More about the teaser tour and contest:
There is a teaser on every blog stop on the tour. On Saturday, Kari at A Good Addiction will open a contest form on her blog for you to fill out. In the form will be a trivia question, the answer to which will be in one of the teasers that each blog posted. The winner of the contest will win a special Vanish ARC that has been marked up by Sophie Jordan!! Awesome, right?! For more details, click HERE.
1. The Dragons
I love where Sophie Jordan went with the dragons and their powers. It is so exciting and unique!
Three Words: Will and Cassian.....That is all. ;)
She is one of my all-time favorite protagonists! She can kick some serious butt, but she still has times where she is vulnerable.
4. The Covers
The Harper art department team seriously outdid themselves with the covers. They are so gorgeous and powerful! I would pick both books up just for the magnificent covers!!
5. The Romance
I am in love with "Jill" or "Wacinda". ;) They have such a sweet relationship with each other! Will is sooo yummy. Jacinda got lucky with that one!
And if you *gasp* haven't read the Vanish summary or seen the cover, it is below. ;)
To save the life of the boy she loves, Jacinda did the unthinkable: She betrayed the most closely-guarded secret of her kind. Now she must return to the protection of her pride knowing she might never see Will again—and worse, that because his mind has been shaded, Will’s memories of that fateful night and why she had to flee are gone.
Back home, Jacinda is greeted with hostility and must work to prove her loyalty for both her sake and her family’s. Among the few who will even talk to her are Cassian, the pride’s heir apparent who has always wanted her, and her sister, Tamra, who has been forever changed by a twist of fate. Jacinda knows that she should forget Will and move on—that if he managed to remember and keep his promise to find her, it would only endanger them both. Yet she clings to the hope that someday they will be together again. When the chance arrives to follow her heart, will she risk everything for love?
And now I give you a juicy excerpt from Vanish:
I rest my cheek against the cool glass of the window and watch the night rush past me. As Cassian drives, my eyes strain through the motionless dark, skimming over rock yards and stucco houses, searching for an answer, a reason for everything that’s happened.
The world seems to hold its breath as we slow for a stop sign. My gaze drifts to the dark sky above us. A deep, starless sea beckoning, promising sanctuary.
Mom’s voice drifts from the backseat, low and crooning, as she talks to Tamra, trying to coax a response from her. I peel my cheek from the glass and glance over my shoulder. Tamra shivers in Mom’s arms. Her eyes stare vacantly ahead; her skin, corpse pale.
“Is she okay?” I ask again, because I have to say something. I have to know. Did I do this to her? Is this, too, my fault? “What’s wrong with her?”
Mom frowns and shakes her head at me like I shouldn’t speak. I’ve let them both down. I broke the unbreakable rule. I revealed my true form to humans—worse, hunters—and we will all pay for the mistake. The knowledge presses on me, a crushing weight that sinks me deep into my seat. I face forward again, trembling uncontrollably. I cross my arms, pinning my hands at my sides as though that might still them.
