Raids splatter across the news–Arcaian soldiers are stealing magic left and right, using it against the people they steal it from.
When sixteen-year-old Ambry Csille’s brother gets taken in one of these raids, 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.
This book. This book was, in one word, amazing. I absolutely loved every second of it. It was such an adventure, I can’t wait to see what happens next, I need the second book. The plot, the characters, the setting, it was all just unbelievable. I couldn’t get enough, I finished quite fast and decided to write this review as soon as I was done reading it, instead of going to bed. It was so good that I’ve chosen it over sleep tonight. I recommend it, it comes out tomorrow, so you don’t have to wait long. It’s a choice you will be glad you made!
