The Damned is a great second offering in this series. It starts with the introduction of a new villain and a brief warm-up/update of what's been going on since the last book, then takes off with non-stop action until the final page. Elena has matured some over the last six months, but not enough to keep her out of immediate trouble as she tries to keep her family safe by leaving home and placing herself in the custody of the Protectors in Bucharest.
"Custody' turns out to be the operative word, because she quickly realizes that, instead of being protected, she is actually a prisoner. She manages to exacerbate the situation further by alienating almost everyone with her snarky attitude and sarcastic comments. To make things worse, everyone is out for her blood... literally.
I was intrigued with how the story expanded in this book, in which more of the secret of Elena's origins are revealed and some older, more powerful characters are introduced. Of course, there are more gorgeous, hunky male vampires (a necessary evil in these types of novels, I suppose) to create plenty of sexual tension, which makes for nice reading but emerges as a theme I'm sure will be more explored as Elena approaches her eighteenth birthday, where I bet the excrement will really hit the fan.
I was also happy to see that Elena's brother, Lucas, remains in the picture and that he will obviously play a larger role in the saga as they both deal with the ultimate betrayal. And I'm hoping there will be more of Lucius, a character I particularly bonded with, to come in the third book.
Which brings me to the final negative aspect of this whole thing. I'm a glass-half-empty kind of guy, and I anticipate a long wait for book three. That's not fair, because I'm ready now. Oh, well. Kudos to Ms. Berridge on this one and a resounding five stars.

My Rating: **** 4.5 Stars ****
Another smashing hit in one of my new favorite series! I absolutely friggin' love these characters and the story that this author puts together.
I'm serious, these are my favorite characters of 2016. Wait.... I think I've just created a new goodreads bookshelf. Yup, I totally did. I mean it though, when I wasn't reading this book, all I was doing was thinking about Elena, Sebastian, Lucas, William... you get the idea.
This author is extremely original and she definitely keeps surprising me! Every time I think I might have something figured out, bam! I'm wrong. Being wrong has never felt so good. I keep getting these little hints of the upcoming darkness and I've gotta tell you, I'm totally hooked. Things are definitely about to take a turn for the worse and I know its going to be a fantastic third book.
Romance, vampires, mean werewolves, conspiracy, it's all there.
And loving it.
After reading these books by Kristy Berridge, I took a punt on a new book by this author, it's called "Diary of a Teenage Zombie" let me tell you I was not disappointed, Ms Berridge has a way with comedy, do your self's a favour and read it.
Come on Kristy Berridge or your agent release the third book................Please........Please.
Ok off to re-read the Hunted & the Dammed
