Review:

I hope I’ll get the approve for the ARC… I wanna know it so bad. LOL. :p

UPDATE: 12.28.12 YAY!!! Got approve for ARC!!! :)

Okay… When I first started reading this third book, I can’t remember what really happened in the second book. Yes, I also forgot what’s the title for the second book. :/ I just know that Sage’s soul is now inside Nico’s body. I don’t remember who the hell is Ben. Then I started to remember as I go on reading this book.

When I started reading the first book a year or so ago, I know that I liked it a lot. And I also know that the plot line is somewhat similar to The Immortal series of Alyson Noel and… I know there’s this other book that’s alike with this. Regardless of it being similar to The Immortals, I still liked it (yes, even The Immortals, I liked it back then.) Anyway, the plot line as I was saying was that Elixir thingy that you’ll be immortal if you drink it. And there’s a series of past life for the girl and the boy is always trying to save the girl and there’s this other boy who ALWAYS ruin things for them because that other boy’s in love with the girl.

So yeah, I had enough of those kind of plot. What I liked was that Hilary Duff took a different approach about it. Well, not that really different. Er… As I have said, Sage’s soul was now inside Nico’s body.

Hmmm… I KNOW I remember something about a ghost who helped Clea in the second book. Actually it’s a family of ghosts or souls or whatever they were called.I think it was because of drinking the Elixir. They just became a conscious projection of mind or something. That’s what I remember too about the second book. And I keep expecting she would show up again.

But no she didn’t. I can’t remember if there was a real reason as to why she can’t be shown again in the last book. True is a bit weird for me. Because honestly, I don’t really find it okay. For Sage’s soul to be in there. I mean, it’s Nico’s body. Hello? Awkward much? Even if you say that you could see Sage inside. And there’s no trace of Nico anymore. :/

The story by the way revolves around that problem, of Sage’s soul inside Nico’s. And how it’s like rejecting his soul. Okay, you read it and judge it. I don’t know what to say anymore. It’s just my opinion. I would suggest if you are not satisfy with my review that you read it and find out about it yourself. For me, it was okay. 2.5 stars.
