This time I'm choosing a sequel to a prequel. I know, that sounds weird. But I was able to score an ARC of Rift, the prequel to the Nightshade series by Andrea Cremer at BEA this year. You can read my review of it here. And I LOVED it!!!! It left with a cliffhanger, but in a good way. In a way that I want to go on and find out what happens next! Here is the blurb from Goodreads.com:
Everything Conatus stands for is at risk. Hoping to gather enough resistance to save their order, Ember and Barrow attempt a desperate escape. But fate offers little mercy. When their mission is exposed, the couple face relentless pursuit by the supernatural horrors that act on the commands of Eira’s ally: the mysterious Bosque Mar. A shocking revelation forces Ember out of hiding, sending her back into the heart of dark magic at Tearmunn keep, where she must convince her old friend Alistair of her love or face dire consequences. Ember’s deception offers the only chance for the resistance to succeed, but what she discovers in the shadows beneath the keep will shatter her world and bring about the Witches’ War.I loved the characters in this book. Not sure why, but I almost liked it better than the original series. Not that the original series wasn't great!! What book are you waiting on this Wednesday?
