Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along, just do as following:

·Grab your current read
·Open to a random page
·Share two (2) "teaser" sentences from somewhere on that page
·Be careful not to include any spoilers so as not to ruin the book for others.

Make sure to share the title and the author so other TT participants can add the book to their TBR piles.

Rift (Nightshade Series)
Chronicling the rise of the Keepers, this is the stunning prequel to Andrea Cremer's internationally bestselling Nightshade trilogy!

Sixteen-year-old Ember Morrow is promised to a group called Conatus after one of their healers saves her mother's life. Once she arrives, Ember finds joy in wielding swords, learning magic, and fighting the encroaching darkness loose in the world. She also finds herself falling in love with her mentor, the dashing, brooding, and powerful Barrow Hess. When the knights realize Eira, one of their leaders, is dabbling in dark magic, Ember and Barrow must choose whether to follow Eira into the nether realm or to pledge their lives to destroying her and her kind.

With action, adventure, magic, and tantalizing sensuality, this book is as fast-paced and breathtaking as the Nightshade novels.

My Teaser ~

"Barrow's fingers were barely touching her, but the light contact could have been an iron brand. Ember didn't dare move nor breathe. All she could think about was the way his hand burned into her skin but with a fire that didn't cause pain, just an awareness of her flesh and her blood, alive with sensation, like nothing she'd ever known." (ARC, pg. 26)

Check out my full review of Rift.

  9. Great teaser, enjoy!

  10. I'm sooo on the fence about reading this series. I liked Nightshade. Wolfsbane bored me with all the history. And then someone ruined the ending to Bloodrose for me. I know I shouldn't hold it against this prequel series, but I can't help it. :( Great teaser, regardless. :P

    1. Jen- I know EXACTLY how you feel. I loved Nightshade, but couldn't bear to finish the series when I heard how it ends.
