I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, being a Book Reviewer and only reading/reviewing books I’ve either won from the numerous giveaways I enter or have been written by members of the internet support group I belong to can cause me, as is the case with this book, to read/review the second book in a series without reading the first one and missing the events which had transpired prior to my coming into the storyline. The following is my honest opinion for this book.
We’ve all heard the story of Atlantis and how it had mysteriously disappeared into the sea, in Lauren Kate’s book “Waterfall” the tears of one lone girl, Eureka, has caused most of the earth to be flooded; and now the evil king of Atlantis, Atlas, is bringing Atlantis back thanks to power contained in these same tears. The king is the not the only one she needs to worry about as she several exiled sorceresses provoking her as well.
In the fantasy world the author created, Eureka is also the one with capable of returning things the way they’d been before she’d caused everything; but first she needs to learn more about the powers she possesses. She meets up with Ander, a Seedbearer, who assures her he will help her find another Seedbearer, Solon. Romance now kicks in as Eureka falls in love with him, but when she meets Solon and an exciting, heart-breaking love triangle ensues.
She finds an enchanted pond which gives her an understanding, provided Eureka has the willpower she can use her newly gained knowledge to cause the downfall of Atlas. However, if the broken heart she’s suffered rules her mind, then he’ll obtain the energy he needs to have Atlantis rise again.
I found the romantic thread in the storyline to be quite somewhat powerful at times, adding to the appeal of this book for which I’m giving 5 STARS.
