Devoted By Hillary Duff
Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers October 11, 2011 Hardcover
Since Sage was kidnapped, Clea has no way of knowing if he is alive or dead. And even though she has only just discovered they were soulmates, she feels like a part of her is lost forever. What's worse, she can't even turn to her best friend Ben Since Sage was kidnapped, Clea has no way of knowing if he is alive or dead. And even though she has only just discovered they were soulmates, she feels like a part of her is lost forever. What's worse, she can't even turn to her best friend Ben-because every time she looks at him, all she sees is his betrayal.
But waiting for something to happen is not an option, so Clea is ready for action. Suffering through dreams of seeing Sage with another woman, she makes an uneasy alliance with Sage's enemies and sets out to be reunited with Sage...in this life or the next.
I was truly upset after reading this book. I longed to read more about Sage and Clea! I wanted to indulge in it just a little longer however Sage and Clea were never together until the last few pages of the book. I don't think I have ever hated a book so much in my life! I think its because I had high hopes for it considering I raved about Elixir to friends and anyone who was willing to listen. I found the story this time around to be quite boring. In the last book, every page I turned I was excited and wanted to read more. With this book I found myself finding any excuse to put it down I even almost gave up on reading it entirely.
Maybe i'm being to harsh on this book but it really wasnt what I expected. There wasnt even any mentions of the search for her father really?? Clea gave up that quickly and moved on once Sage dissapeared! I dont know about you but I would look for both of them, not accept the fact my father is gone now that im too busy looking for my boyfriend. It seems like it's a joke! The ending killed it for me, before I got to the last few pages I figured the next book will be better however the ending ruined that thought.
I WILL NEVER LOOK AT SAGE THE SAME WAY AGAIN !!!
This series is done for me
I gave this book 2/5 bookmarks
