Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Stop by there, to see other blogs participating as well! :)
I'm reading a handful of books right now, but I'm actually going to pick something random off my to-review shelf instead...ah, look where my hand stopped:
The Essence by Kimberly Derting, the second book of The Pledge trilogy.
Expected publication is January 1st, 2013! It's a New Year's book. :)
"It wasn't until I found myself lying facedown in the dirt that I came fully and completely awake. Until that moment, I'd simply thought I was having another one of Sabara's dreams. The vague buzzing, a blur of voices and shouts, could have easily been coming from inside my own head.
Now, however, I could taste the stringy meat Jeremiah had brought back with him--some sort of scruffy-coated animal I hadn't been able to identify, a meal that hadn't settled well in my stomach in the first place--against the back of my tongue. I gagged on the gamey flavor as I struggled against an immovable weight that pinned my to the ground.
A hand shot out to cover my mouth and my eyes went wide."
-excerpt from just about the middle of my ARC.
Are you excited for this sequel? At first I was kinda bummed The Pledge wasn't a standalone because I am sure it would have been an excellent one, but now I see how the loose ends could be raveled into another two books before tying off, I just hope they're as good as the first.
