Finally reading the final book in this trilogy, I really enjoyed
Finally reading the final book in this trilogy, I really enjoyed how it all came together.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
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 good pace where the reader gets a really good connection with the story. Nothing is confusing but mostly just aimed at what is happening right then and there in the story.
Love: There are several relationships going on. First is of course Savannah and Tristan. They go through a time of difficultness because of the decisions they make. It’s hard to watch them fight but in the end they work together, finding each other once again. And then the parents. One thing I adore about this book is that Savannah’s parents are very involved. And what do you know, the reader even gets to see the relationship between Savannah’s dad and mom come together. I loved it when they fought but you knew deep down that they loved each other. And they did. There relationships gets mended as well.
Ending: In the end, this story pulls together nicely and I can say that I truly love this series. Every moment of growth, every single questions is put to the test, surviving under great circumstances. I like the way it end, leaving the reader with hope and a satisfying ending.
Consume covers an impressive range of emotions and growth. It gathers all questions raised giving the reader well executed answers. Admirable writing with great characters, Consume is awesome.

This is one of my favorite series of last year and this year. I've been dying to see how this story was going to end, and scared that it wouldn't end well. I need not have worried. This was an amazing final installment to the story. A really great ending to the series.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

I absolutely loved what the author did with this story. With the way the last one ended, with Tristan being turned by Savannah, I knew it would present some challenges, and boy was I not wrong on that. I loved the fact that the two of them have an internal connection now, could hear one another's thoughts. It created an intimacy that was so romantic, and gave them an even greater connection to one another. Yet, there were still problems that kept you in suspense to see how things would turn out for them.
I have always loved Tristan as a character, but I love him even more now as you get to watch him struggle to learn his new life, figure out how to be a vampire and contain his urges. And then I love Savannah. She's so smart and so spunky, and is willing to take on everything in order to save the people she loves.
Another great thing about this one was that some people you always thought were enemies become friends. This was a great twist, and I love seeing villains reconciled.
The fight scene at the end was amazingly suspenseful. There were definitely some unexpected twists there too, and I was on the edge of my seat for the last third of the book. This was a really great story all around, and I loved the writing. I'll be looking for this author's next project in suspenseful anticipation!

. 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.Was this review helpful?

Savannah's mother was a member of The Clann and her dad is a vampire. They fell in love, got married, and had Savannah, who is a dhampir - half human, half vampire. She has been carefully watched as she grew, by both The Clann, who have been anything but pleasant to her, and vampires, both wary, both fearful of what she would become. She and Tristan fell in love, and with Tristan being a member of The Clann and Savannah being a vampire, their relationship was forbidden and they have faced almost insurmountable problems trying to find a way to be together. Finally, after they have found a way to be together, a devastating, evil, and tragic event threatens to tear them apart for good, and though they are finally side by side, they find themselves further away from each other than they have ever been. One thing leads to another and Savannah and Tristan find themselves in the midst of a vampire/Clann full-fledged war. They are now on the run with Savannah's mom and dad, and Tristan's pregnant sister after a brutal attack that has set in motion a series of event that without intervention, will only result in total devastation for all involved, including innocent humans.
While Consume focused a good bit on the relationship between Tristan and Savannah and the things they were each going through, as well as the strained relationship with their families, there is also fighting, battle scenes, and other action, culminating in a battle to end all battles. Lives are lost, friendship is tested, and choices must be made, which force both Tristan and Savannah to realize what is really important to them and what they are willing to sacrifice for it. I really liked the way Melissa Darnell ended the series and I thought she did a wonderful job tying things together and bringing closure, as well as leaving you with a feeling of hope and satisfaction as to where the characters would be headed in the future. If you enjoy paranormal romance, then The Clann Series definitely has that. I also liked Melissa Darnell's take on vampires, which is different. That combined with The Clann element and magic, as well as other supernatural beings, which are shapeshifters called The Keepers, adds another creative element to the story, and is something that I would recommend checking out.

This is book 3 in the ‘The Clann’ series, and picks up a couple of hours after the end of book 2 ‘Covet’.
**Warning – some unavoidable spoilers for books 1 & 2 ‘Crave’ and ‘Covet’.**
Tristan is now a vampire, his father has just been killed, his sister is pregnant, and it looks like a war is about to break out between the vampires and The Clann.
Can Savanna help Tristan with his bloodlust? How long will it be before he regains his memories? Who will take over the Clann with Tristan turned? And can Savanna and Tristan stop the fighting before it’s too late?
This was an okay story, but again, I found it dragged, and I got a bit bored.
Savanna and Tristan had obstacles to overcome in this one, which considering their biggest hurdle had just been smashed by Tristan becoming a vampire, was a bit annoying. This time Tristan and Savanna were arguing because Tristan wanted to kill the new Clann leader, whilst Savanna said that he shouldn’t because he would have to live with that guilt for eternity. Thus, relations between these two were frosty at best, for almost the entire book, so if you were hoping for romance? Look somewhere else.
The rest of the storyline in this book was okay, but so much of the book was just dull. The obvious storylines were Tristan dealing with becoming a vampire, and Savanna and co. dealing with the new head of the Clann, and unfortunately the rest of the storyline was taken up with people arguing, and travelling around in an RV. Not exactly riveting stuff unfortunately.
There were a couple of surprises in this one, including one that I must have somehow missed at the end of book 2. None of these surprises were all that interesting though, and as the story dragged on and on, with people arguing over dirty cups, and dogs, and other inconsequential stuff, I did get bored. I wanted action! I wanted romance! I wanted something to keep me on the edge of my seat or get my heart beating, and instead I got drudgery.
The ending of this one was okay, if a little too perfect. It was an ending though, no cliff-hanger here, and having finished all I can really say is that I’m glad to be finished. This series has gone seriously downhill in my opinion, and I have no intentions of ever revisiting this one again unfortunately.
Overall; a disappointing and dull end to the series.
5 out of 10.
