Elixir (Elixir #1)
When fate brings Clea and this man together, she is stunned by the immediate and powerful connection she feels with him. As they grow closer, they are drawn deep into the mystery behind her father’s disappearance, and they discover the centuries old truth behind their intense bond. Torn by a dangerous love triangle and haunted by a powerful secret that holds their fates, together they race against time to unravel their pasts in order to save their lives—and their futures.
Though it is not the main focus, I loved that Clea is a photographer. I especially enjoyed that despite her high socialite status, she was not just handed the job, but instead had to submit under a fake name to even be considered for publication (this is really a minor part of the story, but I felt that it gave Clea quite a bit of character development. It told me that even though she was a celebrity, she was willing to work for what she wanted). On the other hand, I found it strange that the daughter of a surgeon and a politician would gain so much media attention.
This aside, I enjoyed the book. Clea’s dreams captivated me. I turned page after page wanting to find out
why she was dreaming of the man in her photos, and why she was someone new in each of these dreams, and why each of these women meets a fatal end.
Overall, I was extremely pleased with this book and may be less likely to harshly judge young actors/actresses who publish a novel (at least until after I’ve read said novel). I am now one of the many anxiously waiting for a sequel. I hate when books end on a cliffhanger (this one does) because I am left with an earnest need to find out what happens to the characters (which I know is the point). Because of this, there is a good chance that I will be picking up Duff and Allen's Devoted soon after it comes out.
YES she did and SUPRISE SUPRISE - its great!
ELIXIR is a great YA novel especially if you want love and paranormality in one book! Yes, it is a rather different mix of genres but its great!
The main character - CLEA is seventeen years old and a photojournalist who is still trying to find who she is, I find Clea alittle boring as the main character.
Ben - Clea's best friend is pretty cool.
Rayna - Clea's other best friend is awesome - all she wants to do is party and find cute boys!
Sage - Clea's soulmate. A very strange dude.
I definitly recommend this book! Happy reading!
