Descrizione

Turned is book #1 in the #1 bestselling series The Vampire Journals, which includes eleven books (and counting).

In Turned, 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…

    It is what can I say nice but quite like the other paranormal novel but it is good nicely done.
  • (3/5)
    She is an entertaining writer. This is a fun, young adult novel.
  • (1/5)
    Wow... Awful narration, sounds like the girl's on Adderall and the story is lacking a point.
  • (2/5)
    Morgan Rice as a whole is an okay writer. She has fantastic ideas if you can get past the glaring errors in the stories. She seems to forget major parameters she creates in her series but overall I have enjoyed all the rest of her books so I gave this series a try. I will finish it because I'm OCD about finishing a story once I start it but I would not recommend at all. All the characters are whishy washy but the main character is the worst. She is a whiney self important brat. Not to mention major plot points get completely forgotten as the series progresses. By the 3rd book the excessive use of the word "suddenly" really grated my nerves. It seems the only way the characters could do anything was SUDDENLY....I gave it 2 stars because of the narration. I see lots of reviews bashing the narrator but I found her the only redeeming part of this dumpster fire. For me I liked that it didn't seem rushed like other books on here do sometimes. I also liked her voices for certain characters.

    The story is great which is the only reason why I finished the first book. I just can’t finish the rest because of the voice of the narrator. It’s just too slow and drawn out.
  • (1/5)
    I had a hard time with the third person perspective but I tried to power on. What I couldn’t take was the narration....OMG...so slow, every syllable is over enunciated, some really simple words mispronounced, I couldn’t get through more than an hour.
  • (5/5)
    Really good story. Can’t wait for the next one
  • (5/5)
    A bit of a slow start. But overall very interesting! Writing is great! Some words get repetitive but i don’t know how many different ways you can reword “Person said” when writing dialogue.
  • (1/5)
    The Near raider read so slowly that it was a great distraction. I don’t know who instructed her to do so, or signed off on this audiobook, but she was absolutely terrible to the point of my not wanting to listen to any other books in the series.
  • (1/5)
    Really, really bad. I liked the cover art and the book started pretty well, but by 20% in - it goes downhill.

    I wanted to listen to a story. I didn’t want to listen to a little girl carefully reading from a school text book. I couldn’t enjoy the story at all. I don’t understand how the producers could allow such a badly read audiobook to be published.

    Isn’t child labour illegal? Asking a kid to read an audiobook? Audiobooks are not meant to be read. The story is to be performed like so many professional audiobook performers did and proudly announced.

    I don’t know if the story is good. But the reader was so bad I couldn’t bear to keep going.

    For teens it's an OK book. Not for adults thou. Boring, predictable and unrealistic even for a vampire book. And I love vampire books

    Turned (Vampire Journals #1) by Morgan Rice

    18 year old Caitlin Paine finds herself being uprooted and in a new school and New York Apartment when her mom moves. The one saving grace in the new dangerous school is a classmate name Jonah and he has taken an instant liking to her.

    However before any feelings can blossom, Caitlin find that she is staring to change. She is overcome by new abilities including superhuman strength, sensitivity to light and a desire to fed - however these are feelings that she does not understand. So she starts to seek answers to why she is feeling these feelings and all the time her cravings lead her to be in the wrong place and the wrong time. Her eyes are being opened to a hidden world in the thriving underground world under New York. She finds herself being trapped between two dangerous sides and right in the middle of a Vampire war.

    During this time Caitlin meets another new friend Caleb, who is a powerful vampire who rescues her from the dark forces. She embarks on an adventure with Caleb to locate and find a legendary lost artefact. She realises that she needs to be with him for answers and also to remain protected. During this adventure she wants only one answer ..... Who is her real father?

    She find that she is caught between Caleb and Jonah as something else arises between them and she feels a forbidden love. A love which will risk both of there lives and she will have to decide whether to risk it all for love. Imagine finding out your father is a vampire and that you are a half breed and everything you know has been brought into question.

    I love Morgan Rice, i have read several of her other fantasy series and she has a writing style as she has a funny yet serious tone. I find that she has a writing style which puts me at ease and wants me to stay cocooned into the world she is describing. The characters are always roundly formed and she inputs a lot of thought into them which makes you want to be friend with them. I always feel the emotion of the characters and have the urge to wrap them in a hug when they are sad and give them a piece of my mind when they have been stupid. I have recommended her to some of my family and everyone i talk to enjoys her writing style. If you want a light and well rounded book, i recommend her book to you.

    Everything seems to happen really really quickly in this book which I thought was a little silly. Also I can't really stand the sound of the narrator's voice she just sounds way too young and I don't know has too much of a lisp Maybe.

    I tried to give this a listen, but it's poorly written and horribly narrated. WHO EXPECTS SOMEONE THEY JUST MET TWO SECONDS AGO TO BE IN LOVE WITH THEM? This character is delusional.

    NARRATOR=(Minus 1-2 Stars)
    Horrible Monotone Narrator that makes it painful to listen to this tale. Worst still, I looked and this SAME AWFUL Narrator, reads this Author’s next book in this Series that is due to be released...*groans*..I’ll likely not buy or listen to the next book, because of this terrible Narrator. (Not that the story is much better.)

    **** WARNING=SPOILERS PAST THIS POINT * o***
    ..
    ..

    OVERALL:
    • LOTS of Repetition
    • Unrealistic Character Actions+Reactions
    • Weak Characters and Plot

    A standard (pretty weak) Vampire tale, in which there is a Hybrid Vampire that doesn’t realize what she is until she turns 18, and then her world turns upside down. Her little brother leaves after some too harsh words from her (who doesn’t immediately go looking for their younger brother they’re supposed to love so much??...it’s just unrealistic!)...She then goes on her first date, to see a concert at Carnegie Hall with a boy at her new school. She is racked with feeding cravings and runs out leaving her date, only to end up snacking on the Opera Singer during Intermission. After stumbling home the next day, she ends up finding her mother dead on the floor, and black figures attacking her, with one especially mean lead vampire named, Kyle. Although she runs, she gets captured. Asking few questions and waiting for fewer answers, she finds herself persecuted and attempted to be executed. Things then get even weirder, in the confusion m, she again runs. And she finds one single vampire comes to her rescue. He takes her to another council of vampires, where she learns she savior saved her thinking that she was “the One”, which was a kin to their Messiah, but that Council rejects her, and tosses her out, because she is a half breed. Barred from leaving the current castle under threat of Banishment, her savior allows her to leave. She ends up walking most of the night, stopping to call her earlier date to check on him, she hears nothing back, and continues on her way, her cellphone now dead. Too tired to continue, she unintentionally falls asleep in Central Park. Waking the next day, and almost immediately, she finds herself surrounded by police! Offering no resistance, as soon as she is in handcuffs, she finds a swam of Vamps attacking the Cops, after which, they again attempt to capture her. Suddenly, her savior swoops in, saves her, and carries her off to parts unknown. (End Book)
