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.

I'm so sad that this is the last book in the series. But I have to admit it was fun to write my very first series ending. Extremely sad, but fun to wrap everything up :) I'll miss Eli terribly!

I love goodreads! There is no other way how I would discover this excellent author. Shally Crane has unbelievable imagination and after reading this series I certainly want to read all her other books.

Consume was perfect continuation of this 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 betwe

Best Advice: Just buy everything Shelly Crane writes.

Starting off, I'm disappointed... disappointed that Consume is the end of this series. I could really go for more Eli and Clara. But I do think this was one of the best endings I have ever read.

Consume starts off right where Devour left off, and though I read in some reviews that it starts off slow, I didn't think it was. I mean the romance lover in me wanted to skip some parts to where Eli was involved, but once they are on the run- it's fas

Ok, I have read alot of mixed reviews on this book. I for one LOVED it! I love Shelly Crane as I have tweeted she is TOP NOTCH for me!

Consume picked up were Devour left off. Clara was hoping to make it thru her senior year without the Horde on her back, but somethings arent meant to be when Finn a blast from Eli's past shows up and makes Eli and Clara reevaluate their plans. So what do they do...they run!

It really sad to see the series ending..I will totally miss Eli and Clara ,Enoch n their adventures..

I liked how the book moulded from the first it made Eli n Clara more closer in their explore their love get closer past their fears and doubts and accepting they are part of eachothers lives.
How Eli took care of clara at every was sweet especially to see our snarky clara being taked cared of and ordered.

In my opinion this book is much more exciting than the first one.

We get to see a lot more of Eli's world, along with meeting people from his past and understanding a bit more about how he lived his life before he decided he didn't want to be evil anymore and before he met Clara. Their love is put to test once again as they fight against the Horde and find themselves in danger.

We get to see another side of Enoch, as opposed to the evil one we got a glimpse of in the first book. I have to say I re

Clara was hoping that she would be able to finish the last few weeks of school unscathed and under the Horde’s radar. But when a blast from Eli’s past shows up, they know what they have to do…go on the run. After using persuasion on Mrs. Ruth, Eli sets off with Clara with one thing in mind…he must keep her safe.

Once on the road, Clara is faced with headaches and blackouts. And for once when Clara looks in Eli’s face she knows that whatever is causing them is not good. Will making it to The Wall

Gah!!! I love this book!! I am a little sad that this is the end, though - I'm really gonna miss Eli & Clara! I was shocked and amazed at all the things they had to go through, but their love was so great they always seem to manage whatever comes their way. They are both willing to make whatever sacrifice necessary to help the other one. It's hard to imagine Eli ever being an evil creature, he is so sweet and loving with Clara. They complete each other, make the other a better person, and ma ...more

It took me less than 24 hours to read this book. It was great, I really loved it but I kind of would have rather her turned into a devourer instead of him turning into a human. Just because they are more indestructible. And I'm gald that Enoch was finally coming around. He was lovable in a prickly bear sort of way. And I'm kind of freaking out that it said 'THE VERY END' at the end b/c I thought Shelly set it up perfectly for it to continue on with at least one more book. I hope that there will ...more

Yes, I am going to say it, I Consumed it. Ms. Crane must have lit her computer on fire when she was writing certain parts of Consume. *Fans self* I couldn't put it down. I loved everything about it. I have been waiting to see where Clara and Eli's story would take them. I can honestly say I never thought it would lead to where it did. It was filled with twists and turns leaving me to wonder if there was going to be a HEA. I just couldn't get enough. I was frustrated one minute and then ready to ...more

“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 l

Recommends it for: Everyone
In Consume, we see more of, not only Eli bringing out the best in Clara, but how she has done the same for him. Clara really comes into her own in Consume and is happy with the person she has grown into with Eli. She has found a group of true friends who have problems of their own and she is starting to feel more at home with the Pastor's family.

