Devoted is the sequel to 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 an unnamed trilogy by Duff and Allen. After the release of Elixir in 2010, Duff stated that she intended to write more in the series. She said, however, that nothing had been put down as yet and that she and her co-writer, Allen, were simply playing around with different ideas. 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". Devoted was released on October 11, 2011. In an interview with MTV, Duff stated that "Devoted picks up basically where Elixir left off, and Clea has a lot of big questions to answer and decisions to make." 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."
