“You have always been the one for me, Keegan.”

Consumed, the last book in the amazing trilogy of Keegan’s Chronicles by Julia Crane..I was dreading you, not wanting to say goodbye to the characters I have learned to love. But Julia did not disappoint in this last installment. She gave her readers an ending they will love, and her characters an ending they more than deserved.

Consumed picks up right where Conflicted left us, Keegan and Rourke’s bond has been brought back! Keegan was dating Donald t...more

This series has been such a heart-wretching, touching, and action packed from first book to this book. I never want to lose these characters and would like to see more of these books even as spin offs utilizing the other characters brought to the front as the main character instead of supporting characters. I ultimately want to see happy endings for all of the characters. Although their bond is back Rourk wants Keegan to come to him out of love not because it is elfin destiny. He has choosen her...more

My favorite part: Apartment hunting... Folks show up to look at a place and are asked if they want to see an apartment or a cottage. The cottages are behind the apartment building, and they go back quite a way. They walk 10 minutes back into a secluded corner of the property where they can hear a waterfall in the distance. The cottage is *perfect,* they can afford it on a brand new solder-in-training's paycheck, they can sign the lease right then and have the keys that very day. They e...more
I'm so happy I stumbled upon this series. Consumed was the perfect ending to a great series and I love how although there was conflict it didn't take over the whole story. I'm so sick of reading book after book only to find that the heroine is about to be kidnapped, or that there is some crazy deranged killer after her OR that their powers could destroy the world. It was a welcome breath of fresh air to read a story that had the necessary ups and downs but not overly done. I loved every second o...more

Ok,so it seems the series keeps getting worse with each book!
NOW I'm really disappointed I mean There really isn't any real story behind this book!!!!
I thought I would love it,because USUALLY in a series my Favorite book is the last one where we get to see the HEA of our Favorite characters ... but not with this one ...

No,I'm just glade I finished it ...

Sadly,the 2 stars review is just because it ends Happily Ever After ...
I think this story line had potential but I felt like I was floating above it. I liked the characters just give me more dept or action. I like Rourke and Tommy's friendship. I also like what happens with Tommy and Anna. I think Thaddeus could be a series on his own about his struggles with his visions and being a warrior.
This book went by way to fast for me and was very lovey-dovey. I did enjoy a happy ending AND that Rourk was such a gentleman. Far too many stories have people with loose morals in them. I would have loved to have more of Tommy and Anna though. Or Lauren and her dark fairy.
It was good. Is this the last one? I was thinking something was gong to happen. baffled.
by far, my favorite out of the 3! I'll be back to post a better review...
So good I would give more stars if I could!!!

This book starts just where the second book left off. Anna and Keegan’s brother, Thaddeus, worked together to get Keegan’s bond back with Rourk. Keegan and her friends are at her birthday party, and Donald, Keegan’s boyfriend, witnessed the whole thing.

Keegan catches up with Donald to try to console him, but she is happy that her bond is back. Her friendship with Donald is strained, and he withdraws from his friends. Keegan tries to make up lost time with...more

Consumed picks up exactly where Conflicted left off. Keegan`s birthday and an entire whirl wind of emotion. She was happy with the way things were going, her bond gone and her relationship with Donald. Rourk comes back for her birthday and with a ring brings their bond back. In the process this breaks Donalds heart and infurates Keegan. She can`t deny her bond with Rourk and the feeling of being complete but she never wanted to hurt Donald like that. However like the Keegan I have grown to know...more
This is basically my review for the whole trilogy.

While I enjoyed this series and read the whole thing in 3 days ... one day per book it was not because the book was well written or terribly interesting. I found the writing and plot incredibly juvenile which is partly how I got through them so fast even though I work 9-5 and have to lesson plan at night. The characters were cookie cutter YA fare which I am used to so it neither detracted nor added to the books however it meant I didn't really c...more

Out of all the trilogy books this would happened to be my favorite, maybe it's because Rourk and Keegan are I don't spending A LOT of time together. I understand how Keegan is confused, "I don't know, mom. It's all so sudden I just broke Donald's heart. I barely know Rourk, but I'm so drawn to him I can't do anything but be with him." Girl I would totally just forget all that stuff and be like YAY HE'S MY MAN, but that's just me. Rourk is like every girl's dream he just wants Keegan to be happy...more

I loved the the three books in this series being together. It made for the flow of the story so much easier. Keegan is an elf who has a chosen mate but won't know who he is until she is of age. Though she is trying to be normal things happen and her elven world is brought to the forefront and Keegan realizes things are what they seem to be. The story is well written and is great for a young sex however there is enough intrigue in the story to keep us adults enthralled. Definitely lov...more

I felt there were unanswered questions at the end, though I do love a happy ending. I was relieved when Rourk finally got his chosen back.

