Review quote

"Hilary Duff's Elixir is good medicine. a novel this good is just begging for a big-screen adaptation. After gulping up "Elixir," I'm ready for another dose." -Amy Wilkinson at MTV.com "I can honestly say that when I came to the last page of the novel I was sad. I didn't want the story to end, and am excited at the thought of a second novel. Clea's story is so captivating that i felt like i was living in her world and watching it unfold before my eyes. Elixir is so far the best book I've read in 2010!" -Alex at "Twilight Series Theories" "The dialogue was great. I really connected with it, because as a teen I know what it's like to read a forced attempt of an adult trying to sound like a teen--and there was none of that in this book. Hilary's voice was great! I loved the fluidity of her words." -Esmerelda at "Dreamz of a YA Writer" "Elixir will work...for fans of Lisa McMann's Wake trilogy: ...the dream elements, the idea of the incubus, and the mystery will appeal to these readers." -stacked.blogspot.com "HilaryDuff has given paranormal a whole new spin. "Elixir"""has a fresh voice, greatplot twists and an ending that left me wanting the next book in the series...when [both] the plot twists and the love triangle intensify with Clea, Sage and Ben, Iwas hooked and couldn't stop reading it. A powerful centuries-old secretreveals some character twists, uncovers a great mythology and makes for afascinating plot." -mundiemoms.com
