She loves Jonas, a ‘bottom feeder’ as titled for purposes necessary to maintain their way of life. She’s not supposed to love him. She’s the daughter of an Elder. It would be the end of her should her feelings every be found out. The lengths she goes to in order to seek him out on land, as briefly stated in the synopsis above, are remarkable. But isn’t that what any of us would do for love? The crazy thing is that I wound up rooting…well, I can’t tell you just yet. Go read it and let’s discuss!
Pauline has really outdone herself with this story. While it’s not a full length novel, she has packed so much depth into this incredible tale that it doesn’t feel too short or that it’s lacking anything. I feel like I just finished reading a full length novel in record time! The story has relatable and likable characters, and then characters that you straight up want to bury in the ground in an unmarked grave far, far away. These pages are filled with emotion, tension, and action that kept me glued to the pages.
I highly recommend One Thousand Tears to all fans of fantasy and dystopian genres. The mashup of the two is beautifully crafted and wonderfully cohesive. And while we’re not left with a major cliffhanger (because we all know those drive some people insane), there will be more to Adelaide’s story…
First we get introduced to the main character - Adelaide, a young female Mer, and her everyday life in the ocean. We also find out about Jonas -- a bottom feeder -- who Adelaide has a crush on. Since she is the daughter of an Elder - Jonas is the last person that she should have feelings for. If her father found out --- OOPS - I have to stop, because I refuse to write spoilers. And with as quickly and awesomely as this story goes, spoilers would be each to do. But believe me, when I say that this book is so so so worth reading!!!
Now to wait for the next book in the series -- Oh PLEASE - there has to be a next book!!!
I think the only thing that could have possibly made 'One Thousand Tears' better would be if this story had been a little longer, giving the characters just a little more time to show their development and to show a little more development of the Intiates Trails. But I can honestly say there was never a moment where I felt like the story was being rushed or the characters relationships were being developed without reason.
There are so many more layers to this story and the person that Adelaide finds herself becoming I can only hope that the story will continue because this is definitely one story I never want to end.
I was given a copy of this story for my 100% honest opinion.
We watch Addy (the name she is quickly given) grow up, learn to lead, and learn to care for others. The story is sad due to the cruelty of Mer and humans to their own people, but Addy and her newly-defined family provide a ray of hope. Some of the turns of events are a little too convenient, but they keep the story moving.
This was a quick read (one partial day) and was interesting enough to keep me going. There are a few distracting typos or editing errors, but not enough to stop me from getting to the end.
The relation of the title to the story is murky.
I'll definitely consider another book by this author.
