"Since Sage was kidnapped, Clea has no way of knowing if he is alive or dead. And even though she has only just discovered they were soulmates, she feels like a part of her is lost forever. What’s worse, she can’t even turn to her best friend Ben—because every time she looks at him, all she sees is his betrayal.But waiting for something to happen is not an option, so Clea is ready for action. Suffering through dreams of seeing Sage with another woman, she makes an uneasy alliance with Sage’s enemies and sets out to be reunited with this life or the next."

Plot: You know this wasn't exactly my favorite plot. It began REALLY slow and didn't become addicting until  the very end. Even though it's ending was very WTF?! But I imagine, this was another build up book. A book that explains what is going on, gives you a little drama here and there and a huge cliff hanger so you will read the next book.
Characters: The addition of the orginal Elixir family was indeed interesting and having the story told through Clea and the little girl Amelia was refreshing. However, I wanted Amelia to not talk as much and I want more of Clea and the other characters. Clea is Clea, she is a very generally likeable charcter. I liked that we see a change in Ben's personality, although a little frustrating  at times, deep down he is still the old Ben.
Pros: Major Cliffhanger, quick read, unique storyline, romance
Cons: Slower Plot, not as well written.
Final Thoughts: Until the last 100 pages, I didn't really like the sequel to Elixir. Which for me was sad, given HOW much I LOVED Elixir. Something about the plot and writing seemed more thrown together then well thought through. But that could just be me, cause technically the twists have to be thought out. The ending though was insane and honestly, I don't know how I feel about this at all! I will have to see where this goes for the next book. Which I have a feeling is where Clea's best friends character Rayna will have a stronger role. Besides that the book is a decently nice read and shouldn't keep you from enjoying the series.
