I love a Good Fairy Tale! This is a fantasy written by Connie Lansberg. Be sure to read the review, watch the trailer and enter the Giveaway at the end of this posting.
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 find The Perfect Tear and release its healing power into the land, she will become an accomplice in the destruction of all she loves.

This was a fun story to read. It took me a little bit of time to get into the story line but once I got into it I enjoyed it. I liked the characters. They were easy to visualize and follow. I could really feel what they were feeling and all of their emotions. I could also understand what each character was about. I could actually feel myself there in the story.
I think the title fit the story quite well and I liked the book cover. It was a picture that made me really curious to what the story would entail and gave me a feeling about the story.
Over all, I thought it was a very good read.
I would give this story a literary rating of 4.5/5
