Publisher's Summary

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…

What the Critics Say

"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." (Paranormal Romance Guild)

"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)

    "Good story - bad narrator"

    I read the book and really enjoyed it. This narrator made made Caitlin sound like a whiny self-centered teenager. I did not get that impression when reading the book.

    Story
    "beginning only"

    your teachers told you "when writing a good story you must have 3 things, a beginning, a middle or climax and an ending or conclusion to wrap everything up" well this book is just the beginning. just when you start to understand what's going on- it's over. it is 5+ hours long but I felt like nothing happened. I felt like the synopsis was better or it was all that was needed to understand everything that happened!
    it was hard to stay interested in the book when the narrator drove me crazy! she sounded like all the teenage bullies or valley girls I went to middle school with!
    probably won't be suggesting this book to anyone, nor will I be getting the second book!

    "4.5 hours of my life I will never get back"

    Poorly written: shallow plot, cheesey ending. It would be a great Teeney Bopper story, if not for the language. I wont be reading subsequent titles. Narrator did a decent job.

    Story
    "Slightly Disappointed"

    I am sad to say that even though I really wanted to enjoy this book I just struggled to truly get in to it. I disliked the main character and found her to be irritating with her statements or thoughts. In addition the characters were very contradictory and the author seemed to struggle with finding catchy and unique ways to catch the audience. I knew if I heard the word conspicuous one more time I was going to scream.

    "good story yet hard to get through"

    I really like the book and I wanted to hear it in audio version. This reader sounded like she was 13 years old and mispronounced several words. Her tone was quite depressed and droll. Thus, torturous to listen to.
