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 findThe PerfectTearand release its healing power into the land, she will become an accomplice in the destruction of all she loves.
Epically fascinating! I've never quite read a book like this that blends a futuristic sci-fi world and medieval times! Completely original, the author weaves a spellbinding web as she immerses you into her flawless worldbuilding. The characters were each unique with palpable emotions and complex personalities. The story is somewhat like a sci-fi angels vs demons set in medieval times if that makes any sense. Sounds strange, but the author completely pulls it off! With plenty of intrigue and tons of plot twists, I was left sitting on the edge of my seat as I devoured the vivid descriptions the tale spooned out. This was a REALLY great read and I can definitely see how they're making it a movie next year - can't wait to see it!
