The Damned Book Review

The Damned is the second book by Renee Ahdieh.


Following the events of The Beautiful, Sébastien Saint Germain is now cursed and forever changed. The treaty between the Fallen and the Brotherhood has been broken, and war between the immortals seems imminent. The price of loving Celine was costly.

But Celine has also paid a high price for loving Bastien. Still recovering from injuries sustained during a night she can’t quite remember, her dreams are troubled. And she doesn’t know she has inadvertently set into motion a chain of events that could lead to her demise and unveil a truth about herself she’s not ready to learn.

Forces hiding in the shadows have been patiently waiting for this moment. And just as Bastien and Celine begin to uncover the danger around them, they learn their love could tear them apart.


The Damned continues right after The Beautiful and it is from Bastien’s perspective long with some of the other vampires. Bastien has been changed to a vampire and it isn’t something he accepts.

In The Damned, the focus is on the lions as Bastien adapts to being a vampire and how his relationship changes with the people he surrounds himself with.

I found the book slow but it was still interesting to read. The hint of the trouble vampires have with werewolves have me intrigued for another book.

I definitely recommend this book for those who like Twilight series.

4.5/5 stars
