It’s 6 months till INHERITANCE: How about a teaser?
Today it’s exactly six months until Inheritance will be on sale at a bookstore near you (virtual or real)! Six months seems a long way away, but actually, it will be over in the blink of an eye. HOWEVER! I know how hard it can be to wait, so starting today, every month on the 18th 24th for the next six months I will post a teaser from Inheritance for your reading pleasure.
A note on spoilers:
These are teasers from Inheritance, so if you haven’t read Adaptation yet,
YOU WILL BE SPOILED.
Proceed at your own risk!
That said, while these do contain spoilers, I have tried very hard to make the teasers suggestive rather than definitive. Sure, these are words that will be in the final book, but they are taken out of context. That means you should not make any assumptions about what will ultimately happen by the end of Inheritance. (Although go ahead and speculate!)
Since this is the internet of 2013 and we’re all about visuals these days, each teaser will be accompanied by a hand-lettered-and-illustrated-by-me card with a one-sentence quote from the teaser. I hope that you enjoy both!
Without further ado …
GO AWAY IF YOU HAVEN’T READ ADAPTATION
UNLESS YOU WANT TO SPOILED
Amber’s eyelashes were dark and wet. Her mouth was slightly open, her bare lips the color of coral, and the smudge of pink on her cheeks looked like someone had swept their thumbs over her skin before cupping her face in their hands. There was something ethereal about her at that moment, something fragile and unearthly, and for the first time, Reese saw another world in Amber’s face.
“If I could go back and tell you everything at the beginning, I would. I hope that someday you’ll forgive me. I just—” Amber’s voice broke, and she took a quick, deep breath. “I miss you. I miss you so much.” She reached for Reese’s hand, and Reese was so stunned that she let Amber take it.
