Eureka was in a freak car accident with her
mother, who was killed.
She didnt cry at her mothers funeral, the importance of her
not crying having been emphasised by her mother years ago. No one understands her, her
therapists are stupid, and the only people she can talk to is her best friend Brooks. She
begins to fall in love with him but then Anders shows up, drop dead gorgeous and always
where Eureka is.
Anders is part of a clan who watch the people descended from a goddess and
capable of destroying the world. His family caused the accident that claimed the life of
Eurekas mother and nearly took hers. Anders has one task to kill Eureka. He
can either save the girl or save the world. Hes obsessed with her though, and as
Brooks acts strangely and become distant, Eureka falls for him.
Interesting concept but it felt familiar and I realised Id seen the
teardrop in a movie POTC 4 I think. I liked the mythology and mystery but
didnt like Eureka. She was full of teenage angst and I wanted to smack her and tell
her to stop whingeing, other people have gone through worse. I felt it was a little creepy
how Anders had been watching her since before he or she could talk. Stalkerish
and reminded me of Twilight and Edward watching Bella sleep. Not a book that grabbed my
interest but it should appeal to Twilight fans./p>
