Devoted Review

Rating: ♥♥

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 this life or the next.

First thing I have to say; Tired. Of. Freaking. SAGE. Really, Hilary, did you have NOTHING better to write about, that you had to tell us in 10 million ways, how much Clea missed Sage and just couldn't live without him in a few CHAPTERS? The first probably 4 or 5 chapters is Sage Sage SAGE, I thought Clea was searching for her father who mysteriously disappeared???

I thought this was supposed to be a continuation of Elixir, ya, it's the 2nd book in the series but in Devoted, it's all about finding Sage, it would have been so much better if Hilary had kept more with the original story of finding Clea's dad, and search for Sage on the side, not make it ALL ABOUT SAGE. Clea annoyed me so much a lot in this book. I'm amazed Ben was even willing to help her at all.

I think my favourite thing about this book was Amelia's side of the story. It was different and done better than Clea's story. Overall, Devoted was good, but could have been way better. The story line was good, but a lot of it was detailed to death to fill a blank page. The only reason Hilary Duff got a publishing deal is because she's already famous, otherwise she'd have to get a lot more writing experience before she ever made it as an author.
