Review: "Teardrop," by Lauren Kate
Lauren Kate is most popularly known for her recent completion of The Fallen Series, and begins yet another series of books with her latest young adult novel, Teardrop. Having obviously read (and fully enjoyed) Lauren Kate's previous series of books, I just had to get my hands on her latest one. Now that I have completed the novel, I can confidently say that I have high hopes for this story as the plot and characters are riveting!
My book reviews always provide a summary of the story, but will always be spoiler free as these reviews are intended to promote the books. Below is the summary for Teardrop:
Never, ever cry... Seventeen-year-old Eureka won't let anyone close enough to feel her pain. After her mother was killed in a freak accident, the things she used to love hold no meaning. She wants to escape, but one thing holds her back: Ander, the boy who is everywhere she goes, whose turquoise eyes are like the ocean. And then Eureka uncovers an ancient tale of romance and heartbreak, about a girl who cried an entire continent into the sea. Suddenly her mother's death and Ander's appearance seem connected, and her life takes on dark undercurrents that don't make sense. Can everything you love be washed away?
Lauren Kate weaves together a story that is about so much more than just a girl and her romantic entanglements. Eureka is an interesting protagonist who is surrounded by many interesting and lovable characters and is forced to face both ordinary and surreal circumstances throughout the book that will keep you wanting to know more.
I'm personally very excited for the next novel in the series and can't wait to see how Lauren Kate's new series unfolds. If you read through Lauren Kate's previous book series then picking up her latest work should be a must!