The Horde is after Eli and Clara just as much as last time and they must go on the run. Their journey is full of twists and turns that seem to test Eli

Once again Shelly Crane delivers an amazing book. I planned on reading this book over several days but ended up finishing it all in one sitting it was just so good. In this book Clara and Eli are racing to New Mexico not only to escape the Horde but also to find an answer to what is going on with Clara( I'm not going too reveal too much but Clara gets a little sick in this book.) And tagging along with Clara and Eli are Finn( Eli's old friend) and Enoch the character we all love/hate. Its a rac ...more

Consume is the conclusion of the Eli and Clara's love story that began with Devour. Once again, Shelly Crane creates a world of paranormal all her own. Consume begins where Devour left off Clara is trying to graduate while Eli continues to worry about the horde. After a person from Eli's past comes to visit, Eli and Clara must run from the horde.

Another Danger comes to light as Clara begins to get sick and show strange signs. In order to seek a cure, Eli and Clara start off on an adventure that
"My heart hurts with the knowledge that I don't deserve you."
"Eli-" I started to argue.

"Clara(...)," he whispered softly and smiled. I smiled too, and sighed as a sign to him to keep going. "I don't deserve you and never will, but I'll never let you go."

Then he mouthed, "I. Love. You."
I mouthed back. "I. Love. You."

It's been a while since I had read the first book in this series...but it didn't take much to immerse me back in the wonderful story of Clara and Eli.

I love how Shelly writes about life overcoming the odds. Her characters are strong...especially her female leads. Clara physically and mentally goes through things that most people, let along 17 year old girls would never be able to handle.

The love between Clara and Eli is just....amazing. Shelly has that way of writing about love.....

Oh Shelly Crane, can you write a book I won't like??

I was somewhat surprised to hear that the Devoured series turned into a 2 booker...however after reading Consumed I can say I am quite content with the conclusion of this series. A wonderful read and all of the happiness and love that leaps across the pages from start to finish is a welcome read. Yes there are tough circumstances, but ultimately you know from the beginning that Clara and Eli are meant to be together and can't help but cheer th

Consume is book #2 in the Devoured Series by Shelly Crane, it starts immediately following on from the end of Devour.

I enjoyed Devour but to be honest Consume was a bit of a letdown.

So the good bits...

• Enoch I knew there was a good guy in there, it didn’t come out as much as it could but hey he has his own follow on book.

• Clara & Eli arrrrr how cute.

And the not so good bits...

• This book was missing a serious a

I'm guessing all of those reading this are all Shelly Crane fans like me and have all read several of her books already so Im just going to keep this short and sweet and say:


Seriously Shelly, you're a freaking genius. I seriously hope that one day I can be as good of a writer as you! You blow me away every single time. The only complaint I have about this book is that it's the last one!!! RECOMMEND RECOMMEND RECOMMEND.

Consume continues to amaze the reader with a whole new world, a world with Devourers. Eli is one of the sweetest male characters that Shelly has written and Clara is his perfect fit. And Eli's tongue and eyebrow piercing? Can you say hot?? Shelly takes us into the darker side of the Devourers and introduces us to all of these fantastical new creatures that will rock your face off. Great ending book to a short but fabulous series.

Another amazing book from Shelly Crane!
I LOVED Consume just as much as Devour. I swoon over Eli and honestly Enoch grew on me in this book. He tried and you can see Enoch cared more than he would admit. I don't think he understood that he cared. It was a great ending to the series. I will miss Eli, lol. I do think it"d be cool to maybe see Enoch with his own story... maybe. *winks* Lol! It'd. Be pretty awesome....

Sweet, beautiful and exciting book with pure and touching romance, eventful plot and an awesome ending! Loved Eli - in this installment he confirmed his status of one of my favourite book boyfriends - all he was doing or saying was perfect! The plot never ceased to amaze me and the ending was very touching. Highly recommended!!!
Consume is exciting. There's lots of twists to Clara and Eli's adventure. Even though Enoch is a pain, he grew on me in this book. The guy is funny, I'll give him that. My heart melted...well pretty much every time Eli spoke or even just looked at Clara. He's so sweet! I definitely swooned. Well done, Shelly Crane!
