Okay, since when is it ‘pictorial’ and not ‘pictoral’? Nobody informed me of this! (My excuse for misspelling it in the PICTORIAL review below. I was lucky enough to receive an e-copy of this book in exchange for an honest review courtesy of the author and YA Bound Book Tours.
So yeah, you can blame school if you can’t read anything on there- but pictures say a bit (or a lot). But seeing as that is a bit more… abstract than my usual reviews, here is a synopsis from Goodreads:
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. Eleanor knows Mother Superior has no intention of letting her leave–her songs are the only thing keeping the grey mist at bay. 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. Eleanor finally 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 to Edward, the boy she loves, 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.
