New Shadowfever Exerpt!

Yay!! Karen Marie Moning has sent out a new excerpt for her upcoming release Shadowfever, the final installment and exciting conclusion to her Fever series. I am so very excited about this book. I was bummed out that the release date was pushed back to January 18, 2011, but the book is almost double in length of the previous books. Whoot! I am in store for some seriously good reading!!!

Here is the latest teaser:

My ghosts whisper to each other across me but I can’t hear them. There’s only one way I’ll ever be able to hear them again.

I turn my head for Darroc’s kiss.

As his lips close over mine, the duality inside me threatens to tear me in half, and if it succeeds, I will lose my best chance at accomplishing my mission.

I hurt.

I need punishment for my sins.

I bury my hands in his hair, and channel all those feelings into passion, pour it into my touch, kiss him hard, violently. I turn us both around and slam him up against the wall, kissing him like he’s all that ever existed, kissing him with a full measure of humanity. It’s a thing a Fae can never feel, no matter the form they wear—humanity. It’s why they crave us in bed.

He staggers for a moment, pulls back and stares down at me.

My eyes are wild. I feel something inside me that terrifies me, and I just hope I can hang on to the edge of this cliff I’m on. I make a sound of impatience, wet my lips and shove at him.

“More,” I demand.

When he kisses me again, the last part of me that could stand myself dies.

O.M.G!!! What is going on? January can't come fast enough, LOL!!!

I hope it doesn’t get pushed back again. But twice as long is good – it really needs to be long to wrap everything up.

What is going on and who’s kissing Darroc? I hate to say it but I think it’s Mac. So we’ve got like, 6 months of teasing excerpts ahead. ^-^

OMG That's hot stuff!

I've only read the first book in this series...but looks like I haven plenty of time to catch it up. LOL

Okay wait! Darroc was Mac's sister's man! Plus, Darroc's Fey powers were taken away by the Fey Queen... so he's mortal. Of course he could be ingesting Unseelie. Ohhh who knows?

Leslie - I think it's Mac's sister, maybe from her diary. I hope it's not Mac!!

Ames - You are in for a treat with this series. Whatever you do, don't read the books back to back no matter how tempted you are. It will seem redundant.

Hilcia - LOL, yeah I think it is Mac's sister in that excerpt, not Mac. At least I hope so!

~ames~ said...

LOL Ok, I'll take your word for it. :P

Tricia said...

I'm dying to know who this is? I hope it isn't Mac I like the idea that it may be her sister instead.

Jill D. said...

Tricia - I am with you. I really hope this isn't Mac either in this passage.