Keegan really tries to grow up in this last installment though I still felt she wasn't mature in many ways. It lacked suspense and action. The entire thing was details on her planning a wedding. Again with it being rushed and time flying by. No real depth and same as book two lack of a plot.

In short I think the whole series would have been better ha...more
I think this book could of been summed up in number 2. I felt it dragged on and couldn't wait for it to end. To me there was no reason for this one and the description they gave for the book did not go with it. It was dull, dead, and boring.
Courtney Robichaux
I LOVED this book! Keegan really matured and grew up a lot! She decided to combine her passions and change her major. She's making her own way in the world with Roark by her side and I couldn't be happier! Thank God my heart finally stopped breaking for Roark! It was wonderful to see their bond return! He's the perfect gentleman! He's understanding, respectful, loyal, and passionate!!! Keegan really lucked out!

The descriptions in this book were incredibly vivid! I felt like I was there in the ho...more

Could Rourk and Keegan finally be together? Oh I hoped for this the moment I opened it up on my Kindle

Best Part: You think I am going to say Rourk again, don't ya? are right! Rourk did win his Chosen One, Keegan back. I was so happy about this. I loved Rourk so much more throughout this book because of everything that he did for Keegan. I also loved that he stuck to the Elfin tradition. I liked that Julia Crane entwined the characters from the...more

Warning! Spoilers!

I don't know why this book got so many high reviews, I found that there was no real plot and there was no real point to the book. The only key events that occurred were Donald running away and the wedding at the end, but with those two exceptions nothing really happened. I did think that it was a cute story and even though I normally don't read books in the present tense, I made an exception for this series. The other two books were also somewhat lacking in a defined story but...more

little to much information in regard to sex for the age group this is written for. not a very well written story.
This is the third and final book in the Keegan's Chronicles series. Again, as with the second book in the series, it is slow-paced but the story is enjoyable, especially for those who are suckers for a happily ever after ending (like me). It is very light reading so if you are looking for something intricately woven (like a Terry Brooks' book) you will be disappoint4ed. However, if you are looking for a light and entertaining story filled with magical creatures (elves, fairies, shape shifters, e...more

This was a great ending to a good trilogy.
Though some things were too transparent.. You kind of knew what was comming etc..
Plus in one moment Keegan was set on something the next she changed her mind at once. That ticked me a bit of.. And didn`t make any sense. Therefor the book didn`t get full pot in stars.

But it`s a great fairytale. :D
And about the covers.. I prefer the new once.. The old ones wasen`t good enough for the books :P If you ask me..

This is a perfect ever after fairytale.

Oh so much has happened throughout the series and it continued to be consistent in its greatness through and through. Great end to a great series!

Keegan, Rourk and the crew have all matured a great deal. Many changes have occurred and new ones will be made.Some have found extreme happiness and some are experiencing great pain. But the most important of all is that the bond between Keegan and Rourk continues to bloom and prosper!

Such a very satisfying series for both YA and adults to enjoy :)

Yeah, I am going to have to say this book was the worst of all. Rourk and Keegan can be together. When they are apart, Keegan has to wear a necklace since her heart misss him or something like that. And that is pretty much it. Donald goes on a drunken spree because he misses Keegan. Rourk basically tells him to smarten up because he is an idiot, and he listens. Keegan and Rourk find a house. Rouk wants to wait for marriage to have sex. They get married. Have sex. The end. Not impressed.
Yawnfest. Unless u totally like scene after scene of texts saying I love u. Or dialogue that consists of the most uneducated banter. The reading level of this book was like 4th grade. Tops. I think my eight year old could have powered through. But I would never subject him to that. It would be cruel. I only made it half way through and then gave up because really, Keegan was a brat in need of an attitude adjustment and rourk was a fool. Donald is sooooo lucky he got an out. Run Donald. Run.
Mar 24, 2012 JoAnne rated it 2 of 5 stars Recommends it for: ..........
Like with all the others, there just wasn't enough good stuff. Her brother should be older not younger. It was really frustrating to feel like the author was just skimming the story and not letting it live to its full potential. I think the second and third books could have been combined and been better and there could have been more emotional dialogue.
I wanted to love the series, but it just didn't give me enough to love.
