Devoted by Hilary Duff (Elixir #2)
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. From Goodreads.
This was definitely faster paced then the first book of the trilogy. There were more secrets unveiled and more lies to help with the secrets. This time around there was another family that had taken some water from the Fountain of Youth, of course I won’t tell you what happened but what they need Sage for more than just breaking his soul mate bound with Clea.
Clea is upset because she can’t get over how Ben tried to protect her but ended up getting Sage caught and taken away from her. While she is on the run to find a group that want Sage just as much as she does but only to break the curse that doesn’t allow them to live past 30. She needs them to save him but everyone wants to kill him for his blood now.
Ben is trying to get over Clea and at the same time show penance for all the bad things in his lifetimes that he has done to her and Sage. Rayna wasn’t in this book too much but even though she is a big part in Clea’s life, she is going to school so she has to go and misses all the craziness that happens around Clea, Ben and Sage.
I didn’t think life could get more complicated but the end of the book showed me that the final book in the trilogy was going to be super complicated. If they were people in the real world I would honestly feel so much sympathy for them. I can’t wait to see what happens in the last book.
I gave this book 4 out of 5 stars.
