Review: Elixir (Elixir #1) by Hilary Duff, Elise Allen

Clea Raymond has felt the glare of the spotlight her entire life. The daughter of a renowned surgeon and a prominent Washington DC politician, she has grown to be a talented photojournalist who takes refuge in a career that allows her to travel to the most exotic parts of the world. But after Clea’s father disappears while on a humanitarian mission, Clea’s photos begin to feature eerie, shadowy images of a strange and beautiful man—a man she has never seen before.

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.

  I absolutely love this book. The author has a good talent for bringing the story and all it's plot points together. I could not put this book down for the life of me. My family is grateful it only took me a day to buzz through it. They were getting a little hungry... The characters become very endearing and sweet. At least some of them do. There are always villains afoot. The thrills and chills really had me hanging on every word. She weaves an intricate, entangled web of mystery. Centuries of haunted truths and a soul wrenching, intense true undying love. This is one of my new favorite books. I cannot wait to read the next in this series. Very, very highly recommend. I loved it and could not get enough of it.

  1. I love to read and if the book is really good I can finish it in one day. I am a new follower of your blog thru GFC, Twitter and RSS Feed. I could not follow on FB because of a FB blog hop 2 weeks ago. I was "liking" away and I think I got to 10 sites then all of a sudden a box pops up saying I am spamming and they suspended my FB for 15 days! I am hoping today will be 15. It is if you count the weekends. I don't know because I can't get anyone to answer my questions. The people who run FB are very rude! At least answer the emails that are urgent. I lost alot of entries into contests along with not being able to follow anyone on FB or Networked Blogs. And for what??? Because I was on a FB only blog hop and we all signed up so that means you gave everyone permission to come over. That was something that was none of their business. They have criminals using the internet for porn and all kinds of dirty crap and they pick on a blogger??? Anyway, I am keeping a list of the bloggers who are going ahead and following FB now so they don't have to come back and once it is lifted I will go and follow all of you back. Or you can wait and let me follow you first. Whatever makes you comfortable is fine. Thanks for your help and have a great weekend.
