Waiting On Wednesday – Rift (Nightshade Prequel #1) by Andrea Cremer

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine,
and specifically spotlights upcoming
novels we can’t wait to read.
Our WoW for this week is…

Chronicling the rise of the Keepers, this is the stunning prequel to Andrea Cremer’s internationally bestselling Nightshade trilogy!

Before Calla Tor, there was Ember Morrow

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.

Expected Release Date: August 7, 2012
Publisher: Philomel Books/Penguin

    So far I've only read the first book of this series, but since I've enjoyed that one, I don't think I'll wait too long to read the others (as well as this prequel). Great pick! :)
