I am so happy to discover this excellent author. Shally Crane has unbelievable imagination and after reading this series I certainly want to read all here other books.
Consume was perfect continuation of Devour series. Clara and Eli were adorable as a couple in this book. This time they had to face various problems and obstacles and sometimes I was really worried that they would never got their HEA since whole book was darker than the first one. Relationship between Eli and Clara went through different stages in this story. They had to learn to unconditionally trust each other, realize that they deserve each other and manage their strong feelings for each other. Their relationship didn't have any fans and they had to constantly fight some opponents. I really liked that this book was about one and true love without having some love triangle or indecisive heroine.
I liked Eli in the first book Devour, but here? He is truly caring, sweet and such a loving character. It was admirable how he respected all of Clara's decisions and supported her.
In Consume, loads of things happened. Consume was exciting and thrilling story which was very hard to put down most of the time. If you enjoyed first book, do not waste your time and read this too! Moreover, I was happy with the ending and I am curious how will things go on with this story in third instalment. Even though, I will definitely miss Eli and Clara as main characters.
