Eleanor, a timid orphan with an extraordinary musical gift has just turned sixteen. She has no clue to her real purpose, but she refuses to become a subservient old maid, like the miserable nuns she grew up with. Mother Superior has no intention of letting her leave–her songs are the only thing keeping the grey mist at bay, and the only thing that comes between the nuns and starvation. Her best friend Audrey begs her to run away with her but where would they go? The world outside the Abbey is barren and dangerous, and the roads are awash with bandits. When Eleanor discovers the boy she loves is a prince and not the village boy she knew him to be, she is mortified, but it is the impetus she needs to take action. Eleanor decides to take her chances and in the act of running away, meets her destiny.
The girls find themselves in a strange land full of unknown dangers where they are met by an ethereal creature, Tsera, who gives Eleanor a choice. Go home, never to sing again and wait until her world dies or, risk everything to find The Perfect Tear, a crystal that contains the Third Vibration and the only thing that will stop the destruction of her world. Eleanor is horrified to discover that a powerful being from Tsera’s world, Lerion, also needs to find the Perfect Tear.
Tsera gives them one clue. Find Mother Nyx.
Eleanor is terrified but willing to accept Tsera’s challenge. She must continually conquer her fear and self-doubt to allow her instincts to help her find the Third Vibration before Lerion does. If her fear subdues her inner knowing, Lerion will use her and her extraordinary gift to destroy all that she loves. With the reluctant help of the grotesque creature known as Mother Nyx, Eleanor manages to outwit Lerion and return with the Perfect Tear. However, like the notes of a song must connect to create a perfect melody, Eleanor must discover the connections needed to create the harmony between her people, which will truly save her world.
A wonderful story within a story. A surprise ending and a potential for a sequel. I enjoyed trying to out think the plot and failed.
I truly enjoyed this book and very much hope for a sequel.
The Perfect Tear is certainly a different kind of fantasy story.
