Teaser Tuesday (47): Waterfell (The Aquarathi #1) by Amalie Howard

teasertuesday13


Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.
Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
• BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (Make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
• Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

This week’s Teasers come from the following book:

Title:  Waterfell 
(The Aquarathi #1)
Author:  Amalie Howard
Publisher: Harlequin Teen
Published:  October 29, 2013
Purchase:  Amazon | Barnes & Noble

Summary:

THE GIRL WHO WOULD BE QUEEN

Nerissa Marin hides among teens in her human form, waiting for the day she can claim her birthright—the undersea kingdom stolen from her the day her father was murdered. Blending in is her best weapon—until her father's betrayer confronts Nerissa and challenges her to a battle to the death on Nerissa's upcoming birthday—the day she comes of age. 

Amid danger and the heartbreak of her missing mother, falling for a human boy is the last thing Nerissa should do. But Lo Seavon breaches her defenses and somehow becomes the only person she can count on to help her desperate search for her mother, a prisoner of Nerissa's mortal enemy. Is Lo the linchpin that might win Nerissa back her crown? Or will this mortal boy become the weakness that destroys her?

My Teaser:

"'Struggling to breathe, I hear the voice. My father's voice. 
Run, Nerissa, run. All is lost. Never return."

I got this amazing book for Christmas from the fabulous TeresaMaryRose at Readers Live A Thousand Lives, and I am LOVING it!  I have so many questions, and I can't wait to discover the answers!

I'd love to know what your Teaser is!

  1. This sounds good McKenzie.I am curious about Nerissa and why she needs to run. Sorry I have been neglecting you all. My daughter is getting married in my backyard in September and I have been so busy. It seems I only get around to visiting blogs back which is shameful.
