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…

"Twilight" meets "The Outsiders"
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Yes, very much so!- It is edgier and grittier that the other vampire sagas out there. The focused narration by Brianna Knickerbocker perfectly suits the slow build up of the story!
What was one of the most memorable moments of Turned?
The moment when Caitlin realizes this will not be an ordinary move to a new school!
Which character – as performed by Brianna Knickerbocker – was your favorite?
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
The entire book was very moving- but I loved the initial meeting between Caitlin and Jonah!
Any additional comments?
can't wait to listen to the next books in the series and hopefully Brianna Knickerbocker will be the narrator!

Great start to a new series!
This is such a unique view of the vampire world and a great beginning to the series. It got my attention from the very beginning and I didn't want to stop listening.
Caitlin is 18 and starting another new school. She starts to notice she is changing in strange ways. She is stronger and faster and she is sooo thirsty. She doesn't have a clue whats going on.
Things happen......and Caitlin is running for her life. She is being chased by cops and vampires at the same time.
Caitlin unknowingly gets herself in the middle of a vampire cold-war with only one vampire on her side. Caleb seems to be the dark brooding type and also seems to be bored with his long life until he sees Caitlin survive something she shouldn't be able to.
The characters are interesting, some nice and some are pretty evil. There are lots of good action and fighting scenes throughout the book that I totally enjoyed!
This is a great book!!
