Rift by Andrea Cremer (Nightshade Prequel #1)
Release date: 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.
Why I want this book:
1.) I loved the Nightshade series, and if it has to do anything with that series, count me in.
2.) This shows the beginning of the Keepers and the Searchers, and I wouldn't mind learning more about their history.
3.) Beautiful cover art.
