Highly Recommended. Clea Raymond found her mysterious and handsome soulmate Sage and discovered that they have loved for many past lives, all of which have ended tragically. But there are dark forces in the world that want to destroy Sage and the elixir that runs in his veins. When Sage is taken, Clea believes that he is still alive and will not stop at anything until she finds him. With Clea's friend, Ben, she makes an uneasy alliance with Cursed Vengeance, an ancient group that can help them to Sage. Clea must found Sage before Cursed Vengeance does or risk his death at their hands. Due to their past lives - and Ben's role in Sage's kidnapping - Clea questions whether she can count on Ben and if she really is saving Sage or just leading them to repeat their disastrous past lives again.
I felt so heartbroken for Clea for the dreams she is being forced to have. I really enjoyed this book; it's been beautifully crafted and compelling. I couldn't put it down and found it to be a great visual feast. Devoted is stunning, just love it.
