The fact that Eli became human made up for all of Clara's stupidity here in this book. Eli is still the same protective and kind devourer while Clara is a basket case because of her blood mixing with devourer's blood. The story revolved around mending that certain complication.
I would say that I enjoyed Devoured more than Consume, maybe because there's no Finn and Enoch. I just hated Finn for always making fun of Clara. Enoch on the other hand, is hot tempered one minute and then concerned the next. He's bewildering. I swear, they just both piss me off at every turn (except when Enoch saved them near the end . I wish there were lesser scenes with them.
All in all, I love the ending. I love that Eli became human and still retained his power to have reveries . Still a good read.
