Devoted is the sequel to the New York Times bestselling novel Elixir by American entertainer Hilary Duff with Elise Allen. It was published and released to booksellers on October 11, 2011. It is the second in a series of books that Duff is committed to do.

Creation Process

After the release of Elixir in 2010, Duff stated that she would write a couple of sequels to Elixir, all in collaboration with Allen. In an interview with CosmoGirl!, she said: "Clea has been on an emotional rollercoaster, so that is probably where the next book will start. Clea will need to find a way to pick her self up and put the pieces of her life back together. Who knows how long that could take? And what her next move will be? Hopefully her dreams will guide her. IF she can dream.". However, she said that nothing had not been put down as yet and that she and her co-writer, Allen, were simply playing around with different ideas.[1] On October 18 2010, Duff posted on Twitter about a sequel: "Can't believe so many people have read the book already! Yipeeee! Starting the next one in two weeks".[2] Devoted, hit the book shelves on October 11, 2011.[3]

In an interview with MTV, Duff said that "'Devoted' picks up basically where 'Elixir' left off, and Clea has a lot of big questions to answer and decisions to make."[4] She also said that plans for the third and final book in the trilogy were being discussed and that "I don't think it will be as long. It will be a wrap up, kind of where they are now and what exactly happened to the Elixir, whose hands it's in, what ends up happening with Sage."[4]
