews

“TURNED grabbed my attention from the beginning and did not let go….This story is an amazing adventure that is fast paced and action packed from the very beginning. There is not a dull moment to be found. Morgan Rice did an awesome job bringing the reader into the story. She also made it easy to root for Caitlin and want desperately to her succeed in finding her truth….I will be looking forward to the second book in the series.”

  • Not really original

    This isn't all that original. The title first of all "The Vampire Journals" sounds a lot like the book series/ hit TV show "The Vampire Diaries" ( if you are interested in watching a supernatural show, watch it). And secondly, the book has horribly written characters. You can tell that the main character is boring and bland. And she asks the most pathetic questions throughout the book. The themes are well enough though. It could be written for the better though.
  • Easy read!

    The story line and the name reminded me of something but I can't quite put my finger on it. But that's fine because not only was thy confusing but so was the whole editing part, i mean I hate editing my own work so I would prefer not to edit what I'm reading as I'm reading it. The parts where it would say he instead is she or reverse was annoying. But other than that I liked the book and am going to continue to read the series and hope the Arthur get some better editors, no offence to anyone I personally no how hard it is to write a book and how hard it is to edit a book :)

    The storyline was decent, and it had potential, but the number of grammatical errors, mis-used words and overuse of words was annoying. Better editing would make all the difference!

    A great series I must say! But towards the end a little predictable, but still good. I would recommend it as a Sunday read where there isn't anything on the tellie :)
