Some good twists in the story line.
MOUSE
The protagonist seemed irritating and made terrible desicions and i felt like the author rushed too many things cramming them all into the ending.

In Book 3 of the Vampire Journals, Betrayed, we literally take up where we ended in Loved, Book 2. As with Loved there are a number of story lines going on at one time.

The main story is about Caitlin, who is now a full vampire. Caleb brings her to a small unknown island, Pollepel, located on the Hudson River in New York. The island is home to a group of misfit vampires who are outcasts from the more "normal" vampire covens. Here Caitlin will train to fight and learn to live with her new found vampire skills. Meanwhile, Caleb is visited by his ex-wife, Sera, causing Caitlin to question his feelings for her. Rejected by Caitlin, Caleb returns to his coven to try to convince the elders to fight against the Blacktide coven. Meanwhile, Sam and Samantha have been captured by the Blacktide Coven and Samantha must try to figure a way to get them out alive. Meanwhile, evil Kyle is in possession of the Sword and determined to take over leadership of the Blacktide coven and destroy humankind.

Can Caitlin learn to live this new life without Caleb? Can Caleb convince his coven leaders that the Blacktide coven is a threat to them and get the help needed to defeat them? Will Sam and Samantha get out of the clutches of the enemy alive? And what of Kyle's plan to take over the world? These questions and more are answered with twists and turns along the way, unexpected alliances are forged and there is an ending that you won't see coming.

This book is written a bit darker than the previous book. Lighthearted moments are few and far between and the violence much more graphic.

I absolutely loved this book. This is the best book so far from Morgan Rice. I read the book in one go and i couldn't put it down. This is a very good, easy to read, book (even if english isn't your native language).

Betrayed (#3 Vampire Journals)
By: Morgan Rice
Fiction/vampires, romance, para-normal
Betrayed is the third installment in the Vampire Journals series.
Caitlin Paine, a newly turned vampire is in awe of her new abilities and a new `life' with the man she loves, Caleb. Then things quickly begin to change when Caleb's ex-wife comes into the picture and Caleb makes Caitlin stay on an island on the Hudson.
Morgan Rice again has given us another engaging chapter in the life of Caitlin Paine, a dramatic story that pulls the reader in and leaves us wanting more. I adore Caitlin and the insight that Rice provides into her emotions. It's easy to relate to her and the struggles that she is going through, even if some of them are of the para-normal variety. I had difficultly putting this book down and I am anxiously awaiting the next book in the "Vampire Journals" series.

I feel the story has a good romance plot, lots of action, and a very quick pace.
I'm not sure if it's just me, but there are at least a hundred typos (no exaggeration) in this Kindle Book. I'm not sure if it is just because it is the Kindle version, but I really really really hope that there aren't that many grammatical and consistency errors in the hard copy of the book. It's absolutely ridiculous.
Once I got past all of the errors, which is a big feat for me, the story is okay, definitely interesting enough to want to keep reading. I am grudgingly hooked and am bummed that book #5 isn't out yet. (I only say grudgingly because of the errors.) If you are easily irked by typographical errors in your reading, be forewarned that you won't be fully able to enjoy the story line.

Ok, I liked the first 2 books in the Vampire Journals, and this one is ok. I was so freakin' mad at Caitlin though, ug teenagers! I mean come on, grow up your life isn't the same and try not to be so fickle. She did grow some and she is coming into herself, but man it's a frustrating process. There were parts in the story, where I just wanted to say, "Really? Again?" but it has some interesting plot turns. We meet new characters and they are pretty interesting, Caitlin's character just seems to be regressing in maturity though, I hope she grows up in the next one, I mean really she has to. Anyway, Sam and Samantha's story line gets an interesting twist and , Kyle is just pure malevolence right now. There are multiple story lines going at once, 3 actually, and we even go back and see a character from Turned which was...interesting, but not necessary. The books do seem to be getting longer which is good, I do plan on picking up the next one, but I'm hoping for more character growth.

***May contain spoilers***

Much like with the second book in this series, "Loved", I find myself conflicted about how I truly feel about it. On the one hand I found myself enjoying the (majority of) characters much more in this book than I had in the earlier books (seriously, I never thought that I would find myself sympathizing, let almost actually like Sera, Caitlin's nemesis/ Caleb's ex, but I did- nor did I ever expect to find myself liking Sam once again). However, on the other hand, I found the plot of this book to be be cliched, and dare I say it, "Twilight"-esque (I absolutely hate playing the "Twilight" card, but what transpires at the end of this book is totally reminiscent of "Breaking Dawn"), while in the earlier books the plot had, in my opinion, been quite unique.

As mentioned, I found myself liking the majority of characters much more in this book than the others, however, Caitlin was not one of them. In my review of "Turned" I stated that I believed that Caitlin had the potential to be a really kick-ass female character, much like Merit, Dru, or Rose, however, after having read this book I know that she can never hold her own against those females. Much of what she does she does without any thought (and not even like "Vampire Academy's" Rose who says things without giving them any thought and kicks herself later for it), Caitlin seriously does things with NO. THOUGHT. AT. ALL. (and usually she gives no thought at all to the stupidest/ most common sense things ever- ie. leaving the sword behind, the sword which has the power to basically humankind/ vampirekind FOREVER).

Furthermore, insta-love (or close to it) happens once again in this book (and while I could have maybe accepted it had it been between two newly introduced characters it wasn't.
