Elixir #1: Elixir (2010)


Clea was the daughter of a surgeon and politician. her only escape from the spotlight was when she got to travel being a photojournalist, to explore even the most exotic parts of the world. but after her father disappearance, she started to notice that all the photographs she took had the same man in it, sometimes appearing in places not possible for human. when they were drawn together by the mystery of her father's disappearance, she was overwhelmed by the immediate connection that she felt with him.

having grew up with her Lizzie McGuire, i was curious about the book after seeing her name on it. unfortunately there were not much spark going on even between the love triangle of Clea, Ben and Sage. as mysterious as the story was, Sage being immortal felt predictable, and Ben's jealousy made his originally likable character detestable. as for Clea, other than her wealthy background, had no reason to have 2 guys chasing after her. despite the flaws, Clea's past lives were interesting perspectives. different era with different deaths, which brought their love story to a halt every single time.
