Teaser Tuesday: Last Sacrifice


Teaser Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading and here's how it works:

Grab your current read

My teaser this week is from Last Sacrifice by Richelle Mead:

More questions were on my lips when brilliant light suddenly blinded me. My eyes had grown attuned to the darkness, and the unexpected brightness was too abrupt a change. There was a rustling in the trees, a sense of many bodies around us, and as my vision returned, I saw vampire faces everywhere. (pg 136)

LAST SACRIFICE (Vampire Academy #6) from Goodreads:

Rose Hathaway has always played by her own rules. She broke the law when she ran away from St. Vladimir's Academy with her best friend and last surviving Dragomir princess, Lissa. She broke the law when she fell in love with her gorgeous, off-limits instructor, Dimitri. And she dared to defy Queen Tatiana, leader of the Moroi world, risking her life and reputation to protect generations of dhampir guardians to come.

Now the law has finally caught up with Rose–for a crime she didn't even commit. She's in prison for the highest offense imaginable: the assassination of a monarch. She'll need help from both Dimitri and Adrian to find the one living person who can stall her execution and force the Moroi elite to acknowledge a shocking new candidate for the royal throne: Vasilisa Dragomir.

But the clock on Rose's life is running out. Rose knows in her heart the world of the dead wants her back . . . and this time she is truly out of second chances. The big question is, when your whole life is about saving others, who will save you?

Join Rose, Dimitri, Adrian, and Lissa in LAST SACRIFICE, the epic, unforgettable finale to Richelle Mead's international #1 bestselling VAMPIRE ACADEMY series.

  9. Nooo way, do you have LS already Jenny?! I had to restrain myself all day to not scour all through Souther California bookstores to see if it was shelved already. xP

    I can't tell whether to cry or thank you for the teaser, haha! :P Oh well, 8-10 hours isn't too much of a wait, right? :)

  12. I am really looking forward to getting my copy! And what a teaser!!!

    ReplyDelete
  13. Oh that's definitely a tease! I preordered my copy so now I have to wait for it in the mail. It always seems like a good idea at the time because I get it on sale, but then when release day comes I find myself waiting and waiting looking eagerly into my mailbox to see if the book came. It should be here by the end of the week since it was a top 50 preorder, so far this year when I did preorders that were in the top 50 they came fairly quick!

    Here's my teaser.

  21. I have not started this series but I have been told several times that I am missing out.

    I'm doing the teaser hop... no one has stopped by my blog yet so I pulled out my best walking gown and lovely gold slippers to stroll along the path to knock on some blog doors and stop for a chat and spot of tea.

    I really like your teaser :) Yes, the description is wonderful.*giggle* and it made me laugh a bit. Thanks!

    I have a now have an Igor working for me at Mad Steampunkery & Book Reviews, & I currently have a giveaway that will end on the 10th.

  22. Here is my teaser from Witchgrass: A Pipe Dream by Dave Wilkinson (Page 1):

    Most gardeners hate witchgrass. Of all weeds it is one of the most persistent and adaptable. Any small piece of rhizome left in the soil can become an aggressive plant ready to take over the plot. Witchgrass is hard to pull. Roots are deep, and break off easily. Any part left in the ground will grow again. Farmers say the species isn't even good as hay, not as good as timothy or alfalfa. Some call it quickgrass.

    Early New England colonists blamed evil people for this garden invader. In the seventeenth century villagers would speak this way:

    "The surly woman living alone on her dead husband's estate. She goes into the woods and consorts with the Devil. Signs his book. Fornicates with him. Eats mushrooms. She and the Devil send witchgrass to harass the virtuous and the Godly. Let us hang this witch and seize her rich farm."

  27. I have a confession to make. I loved the first three books in this series and then I choked. I decided to make sure the ending is happy before catching up to book six. It's too much angst for me if the ending doesn't satisfy.

  28. I can't wait to read this book! I'm waiting for my copy to arrive at the library. I hope it has a happy ending!

  29. Can you believe it? I have yet to start the Vampire Academy series. Not to worry though, as I bought the first one not too long ago, so I'll definitely be making up for some serious lost time! Great teaser Jenny!

    ReplyDelete
  30. I SERIOUSLY need to get with the times and read this series. I have heard such great things, and this teaser makes me want to read them EVEN more!

  31. Thanks for dropping by my WoW :) I agree, the cover of Vicious Little Darlings really is kind of creepy in a way. I can't quite say why, but the font is edgy and the picture is abstract enough to make you wonder just what it is...
