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.
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 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.
I give it 5 BITES!
