When Clea suddenly encounters this man in person she is stunned--and feels an immediate and powerful connection. As they grow closer, they are drawn deep into the mystery behind her father's disappearance and discover the centuries-old truth behind their intense bond.

Review quote

"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"show more

Our customer reviews

The characters were all one-dimensional and had no character flaws; I believe the author tried to build a perfect lovable-by-all strong female protagonist, but instead she succeeded in building a whiny, annoying, overbearing, spoiled, and illogical character who doesn't have any friends her parents hadn't paid to be hanging out with her, and who needs them to wipe her butt and do all the dirty work for her while she gets the credit. She messes up situations and blames other people for it. She bosses people around when she needs to be compassionate, and then cries and collapses in the face of real danger, needing others to save her. She friendzones a guy who truly cares about her, and keeps him as a backup in case the relationship with the hotter guy doesn't work out. This whole book is seething with insta-love, terrible cliches, gaping plot holes, predictable and cringeworthy scenes and "plot twists". I feel like the author got bored with her own writing about halfway into the book, and her editor quit about two-thirds of the way in. The ending is one big hot mess, and the last chapter was just a narrative explanation of "what the hell is going on". HOWEVER! I should mention that I'm a 30-year-old. This book was clearly written for teenagers. So maybe if I was a teenager, I would have enjoyed it more.show more
