But to make matters worse, she must go against her best-friend-turned-worst enemy to free him. Whether Ambry likes it or not, drinking those tears changed Gwynn.

I thought the magic system in this book was so intriguing. I have a book crush on Talon :) I'm so excited to see how this series ends!

My thoughts while reading (includes some side commentary)
💧 Ambry, honey... SHE'S GONE!
💧 Can you go back to being dead? You were cuter that way😑
💧 Oh, Jomeini...

There was a lot of action and plenty of emotion, but the best part of this sequel for me was that the story actually progresses quite a bit. Ambry is growing into her role. Though I did start to become frustrated with her repeated determination to ignore other people's warnings, her loyalty makes her very likeable. She is also thoughtful and kind, and it is very easy to root for her.

It was good to be able to understand some characters a little better, like Ren. I'm liking Talon more as his chara

Wow ! If you want adventure, suspense, mystery, This is the series to get your blood pumping, I don’t want to give any spoilers, but OMG !! what’s the saying, keep your friends close but your enemies closer. Friendships can be deadly. Your love isn’t yours, but you still believe in all of them, which one could make you fall. Which one will make you stay and fight? How many of them will you lose? I loved this series. It transports you to a world you never question, because the author makes you fe ...more

The beginning of this one was confusing to me even after I read the first book. A lot of characters were in play right from the start and it took a couple chapters to get them straight in my head again. There was mainly discord in this one. Even the characters working together were not truly together. All seemed to hold themselves away from each other. This could be in part they were each working towards different goals. No Talon Ambry relationship in this one except for one scene that wasn't re ...more

An alluring read!

Dreams are the key to her awakening...
An execution...
To stop the enemy, the dreams are the answer...
But will they survive the dreams?

Such a breathing-taking, original read that keeps you in its hooks right from the start, making you salivate for more and more until you're satisfied.

The writing is so great that it justs flows wonderfully making you addicted to the written word.

Full of enchanted tears, rebellion, magic, a slow burn romance, action, adventure, mystery,

This is book two in the Stolen Tears Series and the series just keeps getting better. The characters are really developing and the storyline just gets more entertaining. . A well written series with lots of detail and suspense. A pleasure to read. I received an advance copy and voluntarily chose to review it.

Really good book

I really enjoyed reading this second book. This author seems to take her time and think through her books.

The characters are diverse and lovable. The main character is a pretty good moral example.

There's violence, but not much sexual stuff. I'd recommend it for ages 14 and up.

I received a free copy for an honest review. This book was so much better than the first one. While I really didn't care for so many point-of-views, I understand why they were necessary. The bond between Talon and Ambry grows just as much as it gets strained. Ambry is growing more confident in herself and is gaining more friends to help her fight back. I cannot wait for the next one!

I have thoroughly enjoyed this book. There is so much action and you will experience a lot of different emotions. Ambry is truly growing as a character. So nice to see. She is tested so much and through betrayal she finds out who her True friends are.❤ ...more

I loved this continuation of the series. It is heartwrenching and heroic. For every step forward it appears to be two backwards, yet they are still surviving and trying to move forward. Can hardly wait to read the next book in this series.

Fight continues. Nothing can be taken for granted. A lot will change.
This story was interesting but I felt for sometimes thats why i have 3 stars isntead of 4 stars.

Perfect blend of intrigue, romance and magic. My favorite combination. I so enjoyed this book and now I can’t stop.

I don't know which is worse: Being sad when a story ends, knowing how much you will miss the characters, or WAITING for the end of the story! I've really enjoyed the first two books of Stolen Tears, and can't wait for the third!

Oh my gosh! What an exciting book! I had a hard time putting this one down and an even harder time accepting it was over when I reached the last page. Lots of action, adventure and emotion all rolled together to create an amazing story. Ms. Pearson has done a fabulous job of continuing Ren and Ambry's story, introducing new friends (and a few enemies) along the way. I am so looking forward to reading the next book in this series!
