Review: Consume by Melissa Darnell

Consume (The Clann, #3) by Melissa Darnell

Publication date: August 27th, 2013
Number of pages: 384 Pgs

Purchase: Amazon | The Book Depository

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.

In Covet, Savannah had to change Tristian into a vampire to save his life. This was not a choice she decided lightly, but any other option was not possible. She was not going to lose him, so this was the only way to help him, even if the consequences of that very act may change their lives forever.
The two of them are forced to flee with her father after the Clann suddenly sees them both as the enemy and what she did, an act of betrayal to their kind.
There is a war coming. Sacrifices will need to be made. Everything is on the line... and nothing and nobody is safe, not even themselves.

This book was bittersweet because I knew it was the end and part of me didn't want it to. All good things must end at some point, unfortunately, so I was enjoy all the moments with Savannah and Tristian that we got to have during this installment.
There was so much that happened. The plot was absolutely crazy, but it was the character development that makes this story so great.  Not only for our main leads, but also with the surrounding characters such as Tristian's sister and Savannah's parents. 
We have little side stories going on during the main plot, which was nice to see other things.

These characters have continued to grow throughout each book no matter what things get thrown at them. It hasn't been a walk in the park, nor should it be, as it only makes the end even more rewarding than you ever thought possible.
The romance between Savannah and Tristian knows no bounds. They are IT for one another, if that wasn't clear by the first book, if sure is by now.
There is nothing these two would not do for another. The challenges that get thrown their way only make them stronger.

Tristian might go through the most change in this book, given his recent change. This new development was not an easy thing, he went through many things as new fledglings do, but it only makes him the best he could be.
I loved the way this series ended.  I wasn't sure how Melissa would end it, but I was definitely satisfied with the outcome of all of the storylines during this trilogy.

I look forward to what Melissa does next.  I'm a fan for life.

Thanks to Harlequin Australia for sending me a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Rating: 4.5/5
