This review may be a little confusing as I have mixed feelings about this book, I hope you'll bear with me:) Let us begin. I was a little over halfway through this book when Theresa first contacted me to do book reviews(Thank you Theresa!) I thought 'this is great, I can do a review of Elixir'. Especially because of the number of one star reviews this book had. At the time I was in love with this book, thought it deserved 5 big stars. Then I finished it. And it went from 5 to 3 stars.

I still think this was a good book and there are a lot of things I liked. I really enjoyed that although the main character Clea was 17 she was homeschooled, which changed things up from the stereotypical highschool setting of most YA novels. Her parents career ( her father is a surgeon and her mother is a politician) and Clea's own career (a photojournalist) made things more versatile. For instance when she suddenly wanted to travel to Rio it was much more believable than in most books. I also just loved the concept that she kept seeing this guy in the photos she took though I felt the way it played out was kind of odd.

Now for some things I wasn't crazy about: *THAR BE SPOILERS AHEAD!*

As I said I loved this book until I got to the end. As I read the last page I flipped through the pages and checked the binding of the books for rips... Know why? Cause this book had no ending! I don't mean to be harsh there really was no ending. The main characters finally confess their love, they find this place they were looking for then suddenly the hero is kidnapped and the book ends abruptly with the main character on a plane back home (away from the hero). That's not an ending, I need more! LoL. But really, I understand this is the first in a series but you have to have some sort of resolution. The ending reads like Miss Duff forgot to write the last chapter. Another thing I couldn't believe, the mystery in this book was the characters looking for Clea's missing father and guess what? They never found him. 330 pages and nothing. They didn't even get any closer to finding him though I suppose(or hope) that the mystery is resolved in the sequel. One other thing I didn't like was that only Miss Duff's name appears on the cover when the novel was written by her and Elise Allen but I assume this was a decision of the publishing company not Hilary Duff's. Still I think all authors names should appear on the cover of the book they wrote.

Some things I didn't mind but you might:

The first 80 pages or so are mostly back story, while I don't mind that, I even prefer it sometimes. I know some people might not.
Though the synopsis makes a big deal of the love triangle, it's really in Clea's past lives that the love triangle takes place not so much in the present.

Lastly I encourage you not to dismiss this book immediately just because it was written by a celebrity. Aside from the way it ended, I enjoyed this book and look forward to reading the sequel.
Clea Raymond, a seventeen-year-old photojournalist, has an opportunity to go to Brazil on assignment. For a year now, she's wanted to visit the place where her father disappeared. Talk to people who'd been with him in his last days. Before she's to leave, she discovers a face that continually appears in her photos. It's the same guy from her nightmares. Things cross into bizarre land when she and her friend, Ben, meet this same guy face to face in Rio. The connection between the three sounds eerily like Kirsten Miller's THE ETERNAL ONES until Clea discovers her father's interest in something called the Elixir of Life. It is said that the potion can cure diseases. If enough is consumed, a person can live forever. This might have been what caused his disappearance. Believing there's a chance he's still alive, the three set off to try and find him. What she discovers isn't her father, but the centuries old bond that draws the three together in a dangerous love-triangle.

In a sentence, I loved the story, but I can't in good conscience give the book a five out of five rating and here's why. The writing is too generic in spots. Sure, there's only so many ways you can describe something, but try to be unique in the phrasing. I've grown to hate the phrases like "chiseled features" and "he said, incredulously."

Another problem I had was to credibility and believability--I simply didn't believe parts of Clea's life. Also, the scene where she sees someone in her closet and then goes to sleep? Please! No doubt I could complain about other parts, but I kept on reading fast and furious throughout and when the book ended in a cliffhanger, I was ready for the second installment.

Book two, DEVOTED, is scheduled to be out October 11, 2011 and I already have it on my wish list.
Vanity publishing at its worst, this under-developed highly unbelievable story centers around your average American rich and famous girl who's earned her fame by being born, apparently. Her hardships in life are that she's got two friends who follow her everywhere, she gets to travel to exotic lands without even a consent form from her mother, oh yeah, and she's often discriminated against for being privileged... how sad.

There are flashback scenes to the past rife with anachronisms. Characters are one-dimensional. And the most offensive thing of all, Duff's reviews in the mainstream media are glowing. "How refreshing to see a young woman setting a good example to America's youth" they all seem to say.

Don't buy this book. In fact, someone please review this book in a mainstream media outlet and give it what-for. Critics used to have balls in this country... That was before they were all purchased by Disney Corp. and forced to placate instead of have a legitimate opinion.
