This is the final book in The Clann trilogy, so this review will be short in order to keep it spoiler-free for those who haven’t read the previous books. The Clann series has been an enjoyable read. It’s always hard to bid farewell to characters you’ve grown to care about; but Melissa Darnell does a good job giving closure to the characters, as well as to the readers.
Consume picks up where Covet (The Clann #2) left off, and I was captivated by what was taking place with a particular transformation in the story; but, unfortunately, this part of the character’s journey ended entirely too soon, and the story wavered a bit for me in this final book.
The Clann, the Descendants, blood pharming, and blood memories are a few of the things that make this series an intriguing read. Some readers will enjoy the in-depth look into the characters’ internal struggles, but I am an impatient reader and could hardly wait to get to the upcoming battle and see a certain character get their just desserts. All in all, I am very pleased that Ms. Darnell has created a very good series to put into the hands of my young teen – it is exciting but remains clean and age-appropriate. A welcome addition to my daughter’s library.
My Rating: ★★★
