  1. I m really loving this book because it was the first book I ve written while the characters were still in high school It was interesting and fun writing a story in the halls of a place I despised and even though it may not be like the rest of the books I ve written, it still carries the same flow and romance as the others I m a sucker for true love and that will always be a main theme of my books That being said, Eli and Clara face challenges that my other characters didn t have to face There s [...]

  3. I m seeing a pattern here with Shelly Crane that is really making me not want to pick up her books she moves things too fast In terms of developing relationships, that is Instead of the relationships she s creating and weaving making me warm and fuzzy, they make me weary and do some eye rolls.In Significance, the two main characters are hyperventilating whenever they re separated, mere days after they meet Sure, it s meant to be a paranormal book, but the believability of that relationship faile [...]

  4. UmmmIt was ok Very predictable, extremely cheesy A lot of the dialogue was unbelievable and had me rolling my eyes constantly I will admit that some of the story was able to hold my attention, but all in all I was just happy to finally be done with it.

  8. Shelly Crane amazes me Honestly, as an author she definitely knows how to hit the right spots and writes another fantastic novel Her other series Significance I thought, was completely unique but Devour seriously smashes Significance out of the water for its uniqueness.Devour follows the life of Clara, a young girl who is living with a foster home after her parents are murdered Clara attends the local high school where she sits with the popular crowd and has a popular boyfriend, who is a star wr [...]

  9. Devour is the perfect title to this book because its just to amazing and unique to not devour it lol I read the first half of this book in one night because I just couldn t put it down The main character Clara has a pretty great life to everyone else except herself Her parents are dead so she lives with the Pastor and his family She has a boyfriend who is pretty obnoxious and friends who are downright mean to anyone they deem uncool Clara puts up with all of this even though she doesn t like her [...]

  10. Devour is absolutely amazing and unique book Author tried to avoid most of those YA paranormal clich s which accompany this genre these days and created one original story and I absolutely and totally loved it Story was fast paced and author never wasted time with over describing things so I really enjoyed it Even though there were times when style of writing seemed to be a little bit simple, story was so good that I did not mind at all and I was completely smitten with this book At the beginnin [...]

  11. If you have read Significance, Accordance, Collide and Uprising, you know what an amazing writer Shelly Crane is In Devour, she has branched out into a whole new paranormal venue and it is grand and refreshing The characters and plot have great depth, and the emotions and sensations are vivid and magical Of course, in true Shelly Crane fashion, the bond between the two romantic characters is filled with angst, longing andheat This is not your typical YA paranormal romance Shelly has introduced a [...]

Shelly Crane, a brilliant author Now that that is out of the way, lets talk about Devour, a book set around Clara, a high school senior who is living with being raised by the town Pastor and his wife after her parents were tragically taken from her Clara seems to be an average student in a typical high school popular see mean group She is dating the star of the wrestling team and feeling pressure from him to do things she isn t ready for sex Not to worry, in comes the dashing, yet odd, Eli with [...]

I am thrilled to have another series by Shelly Crane There s just something about the way she writes that has me hooked before I can finish the first chapter I love how she includes things very current like favorite TV shows and bands that connect with me instantly.So Devour starts with a young girl Clara who is in highshcool and has survived some devasting losses at her age Life seems to be moving along fine until a new guy in town, Eli, brings her unexpected feelings of desire You see, she alr [...]

  14. Clara is a pretty normal girl, aside from the fact she has lost her parents and her sister never makes time for her Her friends are the typical popular kids and her boyfriend can be a smidge jealous And it doesn t help that new guy Eli has eyes for her When things in her life start getting out of control, Clara must follow her heart to find what and who matters most.There is so much I want to say about this book but if I did it would give the whole plot away I want you to read it and be surprise [...]

  15. One question Why Is Shelly Crane So Amazing She writes with such a flow of emotion and excruciating detail, but not so much it bores you Her male characters are always astounding and the females are so sweet When they re supposed to be cough Deidre I have no idea where she gets these ideas Drugs, trolls, BB s, clouds and Eli You think she s about to do something then she doesn t and something completely different happens.While I was reading this, I went through a major adrenalin rush and I kinda [...]

  16. I just couldn t click with this book The romance didn t pull me in What I did like was that there was growth in the main character She started of being an follower and gained confidence as the story progressed I think everyone wishes they could go back to their high school years and stand up for ourselves and not care so much what people think I know I do.

  18. Wow, this is a difficult review for me to write because while there are so good things in this book the bad cancelled them out Thus, my reasoning for the 2 star review.Clara came home from the movies to find her parents murdered 3 months ago Her older sister re enlists in the armed forces and she goes to live with her pastor s family while she finishes her senior year Although Clara has suffered a tragic loss, she manages to find goodness in the world She has a boyfriend, Nate who is the captain [...]

Bad I m surprised I didn t give it 1 star Seriously I m amazed that I actually finished this book Clara annoyed me so much So much I hated the pace of the book I felt like Clara s change was too fast but I let that go because I was busy choking on the romance that was being forced down my throat gah Annoying I was really disappointed because I expected so much from Shelly Crane I won t give up on you Shelly It s me and you forever Well that s if you don t write books like this Not as bad as Lau [...]

  21. I have been Devoured This book was amazing from beginning to end The characters grab your attention and keep it until the very last sentence is read Up until a week ago I had never read anything written by Shelly Crane, but after quickly catching up in the Significance series and having the opportunity to read the arc of Devour, I won t think twice to read anything written by her in the future DEVOUR will be released November 8th 2011

  22. Seriously I read this in one day Shelly is an amazing author and i just Devour her books I loved this series and adored Clara and Eli s relationship Can not wait for the next one It is a great read but the significance series is still my favorite but I would recomend this book along with her other books to anyone who loves to read.

  23. Could Eli be any mysterious The moment that i read about Eli s description and how Clara looked up to see him, I was hooked I started reading this last night and finished reading it this afternoon I loved this book to the point of rereading it again today I can t wait to read book two I Highly Recommended this book

  25. LOVING this book cant wait where this series will go What hit home was CBs realization that she was trying to fulfill everyone s idea of who she should be and not who she was Totally could realate to that when I was a Senior in h.s Where were book like this in 1999

  26. The great thing about Shelly Crane is she knows how to write about love And Eli and Clara are no exception But even than the love was the great way she weaved their story with supernatural and human issues After this book I immediately started Consume.

  27. Fantastic I couldn t put it down the book was in a perfect balance with the reality of Life and the reality of the whole Supernatural spectrum reality The tragedy that Clara experienced that pushed her to Eli was something real And the whole thing with the romance was moving at a steady realistic pace You can really relate to Clara it was set in a sort of end of High School time it had humor, romance, some pretty good make out scenes, irony, betrayal, inspiration I guarantee you will be one of t [...]

  28. Oh my I absolutely devoured Devour This addition to works created by a rising star of an author, Shelly Crane, blew me away It s a fresh take no vampires charming the school girl or preppy boy wooing the damsel in distress Instead Devour is based on something newer to the word of Young Adult readings Devourers What drew me to this lovely read was not just the fact that in less then a year Shelly Crane has become a favorite author of mine but how different and catching this book is Clara is your [...]
