Lauren Kate is fast becoming one of my favourite authors.I love her characters and the interaction of them.I love the story line and suspense.This book is based on the lost land of Atlantis and is written,in my view in the typical style of the author.I am hooked.

Thoroughly enjoyed Teardrop! The characters were as engaging as Luce & Daniel (from the Fallen series- her previous works) and I can't wait for the next installment!

Already an ardent fan of bestselling author {of the Fallen series and additional novel The Betrayal of Natalie Hargrove}, I was immensely excited upon encountering Lauren Kate's new novel; which is the first in a *new* series!! The exquisitely beautiful cover evokes all imaginative thoughts as to tempt and entice you inside the pages of this striking Young Adult novel. `Can everything you love really be washed away?' Contained within this thought-provoking, deeply meaningful story is such sincerity that you can relate and connect to the character's story, for this tale professes truism from the very heart and soul.

`...that person you love can physically leave you but what will always remain within, are those deep feelings and overpowering emotions connected to that person. {Reminiscent of the string that is attached to a rib of Rochester's with the other end being securely fastened to the rib of Jane Eyre's}.'

This novel touched me inwardly and the consequential words moved my mind, so as to evoke such understated visions and images that are personal to each individual reader. Having lost someone whom I loved I was able to draw from this book warmth, hope and an acute connection with the main character Eureka. That person I loved and lost still remains nestled within a corner of my heart for all time, even as life continues and one contemplates rallying again. A quote that expresses this insinuation perfectly is ~

"Sirius Black: It's cruel that I got to spend so much time with James and Lily, and you so little. But know this; the ones that love us never really leave us. And you can always find them in here.
[Puts his hand to Harry's heart]"

- This is when Sirius Black talks to Harry, at the end of Harry Potter and the prisoner of Azkaban film 3.

Format: Kindle Edition
I can't even express how excited I was to get an early review copy of this book! If I'd hadn't been in the middle of reading The House of Hades, I would have started reading this straight away! Teardrop is one of those books that I've been eagerly anticipating, and it didn't disappoint. It was full of mystery, suspense and I was hooked from start to finish.

So our main character Eureka has been through something tragic. Her mother drowned in a freak accident and Eureka wishes she was dead too. Her and her mother were very close and Eureka feels like she has nothing to live for without her. She's struggling and finding it difficult to adjust to her new life living with her father and his new wife. I felt so much sympathy for Eureka. She's not dealing very well with her mother's death and the fact that her step-mother is forcing her to do things she doesn't want to. She doesn't feel like she can tell her father how she feels without being judged or without being put on 24/7 supervision. She's trying her hardest to get on with her life, but what happened isn't something you ever forget about. But I did admire Eureka. After she received her mother's artifacts, it gave her something to live for, something to unravel. And then Eureka started to discover more about herself.

I was extremely cautious of Brooks. At the start he just seemed like a normal guy who really liked his best friend. But after that day at the beach he changed. He became more confrontational and aggressive. I couldn't work out why he'd had such a sudden change, but I just knew that it wasn't good. I was very wary of him after that. And then we found out what happened to Brooks and I just felt so bad for him. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that there's something that can be done to save him.

Being a huge fan if the Fallen Series I got excited when I saw the release of Teardrop, Lauren Kate's latest series. And I have to say I was not disappointed. Teardrop tells the story of Eureka from the point of her mothers death when she was saved at the last moment by the Seedbarer sent to kill her. Enter Ander, who has spent his whole life watching her, learning about her, all with the aim of stopping her from fulfilling the prophecy foretelling her coming and the rise of Atlantis. But in spending his life observing her, he fell in love. Now I'm not going to tell you more of the story line as you really need to enjoy the twists turns and surprises for yourself. This is a great story and I'm excited about the prospect of the second and more books in this new series.

Lauren Kate was one of the first authors I discovered after discovering the paranormal genre, and I completely devoured her Fallen series as soon as they were released. So you can see why I would be excited to dive into something else written by her. Teardrop sounded absolutely amazing; however, I'm so completely torn with it because, no matter how much I wanted to love it - I didn't it.

Eureka is a teenage girl who was told never to cry by her dead mother. She never understood the reason behind the warning but since that day she's never shed a single tear. It's not until a book is given to Eureka does she start to unravel the secrets of her destiny.

I really liked the idea of this story, I thought it unique and refreshing, however all of that is swallowed up by the rest of the story, a story that in all, doesn't really stand out from any other paranormal story out there right now. The story is slow paced and not put together very well, it's jumpy in parts and also there's far too much telling and descriptions. Often the story jumps from the Eureka thinking about a past moment or something a character did in the past - but she's talking about it for a page or two, or even longer. It takes you away from the story far too much and because it happens so much, I ended up skimming them parts. It wasn't until about a third of the way through the story, that I still had absolutely no idea what was going on. Apart from the mysterious book, Ander's strange encounters with Eureka and Brooks' involvement - not much happens. By the time Eureka finally figures out the big secret, it's safe to say I'd completely lost all interest in the story.
