Waterfall by Lauren kate

Synopsis

Eureka’s tears have flooded the earth, and now Atlantis is rising, bringing with it its evil king, Atlas. Eureka is the only one who can stop him, but first she must learn how to fight. She travels across the ocean with Cat, her family, and Ander, the gorgeous and mysterious Seedbearer who promises to help her find Solon, an enigmatic lost Seedbearer who knows how to defeat Atlas.

Once on land, Eureka is taunted by gossipwitches, a group of displaced Atlantean sorceresses, and ambushed by locals struggling to survive amid the destruction her tears have wrought. And she feels no closer to facing Atlas or saving the world when Solon lets slip that love is Ander’s weakness, and that any affection he feels toward her makes him age faster.

Trying to make sense of the dark world her sorrow has created, Eureka receives startling insight from an enchanted pond. Her bewildering reflection reveals a soul-crushing secret: if she’s strong enough, Eureka can draw on this knowledge to defeat Atlas—unless her broken heart is just what he needs to fuel his rising kingdom…

In Waterfall, Eureka has the chance to save the world. But she’ll have to give up everything—even love.

Review

Waterfall the 2nd book in the Teardrop series by Lauren Kate, picka up there Teardrop left off . The world and everything in it is disappearing in a ocean of tears.  Eureka , Ander, Cat her dad and the twins go on a journey to try and save the world. Swimming to Turkey to locate a lost relative of Ander’s who they hope will be able to advise them on what to do next.  However what the discover will change their lifes forever.

Anders uncle Solon instructs Eureka in the tasks ahead of her all the while the threat of Atlantis rising rests heavily upon her.

In the meanwhile Atlas, who is determined to make Eureka produce one final tear, still  has possessed Eureka’s best friend Brooks. 

The setting for the last part of the book was a complete contrast to what the characters had been exposed to previously.   

The love story shared between Eureka and Ander continues and you continue to see love shared between her family and friends.
Because this book shows that love is shared not just between lovers but fathers, siblings and friends. It also raises the question what  would you do foe the ones you love ?
 
Waterfall is an epic tale of family love and sacrifice.
