Goodreads Synopsis: When sixteen-year-old Ambry Csille’s brother gets taken in a raid, her utter fear and panic should be enough to invoke tears in any normal world. But for Ambry, tears are a thing of the past.
Because of a spell, people can no longer feel emotion; not enough to cry, and definitely not enough to defend themselves against the tyrannical soldiers stealing her people’s magic. A rare vial of enchanted tears chooses Ambry to reverse the spell, and soon she finds herself the target not only of the Arcaians, but of battle-scarred Talon Haraway, who wants the tears for his own reasons.
All Ambry wants is to rescue her brother, but when her tears get stolen, Ambry determines to work with Talon to get them back. Any day the Arcaians could drink her tears. Any day they’ll succeed at draining her people’s magic completely, and all hope will be gone—not only for her brother, but for her world.
My Thoughts: I stopped reading this after I got to the 25% mark. This isn’t a bad book, I just found it boring and confusing. I felt like the plot was really jumpy, going here and there without explaining the world. And I had no interest in the main character. Honestly I think that this could have been a very unique and interesting book, but when it came to actually reading it the main idea of the book was lost.
I wish I could give this a better review.
