Teaser Tuesday 9-11-12

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. 



  1. Nice one.
    By the way, the Rise of the Nine is amazing, and its NOT the last one, I am so eager for the next, there is at least 2 others I think listed at the author site at GR, but one of those may be a short one, or something, not sure, but for sure a Lorein Legacies 4 is there, no title. And there was a small cliffhanger, not super bad, but sure not done, lol

    Here is my post Tuesday Teaser and Intros

  2. I have not started this series yet but really really want to. I need to make time for them. Thanks for the great teaser.

  3. So, so, so, so excited about The Essence. I loved The Pledge. Until I got to the very end of it, I thought it was a standalone myself. I always think that I am excited about standalone's, but sometimes I love the story so very much that I wish it were a series. That is how I would have felt with the Pledge, so I am definitely excited that the story continues. I just wish I didn't have to wait so dang long for it!
