Very surprised the author of this series did not go the traditional publishing route. Although there were some grammarical errors and scene jumps that were a bit too quick the overall theme, story, character progression and the progression of the relationship between Eli and Clara were all very well thought out and believable. It was especially refreshing that the story was finished up in two books rather then being drawn out to the point where the reader gets tired of the characters. Really enjoyed the amount of thought and description that went into things such as what Eli looked like, the bond and the reveries. I can honestly say I enjoyed the concept of Eli feeding off of Clara's emotions rather then being obsessed with her blood! A paranormal novel that does not revolve around vampires and werewolves for once - extremely refreshing. Very much enjoyed the story.

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 in search of answers help Clara or put her life in more jeopardy? Will they even make it to The Wall in time? When I gave my review of Devour I didn't go into much detail about the gist of the story...for fear of giving too much away. But if you are sitting at your computer reading this, then hopefully you have read Devour already and know what it's about. I was shocked to see that Shelly was only making this a 2 book series, unlike her other series' that are at least 4 books. And I just knew there was no way she could finish Eli and Clara's story in just one more book, there was no stinkin way! But I was proved wrong, oh so wrong. Could their story have continued one? Of course. Was it a good and fitting ending? Most definitely! Consume did just that…it consumed me. *cliché I know* I eagerly absorbed every word, every sentence. It was a fabulous read that had me sitting on the edge of my seat, soaking up the romance, the suspense, and the mystery. Shelly’s men, oh yes, her men are fabulous; the stuff of legends. Are there really guys like Eli out there, anywhere? Every word out of his mouth makes me melt like butter. My favorite Shelly Man is Merrick from Collide. But as I told Shelly via twitter…Eli is giving Merrick some serious competition. Consume, Consume, Consume…oh what fabulous book you are; oh the things you’ve done to me. Pick up Consume and let Eli devour you! Cause this is one journey you will not want to miss out on.

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 take a strip off of Eli the next. But don't worry ladies he makes up for it all. The book was simply amazing. Clara had it pretty rough in Consume. Though I don't want to go into what is wrong with her, way too spoilery, she handled it like a real trouper. I loved seeing Clara grow up and be willing to put it all on the line for the boy she loves. I was gripped by her love for Eli and to follow blindly the way she did. I don't think I have ever read a book where the leading lady was willing to do that. I can say I am glad she did. She is one of few characters that realizes that sometime it is better to follow and not question everything. Don't get me wrong. Clara is a very strong girl but she knows when to pull back on the reins instead of plunging head first into trouble. I honestly think Clara is one of the most level headed female characters I have ever read about. One I am sad to say goodbye to. Eli, oh man did you ever make me fall in love with you. I didn't think it was possible for me to love Eli more than I already did but I was very wrong. Can one guy be more perfect than Eli. He is just amazing. I love how he fought to save Clara, and their love. Not once was he not man enough to step forward and protect her. He took being a man to a whole new level. I can say I was in awe by his actions and his devotion to Clara. Sure there are parts that make you angry with Eli but we all know things happen for a reason. I never once doubted him and his intentions. Eli is pure goodness, but don't let that outer facade dupe you into thinking there isn't an alpha male below the surface. Seeing Eli possessive was swoon worthy. Read Consume and try to deny him his due. I am and always will be 100% TEAM ELI. Once again I have to take my hat off to Shelly for not writing your typical YA book. It is awesome to have an author who is willing to write several books without following the norm. I hate to say it but sometimes it gets annoying to read the same thing over and over again. That typical boy meets girl, boy leaves girl, girls is heartbroken and trying to figure out why said boy is doing this, then boy and girl get back together. I love that Shelly doesn't write like that. She writes a story where you see the couple grow together and become a stronger together, become a whole and complete one another. It takes a great mind to write the way she does. Though I am sorry to see the end of this series, I will keep hope that Ms. Crane will write a story about Enoch. I would love to see this Devourer be reformed. Here is to believing in Happily Ever Afters. Shelly keep writing the way you do. You are just plain amazing!

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 manage to overcome all the devastation from their pasts just by being together. Some of the people & events they encountered had me pretty worried, but every time they had a few minutes to look into each other eyes I knew they'd find a way to get through it! This is definitely a series I will want to read again and again!
