Overview

Seventeen-year-old Lelea is insane. A military project since age two, she endured surgery after surgery forging her into the ultimate soldier. Somewhere along the way, the dreams haunting her nights spilled into her days, and now she talks to creatures long dead and hears music in silence.

Through her visions, Lelea discovers her sanity isn't the only thing in danger. Her dreams call her to save the world from General Sythe, a power-hungry monster, but the secret to freeing her people lies in restoring dragonkind to the world. An impossible task since dragons have been extinct for thousands of years, if they ever existed in the first place.

Stealing a spaceship, she searches the galaxy for ancient scrolls leading to a stash of dragon eggs, but instead she finds a group of rebels and a budding romance. With the General in pursuit, she must convince her companions to trust her. If only she could overcome what is broken inside her...

Meet the Author

Throughout her childhood, Rita J Webb travelled around the country with a book always in hand. Rita finally settled in Ohio where she attended college to study Computer Science and then began a career as a Software Test Analyst, a beautiful title for an empty position.

Rita's love for books and great stories pushed her to start writing when impending layoffs forced her to reconsider her dreams and goals. Having tested software for ten years, she wanted to create something more meaningful than a test manual, something that would move hearts.

With her husband TJ, Rita home-schools her three girls, who keep her busy with art, science projects, books to read, and walks about the park.

    Mix of Sci-Fi & Dystopian

    Tears in my opinion is a mix of sci-fi and dystopian.

    The main character Lelea is physically strong but emotionally unstable. She has little self esteem and thinks she is crazy. She sees things no one else does, she can enter into dreams and talks to dragons.

    Her entire life she has built to be a solider, she's endured many surgeries to make her into the ultimate solider for her father the General. She finds ways to rebel against the General all the time. She wants life to be back the way it was many years ago before her father took over. Lelea and her sister along with a few others steal a space ship and take off to find a way restore their land. Along the way she finds love and the magic to free her people from the General.

    While I loved this story I felt lost at times. I wasn't sure what was real and what Lelea was dreaming. There were parts that I didn't think need to be said in a young adult novel but that is just my opinion. There were things I found a little disturbing but in the dystopian end of it I imagine they could happen. Although I would never hope they would in real life. It is a good book but somewhat different than what I normally read. The ending felt slightly rushed and some story lines I would liked to have seen develop more. I am hoping that there is going to be a sequel because while it could be a stand alone, there is some unanswered story lines. Overall I am giving it 3.5 stars.

    This was given to me by the author for review. It did not affect my review in any way.
