Devoted by Hilary Duff Review 3/5

Overall Impression: My overall thoughts on this book? Interestingly weird, and Devoted by Hilary Duffweirdly interesting. I know it makes no sense, neither does this book.

Yet another novel I finished at 5am. 😛
This is the second book in the Elixir series that is co-written by the celebrity Hilary Duff and another writer called Elise Allen. To be completely honest I wasn’t very keen on the first book, but I decided to read Devoted anyway as I was curious to see where the storyline would go.
It was an interesting experience, especially since I could barely remember what happened in the first book! But luckily about a third of the novel was recapping so some of the details did start to come back to me.

Please note: For those of you that haven’t read the first book Elixir this review may contain spoilers about previous plots and characters in the series. However, for those of you who have read the previous book, this review will not contain any major spoilers about the book Devoted. 🙂

Sage has been taken, yet Clea is certain he is still alive and will stop at nothing to find him. Together with her friend Ben, she enters into an uneasy alliance with Cursed Vengeance, an ancient faction that can help lead them to Sage. But Clea must get to Sage before Cursed Vengeance does, or risk his death at their hands. And with Ben’s role in Sage’s kidnapping – and their past lives – Clea questions whether he can be counted on at all, and if she’s really saving Sage…or just leading them to repeat their disastrous pasts all over again.

Whoa, so that blurb pretty much tells you what the entire 350 pages are about from Clea’s perspective. What it doesn’t tell you however, is Continue reading
