Book Review #319 - Elixir (Elixir #1) by Hilary Duff

Elixir (Elixir, #1)

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.
My Rating: 2.5/5
When I first started reading this book several months ago I was captivated by it and found the whole plot really interesting.
I must have read 3/4 of it within the day I started it. Then I hit a wall. I just didn't want to read it anymore. The plot just got too weird for me to follow properly.
When I picked up the book again today to finish it, it had been that long since I last read it that I was really confused.
I have never read any William Shakespeare and so that could also be another reason why it didn't make any sense to me. It seemed to reference to him a lot.
I really don't see myself continuing on with this series, but am open to reading other books by Hilary Duff.
