Tristan Coleman has survived the change from Clann magic user to vampire, much to Savannah Colbert's joy—and despair. By changing the Clann's golden boy and newly elected leader, even to save him from death, she has unleashed a fury of hatred and fear that they cannot escape.

As the Clann and the vampire council go to war, Tristan and Sav face a new threat—a fracturing of

Sniff - hard to believe this trilogy has come to a close. Tristan and Savannah are one of my all-time favorite power couples. It had everything. Paranormal powers. Check. Forbidden romance. Check. Kick-ass hero and heroine. Check-check. Awesome author. Check.

Consume killed me. Not because of the story, although a few loop-de-loops did take me by surprise. But because after everything Tristan and Sav

Oh. My. Goodness. I don't even know what to say about this book. Amazing. Wonderful. A totally epic conclusion to this brilliant series! Consume was just perfect, magnificent. There aren't enough words to say how much I adored this book.

After such a brilliant series, I was expecting a lot from the conclusion. All the built up in the previous two books, the long buried resentment between witches and vampires. It had to amount to something huge. And this book definitely delivered. It was an entire

I think this is the prettiest of the US covers, but the Australian covers are a a lot prettier, I know they are trying to appeal to the tasts of kids in different country's but it's stupid when one place gets a pretty cover and then the other gets ugly

I've been open with my love/hate relationship with The Clann Series, even though I've often wanted to keep it a secret. It's a lot like how I felt about the Twilight Saga. They drove me crazy and often annoyed me, but I couldn't stop reading! So I would be lying if I said that I didn't like the first two books, because I ultimately did. Grudgingly, though. With that being said, I definitely liked Consume the least out of the series.

Consume picks up soon after where Covet left off. Tristan and Sa

This is the last book of Tristan and Savannah's story sadly.
There is a fourth book in The Clann Series, Capture, but it is about totally separate characters.

Tristan and Savannah can finally be together with no threat of Savannah hurting him on accident. But unfortunately Tristan is dealing with some pretty powerful revenge issues that throw a monkey wrench in the happily ever after scenario. On top of that they have to worry about The Clann trying to pin murders on them and trying to take them

The first two books made me late for work. But overall, I would say this book is to die-for. Not only that it leaves you questioning but as you progress to the next page; excitement just boils up!
I can't handle waiting for 2013.

Lindy's Thoughts:

I read the first two books in the series, Crave, and Covet, when they first came out. I loved them so much, and have been waiting for the opportunity to read Consume for a long time now. I love young adult books, because it gives me the opportunity to reflect on my high school years, growing up, forming strong friendships, and falling in love for the first time. The Clann series has brought me back to my high school years. Then, you add elements of magic, mystery, action, love,

So. I read yet another book without checking to see if it was part of a series.
It was.
And yet, somehow no one is shocked....
Anyway, (as I now know) this is the third book in the Clann series, and it seemed to wrap up what I assumed was a trilogy. But it's not listed as a trilogy, so maybe there are more books to come? Not sure. Also not important to the enjoyment of this book.
After a few chapters I got the gist of what had happened in the previous books, and got sucked into Consume and it's cast

I received an e-arc from the publisher via NetGalley.

I have been a huge fan of Melissa Darnell since I read the first book of the series. I admit I have a love/hate relationship with the books but somehow, I always end up concluding that I still love them even with all the "bummer" moments I find myself in while reading the books. But I don't think I can say the same with Consume. Since this is Tristan and Savannah's last book, I expected a lot more action and excitement. Unfortunately, I found

This was a good conclusion to a great series.

Book 1 and 2 had me totally enraptured. I loved them so much they were hard to put down. This book was the same at times but I felt like the first half drawled out a little and I couldn't wait to get to the parts where it would pick up.

A large part of what I liked about book 1 and 2 was the school environment and that was missing in this book. But the ending and the last half of the book were amazing.

