Consume by Shelly Crane

Book Description:

Eli and Clara's story continues as she tries to finish high school. Eli is as over protective as ever and Tate and his group of friends are no help. They wait for the Horde, always looking over their shoulder. But the ever annoying but strangely prophetic bird begins to become more of a chatter box and Eli learns something that could change some things. Not just for him and Clara, but Devourers everywhere.
Then an unexpectedness guest comes forcing Eli to flee with Clara, leaving her temporary family behind. She is thrown into his world of underground 'traitors' and learns much of his past. They meet many new people and creatures along the way to freedom. But when tragedy strikes the two, will Clara see the monster in Eli? Can she handle his strange world and awful past? Will one of them lose their life forever...

Christina's BookReview
“I want to save her because..." Even though he was speaking to her, he never took his eyes off mine. "Because I'm a better man with her. Because I can't imagine going back to being who I was before I met her. Because I'm afraid...that I could be that monster again without her here loving me.”

In this final installment of the Devoured series we witness a change in Clara and finally a change in Eli. As they fight to stay alive and get the help they need in order to live peacefully Clara learns more about the world of the Devourers. But for these two, nothing will separate them. Not a bitter brother, old as well as new enemies, or the juvenile acts of human teenagers. Eli and Clara encounter new beings in this book and make friends with surprising allies. But will fighting for their love cost them their lives?

Consume was an okay wrap up to Eli and Clara's story. We meet new characters and delve a little into ones introduced in book one. It was interesting reading more about the world Eli is from. But at times the book was just bland. The action was bland, the relationship was bland, and the characters were not really memorable. Well except for Enoch, he was interesting. I'm interested in how his story will play out in the next book in this series.

The book had its few good moments and that is why the 3.5 rating, but wasn't a book that I would read over and over again. I felt there was so much potential to Eli and Clara's story if the Devourer world was delved into more and in depth.

All in all, if you want a light, quick read then pick up this series.
