Waiting On Wednesday [#45]

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases we're eagerly anticipating.

Rift (Nightshade Prequel #1)
Author: Andrea Cremer
Expected Publication: August 7, 2012

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.

I'm so excited to read this! I loved the Nightshade series and I'm really interested in reading the prequel series about the rise of the Keepers! And I'm even more excited because I'm getting to borrow this from a friend soon! AHHHHHHH!!!!! I hope this book is as good as the nightshade series (and I'm suspecting it will be!)

What are you waiting on this week?

  5. It says it's a prequel to Nightshade, it doesn't sound anything like Nightshade to be honest. Still it sounds amazing, I never even knew she was coming out with a new book.
