Book Review by Hush Hush Biz Book Reviewer Jamie Campbell.
In the third instalment of the series, Consume begins with lovestruck teenagers Savannah and Tristan fresh from escaping a clann war. Dealing with his newly turned vampire status, they await the return of Tristan’s memories to quell the bloodlust.
As they return to their hometown, the vampires are confronted by the hostile clann they left behind. With tensions between the two races mounting, their hopes of settling into a normal life again quickly evaporate.
Thrust into a brand new war with the treaty broken by a horrible and grisly death of a clann member. Framed for the murder, Savannah and Tristan go on the run with their family.
However, when forced to return to enemy territory, their only hopes of survival lay with dethroning the new clann leader and proving their innocence once and for all.
Consume is told from the perspective of both Savannah and Tristan, changing frequently between the two. While this can get jolting and confusing at times, it doesn’t take away the growing sense of inevitability.
While yet another vampire story, Consume puts the humanity back into the demons. Darnell makes the concept believable, even though it’s supernatural.
The romance between Savannah and Tristan is sweet and heartfelt, ensuring to keep lovers of romance happy too. If you’re looking for a good vampire book, Consume is for you.
