Such a Secret Place: Review

From Goodreads:
Raids splatter across the news--Arcaian soldiers are stealing magic left and right, using it against the people they steal it from.

When sixteen-year-old Ambry Csille's brother gets taken in one of these raids, her utter fear and panic should be enough to invoke tears in any normal world. But for Ambry, tears are a thing of the past.

Because of a spell, people can no longer feel emotion; not enough to cry, and definitely not enough to defend themselves against the tyrannical soldiers stealing her people’s magic. A rare vial of enchanted tears chooses Ambry to reverse the spell, and soon she finds herself the target not only of the Arcaians, but of battle-scarred Talon Haraway, who wants the tears for his own reasons.

All Ambry wants is to rescue her brother, but when her tears get stolen, Ambry determines to work with Talon to get them back. Any day the Arcaians could drink her tears. Any day they’ll succeed at draining her people's magic completely, and all hope will be gone—not only for her brother, but for her world. 

My Review:
This was a really fantastic book! Such an incredible world, where the people are cursed to be without tears, characters, Ambry, who's had her brother taken by the Arcaians, Talon with secrets, but who wants the tears...yeah! Really great to read this book!

This world was really different then our own. Like, there wasn't electricity, there was magic. And that magic is slowly being stolen. Which is bring things into chaos, which is perfect for a book, but not so great for those that are in that book!

There was the question of why the tears chose Ambry, but apparently that's going to be revealed in the next book, which I can't wait for, because while a whole ton happens in this book, well, I know there's a whole lot more left to come!

And then there was that ending! There was so much going on, and then it just ended! Like in a snap, everything was over, almost nothing was resolved, which is just has me itching for reading the second book, like, now!

Really, really great book, and yeah, I enjoyed it a whole ton!
