Today I am proud to be sharing an excerpt of The Sundering with Bookish Brunette's Blog Tours:
by Megg Jensen
Series: The Swarm Trilogy
Publication: October 1, 2012
Purchase: Barnes and Noble/Amazon
Genre: YA Paranormal
After defeating the Malborn and losing the person she loved most, Lianne escapes to Chase’s homeland. With her appearance forever marked by death, Lianne feels like a monster both on the outside and the inside. She retreats into herself, fearful of what she’s become.
But she can’t hide forever.
The Malborn, damaged but not broken, send a deadly message to Lianne. They are coming for her and now she’s brought danger to a peaceful land that believed they’d driven the Malborn from their shores forever. Lianne must force herself to trust again and make the ultimate sacrifice to save everyone she loves. In a world ruled by whoever harnesses the most powerful magic, no one can be trusted – no one is safe.
“I shifted in bed, inching closer to Chase until our lips were only a breath apart. He’d told me once he wouldn’t kiss me unless I asked and he held true to his promise. He didn’t move at all, other than his chest touching mine and retracting as he breathed silently.”
