In Turned (Book #1 of the Vampire Journals series), 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.

    " Okaaay...I saw all the hate directed at this book, but I believe you have to consider a lot of things when you're reviewing. This book is kind of like a fun size candy bar. Enjoyable, but not even close to a full meal. Very short. This may be a good thing when you consider the degree of literacy our schools are cranking out now days (with my apologies to dedicated students). It's better that kids are reading something, RIGHT?? There were lots of plot twists and action without a lot of depth. And, of course, since I am fully capable of putting my mind in a state of suspended animation and unbridled shallowness, I rather enjoyed this book. I'll probably go ahead and read more of these because, (a) our little e-library system has them and (b) when I'm waiting for a book a *really* want to read, these are kind of like tossing peanuts. Would I spend money on it? Noooooo... "

    " This felt like a bad Twilight Zone episode with a lame cliffhanger. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anna | 2/3/2014

    " This was not a very long book (clocking in at 195 pages) but it really packed in the action. I found myself actually caring what was going to happen next to Caitlin and wondering about her half-breed vampire status. The next book has ties to Salem, Massachusetts and Nathaniel Hawthorne and its about 100 pages longer. Plus, there are two more books after that to read. A very good book, cannot wait to see what happens next! :) "

    " A fair read I cannot rate it any higher than that. I found the discrepancies in NYC locals a bit distracting (you'd take the train to Columbus Circle to get to Lincoln Center, but not Carnegie Hall). Character development is thin. It's somehow more entertaining when books of fantasy have some semblance of reality engrained into the story line. The action is good and well presented. The story line was mediocre but solid enough that I'll get the 2nd book in the series; it garnered more favorable reviews. It's also aninexpensive kindle purchase. A very short, very quick read. "

    " I really enjoyed this series but seriously - has Morgan Rice not heard of a proof reader? The contextual and grammatical errors are pretty distracting. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jess | 1/2/2014

    " Short and to the point. There is too much vampire meets human the fall in love stuff. This one well isn't so much that. I don't know if I will read the next one. Overall interesting. "

    " At first I was expecting a carbon copy of the Twilight series because initially it appeared to be heading in that diection. However, it was different. I didn't fall in love with it like I fell in love with Twilight but I'm anxious to begin reading the next book in the series. "

    " I liked it.....different spin on the whole vampirism...is that a word? The end leaves you hanging so I had to get the second book....fir $2.51 for kindle....it's worth it "

    " Kept waiting for something to develop, it seemed to drag on and on and on... This book did set up characters and if/when I read the whole series I may change my opinion. "

    " I thought this book was an easy read and I liked it. It makes me want to pick up the next one. I thought that maybe it needed to be longer and include more. But overall good. "
