Product Description


If you read nothing else this year, grab a copy of Neptune's Tears, switch off the iphone, ditch the ipad and lose yourself in a story that will make you laugh, gasp, hold your breath and cry - all in the space of one chapter. Susan Waggoner has broken the mould with this inventive story set 200 years in the future - fast-paced and utterly believable, the story of Zee and David is much more than an adventure; it is a tender and challenging exploration of the steadfastness of human love, the untapped depths of human abilities and the realisation that for all of us, this moment is the only one of which any of us can ever be certain. After the flood of dystopian novels of recent years, Neptune's Tears brings a fresh look at a future world and leaves the reader toe-tappingly impatient for the sequel. --Rosie Rushton

Product Description

It’s 2218 and Zee McAdams is in her second year as a healing empath at a busy London hospital. When a mysterious young man becomes her patient, Zee’s hard-won calm is pierced. Her attraction is complicated by the fact that David Sutton is an alien, a group whose presence – and purpose – on Earth is deeply mistrusted. When London and other cities experience a wave of anarchist attacks, Zee and David are brought even closer together. The more time Zee spends with David, the more she likes him – and the more questions she has. Even as their relationship deepens, Zee knows that David is still hiding something from her. Will Zee have the courage to follow her heart, no matter where it takes her?A remarkably gripping novel about star-crossed love and future life.

4.0 out of 5 stars Adore the world that the author has created 6 Sep 2012
By Shazjera TOP 1000 REVIEWER
We're introduced to how much Zee loves her job as an empath at the Royal London hospital and her connection with patient Ellie Hart. Ellie is infamous with her connection to The Neptune diamonds. We're given the background to the mining of the diamonds and how they came to be named Neptune's Tears.

Zee divests before going on duty and finds out she's been reassigned to patient David Sutton. Refusing treatment and wanting to check out, on meeting him there is an instant connection. Emotions affect the ability of empaths and straight away Zee recognises she's been `pierced'. She can only get so close to his energy though before he repels her, pushing her energy away. David contrives to be close to her by helping out after a shock bomb and they spend more time together. Always though David pulls back. He lies to Zee and there are more hidden layers to what the truth really is.

Zee finds out she has another talent as a diviner, a talent so rare only one in ten million people have it. Denying it at first, when she realises she could have saved peoples lives from an earthquake/tsunami, she chooses to train and volunteer. It is this gift that saves many lives during a festival in Cornwall although causes a personal loss to her. It is after the disaster that David finally tells the truth.

I absolutely adore the world that Susan Waggoner has created. The process of divesting is all to do with energy and visualisation, as is Zee's job. I loved the healing bridge! Zee and David's love is also a connection on an energy level. The shock bombs that terrorists use are a unique invention. Not damaging buildings but penetrating skin and causing internal injuries ...

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply stunning <3 21 April 2014
I was a bit concerned about the middling rating for this but since I stumbled on this at my local library decided that I'd give it a read since it's been on my to-read list forever.

I loved it! Yes, I get it, the story is fast paced and a lot seems to happen but personally sometimes that's best, you can really waffle on too much in a book and waffle is what Susan certainly doesn't do (thank god!)
Pay attention to the time that passes between chapters and events and it makes so much more sense.

The love story in this was beautiful and determined. A good old fashioned 'love conquers all' tale. And it's been ages since I read a good one of those. Add in the sci-fi, the futuristic Britain, deaths, bombings, empaths, diviners and sexy David and you have an amazing novel.

Seriously, there was not one character that I didn't feel a connection with by the end and the author does it in just over 200 pages. Now I've read books 500 pages and haven't connected with the characters. So reserve judgement, open your mind and get swept away in this gorgeous, imaginative and futuristic novel with a hell of a twist at the end :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Gripping and original. Recommended. 23 Jun 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I thoroughly enjoyed this very original science fiction romance. I found it gripping and very entertaining. I could really feel the chemistry between Zee and David. My only complaint is it ended very abruptly, although is clearly part of a series. I can't wait to read the follow up.

3.0 out of 5 stars Timedance book 1 27 July 2014
By Sarah (Feeling Fictional) TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Neptune's Tears is the start of Susan Waggoner's Timedance series which is set 200 years into the future. Zee is training as an empath and working at a London hospital where she helps patients heal using her abilities. She loves her job and enjoys helping people so the last thing she is looking for is a relationship, especially when falling in love could have a devastating effect on her powers. She meets David when he is injured and under her care in the hospital, although it is forbidden for her to get involved with a patient she finds herself unable to forget him even when he has been released to return home. As their paths keep crossing they fall naturally into a relationship but there is more than one obstacle in their path. The main one being that David is an alien and he is only on Earth for a limited time before he will have to return to his home world and leave Zee behind forever.

I found Neptune's Tears was a really fast paced and fun book to read, there was a lot I liked about the world that the author has created and I was fascinated by the idea of empaths who are able to heal people with their powers. I enjoyed reading about a future where no major disaster has taken place and the world hasn't fallen apart around our ears, it meant the author was able to include lots of cool technology without having an apocalyptic feel to the story. That doesn't mean lives are easy though and there are a group of anarchists who seem determined to cause terror amongst the population and they have quite terrifying weapons at hand to do it with.

I found the main characters very easy to like, Zee is an admirable and brave young woman and I enjoyed learning about her abilities.

By Sarah
(Source: I received a paperback copy of this book for free on a read-to-review basis. Thanks to Daphne from Winged Reviews, and Piccadilly Publishers.)
17-year-old Zee is a healing empath, which means that she works in a hospital and uses her special gifts to heal people.

One day she is sent to see a patient who is being difficult, but when she enters the room she gets two surprises. The first is that she is strangely attracted to the patient - David, and the second is when he tells her he is an alien.

Aliens have lived among humans for a while, but Zee hasn't really met many. David's being an alien isn't the biggest problem though as Zee finds herself falling in love with him. Love is very detrimental to an empaths career as it messed with their ability to feel things, and falling for David puts both Zee's heart and career at risk.

David has even more surprises in store for Zee though, and Zee's adventures are only just beginning.
What else is David hiding though? Why can't they be together? And what does the future hold in store for Zee?

This story was okay, but I think it's probably more suited to a younger reader, maybe age 8 - 15, as the story seems quite simplistic, and the pace is quite slow.

Zee was an interesting character. She obviously cared a great deal about her work and her patients, and had absolutely no intentions of ever falling in love, least of all with an alien. It was nice to see how Zee's feelings totally took her over, even when she didn't want them to, and how swept away she was by her new found love for David.
I didn't really get that much of a feel for David, other than knowing that he was secretive and clearly hiding things from Zee.
