Books One - Three of the Devour Series by New York Times Bestselling Author Shelly Crane. Eli comes to town and shakes up Clara's perfect little life. He feeds off emotions, but hers are so much more than what he's ever felt before. And then all hell breaks loose when his kind, and his insane brother, find out. A rebellion brews, bonds form with witches and elves, ready to fight for their mates.
Clara has it all.
A wrestling star boyfriend, popular friends, all the right school activities...pretty much a perfect life...up until her parents died. Now she lives with the Pastor and his family and though they take good care of her, she feels alone. Then her boyfriend, Tate, starts to show signs of trouble when a new guy, Eli, comes to town.
Clara is fascinated with him, but hides it until something happens. Eli confesses that she gives him something he's never had before...something he needs. He feeds off emotions, but hers are so much more than what he's ever felt before. Everything is about to change for this normal, pretty, popular girl in a supernatural way.
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. But the ever annoying but strangely prophetic bird begins to become more of a chatter box and Eli learns something that could change some things. Not just for him and Clara, but Devourers everywhere. Then an unexpected guest forces Eli to flee with Clara, leaving her temporary family behind. She is thrown into his world of underground 'traitors' and learns much of his past. They meet many new people and creatures along the way to freedom. But when tragedy strikes the two, will Clara see the monster in Eli? Can she handle his strange world and awful past? Will one of them lose their life forever...
Enoch is tested. His brother is human, the thing he hates. He watches as the brother he knew is stripped away by his love for Clara. He's never hated someone as much as he hated her...but the bond forced him to not only want to protect her, but feel things he never had before. When a girl needs his help, that split second decision changes his whole world in one instant.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I wasn't sure how to rate this series. I purchased the boxed set and read all three books at once. The storyline is original and one I haven't heard of before. The set was 512 pages on my nook. The first two books were about Eli and Clara. This had a sort of an over the top feel for me. Like the ex-boyfriend was really crazy and the "mean" girl was absurdly mean. Some fantasy books have a "real" feel to them. Even though it's paranormal, it's written so well you think it could actually happen. This wasn't one of those books for me. The third book especially fell flat for me. I had a hard time even buying into Enoch and Fay falling in love in the first place. Clara was really silly in this book. She annoyed me to death. When you find out why she acted the way she did, it still didn't make any sense to me. Plus, the devourers are suppose to be pure evil, right? Well, they never acted pure evil to me. Not even in the very first book. I mean, I know what I think of when someone is described as pure evil and its not this. And if Enoch was so evil and no one trusted him, why would they allow him in the camp??? A lot of the books didn't make sense to me having said all of that. I still read the entire series and wanted to know how it ended. For that, I give 3.5 stars.
Kinda had a Twilighty feel to it but I wish there were more!
