Keegan has dealt with a lot over the last two years: Death, black magic and the loss of her bond to her chosen mate. But on her eighteenth birthday, the bond with Rourk returns.

Rourk longs to be by her side. Though he knows the distance between them causes Keegan physical pain, he wants to give her the time she needs.

Now, Keegan faces her hardest decision. Tradition requires elves marry at eighteen. If she accepts the path laid out for her, she will be spared a lifetime of physical and emotional pain. But will that life ever really be her own?

You have always been the one for me, Keegan.

Consumed, the last book in the amazing trilogy of Keegan’s Chronicles by Julia Crane..I was dreading you, not wanting to say goodbye to the characters I have learned to love. But Julia did not disappoint in this last installment. She gave her readers an ending they will love, and her characters an ending they more than deserved.

Consumed picks up right where Conflicted left us, Keegan and Rourke’s bond has been brought back! Keegan was dating Donald the whole time the bond was gone, she was very much happy with Donald, but now that the bond is back, she knows she can’t refuse Rourke or deny the instant connection she feels for him..she knows her relationship with Donald is no more. While mending her relationship with Rourke, Keegan is still having difficulties with the dark magic that runs through her veins, and because of this dark magic instead of just being in slight pain when Rourke is far away from her, she is in agonizing pain..elves by tradition are supposed to get married once they turn 18..If she accepts the path laid out for her, she will be spared of physical and emotional pain, but will that life ever really be her own?

I was so nervous going into Consumed, even though I knew Julia would provide me with an amazing story, I was immensely afraid of not getting the ending I hoped for. Thank goodness though that Julia gave me exactly what I wanted and more! Consumed provided the perfect ending for what has been an amazing series.

Not only did Consumed end beautifully for Keegan our main character, it also ended beautifully for other characters I learned to love Donald, Thaddeus, Anna, Lauren, Tommy and a few others, so seeing them happy in the end also? Mad ME happy! I especially loved the added relationship of Anna and Tommy, I always felt bad for Tommy and Anna, and always loved each of them as characters, they were both funny, and very caring friends, Julia putting them together made my heart all warm and fuzzy with happiness for them!

Not only did this book fill me with happiness over the ending, it also made me insanely happy to see a lot of the characters grow, especially Keegan. At the end of Consumed I felt she had changed a lot from the beginning of the series, and even just from the beginning of Consumed, this may sounds cheesy, but I feel she was really shaping into a nice young lady at the end of Consumed compared to being a girl/kid/teen.

Overall this series has been such an enjoyable one, it’s sad to think it is already over, but even though I am sad this series is over, I am so happy I got to read it. Julia’s Keegan’s Chronicles series is one that should be enjoyed by everyone.  Goodbye Keegean, Rourke, Anna, Tommy, Thaddeus and Donald, you will be missed! <3
