Eleanor, a timid orphan, has no clue to her real purpose, but she also has no desire to become a subservient old maid, like the miserable nuns she is forced to with. Eleanor believes Edward, whom she loves, will save her from being forced to take vows. She knows Mother Superior has no intention of letting her leave–her songs are the only thing keeping the grey mist at bay. Her devastation is complete when she discovers Edward is a prince and heir to the throne, but it is the impetus she needs to leave the safety of the abbey and go in search of her long lost father.
She doesn’t get far before discovering her true destiny. With only her instincts to protect her, she must match wits with a powerful being intent on the destruction of her world. If she does not find The Perfect Tear and release its healing power into the land, she will become an accomplice in the destruction of all she loves.
A beautiful well written story. I really enjoyed reading the perfect tear. The cover/summary of the book is what drawn me to want to read it. The cover is just beautiful.
A very interesting story from start to finish. A mix of a fantasy/historical fiction. The story is well paced read and the plot moves right along.
The characters were done very well and interesting. A few twists and turns and the story was very vivid that I could picture myself in the story as well.
I would definitely recommend this book to any fantasy/historical lover. I was hooked from the start.
I voluntary received this book to give my honest opinion.
