Release Date: Out now!

Publisher: HarlequinTeen

Pages: 384pgs

The Story

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 the all-consuming bond they share. To fight for peace, they must forge a new trust and risk everything to take down their deadliest enemy, even as they must run for their lives. Soon they will learn that some bonds are stronger than love—and some battles cannot be won without sacrifice.

The Review

A big thanks to Harlequin Australia for sending me a review copy of this book!

CONSUME is the final installment in The Clann trilogy, so I'll be pretty brief with this review and be spoiler-free in case any of you have yet to read this series. But over the course of this young adult series, I have absolutely loved and enjoyed the first two books and the over world the author has created, and in regards to this particular final book, while it was not necessarily my favourite book of all three books, but I certainly still enjoyed it as we learn how everything concludes in the end for all characters involved and see where they all end up.

In terms of what I thought about the third and final book, CONSUME, it definitely answered most of the questions that I had running in my head from the previous two books. It definitely did that. But as much as I enjoyed it and the characters as well, but this time I felt like there needed to be something more to the book . . . I don't know . . . perhaps more oomph from the character themselves. So while there is still plenty going on in this book and this whole war thing between certain enemies, but in the back of my mind I still felt like nothing much happened in the book (apart from what Tristan is currently going through) and everyone seemed to be arguing over inconsequential stuff really. But again, the book is still an enjoyable read and it will be the same for you if you have started the series as the finale will definitely give you a conclusion you are looking for in the end and I'm happy about that.

Overall, CONSUME may not have been the best book in the series, but I'm glad to have finished it and learn what happened to some of my favourite characters.

The Rating
3/5 stars
