Sneak Peek + Giveaway: Sisters’ Fate By Jessica Spotswood

It’s no secret that I am a huge fan of the Cahill Witch Chronicles by Jessica Spotswood.  BORN WICKED and STAR CURSED are amazing books that take on magic, complicated relationships between sisters, a dangerous society, and even some swoony (and heartbreaking) romance.  The last book in the series, SISTERS’ FATE, releases on August 14th and I am thrilled to be able to share a sneak peek with you today!  First, here’s a little bit about the book:

** Keep in mind that if you haven’t read the first two books in the series, the excerpt below will be spoilery.**

A fever ravages New London, but with the Brotherhood sending suspected witches straight to the gallows, the Sisters are powerless against the disease. They can’t help without revealing their powers—as Cate learns when a potent display of magic turns her into the most wanted witch in all of New England. To make matters worse, Cate has been erased from the memory of her beloved Finn. While she’s torn between protecting him from further attacks and encouraging him to fall for her all over again, she’s certain she can never forgive Maura’s betrayal. And now that Tess’s visions have taken a deadly turn, the prophecy that one Cahill sister will murder another looms ever closer to its fulfillment.

 

My eyes catch Maura where she stands with Alice next to the pink velvet settee. The severity of the Sisters’ uniform suits my sister; it emphasizes her flame-bright curls and pale skin. As she raises her teacup, her sapphire eyes meet mine. There is nothing of apology in them. Nothing of guilt or contrition.

I want to break her. I want the china cup to explode in her hands, the shards to cut her, staining her creamy skin scarlet.

I want to hurt her the way she’s hurt Finn and me. The second I think his name, the dull ache in my chest rises to a roar. His sweetness when I’m snappish. His revelation that my favorite childhood novel was written by a woman. And a Catherine, no less. His promise that whatever came next, we would work through it together.

He won’t keep that promise. I am the only one who remembers it.

My magic rises, inextricably bound to my anger. It burns through me. I try to shove it back down, but it sizzles through my muscles, scorching my throat, singeing my fingertips. My eyes dart away from my sister’s, but it’s too late.

Across the room, Maura stifles a cry.

I hurry from the room, but not before I see Alice bend to pick up the pieces of Maura’s cup. Maura’s cradling her hand where the jagged china cut through her thin satin glove. “So clumsy,” she apologizes, her clear voice ringing out like a bell, and her abashed smile seems to allay everyone’s concern. No one seems to notice that the cup broke in her hands, before it hit the floor. But Maura knows. At least, she suspects. I can feel the weight of her eyes on my back, right between my shoulder blades, following me out into the hall.

Wow!  That was some teaser!  I am dying to read the rest, aren’t you?  Luckily, Jessica has kindly offered to give away a signed ARC of SISTERS’ FATE!  Just fill out the rafflecopter below and good luck!

    I own the first book in this series. Now I need to get them all and marathon it, avoiding the brutal cliffhangers 🙂

  5. Niiiice! Too bad I’m not from the US or Canada 🙁 But hey August is coming really soon! Can’t wait to read the last book of this amazing series…

  6. I am ashamed to admit this, but I haven’t read this series yet. The worst part? I have the first book sitting on my shelf. Don’t get me wrong. I have wanted to read it numerous times. But I have been trying so hard to wait until the final book is near its publication date to start new series. It is not easy, it kind of sucks, but it is nice in the end. I am excited to know that I can start reading the first two books now! Thanks for the giveaway!
