Eleanor is a singer. Her songs keep nature in balance, but when they are stolen from her, a grey mist descends and her world fails to thrive. This timid orphan is thrust into a course of action she never asked for, nor envisioned. Set against a backdrop of abandonment, loss and betrayal, she must find her way through strange and dangerous landscapes in her desperate search for the Perfect Tear, a dark crystal which holds the future of her world. But, Eleanor is no savior. She is a simple girl with strong instincts and she must learn to trust them. Just like the notes of song must connect to create a melody, Eleanor must discover the connections needed to create the harmony required to truly save her world.
Buy the Book:
A unique and beautiful story.
The Perfect Tear centred around Eleanor and her connection to Earth and Tsera and the power of song. I wouldn’t say this was a book I couldn’t put down, the overall plot and flow of the story worked really well but it took me quite a while to really gel with the story.
I would have liked more interactions between the romantic interests. The idea of insta-love is overridden by the time jump, in which the relationship develops. The settings combined a medieval-esque fantasy Earth and an inter-dimensional supernatural world.
Overall, this was an enjoyable book linking song and a protagonist who is thrown into the middle of something that is much bigger than anything in her previously small world. If you enjoy a protagonist who gets thrust into a supernatural wold, magical objects and a mission to save the world I suggest you give The Perfect Tear a try.
