“Get away!” I screamed swiping the wisps. “Get back!” I gulped a lungful of air and dove back into the pond, shooting to its deeper center. But it didn’t matter; I wasn’t escaping, only buying time.
Silver Eve by Sandra Waugh, the sequel to her debut novel Lark Rising (link will take you to my review), picks up where its predecessor left off. Waugh’s writing reminds me a lot of Juliet Mariller, so if you’re a fan of the writer, I’d definitely recommend this author. You can read my full review here. Cover is linked to Goodreads. Excerpt taken from page 65.
“After the death of her beloved, seventeen-year-old Evie Carew wants nothing more than to lose herself forever in Rood Marsh. But when the old seer Harker tells her she’s meant for a greater task, Evie’s curiosity keeps her going. What is this shell that Harker insists she must find? And why can’t she stop thinking about the handsome Rider Laurent, the man who saved her on the worst day of her life?
Soon Evie discovers that she is the Guardian of Death, the second of four Guardians who must awaken to their powers to recover four stolen amulets. Together, the amulets—Life, Death, Dark, and Light—keep the world in balance. To take back the shell that is Death’s amulet, Evie has to learn to trust her Healer instincts and understand that love never dies.”
