An epic saga of heart-stopping romance, devastating secrets, and dark magic . . . a world where everything you love can be washed away. The first book in the new series from the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Fallen series
Never, ever cry. . . . Eureka Boudreaux's mother drilled that rule into her daughter years ago. But now her mother is gone, and everywhere Eureka goes he is there: Ander, the tall, pale blond boy who seems to know things he shouldn't, who tells Eureka she is in grave danger, who comes closer to making her cry than anyone has before.
But Ander doesn't know Eureka's darkest secret: ever since her mother drowned in a freak accident, Eureka wishes she were dead, too. She has little left that she cares about, just her oldest friend, Brooks, and a strange inheritance—a locket, a letter, a mysterious stone, and an ancient book no one understands. The book contains a haunting tale about a girl who got her heart broken and cried an entire continent into the sea. Eureka is about to discover that the ancient tale is more than a story, that Ander might be telling the truth . . . and that her life has far darker undercurrents than she ever imagined.

LAUREN KATE is the internationally bestselling author of the TEARDROP and FALLEN series. Her books have been translated into more than thirty languages. She lives in Los Angeles. Visit Lauren online at laurenkatenovels.com.
Seventeen-year-old Eureka Boudreaux survived the car accident that killed her archaeologist mother, but she is left physically and emotionally battered. Once captain of the cross-country team, she has abandoned the sport she loves and now lives with her unsympathetic stepmother, her caring but ineffectual father, and her beloved four-year-old twin stepsiblings. Eureka is also torn between new, intense feelings for two young men: childhood best friend Brooks and Ander, an attractive stranger who seems to understand her better than anyone. Upon inheriting a pendant, a handwritten book in unidentifiable language, and a mysterious stone from her mother, Eureka and friends discover her true legacy—as a descendant of Atlantis whose tears have the power to raise the lost city. In this series opener, Kate sows the seed for several more titles filled with magic, action, and romance. The Louisiana setting lends appropriately oppressive humidity to a story dominated by water in all its changing forms. Romance and mystery readers will enjoy the smooth predictability of the many plot twists, made fresh by a promising backstory and atmospheric setting. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: Expect a multiplatform marketing and publicity campaign for the #1 New York Times best-selling author of the Fallen series. Grades 8-12. --Debbie Carton
