Elixir

When you think of Hilary Duff, you automatically think 'Lizzie McGuire', right? So, it's probably weird for you to think that she's written a book--well, at least, I did.

Elixir was captivating, and not anything that I'd imagine Hilary Duff could write. I'm not dissing her, but it's just that I thought this would be some stupid story about a snobby-rich girl. True, the main character, Clea, was rich, but I didn't get the sense that she was snobby at all.
She was a pretty cool protagonist, and I liked her rational-way of thinking. To be honest, she thought things out more thoroughly than I would have! Me, I would have jumped and freaked at just about every turn of events (I mean, taking a snapshot of your room and seeing some strange dude standing in your closet would have me screaming like a banshee and running out of the house).
True, the story line kind of reminded me of Alyson Noel's Immortals series a little bit, but I filed all my negative comments away, in order to stop comparing all the characters.
The book was entrancing, and I finished it in under a day. I enjoyed it through-and-through, and although the ending is a little disappointing, I think there is going to be a second one in the near future (although I can't find any information on it...yet).
I suggest that every person who likes strange tales of love give this book a try. Set aside your views/opinions on the new author, and give her a shot (without envisioning Lizzie Maguire's little animated character writing this book on an overly-sized computer).

The beginning of this book is well thought out and written. Though I am thoroughly unsatisfied with the second half of this book. The main character suddenly decides she is in love with no preamble or even much dialouge with Sage. Not to mention the photograth mystery is never explain. Just an errant thought about what it might be and nothing more. Even worse was the ending which in no way tied up the main issue of the book which is finding Clea's father. Actually this concept is given up after finding the place where her father's clues ran out. How could a person give up with no thought other than of Sage? I personally would not continue to read this if a sequel came out. To many loose ends leaving the reader questing.