I will definitely be looking out for more from this

To see my full review:

I began reading this novel without realizing it was the third and final in the series. It’s actually my first novel of the author’s, and I was pleasantly surprised to find that, though not technically a stand-alone, it can be read on its own and still make perfect sense. It’s extremely well written and I highly enjoyed it, even though I missed out on the events in the first two novels. But Darnell does a phenomenal job keeping the rea

The pace of this book was very slow and almost boring. Things sped up a bit after the first 70 pages when a war between vampires and the Clann broke out, but the excitement was short lived. They were the centerpiece of the conflict that started the war and instead of doing something about it they decided to remove themselves from the situation. It wasn’t till I reached the last third of the book that the characters finally decided that they should claim partial responsibility for the whole mess ...more

This was one of the books I have been waiting for nearly 2 or more months to get my hands on. And when I did, I had a whole pile of such books, and so I had to improvise, namely, I just took a random book from that pile and read it. First it was Hover by Melissa West, after it was Deception by C.J. Redwine. And just after I finished Deception, my lucky choice was Consume by Melissa Darnell. Duh, if I wasn't happy.

Finally reading the final book in this trilogy, I really enjoyed how it all came together.

Plot: This book is full of action and never leaves on bored. There is constant movement with the characters growth, fights between the clans and of course who can forget the drama in relationships. As the reader, you get the full effect of strength, excitement and love, but also you get scared and tired. There is so much going on that your just excited to move on and close that door. It all happens at a goo

This is the final book in the Clann series and I am was a great ending to the series, BUT it is also the ending. I am sad to not read about Savannah and Tristan anymore!!!
As for the book, once again, I was drawn into Savannah's and Tristan's relationship. What made me enjoy this series was seeing these two try to work out their relationship. I have laughed and even shed some tears through all of the books and this one was the same. Even though they have vampire and witch powers, the

Great end for the series! I couldn't stop reading, just flew through the pages!

I was happily surprised with Savannah. She was an amazing main character! Great heroine: strong, wise, selfless. She set the example in this book.

Savannah's mom was so selfish and annoying! She act just like a child! She cared more about her dog than her daughter. She said she loved Savannah a lot, but love is something you have to show. And the end? That just was excesive selfishness. Everytime Savannah and her tal

I was given a free copy of this book for my honest review.

In the third instalment of the series, Consume begins with lovestruck teenagers Savannah and Tristan fresh from escaping a clann war. Dealing with his newly turned vampire status, they await the return of Tristan’s memories to quell the bloodlust.

As they return to their hometown, the vampires are confronted by the hostile clann they left behind. With tensions between the two races mounting, their hopes of settling into a normal life again
2.5 Stars - The only reason this didn't receive two stars was because of how much I remember enjoying the previous two. I don't know what it was with this one, but it didn't even compare to the others in its series. I was awfully boring and everything felt cliched, rushed, and solved in a way that was really unsolved. A specific issue I had was the continuous telepathic conversations. I get that it's a special ability between Clann members and vampires to their respective races, and that Savanna ...more

The Clann was a really enjoyable series with a perfect ending, which is always favourable to me.

At the end of the last book, we see Tristan being turned into a vampire by Savannah, to save his life. So at the start of Consume, we see his transition, getting his memories back (which the change caused him to lose), and learning to deal with the blood lust.

They then have to deal with the Clann, who have a new, heinous leader, Mr. Williams, who killed Tristan's mother, and blamed it on Tristan. Sa

I can't believe it's over! *sad tears* I heart Savannah and Tristan!!!!

This was a great trilogy and I absolutely loved how the story progressed and came to a close. The books were interesting and I couldn't put them down. I wanted to know what would happen next.

There were some interesting twists and turns in this book. The characters shine in this one and show their true colors. The fight to the finale was fantastic.

There are two things that set up this book to fall flat from the start: 1. I'm getting too old to handle the YA books. I loved them in my twenties but now well into my thirties I just don't connect with the characters. 2. I read these books as they came out rather than waiting and reading them all back to back. That have me plenty of time to no longer care about the characters or remember certain plot lines and whether or not they were important. It was still an enjoyable read with a unique take ...more

I picked this up without looking close enough to realise it was the third and final book in a series. Blinded by cover lust, I think!

As it was, the book started with a fairly big info dump that caught me up on the bones of the drama from the previous instalments. It's the kind of thing that would probably have really annoyed me had I read the previous two books, but it was useful coming into it fresh like I was.

I liked the ideas of the vampires vs. witches, tenuous peace treaties and betrayals f

Consume is the third and final book in The Clann series by Melissa Darnell. The main characters are Savannah Colbert and Tristan Coleman and the story centers around their forbidden love and what they have endured because they each belong to different factions of an old and ongoing feud between The Clann and the Vampires. If you aren't familiar with the series, The Clann is a group of gifted individuals - better known as witches. Their headquarters just happens to be in the town of Jacksonville ...more
