Teardrop by Lauren Kate

Posted by Angel kk at Thursday, October 17, 2013

The much anticipated new series from YA author Laruen Kate will hit the shelfs in bookshelf on the 22/10/13. I have been lucky enough to be given a ARC to read and review. As a fan of Lauren Kate's previous work, I was very excited to read this one and see what she would do with the myth of Atlantis.

Teardrop is the story of, a seemingly normal teenage girl Eureka's who is struggling with her fragile mental health after, the breakup of her family unit, her father remarrying and a heartbreaking death in a freak accident in which she has survived. As a result Eureka has become withdrawn and lives with survivor's guilt. As Eureka tries to deal with the world around her the best she can, her life is changed again when she meets Ander.

Ander is not quite what he seems and has a habit of appearing and disappearing. As a character, he is intriguing and dynamic. He has a mysterious vibe going on throughout the story which is aided by his appearing and disappearing .

The Visual images throughout this story, help to ground the reader and feel part of the story. At times I felt like I was there with the characters in that scene feeling the same things they felt, seeing the same things they saw. I am so excited for the next instalment of this series.

Teardrop is an incredible start to what promises to be an amazing series. Dynamic characters and a great story. If you are looking for something different, if you are a fan of Kate's or have never read anything by her pick up Teardrop when it released on October 22 2013.

Remember Never ever cry.

Synopsis

Never, ever cry. . . . Eureka Boudreaux's mother drilled that rule into her daughter years ago. But now her mother is gone, and everywhere Eureka goes he is there: Ander, the tall, pale blond boy who seems to know things he shouldn't, who tells Eureka she is in grave danger, who comes closer to making her cry than anyone has before.

But Ander doesn't know Eureka's darkest secret: ever since her mother drowned in a freak accident, Eureka wishes she were dead, too. She has little left that she cares about, just her oldest friend, Brooks, and a strange inheritance—a locket, a letter, a mysterious stone, and an ancient book no one understands. The book contains a haunting tale about a girl who got her heart broken and cried an entire continent into the sea. Eureka is about to discover that the ancient tale is more than a story, that Ander might be telling the truth . . . and that her life has far darker undercurrents than she ever imagined. From Lauren Kate comes an epic saga of heart-stopping romance, devastating secrets, and dark magic . . . a world where everything you love can be washed away
